Does this mean Pepe is leaving as why else would we spend £10m on a bench warmer??

"i didnt expect us signing a gk unless reina leaves. truth is that we lost some needles goals due to reina´s mistakes so maybe BR feels its a place to improve.also mignolet is taller than Reina with our team average height not so big it might be a point"

"If this true I can't see us spending this kind of money on a back up goalkeeper, Reina must be on his way. "

"I think reina will be going next year maybe even later this year ... after Valdes saying he is going to see the last year of his contract out ... so is Buck just getting business done early ... "

"Probably with Valdes leaving Barca next season Reina will join them and Mignolet is a replacement. Just like spurs did with Lloris."

"I don't want Pepe to leave and I also think this is a great signing to keep Pepe on his toes. He is the right age and will great for him to be training with Pepe every day. Two or three years down the road he can then fill Pepe's boots and take over as number 1."

"Good keeper. Now we've only got 2 first team goalies (Reina and Jones) given that Gulacsi has left, it's a good choice. Pushes Jones down the pecking order though... "

"5STARKOP - I think it's because Brad isn't quite there yet - Bless him, he's all heart and makes some cracking saves, but personally I think he's got a short arm span and lacks just that little bit of edge to be a top keeper. I think he might get there one day but for the moment we need a proven consistent stopper with experience of the league."

"I think this deal was in place for Reina going to Barca. Now it seems Reina will stay 1 more year until Valdes leaves Barca. If we wait a year this guy will be playing for another top club and we wont be able to sign him, hence getting him now."

"I dont think that pepe reina is leaving but jones was a realy poor replacement when pepe reina was injured. He is young so i could imagine that mingnolet could play the cup matches and if reina gets an injury again he would replace him"

"Hey guys, If Barca want Riena, they will get him this summer not next year. Barca is such a big club which they will back up plan one year earlier."

"As BR has stated, we will be fighting hard in all compet!tions this coming season, so two excellent keepers are required to fight for the No1 spot; both are proven in the PL & both are good vocal leaders for the defence. If Reina does leave in 6-12months, he'll be showing Mignolet the LFC ropes & prepping him for the No.1 jersey - win-win."

"Look, Simon Mignolet is 24 while Pepe is 31! Besides we have not replaced Doni who left for health reasons! Now that Gulacsi has left us we are a little bit short in the goalkeeping department! YNWA!"

"FSG wont spend that much on a reserve keeper, they like to shop at poundland. Looks like Reina is going. A downgrade in my opinion"

"Hope there is a buy back clause for pepe if he is sold, for when we can one day offer him CL. He deserses his chance to represent an equally big club as lfc in spain and to perhaps be spain no1 in brazil. I do like vorm but rogers knows best"

"If its on bbc it's normally true,means reina is moving on.Ive heard arsenal could come in for him,fans need to remember that pepe Is on over 4 mil a year and can make mistakes.No way mignolet is coming in as backup!"
Kingmat
15th Jun 2013 14:16
"I am not one of these blind faith worshipers of rodgers, but do like him and think he is right for us, even if we struggle next season. He must be backed and we will see some significant progress eventually. I am expecting a serious ownership restructure though, with fsg as 51% owners and the remaining stake plus naming rights going to the highest bidder, quite soon"

"Pepe must stay. Not only is he a good keeper he is the live and soul to keep spirit in dressing room. Very upset when Rafa went. Please stay Pepe, you'll be a legend and really feel we'll get a CL place next season."

"Think about it, Reina gets injured before a big game, Miglonet steps in and were still strong. If we're getting the depth BR says we are then Miglonet will almost certainly play in the FA cup / Capital 1 cup this season giving us a strong cup side. "

"I agree with those that have said this is a win-win situation. We're building a strong squad, one good goalkeeper is not enough. Whoever is on form will play! I agree Pepe is the better GK, but injuries as he had this season can cost points. However, if this takes money away from Alderweireld, a DM/LB, and, especially, Mkhitaryan, then maybe not worth it."

"As long as it's been published by BBC, it means that it's gonna happen, which is good in both cases whether Pepe is staying as he needs to feel that his place is not secured anymore, or leaving as Mignolet is considered to be a very good replacement. "

"Need to have real competition for every position in the first team, ideal scenario would be to have 3 players of similar ability all fighting for each individual place in the first team, competion should keep everyone on their toes. This gives many options and injury insurance cover as well. That's the theory I think. "

"Reina has no intentions of leaving whatsoever, Mignolet will be a great understudy, now get the young Reading Keeper and that's the backdoor well and truly secured."
Loz99
15th Jun 2013 16:57
"Pepe is here for the long haul, that you can depend upon. Mignolet will make a fantastic deputy when called in and great cover. Reading keeper (whatshisname?)will be super cover waiting in the wings. I'd say we would be well set up for goalies. Build from the back great thinking BR! "

"Brad Jones good but not great keeper, one of the most nicest guys ever played for us but falls short of the standard we need if we are to move forward. Mignolet is really class, not quite as good as Pepe but will be one day, hasn't reached his full potential, not by a long shot but ticks all the right boxes for sure. Pepe, Mignolet and that Reading keeper and we are sorted for goalies. "

"BR's January turn-around tactics/acquisitions warrants faith based on evidence. If Mignolet is BR's man and irrespective if Pepe wants to stay or go - then b-r-i-n-g i-t o-n Mignolet!! "

15th Jun 2013 23:26
"If Mignolet does come we are on the right path to go for the League this season. Every top Team needs two quality goalkeepers to keep each other on their toes. Without competion for every place players have a tendency to get lax and make silly mistakes."
