What a great performance! Crucial saves at 1-0 and he then goes and sets up the winner - awesome!

Thought he had come in as back up to Nyland, but have been v impressed with his composure and experience so far. Gives the rest of the defence some confidence as well. We shouldnít underestimate his influence in the dressing room either
Yep I felt it was Nylandís shirt to lose, but the decision vindicated by distribution, quality saves so far and a wise experienced head marshalling from the back. Good stuff.

Very much seems to still have it, and loved his celebration on the winner. One of those no brainers that actually turns out to be a no brainer. Good stuff to all involved.

We should keep him for next season too. Really hope if he continues like this the club cna sort something with Milan.

Love his bald head and his leadership. Good at football too.

Clearly the manager /Club recognise the importance of a PL experience keeper in this team.

I feel some much more confident of us staying up now we have this guy. If we do stay up I'd definitely say he deserves a12 month contract at least, from what I've seen so far. He's far too good to be sitting on the bench. We just need Mings to make sure he doesn't lose his cool and get sent off at any point between now and the end of the season.

Love his body language, oozes confidence. A real presence.
Another massive save. Could turn  out to be very good business.

Who was it that said he was fat and out of shape? I said to a friend the other day that if I was in as good as shape as he is when Iím his age Iíd be delighted...then I had a shock when I realised that Iím actually older than Reina. How the fuck did that happen?!

I don't know how much football he has played lately and how match sharp he is but he has certainly impressed me so far.

Gives you an insight into why Liverpool fans are still so fond of him. Long may it continue.

I still find it hard to admit that I'm old enough to be most of our squad's dad.

Reina coming in just proves there is so much more to the keeper position than just shot stopping. Confidence and a cool head is crucial, it transfers through the whole team, giving every player a lift. Having someone between the sticks who knows what they're doing, been there done that etc. You need experience in a team and the keeper position is not a bad place to have it. I just hope he can keep it up and we push on now and get well out of that bottom 3. Just need West Ham to fail in their 2 games in hand and we might just pull it off.
