      Everything but a goal.

      Outstanding.

      Yep.

      I amazes me that anyone could call for him to be dropped.
      He does so much that people don't seem to notice.
      For instance, if Firmino does't drag the defense out of position, Wijnaldum doesn't get in behind for his goal.

      Better but still not at his best, good signs for the run in with Bobby returning to what we know he can do.

      thought he was excellent today he gets involved all over the pitch and is always available. The way he set up Mo is him in a nutshell he is just such an intelligent lad but then again most of them are aren't they

      For instance, if Firmino does't drag the defense out of position, Wijnaldum doesn't get in behind for his goal.

      It's his work off the ball that is irreplaceable and of big importance to us more than anything. Klopp has frequently talked about or mentioned that aspect of Firmino's game rather than the numbers he is putting up in terms of goals and assists. When we were playing well at the start of the season, he went a number of games without getting on the scoresheet, yet we were still scoring plenty of goals. A lot of that is down to Firmino. Then when he combines his work rate with being good on the ball during games, that's when we look at our absolute best.

      There's not a single player in the world that I'd rather have than Firmino playing that particular role. Sometimes he is infuriating when he looks a bit careless on the ball etc., but I can forgive him that. He's a mad, brilliant player.

      On another note, it doesn't entirely excuse his poor performance against West Ham, but rumors are he had been ill too in the days prior to the West Ham game. It seems that the bug that went around really caught the majority of our players and would explain the big drop off in performances during Leicester and West Ham with a lot of our players, including the likes of Robertson and Van Dijk for example.

      100% agree Danz.

      Watching this team without Bobby Firmino is like trying to eat a pizza with no base.

      Apparently no Firmino in training today due to a virus. Unusual amount of illnesses popping up and I’m wondering if the trips to Dubai/Marbella are a factor.

      Me and Mrs both ran with common or garden viruses until totally floored.

      Half my work off at the moment and I work in the HQ of a massive company.

      I think the Dubai / Marbella thing is a red herring.

      Plenty about.

      Yeah been a few - that’s kinda my point there’s loads of virus / bugs about everywhere just now.

      I’m not sure the trips away are the issue - correlation vs causation.

      I can’t see it being down to the trips away because we aren’t the only team suffering with it.

      I hardly ever get sick till I travel. That’s just my personal experience. I seem to fair well against the local stuff but I go somewhere else and catch something. Could just be cooncidence, but a change in climate a lot of times plays havoc with my immune system.

      I’ve hardly been off my back for a week now mate and as most on here know I’m a bit hyperactive physically.

      Overall I’ve not been right since November and should’ve rested up earlier.

      F**k.
      Take it easy mate, and hope you feel better soon.

      Hope Firmino hasn't got your bug ;)

      Thought he did very well tonight bearing in mind he has been suffering with a virus. Immense really putting in that much effort for 70mins.

      Yeah I thought he was smashing. Some of his hold up play was terrific.

      For me was our key threat going forward tonight even with his virus. Those who think Bobby can be replaced should really watch this game again, although we didn't score he was the link to all our threatening attacks. Also, his pressing should not go unnoticed, as soon as he game off i think we lost the press and Origi wasn't doing enough.

      Think his form is starting to pick up at the perfect time and i expect a BIG performance from him on Sunday.

      Any news on Bobby?

      He didn’t seem to be too bad as he left the pitch in fact he was still moving quicker than Sturridge  :D

      Left on crutches but that's likely precaution

      They said they were going to let the swelling go down for a day and there would be an update at the Watford pre match presser

      I'd think this.

      I've had ankle injuries like his (rolled over). Depends on how elastic his joints are ;D. You can usually play on them right after they happen, but the soreness, swelling and bruising make take a few hours to show up. To be honest, if we could get him a week or so's worth of rest, that would probably be better for healing. I'd hate to see him hurt it again because he was rushed back. We can take out Watford without him, just put Mo up front and put Shaq out wide.
