Hi Ed001, this past week we’ve heard numerous praises for Bobby (and rightly so), from Steve Bruce comparing to how it was the same with Cantona in that Utd side (in terms of making the team tick), to people labelling him the Brazilian King Kenny. Seeing that they are before my time, are the comparisons on point? Interested to hear fellow reds as well.

{Ed001's Note - exactly on point and what I have been saying for a long time. He is the key to the way we play. He runs the attack, the movement and space he creates, plus his ability to then play others in and the vision to spot what he has done, are the difference.}

Agree0 Disagree0

He reminds me of a Tevez/ Bergkamp hybrid. Tevez for hustle and Bergkamp for guile. Such a great player and at the top of his game right now.

Thanks Ed. I know you’ve been singing his praises long before. Would you agree players like Bobby would have a longer lifespan in the game, considering his biggest asset is his intelligence and not any particular physical component?

Have to agree there Redwillis, he does have a bit of both!

{Ed001's Note - yes, because his game is not about pace and stamina can last well into the 30s.}

And many of the people now singing his praises a year ago were saying how he wasn't good enough!

I don't see the hype to be honest. Will score less that 15 league goals this season.
Need Harry Kane or the like and we will get 2nd for the next several years.

If this was an NFL team, Bobbie would be the capt. (they have a shinny "C" on their shirts) of the offence, just like VVD would be the capt. of the defence (With a shinny "C" on his shirt as well".

Off fishing walter?

16 Sep 2019 19:12:37
dont yuo bored of trolling walter seriously mate
you post for a reaction
I don't think yuor a liverpool fan forgive me if you really are but that above post is just laughable.

Need to make the WUMmery more opaque there, Walter.

16 Sep 2019 17:31:47
Exactly Salah. I for one have never said that he wasn't good enough. I just always thought that initially he would be better playing behind another striker.

I am of course both wrong and right at the same time with that theory. He's best with his starting position as the number nine to draw defenders out of position, but he is kind of playing behind a striker; well two of them actually, when he drops deep. It's just that the strikers are running in from wide positions rather than being typical central strikers.

I've just read that back and I'm finding it hard to understand myself, but hopefully you can see what I'm trying to say.

Why are you all feeding Walter the scraps that he wants? Surely after this weekend (if he even watched the game) must be ridiculously stupid if he can't see what quality Bobby brings.

Even someone who has never watched a game of football in their life could watch that game and come to the conclusion that he's a class act.

Stop feeding him.

Very true and a good way to look at it actually EP.

16 Sep 2019 23:36:45
About 2~3 years ago I said he was my favourite player of the premier league era and had more than a few thumbs down (I do miss that feature) . For a couple of years we've heard how underrated he is, but you can't say that anymore, there is so much press about him.

17 Sep 2019 09:04:14
I actually agree with Walter for once. if we brought in Kane we’d come second for sure. with bobby though we’ll be winning the league!

16 Sep 2019 22:51:21
Time and again we have seen how our game suddenly changes the moment Firmino comes on, if he's not starting. The team goes up a gear and our attacks become more confident and purposeful. What further proof do you need? Even Ian Wright (yes, the Arsenal player) says Firmino is the best 9.5 in the World; nobody better at what he does.

17 Sep 2019 14:34:58
Ignore Walter . Last season he thought arsenal would finish above us and thinks we should have bought butland instead of Allison. No reasoning with some people.
