I've read on sky sport's Adrian extended his contract surely we cannot have him as our second choice! 🤔.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Jun 2021 20:07:02
It's official mate, hopefully he will just be a third choice.

14 Jun 2021 20:11:07
Kelleher is 2nd choice. He has been since January.

14 Jun 2021 20:11:34
I think he’ll be our third choice now behind kelleher, and there are far worse third choice keepers out there, if he is our second choice, then I’d be somewhat concerned.

14 Jun 2021 20:14:33
Likely 3rd choice Molbs. Kelleher is firmly 2nd.

14 Jun 2021 20:29:01
Only for him wouldn't have won the super cup il support any player who puts on our Jersey good bad or indifferent.

14 Jun 2021 21:01:35
I don’t think it’s a good move using a space up in the squad on a 3rd choice keeper when we are struggling with HG players when we have Grabara who is a better keeper and homegrown.

14 Jun 2021 21:15:43
I hope Kelleher is second choice and doesn’t go on loan. Adrian has cost us and will continue to do so anytime he plays.

14 Jun 2021 21:27:38
I thought I read somewhere that the plan was to transition Adrian into more of a mentoring role for the young keepers and into coaching.

That would fit with his third keeper role, given the (semi) official line that Kelleher was effectively promoted to the second choice keeper at the start of the year.

14 Jun 2021 21:29:37
I agree Jon Lennon. But it’s the nervousness that worries me. Like mignolet before him he spreads a nervous energy throughout the team and stadium when he plays.
That’s the only thing I can’t handle as a fan, Adrian Mignolet Sakho Lovren Moreno Spearing even back to Roy Evans days. We would’ve won the league without David James nerves.

That Atletico blunder still hurts me. I know it shouldn’t but it does.

{Ed0666's Note - Don’t forget he deputized for Allison for a load of games the season we won the title and gained us points with some wonder saves and special performances. I feel he has enough credit in the bank to have a few poor performances. Besides we missed chance after chance against Atleti we should of had it wrapped up before Adrians booby.

15 Jun 2021 03:51:43
Ed0666 - you didn’t watch the games, I’m sorry. While there were a few special saves, the one against Napoli was a magnificent example, there was not a single special performance to name or anything close to it. He cost us goals against Southampton, Leicester, Brighton and Chelsea (super cup), all of which came in his first 10 games for the club, and he made many more mistakes in those games that fortunately amounted to nothing. His goalkeeping also got us knocked out the FA Cup against Chelsea, and while the game against Atletico would not have gone to extra time had Mané and Salah been playing properly, Adrian let us down when he was needed, with 3 awful save attempts getting us dumped out of the CL.
He’s not good enough, and everyone knows it, regardless of if he’s a nice guy or not.

{Ed001's Note - he is more than good enough to be 3rd choice, ridiculous comment. Who do you want us to have as 3rd choice keeper? Perhaps we should go and buy Oblak and Donnarumma? Some of you live in a complete fantasy world.}

14 Jun 2021 22:10:44
Reserve keepers are very understated and your hardly going to have a worldie sat on the bench every week, is he perfect? No, is he committed to the club and a good lad to have around? Absolutely, no brainer for me.

14 Jun 2021 22:46:28
Don't forget Karius LFC8.

15 Jun 2021 04:05:56
Ed001 - If he is genuinely 3rd choice, then fine. I thought Kelleher might be advised to go on loan given he probably needs game time. My comment was a response to Ed0666’s view of Adrian giving some great performances, which he didn’t, and thinking he would likely be 2nd choice again.

{Ed001's Note - Adrian played really well initially, I think you are forgetting just how much he contributed. But that seems to be the way of it nowadays.}

15 Jun 2021 06:16:03
You are wrong Lowe. He did have some great games and covered for ali brilliantly which contributed to us winning the league. He is going to be 3rd choice. Not good enough for 1st admittedly but nonetheless he did contribute and to say different is incorrect and disrespectful.

15 Jun 2021 07:00:09
I think we won 10 in a row in the league, and there were some great saves.

15 Jun 2021 12:02:20
Edà1, this is a case of short term memory. Adrian helped us win the league, fact. He was undefeated in hi 10 or so PL appearances, fact. We can try to dissect his performances in those games and all that BUT the fact remains that he was undefeated and did not cost us any points overall.

As for the Atleti game, I come back to this again. We had enuff chances to win three games that night and our strikers messed up (not the first time and definitely not the last, as we have seen) . Even the Atleti-oriented media in Spain called their win a miracle so even they disagree that Adrian lost us the game. It should never have come to that had we done the bus. upfront esp. knowing we did not have AB1 in goal for that game.

Adrian is 3rd choice and that is fine by me. For those saying he is not good enuff to be 3rd choice, please provide us the names of the very good GK's starting for other teams in Europe week in, week out that we can get to be 3rd choice here. I'll wait.

15 Jun 2021 12:45:20
I agree with ed0666. I even remember at the time we, the fans that are around this forum, and one of the eds was disappointed not to see Adrian called for Spain national team. Adrian is decent enough keeper that helped us win 2 major trophies in his short LFC career. As a 3rd choice keeper he is good enough. From January till the end of the season he was a 3rd keeper. He was called once in the Epl for that period and had a clean sheet. I'm happy with the decision. Can one of the eds shred more information on how long is his extension?

15 Jun 2021 14:31:18
Ed002 do you know if Kelleher is indeed sticking around next season or going on loan and where any interest lies? As an Irish Red I'd like him to become our Number 1 but to help him do that he'll need to play games.
Thanks a mil in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what the plan is with the Adrian situation. There is interest from a couple of Championship sides.}

15 Jun 2021 15:09:13
Okay thanks Ed002. Can you say who?

{Ed002's Note - Ipswich and Sheffield United if they lose one.}
