Hart is just a decent international keeper, but there are plenty of them around. Often I get the impression that he believes his own hype (our media acts like he's the second coming) far too much.
Unfortunately he has been acting increasingly arrogant ever since Euro 2012. He wasn't completely convincing in that tournament (Ironically his worst performance being against Sweden) mostly due to his handling, but the turning point for me was his behaviour during the penalty shoot out with Italy when he treated the whole thing like a joke, not to mention roaring in Pirlo's face.
He has been very suspect at times for Citeh this season and certainly isn't performing to his usual standards, barring a couple of European cup games. He needs to be careful because he's not in a situation where people like Rob Green are backing him up anymore, Ruddy and Forster are genuine competitors and certainly not a million miles away from him in terms of ability.
