      Hopefully he makes it.
      Tbh, we've been lucky the front three have avoiding a bad injury all season.
      Could do with Bobby for Barca though.

      Eh?
      Gerrard had adductor injuries, lost muscle mass as a result of infection, and got a recurring infection that was so bad, part of his pelvis split.
      Before the chelsea "slip" game, he had an epidural to be pain free enough to play, and it wasn't the only time he had that done.

      Firmino is a long way from any of that; a small tear in a small muscle (as described by Klopp) shouldn't hamper him too much.

      My bad, thought it was the same muscle that Firmino has.

      Might well be a small adductor tear mate, but Gerrards problems were a lot worse than a little tear.
      There's a documentary on Amazon I think, called "Make Us Dream" where Gerrard talks about the extent of some of his injuries.
      Like most people, I had no idea they had been so bad.
      Great documentary though if you get the chance to watch it.

      Haven't seen specifics about Firmino's injury, but Klopp doesn't seem worried by it, so hopefully he'll be fine for weds.

      Was a massive loss last night not just in a attacking sense.

      Has been said by many but we really don’t have anyone who can deputise.

      Has been said by many but we really don’t have anyone who can deputise.

      It became more apparent and clearer than ever last night that outside of the front 3, we are incredibly limited. I think Mane and Salah played well; they had the defence scared and were going past them with ease and with Bobby there, it would have created even more problems but Gini made it incredibly easy for the defence and didn’t really support Salah and Mane. With Bobby playing, he drags players out of position, hassles them constantly and creates things that makes it easier for the other 2, take Bobby out of the team and we don’t have that. The fact we have Origi and Sturridge but go with Gini I think speaks volumes of how badly we need to strengthen the attack.

      I don’t feel as though everyone appreciates how vital Bobby is for us but last night he showed just how much we miss him if he isn’t on the pitch.
      After about 5 minutes of being on he came so close to scoring, but for a line clearance.

      He’s the ultimate number 9 for the way we play.

      Maybe not but Gini certainly wasn't the best alternative, I know Klopp doesn't fancy Shaquiri, for some unknown reason, but this could have been a perfect match for him or Origi with his pace.

      See this quoted quite often but I have yet to see this pace that Origi is supposed to possess.

      Never seen him beat a player for pace.

      I have, he's not lightening but he's pretty quick and he's certainly a more natural striker/link up man than Gini. I really thought that was an odd move. Personally I would have played Shaquiri, but as said Klopp does not trust/like him in his team which makes me curious why the hell he bought him!

      Any sense that we could “do better” should be stripped after last night.

      Our most important player bar none.

      Agreed.
      When I see so many in the transfer thread wanting "a proper number 9" I wonder if these people even understand how we play.

      Decent backup, certainly, we need that, but replace Firmino with "a proper number 9"? Madness.

      Hahaha, you and I both. Origi is not fast. He may be able to run fast in a race, but with the ball at his feet, he's not really quick at all, he doddles, waits to make decisions and is generally not that effective. Think Barca was worried when we brought him on last night?

      So if Klopp bought a Suarez, Lewandoski, D.Costa, Cavani type 9's, you really think he would have them play a false 9 role like Firmino? That's what you seem to be suggesting. We have seen Firmino, Mane & Salah play higher up as a 9 and work, just like you see Fabinho the DM work. A proper 9 can work, but it would be an alternative.

      And who said anything about replacing Firmino with a proper #9?

      Or having one of those aforementioned partner with him when Salah or Mane is out or need a break?

      I'd have nothing wrong with that type of alternative. I love Bob as much as anyone, one of my favorite players (if not my favorite) but surely we can't have all of our eggs in his basket...because then if he gets injured or God-forbid decides to move on, we can't be left toothless in attack.
