Didn't all the usual reliable faces say klopp was sticking with Karius about a week ago though?
Worrying if true
But this is what I mean mate
The whole 'club insiders' thing seems to have slowed to a halt over the last couple of years, none of them had a clue about Virgil or Fabinho before they were pretty much through the door
So my take on them now being used to peddle the story on first Karius being number 1 and bow Ward being given a shot at number 1 strikes me more of us using them to get stories out in the press that we aren't desperate for a keeper and we are relaxed and happy.
Basically to counter the constant talk from agents and clubs regarding other keepers in an attempt to take advantage of our 'desperate need' for a new number one
How many times have we read this summer Roma being mentioned in leaking prices for Alisson? Last week or so something was said along the lines of
£65m for Alisson? Liverpool can have him for that
So for me we are just killing the stories and the desperation in the press in order to not be taken to the cleaners on price and the club are using these 'trusted journos' to put that out there for them
It's all part of the negotiation game for me
I'm very relaxed, I believe we will defo bring a new keeper in, we just don't want the world to know our desperation... to feed off the Karius champions league final performance and roast us for cash
