So, if Reina is going to go as even The Mirror is suggesting now, be it Arsenal or Manchester United, who is coming in to replace him?
As I outlined in the previous Reina piece, Chris Kirkland! Ok, so I wasn’t being serious but how good would it be for the injury prone 29 year old to return to Anfield!
Asmir Begovic. The 23-year old has recovered from being sidelined for outlandish ‘I want out’ behaviour to dislodge Thomas Sorensen in the Stoke goal. Not a bad job when you consider that most Stoke fans think the most important aspect to their 1st year survival was Scott Carson turning them down and making Pulis get Sorensen.
Kieran Westwood or Alex Smithies, probably the two best goalkeepers outside the Premiership. 26-year old Westwood needs to make the step up now in order to solidify his position as the guy to succeed Shay Given to the Irish goalkeeping throne. Meanwhile, at 20, Smithies is getting rave reviews at Huddersfield and the Yorkshireman would fit perfectly with the ‘re-building phase’ that Liverpool have to go through right now.
Robert Green, The guy is 30, needs to resurrect his career quickly and won’t do that in the Championship with West Ham. Although, with howlers like the USA game and the Luton one (check youtube), maybe he’d be better suited at Arsenal!
Brad Jones, maybe they have already replaced Reina before he’s even left. The 28-year old certainly has shown talent in his injury blighted career. Or maybe Liverpool are just too cheap to go out and get somebody else.
Who do you Kopites want to see in goal?
