Tommy Seebach’s mustache
- Apr 15, 2006
I admittedly didn’t see him in Germany, but I’m not sure I’d describe his time at Liverpool as class. He was brought in to upgrade Mignolet’s ball playing ability (of which Migs had none), but never had the shot stopping prowess. I think we got exactly that- an upgrade with the feet and downgrade with the gloves. He didn’t have the protection of the later bulletproof spine and was left exposed.Very easy to root for the Karius redemption narrative here. Always thought he was class and too easy for his critics to forget how good he was befor his (admittedly horrible) self destruction.
Speaking for myself, knowing how badly his skull got rattled I have little angst toward him for the UCL final meltdown. I just don’t think he was a great keeper to begin with.
