He's a free signing who counts the likes of West Ham and Betis as the biggest clubs he's played for. You won't get the props you're desperate for when we'll all be so surprised to find out he's not absolutely amazing.

So you're admitting he isn't very good? That's progress.

No, he's a decent backup keeper which is nice because we got him for nothing, which is what reasonable people (not you) are saying.

His price tag doesn't come into it for me.  We got Joe Cole for nothing, he was shit too. We got Milner for nothing, he's excellent.

 

He's either good enough to play in goal for us or he's not (he's not), everything else is just noise.

No, it's called context which is kind of important. And performance-wise, he's been fine, which makes your thing with him even more bizarre.

 

You actually picked a fault with his incredible save of Mertens' chance with some bogus explanation of why "actually it wasn't that great, derp derp" like you're some high-level goalkeeping coach. That's all the indication needed that you're acting like an idiot for a reaction.

It was a decent save, nothing more. Any keeper would be disappointed to have been beaten at their near post from that angle.  It looked spectacular because it was unorthodox to save it with his right hand. He had to save it with his right hand because he mistimed his dive. Just my take on it as a fan, not an expert.

I think I've accidentally wandered into the "I'm a hysterical fanny thread".

We got rid of Mignolet who was fuck up on a stick just before the window closed. We got this guy for free who had the full expectation of getting splinters in his arse from spending the next couple of years sitting on the bench. Tragedy strikes and AB is injured - long term.

So he's made some good saves and some bad attempts but who the fuck else could we have got just for back up for one of the worlds best keepers? Or would you have preferred we recalled Karius?

We’ve got Lonnie Donergan?

I take the point that he's been thrown in at the deep end but the whole point of the switcheroo with Mignolet is that he would be an improvement.  He's not an improvement, he's a cut price alternative who in my opinion is struggling having to play every game.  If he was just cover it would be fine but he's not, he's having to play a lot of games including the CL which is the pinnacle of the club game.  He is not at that level.

He's an upgrade on Mignolet,a pretty big one too. The save he made was fantastic and one Alisson would also be proud of. TK in talking nonsense ahocker.

In which areas of his game is he an upgrade on Mignolet?  In the last two games he has faced six shots on target, three of which have gone in.  So shot-stopping seems to be suspect.  His distribution leaves a lot to be desired (e.g. Leicester), he doesn't start counter-attacks well and his aerial command of his area isn't great either.  So how is he an upgrade?

He can kick a ball. 

And he can make saves. The biggest myth in football is Mignolet is a good shot stopper. Look where he's playing now there was no decent clubs after him when we were moving him on cause he's not that good.

Been reading about my boy Adrian on the West Ham forum. Opinion seemed to be split on him during the Moyes era. Half of them thought he was the Messiah because he scored a penalty for them once and also ran the length of the pitch to celebrate a goal. The other half thought he was average at best and only got praise because he wasn't Joe Hart.

 

There were some interesting comments about him staying on his line and poor positioning, which I agree with.

He's a back up keeper, I'm not sure what you expect.

It hasn't been easy to masturbate to the last couple of pages, I must admit.

 

Really? I’ve spent the last five minutes cleaning up the jizz pile after I almost literally exploded at the mere mention of Loris Karius.

He’s got unfinished business here.

    • Can I just reiterate that Martin Tyler is a cunt. He will have been up since 4am practising his 'Maaaaaarsheeeeaaalll' scream. 
    • Everton player obstructs a defender. Didn’t look anything in it to be honest, but would have been excellent for the fume if West Ham had equalised.
    • Goal line technology is perfect, offsides a tad more complicated in some cases but generally could be handled by technology. Everything else those incompetent officials seem to be fucking up royally.    If they're this bad with the video technology available, then it goes to show just how utterly bad they were before, although that won't be news to most football fans.    Today will be interesting, this and the city game are the ones that I've been concerned about. This one because let's be honest here, the mancs spent years getting favourable decisions from officials. VAR has proven so far it's anything but logical and as previous posters and myself have said, is just one ref covering another refs arse.    I don't know which of the idiots they have in the VAR booth today but it's them that might fuck us over.     
    • Not like the English to make an absolute meal of something so easy. 
    • Jürgen Klopp has achieved many things in his time at Liverpool, but a win at Old Trafford is one box that he is yet to tick.

      Under the German’s tenure, the Reds have registered at least one league away victory against  Man City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal.
        Currently the away record against Man United sits at two draws and one defeat. 

      The two teams also met in the Europa League in Klopp’s first season where Liverpool ran out 3-1 winners on aggregate with the second leg locked at 1-1.

       Liverpool’s last victory on the red side of Manchester came five and a half years ago (3-0).

      Liverpool head back to the home of their arch-rivals in fine form, having not dropped a point all season from their eight league games.

      In contrast, Man United are in somewhat of no-mans-land currently sitting in 14th position with just nine points on the board.

      But as we have seen many times in this fixture, ladder positions doesn’t mean a lot when it comes to deciding the end result.

      While some managers will try to downplay the record, Klopp has embraced it, seeing it as another challenge for his highly ambitious squad.

      The Mirror reported Jürgen as saying:

      “Winning there would be a big next step. It’s not a step we have to make otherwise we cannot develop, no. 

      “But, of course, for our own history with me it is obviously something we have not achieved yet.

      “This team wrote their own story and made their own history and this would be another step.   "But we cannot make it by simply talking about it.

      “ We have to go there and play the best football we can play, with the biggest balls, being ready for each challenge, fighting for every ball, all that stuff. That is what we have to do.”  

      One player who will also be looking to break a drought against this opposition is Mo Salah with the Egyptian yet to score a goal or register a assist in four games.

      Klopp believes it is not a major worry for his star, and just like the team, he would see it as a challenge to embrace with all he has.

      “It is difficult to know what he’s thinking. If someone had told me he’d never scored against United I would have said, ‘Really?’ 

      "I suppose the more you go without scoring against an opponent there may be one moment when you start scoring against them.

      “All these games are big tests. I don’t see it as a specific test for him, but, yes, it is a big test. 

      "And sometimes there will be ‘old-school challenges’ and you have to be ready for them.

      “That is how it is. But there is a reason for these stories, just like our history against United away, such as the stadium or the intensity of the game.”

      Three points for the Reds and a brace for Mo would certainly equate to a pretty special Sunday.
