So we are in talks to sign Alisson. What did I tell yous that it is likely a knew GK will arrive, If it happens it happens, if it doesn't so be it.

Think the Brasilia presence at LFC might just give us the upper hand. Who knows what is going to happen :-)

I can't understand the logic in the Alisson bid. I know people have their opinions, but I've watched a fair bit of Kasper schmichael over the past few yrs, and in my opinion he has fewer bad games than any other keeper in the league barring De Gea. But, the main thing is that he seems to thrive on pressure and the big stage in exactly the type of games we want ourselves involved in. Whereas the only evidence we have of Alisson performing in big games is a nothing display against Liverpool and some pretty poor ones in Russia.

{Ed001's Note - the same Schmeichel that was rank all last season and the season before?}

Is right max, but to be honest mate when you lose one of your top three keepers in Migs (who will leave) there is a really big possibility that there will be a new one coming in. i think Alisson will sign personally. To much smoke on this one mate👍.

Must have missed his Rank games ed001 😂.

{Ed001's Note - he has had a poor couple of seasons. Attitude is stinking, hence why he suddenly stepped it up for his country.}

I believe Firmino put in a good word for us LOL.

There's probably more truth in that than you think Max.

No one bothered that Klopp pretty much lied to the current goalkeepers?! Saying they’d be fighting for 1st!

Yeah dean, like when Benitez told us Alonso was not going to be sold and the we got Aquilani!

Kasper is overrated, makes loads of mistakes and was dropped by Leicester towards the end of the season. He is a good organiser like his dad and decent shot stopper but he’s been mistake riddled for most of his career.

Dean the other keepers would be fighting for the no1 spot. It would be an up hill battle but that is what it is. If they end up being better than alisson then they would be no1. Or maybe ward has told klopp he wants out? We aren't to know. If you want to win things you need the best players you can get. If the club has the money to spend then I'm all for it. Shaqiri on the cheap may have reopened the door for this to happen while still having money left for a no10.

Dean who said klopp promised anyone anything? A couple of journos? Must be true so.

Agree AussieMARK all players should be wanting to be number 1, we have got some decent competition across a number of positions which makes for an exciting season,

Sorry Ed001. I get quite a few hits when I search for Alisson. so I have tried to RTFP. Can I ask (although i am sure others have already. sorry), what is your view on Alisson? Is he a step up from Karius/ Ward, could he be the answer? Would there be someone else you would prefer?

{Ed001's Note - you obviously haven't read much I was saying last season then! Alisson is a quality keeper with the potential to be the best in the world.}

I think if you are in the squad and NOT fighting for no. 1 in your position you ought to be elsewhere.

Deano - why would anyone be bothered what Klopp said to the players?
Players lie, managers lie. It happens all the time. Football is a massive business and at the top it is ruthless.
Players know they are in competition with their peers and are handsomely rewarded for it.
Don’t worry about them, they’ll get over it 🤝.

Actually the Eds where the ones who said it? Not some journos! I don’t think you’d be on this site if you didn’t respect their opinion.
And I understand we all want a gk, but it’s a shame to hear on yet another bit of unprofessionalism after we’ve heard so much about tapping up etc.

Many thanks Ed001. I had a feeling you had said something along those lines, but I am getting older and my memory is going. Good to hear your view, I appreciate it!

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate. I really rate him, he does have the modern keeper's obsession with a punch rather than a catch, but they all do that. His reflexes are lightning.}
