Hi ed I don't know if your watching the Liverpool friendly but karius has had 2 big blunders again in a friendly with no pressure whatsoever on him.
Do you still think klopp will stick with him?
He looks a keeper completely shot of confidence and belief and I think for us to compete we really do need to give ward a chance or sign a new keeper .
What's everyone else's opinions?

{Ed002's Note - You don’t think death threats, unrelenting abuse and wishes of hate adds pressure?}

I say get of his back and support him.

{Ed025's Note - but how many chances do you give him tim?..

If De Gea would have been a January signing and they reached the Champions League final, he could very well have made the same mistakes. He was awful when they signed him. Look how that turned out.

{Ed025's Note - clutching at straws there EP mate..

Can anyone check if he still has concussion?

Joke. He hasn't got the mental capacity to be a goalkeeper at the top level. Bye Loris.

He needs to be out of the spotlight and we need to bring in a starting keeper. I’m all for supporting Karius long term and sincerely hope he goes on to great things given time, but there is no way we should be starting the season with him between the sticks given where his head is at right now, he’s completely shot of confidence.

It looks like Klopp has decided to stick with him.
I think it's a huge mistake, and whilst I don't have a problem criticising I have no desire whatsoever to abuse him. I haven't seen the game so in this case I can't criticise him.

6.) 10 Jul 2018
10 Jul 2018 21:23:16
Of course it does ed02, and it's disgusting but the fact is he is making more mistakes. Whether it's coz of confidence, ability, personal matters he is still under performing.

I like Karius. I thought he showed bottle apologising to the fans and I will back him if he is our number one. I think there is a top keeper in there.

But if he's not performing we need to look at our options. Maybe signing another keeper.

{Ed002's Note - Dont worry, the fans will drive him out.}

I'm not condoning any of that ed I'm just saying his confidence is completely gone and I don't think we can start the season with him between the sticks.
By all means keep him as backup and build his confidence up again but it would be crazy to start with him between the sticks.
If you were klopp can you honestly say you would start the season with him between the sticks?
I do feel sorry for the lad with the threats from scum but just feel none of the players can have confidence with him starting . it could be detrimental to our season.

{Ed002's Note - You need to remove the cause of the issue, the person who took him to the club and persists with him.}

He came out second half and was given a standing ovation by the liverpool fans behind his goal, good size crowd. Fully backed by the fans and publicly by the manager.

I'm not sure how else your meant to get behind him. He didn't make those mistakes on the back of any pressure. The second maybe because after his mistake the wahays came out every time he caught the ball or something but really it was his positioning and action for the second. He just cocked up the first. Was at the game and was right by him.

I just think. And do not shoot me. But a little voice is telling me, maybe he's not a good gk?

If we whacked vvd upfront and said back him, would that make him a talented striker?

God put me in goal and back me, I'll become a worldy overnight.

The same keeper ever1 was saying he was looking good then made mistakes got death threats fecking stupid so that's why i say get behind him,

Exactly ed025. We need to get real here. He isn't the answer never has been in my opinion same for ward and mignolet. Is the death threats taking things too far? absolutely. It's disgusting and vile from scum that claim to be fans but are just what I said scum. He is clearly stripped of whatever little confidence that he had and is only going to be a hindrance and a weak link that teams and fans are going to target week in week out. A top replacement is needed for me or we need to build a wall every game for karius too keep the ball out of the net.

{Ed025's Note - i feel for the guy IR but business is business mate..

I’d bring Mignolet back ahead of Karius at the minute.

He is absolutely awful. What a clown.

He hit his head getting off the coach. May have something to do with it?

He spilt a free kick allowing the onrushing player to score
no biggie, it happens sometimes
move on and let him have a career.

Did you get my reply ed? Basically just asking if you were klopp would you start the season with karius or get a new keeper?
I do support the lad . Keep him as backup and build his confidence up again.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp has already, yet again, spoken about the GKs.}

I am a Liverpool supporter first and foremost and then support the players that play for us individually.
Klopp is doing a brilliant job but perhaps he has a weak point in identifying a good goalkeeper or maybe he needs someone that would tell him a player has had enough chances.
Is there any new interest in any keepers in the last few days?
I personally like ward and always have . Wouldn't mind him being given a chance.

17.) 10 Jul 2018

I feel sorry for the rest of the team tbh.

I totally agree with people's comments about karius getting abuse and death threats also his family but I don't think klopp is doing karius any favours the guys confidence is totally shot he looks a nervous wreck and anxious witch is understandable after his recent mistakes I really do think we need to get a keeper in because in my opinion karius will cost us points.

19.) 10 Jul 2018
10 Jul 2018 21:56:38
The Tranmere fans gave karius some stick can just imagine old Trafford etc! No point us givin him stick it’s klopp who picks him at the end of a day! Like ed02 says send him a few more death threats he might leave! Was only a friendly but can see some fans frustration.

It’s hardly like the keepers we were scouting are any better, Cillessen and Navas are far worse by a mile.

21.) 10 Jul 2018
10 Jul 2018 22:07:27
I said after the CL we should allow him to leave/ loan back to Germany to rebuild his career. There is too much pressure on him in the premier league whether reds fans back him or not, the pressure comes from other sources.

Butland all of a sudden dosent seem so bad.

23.) 10 Jul 2018
10 Jul 2018 22:23:31
Well said, SGRed.

I believe we will sign a GK who will our new no.1. Now whether It'll be Alisson, Butland or someone else, for that we have to wait!

24.) 10 Jul 2018
10 Jul 2018 22:29:51
I do feel for the guy but like Ed25 said business is business and we should bring in a new keeper or push to sign one. Again these players might not be attainable but money talks and personally I would overspend on someone like Oblak/ Allison or of that quality, with there being a number of top keepers across Europe not just those two.

Just saw another video of Karius spilling the ball during practice. I think he lacks the fundamental goalkeeping skill of putting his body behind the ball. He's not letting his upper body help him when catching.
I think he needs to be allowed to go on loan or he should be sold. The problem is not just that fans of other clubs would try to rile him up. It's the fact that Liverpool fans would absolutely crucify him when he makes a mistake - whether it leads to a goal or not.

26.) 10 Jul 2018
10 Jul 2018 23:23:22
Edison. m. city
Loris. spurs.
De. gea. m. united.
Courteous. Chelsea.

Karius. Liverpool.

Need I say anymore we pay 75m for a centre back and we have a keeper behind him who can't even hold on to a ball klopp defended him gain tonight saying it hit his chest sorry not good enough.

27.) 11 Jul 2018

Look, it's hard in goal. Every action is scrutinised. If salah made 5 mistakes would you sell him?

If Robertson made 4 mistakes would you say sell him?

BTW, those players mentioned have made way more mistakes than the 9 I mentioned. Ease off the lad. He's jittery and needs our support. He was playing pretty well last season, getting better and better. I think we need someone, keep Karius as 2nd keeper, build his confidence, play him in league Cup. He is still young. There is a good keeper in there.

{Ed0333's Note - have you taken the week off work to post on the site Hendo?

Ed025. I feel for him too. He isn't purposely making mistakes and I'm sure he is a good lad deep down. He just isn't good enough and like any walk of life if your not good enough you need to be replaced. I can just see this becoming a big problem as the season goes on. Need to act now before any more damage is done. Ps hoping Everton have a good season too mate. Just not better than ours but who knows with karius in between the sticks.

{Ed025's Note - you cant have sentiment in football IR, look at pep who ditched 3 keepers within 12 months (hart being england No1 at the time)because they were just not good enough, if you want to win things then the manager has to be ruthless at times mate, im a massive klopp fan but he needs to sort this out asap because its a key position..

The problem in all of this is the goalkeeping coach in my opinion. Klopp and his staff have came in and things have improved outfield. Achterberg was kept on and the goalkeeping situation has not.
