      No it's a poor error and I expect better.

      But it's still nonsense to suggest the man in the street is just as capable goal keeper.

      Rib gonna Rib, to be fair.

      Maybe not Migs himself as he does not play the sweeper role well, but a Migs-quality keeper, from a shot-stopping perspective, is fine as the backup who'll be lucky to get a few games a season. No one is coming here to challenge Alisson for the #1 spot, so whoever the backup is has to come with the understanding that barring injury, he's only looking at domestic cup games, which is probably no more than 10 games if we make deep runs in both competitions.

      I expect Migs will want to leave in the summer and go seek a starter role somewhere else, where he should clearly find one. I imagine we'll replace him with an older goalie whose best days are behind him but still has enough left in the tank and is willing to play a backup role. Would not want to have a young kid like Grabara / Kelleher as the backup and have to depend on them if Alisson goes down with an injury.

      You're not going to get a top quality goalie to agree to come in and only play as little as 2 games in a season, so the drop from Alisson to whoever the backup is, Migs or otherwise, should be pretty obvious and expected.

      Christ, half expecting henderson to get the blame for both goals next

      Migs isn’t getting blamed for the goals, he’s getting picked up for not doing better. He is the last line of defence and although it wasn’t him that cocked up and lost us the ball in the first place, I’d expect him to have done better. Well no, I wouldn’t expect Migs to do any better actually because he’s proven time and again he’s not any good for us, it’s more what I’d have liked to have seen him try and do.
      He certainly wasn’t directly at fault for the goals but he didn’t cover himself in glory either.

      That second goal was very hard to save, bullet in the bottom corner... but the first goal where Milner messed up... I don't know why he scrunched himself up like a dodgeball player. It's very encouraging to opponents. I've not seen any other goalkeeper do that, that's why I'm thinking he may be around the quality of pub football.

      Bye Simon, I won't miss you. Worst starting keeper I've ever seen, conceded 1 in every 2 shots taken against him in his LFC career. F***ing useless, piss off.

      What an appalling statistic. Christ!

      I'd have kept Grabara and loaned out Mignolet to any club that would have him.

      I think we should have kept Danny Ward, and binned Mignolet. Ward anyhow is a back up keeper at Leicester.

      This was Liverpool's 50th clean sheet in the Premier League under Jürgen Klopp in their 128th match with the German in charge since his first in October 2015; 42% of those have come since Virgil van Dijk's league debut in January 2018 (21 in 37 games since).

      Can we have a stat on % clean sheets when he plays and when he doesn't?

      Don’t have any stat percentages to hand but his best total of clean sheets in a domestic campaign for us is 14 about 4/5 years ago...still let in 43 mind.

      In fact the least amount of goals he’s ever let in is 24, that was last year, because he played half a season.

      Miserable.

      Clean sheets is not a good goalkeeping stat. He's a goal keeper not a dry cleaners. Shot to goal ratio is more fair.

      Not good enough never was and never will be. Pathetic actually. Read on twitter this morning that there was interest for Tom Heaton is Burnley and I was delighted until I seen it was Simon Jones of the daily fail..... Both cup games we lost this season wolves and Chelsea he had two nightmares in and as long as he’s our back up goalkeeper we’ll never have a cup run again.

      We could do worse for a back-up. Hope, we will never use him apart from small cups. Alisson is back on Monday ;)

      I would never be happy to see any goal keeper play seeing how that means the best keeper in the world is out of action.

      I hear your guys frustration but apart from that one f**k up, he made at least 10 great saves over the last 2 games, kept us in both games and kept the scoreline down in both. Could have easily lost both games.

      I'd keep him as a backup knowing that Alisson will be Number 1 in the PL and CL.

      Trouble is though, aside from these games where it didn’t prove to be the case, but has been the situation plenty of times in the past - that one mistake can easily be the mistake that costs us a game.

      Wish nothing but the best of luck to this guy, wasn’t quite at the level we needed but a good servant of the club for 6 years and evidently a class act last season when he was on the bench fir the whole year.
