Long time lurker, first time poster. With the on going issues we're currently having between the sticks, I'm interested to hear who people feel from past Liverpool teams would compliment our playing style the best?
For me it would be Pepe Reina. Although prone to his wild moments at times, I thought his distribution at his peak was simply superb.

On a side note, I know Ed001 likes to knock up the occasional boxing profile. If he's not already on the list, I think Pernell Whitaker deserves a shout. The greatest boxer in history in my personal opinion.

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate added him to the list as he wasn't on it.

I would go with Brucie I think, though Reina would be good too.}

Welcome DK. Pernell Whitaker is a great shout mate.

I would definitely go with Reina, but that's clouded by Brucie being right at the start of my Liverpool supporting journey and my memories of him being rather cloudy! From what I've seen of his character, I reckon him and Klopp would've been a match made in heaven!

Ed001, a bit leftfield for you, but would a Brad Freidel, as he became at Blackburn, be one you think would fit into our current style? I really rated him at Blackburn and regretted us not seeing THAT Friedel during his time with us.

{Ed001's Note - I don't remember him being good with the ball. Great shotstopper though.}

Pepe Reina. Distribution was incredible. Watching him hit passes from 50 yards onto people’s chest in warm ups was my favourite nerve stopping hobby before a big game. Never missed.

Have you ever done Joe Calzaghe ed? Great record, although some would say it’s devalued by fighting boxers towards the end of their careers. Loved him as a boxer though. His determination to win. Saw him get up and turn it around quite a few times. Met him once.

Was in London, sitting outside a café, admiring the erm, view of a stunning figure. All of a sudden she clocks me and whispers something into her fella’s ear. I notice it’s Joe Calzaghe. I thought ‘great, here we go, of all the people. ’
He comes over, says ‘here, my missus reckons. ’ I’m about to run. ‘My missus reckons you look like that fella from N*sync! ’ I still, to this day, don’t know who she meant, but I assume like I did then, that it was Justin Timberlake. I said ‘you better be careful, she’ll get you beaten up talking like that, which is funny because you’re a dead ringer for Carl Froch. ’ He belly laughed and shook my hand, took a photo. Good guy.

What a shot stopper though ed01. He became immense. Was clem no good at distribution and sweeping? I would still pick him. I wouldn't mind him just rolling the ball out yo dejan and virgil.

{Ed001's Note - he was not very good at all with his feet.}

I didn't know that Ed. What has changed? Why is it do important to be good with your feet these days? Sorry if I sound dumb. Thanks for your reply.

{Ed001's Note - because you can't pick the ball up from a back pass now.}

Oh, I am dumb. Sorry Ed, of course. Lol. Brilliant answer! Sometimes the answers can be a bit cryptic, especially with ed025. A bit philosophic even. Yours was bang on the head of the nail ed01. Thanks for taking the time to educate an old fool.

{Ed001's Note - that's ok, I am always happy to educate Ed025.}
