In 2013/ 14 season, migs started his liverpool career with 3 clean sheets, 3 1 nil wins and a penalty save against stoke in the opener.

I like Allison but he got lucky against Brighton that some of his reckless play did not get punished or it could have been really embarrassing.

He was brought in to be solid and he needs to be solid.

The save in the 88th min was good but something that would be expected at this level.

Ryan's save against firmino was better (just giving perspective)

I do not mean to be negative but the jury is still out on Allison but I am sure he will be great for us in the long run.

Park Red, I didn’t see Alisson do anything reckless. Sure, he took a chance or two in order to retain posssession for his team but he has the ability and confidence to get away with it. You/ we/ all Liverpool fans simply have to accept that the modern goalkeeper plays this way.

Alisson is 10 times the player Mignolet is in pretty much every aspect. It's a breath of fresh air to see a Liverpool goalkeeper who can actually kick and save a ball. You can't compare the save that Ryan made as they were completely different. Alisson can only save what's thrown at him, and so far he's done pretty damn well. You'll see how good Alisson is, I'm very sure of that. Onwards and upwards red men!

I am not referring to the chip. I think that was cool and its great that he had the confidence to pull that off.

I mean the couple of time Murray almost stole the ball from him (couldve been the rob green/ robbie keane situation.

The other time when we left the box to tackle the ball and if the player (i forget his name) had not lost slight of the ball he could have put in a decent delivery for the empty net.

I'm sure he will be ok but the other teams will have had a look at this and would try to exploit it.

{Ed001's Note - how would you have coped with Brucie? He was always doing stuff like that.}

But what else was he to do, he hoofs a ball he doesn't inspire confidence in those around he does the opposite and his be reckless. The guy is probably one few worldieswe have and not everything he does will be cool or perfect.

I think you make a fair point PakRed. I get nervous when a forward closes him down and he takes a touch to make a pass. He rarely clears it first time and so players will work him out quickly. He needs to mix it up a bit, sometimes just belt the thing first time and keep the opposition guessing. If Karius had been nearly robbed like he was, he would have been slaughtered.
That said, he commands his area pretty well and his distribution is excellent when he has the time.

while the other teams may have a look at it and try to exploit it, im sure Allison himself will need to look at the game again and learn from it (eg. in decision making, when and when not to) .

but his passing is honestly way above what i expected (and what i've seen from clips of him in Roma) .

I think u made a fair point PAkRED, but that's the way the lad plays. He will save us more points than he costs us mate.

It’s the modern day keeper, they have to add to the outfield players and he certainly does that.

Looking forward to it mate. I am sure he will. I'm quite happy with how we've dealt with corners so far as a collective unit. Can only get better.

This 1 nil was the best possible result in a way. 3 points, clean sheets but keeps the players on there toes as the performance could be better.

My favourite Alisson attribute is the way he has dealt with crosses. He either catches it or he does a massive double handed controlled punch.
No flapping, no flailing with one fist.

He’s up for every ball within reason and THAT is the breath of fresh air for me. As always it’s the simple things which go unnoticed but make a huge difference to the team.

Penalty saves require a huge slice of luck as well as skill. Positioning, bravery, judgement, reflexes and technique often get ignored but Alisson, so far, has excelled.
