      Wonder if Klopp giving the job to Karius will allow him to settle and see him improve his form? He seems more at ease the last couple of games. Be interesting to see if he keeps his place in CL.

      Certainly appears more settled.
      He is only 24 and has only played 15 games for us in his career.
      I don’t think he will ever become an utterly top class keeper but there is certainly room for improvement and one that will come by being number 1 for us for the rest of the season.

      Frankly, Mr Shankly

      15 games? Jeeze - it's less than I thought. The way some were talking about him it was as if he'd played 200 odd games for us in 4 and a bit years.

      He's actually played 31 ( 16 last season, 15 this)

      I think he's been really good these last couple of games, If he keeps improving then we could be about to save a fortune on a new keeper and put those funds elsewhere

      He's quick off his line, the save he made yesterday and against son last week Mignolet would never make. His distribution is quicker and better, his decision making on punching also makes us better at the back because the defenders in front of him know what he is going to do.

      It's a big 3 months for Karius

      It's a strange sight watching a Liverpool goalkeeper making saves and commanding his area.  I could get used to it.

      Cannot believe Klopp would even consider putting that other buffoon in goal for one of the most important games of the season.

      He has improved and has more confident! He needs to keep going if he wants to be here much longer. Loris saved us points yesterday against the Saints.

      Well done from a fan of Mignolet (not much longer if he continues like yesterday.)

      15 games, 8 clean sheets, 1 defeat apparently.

      Saved us against Saints, not for the first time he's kept them out well. Improving with each game, amazing what happens when you give  a keeper a proper chance instead of sticking with someone who is clearly not good enough.

      Played a big part in the first goal too, quick release of the ball and then we go on and score straight away.

      Like someone has already posted ... Mignolet would have still been holding the ball !

      He has come on enormously and we are seeing why he plays at international level for Germany.

      Has instilled confidence in the defence ... you can see it.   

      Theres a spine there with Lorius , Virgil and Bobby.

      Just need that one midfielder to glue everyone together (I don't think it should be Keita, but it can if he plays as the hub).

      Loris Karius to start Reds' Porto clash
      Loris Karius will retain his place in Liverpool's goal for Wednesday night's Champions League fixture with FC Porto, Jürgen Klopp has confirmed.

      The ‘keeper has been given the nod to start between the sticks for the last-16, first-leg tie at the Estadio do Dragao.

      Klopp also had words of praise for Karius’ performance in Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Southampton as he confirmed the news to Liverpoolfc.com.

      Speaking on-board the team flight to Portugal, the boss said: “Loris will start.

      “For all goalkeepers it is the same, they need that [confidence]. I don’t like to talk too much about it because we are only interested in the next game, but [his performance at Southampton] was important.

      “There were a few really good saves, important saves, good decisions – really smart decisions with quick restarts and stuff like that.

      “He was involved in the game, was open and it was just a good performance from him.”

      I do like the communication now Big Virgil is in the team.
      He was torn a new one when Virgil originally came into the team,
      but I think he encourages Karius to be aggressive, which Karius is anyway.

      Love it.

      Communication is key, certainly between the defensive triangle of the goalkeeper and the two CB's. As a CB you need to know when your goalkeeper will come for it and as a goalkeeper you need to know what your CB will do in certain situations. Them finally being given a run of games together will do them the world of good. They need to develop that understanding. Van Dijk calling him to come collect the ball shows when he expects his goalkeeper to come and when he doesn't, good stuff.

      Hopefully Karius steps it up too and becomes a bit more vocal, that should come with time. A vocal goalkeeper is a huge help as a CB. I love playing in front of a vocal goalkeeper, you're always at ease and they'll constantly be telling you about the movements of the forwards etc.

      Been a fan of Karius since his last season at Mainz and I've been calling for him to start pretty much all season. Very happy Klopp finally made a final decision on the goalkeeper matter for the time being.

      One thing that does my head in, as mentioned by other posters, is the crowd at games and how they react to his every move. If you're there, support the lad, don't make him even more anxious, it just doesn't help or instill confidence at all. He's still fairly new and in my opinion he has been unfairly crucified by both the fans and the media last season and at the start of this season.

      The media also had a big role to play in it. If they don't like you, they just push this agenda and pundits are all to happy to just go along with it. You don't hear them mentioning how poor Schmeichel has been lately, or when Lloris fucks up yet again, or Cech who has been piss poor for months and very little was said about how poor Ederson was against us just because the media love having a wankfest. Yet Karius' game gets analysed into oblivion, down to bloody inches of "where he should have been". They've had it in for him ever since he arrived. Ridiculous.

      I hope he keeps improving and I'm happy to see he has found back that confidence and touch of arrogance he had about him at Mainz, every goalkeeper needs some of that.

      Funny you mention communication mate I had a chuckle to myself when Karius came out to catch a ball calling for it and Virgil cleared it in front of his nose leaving Loris with a handful of his hair instead.

      He's also very good at getting rid of the ball. :D
      Remember Everton when he constantly shouted at Karius.

      Not trying to be a debby downer...but I don't think a few decent games in a row from Karius means we eliminate interest in a bona fide #1 keeper over the summer. Not advocating we spend the rumored 90 mill release clause for Becker, but Karius has more to prove before we definitively committ to him next year.

      Think it's more to do with putting a lid on the rumor for the time being. When your current keeper is performing better, there is just no reason to unsettle him by having this 'rumor' of signing another goalkeeper in the summer float around the media.

      Come summer, we may see a different story.

      I think we've seen enough to give Karius a real chance over the rest of the season, Mignolet has had his chance and he'll be off in the summer.

      Could feasibly see Karius as no.1 if he proves himself, with Ward as the no.2.

      Don't know much about Alisson, never seen him play, but I reckon appearing to cool our interest now might work in our favour should we still want him in the summer as it looks like they're trying to wrap up a new contract with a massive release clause.
