Did well for that goal but his intensity has dropped big time along with the cm's and fb's. You can never question his effort but something seems off. I hope the long WC break gives him the time to come back to his physical best.
You donít think heíll make Brazilís squad for the WC?

I have not seen the brazil team play or how they are setup. Most of their fans seem to think that their forward line for the WC will be Neymar, Vinicius, Raphinha, Richarlison, Jesus, Cunha, Antony. Looking at the depth, i highly doubt firmino will make it.

Ecstatic to see this form from him - not just for us but for him personally. Written off far too early by so many people.

He is definitely not able to start every single game for us but I really hope we can manage his injuries and his minutes as he still has so much to offer the squad. There is no-one like him when he is playing like this.

With that kind of talent bar Richarlison, it is no surprise at all. It would be disappointing for him but it would give him a good break while others are out there baking under the Qatari sun.

Just watched the full replay of the game again, without the full on 'white noise' of it being live. Bobby was really, really good again, In fact it was him and Harvey who kept us driving forward - I counted he lost possession 3 times all game. Two of them when there was nothing else on and was passed to when surrounded by 3-4 barcodes. His pass to Diaz in the 1st half was an absolute 'thing of beauty' and he took his goal sublimely. I'm happy we have Jurgen picking the team and not some of the usual 'Bobby's finished' suspects we have in here. To them, I suggest you watch the game again.

yes, he looks sharp and hungry again. pretty much had lots of last season off, maybe fresh somewhat in the mind.

Bobby has hit the ground running this season, heís been amazing so far. The work that he does is irreplaceable. I wonder if we would play with a diamond this weekend to utilize that, or 4-2-3-1. It seems that Nunez coming on as a sub would be a waste of both talents, unless Bobby is knackered.

Get Bobby to wear them out for 60 minutes then bring on Nunez at 60 with his pace and power vs tired defenses. I can see them playing together but I think Klopp may go more easing Nunez back in them starting him in a derby where team probably trying to get under his skin.

I thought he looked pretty sharp at the end of last season when he came back from injury, like he had been rested and ready to go again. Seems like that rest and the summer preseason has done him well. Back to the Bobby of old

Agree, thought Bobby in his limited appearances last season was good. Very good at times.

They couldn't pick him up the other night in that midfield pocket. You do wonder if he could do a job in midfield as Darwin makes his way into the team, but would that blunt his effectiveness if that was more of a fixed position?

After watching his 100 goals again, I think he needs to play as a forward. He could probably play in midfield, but it would be a bit wasted and go against his instincts to get into the box.


Think the whole issue with him dropping deep has more to do with our midfield not functioning, than with how Bobby plays. If we had a decent midfield, he'd stay up front and make things happen there.

I expect him to start so it's a big game for Bobby tomorrow. Hope he doesn't go hiding as he did against Utd.
He didn't go hiding. The set up meant he was isolated and needed to go looking for the ball as there was nothing coming to him if he stayed in is nominal position. Given that issue, he actually played quite well. Every intelligent analysis of that game has agreed on that point.

He had to drop deep though. He was all but hiding. If there is one player in our squad that one cannot level that accusation at, it would be Bobby.
If we didn't have him doing that, btw- we'd have been walking out of there with more goals against us.
It was a reasonably intelligent move to operate like that all throughout, a self-sacrificing move, considering. We'd have conceded more otherwise, because our midfield was non-existent, Trent had feck all protection and United were free to run straight through our midfield most of the game. One more extra body in midfield certainly helped at least the defensive side of our game.
Also- he just came in from injury, so he was far from matchfit/sharp.

"Again" being the operative word. The Bootle Baresi has a thing about Bobby it seems.

Must be envy when even at the height of his own career, he was barely able to trap a bag of cement before the patent still pending, hop, skip and hoof.

Bobby doesn't score 25 goals a season. Therefore, others are better.

It's a tired argument.

It's a team game. Bobby has helped to make us what we are and what we've won. And will continue to.

Jurgen is tired of defending Bobby against neanderthal arguments.

If Bobby doesn't get a new contract then maybe Jurgen agrees with carra somewhat

It isn't ideal to have an outfield sub who can only play one position and needs the team to adjust to his stly  of play.  I was hoping we might shift to a 4 - 2 - 3 -1, as that migvht give bobby a more prominent role this yr.  Bobby looks like he  is gonna move on and we are moving on from the false 9 role, o I guess carra might be right

Hes still a great player, playing some of his best football in a struggling team
Hes not a traditional 9, but he never was and that worked fine.

Also, I think we should see it as a tactical opportunity, not burden, to have a different player like him in the squad.

Its kind of absurd to say that the team has to adapt to him, when hes been the gel keeping our attack ticking in so many games. Hes done so much ungrateful groundwork for Salah and Mane
