Rumor has it that he wants to leave Spain because he’s miffed that he had to pay nearly 20 million in back taxes he defrauded Spain out of to avoid a lengthy prison sentence. Because the Spanish tax authority raided his yacht and because club president didn’t defend him against the Spanish authorities.

Holy shit was that an amazingly horrible fucking game. FUCK SERGIO RAMOS. FUCK HIM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HARD. That diving, whining piss baby has the gall to complain about niggling fouls on him after the goddamn rugby tackle he does on Salah to take him out of the game. And SUPER FUCK those idiot refs who continually just let shit go for Real Madrid.

And I just read Ronaldo's comments. Fuck that whiny diving twatty little fucking cunt. Was he even playing today?

First time in ages I watched anything to do with soccer and I picked this?  This is supposedly the best soccer has to offer?  Apart from the insane bicycle kick goal, this game was dog shit.

This would have been the best soccer has to offer if Sergio Ramos wasn't a dirty shitgibbon. Mo Salah is one of the most exciting players on the planet and when he, Mane and Firmino are clicking, they are electric to watch. When refs don't protect those guys from constant, intentional fouls, there is no greater 3-man front line available, IMO.

Also, Loris Karius is shit. Liverpool fans have been asking "Do we need to buy a new goalkeeper in the summer?" That question has now been answered with an emphatic "OH HELL YES." He had gotten better lately but neither he nor his backup (who used to be #1) Simon Mignolet are Champions League caliber keepers. My god, that was just fucking horrible.

Yeah, that goalkeeper was awful.  Nothing he could have done for the bicycle kick goal, but the other two were all on him.  He literally cost them the game.

Mignolet is orders of magnitude worse than Karius. Also Karius has played an exceptional season and PL campaign up to his two mistakes. He kept more clean sheets in the CL than any other GK up to the final. He's not bad. Maybe not CL level but not bad either
Also Klopp has a new GK on his list of purchases for next season even before the CL final.

Yeah, I'm not saying Karius has been bad because he certainly got better. But he's like Everton level of good, not for a team that wants to win the Prem and/or the CL. And frankly, you just can't recover from the kinds of huge mental errors he made in this game. I'd actually be happier with Danny Ward in goal than him or Mignolet. At least Ward has youth and inexperience as an excuse. Neither Karius or Mignolet can do that with the amount of experience they have. They both just make absolute boneheaded decisions at the worst times.

A follow up to Karius and the CL final

According to his post game medical Karius had 26 of 30 indicators pointing to a concussion.
https://www.massgeneral.org/News/newsarticle.aspx?id=6792

So Ramos‘ elbow to the head gave Karius a concussion which very likely contributed to his mistakes following the incident.

From the official statement: „After carefully reviewing game film and integrating a detailed history – including his reported present and immediate post-contact subjective symptoms – physical examination and objective metrics, we have concluded that Mr. Karius sustained a concussion during the match May 26, 2018.
At the time of our evaluation, Mr. Karius’s principal residual symptoms and objective signs suggested that visual spatial dysfunction existed and likely occurred immediately following the event. Additional symptomatic and objectively noted areas of dysfunction also persisted. It could be possible that such deficits would affect performance.“

So Sergio Ramos MVP of the match for Real Madrid.

I mean, the blunders he made could certainly be due to a concussion - they were certainly braindead enough.

I still want Liverpool to get another keeper because it's not like that was the first time he made a series of absolute howlers.

Holds about as much water as Trumps medical statement. They sent Karius over so they could fudge a medical report using one of their own doctors. No good brain injury doctors in England? Oh wait Karius was on holiday and got a migraine. Yeh right.

The owners of Liverpool also own the Boston Red Sox, and there have been multiple cases of them sending their injured players over to Massachusetts for special treatment, especially Daniel Sturridge. It's not that fucking strange, you yobbo.

Well that's in line with my point, and why I think it lacks credibility - it's their own bloody doctor. I'm not buying it. To boot, wasn't the elbow after the first goal? I think someone needs to check that.

It's not like Liverpool fans or the team are searching for an excuse of why they lost - losing Salah to that fucking ridiculous tackle was probably enough to doom us. And Liverpool fans were not inclined to give Karius a lot of room for error despite his improved form over the last few months. The only reason to "fake" this would be as cover for not spending on a keeper this summer and I don't think Klopp is pigheaded enough to think that even a non-concussed Karius is better than someone like Oblak or Allison.

Well fake would be a bit harsh he did get a bit of a whack, fudging it a fair bit though. I doubt it was a serious concussion anymore than getting the ball in the head, and nothing we don't see every other odd game. To release a statement about it seven days later seems like there's an agenda.

Look, they won't be selling Karius this summer no matter who they bring in, IMO. His value, while it might have been a little higher with his recent run of form, was still not likely to be very high. They only paid 4 million quid for him to begin with, and even at his best, he's never covered himself in glory. The only reason his value would have improved is the natural inflation of the market. They'd get more from selling Mignolet, who has sat on the bench for the past 6 months, than they would Karius even though he started the last half of the season. Mignolet is on record as saying he is not there to be #2 so he's gone. Even if you pay big bucks for a keeper this summer, you keep Karius because he's relatively cheap and your next two options are Danny Ward (who does look good but has almost zero Prem experience) and another young guy they are high on but who also have little experience. Plus, Karius was Klopp's (bargain) choice, not Mignolet, so all signs point to Karius staying no matter what happened in the UCL final.

Liverpool fans don't want either of them, but if they are like me, they know this equation. It ain't hard. Mignolet is gone, Karius is staying. The only benefit to give him an excuse for such a series of howlers is to keep the fans off his back when he does play - and frankly, there ain't nothing anyone can do to make that happen. He and Mignolet both are on the fans' shit list and aren't getting off without MAJOR effort, by which I mean, be an instrumental part of bringing home the UCL or the Prem trophy.

Good points and yeh I'm clutching at straws as to the why they would release it, but it certainly wasn't for the benefit of mankind and just seems pretty much a PR stunt.  Now you have Courtois and Toni Kroos both questioning it's viability, Courtois is a knobhead though.

Releasing injury news on players isn't that odd. I think it's more odd that every dickhead who wasn't even involved in the game like Courtois would have anything much to say about it.

Ramos can choke on all the dicks, everywhere, for all time. He is a cunt of the highest order.

First time I've ever seen a team release a post hoc concussion report on a player who got a bit of a whack. Eventually every time someone heads the ball they'll start releasing them to explain why they got a 5 out of ten instead of 7  why so serious?

It's taking the piss and I'm not buying it, and Ramos is right that little pussy Salah should have got his injection and played on with his bust arm.

Piss off with that bullshit. Ramos tackled him like it was a rubgy pitch and Salah did try to play through the pain. Ramos needs to learn what sport he's playing or just, you know, stop being a whiny little bitch every time the ref calls him on a foul, or stop acting like he's been assaulted whenever someone gives him a slight nudge. He is a dirty tackler, almost as bad as his former teammate Pepe. At least Pepe had the balls to admit he was knocking motherfuckers around.
