So let’s sell Jota then if he’s only a championship winner 🤦🏻‍♂️.
Whoever Klopp picks I’ll support and back 100%. The only stats that should count today are this seasons when it comes to selection not trophies or goals won in previous seasons.
Or should we start Rush as he scored a couple of goals also and won a few trophies in years gone by.

06 Nov 2020 16:25:06
What’s your point?

06 Nov 2020 16:34:52
Mark his point is he is belittling Jota’s record and achievements because people have dared to suggest he might start on Sunday and don’t share the same opinion as him on his favourite player Bobby. For me I don’t personally care who starts on Sunday as long as we don’t lose the game as it’s our biggest game of the season.

06 Nov 2020 16:42:30
I'm more interested in Jota's Liverpool record.

06 Nov 2020 16:51:53
What makes more sense is to see who is in better form, in recent times, and then make the decision for starter accordingly. You can't forget, nor disregard, career statistics. I value Bobby's contribution very highly to this LFC team. But if Klopp decides to start with Jota, based on current form, I wouldn't argue either. Somehow, I don't think scoring goals is the only and top priority for Klopp, for that position. There's always been higher pressure, and greater expectation, from Mane and Salah to deliver the goals. Part of the tactical setup.

{Ed025's Note - you have 4 forwards vying for 3 spots ArAy which is a nice problem to have for klopp, bobby has gone off the boil a bit but so has mane in recent games and who,s to say jota wont take sadio,s place?, its his more natural position on the left and it would still leave you with a very strong forward line mate..

06 Nov 2020 16:59:59
100% spot on Irish.

06 Nov 2020 17:03:46
I would start Jota but Firmino has a point to prove and he should be chomping at the bit. As you say massive game so whoever plays needs to be bang at it.

06 Nov 2020 17:12:51
Ed025 the voice of reason!

{Ed025's Note - cheers waqas, perm any 3 from 4 and i dont think the team is any weaker, games are coming thick and fast and all of them will get game time mate, if you add in injuries it may be the case that 4 is not enough... but you are far better off in that department than any other team..

06 Nov 2020 17:16:38
Why are people belittling one player or the other? They are both Liverpool players, support them both or support another team!

06 Nov 2020 17:26:35
Djimi troare 1 champions league medal
Cannavaro 0 champions league medals

Stats are meaningless without context

As for bobby and Jota both are good players and we finally have depth up front, can we just enjoy it? Whoever klopp picks we know the opposition won’t be happy and that’s what counts imo.

06 Nov 2020 18:02:56
Why am I seeing this comparison or whatever between Bobby and Jota? Leave this to the folks on twitter, BBC hys, FB, insta, tinder or whatever there are. Us here are way way better than this.

{Ed025's Note - its only a discussion point haizan, lots of people are locked in the house and this is their only point of contact for some mate, i will discuss most things mate except quantum physics and vegetarianism.. :)

06 Nov 2020 18:32:04
This is the best scenario we could have and it’s called healthy competition. It’s the a great way to push a player to he’s absolute best. Nothing wrong with it at all. If Jota start we are behind him 100% if he get injured bobby comes in and the same for him. Everyone’s happy 👍🏻.

06 Nov 2020 18:34:12
As long as Gini starts.

06 Nov 2020 18:42:35
And here it is. I’ve heard it for 3 years, mindless so called Liverpool fans arguing over who’s better between Mane and Salah. Loving one and slating the other. Now it’s Bobby and Jota. They all play for Liverpool For Ducks sake!

06 Nov 2020 18:47:45
Ed025, I actually think Firmino will still start. For the important games Klopp has a tendency to go with the tried and proven. Yes Firmino is off form, but then he'll get substituted in the second ha;f if he is ineffective.

{Ed025's Note - im sure klopp knows what his best formation for the city game ArAy and we can all second guess, i think the forward line whichever he picks is the least of his worries mate, the defence and their performance will decide the outcome of this one i think but its only one game, the league will not be won or lost this weekend and there will be a lot of twists and turns yet so i would say just try and enjoy the ride..

06 Nov 2020 20:08:14
Up the veggies Ed025.

{Ed025's Note - i cant be doing with them barry, every one to their own i suppose but carrots have feelings too mate.. :)

06 Nov 2020 21:00:43
When I clean and chop my carrots ed025, they tend not to scream and struggle for dear life. You brought up vegetarianism, not me 😄.

{Ed025's Note - we all have our crosses to bear burkey, i shop in aldi so kevin the carrot is very dear to my heart mate.. :)

06 Nov 2020 22:13:11
Albert Einstein was a huge quirk fan. discuss.

06 Nov 2020 23:34:28
We complained when we had no forward cover and now we have it we complain about which one should play. It’s comical it really is.

06 Nov 2020 23:48:17
I was a bit emotional, and now you just make my day. Oh Ed25.

{Ed025's Note - glad to hear it haizan mate..

07 Nov 2020 07:37:41
Silly point that. Jota was 19 or 20 years old when he was playing in the championship so those numbers are very impressive. He's been a couple of years in the premier league in his early 20s so still just a prospect. When salah mane firmino Henderson VVD wijnaldum Robertson allison etc were aged 20-23 they had not yet been anywhere close to star quality. So stop these baseless comparison that don't mean anything at all.

07 Nov 2020 23:57:50
Robbie, those stats mean absolutely nothing as they lack context completely. We have four outstanding forwards to choose from. Can we not just b happy about this instead of engaging in this charade?
