Have liverpool ever looked at Augsburg keeper hitz, he has looked good in both games and I have just read he has been voted best keeper in Germany at the moment.

An average GK plays decent against us and now we should go sign him. It is with such a myopic approaches that got us to sign Bogdan and Benteke. How's that working out so far?


2.) 27 Feb 2016 14:40:52
Spot on Ohio.

It's the "Mortem Gamst Pederson theory"


3.) 27 Feb 2016 15:32:10
Has he been voted best keeper in Germany? What about Neuer?
Not saying your wrong, but hasn't Neuer been regarded worlds best?
Anyway, I assume original poster is asking if we have scouted him previously.


4.) 27 Feb 2016 15:57:03
Spot on, Ron. Bazaar, LFC didn't even know where Augsburg was on the German map until Emre Can showed it to his team mates. So how could we have scouted a player at a club many at the club couldn't find on the map?


5.) 27 Feb 2016 15:57:54
We signed Matip and he got into team of the season in the Bundesliga!


6.) 27 Feb 2016 16:07:42
OP is right, Neuer doesn't have to do a lot in the Bundesliga so sometimes doesn't get the awards.


7.) 27 Feb 2016 16:40:38
The commentator mentioned in both legs that hitz had been voted best keeper in bundesliga this season. Who casted the botes he didn't say but he certainly made a point to bring it up both games.


8.) 27 Feb 2016 17:12:19
I thought our poor finishing/ crossing made him look good in the Europa league games.
Whoever replaces Migs needs a long track record of being a good keeper IMO, not someone currently riding the crest of a wave.


9.) 28 Feb 2016 07:53:43
Fraser Forster for me Ron.
Great rapport with Southampton now having blown a shed load of money on the average players, so perhaps this time we might get one of their decent ones.

{Ed001's Note - have you watched Forster? Flaps at crosses and lets in soft shots. Another dodgy keeper being made to look good by a solid team system in front of him.}


10.) 28 Feb 2016 08:14:14
So generally looking at it, because he doesn't play for a team you have heard of, and probably never watched until these two legs, he is no good, typical we should sign big name player comment, if your playing well in any league, especially top leagues then teams will monitor players regardless of who they play for, imo he looked commanding in his box, made good saves, I'm not saying we should go and buy him on two games but if he is regarded as best in their league atm, then should we not watching?


11.) 28 Feb 2016 08:52:50
Well we probably are watching, I know 40 odd thousand who watched him the other night.

What I saw was different to you. He made 1 good reflex save from Sturridge at his near post.
All the other saves were bog standard but you will have noticed we only had 6 shots on target and scored one.

I did not see a keeper commanding his box. Mignolet commanded his box more. All the high balls he took he had zero pressure on him from our forwards and he literally only had to put his hands in the air and the ball went straight in.
Mignolet was more commanding, I remember 1 punch through a crowd of players and coming out to a strikers feet on the edge of the area.
He might be a great keeper but based on the game I was at and the other one in Germany, he was nothing to write home about and did not outshine Mignolet.


12.) 28 Feb 2016 12:05:00
Boys why don't we just say he looked good against us. Which he did. He has good reviews and a bit of hype. Then go and watch him a few times and make a decision yourself.

Then bring it back to the table. He certainly has potential but I like real leadership in my goalkeepers on top of all the abilities required. That is what we need in our next keeper.


13.) 28 Feb 2016 12:33:21
He's coming up 29 which is older than someone with potential. Frankly we should be looking at the likes of ter Stegen, Karius, Butland and Leno.


14.) 28 Feb 2016 13:01:38
What is this nonsense about scouting players who many didn't know existed and just because they had a decent game, mostly making routine saves against us, should be scouted? Is that not how we signed Bogdan for the calimity he is now known to be to point of calling back Ward from a very productive loan or Benteke because he always did well vs us without actually studying if he fits the way we play? Let it go, pls. The guy had a decent game, nothing more and No, he's not good enough for us. If he's that average at 29, then there's no way he can get better.


15.) 28 Feb 2016 13:09:06
LFC together, he didn't command anything and has no potential nor upside to improving due to his age. Our poor delivery at set pieces made him look good along with our poor finishing. There are many other gk's out there ten times better than him. I'm not even a scout and I can name a few because I actually watch other leagues and other players. The scouts need to actually go do their jobs and due diligence instead of showing laziness and signing players only because they played a good game vs us. Also, the fans need to get off this MOTD fever and keep things in perspective.


16.) 28 Feb 2016 16:22:06
I'm confused here, do we want an experienced keeper or "potential", ideally I prefer experienced, but not someone who sits on Barcelona, Chelsea's bench keeping it warm, but someone who plays regular, and plays well, by the way who are these keepers you say are good enough?


17.) 29 Feb 2016 09:37:27
The ones I would hope we avoid are Sirigu and Begovic. No thanks, no thanks at all.


18.) 29 Feb 2016 16:54:30
We should be more worried about shots at goal than a keeper if as Ron Keague says we only had six shots against Augsburg and we only had two shoots against man city that is worrying and needs the utmost attention. If you can't score goals then the pressure will be on the rest of the team and you will concede goals so there will be more pressure on the keeper so to sort out one problem we must address the other problem and very soon.


19.) 01 Mar 2016 10:30:59
Asmir Begovic. Job Done!

Do you think kolo toure will be offered a short term contract. He was excellent last night and had been playing well recently, also he is happy to sit on bench and play when needed, unlike a lot of players,

Lfc together

{Ed002's Note - It has looked like Liverpool were intending to do that - which is a surprise to me.}


1.) 19 May 2016 11:58:27
Why a surprise ed? Do you not expect others like Skrtel Sakho to leave meaning we need to retain Kolo as back up to Matip abd Lovren?

Do you still think Matip will be back up to another arrival?

{Ed002's Note - It takes up a place in a vastly bloated squad for someone as cover for a handful of games a year. May as well push out all of the youngsters..}


2.) 19 May 2016 13:11:53
After yesterday, and the whole season tbf, kolo should be a starter. His pace is still ridiculously quick.


3.) 19 May 2016 14:02:01
We got beat conceding 3 goals and you want to keep a 35yr old defender. I have been saying for a while now Defensively we are so poor. And that's down to the players and Mr Rodgers who bought them. I am with Eds on this one. Kolo played best of a bad bunch, but to keep him as cover when we have young players like Gomez Jones and Masterson doesn't make sense to me.

{Ed001's Note - we need to keep his experience. What makes no sense is to let him go.}


4.) 19 May 2016 14:52:22
Personally I'd offer him a coaching role like arteta at city. We need to be aiming for higher quality.


5.) 19 May 2016 17:29:15
He's the perfect candidate to provide cover at CB with Sakho out, and adds experience in the dressing room. He was almost the only one to stand up and be counted last night.


6.) 19 May 2016 18:01:17
He must be great to have around the place throughout the season. Unless there is a youngster who is pushing for a first team place, perhaps Gomez, give Kolo another year.

Before the beginning of last season I was watching lfc tv and it was showing 10 best games of the season before, in every game suarez did something to change the game, and we won, I said to friends then that I wasn't looking forward to the season ahead and behold I was spot on, due to signing players most of us wouldn't have heard of but the word "potential" was rammed down our throats about them, you look at chelsea , city, they spend around the same as us before seem to get 2/3 top draw players. Instead of buying 8/9 players for £80/£90m and paying around £600-£700 grand a week in wages between them, why don't we buy 2/3 world class and pay them £200 grand each in wages, you look at most prem winners they only have 3 world class players in their teams and the rest are solid 7/10 players

Lfc together

1.) 30 Aug 2015 11:25:34
Who says we don't try get those " top draw players " ? Top draw players sign for top draw clubs, of which we no longer are. That's the reality.


2.) 30 Aug 2015 12:11:05
I was thinking the same exact thing yesterday!
And apparently Rodgers doesn't like to coach "Ready made talents"


3.) 30 Aug 2015 19:24:40
Cos they will figure out that he is all talk and no action he will not command the same respect top managers do. A big time player won't listen to a coach as insecure as BR is.


 

 

15 Aug 2015 06:31:52
What I can't understand is 2 seasons ago we played some great football and came a whisker away from the title, only conceding too many goals costing us it, granted we lost suarez which would hamper us, but we bought aload of players when in fact we needed quality not quantity, then play a system that was not like the year before and we looked awful, and not play half the players we bought and the ones that did even stevie wonder could see shouldn't be playing, so why change everything last season, we got 75m for suarez, so why did we not buy a world class striker in return, and watching the stoke game all I saw was last season performance, passing sideways and backwards , no movement off the ball, no high pressing except random player every now and again, so how can we have faith in brendan when it looks like déjà vu from last season,

Lfc together

1.) 15 Aug 2015 09:09:04
Coz we thought tons of midfielders and attackers would replace Suarez goals and we are still in the same mood.


2.) 15 Aug 2015 09:37:38
Summed the situation up perfectly lfc together


3.) 15 Aug 2015 19:30:27
All good points, boys. I worry for the club as a whole because we are just a mess on the field and off it in terms of player management.

Keane Unknown, proven goal scorer, sturridge over Sandro anytime, Rooney might have won medal but he is well past his best, nowhere near as influential as coutiniho, need I go on.

Lfc together

{Ed025's Note - keane proved last year that he usurps the chuckle brothers you have at CH, sandro is not a wimp and will not spend two months out with a broken fingernail so in before bone china boy, i really like couts though but rooney would play before firmino because he scores goals...case proven..

So what you are saying is the holding midfielder might as well play left back all game then? Good, I repeat good footballers know when to utilise space going forward without compromising the team, Moreno has no positional sense whatsoever and is hopeless at defending in all areas, either play him left midfield or get shut, as for Milner at left back, would it not be better to play clynne at left back and Milner right back as he has played there from time to time.

It would disrupt the game for the first couple of months, but after a few sending offs, managers won't allow players to keep doing it and only then will you see it stop.

Instead of moaning about all our signings before ANY has played a PL game, why doesn't everybody trust in what klopp is doing, If it takes a certain amount to sign a player Liverpool want, let them pay it if we are happy too . with the players probably leaving plus who's gone already, their is a good chance all the signing we have, it will technically have cost us nothing, People wanted us to strengthen in certain positions, he has nearly done that, so if your a true LFC supporter, TRUST IN KLOPP.
