Richard Keys is at it again.
The former Sky Sports anchor displayed the kind of footballing insight we've come to expect from him over the years this weekend; this time taking aim at the colour of Roberto Firmino's boots. No, really he did.
With Liverpool's season having started in such impressive fashion, members of the media are finding it difficult to pick faults in what the Reds are doing on the pitch. This hasn't stopped Keys though, and while watching Liverpool's 1-0 victory over Brighton on Saturday evening, Keys' keen analytical eye caught something most of us completely missed....Roberto Firmino was wearing blue boots.
Firmino in blue boots? I’ve mentioned this before. Never in years gone by. You wouldn’t find an Evertonian with red boots on.— Richard Keys (@richardajkeys) August 25, 2018
Keys had clearly forgotten that Liverpool have some of the most voracious and vocal supporters on Twitter though and Reds fans were quick to prove the pundit wrong...
Richarlison getting a red card? I’ve mentioned this before. Never in years gone by. You wouldn’t find a Liverpool player getting a blue card.— Mujtaba (@mjzvi) August 26, 2018

It wasn't just Liverpool fans getting in on the fun...
Too right Richard. I'm an Arsenal fan and my Mum once got me a lilywhite towel for Christmas. I threw it straight in the bin and haven't spoken to her for 20 years.— Mark Brus (@mbrus88) August 25, 2018
There's not much to say about Richard Keys that hasn't already been said (just check out the rest of the replies for some of the more 'colourful' rebuttals), but it would be nice if certain members of the media could start taking an interest in genuine analysis of what goes on on the pitch, rather than focusing on these quite inane points.
