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

Klopp wanted to keep Gini and he'll want to keep Bobby but we can't always keep everyone. It comes down to money as well and age profiles. We've kept players like Ox and now Milner around too long on good wages rather than divert those funds elsewhere to refresh the squad.

Carvalho is probably his long term replacement and Firmino's presence this season helps ease him in more.

But Clarence Seedorf said he should be starting every game. I dont know who to believe.....but I'm gonna go with the spitter who couldnt pass the ball more than ten yards when it comes to assessing technical false nines.
If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

Well, do you think he should be starting every game? Incidentally, I'd go with the ex-international I know watches all of our matches ahead of the one who probably doesn't, but that's just me.

Took both goals really well.  He's not the first choice forward anymore, but he's doing his job as a rotation option.

Honestly, my favourite player of the Klopp era. If this turns out to be his final season for Liverpool, he's giving us a lovely swansong. Hope this goalscoring run of form continues.

Our best period of attack in the game was with Diaz/Bobby/Salah. It's the most balanced, and I'd go with that next week. Jota will take time to get back up to speed.

His finishing has been 17/18 levels, going through one of his purple patches.  But I don't think his all round game has been that great, he's giving the ball away an awful lot and looks a yard off it.

Agreed, fantastic finish for todays goal but the dynamism is gone.

Lovely goal today and he's certainly in a good spell of form. A real dilemma for Jurgen now, as Bobby's playing well, Jota looks like he needs some games and rhythm, and Nunez has had two good games and looked dangerous.

We may well need Bobby and Nunez to get the goals until Mo/Jota can find form and Diaz gets back from injury.

If this is his last season with us, he's going out with all guns blazing. Playing like prime Firmino this season.

I honestly thought he was done.
