      Imagine thinking Bobby was poor. He created some of our best chances, not to mention our second goal.

      Or maybe people don’t understand the word poor anymore.

      Agreed.

      I've been quite critical of Bobby this season but thought he played well second half, link up play was good, and showed great skill to create his chance for the deflected goal.

      Thought Bobby was poor last night, should have scored in the first half and his shot was going wide until the deflection, his confidence must be shot to pieces

      Leave it out FFS.

      These are finely tuned athletes, sitting on their arse for 3 months wouldn’t be good for them anyway, let alone the fact it was the beginning of a world wide pandemic

      If you don’t think all footballers currently aren’t playing well below their levels then you are just ignoring the obvious

      You can tell with simply your eyes that football isn’t being played at the same intensity currently but the numbers back it up to, I was reading last week that the number of defensive actions is about a third down, the about of presses the same, sprints down by over 35%

      That’s across all football

      Maybe they are all using the same “excuse”

      Have a read of this https://statsbomb.com/ you might find it interesting or in the least it may make you rethink reactive gestures

      LOL, so playing too much is bad and playing too little is bad as well, LOL I guess its just impossible to criticise Bobby then!!  What an utter load of nonsense the rest of the post was. There are plenty of players playing extremely well this season, the entire City team for example.

      As for strikers, it doesn't seem to have affected Kane, Rashford, Son, Salah and many others as much as it has Bobby, again why is that?


      Just stop making excuses for him please, he is in a terrible run of form right now, it does not take away from his previous contributions to the team and club, but on current form he should be dropped and I think he will be as soon as Jota is fully fit.

      I'll agree that his link up play was better, but his shooting was still utterly pathetic for a forward.

      The only person that *needs* to talk about Bobby is Klopp.

      Everyone else just *wants* to.

      If you don’t want to then no problem, but don’t forget, knowledge is power.
      All the information is out there for you lad, I’ve even given you a site to look at which shows you that intensity in all football is down this season

      Even if the overall intensity is down why is Bobby so much less intense/effective than other strikers. You have to admit he's in sh*t form for a long long time now. If not then no point continuing to discuss it.
