Liverpool defensive record in PL since 4-1 defeat to Tottenham in October 2017

Liverpool defensive record in PL since 4-1 defeat to Tottenham in October 2017

So according to the stats Karius has been saving their asses and now is being exiled to Besiktas. Nice

yup exactly, karius has been responsible for being lowest in shots on target faced and 2nd best on shots faced

Not sure Karius was vital at all tbh. It was more down to Klopp's tactical change and Robertson being class. Karius still looked shaky even before the final.

The look on Klopps face; "Ha didnt expect that from us, huh"

It's on, Tebas. Bring some popcorn.

edit. for some context, Real Madrid-Getafe started at 22.15 and ended some minutes past midnight. On a Sunday.

edit2. AS just published the english version of the article

They say it's because of the heat, but considering one of last year's clasicos, the first one, was played at 13:00 to appease viewers from China iirc, I'm not buying that.

e: 16:00 to 13:00

Good on them. I get that you want to expand the La Liga brand but asking fans to leave the stadium after midnight on a Sunday is crazy

Haha get fucked Tebas.

He's right. If we hadn't botched 2 easy chances, Chelsea would have had to fight for a point against us. Emery is doing great work so far against one of the toughest 2 week stretches possible. Next 8 games are all winnable let's judge after that.

As did Tony Adams, Mr Arsenal himself

Big Fat Sam did. And some other "fans".

I've not seen anyone criticise him. Just loads of people making out that people have criticised him.

Everyone knows it's going to take time. He's played the best team in the country at home and one of the best teams in the country away.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek told to stay at Chelsea and fight for his place by Sarri and the club

He really needs to move on, he's got talent but as to often happens, the comfort zone of the big club reserves on a big contract seems too appealing.

To put things into perspective, him and Alli came through the same England youth side. Alli started more games last season alone than RLC has in his career.

He’s just not good enough to hold down a place in their first team, should have moved on by now.

apart from the fact Barkely has been much better at the CM role required by Sarri.

ah, of course because we should be judging Sarri on past managers for......

I declare Emourinho the greatest satirical creation of the last 5 years

I hope he keeps doing emo Mourinho, makes me laugh every time.

imported timber from Holland

Vincent Janssen

I laughed

When Aubameyang skied that chance in the first half it was like Emery was trying to outclap all the groans and jeers in the stadium

Appie Nouri, the Ajax player previously in a coma, wakes up

Appie Nouri, the Ajax player previously in a coma, wakes up

Some wonderful news coming out of Amsterdam this morning. Appie Nouri, the Ajax midfielder who collapsed and fell into a coma just over a year ago has woken up and recognised and communicated with his loved ones

Absolutely mad, complete miracle whatever level that is on, he really should be completely gone after what happened. Praying he manages to get a decent quality of life back.

Its better than nothing. Was a big chance he would be completly unresponsive

Although this is good, the tweet is quite misleading. He can respond to simple questions like 'open your mouth' by opening his mouth.

He is still in a coma though.. He "communicates" with his eyebrows, and opening his mouth.

WE ACTUALLY SIGNED A DEFENDER

You didn't fuck up, you got to enjoy him for a couple of seasons and didn't offer anywhere near enough money for him.

Lopes, Umtiti, Tolisso, Gonalons, Diakhaby, Ferri.

Noooooooooooooooo we fucked up

Better spend MILLIONS on Belhanda and Feghouli, just to wish to offload them a year later. Why can't we spend money fucking wisely.

Ffs.

We lost our child. Our child named Denayer

Appie Nouri, the Ajax player who has been in a coma for over a year, has woken up and started to ...

I read a news article about this a couple of days ago. I think "communicate" means he can open his mouth when they tell him to, and raise his eyebrows.

Progress is good, but he still has a long road ahead of him.

With communication they mean that he can respond to questions as "can you raise your eyebrows?" and such. He can't talk (yet) unfortunately.

Being able to do that is incredible though considering he was supposed to be completely brain dead. It shows that he's at least able to understand what's going on around him at some level, and being able to respond in that way is fantastic.

Here is the full interview with his family for who wants to see it

Yes, this title is a bit overstated. AFAIK his brother never said he's 'woken up', his conciousness has been a bit better since december but there has no real 'waking up' point. In the Netherlands most headlines were "Some communications are now possible with Nouri".

He gets out of bed at times to sit in a wheelchair. It's unclear wether how much of that he does himself. His brother said his neurological state is slowwwwwly improving but his physical shape is very meh.

His family is super involved, a family member is with him 24/7. His brothers have stopped playing football to take care of him. His dad is such a sweet guy, it's heartbreaking to see.
