      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?

      In other words, shut up and get on with what you are paid to do instead of bitching and moaning to the press...again.

      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.

      This X 100,then again he is obviously equally as adep at keeping his trap shut as he is at goalkeeping.

      Keep your stupid mouth shut about the club until you are no longer employed here.
