I hope bobby is working on being a number 9. He's too deep at times for me and should be more greedy. If Firmino is going to be our main man next season he needs to be banging 25+ goals in if we want to win things I reckon.

Kind of agree and disagree at the same time here.
I can't really fault his game, he comes deep at times because he probably needs to, however the teams shape will be slightly different this season with salah in the team, coutinho now behind him (and possibly Kieta) he will likely spend less time dropping deep to be the creator anyway.

Possibly not 25+ but he needs to be aiming for 20, I must admit I do worry that he lacks the natural selfishness required to be a striker. He and Sturridge are polar opposites in that respect and hopefully Klopp devotes Bobby's entire pre-season to learning the striker role as he's a great player but ultimately there are times you need to be relied upon to score as a striker.

I think it only becomes an issue if we struggle to score goals from other areas, as we did last season. I think over all it is more beneficial to score goals from all areas than rely heavily on one player. What if he gets injured or off form? Anyway its our defence which will make or break us this season.

With Keita in the team, and Coutinho no longer cutting in from the wings, Firmino would be able to focus on being a number 9.
