When was the last time we produced a decent keeper from our own academy?


1.) 11 Jun 2018 17:42:00
I'm 47, been a supporter since I was 8, don't think I can think of one.

2.) 11 Jun 2018 17:51:05
Been a while since a good home town goalkeeper anyway!

3.) 11 Jun 2018 17:51:12

4.) 11 Jun 2018 17:58:03
You could say the same about the majority of premier league teams.

5.) 11 Jun 2018 18:00:08
I can remember back as far as Clemence and can't remember any home grown keepers. There was lots of potential but none ever came through the ranks.

6.) 11 Jun 2018 18:00:31
was Gulasci from the academy? If he was then he’s become a competent keeper for a decent bundesliga side.

7.) 11 Jun 2018 18:02:04
I’m 46, supporting since a similar time and I agree with Johnny.

So we ether go half hearted and buy Butland level or go all out for a top keeper and spend £80m.

8.) 11 Jun 2018 18:06:41
Fair point. Although that Irish lad caomhin Kelleher highly regarded. Last keeper from ressies to get a lookin. a tough one mate. Tony warner? A danish keeper in early 90's?

9.) 11 Jun 2018 18:13:09
Tommy Lawrence. the first sweeper Keeper.

10.) 11 Jun 2018 18:36:51
Tommy Lawrence. Loved the guy. He was known as the 'Flying Pig'. Big lad in all senses of the phrase. He was in goal in my first ever Liverpool match attendance in 1962-3 season.

11.) 11 Jun 2018 19:34:42
I remember thinking Anthony warner was going to b a good keeper but sadly never happened.

12.) 11 Jun 2018 19:34:55
Grabara from the u23's is very good! should be made 3rd choice keeper and ay any dead rubber games or be sent out on loan for the season.

13.) 11 Jun 2018 19:44:19
David James was good.

14.) 11 Jun 2018 20:16:13
David James was a clown and was bought from Watford to replace Grobelaar. He was lauded as the next big thing in England.

15.) 11 Jun 2018 20:45:09
Bob bolder was the last homegrown keeper. Him and Bruce grobelaar.

{Ed002's Note - Grobbelaar was hardly HG.}

16.) 11 Jun 2018 21:41:02
Didn’t David James once injure this thumb from playing the PlayStation?

17.) 11 Jun 2018 22:06:51
In fairness, David James was considered the best England goalkeeper for a long time and won over 50 caps. Shows how bad the keepers are in England overall.
Last decent keeper in England was David Seaman in my opinion.

18.) 11 Jun 2018 23:15:05
Stephan Henchoz was good in the fa cup final.

19.) 12 Jun 2018 00:01:19
Bob Boulder came from Sheffield Wed if I can remember right but never got a game for us back in the 80s. He was suppose to be Grobbelars understudy.

20.) 12 Jun 2018 12:11:35
David James cost Liverpool the title more than once, he was terrible, great shot stopper but awful decision maker.

21.) 12 Jun 2018 13:19:29
David James never injured himself playing his PlayStation, he blamed it for destroying his concentration in matches. He maybe had a point but he must have kept playing it anyway.

22.) 13 Jun 2018 01:53:32
Bring Tony warner back.

Watching citeh right now, how good is David Silva?



1.) 19 Aug 2018 14:51:36
Not quite Liverpool related, but fair enough. Silva is a genius, but the greatest of all time? At what? Maybe Manchester City’s greatest ever player, but that’s it.

2.) 19 Aug 2018 15:07:08
One of the greatest premier league footballers!

3.) 19 Aug 2018 15:18:31
Seeing as there is a man city thread, can anyone shed light on Sane? I thought he would be a mainstay in the side with him not going to the world cup? Or is it just pep switching his options. Just seems weird he hasn't started either game.

4.) 19 Aug 2018 15:43:14
My word City are breathtaking. Even when up by 3 or 4 goals they are relentless going forward. They just don't seem to take their foot off the gas.

Not many teams can beat them. We have the energy and pace to press and counterattack them but who else can? United beat them by defending deep and nicking goals off set pieces/ crosses. Hard to see how and where else they'll drop points this season.

I'm still confident in our squad and believe we can give it a good go.

5.) 19 Aug 2018 19:39:33
Great player, not in the top 20 greatest ever players though.

6.) 19 Aug 2018 20:59:39
Ron, not even in the top 30. Great little player tho, no question.



08 Aug 2018 03:12:54
what a performance by big shaq.
yes big shaq.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 06:00:30
When he comes into the central areas he is unbelievable. When he's on the pitch I'm thinking more midfield than out wide at the minute. Go on big Shaq.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 07:19:29
I'm loving the love for Shaq, I'm not sure we've had a more unpopular signing in decades but he's turned people round even before the season starts!



03 Aug 2018 16:54:55
I hope there is a buyback clause when Ings leaves. Really like him as a player.


1.) 03 Aug 2018 22:49:13
How often is he on a football field though? Injury prone and a waste of time.



29 Jul 2018 20:27:12
HBD ED001.


{Ed001's Note - cheers ninja - trust you to stealth your birthday wishes!}



28 Jul 2018 23:31:26
I hope sturridge stays fit, not impressed by solanke.

Shaqiri looking good.


1.) 28 Jul 2018 23:51:19
Your right about Shaqiri great goal too.

2.) 28 Jul 2018 23:56:34
Is it just me or does Sturridge have a habit of scoring once in a game the switches off because he thinks he’s done his bit. Rarely scores more than and if he scores early you then have 10 men on the pitch.

3.) 28 Jul 2018 23:58:25
Lazy 😉.

4.) 28 Jul 2018 23:59:11
Yep Sturridge looks sharp. Let’s hope he stays available. Solanke dropping down the pecking order. Shaquiri looked useful. Nice to see him receiving the ball to feet, turning and looking up for the pass.

5.) 29 Jul 2018 00:01:35
I am impressed by Solanke. Plays with the maturity of a much older player.

Sturridge again shows why we all hope he can stay fit.

Shaqiri, take a bow. What a debut. Against kids, fair enough, but looked the best player on the park. I hope he has the right attitude in his lfc career because his ability is unquestionable.

I don't know why we keep doubting Klopp and his signings. Robbo was constantly moaned about last summer and now he looks like one of the most assured lbs out there. I think shaqiri is going to look a real shrewd piece of business this season.

6.) 29 Jul 2018 00:14:02
Great goal by Shaqiri, he played better in that 45mins than the whole of last season for stoke, Let hope it a sign of the times.

7.) 29 Jul 2018 00:16:26
I know it’s only one game but Shaqiri doesn’t look like he’s here to play back up. That no 10 role suits him well and the last 20 minutes everything good we did involved him. As I said only one game but the signs are promising. I’m thinking the plan was stick with Karius and buy Fekir. Fekir deal was too high risk so we got Allisson and the cheaper option with Shaqiri. Could be a blessing in disguise.

8.) 29 Jul 2018 01:04:31
Studge scored quicker than Salah! But he did seem to switch off a bit afterwards, and I think he sulked after losing out on taking the penalty too lol

Shaqiri was sensational, he was literally everywhere to receive the ball, left, right, deeper, or as a striker. Before he scored his goal I was going to post about that and then he went and scored a beaut to top it all off! How he is so agile, fast and light footed considering his bulk is amazing.
If he can start pressing more Klopp will have a serious dilemma on how to start him in games xD.

9.) 29 Jul 2018 01:55:37
Has shaqiri ever had a proper crack at the top.

Basel, dominated.
Bayern to young and they where just to good, after a year they signed gotze for big money and just pushed him aside
Inter. Sinking ship.

Sometimes talent brings talent out. There about 1 player that could go to a stoke team and win a ballon and it's Ronaldo.

If he can't crack it here then he never will. Best man manager in world football, best club in the universe, best fans in the multi verse and the best anthem in the ran out of verses 🤣

He has that number 10 position to make his own. Its all there for him.

He was cracking tonight.

Now little comparison in regards to work rate in that position.

I've watch griezmann a lot as I love the guy. Now he works hard but I've never seen a player look so bad and be so good in the flick of a switch like him. Sometimes, I mean whole games he just does nothing, nada, zip but klopp wanted him for his quality.

Now I have a little theory that he doesn't want the number 10 to press as much as the rest and to also account for the amount of times big bobby goes missing up too because he's working to damn hard. Sometimes where on a break because he's cleared the ball from our box. He's a phenom but it does leave us 1 short. I think the idea is the number 10 in our system is to remain further forward, not track back as much and to work with bobby so one goes the other stays, like a tandem.

Obviously work hard and make good runs etc but not for both to go bombing back etc.

10.) 29 Jul 2018 10:01:23
I remember when number 10's were support strikers, not attacking midfielders. I don't know who the first modern number 10 was, but he's got a lot to answer for.

11.) 29 Jul 2018 12:16:35
Angy Bardzo, you described Roberto Mancini, Pele, King Kenny and Roberto Mancini perfectly as the no. 10's who were support strikers.

Eamonsf, yes you are correct i had no clue about him before I saw him in the world cup.
Also, his wc performances were crap for a RB, somehow he and france survived the belgian onslaught.

Hence, the analysis that he is overrated based on what I saw in wc.
