I really do hope these Casillas rumours are untrue. are looking at any goalkeepers?

Got to give Ward a chance, nothing to lose now .

If true it only proves Klopp has a blind spot when it comes to Goalkeepers. Porto are doing their best to get rid for good reason.

What about if it’s not true KloppisaKloon?

26 Oct 2017 22:32:13
I hope its not. But at Dortmund he stuck with an average GK for years. Would you like Casillas?

26 Oct 2017 22:52:38
No but I would rather not condemn the manager for a decision that he hasn’t made yet and probably isn’t even going to make.

27 Oct 2017 00:01:57
Casillas is awful. I bloody hope we aren’t after him.

I actually don't mind at all bringing in Casillas in January.

Look at Cech -- who is a similar age -- he's been very very good for Arsenal.

Casillas is not only world class, he's one of the best keepers to ever play the game. As a short to intermediate term solution to our woes at the back, I like this move. He could not only shore us up, but also provide some guidance to Ward/ Karius.

It would also allow us to send Mignolet packing, which is long overdue.

{Ed001's Note - for starters Cech has not been that good for Arsenal, he is clearly way below the level he was at and has not really made them any better than they were before he arrived. They would have been better spending the money elsewhere and sticking by Ospina.

Secondly Casillas has never been world class or even near to it. He has always been a very average keeper who had very little to do so he could get away with it. He has a terrible attitude, is a trouble maker and would be an awful signing, even for the bench.

As for getting rid of Mignolet there is nothing to stop that happening anyway.}

If we're going down this ridiculous route I'd rather have Reina back! Ward needs to be given a chance first.

27 Oct 2017 06:56:31
Actually we have 3, Bogdan has been registered so he is in the squad as well.

27 Oct 2017 08:21:07
I am not a Casillas fan at all but the guy is surely worth something considering all his accolades at Real Madrid and Spain.

{Ed001's Note - was it down to him or the rest of the team? Only the one time he was called upon to show what he could do they won nothing because he let simple shots go straight past him.}

27 Oct 2017 08:44:23
I am not condemning Jurgen Klopp smeg head, at all. It's well known Klopp stuck with weidenfeller despite him being bang average and costing Dortmund simple goals all the time. And he has stuck with Mignolet for over 2 years now.

Have to agree with ed1. Watching past el classicos recently and some of the goals Casillas concedes are woeful. He looked no better than migs, he Just had the ability to every now and then make a world class save which made him look far better than he was.

27 Oct 2017 17:10:43
Anyone who thinks Casillas is world class clearly doesn’t watch any football.

27 Oct 2017 22:22:23
Casillas WORLD CLASS? You are joking right? Bang average keeper and alway has been even in his prime at Madrid. Just WOW.

28 Oct 2017 22:32:11
A terrible buy. Yes.
Past his prime and poor for the last 6 years. Yes.
Troublemaker. Yes apparently.

But never anywhere near world class? ! that's not even harsh. Its ridiculous.

Won every single thing there was to win at club and national level. multiple times!

In uefa team of the season six years running.

In fifa team of the season five years running.

Voted worlds best goalkeeper five times.

Most clean sheets in champions league history.

Talented enough at only 16 years of age to play in the champions league for one of the biggest clubs in the world and won it outright at 18.
Can you imagine a 16 year old playing in goals for real madrid now? 16?

Made some of the greatest reflex seens at the highest level

Was outstanding, absolutely world class and one of the main reasons madrid won la liga the year under capello.

Never anywhere near world class?
Even a catalan native wouldn't agree with you.

Won everything you can win with both club and country, he's been voted best GK in the world 3 (? ) times. I am not saying he is as good as Buffon, but bang average is streching it a bit imo.

{Ed001's Note - fair point, he has not been good enough to be called bang average for a long time. I don't care what he has been voted or what he has won. John O'Shea has a list of trophies as long as your arm but he is not good enough to be bang average. As for being voted best keeper, it just shows how much of a joke the award is.}
