What a genius move by AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe to make Aaron Ramsdale our number 1.

Considering he hasn’t played above league 1 (apart from the odd England under 21 game) he acts and plays like he’s been our team for years and I think he just edges Mark Travers in terms of talent.

We could have wasted £30 million on Butland or another ‘experienced’ keeper but Ramsdale’s value must be rising game on game and wouldn’t surprise me at all to see him as our next player to get called up to the senior England squad, Jordan Pickford hasn’t started the season well…

Loved him going absolutely mental at Callum Wilson on Saturday when he wanted to take the kick early and no one was going forward. He’s bound to make a couple of howlers sooner or later but I don’t think it’ll knock him back.

Wouldn’t it be great if he could cement himself as our number 1 for many seasons to come?

It’s one position we have really struggled with consistency for years.

Your say…

He definitely deserves to at least be in the discussion for an England place. I think the only question mark you’d have over him is how he reacts mentally to a mistake. He hasn’t made any mistakes yet so we don’t really know yet!

The fact he is playing games as the no. 1 for the U21’s might be more beneficial than 3rd choice in the full squad for the time being. – Join the conversation, click here.
