Ed01 your thoughts on Alisson?!

{Ed001's Note - my thoughts are still the same as before we bought him, when I was begging for us to buy him. An absolutely top class keeper with the potential to be the best in the world. In fact, an argument could be made for him this season having been the best in the world.

Like every player, he is human and does make the odd mistake, but he makes up for it many times over with the things he does right. I have heard people argue Ederson is better on the ball, but I disagree, there is no keeper in the world who can distribute the ball to the level he can. He won Serie A keeper of the year last season and he is on track to win the Prem version this time.}

Agree3 Disagree0

12 Dec 2018 05:31:53
Even if Ederson could distribute better (at best they’re equal), he couldn’t hold a candle to Allison.

12 Dec 2018 06:10:27
Ive got to say Allison has started to impress me a little more. Still got a bit more to do to be up there with ddg. Hopefully he will get there.

{Ed025's Note - i think he is better than de gea walter certainly this season, liverpool payed big money for him and VVD but they have both justified their price tags mate..

12 Dec 2018 06:18:38
I was one of the those that wanted Karius to get another season to prove himself coz we were overpaying for a GK who was not a significant improvement on what we had and spent only one good season in Europe.
Its safe to say I got my butt kicked on that one coz Alisson has been a revelation. Best GK in the league at the moment and top3 in the world.

12 Dec 2018 07:27:17
I think Allison is already an absolute legend but he’s still not at de gea standard yet. That said, I think de gea might prove to be one of the greatest of all time but if there’s one keeper I’ve seen in the last ten years that looks capable of beating him, it’s allison. Ederson isn’t even in the same league.

{Ed001's Note - have you not been watching de Gea lately? He has been half the keeper Alisson has. In fact he has been so bad that Spain want to drop him and he has cost Man Utd goals instead of saving them as usual. I don't know what is up with him, but he is really struggling. His head is not right at the moment.}

12 Dec 2018 07:37:02
alisson is the best this season in epl and most likely the best in the world on current form. he needs to it consistently to be named among de gea (as he has been doing it consistently apart from this season, earning points for his club), bt there's no doubt he's the best so far this season.

12 Dec 2018 07:40:46
The last minute save was like Peter Schmeichel.

12 Dec 2018 07:48:31
No man peter Schmeichels save was like alissons. ed01 actually my opinion improved! didn't think that was possible to be honest!

{Ed001's Note - he is a fantastic keeper.}

12 Dec 2018 07:52:42
I completely agree that degea is having a bad season but who at United isn’t? Even with a bad run of form he has been the best keeper in the world by quite a margin for the last few years. Allison is on fire but he’s got a bit to go. Form is temporary and all that. While I’d love Allison to become the goat, he’s not just there yet.

{Ed001's Note - for the last 3 seasons de Gea has been the one player at United who hasn't been having a bad season. There is clearly a problem with him since he went away with Spain in the summer.}

12 Dec 2018 07:54:21
DDG wants out. Its obvious. The poor guy has been spending his best years playing for Jose and hoping his team qualify for a top6 finish while playing dinosaur football in front of Smalling and JOnes.
He will be gone in the summer unless something drastic changes at Old Trafford. I think the premier league has seen the last of an in form DDG. And Alisson has come at the right time to pick up the pieces and mantle of the best GK in England.

{Ed001's Note - that doesn't make sense. If he wants out, he would not be playing poorly for Spain.}

12 Dec 2018 07:55:18
Pretry much already won epl goalie of the season!

12 Dec 2018 07:57:37
My brother said that to me last night.

12 Dec 2018 08:10:31
More like Clemence!

Job done.

Now for United.

12 Dec 2018 08:18:19
De Gea is probably the main reason United finished where they did last season. But their true level is starting to show now because he isn't there to bail them out, he's even costing them games actually.

12 Dec 2018 08:18:26
I can't wait for Sunday but going on De Gea's performances I can't wait even more, for some odd reason he's leaking in the goals, imagine him against us? he'll crumble imo, we're going to give them a good smashing on Sunday!

12 Dec 2018 08:35:07
DDG has always been poor for Spain though. First time he has looked clueless for man Utd. He will be gone this summer for sure.

12 Dec 2018 09:10:19
I’d say degea’s heart is gone after the Spanish move never happened in my opinion. Where could he go at this point anyway? Even if he hits form again the big teams have capable keepers. Regardless, I am ridiculously hopeful Allison keeps up the form and becomes one of the true greats and does what degea did for United for the last few years (earn them at least 12 additional points singlehanded)

12 Dec 2018 09:37:22
De Gea has been quality the last few years shot stopping but wouldn’t suit us as he is not good enough with the ball at his feet for how we want to play. Alisson is perfect for us good on the ball commands his area which is what we need as we play a higher line and the way he makes great saves look simple and straightforward just shows how great he is
Plus he can play the guitar!

12 Dec 2018 10:50:55
Love Alisson, what a huge difference a goalkeeper makes! He’s confident, controlling and mostly calming, although he always seems to have one pass a game go directly to their first line - although that could still make his pass accuracy 98% with the amount he has to his feet.

12 Dec 2018 09:41:45
Ed025 hope your well mate. Just picking up on what you’ve said above about Alisson being better than DDG and praising him. You were saying a few weeks back that you thought Pickford is as good as Alisson mate, do you stand by what you said or do you think you may of under estimated Alisson ability and was clouded by his one mistake away at Leicester months ago? Not looking for an argument mate and appreciate your input as always just wanted to ask.

{Ed025's Note - im thinking i was wrong to compare them virgi, alisson has been very good and along with VVD they have been your best 2 players mate..

12 Dec 2018 02:17:35
Immense from the lads last night but in particular Alisson. The front three look to be clicking again, and it feels like we may be gradually adjusting to the new more balanced system and are building a head of steam rather than having to scramble for results a little like we were a few weeks ago (even if we did so very effectively! ) .

It's coming together boys, let's hope we teach Man Utd a lesson this weekend and go into the Man City game in the new year with a lead to protect.

{Ed0333's Note - let’s also pray we have a defense come Saturday. Hope TAA and Matip are ok.

Agree3 Disagree0

12 Dec 2018 03:23:55
Agree mate, our defence has been immense but I wouldn’t mind if we ended up with Robbo, VVD, Lovren and Milner at the back worst case. We have some real depth now and can still play Hendo, Keita and Gini/ Shaqiri in midfield!

{Ed0333's Note - Agreed Robbo, Lovren, VVD and Milner would have to be the minimum tho mate, that’s if TAA and Matip are indeed injured. I must admit I’ve been quietly impressed with Matip lately. He’s got a mistake or two in him but he does seem to play well with VVD beside him. I know most don’t want to see Fab at right back but if he’s good enough for his national side there I’m sure he could do a job for us there if need be. I have a feeling Keita & Fab will play Sunday.

12 Dec 2018 04:03:26
Good shout - you know Mourinho will stick Fellaini in to win those long balls at some point and Fabinho will be useful.

{Ed0333's Note - I thought Fab was fab for the cameo he had against Napoli. Ironically he nearly cost us the game as it was his mistake that Becker had to make that superlative save at the end from. I’m on such a high and so enamoured by my football club right now I don’t even care if Adam Lalana plays on Sunday mate.

12 Dec 2018 06:20:50
I think we need Lovren more than Matip specifically against Man Utd courtesy of a certain Mr Fellaini. Lovren's better against physical brutes like Lukaku and Fellaini.
TAA, Robbo, VVD and LOvren imo against Man Utd is the bare minimum we need coz they are a team that always seem to have a plan that works against us in recent years.

13 Dec 2018 00:07:15
Cap in hand I wanted to see lovren start over matip. However, matip was solid and it was no surprise that it was lovren marking at the back post when they almost snatched the point they needed. When he plays with confidence he can be a beast, but he looked nervous when he came on. Bugger that VVD will miss the first leg, he's arguably our most valuable player, imo.

12 Dec 2018 01:32:27
Have to petition to change the goalkeepers area to alisson wonderland!

Agree6 Disagree3

11 Dec 2018 23:52:24
Here's hoping we stuff united on Sunday to round off a great 2 weeks.

Agree9 Disagree1

12 Dec 2018 00:16:51
It'll be their cup final, don't forget.

10-0-0 formation expected.

12 Dec 2018 01:04:44
"10-0-0 formation expected"

Yet so true.

12 Dec 2018 01:29:07
U forgot their goalie. so11-0.

12 Dec 2018 07:31:30
I’m wary that Man Utd always raise their game for us. They aren’t really playing for Mourinho but they’ll play for pride against us. The last few times we’ve faced them I’ve thought we were the far better team going in and every time they played much better. Hope we stuff them but not enough that Mourinho gets the sack.

12 Dec 2018 07:32:49
Can you imagine both Everton and ourselves winning, next weekend?

12 Dec 2018 09:14:24
Fair edit on the Man U ed- that’s how I describe them to my Man U mates to rile them up, slip of the tongue. Careless and disrespectful on my part. Obviously no need to post this.

{Ed001's Note - it originates from songs about the Munich Disaster, which is why I would never use it. That was when it was first used to describe them, so it is something that you probably shouldn't even use in jest with a United fan to be honest.}

12 Dec 2018 09:38:03
Strangely enough, I first learned of it from the official lfc mag a few years ago when they showed the league table and referred to them as it. I thought it was a typo and then copped after far too long a moment. It was from the Rafa era and Mascherano was on the front cover, that’s all I remember. I genuinely didn’t believe it had anything to do with the Munich disaster at all. Obviously that’s sacrosanct. Aw ed, I’m going to have to go back to them and offer an apology. Fairly certain they were unaware as well. You’ve ruined my day ed, ruined it good.

{Ed001's Note - sorry mate and I am disgusted that was allowed in the offal mag. Shows how badly the club has been run in recent years.}

12 Dec 2018 09:43:27
Wow just googled it, spot on as always ed. Horrific reference. Well, I’ll never use that term again. I have some apologies to make.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, you didn't know.}

11 Dec 2018 22:52:13
As the Late Al Davis (Former owner of the Oakland Raiders) would say, "Just win, baby! ".

Agree6 Disagree3

12 Dec 2018 07:35:36
Those snarly tough guy Raiders, were really something. 👍.

11 Dec 2018 22:45:19
I wonder how much we will miss vvd for the first leg of the last 16.

{Ed0333's Note - I cant believe I’m saying this but Matip has been decent of late. Maybe he could be an able deputy? Matip and Lovren know how to play with each other so hopefully it will be ok. The confidence is gushing through that team at the moment, we’ll be fine Brian.

Agree3 Disagree1

11 Dec 2018 23:01:54
Gomes should be fit, No?

11 Dec 2018 23:33:52
Likely opponents:

Juve, Real Madrid, Dortmund, Munich, Barcelona orrrrr

Porto 🙏.

{Ed0333's Note - Real Madrid please Ken.

11 Dec 2018 23:42:36
Really don't care which ones we get as we have to beat them all if we are to win the champions league. But real Madrid would be payback esp that lovely person Ramos.

12 Dec 2018 00:02:26
Real Madrid would be my first choice, we need revenge and I fully believe we'll knock them out with ease now but bring on any of them, it makes no difference, we're capable of beating the lot. We're starting to look a lot like last season recently, it couldn't come at a better time, bring any team on.

12 Dec 2018 00:06:07
Honestly in this form, I would take anyone. I can guarantee no one wants us though!

12 Dec 2018 01:29:50
Real madrid please🙏.

12 Dec 2018 05:23:12
We won’t beat any of them without VVD. Sorry. But true.

{Ed025's Note - he was superb again last night stoneage, he will be a big loss mate..

12 Dec 2018 06:30:32
Agree Ed0333 Real Madrid would be a good. A chance to get revenge!

12 Dec 2018 06:41:45
One thing’s for sure, none of them will want us! 💪.

12 Dec 2018 07:10:34
Lovren will step up in VVD's place. He's played a lot with Matip in the past and they'll do okay. Anyway, February is a long way away. Let's wait and see.

12 Dec 2018 07:39:20
Like the majority I’d love Real Madrid. Perfect time to play them they’re dreadful at the moment. Gomez and Lovren will be more than capable in My mind. Don’t want Matip. The lad goes for happy little runs all the time. He was out of position quite a few times last night.

12 Dec 2018 10:47:21
We'd probably stuff Bayern.

12 Dec 2018 13:44:49
If it had to come down to one of the big boys, Madrid or Bayern as they aren’t having the best season. Really though, the only team i’d want to see us face without van dijk is Porto.

11 Dec 2018 22:27:57
Who do we fancy in the last 16, Porto again would nice.

{Ed0333's Note - honestly I want Real Madrid I think they are there for the taking Spud. I would love to draw them and wipe that smug grin of a certain defenders face.

Agree4 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 22:58:08
Easiest draw possible for me thanks. Let the other big teams knock each other out.

11 Dec 2018 23:08:01
After we get VVD back then I want Real Madrid.

12 Dec 2018 01:57:35
Real Madrid with the second leg at Anfield please!

12 Dec 2018 02:30:35
Imagine we getting Real Madrid and Ramos facing Lovren VVD and co.

{Ed0333's Note - I don’t think there’s a better time to exact revenge. Bring on Los Blanco I say.

11 Dec 2018 22:20:36
He’s the best keeper we’ve had since Clemence 70m or what ever him vvd and robbo have been unbelievable buys.

Agree15 Disagree2

11 Dec 2018 22:44:53
Move over, DDG. Allison just took your spot.

{Ed0333's Note - true dat Brover.

11 Dec 2018 23:11:11
Why has it took this long to get such an amazing keeper, it stands out like a sore thumb how good he is!

{Ed0333's Note - I bet he has a sore thumb after that save...I’ll get my coat.

11 Dec 2018 23:22:27
Haha he is the Brazilian wall ed love this guy worth every penny!

{Ed0333's Note - bargain mate

12 Dec 2018 01:31:13
That guy has completely changed my opinion about Brazilian goalkeepers. weren't they supposed to be bad? well I'm glad this guy is the best in the world!

13 Dec 2018 00:02:27
Allison was cheap mate, he would be cheap at double the price.

11 Dec 2018 22:08:56
AB1 what a keeper. Nuff said. Oh and Mo i love you.

Agree19 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 22:03:31
KBL - do you feel silly after your last CL post then?

To all the negative contributors of this site, we’re top of league and in knockouts of CL. We haven’t won anything yet so not getting carried away, but for goodness sake let’s see nothing but positivity on here now?

People wrote off our midfield 3 tonight before the kick off but we bossed that game and created no end of chances.

In the words of Jurgen “BOOM”.

Agree13 Disagree3

11 Dec 2018 22:21:18
Boom indeed mate! get in Liverpool, so chuffed!

{Ed0333's Note - DOUBLE BOOM I SAY!

11 Dec 2018 22:21:25
Gini all over the place worked like a man possessed he’s was brilliant.

11 Dec 2018 22:22:10
Every single player was brilliant tonight and Klopp got his team selection spot on. People should have more faith in our manager.

11 Dec 2018 22:46:43
*7red, negativity is simply what some people do. Nothing will ever change that. We could win the CL and/ or the {PL and they would still moan. Let's just continue supporting our team and continue to be positive. That's all we can do, really.

12 Dec 2018 00:41:21
BRover, I stand by everything I wrote in my last CL post {7/ 11} as that was genuinely how I felt.

But I also give credit where it is due, and the lads deserve the utmost credit over the last few games - Burnley, Bournemouth and Napoli - because in my opinion the team is starting to play like we know they can.

When somebody posts opinions on here that you don't agree with why should it be classed as negative? If I am concerned about the way the team is performing I have every right to say so.

Anyway, well done to the lads tonight. A great performance, and once again, a magic atmosphere in the ground.

Long may it continue.

12 Dec 2018 00:51:55
BRover - referring to your negative CL post on 30th November do you feel silly now?

What's the word I am looking for? Oh yes I know.

12 Dec 2018 08:04:16
KBL - you came on here and declared us out of the CL, you should feel daft.

12 Dec 2018 11:59:30
87red - a posters opinion should not be called negative. Read BRovers post on 30th November. If he can call me negative for mine then I can call him negative for his.

Ner, ner, ner ner ner!

12 Dec 2018 19:42:20
KBL, I never said we would be out of the CL after a poor result so stop deflecting. I was upset with the performance vs PSG and gave my opinion on it. We were poor and that was a fact.

However, It was you who said that we would not make it out of the group after that game. That is negativity and you were wrong and you need to admit that instead of projecting and deflecting.
