    Yup, I felt fine when concussed but eventually people realised I wasn't acting normally. Went to hospital. I remember nothing between bumping my head and the hospital. Apparently we went to a bar and I was dancing. Remember nothing of this to this day.

    I'm not doubting he had a concussion - in fact his mistakes were so bad it almost had to be something like that. What seems like 110% bollocks is this bit:

    If Liverpool were worried about his condition they'd have had the scan done a week ago. But even more if they were worried about some level of ongoing impairment, they'd have insisted he had the scans before going on a transatlantic fight, not after.

    This was discussed on 5 live - he had a pre arranged holiday to the Boston area (visiting family).
    And anyway; concussion can take days to fully take hold. Anyone effected by it can actually carry on functioning in a limited capacity while actually lacking consciousness - at least until the debilitating effects take hold - sensitivity to light, hearing ,balance, headaches etc.
    It's not a nice thing to have... similar to cerebral hypoxia.

    Severe debilitating effects can be gradual... less sever (eg distorted sight) can be immediate... the brain is complex... no brainer ;)

    ok it can take days before the full effects, but we're talking about minutes. Top end footballers are very good at writhing around to highlight fouls- yet Karius just got up. He complained for sure but he obviously didn't regard what happened as needing professional attention, nor did the ref who has pretty clear instructions about head injuries. So at the time it was considered minor by all concerned.

    Subsequently, Karius turns up in Boston on a family holiday and is then (and only then) sent to see a doctor for a diagnosis, where he's found to have concussion. Much of the diagnosis is based on "carefully reviewing game film". The doctors were Dr Ross Zafonte, of Spaulding hospital, where he just happens to be heavily involved in a prestige project sponsored by the Red Sox, owned by Fenway who just happen to own Liverpool, together with Dr. Lenore Herget who is a consultant to the Red Sox.

    Karius only cost 5 million quid, which is peanuts in the footballing world but his owners have to think about the resale value.

    Sorry for being a bit cynical.

    Yep, every bit of that, esp. the 'reviewing game footage', never heard that before in terms of a docs response to an injury. In the nicest possible way, I hope he did have concussion - with no lasting consequences obviously - because it provides a better story than '2 catastrophic mistakes'. But the whole process here stretches credulity.

    Hollis Bloody furious

    I think it's perfectly credible that he had concussion. It's very common with brain injuries to be oblivious to them. I'm only surprised the tests weren't done sooner.

    I'm a big Liverpool fan so I feel justified in wondering if Karius contrived to be concussed for lots of other Liverpool matches this season.
