    Besiktas and myself have given up on Loris Karius since there's nothing to follow anymore.

    Time to bring on the Bernd Leno discussion, Arsenal fans are now calling him "the brick wall".

    And I thought brick is a not so nice term in English xD Says a lot about Karius if Leno feels like a super talent for teammates and fans.

    In German a Torhüter can be a "Bank" or "Katze". As in secure like a bank or having catching reflexes as a cat. Also: Krake(octopus), Panther(panther), Langer(long one) or Fliegenfänger(fly catcher)

    Thank goodness it's still within 30 mins so I can change the thread title to "die Fliegenfänger".

    Leno is the anti-Karius

    Leno has only recently broken into the Arse starting XI

    He made some blunders vs Liverpool

    early days

    Leno is showing gradual signs of improvements. I'd consider him Germany's 3rd choice keeper. Possibly 2nd if we work on phasing out Neuer.

    I'm wondering why he'd deserve to be called Fliegenfänger while at the same time receiving praise here. I mean, you guys know that it's not a flattering term for a goalie, right?

    Damn I was duped. Possibly change it back to Backsteinmauer or standby until a better title idea comes to mind...

    Not the sharpest of openings for Leno, but he along with the rest of Arsenal came back strong afterwards to beat Tottenham 4-2 in the North London derby

    He seems quite prone to errors

    Leno and Arsenal lacklustre again as they drop points in the 1-1 tie against East Sussex giants Brighton & Hove Albion

    A very dodgy keeper in my opinion, doesn't install any kind of confidence in the defence with his constant poor decisions making

    not watching since I don't really care about EPL but Liverpool are trashing Arsenal 4-1 after just the 1st half.......

    wonder if Leno made any blunders???

    feels like German GKs aren't doing that well in EPL these days, between Zieler, Leno and Karius. All looks bad.

    German GK tend to do better in Germany or Spain.

    I'd say Arsenal's shambolic defending are more at fault today.

    Liverpool's first goal was the defenders unable to clear the ball, one defender kicks its and ricochets onto another defender which Firmino then picks it up from there.

    Second goal, Mustafi and Sokratis both unable to stop Firmino who just dribbled it through on goal.

    Fourth goal was a penalty, Sokratis takes down Salah in the box who then converts it
