All teams need to be continually improved; if a better keeper than Karius can be obtained we must go for it.

Karius hasn’t deliberately made mistakes and I’m sure he is heartbroken over his last few performances; he also played very well for large portions of the season.

I’m not having a go at the bloke but we cannot not look to improve purely to back one player.

Very good point Si.
But if you take players as individuals then couldn't every player in our team be improved on? Should we invest in a whole new first 11?
Klopp treats players as humans, if he sees that Karius is suffering and the team is also suffering as a result he'll withdraw him from the firing line.
If that happens, I'd like to see Ward's loyalty rewarded with a run between the sticks.

Hi Flash,

Yes that is indeed what I meant.

If we can get any player that improves the 1st 11 (within budget etc) then we should.

That in turn improves the bench and squad as a whole.

It’s then up to the existing players to raise their games to stay in the side.

Coaching alone only gets you so far, competition is vital; then no one can rest on their laurels.

“Last few performances”? Sorry but that’s tripe. We are taking him about one poor performance, two instances to be precise, while he was suffering concussion. I can’t get my head around what is wrong with people that they always want a magic wand solution. Support Karius, he’s a very good young keeper. What happened to YNWA?

{Ed001's Note - could you imagine the meltdowns if Brucie was the keeper? He was always making silly errors.}
