Bernd Leno (19)


#682

@Calum is right, from what I remember he always rated Ospina


#683

Don’t mind Leno personally. Was solid today. Score could’ve been worse but he was reliable when needed.


#684

Not that I’m blaming him for not saving the pens, but didn’t actually have a great record in Germany at saving them ?


#685

It’s the Cech effect.


#686

Passing accuracy:

(89.7%) Alisson
(62.5%) Leno

:thinking:


#687

That long?


#688

That situation shows the difference between us and Liverpool.
They had a GK that made a mistake and was cleared out straight away to replaced by a far better player.

If that was us, we would have kept him for several seasons, watch him keep repeating the same mistakes, and then bought someone who was at the same level.


#689

They’ve had Mignolet in goal from 2013 before that so it was 5 years they had shit goakeepers before they got Alisson


#690

Yeah, to suggest Liverpool rectified their keeping situation straight away is a massive leap


#691

Klopp wasn’t there when they bought Mignolet.

To be fair. we haven’t bought a decent GK since we moved to the Emirates, unless you include Cech for his first season with us.


#692

But he was still his number 1 gk untill they bought Allison. Karius came in at the second half of last season only


#693

If Liverpool would have lost to Madrid by a couple of standard goals, be interesting to know if theyd have gone for another keeper.


#694

I haven’t got any confidence in this dude when it comes to handling opposition crosses or catching a ball


#695

Should have just stopped the sentence there…


#696

he has made some good saves today, good shot stopper but needs to work on crosses.


#697

Made some good saves today but I think it’s easier at times to do it when you’re down and know you’re going to lose the game.

I can recall many average keepers having good games vs us at Highbury etc back when we were a powerhouse competing for titles.


#698

Would’ve lost at least 5-1 if we didn’t have Leno


#699

Maybe it was an impulse post during the game, so will need to revisit my point with a clear head but I still feel the same way right now.


#700

He’s not a standout keeper in any particular skill. His distribution in particular is laughable. However he kept the score down from the standard 5-1, 6-1 etc that this was heading for as soon as they got their 2nd, so I’ll credit him for that


#701

Thought he was very good today and brave at times too.
