      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

      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?

      Still a much better keeper than Adrian.

      Dread to think of our present status if Karius was still between the sticks.

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