Think it’s a bit of a red herring the focus on his lack of goals. He has seldom been especially prolific and his contribution has been more in the way he acts as a foil for the others. True he has had a poor season but this is roughly in proportion with how sh*t we’ve been overall.
In saying that, people are fairly asking the question whether we can’t do a bit better and that’s how it should always be if you’re going to play for LFC. The moment you think you’ve made it is the moment you fail and our signing of Jota shows there are indeed younger players out there ready to meet that challenge. Football is a game of renewal.
In my view, though, it would be hasty to get rid of him at this stage, off the back of success in the previous seasons, when he was part of the most devastating trio in Europe and regarded by the likes of Henry as the ideal strike partner. You don’t become a sh*t player after one dodgy season.
Usual disclaimers apply: provided his head is where it should be, we ought to be able to get a couple more seasons out of him yet. It’s squarely down to him. You want that quality and experience within the squad for as long as possible.
