Another good article on Dean Henderson's rise to the top.

A decent little section in the article too about his time with us, with some quotes from Bignot;

Thought he left because of an incident with Bignot or was that a myth? Apparently Henderson sent him a shirt recently.

When he first came to us watching him warm up and the intensity involved it was obvious he was different stuff to a league 2 keeper

Definitely the rumour that did the rounds was a fall out between Bignot and Henderson.

For me Henderson should be the absolute shoe-in for that England jersey in the Euros.  I know Southgate likes Pickford but he's too error prone for me and is quite poor at the basics.  I think it's his distribution that Southgate likes, wanting his sides to play out from the back, but even that looks suspect now.  Regardless, it's no good playing out from the back if you can't stop basic shots.  Henderson on the other hand is just a very, very good all-round goalkeeper.  His distribution is as good as Pickford's, he commands his area, is quick off his line and is great at the basics.  The litmus test for me on a goalkeeper is how far up his defence will play.  Within 10 minutes of his debut here, our backline stepped up 10 yards.  He ordered them to do so and they responded.  He did the same at Shrewsbury, Sheffield United and now at Man Utd too.  Pickford doesn't get that level of respect or trust from his defenders.

Pope is a decent enough goalkeeper but if Southgate genuinely wants his sides to play out from the back, he shouldn't be anywhere near the side on that alone.  His footwork is very poor.  If he plays it completely changes the way England have to play.  Might get away with it against lesser sides in qualifiers and friendlies, but when it counts he'll be caught out.

Some really good points Diehard, but this is the big one for me. As someone who used to play in net, and coach keepers, the outfield team's confidence in their keeper can almost be felt in the atmosphere.
I also completely agree that Henderson should be starting for England this summer, but unfortunately i don't think Southgate will play him. Pope playing in the last round of international fixtures confirmed that for me.

Could it have been the experience he gained from Macca during his stay here that made him what he is ?

Interpretations of the rumour added a whole new meaning to the words ‘goalkeeper’ and ‘coach’.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Henderson reminded me a lot of when Joe Hart came up against us when he was playing for Shrewsbury. They're the only two that I've seen as young players in lower league football who gave you the confidence they would go to the top. If he isn't England's starting goalkeeper at the European Championship, he should be.
