first_imgAlisson Becker went from hero to zero in the eyes of Liverpool fans after his extraordinary mistake gifted Leicester City a goal.The most expensive goalkeeper in history wowed Premier League fans with his impudent chip over Anthony Knockaert last week. Jesus Christ Alisson, that’s worse than Karius😂— Jay White (@jaywhitebcafc) September 1, 2018 Alisson you idiot! We didn’t pay £60m for you to dribble and turn in your area of expertise. You had one job and that was to clear it. #LEILIV— Jackson To (@jacksonto888) September 1, 2018 But he was brought crashing back down to earth after being caught in possession trying to dribble out from the back.After receiving a woeful back-pass from Virgil van Dijk, the former Roma shot-stopper shaped his body as if to clear the ball down the right-hand touchline.With Kelechi Iheanacho closing, the flamboyant keeper instead decided to whip out a conveniently timed Cruyff Turn on the byline so as to deceive the striker.But the Nigeria international read the attempted piece of skill and easily dispossessed the bewildered Alisson and squared the ball for Rachid Ghezzal to tap into a virtually empty net. So is Alisson also going to Turkey on loan?— Deji Faremi (@deejayfaremi) September 1, 2018 2 It mattered very little in the end as first half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino ensured Ghezzal’s strike was a mere consolation.As Ruud Gullit once infamously said: “A goalkeeper is a goalkeeper because he can’t play football.”While the £67million summer signing will surely bounce back from the mistake, several Liverpool fans were far to quick to chastise the 25-year-old.

As long as it stops him doing it ever again— Haydn (@haydnstpierre1) September 1, 2018 Does Alisson have a concussion🤔— SULTAN (@SultanBinKhalid) September 1, 2018 Awful by Alisson, only a matter of time till his over confidence let him down and here it is. Should have booted it for a throw. Very bad play, game on— Sean Williams (@seanwills11) September 1, 2018 Poor from Alisson, just kick the ball lad.— Jake (@Addonnn) September 1, 2018 Alisson wasn’t joking.— ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) September 1, 2018center_img Hahahahaha Alisson is a fraud #LeiLiv— This Charming Man (@LHS_TCM) September 1, 2018 Sooooo casual from VVD, far too sloppy and Alisson had his pants pulled down trying to be a superstar. Liverpool have paid the price for being complacent there— Duncan Wright (@dwright75) September 1, 2018 The Brazilian has been an otherwise brilliant signing Oh Alisson, Alisson #LEILIV— Susan Seddon 🚗🎶💕🐒 (@SuzeTwelve) September 1, 2018 Alisson has just caught the Karius virus 😂😂😂— Agostinho Sousa (@agostinhosousa7) September 1, 2018 Simon Mignolet to Alisson at full time— Taylor Budgell (@TaylorBudgell7) September 1, 2018 Thats way too cocky from Alisson— JulianLFC22 (@JulianLFC22) September 1, 2018 Alisson’s tekkers…— Soccer AM (@SoccerAM) September 1, 2018 Alisson was robbed in possession by Kelechi Iheanacho 2last_img read more

first_img Top Stories Indeed, Kolb is not the only new piece being integrated into the Cardinals way of life. However, fair or not, all eyes will be on the QB when the games start to count, with media and fans alike wondering if Arizona has solved their QB problem.Solving Arizona’s offense will make things much easier for the 27-year-old former Eagle.“Each club has access to every play that was run by every other club throughout the league,” Miller said, adding that there are no secrets. “Really it’s just learning a new language, if you will. It’s learning new verbiage, new terminology, getting used to those things.”Miller is confident his new passer will be ready by the time the Panthers come to University of Phoenix Stadium on September 11.“He’s making good progress now,” Miller said. “We’re not going to throw the entire playbook at him Week 1, we want to put a good plan together for Carolina, practice it and rep it, make sure he’s comfortable with it, make sure everyone’s comfortable with it.”Once Kolb is comfortable with the offense his job will be to make sure the Cardinals — and fans — are comfortable with him under center. Comments   Share   Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation At the very least, Kevin Kolb looked like an NFL quarterback in the preseason opener last Thursday.Completing 4 of 7 passes for 68 yards, Kolb found Larry Fitzgerald often enough to make you think he’s getting the hang of the offense.Still, there is a lot of work ahead of the signal caller if he is to be ready for the team’s Week 1 date with Carolina.“I think one of the biggest things is getting on the same page with all the other guys,” Cardinals quarterbacks coach Chris Miller said, mentioning Todd Heap, Jeff King and Ryan Williams. “We’ve got some new weapons, which is exciting.” What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ He’s off to a good start.last_img read more
