Appears to have got his focus back and is definitely one of the best in the prem, but is still not strong enough when challenging for crosses - a keeper needs to fly out and take everyone else out like skittles!

"Fans have knocked Pepe for his dip in form but it was his first dip since coming to LFC. He is much more than just our #1 keeper, he is a leader in the team and that can't be easily replaced. Carry on Pepe, we need u in more ways than one. "

"BR, please also do sit and have a cup of tea in the office with Luis Suarez and chat about his future at LFC. Reina, Suarez, Gerrard, Coutihno etc hold the future progress of LFC. "

"Why does the goalie need to take everyone out at corners? A lot of our failings this year at set-pieces have been due to poor marking. Pepe is a shot stopper with great distribution. Many keepers' are not the best at corners nowadays. That is a boring and out-dated argument. Pepe is a great keeper' YNWA."

"One of the finest keepers in the world. And the only one who is an honorary Scouser. The Spanish seem to fit so well in Liverpool... "

"we have to confirm Pepe as our future number 1 between ther sticks, but that should not rule out we have to buy another keeper, possibly young and with a huge potential and put him to work close to Pepe as within 6-7 years we will have yet a strong replacement for the spanish custodian... Butland, Ter Stegen my favourite... YNWA"

"Kingwillis10...my point about taking everyone out is to put fear/doubt into the likes of Stoke etc, the teams who think they bully you by throwing the ball into the box. Yes you also need strong defenders but to have someone behind you who takes no prisoners will spread confidence right through the back four."

"Pepe Is one of our best ever keepers! Needs to be here next season. Has done a lot for our club. We need a decent back up though... Eh hem... Num2 needs replacing "

"Think Jones has deputised admirably this season - definitely a stronger presence when dealing with crosses - I'd keep him."

"Pepe's form is improving, but he needs to lead by example when the others aren't performing so well. I like to see him shouting at his defenders. They need waking up sometimes."

"Sure it helps to have a keeper who can fly out at crosses but its far better to have a shot stopper like reina. Good defenders are wits needed to deal with them crosses"

"PEPE REINA IS PIVOTAL TO LFC AND BRENDAN RODGERS STYLE OF FOOTBALL. AMAZINGLY, SOME LFC FANS PREFERRED BRAD JONES TO PEPE EARLIER IN THE SEASON ??? NO CONTEST, DESPITE A DIP IN FORM FROM LFC'S NO1 KEEPER DURING THE SEASON."

"Pepe is an excellent shot stopper & has served LFC very well, & like all GKs, he's had a dip in form. Does he have the command of the back 4, no, does he challenge the Stoke style crosses that come in, no; but neither does Iker Casillas. Pepe world class, nearly; outstanding at times, undoubtedly. Great for us all to see him returning to his peak again."

"To mount a PL challenge next season, capturing of 4 players this summer could be enough to make a difference! A Nerveless Goalkeeper, an assured centre half, a class & experience holding midfield, and a fearless & hardworking right winger. "

"I never doubted Reina, World class keeper. It amazed me though when I saw fans calling for Jones to be #1. Some times I wonder if some fans even watch the games."

"Problem at Liverpool we praise praise and praise, Pepe has improved a lot beginning of the year 2013 but as KINGOFCLUBS OBSERVES, CROSSES AND ATTACKING BALS IN HIS 18 YARD BOX VERY IMPORTANT AND HE DOESN'T even corners, a keeper of his calibre, that should be routine. "

"being a realist, Pepe is back up to being a good keeper with his hands, thou I don't think before xmas he had made a single save for about 2 years. I don't think he has ever been the "how did he save that" world class keeper, but ihe is the best with his feet (better than most outfield players). "

"Better than all other keepers we have, purely down to his ability to distribute the ball better. he needs to become the leader in the backline, which he can do. nothing wrong with his ability to deal with crosses, sometimes the defenders need to stand up & do their job better, especially Agger"

"I see keepers' trying that game all he time and their efforts are rewarded with a poor punch. Pepe has never been that type of Keeper' and it has served him well so far. What I don't understand is how you can possible ever throw such hollow criticism at one of the best. YNWA Pepe."

"The hard cold facts are that he has cost us a few points this season and that is why he has had some criticism and deservedly so. To me it looked like a mixture of things - a lack of concentration, loss of focus/belief and a drop in confidence - he now seems to have gotten over this period and if he improves his command of aerial challenges he will definitely be the best there is!
