    Firmino

    Works his bollocks off for the team but has been piss poor so far this season.

    But let's ignore that and have a pop at Henderson, Mignolet and Moreno. Far easier than pointing out a decent player has severely lost form.

    Time For a Rest Bobby

    Love the guy, excellent footballer but ... I really don't know what he is. He's no CF yet when played out wide or even withdrawn as a 10 he's not as effective. The chances we have to create to score a goal has reached a level beyond funny.
    Aubameyang was apparently available in the summer but Klopp didn't even glance in his direction. We need a CF worthy of the name to finish one of the half a sozen chances our build up play will offer him every game. Sturridge will have to do until we can bring in someone clinical who is available on a regular basis. A Morata, a Lukaku, an Aguero, a Kane .... whatever but we need one.

    I like him but im not on board with how good some think he is. He defo needs to sit out a few games. He wont though.
    The defining moments in our lives are never planned.

    Apparently a certain Cavani may be pushed out by Neymar. But knowing Klopp, he will keep playing Firmino. He should have been subbed today instead of mane.

    How the Fuck can he be tired ? It's still September! !
    He's been poor since the Sevilla penalty miss, a rest on Saturday then it's a international break so maybe so.

    Love Firmino as a footballer. Does such an important job in terms of setting the pressing tempo and creating space.

    Is bang out of form, which happens to all players, and I'd happily see him given a break for a couple of games in the hope it refreshes him, bring him on for the last 20 minutes to harass and be generally waspish.

    We have loads of attacking mids but no clinical striker. Like a swarm of bees round the hive but no stingers. Put a Kane-Aguero-etc finisher up front and he could get 25+ goals with the number of chances we get

    Agreed - I thought the Barca 10 midfielders experiment had ended with Guardiola moving to U.K. He had better players than LFC - give up Klopp and try a little orthodoxy

    Could be try Oxlade-Chamberlain, Coutinho or Moreno out wide for a game and make Mane the centre forward?
