Hes on 0 for arsenal. That already places him ahead of mignolet and the amount of points/stupid goals hes dropped since the start of his career at liverpool.

4 months good at liverpool when majority of his time before that hes been wank does not place him ahead of cech who has been one of the most consistent and best keepers previously in the prem.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Agree that Cech is better than Mignolet, but don't think the gap is HUGE.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Mig in bottom 6 EPL keepers but getting a new one still low priority.

Re: English Football 2015/16

When I said Cech was 3rd best keeper in the league I expected a few shouts for Lloris (who IMO has declined over the past couple of seasons) and maybe Hart from some crazy City fans but never did I think someone would say Mignolet. Mignolet is terrible, even during the long winning streak we had last season where we kept a few clean sheets he was still making mistakes that could have lead to goals.

And if Ospina is better how come Cech has just walked into Arsenals first team?

Cech would be first choice at any team other than Chelsea or Man U.

What? I have watched all the games and while they have not all been brilliant games (it's pre-season) there are signs that suggest to me this could be a fantastic season.

Plus I watched Man City's games and they have looked rubbish, Chelsea didn't look great and neither did Man U in the 1 game I watched them play.

Chelsea will turn it on when the real games come but I do think City are there to be overtaken.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Re: English Football 2015/16

Liverpool can have a glorious season. Not at all because of garbage preseason matches.

theshocker - odds are 1:1.11 i think

Re: English Football 2015/16

Proof that keepers matter so little is there is virtually no way to put a bet against an other. Stick Nueur in for Stoke but I'd still take mig for more clean sheets.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Im actually feeling confident for this season. We have decided to beat every bottom 14 team 4-2. Im not sure it will work but its our best strategy given our financial handicap with the teams above us.

Re: English Football 2015/16

how is marshmallow fluff and would it work in combination with either dulce de leche or a chocolate creme(peanut butter unfortunately out of question due to fat concent)?
would be a good alternative for my carb-loads but for like 3-4€ I have to be sure it tastes good

Lallana is pure quality, I love the way he can spin around 360 degrees inside the box when he receives a pass.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Don't understand Liverpool fans' pessimism. We have lost the absolute liabilities that were Gerrard and Johnson. Firmino is superb and Benteke, even if not great, will be better than Balo. While I ultimately don't expect top 4, I expect us to hit 70 points so there will be plenty to cheer.
