      How many coaches make pressing one of their main tactics? 

      Being very fit yes, the rest of what you posted nah if you have a football brain which most players do then it’s actually fairly simple as long as your colleagues follow.
      Agree... It's a tactic not a skill in the real sense of the word. As for comparing who was better than the other, well there's sort of no point...you pays your money and you take your choice....They were/are both pretty good.

      Again...if its so easy why aren't there more players like Firmino?

      I think Jürgen thinks its a very valuable skill when to press. Bobby is unique we wont replace him like for like no matter how much we spend.
      Going back to Torres it was the way both he and Stevie brought the best out of each other that made him special.

      Even when Firmino was only getting 10 goals a season he was staying in the team because of everything else he brings - energy, tactical awareness, supreme skill, playmaking, defending, pressing, heading, the list goes on and on.

      Proud to say he’s my fav ever Liverpool player after Gerrard.

      For a self proclaimed tactical mastermind like yourself there is nothing more amusing than believing pressing is just running 😂😂

      It's more than running...Just...even so it's a bit inflated to call it a skill. ie: You don't hear George Best...now there was a presser!

      Couldn't help but cry with him as he walked round the Anfield pitch this afternoon, emotions were running very high, you could just see him soaking up the adulation that the Liverpool fans have for him. I could feel my heart swelling with pride.

      I hope the next stage of his career is one of happiness and whoever signs him has a player of quality on their hands, good luck Bobby.

      It's like he went on the pitch today thinking we're not going to lose on my last game at Anfield. No matter how technically gifted you might be, the game is still played in the head, the top players see the picture of what to do, and do it. Today he worked out to not lose this game he's got to score, and the way to score is to be in the right place at the right time that give's him the best chance to score. So that's what he did. He wanted it, and he's clever enough, and talented enough to make sure he got it.
      His legacy is well and truly cemented alongside the greats.
