Those Joe Hart jeers are wrong and he deserves an England recall

first_img Picking a Championship player would be a step back for England 6 huge blow RANKED 6 Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade MONEY Good statsFor those of you who love a stat, it can’t be denied this one makes for impressive reading.Hart has made 34 saves in the league so far this season – more than any other Premier League keeper. 6 REVEALED ADVICE Hart was far from his best at West Ham last season and at Torino the season before His inconsistent performances cost him a place in England’s 2018 World Cup squad in Russia in a tournament where the Three Lions impressively reached the semi-finals.Hart’s career appeared to be lacking direction until he received a Premier League lifeline and completed his £4million move to Burnley just before deadline day in the summer.The 31-year-old has been brilliant for the Clarets so far, most recently putting in a man-of-the-match display in their crucial 2-1 victory over Cardiff last weekend.And I believe, that although Hart received jeers of “England’s no.4” at the Cardiff City Stadium, he is due an England recall and here’s why. Hart has been the best performing English goalkeeper so far this seasonI’m not suggesting Hart should be starting England’s next two games ahead of Jordan Pickford, but his performances for Burnley definitely put him up there with the best keepers Southgate has at his disposal.Southampton’s Alex McCarthy and Fulham’s Marcus Bettinelli have acquitted themselves well this season but their impact on their clubs this season cannot be compared to Hart’s.Hart is already in a better situation than two of Burnley’s English goalkeepers (Heaton and Pope) and I believe he should be in the England squad ahead of Jack Butland.The Stoke stopper was in much better form last season and deservedly made the World Cup squad but now he’s playing Championship football where the Potters are 17th in the table and struggling. BEST OF 👐 Joe Hart is enjoying life at Burnley pic.twitter.com/9qohllfqJ7— Premier League (@premierleague) September 30, 2018Hart is already keeping out England rivals at BurnleyHe probably would not have been given a chance to prove himself so soon if Nick Pope wasn’t injured – Burnley may not have even tried to sign Hart if Pope was fit.But Hart has taken this opportunity that second or third choice keepers don’t often get and has proved himself to be more than up to the job.He kept clean sheets in his first three matches for Sean Dyche’s men which has kept Tom Heaton out of contention for the no.1 spot and if Hart carries on as he is, Pope will not be getting in either when he returns to fitness. silverware Hart’s recent performances show he still has plenty to give for the national team Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade center_img Latest Football News REVEALED I’m not pinning all of Stoke’s woes on Butland but should a team of England’s calibre really be considering players who aren’t playing top-tier football?Southgate surely has to pick Hart.Since receiving his World Cup snub, it’s seemingly lifted a weight off his shoulders and Hart is playing with the freedom and happiness England fans have come to know and love once again. 6 Hart is a big personalityEngland boss Gareth Southgate is clearly an advocate for pushing through a young group of players, but having an older and experienced head in the dressing room would do the team the world of good.Some might point out that Hart will be 33 by the time the next major tournament (Euro 2020) rolls around but England’s games against Croatia and Spain this month are in the Nations League which are a pretty big deal!And let’s not forget Hart, who won two Premier League titles with Man City, is a player who has competed at the highest level for years so having him around to offer support for the younger players would be extremely helpful to England’s cause. 6 Hart has good leadership qualities that could rub off well on the younger England players This season shows there’s still life in Hart’s form yet 6 England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won He’s been written off by many, but now it looks like the old Joe Hart is back.After being told he was not part of Manchester City’s plans by Pep Guardiola in the summer of 2016, the goalkeeper had loan spells at Torino and West Ham where he really struggled for form.
