      Firmino is the obvious weak link in that front 3. A top forward would comfortably replace him in the starting 11.

      Surely you're taking the piss? Shouldn't be surprised given how you keep banging on about Sturridge.

      Firmino is the best in the world at what he does. Not even kidding. There is no other player in the world I'd have playing his position.

      I tell you what, Mbappe would probably be the only player in world football that would turn my head!

      You’d think mate. None so blind........

      Not instead of Bobby Purple - totally different role. He’d be “cover” for Mo and Sadio.

      He's going to Barca mate.

      And for £108 million they can have him.

      Add on to that the near on 300mill for Coutinho and Dembele. Whilst never selling a player for big money. Only a matter of time before they come unstuck.

      You've literally never watched us play if you think Bobby is a weak link

      Completely forgot about Neymar. That money has been well and truly spent though. If they sign Griezeman then they’d have spent it more than twice over

      Some folk just dont see what Bobby does, he is a striker & a 10 in one player, and tracks back like F@~k.

      1st name on team sheets after VVD I reckon.

      A top forward to play across the front 3 is really all we need and perhaps another utility defender to give Robbo and Trent some extra cover

      Depay, the Man Utd reject who had an attitude problem from what I remember? More likely Fekir I think

      Zaha says he wants to leave for champs league football, arsenal favourites to sign him.... weirdly

      I'd take him here to help with rotation, could play through the middle irninterchange with the front 3.

      Completely agree.  If he would come, and I know he wants to play regularly, then Zaha would be a very good signing for us IMO.

      I think Zaha is quality and at 26, he should be in his peak for 4-5 seasons, but will he be up for the fight?

      He's valued at over £60 million do you want to pay that for a squad player?

      Not sure about Zaha he has the pace needed but he is going to be pricey. Mind you we know Jürgen can take an average player and make them into a great ne but I do think his price tag is going to be too high.

      I'm not sold. Very talented but a bit soft I'm not sure he has the battle ability in him to be a Klopp player.

      And he will be way overvalued.

      If you guys think that our front 3 are perfect and cannot be improved on then fair enough.

      But as far as I'm concerned, Firmino does not pose enough threat, and I would be happy for a better replacement or someone to swap with him.

      He went through a bad phase this season and yet played every match at that time.

      I think there is always someone better (whether individual or for the team), but on paper, I don't see many that would come in and become a regular in our front 3, at best, it would be rotation or playing with our front 3 for now.

      Any players you would suggest that would push Firmino to the bench and make us a better team?

      I doubt £60M is overvalued nowadays given the size of the PL and CL money - an extra £12M on the books for say a 5 year deal is something I think the club could swallow if the likes of Mane were to do their cruciate!

      If you guys think that our front 3 are perfect and cannot be improved on then fair enough.

      I think the front 3 are arguably our best front three since we started having front threes as such.  I think the problem is in the replacement three and pressure for their places.

      After last season I thought of them all that Mane was the one who could most easily be replaced and he's stitched me right up on the basis of his season.
