      Do we want a new keeper if he carries on playing well ? I am 50/50 on it, still not sure.

      Well, we have to replace Migs though(finally). Might as well do it with quality!

      I think if a better keeper is available, I would buy him. I would keep Karius as a back-up but he is improving that's for sure.

      2 brilliant saves to keep them at bay. He's definitely getting better.

      Glad I don’t have to make that decision. If he keeps carrying on like this he’s probably good enough, but if there’s a chance to upgrade, probably need to do it.

      He is decent and no more.

      Anyone that thinks we don't need a top quality keeper this summer is fooling themselves.

      That's gotta be a step up from what we have been subjected to formerly.

      I want two players coughing for every position. It's important that no player feels too safe and becomes lax.

      Whether we sign another keeper or not does nothing to discredit the play of this young man since getting the top spot. I really do enjoy the way he has handled his opportunity and run with it. It’s beginning to look like a trend with us (Robbo, Milner, etc.)

      We would have had a few more points that's for sure. I only say a few though think he's a long way of still from being a keeper that gets you 10+.

      Indeed.

      It should have been that way but for whatever reason Jürgen didn't see it that way.

      It's a strange one as anyone who watches football could see Mignolet was never going to get any better and it would be interesting to know the managers thinking behind how he approached it.

      Another game another clean sheet.

      With the addition of a fantastic save.

      Improving all the time.

      How good was it to see a keeper pulling out vital saves at vital times of the game? Agree with Scotia - in that type of game with such few chances that save saw us to the 3 points. Add his world class save against Arnautovich last week and you realise he's had as big a role to play as anyone else in that eleven as of late.

      Can anyone remember the last time we had a Keeper that saved us points, rather than costing them?

      Brilliant save and another clean sheet.  A dozen or so games to make the NO.1 position his own and at the moment since claiming it he has grabbed the opportunity with both hands and is not giving anyone a chance to remove him.    So far so brilliant.

      I think it could have ruined him. It was a panicky back line, prone to individual errors with no leader to boot.

      Tell you what, if Karius keeps up this form for the rest of the season then he will be certainly have left Jürgen with a decision to make on if we look for another keeper this summer.

      Although saying that, with Mignolet our the door, we will need to buy another keeper regardless, question is if they will be for a number 1 or 2.

      He waited for Karius to have his mind in the right state of mind that can make him succeed. I wasn't a fan of Karius but he is winning me save after save.

      He needs to continue to improve to be able to say that we do not need a new keeper over the Summer. He's on the right track.

      That save, just before half time probably saved us two dropped points yesterday.

      If they had made it 1-1 just before half time there is no guarantee we would have come out the stronger in the second half.  They had held out for 40 minutes and our second was probably the result of them being forced to be more ambitious.

      Yesterday was his 15th clean sheet in his 34 appearances for us.
