Allison has got no divine right to walk back in. 

Agreed. I think we may have a competition for the #1 shirt on our hands, folks.

He’s been fantastic. Genuinely could not ask for any more from him. Great saves again today, comfortable with his feet, took a lot of pressure away from the defence at key moments. Seems like a player who is making the most of his big chance, proper mentality.

I like Adrian, but I'm not ready to go that far yet.

Massive upgrade on mignolet

This, though.  100% this.

The idea that we got a price for Mignolet, probably made a significant saving on wages and got a significantly better player makes it, in an under-the-radar way, one of the deals of the summer.

Fantastic for us these first few games of the season. I think if Mignolet had made that error against Southampton his head would have been all over the place in the other games and he would have been in the press banging on about how he's going to improve.

 

At least Adrian saves shots. Mignolet never seemed to save many shots even if they are blasted straight into his chest he would always find a way to let them in. 

 

I've probably jinxed Adrian now to make a massive mistake against Sheffield United.

Probably goes down as our best number 2 ever. And he's only been here 6 weeks! 

How dare you ignore Pegguy Arphexad like that. Have you seen his medal collection?

Keep the ball away from his feet and he's a great back up keeper. Another great first half save today 

Other than the massive cock up the other week he’s been really good on the floor.  It’s gone a similar way to Alisson in that I had the fear he would just either carry on making unnecessary risks or go the other way and just launch it every time.  He seems to have found the perfect medium at the moment.  Some of his saves and decision making have been fantastic and he’s generally really good on crosses.  Alisson has got a job on his hands which is exactly what we want.

Alison is prone to brain farts and taking unnecessary risks, makes the defence nervous at times. Adrian on the other hand seems to be very cool and makes good decisions with minimal fuss. Id keep him in the side as long as possible.

He’s done really well.

 

Especially as he’d been training on his own all summer, was here five minutes with barely any chance to train with the squad before he was straight in the team for the best keeper in the world, and has played every game since for a side who have to win virtually every time they play.

 

It’s not like he had a summer with us and then months of being integrated into the squad and how Klopp likes us to play out from the back. Credit where credit is due, so far.

I'm waiting for one of Adrians chips over the oncoming striker to end in tears.

He's done great but will still be happy when Alisson pulls on the shirt again.

He is a great backup - Alisson has no competition for the number 1 though - that is silly talk.

 

This. Alisson is more alert to setting up quick breaks and is better with the ball at his feet. Adrian has been very good in his absence though. Like I've said before, playing with the first team will stand him in good stead for the cup competitions or in case he's called up to the first team again once Alisson is back.

He’s been really good, is undoubtedly a massive upgrade on Mignolet and since the mistake against Southampton has been generally really solid with his feet. However I think we forget sometimes how good Allison actually is.

 

There was a couple of occasions yesterday in that last 10-15 minutes we’re the ball came back to him and he cleared his lines, despite there being a pass on to Trent at right back. It may not have even been noticeable on the telly but the ball got launched and came straight back at us. Alison would have picked the pass out and enabled us to keep possession and more control of the game. 

 

That’s not a criticism of Adrian, I’d rather him launch it if he feels as though him making the pass is too risky. It’s more a comment on how Allison’s quality has such a big impact on our ability to control games and play calmly from the back.

Adrian has done very well, but it’s lunacy to talk of him retaining the short when Alisson returns. The latter gives so much more to the team and his positioning is unparalleled. I’ve never seen a keeper make so many potentially difficult saves look utterly routine.

Part of the reason why he's better than Mignolet is that he doesn't have the baggage he did. We had watched him for 5 years. We knew he was shite, he got no leeway with errors because all confidence in him was eroded. This guy doesn't have that and when he makes a mistake, it didn't effect him like did with Mignolet.
