      He's sh*te as well, I've seen enough of him over the last 5 years to know he's anything but decent, he's no better or worse than Karius.

      I kind of disagree with you, Mignolet is technically an ok keeper, although obviously below top class. His major issue is the same as Moreno and to an extent Lovren, concentration, they seem to always have a moment in every match where they just switch off and do something daft, but as a #2 reserve keeper he is adequate, you certainly wouldn't want to be shoving Grabara or the other youngster into the spotlight yet, that could ruin them.

      What is this thing people have with Ward, he is a completely unproven keeper and there must be some reason that he was never tried by Klopp despite us only having Mignolet and Karius as our options last season.
      I seem to remember the same demand for Bogdan to play ;-)


      I am however slightly confused why Ward would chose to be the #2 with Leicester rather than #2/3 with us. Even if Leicester sell Schmeical I very much doubt that he'd be the #1 there.

      Ward is unproven for us, but did very well every time he went out on loan. Fans of the clubs he has been loaned to rave about him. And the few games he had for us he looked good.

      Also, we've seen enough of Mignolet to know he's not great ( albeit not quite as bad as some make out), plus he wants to leave. And if Karius didn't have issues before the CL final, he does now. So Ward, to me anyway, looked the natural option as a promising #2 who already had a fair bit of (pretty successful) competitive experience.

      As for why he chose Leicester? Don't know. Maybe he was promised Leicester would give him a chance in the cup competitions. My guess is we let him know we didn't want him, or he got the impression he had a better chance of dislodging Schmeicel than Alisson plus Karius. Maybe he's sitting looking at Migs as our disgruntled #2 and thinking he should have stayed, who knows?

      Must feel like a real kick in the face for Klopp after he gave him endless number of chances AND a new contract.

      Just a complete and utter tit of a footballer.

      Would've gotten shot of Migs ahead of Karius.
      Been hanging around for so many years now, not being good enough.
      And now feels it's a good time to make stupid comments ! - suppose he doesn't have much to loose really, he's got no future here - only reason still on the bench is nobody will buy the f**ker.

      Took some stick from fans. Watched on at Karius. Seen us splash near 70 million on a keeper yet everytime I see him on camera at a game hes applauding or smiling at the teams good fortune.

      Not a bad word from him in the last few months. Credit for that

      I'd be happy too collecting 70k a week for a front row seat at our games.  Sign me up 😋

      "The goalkeeper position is a different one but Simon, I could write a book about all the good things I could say about him."

      Jürgen apparently said this recently.
      Expecting to see him against Wolves.
      Would think he'll have some saves to make too.

      He will be needed big time if the rumoured back 4 ahead of him is true. He's a good number 2 is Simon.

      I'm not sure. Most number 2 keepers in PL will be around championship level, but they are usually much younger and learning from the main keeper. Mignolet is here because a mistake to give him a 5 year contract.

      of course he'd say that. Klopp will boast him up, if Mignolet has a good game there could be bids for him in January. 15m for Mignolet then have Grabara as a number 2.

      Both goals he should do better. (But probably not capable of it)

      I've said he's a good number 2 but he wasn't tonight. Think he's gone at the end of the season.

      I still think he's a good number 2 but agree he'll be gone by the summer.

      Mignolet isn't a good number two, but that is just my opinion.
      Personally I think any random person on the street can perform to Mignolet's standard.

      I defend him to a point but be got nowhere near the second goal and that wasnt in the corner from 30 yards out. Flat footed and weight going to his left. The first goal technically was a horror show with body shape, head position and positioning in his goal.

      Be glad to see the return of Alisson.

      I agree 100% mate but he's still a good number 2.

      Having said that we've no real need for him now most likely as Allison will play every game for the rest of the season.

      Was as poor tonight in decision making as always , puts the defense under so much pressure holding on too long then giving it straight to a defender with players bearing down , mediocre gk at best , don’t want to see him play for us again simply not good enough ,

      In the stadium he seemed really slow in getting down for the second goal. It came from 30 yards away.

      Will need to watch a replay.
