It’s as if the whole of the footballing profession doesn’t know what they’re talking about and the fans are the experts.
Easy to dismiss the fans who see him every week rather than the L1 managers who have maybe seen him twice home and away. Lets not forget the expert football writers who’s opinion is based on an annual visit to the stadium of light once a year.Talk me through how it works adge? Does he just have a memorable face? Does he have good games against other teams so the managers write him down?
Doesn’t explain why Burge benefits does it? Why does Burge come off better under that analysis?Easy to dismiss the fans who see him every week rather than the L1 managers who have maybe seen him twice home and away.

I think that just confirms my long held view that the standard of goalkeeping in L1 and L2 is dire. Wilson is League 1 level and actually pretty good for League 2, so it is unfortunate for him that he has been so repeatedly sidelined.Go and have a look at the comments.
Sunderland fans are gobsmacked by this.
The thing we have to remember is that any decent keeper in the lower divisions will be snapped up pretty quickly by Championship or Premier League teams as their number 2 or 3Fairly sure this is the one voted on by an independent panel/media.
There's far, far better goalkeepers in League 1 (Maxwell, Palmer, Pym etc.) but, at the time the votes were cast, I think back in February (which is mad considering how much of the season is still to go) Burge had most clean sheets in the league & a very high save % and Sunderland were absolutely flying so was an easy pick for some.
I think Trott is now number 2 or 3 at West Ham
Journalist done a lot of research for this one !Middlesbrough could turn their attention to Sunderland goalkeeper Lee Burge as they look to bring in a new shot stopper this summer, a source has exclusively revealed to Football League World.
