      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.

      Different types of players for me, Torres was a pure goal-scorer, for me Firmino's work on the pitch isn't just about scoring goals, he's more of a grafter.

      Don't forget, Torres worked hard for the type of player he was! But yeah, different types of forwards!

      Would be interesting to see how a world class goal scoring striker would do under Klopp with the players we have tbh.

      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.


      Yet you love Suarez - despite him doing much worse than Torres.  :roll:

      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:

      Absolutely bang average footballer

      I love him as a footballer yes absolutely - the will to win and desire.

      For the record I also love prime Torres and Studge 13/14 (not near the same level as Nando/Luis, but still).

      I can forgive Torres and Suarez for leaving. The crucial difference is that Suarez didn’t down tools.

      Anyway I think we’ve wasted enough of everyone’s time, let’s ignore :)

      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 🤣🤣🤣

      Victor Moses.

      Just to throw in my 2 cent, for what it’s worth:

      Suarez > Firmino > Torres

      Based on the system we play anyway. Torres a sublime finisher; Firmino, tenacious and gifted; Suarez, a mixture of both.

      Oh, I would also have Moses in the squad wthout doubt.

      He should have announced his retirement the day he left LFC.  That was when his career as an important footballer ended!! 🤣
