Morning fella's. A little off topic this morning with obviously a few big transfers hopefully on the horizon but just a little thought that ran through my head was is anyone else worried about the chance to conversion rate with Firmino playing as our number 9? He's obviously a fans favourite amoung most fans but there's this slight doubt on his finishing which did and could hinder us in the coming season for when we have 20+ chances in a game and struggle to put the game to bed. It's a tough subject because I do like him a player but I'd thought il touch on it as a maybe a healthy debate amoung us?

{Ed025's Note - as good a technical player as firmino is he is not a centre forward L4L square pegs in round holes and all that, i have said before that liverpool need a goal scorer, a 20+man who will convert the many chances that im sure that talented midfield will surely provide, solanke may be the answer but not at this time and for me you need a poacher who will turn draws into wins and losses into draws, its fine saying its good to have the goals shared around but in the end you need a slotter who will get those ugly wins and frighten defences mate...just my view of course..

Agree3 Disagree3

I agree with that ed, any time liverpool have seriously challenged for the title we've always the best striker in the prem that year.

{Ed025's Note - its been that long ashy that i cant remember mate.. :)

I know what your saying ed25 mate and your not wrong but for me I'd rather stick with what we have this season, surely 1 of the 4 natural strikers can create some magic this season I also agree it won't be Solanke not this season. I'm looking at Sturridge for it, if he stays fit we're laughing.

I personally think it'd be a silly move buying another striker whilst we have 4, unless of course, Sturridge was shipped out. Ings is also exciting me, providing he stays and doesn't go out on loan I think he will be beneficial but again, as long as his fitness is on track. If he stays fit this season it'll be like having a new signing. Origi is debatable, though I rate the kid, is he ready to score 20+ now? no, but I want to see him get games and improve because I believe he's got incredible potential.

I love Firmino but as Ed25 has said he's not a natural forward. This is why I'm hoping to Christ Sturridge stays fit and he can start smashing them in left, right and center.

{Ed025's Note - studge is the only option you have teabag but im afraid hes such a wimp that it will never be on a regular basis, origi and ings are just not of the calibre needed to unlock defences against the better teams and bobby banana boots is not the answer either, for me if your serious about contending then this issue needs addressing mate..

Couldn't agree more. People argue that we scored an abundance of goals last season but the only stat that counts is where you finish the league. We scored plenty of goals in most games but then others we couldn't hit a barn door with a handful of rice. It wasn't like the Rodgers era where we were having to score 4 or 5 to win games as the defence was leaking constantly. The games we lost or drew we dominated with over 20 shots a game. That is a
Stat that cannot be manipulated.

15 Jul 2017 08:36:20
Totally agree ed025. I said months ago that we need an out and out striker. Firmino has a lot of qualities but he's not a CF imo.

15 Jul 2017 08:39:10
Bit of sense there from 25, he showed last night that we need an actual striker.

15 Jul 2017 08:46:45
I can see Danny Ings being that poacher Ed25 ;-)

{Ed025's Note - i cant nicky...i think the last time he played he wore cork studs and there was a lace in the ball mate.. :)

15 Jul 2017 10:35:48
Lol Ed025, goalscoring is the least of LFC's worries right now. Pretty sure we will score 80+ goals next season, its the defense that needs fixing. Hopefully Keita and VVD can fix those issues.

15 Jul 2017 09:17:59
I can't see it been addressed this window, I think if things stay as they was last season (striker wise) then it'll be dealt with next summer. That COULD prove to be a mistake but I'm hopeful Sturridge can get it sorted out. On his day when fully fit he's top notch, but ed25 you are right mate that's the problem is weather he can do it on a regular basis and somehow I have my doubts but everything crossed at the same time.

15 Jul 2017 09:27:13
Bobby banana boots😂 ed liking the banter this morning. 👍.

{Ed025's Note - its all good mate..

15 Jul 2017 10:09:11
Ed25, how about a sportsman's bet? I don't think Studge will get 20 goals because Firmino's first choice but I recon he'll get 15, do you fancy that action?

{Ed025's Note - your on putney..league goals of course..

15 Jul 2017 10:23:01
And I think he scored against you lot ed25.

{Ed025's Note - he did ben but that was a fkuke mate.. :)

15 Jul 2017 10:32:38
I have to agree with ed025, but the only thing is when Firmino plays out wide is is barely in the game. have to hope that he becomes more lethal but for me Firmino is not great goals scorer but a scorer of great goals.

{Ed025's Note - thats fair grino..

15 Jul 2017 11:57:33
Totally agree with 0025. Been saying for ages, name a side which won the league or close runner up which didn't have a 20+ goal striker? In any of the top Europe leagues.
Firmino, didn't he play behind the striker in Germany?

Sturridge is the only one we have really. I'd part with Origi and Ings to make space and funds for a top striker. Klopp had this throughout Dortmund days, really unsure why he isn't repeating this here.

15 Jul 2017 13:11:46
Haha, quality ed 25

Come on, all that time off he'll be razor sharp.

He should have no problem kicking the lightweight balls now and as for the cork studs, being in the fashion trade, I hear they are making a comeback- full circle and just in time 😎😎.

15 Jul 2017 12:00:15
Excellent ed, we'll reconvene at the end of the season for bragging rights.

{Ed025's Note - i look forward to it mate..
