      £70 million for a goalkeeper with "potential" these days.

      Sheesh.

      I agree, that is batshit crazy, Alisson has at least demonstrated his ability at the highest level.

      Yes it is. Good player. Not had best of time at real but a good player none the less. At Inter he looked the real deal.

      Not sure myself, he could be decent enough but no better than the likes of Barkley IMO. Just another sideways signing. Can’t believe they’ve now been reduced to loan signings. This deal literally works only in Madrid’s favour; he plays bad and it could hamper the Chavs, plays well and Madrid get a fortune for him next year/keep him and get benefit of him.
      Their midfield is a mess; Drinkwater, Barkley, Cesc, Bakayoko and now this guy. Jorginho hasn’t made the best of first impressions and seems as if it’s going to be a 1 man Kante midfield again.

      Looks like Courtois sitting out for a move to Madrid forced Chelsea's hand to get a keeper asap. Holy crap.

      Alisson is coming off 1 good (full) season in his career. He has not proven any more than Kepa who played 30 games from Bilbao last season. Difference is with the deadline being less than 2 days away and having to get a goalie, Chelsea needed the path of least resistance and that was a goalie with a release clause where you just cut a check.

      Wow, you really don't like Alisson do you, I bet you can't wait for his first mistake so that you can start demanding Karius be reinstated.
      Alisson is clearly a more established keeper than Kepa at club and international level.

      Why are you so obsessed with Karius? i haven't mentioned him but you keep bringing him up. And is it not a fact that Alisson is coming off his first full, good season at Roma? The year before he had 10 games and in total played 59 games over his 2yrs in Roma across all competitions while Kepa had 53 starts for Bilbao the past 2 seasons. The reality is they are equally proven (ie. neither is fully proven) but you are a bit too sensitive about Alisson.

      Alisson is the Brazilian No 1.
      Keeping City's No 1 out of the National Team.

      Kepa is blocked my the best goalie in the world, as would Alisson if De Gea was Brazilian.

      Has nothing to do with being blocked by De Gea. Kepa is 23/24 and has made 1 appearance, not even playing friendlies. His first call up came because Pepe Reina was injured.
      He isn’t in the potential bracket anymore, near on mid twenties isn’t potential, and for that money he has to already be performing at a top level. 6/7 clean sheets last season in a team that’s relatively defensive and relatively strong. He’s bounced around a few different clubs, to the lower division within the last couple years and is being vastly overrated by people that probably hadn’t even heard of him a few days ago. Oh, and his kicking is piss poor.

      He’s not close to playing for Spain because he does stuff like this;

      I agree, I think he is a huge downgrade from Courtois, Chelsea are significantly weakened by this

      That's stating the obvious. Courtois is in an elite bracket with De Gea, Oblak and Neuer which obviously Kepa is not in.

      LFCReds logic:

      A goalie from another team makes a mistake: He is not very good
      Alisson joins Liverpool: We need to remember all goalies make mistakes

      Bilbao finishing 16th out of 20 does not make them strong and at age 23 (won't turn 24 for another 7mths) has basically the same amount of starts (53) in a top league as Alisson does (59) at age 25. Alisson is not "proven at all levels" any more or any less than Kepa is, and both come with considerable amount of risk. Alisson giving up 3 goals on what, 7 shots? in the world cup is not saying much.

      I am not saying Kepa is worse, equal or better than Alisson, but people get a little butt hurt when someone is not calling Alisson world class.

      Pochettino must be wishing he did not sign that 5yr extension just a few months ago.

      What’s it got to do with Alisson and people apparently getting “butt hurt”? I’m commenting on Kepa, didn’t even mention our keepers... I know you are still upset over the love of your life Karius not being number 1 now and being replaced by Alisson but you have to let sh*t go and realise not every talk about a keeper goes back to him.

      I don't get people's obsession with Karius. When have i mentioned him in this discussion that he keeps getting brought up? and yes, Alisson is relevant because my original comment was in response to someone (Heimdal?) saying that Kepa's fee is "batshit crazy" while "at least Alisson had demonstrated his ability at the highest level", when in reality they both have played the same amount of games in a top league prior to their respective transfer and while Alisson did play in the world cup it's not like he did a whole lot in it either.

      Oblak Elite and Alisson isn't? You can't say anything good about Alisson. You only have 500 posts, you probably are Karius, Mignolet or Bogdan. Or maybe KarMigBog. Like ManBearPig from Southpark, but with bad goalkeepers.

      Does not being a top 5 goalie in the world mean Alisson is not good?  ???
