    Struggling with what? Adrian has looked a fuck waiting to happen, and it has. Mignolet was like that occasionally. He had general flaws that didn't suit our game, but mistakes wise it was nowhere near what Adrian has been like so far, I'd have neither personally but let's not rewrite history.

    It'd be a surprise if he didn't fuck up at some point today.

    Yes I voted for Mignolet, but to be fair Adrian is a bit of an unknown still. I mean looking at it at face value, the man has made a major mistake in almost every game he has played in for us. Can't remember anything against Norwich(remind me) though.
    Point is Mignolet didn't cost us every game and he didn't do Karius and Adrian type gaffes as far as I can remember.
    Let's just be patient with Adrian, he had a decent career at West Ham he can do well with us.

    Congrats to Adrian on his first clean sheet of the season. No mistakes today.

    Is big Ali back after the international break? Adrian has been very hit and miss, thankfully none of his howlers have come in tight games but Ill be very relieved to see the big man back in the sticks.

    Whilst Adrian hasn't built up our trust with ball at his feet, he's been making some very good saves and consistently. The one where he went to ground early and still made the save yesterday was very good. Avoided giving away pen too. I like him.

    Considering the way he's had to step more or less straight up into the first team I think he's done excellently overall.

    Yeah but the problem is Ming would now be first choice.

    The defence is looking like it trusts Adrian behind them which is good. I like him, he's settling into this role that he will never have dreamed of - starting keeper for the European Champions who are at the top of the league having won 100% of their games. I also think he'll be a very clam and useful member of the squad once Alisson returns because of this faith shown in him.

    Everyone giving him shit over his first couple of performances seems to be forgetting that he trained with some no mark Italian side in the summer & played no actual football whatsoever, not even friendlies.

    Even Andy Lonergan had more actual match time than he did this summer.

    That in mind, it's hardly surprising he looked rusty as fuck, & it's actually more surprising he played as well as he did.

    Article: Liverpool will give Adrian a series of intense training sessions to ensure their number two goalkeeper is up to speed for when their season resumes in two weeks.

    The Spaniard arrived at Liverpool four weeks ago to act as Alisson Becker's deputy but a serious calf issue for the Brazilian has catapulted Adrian into the spotlight.

    He kept his first clean sheet of the campaign at Burnley on Saturday and it clearly meant a great deal to him, as he dropped to his knees and punched the air in relief. He had earlier made an excellent stop to deny Jay Rodriguez a consolation goal.


    It was an improved performance from the former West Ham keeper but Liverpool are conscious of bringing his game on further and he will be at Melwood for the next few days, working under goalkeeper John Achterberg, rather than having time-off like the other non-international players.

    Liverpool have no concerns about Adrian's shot stopping or his ability to deal with physical pressure at crosses - they prepared for the trip to Turf Moor by using rugby crashpads on him - but they will concentrate on what he does with the ball at his feet.

    While it would be unrealistic to expect Adrian to get to the levels Alisson showed when in possession, Liverpool hope the extra practice will lead to Adrian improving by the time Newcastle arrive at Anfield on September 14.

    Part of the problem Adrian has had since he joined Liverpool is the fact that he has only taken part in around a dozen proper training sessions, as he missed some days due to a freak ankle injury sustained in the European Super Cup final in Istanbul when a pitch invading fan slid into him.

    Alisson is continuing to make good progress from the injury he sustained in the opening Premier League fixture against Norwich but Liverpool are not putting any pressure on the £64.6million man, who last week was named the top goalkeeper in last season's Champions League.

    He had to spend some days on crutches initially but Liverpool hope Alisson will be ready to return at some point in early autumn.
