      I understand what you are saying, but with footballer comparisons I noticed it a lot.. Sterling, Mbappe and a whole list of players have been compared to Pele, why not Diego Maradonna? I will forget about it now, even though it didn't go down well it is probably going to make people more considerate when comparing.

      Origi reminds me of Fowler, Keane, perhaps Ngog but not Hesky.. not one bit.

      Origi reminds you of Fowler!?! I’ve heard it all now. One is possibly the most natural goal scorer ever to play for the club and the other is Divock Origi.

      Origi shares plenty of attributes with Heskey. For one he is furiously inconsistent, blessed with physical gifts that he only uses at times, he is quick, he is mostly a poor finisher and he lacks the instincts a real striker. But on his day he can be an absolute beast of a player. I’d say Divock is a lot closer to Heskey than he ever will be to ‘God’.

      I don't think that Origi has any kind of future at Liverpool. He is simply not good enough for the first team, while he is just too expensive to keep on the bench.

      origi and heskey arent even the same build. Heskey was more burly and Origi is lanky. If you can't see that then i have to say its a bit odd.

      The only similarity is that they are both strikers who are sometimes forced to play out wide cause they are quick. Just sturridge, babel, rashford welbeck etc etc.

      U WOULDNT SAY WELBECK AND HESKEY ARE SIMILAR PLAYERS. BUT Origi is more like Welbeck.

      Cmon guys seriously ;D  :mad: :lmao:
      Agree with Welbeck comparison, Origi is very similar to Welbeck in playing style, the quality level isn't miles apart either. Hesky was power and Origi is footwork, very different. Hesky was more like Rooney than Origi.

      Aye, Origi is nothing like either Fowler or Wellbeck. Hesky is closer, but still not that close.

      It's hard to think of a really similar player. In terms of skill set / physical attributes, the closest I could think of was actually Balotelli. But in terms of mentality there's a big difference. Balotelli is cocky but lazy and unprofessional. Origi is harder working and more of an honest pro, but seems to lack a bit of self-belief.

      I think Origi could be a really top striker if he had more belief and determination. It's hard to get that into a player if they don't already have it, but if Jürgen could release that in him, he would be a cracking striker. He's got the skills, the physique and the pace. Good finisher on his day as well. Just needs to be a bit mentally tougher.

      Missed the chance at the end, but at least he was in there. How often do you see Firmino running in behind the defence? Everything is in front of the defence and if his passing is off, which it has been most of the season, he just doesn't give defenders enough of a problem. I thought Origi carried far more threat when he replaced him, and I hope Jürgen uses him again when Firmino is struggling like last night.

      Origi is just so frustrating, you can see that their is nearly a very decent player there but it just doesn't click for him, he  doesn't have that extra bit of skill at this level, but he is a good instinctive player in the same way as Kuyt was in that he is in the right place at the right time.
      I'd almost be tempted to give him a run of games and see if he improves, he really can't be much worse than Bobby at the moment.

      Give him 1.000 min. serious game time this season and we'll see. It's ridiculous to judge players who have no minutes under their belt. That's vital.

      He isn't good enough and will be sold in the Summer.

      did you have any confidence he would, even with the header against the Bitters I was half expecting him to head it over! ;-)

      In all seriousness I would like to see him get a few more minutes especially now that Bobby is having a major dip in form and in any case we have to rotate our forwards a bit more than we do. for example Origi, Mane and Salah is still a formidable strike trio as is Mane, Bobby and Sturridge. We simply have to start mixing things up a little bit more and then have the option of bringing someone in off the bench to scare the crap out of defenders with 30 mins to go.

      What like Bobby's lame effort or Salah's couple of easy saves?

      Yep how he fluffed that when he had another chance to make himself a Hero.

      Linesman never flagged so it would have counted and meant so much to us, but he poked at it when all he had to do was put his foot through it either side of the keeper.

      Would have been a tragedy for West Ham but I don't give a f**k about them. Would have taken the win and all the critics talking their bullshit if it had gone in, for those extra 2 points.

      What’s the point of this lad? I know being thrown into a high intensity contest against one of the best teams in Europe can be tough to adjust to but he looked like such a wast of space and sub.

      Reminded me of those little toy wind up dogs who take of for ten seconds in a straight line and stop.
