So I hear that Aussie GK Matt Ryan is being looked at.
He was voted GK of the year in Belgium and has been doing pretty good at the Asia cup so far (albeit against mediocre opposition).
Wouldn't cost all that much I would think and would certainly mean the end to the (terrible) reign of Mignolet


1.) 15 Jan 2015 04:51:01
He has great distribution, commands the area and is a decent shot stopper! He had a poor World Cup but is very young. He would be a gem and cheap to buy! But I very much doubt it would happen.

2.) 15 Jan 2015 05:19:32
He's played two seasons in Belgium and won 'keeper of the year both seasons. Great young player, still only 22. Would fit with out play style too as he is excellent with his feet.

3.) 15 Jan 2015 06:32:49
He is a good keeper but a little on the small side hence why he left the Central Coast for Belgium and not a top league

4.) 15 Jan 2015 07:28:12
Would love him as 1 of 2 keepers at the club.

5.) 15 Jan 2015 07:45:55

His height is not the reason he left CCM. He left to develop his game in a better league and play first team football. Belgium is a good development league and he was promised first team football. It would be unrealistic to think that a 20 year old Australian keeper would go straight from the A-League to EPL, La Liga or Bundesliga. Look what happened to Mitch Langerak - top keeper but has sat on the Dortmund bench for 4-5 years.

6.) The (terrible) reign of Mignolet will be exactly the same as the (terrible) reign of anyone else unless the coaching is changed.

We have a goalkeeping coach who actively makes keepers worse the longer he trains them. Change that before we start signing new GKs.

Any inclination Achterberg will be going as part of the 'review' eds?

{Ed001's Note - all the coaching staff are under review.}

7.) Let's hope the review is concluded quickly then and we get a decent go coach and force Rogers to employ a defensive coach as well (if he's still with us that is)

8.) 15 Jan 2015 10:03:30
he is 5.11 which is short for a keeper. There are a couple of other decent keepers of that size such as Casillas for example so shouldn't write him off.

9.) 15 Jan 2015 17:16:18
Casillas isn't that great when pressured by big players and is poor on crosses, same as Barthez and any other sub 6ft keeper you can think of.

Matthews is too short to be any good in the premier league.

Can you imagine the fun that teams like Chelsea, Stoke, Palace and WBA would have with him?

Poor scouting again if true.

10.) 15 Jan 2015 22:28:57
Every, and I mean EVERY keeper has their weaknesses. Casillas may be poor on crosses; but over the last 10 years or so, he is simply the best keeper I've seen since Oliver Kahn(who also had weaknesses, though more ego related).
5' 11" is fine if a keeper knows what he's doing.

11.) 16 Jan 2015 04:25:56
He's 5ft 11, but he can jump and raised his arms above his head, being slightly smaller will make him more agile and quicker of the mark, the type we need for a sweeper keeper who is good with feet! Seems a good choice imo, but like any signing, (if he signs, that is) only time will tell.

12.) 16 Jan 2015 17:39:14
We have two keepers who are poor at dealing with crosses, do we need a third? Too short to be a success here because of the physical nature of the league. He doesn't look exceptional enough to make up for his physical shortcomings(no pun intended), again stand by my remark about poor scouting, if true.

13.) 16 Jan 2015 22:39:21
Ray clemence was only 6ft, not that much different to 5'11, barthez and casillas were similar, we shouldn't judge until we have seen them play in a lfc shirt, isn't there a famous quote about judging something by size? Lol

14.) 17 Jan 2015 10:40:32
Barthez was shocking in the premier league when teams worked out that he couldn't deal with the physical stuff, don't you remember? Cassilas isn't a great keeper, it's fair to say he hasbeen lucky that he's been in teams that dominate possession and doesn't have a lot to do beyond the odd save here and there, remember the drubbing at Anfield we gave them, he looked like he couldn't deal with much beyond shots straight at him.

15.) 18 Jan 2015 10:38:15
Casillas isn't great?are you for real?he was voted into the UEFA team of the year 6 times!You really are clueless, he might not be a great keeper now but he definitely was.

Rumours flying around that we have agreed terms with Saul Niguez just need to agree fee of around 20mill Euros.
Would be a massive coup if it turns out to be true - but I'll wait to see the shirt on his back before applauding!


1.) Is he good enough NOW to go straight into our first choice starting line up and make us more competitive? If not he's not who we need, we've got enough players for the future.

2.) 20 million Euros for Saul Niguez? For that kind of money I would hope we look elsewhere.

Not worth that kind of money.

3.) I rate him as ok, but not 20 mil! maybe take a stab at 8-10 mil. But 20? no, I'd rather buy Shaquiri with that type of money.



21 Jan 2014 08:31:10
Man Utd looking to pay 37mill for Mata. IMO worth every cent and a player we really should be chumping up the change for as a creative midfielder.
That and not letting those buggers get out of the crap they're in.


1.) 21 Jan 2014 10:43:47
Great player, and would be perfect If played at No.10. But hows possible When Rooney / Kagawa is occupied over there?

He has some pretty impressive ball skills - more like a midfielder than a CB and gets up the pitch quickly.
He is defensively strong and good in the air as well as tackling.
Is he worth 100m? Well no, I don't think any defender is - but at 19 years old he has longevity on his side and if VVD is 70m pounds then 100m euros ain't that bad!
Mind you we won't get 100m for all 3 current CB's so its a $$$ outlay.

I would prefer him over Migs.
Much better ball deployment and organises the defence much better.
I guess the hatchet was too far buried to come back from!
Now. we need a great (not just good) number one

Mate there is only one place to be to watch a liverpool game and that is at Cheers bar on George St. Depending on time of the game though you might have to get there before the lockout.
Full of reds and an experience on its own :)
Might see you there

Played three FA cup games and only losing one with our shaky defence last year I think he deserves a crack to some more game time to be honest! And not just because he is an Aussie but also because I do not trust that Migs is anywhere near his best nor is his best anywhere near good enough at the moment for what we need. I would of preferred to hold onto Reina but he burnt his bridge.

I must of been watching a different game. 100%?
Not likely.
His distribution is a real worry especially when he goes long or wide.
No problem when passing to his backs which at 20 feet at the most anyone can do.
Im still not thrilled about him being our number one
