Hi Eds?,

Is Klopp looking to replace Mignolet?!
I’m seeing links about Roma and Brazil GK Alisson.
Can you shed a bit of light on that one?

Happy new year btw.

Its a shame neither Karius or Ward gets a chance if Alisson joins. But can't complain too much either as Alisson looks one hell of a keeper. I just hope he will be worth the money and the sacrifice of Ward and Karius if he joins us. The interest seems real so hope we get him.

Ed1 is the summer transfer window the more realistic time we will replace him?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate.}

If he is looking to replace him, why keep playing him? It's pretty much fact he's not good enough, but if you trust Karius for the CL then why not at least give him a go. I understand if klopp doesn't trust him too, but he's younger, had less of a chance to prove himself, barely got a run of 10 games, and he was returning from an injury when he did, in a new league and country. And he's looked decent when playing recently.

If we had VVD and a better keeper from the start of the season. well we still wouldn't win the league cause city is running away with it.

Exactly pak, as klopp said when he first joined, you can control how good your own team is but not the quality of opposition! I take comfort in the fact that even if van dijk and alisson had come in summer it probably wouldn't have made a difference. Just focus on enjoying some of the phenomenal football we are playing and look forward to the champions league knockouts :)

ed1, if klopp isn't sold on migs, is he then just protecting karius or ward by not playing them regularly?

{Ed001's Note - Karius yes, Ward was just cover and a major mistake by Klopp to keep him at the club rather than letting him go out on loan again.}

Ed do you think JK realised he has made a mistake with Ward?

{Ed001's Note - I would think so, but I think he believes it had to be done.}

I'm slightly surprised by this as I had come to the assumption he didn't rate karius (which shocked me as he brought him in all not that long ago) . If I'm honest I have found how it rather bizare how the whole GK situation has been dealt with.

I have no problem with people making a mistake just so long as they learn from it.

Really interesting that ed1. Klopp strikes me as someone who'll just do what he does, but I wonder if there is some mental fragility to Karius then that Klopp knows he needs to nurture him through? Also in this context, is it more of a factor to protect a keeper cos they are literally stood next to the crowd all game?

{Ed001's Note - he just felt Karius was being affected by the morons in the media and the morons in our support who were giving him abuse when he reacted to some of the comments.}
