      I wasn't a "fan" of his when he first entered, but for the life of me, I can't remember why! I do know he can be a bit of a dick when he's on the clock with his grammar police hat (I personally think it's belittling), and totally understand why a few dislike/hate him; However, whether I agree or not with him, I do thoroughly enjoy reading his footballing opinions, and I know if he disagreed with me, he would not put a spin or insult my opinion (unless i start first) and we could go back and forth chatting like normal people!

      So yeah... I do like Rib and think he is good for the forum, sorry people!

      Well said, we must debate with points but not to insult the other party as if I am the "Mr. Know Everything and Knows Better Than You Do, So Shut-Up And Follow My Opinion". Nobody needs to agree with anyone's opinion if he or she doesn't want to, simple as that. When a poster replied with vulgarities and insulting words then it is best to put that poster on an ignore mode because soon he will be talking to himself, seen that enough in other forums.

      Fair enough mate if Bobby looks like getting back to his form from last season then I'll be delighted.

      Obviously he's a brilliant player when in form I was just getting so frustrated with him this season. I actually think he's a better player then he even realises but he needs to be more consistent.

      Exactly, when he's on fire he's unbeatable but sadly he can have a superb game and the next 4 or 5 games either average or gone missing. May I boldly say, he is simply inconsistent and I did not just say it now but I've said that probably 2-3 years ago. Torch me, fire me, slate me, humiliate me, insult me, by all means I stand by my opinion. On his day, he is unplayable and if Bobby is consistent in his performance, he'll truly be world class. I wanna see a Bobby with 4 superb games and 1 average/poor game and not the other way round. Having said that, I honestly wanna see Bobby ended up as a legend here not just one of those players.

      Class performance yesterday, exactly what we needed when the pressure was beginning to mount.

      Mane's goal eased any nerves and from there we never had to look back.

      He is world class mate - absolutely top end too.

      Don’t let an ugly looking game here or there fool you. Even when he looks scrappy he’s an absolute nightmare for the oppo.

      We’re a poorer side with anyone else in his place.

      So after watching a replay of the game this morning it's clear now when Bobby is up for it our attack is scintillating and no defence can live with us.

      I'm not sure why he has been so inconsistent this season but it could be a combination of post WC fatigue and a touch of complacency due to the fact he knows there is no one else in the squad that can push him out of this starting spot.

      He's had a 6/10 season when it can and should be 8/10 given his quality. If he continues to play like yesterday consistently for the remainder of the season he will be the key difference in us winning the title.

      I think you have to look at what he does off the ball as much as what he does on the ball.
      That's the key.
      He's everywhere, and constantly working defenders, pulling them out of shape, keeping them busy, making so much room for others to exploit.

      The thing yesterday was that Bournemouth didn't mob any of our attackers.
      How many times we've seen 2 or 3 opposition players on Salah as soon as he gets the ball.
      Same with Firmino.
      Both the midfield and attack had lots of time and space, and they took advantage of it.

      True. It's the games when his brilliant work rate combines with a final end product that Bobby looks world class. If he can do that consistently he'll be up there with the best for them.

      To be fair to Firmino, he hasn't played as high up as he did yesterday in a good few matches this season. Also, one thing that rarely gets mentioned is his hold up play, I think it's on par with world class target players and Suarez.

      I would love to see him stay higher up from now on and keep Salah on the right.

      I do recall him playing higher up as a 9 than deeper as a 10 more often, or maybe I am wrong? When did Klopp first introduce Salah as the 9, it was the very late stages of the season?

      The change yesterday was having Bobby central and higher up, Salah back on the right and crucially the midfield being dynamic and fluid and always pressing forwards, it was much much better than recent games. This is my favoured midfield and if we stick with this then we'll win a hell of a lot of games with a lot of goals as well.
      Honestly if we can replicate that performance against manure then we win the game, Just hope Klopp doesn't go neg for that game with Hendo, Milner and Gini in midfield, but I don't think he will now, I think he now trusts Fab and Keita in the middle.

      Agreed - it’ll be wrong drop Fabinho. He’s been so good, a proper classy player.

      Keita was excellent and don’t get me started on Wijnaldum.

      Love that midfield 3 - with the energy of Henderson to come on 65+

      We can’t mate.

      Best in the world at what he’s does.

      Lose so much more than we’d gain even when he’s scrappy (even on Monday - when he was rank - some of the awfulness was just an inch or two away from opening them up).

      Even this Yank can see how amazing Bobby is when he’s at his best, how someone could watch that output yesterday and think he was anything but class boggles my mind.

      To be honest, the incredibly whiny post about "blasphemy" really cracked me up.
      Talk about clutching at straws in a desperate attempt to get attention.

      I respect other peoples beliefs, but it works both ways, so browbeating people (or trying to ) about "blasphemy" is only ever going to result in me saying "f**k your god; if an supposed all seeing, all knowing invisible sky man is going to go all snowflake over f**k all, let him at it"

      The way i see it is, when i post I'm liking it to being stood on the Kop, or sat these days and saying it as i see it, without a seconds thought of offence to anyone,  for me its a  place where you vent your sh*te good or bad, i can't get to Anfield these days or indeed anywhere i could 'let go' if you will,

      Where else is there,  for a ordinary working man to release some of life's tensions, then be dictated to , ' you can't say this, or you can't say that,
      I guess we've become a soft centered society where fear of offending others takes precedence over having a  true reflection on certain matters.

      I completely understand where you're coming from in regards to venting.
      It's the main reason I stay out of the match threads while the match is going on.
      My family and friends are used to me shouting at the TV when I'm watching a match, so I'm all good as far as that goes.
      My only gripe is that some are far too quick to start slating the players, the team, the manager.
      It's got to the stage now where if we haven't scored in the first 20 minutes, some are tearing their hair out (or pretending to), just so they can start on their agenda again.
      Wait til we lose. The "Klopp is so overrated" posts will start appearing again.

      I'm old school.
      I don't slag players for the sake of it.
      If they're wearing an LFC strip, I support them.
      Yeah, I know some say things in the heat of a match, it's always been that way, but woe betide any outsider who started that sh*te, especially in the pubs after the match.
      Then there's the ones who lie in wait, seemingly wishing for something to go wrong so they can jump on it and make a fuss.
      It's this calculated whinging and targeting of particular players that gets me, so another reason I stay out of the match thread.

      This is what we needed to get some positive vibes around the players and supporters, looked very good got a couple goals early and saw it off in the second half keeping a clean sheet. Hoping to see more production from Gini going forward as he is capable of putting up goals and assists like he did in his first season, maybe this goal will make him the guy in the middle who can chip in more of the offence. Like to give Milner a little credit as well, second game with assist from the full back position.

      Hopefully this break will allow us to get some bodies back to full fitness before what will be a hectic and important couple of weeks.

      What you said, and yesterday the pace of the game was more intense instead of that slow methodical build up build up we have seen most of the season... I feel a big part of Bobby's game is how quickly he thinks on the ball and how quickly he lays the ball off. defenders find it hard to live with that mental quickness

      Well Chelsea only srarting to fkn play now once there 4 down. That wee c**t aguero is always in right bloody place. Pissed off even more with spurs keep getting totally outplayed for the third week in a row. Leicester could have scored 10 and still nick another win. Oh well.
