      Yep

      I mean Torres was good til he screwed us when we needed him but it's odd that he can't see the merit of Bobby even though Torres best season was 33 goals and now Bobbys best (and his first real as a true no.9) is 27 (so far) and he does far more for the team than Torres ever did other than being a no.9

      Indeed. I was gonna post something on those lines but he’s just 🎣

      The fact that he comes over as completely f***in’ tonto is neither here nor there......

      Somewhere there’s a double padded cell for the two belters lighting up the Ex Players and Staff threads this weekend......

      Loved Torres.

      Goals that always stuck out for me was dancing through the box Marseille away and Arsenal turn n shoot champs league game.

      There was something special about his shooting technique, can’t put my finger on it but it just looked fantastic.

      I genuinely cried like a baby when he left, similar feeling when’s Alonso went too.

      Along with the goal vs Blackburn.

      Was gutted when Alonso left, Torres I was pissed about because of how he went about it and the fact he was playing like he just couldn't give a sh*t about the team.

      Yeah he was like a f**king baby. Kind of glad that his form never returned for anyone else. F***ing won the champions league with Chelsea though which pissed me off

      Then again it could be worse, could be talking about Sturridge and how Klopp has mistreated him.

      His work rates better, that's for damn sure.

      Both have their qualities but for me, the Firmino of now or the Torres of 10 years ago at his best, I'd take Firmino. He has provided a similar amount of goals but set up plenty more, as well as putting in Kuyt like effort all over the pitch, he's a managers dream player IMO; Goals, assists, defending, work rate, rarely injured and good discipline. It's like all era's of players though, it's difficult to compare, we are just lucky that we are the ones who have gotten the best out of both.

      Torres benefited a lot from having Steven Gerrard and Alonso. Especially Stevie

      Better player, too f**king right!!

      Sometimes you need to be in the ground to appreciate Bobby's whole game, his movement and the way he hunt's down players to win the ball back is on another level to Torres.

      Torres would be the better goal scorer, but Bobby is a better all round player.

      Even on his worst day Firmino is a better footballer.

      Don't get me wrong for a period of a couple of seasons Torres was devastating and almost unstoppable but as a pure footballer Bobbie is far superior.

      Torres at his best was a better instinctive finisher than Bobby will ever be.

      But as an all round player Bobby is easily the superior footballer.

      I see the Firmino delusion is going strong.

      Probably better than Suarez too huh? But anyways.. 

      Happy for Torres. Hated it when he left, but time has healed the hurt, and now I'm happy to see him do well. Those two goals were a great finale for him.

      Why is it delusion just because people aren’t agreeing with you? It’s an opinion, not delusion and nobody is asking you to agree.

      You get the irony right?

      Calling others delusional whilst creating an alternative version of the truth re Studge and the team (esp Firmino) at every point.

      You’re a zoomer mate. Plot has been lost 🤣🤣🤣

      Nah, I love Firmino and he's a very unique player in that he's unusual and in some ways difficult to compare to more traditional strikers. But Torres at his best was the world's 3rd best player, he was on another level.

      Thing is mate. The comparison is nothing to do with either.

      It’s one poster’s obsession with Sturridge and constant need to have a pop at Bobby that’s created it.

      I agree, at his peak under us he was simply superb.

      haha. I suggest you read the posts in this thread mate.

      You can start with your own.

      Let me translate.....

      Torres wasn’t here when Studge has been.

      Torres is no threat to Studge.

      Torres is good.

      Be like Torres........

      🙄

      All I had said is I hoped Torres would grab a hattrick in his last game.

      Look at your own obsession. You were the one who brought Sturridge and Firmino into it to try and get a dig at me for being happy with Torres.

      Torres can always hit back at any critics and say "would you like to see my trophy cabinet" .
      As far as Bobby is concerned he has in my opinion constantly improved his game since being with us and without him I wonder how many goals would the other two would have ,you just have to love the guy and now he has added lots of goals to his game who could ever replace him

      Sure enough, I was right. A bit bitter aren't you that you and the like were wrong?

      Moses won the Premier League last season. He won the FA Cup this season, and has also continued to hold down a place in Chelsea's team throughout. Yet - not good enough for Liverpool allegedly.  :roll:

      Ah was it too subtle for you.

      I can provide subtitles for the deranged......if it’d stop you ruining thread after thread with the Dan-love.

      I just find it beyond odd you hop off of Firmino every opportunity but quickly jump to lavish praise on someone who agitated, downed tools and left the club in a poor manner.

      That’s it nowt more.
