      What first choice keeper do you reckon we can buy then to sit on the bench and play back up to Ali?

      I'd like to order a hot iced coffee please. ;D
      Ok! I get your point. That's the wonder of the English language.

      Except it was this season and having a crappy one knocked us out of FA cup and CL.

      The keeper who played contributed to winning the League.

      hmm, yes but not really, if you remember in the games where we has Adrian as GK our defence was far from good, I think we conceded goals in all those games, the difference when Allison came back in was huge, the defence was instantly more solid and we started racking up clean sheets again.

      Was thinking back and Adrian wasn’t exactly much good in that early season run of games. His first game vs Norwich he dived for the ball once it had already gone past him (like vs Atletico) and then this howler that gifted Ings a goal is another example of his inability to kick the ball.

      Karius’ attempt to kick the ball and we conceded a corner from it

      https://mobile.twitter.com/Ifcdan/status/1251081255728427008


      Neither of them seem able to kick a ball properly, neither can catch, both are slow to react and they both parry the ball straight back into the danger area. The only difference between the two is that because Adrian didn’t make his mistakes in the CL final, some people seem intent on giving him a free pass despite mistake after mistake after mistake and to be honest, I’d say he’s made more mistakes than what Karius made in his final season as number 1 for us. To Karius’ credit, he was pretty solid in the run to the Champions League final and I think he kept the most clean sheets in the tournament?

      I don’t think we’d have been 25 points clear with either of them spending the season there.

      Hard to believe he's still on the books.
      Only remembered him after seeing the programme on the BBC the other nite.
      Not a good memory unfortunately.
      Thought I heard Montpellier were interested but not sure how likely that is.
      Its a tough business, no guarantee that he'll get any suitors..

      I still think overall he's a better goalkeeper than Adrian and those mistakes in the final just totally ruined him.

      His transfer value would be much higher than Adrian's though so for that reason alone I'd be looking to move him on and keep Adrian while the younger keepers develop a bit more.

      Have to say am personally not a fan, and don't think Adrian has let us down when give the nod.
      Hope your right and his transfer value is good, be nice if someone came in with a few bob so we can part ways and he can try move past it.

      I doubt his transfer value is all that high. That Turkish club had basically agreed to buy him but after seeing him up close for two seasons, pretty much begged off. It's a tough business as bmck says, but it's hard to think he will ever get to be a top goalkeeper. I'd say there's a greater value for us in having him gone permanently than in getting a slightly higher price tag.

      Just thinking about the first mistake with throwing the ball off Benzema....*shudder*

      As an all round goalkeeper then Adrian is better, but that is in large part because Karius's concentration is poor and confidence is shot. Technically I'd say Karius is better. I'm hoping one of these young keepers can step up this year as I am not a big fan of Adrian after the Chelsea and Ateltico games.

      This lad needs to work on his concentration levels above anything else.

      Fine shot stopper, but its like hes better at reaction saves, see it late hell save it. But if he knows a shots coming before it comes irs like his brain switches off and thats where his errors come from.

      Not a bad keeper if you break it down but poor concentration....Hope he gets a good move to sort his career out. An awful shame for any players career to be determined by 1 game really

      Adrian has let us down plenty with mistakes. The one against Atletico was particularly infuriating because we were deep in extra time, already up 2-0 to go through to the next round and he gives the ball straight back to an Atletico player.

      and that was the same week as he fu**ed up against Chelsea in the FA Cup, hell of a week for Allison to be injured!

      Adrian may have played the FA Cup no matter what, but Alisson would have def been in the CL game. That mistake by Adrian against Atletico still bothers me because it was so easy to avoid and other than Bayern the rest of the teams looked so beatable and with the league locked up we could have just focused on the CL.

      That game bugs me but I honestly don't think we would have beaten Bayern, it was their year last year.

      Loaned to the Bundesliga side Union Berlin

      “I'm looking forward to my new opportunity in Berlin and I’m happy to be playing in the Bundesliga again. Union is a special club, one that has earned a great deal of respect, not just by promotion to the Bundesliga. I would like to play my part in this positive development and help to achieve the great goal of staying in the Bundesliga," said Loris Karius after his signature.   

      "The signing of Loris Karius means we have secured a goalkeeper with great national and international experience.

      I make it that his 5 year deal with us expires in May 2021.
      So looks like he's leaving us on a free, least it was only a 5 mill outlay.
      Hope he gets things properly back on track at some stage.
