      He carves a lot of chances for himself. He has a lot of half chances. Probably more than other strikers. You can view it as bad that those are "missed" (a lot get saved by the keeper) Or you can view it as a good sign that he creates chances for himself and gets himself in positions to even get those chances.

      It really depends on what narrative you want to push of believe. Life..and football isn't black and white. There are nuances. And the media decides how they want you to view things.

      They did not spend a single minute on the multiple big chances Alvarez missed yesterday. Alvarez has 6 goals and 6 assists this season. I'll leave it there.
      Im in no way having a pop here, but your post is typical of many on here regarding Nunez. There is inherent in your (and others) comments some kind of defence of young Darwin, but he doesn't need defending, because no one is attacking him. Every positive you say of him is true and factual. But there is one specific, single and isolated question: Why isn't he scoring more of the "easy" chances?....Please don't say because there's a goalkeeper...we're talking about the misses, not the saves....they're not the same thing.
      We're not comparing him to anyone else, frankly I don't give a toss whether the media go on about Alvarez's misses or not.(BTW They did mention it)

      Can you give examples of said easy chances?

      Are these chances any easier than what other players miss? I am talking about other players because players miss chances. That is part of football you don't score every single chance.  I AM TALKING ABOUT THE MEDIA. Because the media creates narratives, and people just eat it up without truly examining what is happening. IT'S NOT EVEN ABOUT DARWIN IN PARTICULAR.

      Kyle Walker and Trippier got exposed BADLY defensively yesterday and we are not getting a got damn week long postmortem from the media about it like we would if it was Trent.

      YOU may not be talking about the media but I AM.

      Examples: I'm guessing there's a compendium of them on YouTube.
      I know that all footballers will miss easy chances, as you correctly say it's a part of football. My whole question is a narrow one. Not does he miss easy chances....but does he miss more than he should? I'm not taking up any media driven narrative, I'm framing the question as a Liverpool supporter using my own eyes, and witnessing it for myself.
      Your point about Walker and Trippier doesn't stand up to scrutiny, in the broadcasts I watched both players were criticised, perhaps you missed it. Again this idea that the media/press is anti LFC is both baseless and tiresome. It smacks of some kind of inverted snobbery, almost arrogance. What's so special about Liverpool Football Club for the whole of the UK media to conspire against it?....it's total nonsense. LFC is special and unique to us....no one else gives a sh*t.

      My brother in christ, Trippier has been sh*t all season. They spent like 2 mins in their mistakes nothing more. Trippier was seen arguing with fans, making excuses about injuries. Got exposed again and there is barely any coverage.

      https://twitter.com/FIVEUK/status/1723462086255157713

      Trent gets interrogated about bad form, every time he has a blinding game, they spend half the time telling the audience that hes not a good defender.

      If you can't see the difference you are blind and i can't help you.

      Sorry PG but that doesn't really qualify as what I would call peer reviewed evidence...Anyone can always find a snippet that supports their claim about anything....look at the number of people who have witnessed alien space craft....of which none have ever proven to be true.

      Anyway...we're unlikely to find agreement here. You are like everyone else free to believe what you like.  Up the Reds

      LMAO bro asking for peer reviewed evidence and a socio economic study for something i didn't even say.

      1. I'm not saying the media is specifically "biased against Liverpool" or whatever it is you think im saying.

      What i'm actually saying, the media (independent or mainstream) can create whatever narrative they want, based on whatever they choose to focus on and highlight. And people FULLY buy into it.

      This happen in politics, we see it every day with "culture war" topics, not just football.

      I gave other players as examples because they can choose to focus on them but they don't.  Trippier has been rubbish ALL SEASON. they choose to not focus on it.

      They told us Henderson was on 700k a week. it's a complete lie. He's on 160k a week. people to this day still say he's on 700k a week. Are they going to come out and correct it? Of course not.

      Bol*ocks Henderson is on 160k a week. He's on just shy of 700k a week there. As he told us ... 'securing my family's future'. If he was on 160k he'd be on similar or sightly less than he was at Liverpool.

      See this is a prime example. Facts don't matter over narrative to some people. You are unwilling to challenge your ideas because the narrative that was created is that he's gone only for the money (700k a week) and now everyone has a hard-on to point out his "hypocrisy" after he "went woke".

      His club isn't even state owned.

      No. He's earning 700k a week. And they're getting their funding don't you worry. And he is a f*cking hypocrite. Both facts. End of story.

      I've never seen a bunch of so called Liverpool fans. A club with our history, so blindly willing to accept the narrative the media sets forth without question. Just straight up REFUSING to believe the possibility that reports are incorrect. ;D Who woulda thunk it?

      The point i was making is that the media isn't always right or factually, they often set narratives, regardless of facts. And you are straight up refusing to question what u are being told. ;D.

      In fact, it feels like you'd rather believe the lie.

      One thing that is evident from the video and has been discussed at length on here before is how he's very much an instinctive finisher. A lot of his goals come from one, maximum two, touches.
