Today’s fluff is feeling slightly overshadowed
Once, after his spectacles were knocked off and broken during boisterous goalscoring celebrations by Liverpool at Norwich, Jürgen Klopp was moved to note: “I have a second pair but I couldn’t find them. It’s hard to find glasses without glasses.” The Mill doesn’t know what has happened to Klopp’s eyewear this week but there are extraordinary reports that he is having trouble finding a better goalkeeper than Loris Karius or Simon Mignolet. That has been interpreted as a slight on traffic cones, not to mention members of the scarecrow community, but Klopp is unrepentant and for a while bystanders were worried that if Liverpool couldn’t work out deals for Alisson or Jan Oblak, their manager would be happy to start next season with Karius or Mignolet between the sticks. Those fears have been allayed, however, by rumblings that Liverpool have started sniffing around the Lazio keeper Thomas Strakosha.
