      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.

      I 100% agree with this, a good team player, never moaned about being bumped down the list.

      Wish him all the best for onwards career

      Yeah he didn’t throw his toys out the pram or went talking to the press  he just kept his head down and got on with it regardless of playing no games all season,wish him all the very best.
      As far as a replacement goes we need a good quality back up keeper that’s a few levels up from migs

      how about that keeper who played a few games for us in preseason, he looked ok didn't he? or is it time we promoted one of the youngsters?

      For a limited keeper he has somehow managed to eek out a great career in the EPL.

      Good luck to him.

      Don't want to be harsh but glad he's gone.  Simply wasn't good enough for us and being honest he did cost us league places during his time as number 1.

      All the best to him in his future career.

      Good luck to him. Nowhere near as bad as some of the expert goalkeeping coaches on here would have you believe. Probably short of top class. Didn't cost us the league in 13-14 like some suggest. All the best migs.

      the defense cost us the league in 13-14 and he was part of it.

      Good luck to Migs in the future. Not enough quality to be a #1 for a title-contending team like Liverpool, but definitely not the sh*t house keeper the former hall-of-fame-worthy goalies on this board would have you believe. Took his demotion like a total pro and never caused any issues. Now he gets to go and have regular playing time and leave with a European champion medal.

      Certainly not the worst keeper we've ever had but that in itself is depressing as hell.

      Yep. Took more flak than he deserved. Not a great keeper, but a decent back up to Alisson (and definitely did not cost us in 13-14). Good luck to him at Bruges.

      People saying he never moaned and kept his head down have short memories! In the season he was replaced by Karius, he done nothing but moan and give interviews about how he needs to consider his future and was seemingly questioning the decision to drop him. All in the run up to what turned out to be a boss CL campaign.

      Just because he didn’t moan last season doesn’t take away the fact he was moaning prior to that. Dread to think how many goals, points and games he’s cost us during his time with us so I’m glad he’s gone and we never have to see him in our kit again. He was a coward in goal and was out of his depth.

      Good to get rid of him and Moreno.

      He treated the club and it’s fans with nothing but respect so why can’t we as fans do the same , since when did we start putting the knives into players when the leave just because they made mistakes on the pitch

      Always expected the fans to act better

      At least Mignolet can

      A coward in goal.

      Like I said, short memories. It’s nothing to do with sticking the knife in, look it up and you can easily find the interviews he was giving about considering his future, saying that Klopp’s dealing with the keepers isn’t healthy etc etc.

      Don’t start being all defensive of him now and trying to take some moral high ground when I have no doubts you all have slated him plenty of times.


      Klopp addressing the moaning by Mignolet, reminding him that he’s well paid and shouldn’t be going to the papers complaining. No doubt a lighter version of a behind closed doors bollocking -

      A pro complains when another keeper takes his place and also has mistakes - what’s problem ? And coward in goal ?! Wow that’s poor , just because he made mistakes or isn’t at the top level of keepers.

      There is a difference between people being critical when someone makes mistakes but last season he was crucial in helping Alisson settle and spent a whole season just sat on the bench - did he have a moan at one stage , I have no doubt he did just like any other player who sat on the bench.

      Make a mistake in a game and he’d become a nervous wreck, he didn’t have the bottle.

      Don’t try and spin it as that, if it was just that then do you think Klopp would be pulling him up and reminding him to be professional? Of course not. Publicly questioning the managers selection isn’t a good thing to be doing.

      It’s comical, I have no doubts you’ve completely slated him and wanted him gone just as much as anyone else, now people are trying to pretend it never happened and he was a model professional. It’s laughable, especially by saying he was vital to Alisson settling, that’s complete bollocks, Alisson is a world class keeper and has fellow Brazilians at the club and Moreno who was also very close with the South American’s, he’d have settled just fine with or without Mignolet there.

      Try and take a moral, YNWA stance all you want but you know you’ve laid into him just as much as everyone else.

      Anyway, I’ve wasted enough time discussing Mignolet over the years, I’m done and we will just have to agree to disagree before we go in circles.

      Bollocks he was sh*te!! Season 2013/2014 was his best season for us, all downhill from there on in.

      Had this happened around the back end of 2015 or 2016 you arse kissing hypocritical bas**rds would have been having a party glad we got rid.

      Literally a toss up between him and James as to who has the stupidest grin after they've fu**ed up and conceded a goal.

      Yeh too right.  He made a fuss.  He was moaning when Karius came and when Klopp was rotating the two saying there should be a clear no.1 or something on them lines, it back fired on him and Karius became no.1.  Then like you say he was complaining when Karius was sent on loan.  In his head he thought he was one of the top Goalies in the league.  I mean he had spat with Courtois when he was Athletico over the international position.  Last season he had to completely changes things and try from another angle.   All the best he didn't go too over the top.  But he wasn't a model professional throughout.   All the best but he was not good enough.

      I do like it when people who have probably never got further than sunday kickabout starts using the word coward around.  Whatever you thought of him as a keeper calling him a coward is pretty pathetic and way over the top.

      Wait, is this the Karius thread?

      Think that's part of the problem. Karius was idolised so when it became abundantly obvious that Mignolet was the better keeper, those in the Karius club had to keep spouting more nonsense about Mignolet being a coward, never coming off his line, couldn't pass, couldn't save, etc. etc.

      He was right to be annoyed that Karius took his spot, because Karius was not better than Mignolet for a single day. Not even a training session. Klopp had his favourites, and Mignolet was not one. With Alisson, he took it perfectly well.

      Meanwhile, Adrian is already talking about taking Alisson's spot.. so let's see how this goes.  :D
