Most Liverpool fans can forgive a player for making a few mistakes here or there, but when it comes Loris Karius, the German has reached the point of no return. The 25-year-old shot-stopper has been at Anfield for two seasons and has made error after error, with the worst of the lot coming in the club’s biggest game for 12 years.
Oh dear. If he can’t handle Tranmere fans winding him up, I’m not looking forward to the PL https://t.co/yqxKvCJtb5

No Tranmere away in a pre-season friendly last night, but in Kiev against Real Madrid in the Champions League final. The German effectively threw the ball into his own net twice and will never truly be forgiven by any Liverpool fans. The fans have only just started to get over calamity Karius’ mistakes when he made yet another blunder last night against Tranmere, just to remind the Kopites what they’ve been missing.
This summer has been one where most Liverpool fans have spent their time on Twitter, urging their club to sign one of either Jan Oblak or Alisson Becker. However, there’s now less than a month remaining in the transfer window and the fans are still stuck with Karius and none of them are optimistic ahead of the new season with him between the sticks. In a way, some fans are sympathetic with the goalkeeper as the boo-boys seemed to really affect his game, although it’s a valid point that if he can’t handle Tranmere fans then he’ll have no chance in the Premier League.

How long must it go on. He’s had plenty of chances. He’s simply not good enough.

Klopp's biggest weakness. He's friends with the players and has problems letting them go.

That's it. He's dead. His confidence literally vanished. Hope he doesn't pull off a 'Torres at Chelsea' at the Prem

Hard to support him now after watching that.

He let one through his legs in the warm up against Chester. I didn’t think it could get any worse…

Karius my friend…. I’m sure that your time is now well and truly up! Surely Ward deserves a shot?

I've been saying this even before the UCL final mignolet is better than Karius, Karius failed the first time but Klopp defiantly brought him back but after that shamble of a display he shouldn't be considered again,not as a number 1 he lacks the quality and only makes basic saves

After reading a handful of Liverpool fans tweets, it’s clear to see what they’re all thinking as the Premier League season creeps closer.
