It was an incredible fee for a keeper, but he has looked worth it. Barely put a foot (or hand) wrong since day one. Adds so much to the attacking side compared to Mignolet it's unreal.

Definitely, he's sublime

Anyone else think he seemed back to his most confident with the ball at his feet again tonight, especially noticeable in the 1st half? Looked a massive save just before we broke for the 3rd.

Played a long pass out to Trent out wide and i'm sure it was a no look pass, insane if it was

I wouldn't swap him for any keeper on the planet.

He's easily in the top 5 on the planet right now, Arguably top 3.

There was literally no-one who thought Karius was a better goalkeeper than him. I did question whether he was worth 60million more than Karius when we had other areas of the team to strengthen - and I was wrong. He's absolutely and undoubtedly world class, very probably the very best there is right now, and while Karius didn't actually cost us anything other than the CL final - those were his only two goal-costing errors of the whole season - he didn't pull off the worldies that Alisson does, and good as he was with the ball at his feet, he didn't launch attacks like Alisson does, either.

Certainly tonight showed exactly why he's worth the money - a difference-maker at both ends of the pitch, in a position where most teams are content to just have someone who stops goals going in.

It wasn't just tonight though was it? Him running to take the freekick off trent so he gets a better angle for his cross was again something genius. The quick freekick after that disallowed goal to Trent who set off Salah to score earlier in the season was the same. He's just switched on to the offensive possibilities which you almost never see/expect from other goalkeepers so frequently.

Commented on this a while ago, it started at Watford and PSG, he's fucking unreal what a man. My stream cut out for the last goal, any gifs or videos of it around the place?

The sequence of play that led to our third underlines what he's all about, a reflex save followed by a great show of athleticism to prevent a corner which he rounded off with a good throw out to put us on the counter.

Top class keeper.

He is. That whole sequence spoke volumes. Still strange how the clown across the park gets the plaudits for distribution, though, eh.

Twice in four days Alisson's quick thinking, awareness and distribution have sealed important games for us.

Past two games he's delivered a stature of goalkeeping weve needed for years....not spectacular..but a level of command that

It makes a change that there is not abject panic whenever the opposition get near our box or get a set piece. VVD also plays a big role there, of course, but the confidence this 'keeper instills makes a massive difference.

He had a minor off night in front of a kamikaze high line ... in an incredibly intense away atmosphere ... against Europe's in-form player at the time.

Thankfully our scouting team used the audition of an entire season rather than a one-off game.
Better than the Invincibles.
Better than Mourinho's Chelsea.
Better than the fabled Man Utd treble team.

I'm alright with that.

Just comparing his fee with Kepa's fee - an inexperienced keeper who isnt dominant in his area. We've got an absolute steal, just like with VVD. Hope both of them play for us for the next 7-8 years.

In fairness, letís not re-write history. Showing support for Karius was fine, but there were a lot of posters over the summer acting as if Alisson wouldnít have been a significant upgrade on him. It was nothing to do with whether Alisson was available or not and everything to do with making out as if Karius was some borderline elite keeper.

It doesnít really matter because heís here and heís smashing it which is great for us, but still.

As someone who was part of most of those conversations, no. You might be thinking of Oblak.

I think Alisson is outperforming expectations. We're not going back over the Karius thing. He was fine until he got concussion, but maybe you are one of the weirdos who doesn't believe in medical science, whatever. We have a great keeper, that's all that matters.

His presence in goal reminds me of Schmeichel the best keeper Iíve ever seen, only he combines that with outrageous ability on the ball also, really a one off type player and we have another freak like player just in front of him at cb(make that two if we include Gomez) scary stuff.

Nice try, but no. He absolutely was concussed and that (possibly - as itís impossible to say for sure) played a part in what happened in the final. In fact, Iím pretty sure my first post after the final was hoping he had the right support network around him to help him cope with what happened.

I just know what I was reading in the various Karius threads. But yes, I agree on the end point and thatís the last Iíll say because I also would rather focus on how amazing Alisson is.
