Bring back the red onion bags?

Recommended Posts

When Rogers arrived I really liked the red nets. They looked great with the fans behind them.

Not sure if it was something to do with the Fa but they changed back to white again. 

I'd love to see them back again,what do you think?

Yep.

Jürgen Klopp and his backroom team asked ground staff to change them from red to white in order to make them more visible in the players’ peripheral vision - hopefully leading to more goals being scored by the home side.
 

With the majority of fans behind both goals wearing red, it was felt the previous coloured netting wasn’t as striking to the eye as white while in the thick of the action on the pitch.

Heard that myself. Surely they know where the goal is now,between the white sticks.

To my eye it makes the actual posts stand out more, which I would assume creates a smaller and more accurate target to aim for. 

 

Plus we didn't exactly have a shortage of goals in 2013/14.

 

I say bring them back.

Id get rid of nets all together and nobody is allowed to pass the ball back to the keeper he has to wade through the crowd to get it back or argue with the person who struck the ball and tell them they're getting it this time as he's sick of getting it.

 

Or make them tartan.

I get the nostalgia and that but for me white is best.

 

I struggled at times with the red nets in same way was claimed players did.

 

This may well be down to my eyes getting worse now i am an old bastard, but i am a selfish old bastard so white it is for me.

Maybe the problem was you shooting at the goal during games and just getting in the way
