      Think his catch for a very far out ball was silly. He did it to try and prove a point and on another day he misses it and they have a free shot on goal. Yes he caught it but 99% of other keepers in the world wouldn't come out for that.

      Fair play for having the balls to do it but he's playing with fire.

      2 shot on target 2 goals conceded.

      Same for Karius in his last game.

      Not liking the shot/save ratio now?

      God bless shitty stats.


      They had 5 shots on target compared to our 3.

      First two shots, equalled two goals pretty sure.

      You know what that means.... In the Mignolet thread.

      Yeah I know some get carried away a bit like Clyne with all the shouts for TAA to replace him, only obvious now when he is out exactly what he does for the team.

      It's crazy how teams seem to find their shooting boots against us isn't it. I'm sure their shots to goals ratio is far worse against others.

      Rubbish, it was a very catchable ball, Migs may disagree though, and I actually like to see a keeper catch a ball instead of all this punching bollocks.
      I thought Ward looked very good, certainly more composed than Karius or Migs, and I'd be giving him a run of games but I'm not a German mastermind.

      I'm not believe if Clyne play instead of TAA/Gomez in our last few games then we will have any different results.

      The last few games our defence as a whole collapsed desperately. OF course as Clyne's a lot much experience so defensively he's not worse than the youngsters but he's not a lot better also. Given the impressive attacking TAA offer I always preferred him to Clyne, yes except Clyne came back and up his game a lot then it's another matter.

      Oh it's Danny Ward player thread ;D, I'm with many on here would like to see Ward have a run of games, he's very promising really and best of our three gks.

      I agree, what can it hurt, we all know that Migs is sh*t and I'm not so sure about Karius either but the one player who has not been given a chance is Ward so lets see him for a few games and then make a decision on him, he really can't be that much worse than Migs can he? Mind you I said that about Bogdan as well!!!

      If he is as bad as Migs and Karius then we need to f**k all 3 of them off asap and spend big money on finally getting a decent goalie with a good understudy.

      I would’ve agreed until Tue but I thought Karius gave the best all round keeping performance I’ve seen for us since Pepe’s heyday.......

      I’d give him another go.

      We know Klopp is frustrated with the GK situation. So why not let Ward have a go with his old club? He practiced against them and knows them better our other two doormen. How much worse could he be?

      I can only surmise that either Ward is worse than Karius or Migs, which surely just cannot be true, or Klopp for some reason really doesn't like Ward, same as he didn't like Sakho, perhaps Ward doesn't kiss Klopp's arse enough or shies away from hugs.

      Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp set to give Danny Ward opportunity to be first-choice goalkeeper

      Jürgen Klopp is ready to give Danny Ward an opportunity to prove he can become Liverpool's first-choice goalkeeper.

      Klopp has been hugely impressed with Ward since the squad reconvened for pre-season training at the start of the month.

      And with Loris Karius continuing to struggle in the wake of his Champions League final nightmare, Ward is now poised to be given an extended chance during pre-season.

      Reds boss Klopp has been impressed with the attitude of the 25-year-old Wales international, who is understood to have raised his levels at Melwood in recent weeks.

      Now Ward could have forced his way into the box seat between the sticks as the countdown continues to the start of the Premier League season.

      Karius has been under intense scrutiny since his two errors during the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in May, with it later emerging he had suffered concussion during the game.

      The German appeared nervous during Liverpool's opening pre-season friendly at Chester City last weekend, and was responsible for a poor error in conceding a goal in the 3-2 win at Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday.

      By comparison, Ward was a steady influence during his 45-minute appearances in both games, and is now poised to be given increased game time over the coming weeks.

      Liverpool continue their preparations at Bury on Saturday before a trip to Blackburn Rovers the following Thursday.

      The Reds then fly out for their tour of the United States where they will face Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City and Manchester United.

      With Simon Mignolet unavailable due to World Cup commitments with Belgium, Ward and Karius are the only two senior goalkeepers expected to travel.

      Ward made just one appearance for Liverpool last season having spent the previous campaign on loan at Huddersfield Town, who he helped guide to promotion to the Premier League.

      Klopp is still considering his goalkeeping options with Mignolet touted for a departure before the transfer window closes next month.

      Good for Ward if he gets a chance. To go from playing everyday at Huddersfield to doing nothing all year as the 3rd choice keeper must have really sucked for him, but do not recall him complaining about it. I'd be OK if he and Karius battle it out for starter / backup and Migs is sold.

      Why do we keeping persisting with trying out every keeper at the club. I thought this summer was meant to be a bit of a blockbuster one where we really stepped up to the next level? None of our keepers are at the required standard so why aren’t we getting a new one in before it’s too late.

      Ward looks better than Karius to me. Although, my opinion of Karius being what it is, I could say that about a lot of goalies.

      The truth is that we haven't seen enough of Ward for us to make any real judgement on him. I thought he should have been given more games last season, and if he had maybe we could be making him our number 1 by now with a bit of confidence. As it is, we will be taking a punt with a guy who is untested for us, and who Jürgen clearly rated below Karius until now.

      It'd be another gamble to suddenly rely on him as our number 1. I'd like to see us buy another keeper to replace Mig and/or Karius, and try out Ward in the domestic cups. However he did look pretty good on the few glimpses I've had of him so he could pay off as our number 1, but it just has a distinct feel of us trying to cut corners and hope for the best in the GK position, again.

      Taken them to the cleaners if they end up keeping Schmeichel. 12.5M with a 20% future sell on clause for a completely unproven player at this level, mid 20s and as it stands is going to be back up keeper at Leicester unless things change with Schmeichel. Great deal for us.
