    There's nothing in the rumours mate. It's a case of a load of papers and Paul Robinson going 2+2=5

    Butland has never pushed on as a keeper and is suffering from all that hype that English keepers get. He's been utter tosh at Stoke since his big move. I remember loads of fans wanting him here before we signed Allison. He's garbage, for all the issues that Adrian has right now i wouldn't want to replace him with Butland. No thanks.

    Agreed. It was very unprofessional and unnecessary.

    The whole world can see that Adrian is not the right fit, but to kick your own team mate when he is down is totally out of order. It's clear that he has great resentment against the club, for the way his career has stalled. This one's not coming back.

    Yeah, we're not signing Butland.

    Adrian has one year left on his deal, and its pretty safe to say that he wont get a new contract.
    There are quite a few decent GKs available after this season on free transfers. One of them is Vicente Guaita from Palace.
    That could be a decent number two.

    I quite like Butland, but he's the same as a whole range of possible back-up keepers - give them good coaching, plenty of encouragement and a run of games, and they'll probably do well, but bung them in for a game or two after a long wait to prove themselves all over again, and they're likely to be just as flawed as Adrian. There's no short term fix.

    Given the choice between too raw or rotting fungal growth, at least the former is somewhat palatable whereby you can keep it down for longer than five seconds.

    I wouldn't actually worry much more than with Adrian. He'll make mistakes, but not the stupid mistakes Adrian makes. And he'll learn.

    From the few games I've seen him play, he looks a very talented goalkeeper but not as commanding as you'd hope.
    He also had a very high risk in his passing and was almost to calm with the ball at his feet, re the game against Villa last season.

    As I've said before. He should have gone on loan this year to a Championship side and played competitive football for the entire season.
    That would have given us a clearer picture of where he is in his development and if he's ready to replace Adrian next season.

    Pitaluga and Jaros were part of the first team training group today. Pitaluga looks like a quiet, but very self-assured kid. He is very skinny though. Jaros looked a bit terrified, which is understandable.

    Some bad news & good news rumours on Twitter today about Alisson:

    Bad News - he is out for the rest of his life

    Good News - that is likely to be less than 2 weeks

    Does that mean he dies in less than 2 weeks?

    Article:
    Liverpool decided against bringing back Pepe Reina after ‘desperate’ Simon Mignolet’s departure.

    Mignolet left Liverpool in August 2019 after a season as Alisson’s understudy, choosing instead to become a starter at Club Brugge.

    The 32-year-old was ‘desperate to get away’ and feature regularly, according to The Athletic, who claim Pepe Reina ‘was keen on returning to Liverpool but the Anfield hierarchy felt that they needed a younger option’.

    They instead signed sprightly 33-year-old free agent Adrian.

    Alex McCarthy of Southampton was also considered for the back-up role but, much as with Ben Foster and Jack Butland this summer, Liverpool decided against it.

    James Pearce writes that ‘there was never any prospect of the club dipping into the transfer market ahead of this week’s domestic deadline’.

    ‘Klopp and sporting director Michael Edwards don’t do knee-jerk reactions,’ he adds.

    ‘They decided to keep faith with Adrian as Alisson’s deputy in the summer and that stance didn’t waver following events at Villa Park.’

    Reina eventually joined Aston Villa instead on a short-term loan deal, conceding 20 goals in 12 games before moving to Lazio at the end of the season.

    He remains one of the finest goalkeepers in Premier League history, keeping a phenomenal 134 clean sheets in 285 games for Liverpool between 2005 and 2014.

    But the mysterious ‘Anfield hierarchy’ felt he was too old for the position at 37, so moved for compatriot Adrian instead.

    Adrian has come under fire recently, teammate Marko Grujic joking that his performance in defeat to Villa ‘probably ended’ his career on Merseyside.

    Jurgen Klopp defended the Spaniard after a mistake in Champions League defeat to Atletico Madrid last season, noting that he had “saved us in so many moments when he played” before.

    “He’s a man and he knows that’s how it is,” said the manager. “We will not blame him for a second – what you (the media) do, I don’t know, but stay respectful, that would be really nice.”

    McCarthy would have been a great deputy

    If there actually was a chance that Ben Foster would agree to come as a no.2 we should have gone steaming in there to get him.
