Ederson was worse yesterday. Not sure if that's comforting or worrying because we are going to have to shell out a heck of a lot of money for a decent keeper by the looks of it if £35m buys that.

Mignolet doesn’t deserve to be dropped IMO, not for Karius anyway. He wasn’t very good at all yesterday, but I suppose we’ll find out at the end of the season whether he is up to it or not.

What. He made one mistake and was punished by Salah with a great finish. But I guess this highlights what is wrong with peoples view on keepers. Make one mistake and they are the weakest link and need replacing.

True, but the pair of them are to goalkeeping what Fred and Rose West would be to Airbnb.

The confidence of knowing he has 10 or 11 games on the bounce regardless of what he does will work wonders. The way I see it is every Klopp signing has done well apart from him and he's the only one that hasn't had a run in the team. Robertson and Ox were written off immediately too, its a good job the manager has more patience than the fans.

 

We need to accept we're not buying a keeper in January and get behind this guy. Mingolet is dead and not a minute too soon. One way or the other we will know in May if we need 1 or 2 keepers.

He's woeful. He's not error prone. He's just woeful at basic keeping.

 

This.  He was a spectator at a couple of set pieces yesterday, particularly the header against the bar. Cant recall him ever making a crucial save that turns a game.  Mig is also an un-pollishable turd but slightly less odorous,

He's just terrible, unfortunately. Mignolet is in no way good enough for us, but I can at least see how a scout might have thought him good enough to be a professional footballer. Karius plays like he won a competition to be a footballer for the day, or like he's a striker moved into goal after the actual goalkeeper got sent off with all substitutes having been used.

We've only lost 1 league game of the 15 Karius has started. He may be a terrible shot-stopper but he allows the defence to be more organised and comes for more stuff than Mig. Not good enough yet, obviously.

Mig tends to play well in the games directly after he comes back from being dropped. Hopefully whenever that happens he'll be good enough to see us through til the end of the season.

 

As long as it doesn't trick Klopp into believing he's turned into a decent keeper and we end up stuck with him again next season.

Erm..... He is fucking shit.

I really don't get it with him. His reflexes have totally gone to shit and his positioning is ridiculous. I think it's now certain we'll buy a keeper in the summer and rightfully so.

 

But that said, Mignolet doesn't deserve an ounce of sympathy or the benefit of the doubt anymore and the latter is still something Karius should be afforded, at least until the summer.

He seems to be caught flat footed every single time.

That’s a confidence thing. 100%.

 

I think a long, uninterrupted spell in the team will see a lot of the kinks ironed out of his game. It just doesn’t look the the fans are willing to let him have that.

I'm sceptical but Hopefully you're right.

This.  If he can sort his feet out and give himself a chance of getting a good spring to his dive he might save a few.  

 

I haven't written him off but he needs to cut that shit with his feet out.

Mignolet is fine as a backup, certainly as capable as most top half backups if we get a top quality number one -- whether he would accept it or not (or is on too big a wedge for that) do not know

He had 3 shots to save yesterday and didn't get anywhere near any of them, and didn't even try to get to Otamendi's header which, fortunately, went on to the bar. He was awful. He just does not stop round things from going in nets.

I would give him the benefit of the doubt with Otamendi's header, I think he knew it wasn't going in.  

 

The one he needed to do much better on was the equaliser.

Personally I'd sell both. Plenty of cheap enough keepers who would be a better back up than Mingolet and reduce wages. Our main problem is that both Mingolet and Karius see themselves as first team keepers for a top club, unfortunately they haven't got the quality to be so. 

 

We need to bring in a main Keeper worth his salt and a second who is prepared to be back up.

Not sure any keeper would have got to that header. I am not defending Karius one bit and think we need a far better keeper but this he faced 4 shots and 3 went in is a bit lazy. Sanes shot was a rocket and maybe his positioning was suspect but there was nothing he could do with goals 2 and 3. Citys keeper faced what 6 or 7 shots and 4 went past him while Manes off the post shot had him beat.
