And then there’s 50 cap Randolph who’s experience is unparalleled. So we’re already down to 9th there and we haven’t even touched Christy Pym or Premier League back up and experienced international Rob Elliott
    I can’t argue with that tbh.

    .................Travers
    Talbot Bazunu Westwood O'Leary
    ....McDermott Randolph Pym
    O'Hara...............................Maher
    .................Kelleher

    I'd be happy enough heading to the Nations League with that. Stick John O'Shea on the bench to cover them all.

    I must say as I seen him start for one of the top couple of teams in the world in a cup final at Wembley I allowed myself to get carried away and think “how lucky we are to have such a good 7th choice keeper”.

    Surely we can all agree how satisfying it was to see Kepa utterly trash his (self-declared?) reputation for being a shoot out specialist? What he did in 2019 was pathetic.

    This times 1000. I enjoyed that as much as Kelleher's moment in the sun.

    Putting my helmet on here(!) but I still think some of the reaction I've seen to Kelleher's exploits yesterday has been OTT (not here I might add) so just dampening things down a little: I think he had a fine game and held his nerve well when he needed to. Not saving any of the pens that were on target was a bit disappointing but they were all good pens.

    Nit picking - but just being objective - the two big saves were straight at him but I think good keepers (and I'd single out Alisson here who I think sometimes attracts some OTT accolodes), have a great habit of the ball hitting them.

    I remember taking a non-football supporting pal to a late-career Paul McGrath game at Lansdsowne and McGrath did nothing particularly skillful that stood out. My pal said "he's not very mobile and the ball just keeps hitting him." I said that's why he's still so good.

    Overall I think it's really clear now though that we have a proper grown up keeper who can handle big time football and big matches against really good teams. The little boy finding his feet in previous season's Carabou Cup games has matured. Good work by Liverpool.

    I know it was Tuchel who made some claim about Kepa being the best penalty stopper at Chelsea, was that it?
    In a vain attempt to break the hoodoo didn't the Netherlands substitute their goalie before a WC finals penalty shoot out?

    Caoimhin received royal praise in the Iceland sporting press, I can't remember ever seeing an Irish player highlighted in such manner since Keane for Man U.

    How come Caoimhin is so big in Iceland ? ?

    In the broadcasting on Sunday on espn Argentina the narrator said that Kelleher used to play as number 9, and he still does when playing kickabout in training for Liverpool, is that really accurate?

    Yes. He converted in his early teens, I think.
    Just accept it: 2022 is going to suck.

    Define need. Do you mean if he's not playing regularly in The Championship or League 1 then he won't be able to deal with the pressure of a big high pressure game. Well that's clearly not true. Agree, it would be better if he was playing more regularly, but he's still clearly a very talented goalkeeper who is perfectly capable of doing a job for us in international games.

    I'd be happy enough heading to the Nations League with that. Stick John O'Shea on the bench to cover them all.
    Missed out Jack Bonham as well. Starting for Stoke tonight.

    So no need for O'Shea.
