Apart from the front 3, and one or two of their defensive players, they are really an underwhelming side

Agreed. We’re levels above them as a team. Levels. Competing on different levels, operating on different levels. Just different levels involved here. Pisses me off that they think Firmino can go there - he’s the best player in the world at what he does because what he does is unique and so high level. But it’s fucking PSG. Money talks, sure, they have lots of it. But him going there shouldn’t even be in the conversation - it’s PSG!!! Playing in a shite league, will not compete on the CL stage, and he’s a player going to 2 CL finals in a row and killing it in the best league in the world at the moment.

Their best players, if they truly want to go down as the best should be the ones open season, not ours to them, certainly not one of our very best.

If you want Mereno or Sturridge, maybe even Origi, Tuchel let’s talk, but otherwise, what the fuck?!

BBC reporting that Thomas Tuchel wants Firmino to be the #1 target for PSG this summer and of course LFC won't even entertain it by the same report.

Brought up an interesting discussion on twitter in that if they offered Hazard type money would you do it?  And if your response is that Firmino is irreplaceable to Klopp's system at even that amount of money then what does that mean for us in 2-3 years time when Firmino slows down and needs to be replaced?

Hazard money would be laughable, about 250 million?

Basically he’s not for sale.

I should have known better that it would turn into a "that's stupid, we would never do it" type discussion instead of more of a hypothetical discussion as I think everybody agrees that we aren't selling Firmino this summer. 

So again keeping in mind this is more of a brain exercise than something real, why would it take a world record fee to sell Firmino?  That's pricing him as if we lost him then he can't be replaced.

You can see why PSG would like him though. They have wideforwards who just like ours have the movement and finishing ability of regular strikers in Neymar and especially Mbappe. Firmino would be an excellent number 10/false 9 behind them with his passing and defensive ability.

I'd take Varane, Asensio, Dembele, Mbappe & Verratti from these sides. 3 of them go into our bench. Thanks much.

Agreed. Rakitic and Kroos have been done as top-level midfielders for a couple of years imo. Imagine them in a Klopp midfield. They'd be goosed after a few games!

IMO we need to find someone like Bobby to provide cover in case he's injured/suspended or (Fowler forbid) decides to move on. Timo Werner is probably the obvious choice, although it's debatable whether he would be content to be second choice, so maybe we should be looking for alternatives. From what I've seen of him, Firmino's successor at Hoffenheim, 22 year-old Brazilian striker/right winger Joelinton, might be as good a choice as any. Transfermarkt lists him at 36m +/-, so he would not be unaffordable, and appears to be a similar player, although obviously not the same caliber as our Bobby, who is in a class of his own. :)

One of my favourite songs is our Bobby one, but it just needs tweaking cos a couple of the lines just don't roll off the tongue as easy as they could do.

There’s something that the Kop want you to know,
The best in the world his name is Bobby Firmino, <<<<<< this line is just too long and always gets mashed up in the ground - that's why our songs get sped up.
Our number nine
Give him the ball and he’ll score every time <<<<<<< doesn't have to be grammatically correct, it's a footy song! Take out the 'and' and it flows better
Si senor
Give the ball to Bobby and he will score <<<<<<< could even shorten name to Bob to make it flow better

This will get a lot of airing at the CL final so really hope it will get sung well. It's a great song but it could be a lot better.
Especially the 2nd line - it always gets mashed up...too many words.

All that work and didn't even mention the Si/Sim-debate.
The song is boss as it is currently sung. Although I'm distinctively in the Sim-camp after Alisson corrected Jamie Webster  ;D
Really thought Martin Kelly would make it.
