Sad news, an absolute cornerstone in the history of the club in ending the league drought
It’s definitely the right move, we most likely won’t have cl next year so 4 main forwards are enough next year with a couple of young guns for the Europa etc
His wages saved will be important in investing it elsewhere
I'm not giving up on Europe just yet. With that said, this is the right call. And I mean that from a progression point of view. If we had money to burn than absolutely resign him. But with the wage bill having gone up, him getting older, and us having to rebuild, this is the right move.
Firmino is my son's favorite player. He's an absolute legend and IMO is the one player that encapsulates Jurgens philosophy. One of the most selfless players I've ever seen, and one of the smartest. Truly gutted from a Bobby fan point of view. We will be singing this lads name 20 years from now, and that's saying something when you take into account that he isn't scouse or from the UK. Bobby is the perfect embodiment of this game and shows players can capture the hearts and minds of a fanbase by giving their all. I love this kid and will truly miss him.
Scored some massive goals, showed us beautiful link up play, and had the best celebrations. F***ing legend.
My favorite Bobby goal was either the fancy footwork killer against Arsenal or the one that made us Wolrd Champs. What's is yours?
