A rare type of question for ed002.

Who do you think is the no. 1 Goalkeeper in the World right now? Interested to hear your individual opinion on something rather than asking about transfers.

{Ed002's Note - It is very difficult to compare players at all and it is harder still where goalkeepers are playing for successful sides with strong defences as opposed to a goalkeeper who is playing for a struggling side and defence. In the Premier League the likes of Alisson and Ederson have been standing out - but right now they are playing with leading sides. It is not unlike Iker Casillas when he was at Real Madrid, Gianluigi Buffon at Juventus or Manuael Neuer at Bayer Munich a few years ago - they are all very good goalkeepers but each playing at the leading clubs. Who is to say that any of the up and coming goalkeepers like Ahmadou Dia of l'OM or Martín Silva of Libertad are not already the best in the world but we just don't know it yet? Millinarios' Wuilker Farinez is attracting the attention of leading European sides and Andrii Lunin is already shaping up for what is expected to be a good career after being plucked from the relative obscurity of Zorya Luhansk by Real Madrid. But I would have to probably say that consistent performer Jan Oblak (who was Klopp's pick for Liverpool) of Atletico Madrid might have the edge still.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Wow, excellent response Ed002. As much as i hate to say it, with him being a Man Utd player, but I think Dean Henderson will go far. He should be England's starting keeper in the Euros and beyond.

{Ed002's Note - A lot is expected of Dean Henderson as you say.}

Glad klopp got our number keepe now as for me he is better imo than Oblak
We have won a champions league with our current keeper and could possibly win a league title someday 😂
Salah was klopp second or third choice so hopefully so is Werner lol 😂.

{Ed002's Note - Salah was fourth choice and it needed a hard sell by the scouting staff.}

If I were utd, I’d cash in on De gea and put my faith in Henderson.

As would I, LFC Hopeful. The trouble MUFC will have is offloading such a high-earning player. No one will go anywhere near those wages for someone barely in the top 5 of his position.

Henderson has been amazing. Yes utd player but I like him. Been much better than de gea.

Haven't seen enough of oblak, but Ali is so good. I don't know how he holds onto half the balls he does. He's the best for me.

I think that’s the thing with Allison, I meant to ask Ed 1 a couple of months ago actually if there had been a change in the way our keepers are being coached. I felt when allison first came in he was pushing shots out, just like the previous 2 keepers had been, but the last few months has been a noticeable difference where by he’s holding on to most shots. It makes one hell of a difference to the way we defend and must be great for the defence not trying to scramble rebounds all the time. Previously it felt like fairly average shots were turned into dangerous situations from the way the sacs were being made.
