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?

If we can still do it then yeah definitely. 

 

George Sephton playing AC/DC before games is also fucking great.

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

    • Another piece of the Liverpool long-term future was locked away on Friday when central defender Joel Matip committed to the club for the long term.

      The future of the Cameroon defender has been one of much speculation in the past few months especially with a number of his teammates signing long term deals.

      Matip had always shown potential after signing from Schalke on a free transfer in the summer of 2016, but what he lacked was continuity after falling victim to a number of niggling injuries.

      Finally, things started to fall the way of the 28 year-old at the start of 2019 and he has not looked back since, combining with Virgil Van Dijk to arguably be the best central defensive pairing in Europe.

      Matip ended any doubt on his future yesterday when he signed on the dotted line and discussed his Liverpool journey to this point along with what he hopes to achieve in the future with the Official site.

      “ It’s a great feeling to be a longer part of the club. It’s really just a great feeling.

      “ It is an honour to be a part of the club. It makes me happy that people think I’ve done a good job and they want to keep me.

      Matip, who is likely to return to the starting lineup for the clash against Man United tomorrow said that it was a challenge to adapt to a new league, but he had plenty of teammates to assist him.

      “It is more physical in the Premier League and it is often quite quick – quicker than the Bundesliga, I would say. 

      " The individual quality you have to face from week to week here is really impressive, but my teammates are top and so we can play.

      “ It was the whole club; all of my teammates (who helped me)”

      “All of them were directly friendly and I had never a feeling that I was the new guy. They made me feel at home.

      Reflecting on the Champions League success of last season, the humble defender sai that it is a moment that he will never forget.

      “This is one of the dreams that every young footballer or young kid has, but normally you know it probably won’t come true. 

      “Now I am part of this club and we won the Champions League, that’s something nobody can ever take away from you. 

      Not one to be content with past glory,  Matip says he and the rest of the squad have the hunger to build on that success.

      “Of course. You don’t want it to be the end. 

      “We have a young and talented team and I think every one of us is hungry.   "Now we’ve seen how it is to win something and we want to have that feeling again.

      “Sometimes you need a little bit of luck and a lot of work to have this success.   "We’ve had it now, but we are focused to repeat it and repeat it.  
      Matip knows full well how hard it is to earn a spot in the starting 11 and now he has that in his grasp, he is not looking to give it up in a hurry.

      However, he knows that there is still room for improvement in his overall game.

      “ It is always good if you play. I had some problems with injuries, but this belongs to a player’s life.   "I hope that I am getting better and better, that’s my only target.

      “As a centre-back you maybe need some more time to learn. 

      “I have had now enough time to learn, but I still can learn – I want to improve, even when I am 30 or something like this. I always want to improve, I always want to learn. 

      “It is the only way it works – if you want to get better, you have to learn.

      Matip says that his Centre Back partner in Van Dijk is the consummate professional who makes everyone in the squad a better player.

      “He is a complete centre-back – strong at the back and also in attack, at every set-piece he is a threat for every team and everybody is looking to him. 

      “He is helping his teammates, it doesn’t matter if you’re a midfielder, or me or the left-back, he makes everybody better. 

      “That’s a great help for the team and every teammate.

      In keeping with the hard working ethos of Matip, he is just going to keep doing his job for the next few seasons and the end result will look after themselves.

      “You never know how it will end, you just have to work hard and do the best you can do. Then we will see.”
