      If he scored 10 more a season but Mane and Mo scored less as a balance would fans be happier?

      We won't know this mate unless Jota plays 20 games or so this season next to Mo and Mane to see how the stats compare.

      Key player is pushing it a bit there lad. Mane and Mo were bigger key players up front. Look at that goal scoring stat about home league games last season, it wasn't good enough, simple as.


      The reason why Mane and Mo were key were because of Firmino and all the work Bobby does on the pitch - and it looks like a lot of it unnoticed as well. Does it matter if he doesn’t score at home as long as he is doing the exact job the manager wants - and from what Klopp has said many times it’s not about scoring goals for Bobby

      I remember there was an interview with Firmino not long ago, where he said he went to Klopp, worried that he wasn't scoring enough goals.

      Klopps answer? "Just keep doing what you're doing".
      He's stated so many times that Firmino's game is not about goals.

      Might be an idea for some to take that on board.

      Agree, so we can also agree the last six months have definitely seen a drop in those standards from Bobby. If you can't see it take the rose tinted glasses off lid!!

      You can't... because he hasn't. But there are supporters so loyal to Bobby they would rather see him play with one leg than be dropped. And would still convince themselves he should be starting.

      That being said I would love to see Bobby back to his 18-19 season form as he was immense back then.

      Hopefully he can recapture some of that tonight.

      I remeber a couple key goals vs Wolves and Spurs just after Christmas when we had a tough run but I think his 19/20 can summarized in not many goal but he came up good when we needed it.

      Much better tonight.

      Needs to build on it now and kick on back to the level he was at around a year ago.

      Hopefully this kick starts him back to his world class best.

      Klopp on Firmino: “What people say about him is ridiculous, it's because they have nothing else to talk about sometimes, he played outstanding."


      The stick Firmino gets is similar to the horseshit that got pedaled at Hendo.


      Some portions of the supporters like to be loud and ignorant. It is what it is. Bobby’s contributions will always be under appreciated till they aren’t there anymore.

      His rate over the last 18 months for us is 1 PL goal per 4.6 games.

      This needs to improve dramatically.

      If it does I reckon we could definitely win the league

      If Bobby gets back to his best we will walk the league it will add another 25 plus goals and assists.
