      Disgraceful performance from Bobby.

      Needs to be dropped after that.

      But I don't think Klopp had the balls to do it.

      Absolute shocker pass after pass to the opposition I could understand if they were difficult but most were 5 yards.

      Don’t think he is handling the pressure too well.

      To be wonderful you have to be consistent and currently he only gives a good game every 4 or 5 times and when he is bad he is utter sh*te.
      The problem is that Sturridge and Origi are even worse so he knows he's safe and plays that way.

      He’s been poor a lot this season. Like Hem said above, he shows you shades of brilliance (Arsenal, PSG, etc.) but he just hasn’t been the same this season. For one he tries to be flashy and cute on his gives around the box. What’s cute to LFC fans is when your ball goes to our team and not the other. He needs to pick it up.

      Needs to stop dropping so deep, it’s killing his game.
      Had the chance to score early on but didn’t even have the confidence to put his left foot through the ball and instead trickled it to the keeper.

      Need him back in last seasons role.

      Yeah I have less of a problem with a player smashing the ball into row Z than trickling a shot like that with a side foot. If he blasts it all bets are off. It could go top corner or top corner of the stadium but he does give himself a chance to score.

      But he's still more valueable than if Salah goes under the radar. Because Bobby at least provides some tackling and real pressure. If Salah is not up to, he's literally disappearing.

      Wrong.

      Salah has disappeared for large parts of games this season and still popped up to provide a goal or assist.

      When Bobby is off form he is only a hindrance to our attack.

      He is not wonderful he's just good, a 7 out of 10 player .

      He will never be as good as Salah or Mane.

      One of his worst games for us; lost the ball or gave it away so often it was unreal.  Needs a big jump in performance level if we're to win the title.

      Serious question, is there any possibility of recalling Harry Wilson, we need some more firepower and this lad might just provide it.

      Can only recall players during a transfer window.

      Been thinking about Bobby and no doubt he is instrumental in the way we play and perform but he certainly has these dips of form every season which usually last more than a few games each time and even during games his passing for periods will fall off a cliff face.

      Even when he is not playing his pressing from the front is a major plus but this season we are not pressing as much, and seeing as though he is not scoring or assisting then there is a case for him to be dropped, however there is no real replacement and if he were to be dropped we would need to change our system which is unlikely at this stage of the season.

      Could have really done with a proper No10 in the summer window, but Jürgen seemingly only wanted Fekir!

      His poor form this season is a major reason why we are not firing on all cylinders in attack. He is so important to the way we play - defending from the front, obviously, but in attack he is the focal point for us. We don't really have midfielders who are going to play a lot of penetrating passes. We get it in to Bobby's feet and then he uses his touch to play in Mo and Sadio, running beyond him. If his touch or passing are off it is a lot harder for us to create.

      It is a tricky one for Jürgen. Cos Bobby is so important you don't want to drop him (and maybe hit his confidence as well). I think Jürgen should continue to start him, but if he is struggling like the other night get on Origi or Studge ( I'd go Origi just cos he works harder), maybe about the 60 minute mark to give them a chance.

      Such and important role he has in the middle of the front three, that when his form is in the bin we look soo disjointed up top.
      Just shows how good he is that when he's in form, he makes it look so easy.
      And even when not in top form, still hard to drop him cause of his work-rate.
      As much as anyone Bobby deserves some reward for his work, hope we/he gets something for it this season.

      Unless Bobby has looked amazing in training these last few days I'd be tempted to start Origi or switch to a 4-2-2-2 formation with Mane and Slaah up front supported by Shaq and Keita and Fabinho/Milner behind them. I'd then consider playing Camacho or young Hoever at RB.

      When Bobby is off form he is only a hindrance to our attack.

      They as equally important as one another

      He is not wonderful he's just good, a 7 out of 10 player .

      He will never be as good as Salah or Mane.

      Bobby can pull out those vital flick on's and touches that set up Salah and Mane, and he himself scores some wonderful Goals, Bobby is the glue that binds the front free and if not for Bobby in the team Salah would not score half the goal he does

      Salah is all about finishing and scoring from tight angles That's Salah's game. Yes he has good feet, and can dribble and run at players with pace but he is no more or less important than Firmino

      Mane... Tricky, great feet, can take players on, runs not stop, tracks back, tackles and wins balls scores goal, always hungry for them work tirelessly for the cause, my only problem with mane is that he can be a bit greedy

      Both Firmino and Mane allow Salah to score goals and shine

      Can understand people saying Bobby's form has dipped recently, because after that Arsenal game it most definitely has. But that being said he is still an amazing player to have at our disposal.

      Today he showed exactly why, he wasn't playing his best by any means but he wen't on to provide a breathtaking assist for Mo, ask Mo who he would want to be picked along with him in the team week in week out and my bet is his answer will be Bobby.
