Caoimhín Kelleher

Recommended Posts

Think the truth is somewhere inbetween regarding Reina. He was definitely not as sharp towards the end of his time here, but his shitness has been overexaggerated. I haven't got the stats to back it up, but much like in a couple of Mignolet's seasons, we gave up A LOT of 1v1's during that time (a lot of it because of our glacier-slow CB's).

Klopp has confirmed that Caoimhín will start the final. 

Yeah I like this decision, I know there’s plenty on here that will say we should start our best team in a final, but he’s earned his place for this one.

Who is ahead of Kelleher for Ireland?

Gavin Bazunu, on loan at Portsmouth from Man City. He's brilliant too. Kelleher was probably ahead of him in the pecking order until he got that stomach injury last year.

He’ll be alright with me calling him Kev though, yeah?

As long as you call him it in an Irish accent, you'll be sound Rich!

Really? I've never heard of him myself.

How is his name pronounced. Mad Irish spellings, like that sexy sports journo Caoimhe oniell, Caoimhe is pronounced Keeva. 

And also Kweeva. Strange bur true.

Nah, Kelleher hasn’t put a foot wrong and has been every bit as important in the Carabao as Alisson has in the league. We’d be starting next season with Adrian as backup if Klopp were to go back on his word (he won’t) here, and rightly so.

He put a few feet wrong versus Leicester, to be perfectly honest.

 

Adrian would have been hounded out of Merseyside for that.

Yes, really. Maddison's shot went straight through him.

Simply looks a very good goalkeeper. He’s not Alisson level of course, especially when it comes to one on ones and shot stopping. But better with his feet, which is very important these days. He’s extremely comfortable on the ball, and it’s actually not easy to tell which is his stronger foot.

 

Edit: Wonder if Klopp will consider playing him in all cups next season, including the CL. He said the club needs to make sure they make Kelleher want to hang around, and something like that may be the way to do it.
