From what I've seen the only thing he does better than Mignolet is his distribution. That being said I can't recall any games this year where Karius has actually had much to do.What are we missing? Karius is awful with the ball at his feet, he’s a shady shot stopper, and it’s clear his defense has no confidence in him. What the fuck?
Agree completely. That being said Mignolet makes his own share of mistakes. They need a new keeper.Look, stop with the near post stuff. Goalkeepers are not trained to “never get beaten near post.” That is a media fabrication. Goalkeepers are trained to not get beaten, period. Top level strikers will punish your far post if you cheat near. You play the angles.
Karius cheated. He started reacting away from the shot. He lost. Badly. Mignolet doesn’t let that in.
Both absolutely should have been stopped. Coincidentally, Ederson did cheat near post and Ox took a fairly shitty shot at the far post. It wasn’t even close to a precision strike and beat him anyway.I thought both goals, while very good shots, could/should have been stopped.
Fun half of football.
