Adrian possibly out at the weekend with a swollen ankle, possibility of Lonergan or Kelleher playing.

Agree1 Disagree0

Fair play to Adrian. Thrown in to the lions den straight away and he did okay.

Whos better guys


Bit of fun.

{Ed025's Note - thats like asking how would you like to die..shot, poisoned or ran over robbie..

16 Aug 2019 11:59:05
Ed025 bet you wish they shot Adrian a few years ago when he slotted that pen :P.

{Ed025's Note - he took it quite well i thought HRP..

16 Aug 2019 12:27:16
25 - do the last 24 years feel like you have been shot poisoned or run over? :p.

{Ed025's Note - poisoned a little bit it the same for you not having won the league for 30 years mate?..

16 Aug 2019 12:28:44
Adrian is clearly miles better. He had a 80% save rate on Wednesday not including penalties, saving 4 from 5 shots on target.

If Mignolet or Karius faced 5 shots on target from open play, they conceded at least 2 or 3.

16 Aug 2019 12:32:17
And how manu years has it been since you won it ed? was it so old that even time machines won't be able to reach it? 😂.

{Ed025's Note - its even longer for us liverbird but we dont profess to be one of the biggest clubs in the world mate, and with your supporters being so up themselves it must really hurt i imagine.. :)

16 Aug 2019 12:32:50
If Adrian isn't able to play then I would like to see kelleher play over lonergan, depending on how he's recovered of course.

16 Aug 2019 12:34:55
Well with Karius being the worst goalkeeper I've ever seen in my life, Who bought to REPLACE Migs, I'd have to go with Adrian by a mile.

16 Aug 2019 12:59:24
Karius the worst goalie you've ever seen? That's up there with the worst post I have ever read TBH. What happened to the second name on the list of the OP?

{Ed025's Note - hes right ugbes, hes worse than migs for me mate..

16 Aug 2019 13:05:26
Karius is not the worst keeper ever. He helped get us to the ucl final remember. He is over confident and his ability doesn't match that confidence. Better than migs by miles for me. And they love him in turkey.

Yes Adrian is top of my list

I was surprised actually how well he played. Wasnt amazing but a great save for the penalty. I don't think he gave away a pen either.

16 Aug 2019 13:08:38
Well, NOW it appears he was injured by a pitch invader at the final and probably will not be playing tomorrow. Let's hope AL does well in his absence.

16 Aug 2019 13:47:07
Answer to the question, for me Karius. People forget he got us to the CL final, made mistakes then suddenly he didn't matter like he was nothing? Suddenly he was turd? Nah, he got disowned by fans who should've stood by him. No player can be 100% every game. I'm glad we replaced him don't get me wrong but the hassle he got after that final was wrong.

16 Aug 2019 14:15:10
Always liked Adrian at west ham. probably seen more of him than we did karius. i was surprised when they got joe hart in to take over. i don't think there is much between adrian and fabianski, and he's better than what i saw of migs. maybe karius had more long term potential.

16 Aug 2019 15:59:20
Good answer swishcleaner. I like your opinion too salah.

16 Aug 2019 18:22:47
If you think Karius is the worst GK you've ever seen then that just shows how much football you actually watch. How many "worst GK's you have ever seen" help a team make it to a CL final? Or Save a penalty in a high pressure game vs Spurs to keep our top 4 dreams alive (yeah, people hate him so much they forgot that THAT actually happened)? Keep a clean sheet at home to high flying City in the CL Quarters (Again, that happened)?

If Migs was better then why did Klopp replace him with the "worst GK I have ever seen"? Migs was crap hence, he got binned and our defence improved with him (and VVD) in the team, fact. Now is he world class like Allison? No and I'm happy we have him cos he is clearly better BUT this idea that Karius was dog turd all along is baseless. He was not and in fact, I remember people saying Karius should be kept even when we were linked with Allison (cos he conceded 7 against us in the CL". How people's minds change so quickly.

16 Aug 2019 18:27:51
Exactly BRover, I personally would've been happy to keep Karius as number 2.

16 Aug 2019 19:07:56
Worst keeper in the world is still Charles Itanje, remember him? Awful keeper.

16 Aug 2019 22:52:50
Yeah, people saying Karius is worse have clearly forgotten 3 seasons of conceding from the first shot on target against us in nearly every match. Nice guy, Migs, but outside of his knack for penalties, he's an awful, awful shot stopper. I think he had about half a season just after we briefly dropped him for Jones where you could expect him to save a shot that wasn't straight at him.

They made obvious errors on more or less an equal frequency. Karius' were more overtly costly, but that's offset a bit by the fact that if you discount both their mistakes for the sake of a comparison, Karius is far better. Much braver off his line, better with his feet and can make saves than Migs can't. But outside of this hypothetical mistake free comparison, neither was good enough.

Karius' problem seems to be keeping his concentration. I gather at Besiktas he's been a mix of good saves and absolutely bizarre errors, which is kinda what he was like here. I wouldn't be surprised if he becomes a good keeper in his 30s as he matures and spends less time on Instagram. Too bad we can't wait that long.

For the moment, Adrian is probably better than both.

16 Aug 2019 23:21:14
Adrian has only played one game for us and people are jumping at proclaiming him the GK Supreme. Karius was better than Migs for me. I have no doubts about it. He just fell apart one particular night, and we were all watching. And it's way too soon to say if Adrian is better than Karius. I'd reserve judgment at least until Adrian has played 10 games or so. Just seems odd to me that West Ham's second choice was not offered a contract good enough to keep him.

17 Aug 2019 08:35:00
25 - hmmmm more like sciatica I'd say. we have picked up LOTS of trophies along the way but there is that nagging numb feeling shooting down my leg. hope to get it fixed soon.!

{Ed025's Note - best of luck with that mate..
