Ed1 you make a good point mate about Bobby knitting everything together, my point is though how do we keep him in the team as his goal return is poor, are you saying we need more from our left winger or from our midfield?

{Ed001's Note - from the team as a whole, and I include him in that. We will need to look to replace him as well, but right now we only have a replacement for either Mane or Salah in the squad, so the choice has to be which of those goes, if someone does.}

Agree0 Disagree0

So if Salah or Mane go do we buy a replacement for them or play jota there and get a replacement for Bobby that would offer more goals?

{Ed001's Note - that depends on what the options are that are available. We have Jota to slot in anyway, so we can look to replace Bobby and the other of Salah and Mane with the money and see which we can get at the right price that is the right fit.}

I agree we missed him against real jota does link the play like him Jota was a brick wall against real with heavy touches ect we needs a striker who has similar qualities as bobby like good touch movement and who can press like he used to as he doesn't press as much now

But we need a striker who can finish as bobby is the worse finisher this season we had in a long time.

If we are selling Mane, then we need not one but two forwards anyways. One, who would directly replace Mane and be an option to rotate with Salah and Jota (Neto/ Barnes/ Thuram) and a long term Bobby replacement.
Makes no sense to sign an out and out No.9 especially with Salah and Jota already there as inverted forwards.

I know we say we missed Bobby against Real but that’s hindsight. Did his pressing from the front affect the results against Wba, Newcastle, Southampton, City, Burnley, Everton, Chelsea, Utd, Leicester, Brighton and Fulham. I’m not saying Bobby was to blame for those results but some are making out like we wouldn’t have lost to Real if he had played. Bobby’s a good player but he has been a major part of this seasons results along with the players that are taking the lions share of criticism.

Salah will probably get our player of the season but even his performances have been below what we’ve seen from him in the past. Like Jota though he seems to still be able to find the net.

I agree Jk none of the front 3 have performed to their best level. But Salah still gets his goals. Over a season you can’t trust Bobby, especially not to score goals. So we would need two plays to come in if Mane goes. It’s going to be a really interesting summer.

10 Apr 2021 11:46:56
It’s going to be interesting to see ed001 if one of mane or salah do go to see how the club choose to use the money. Like you’ve said the club need to look to refresh.

Mane is my favourite current LFC player (with VVD) but if he can get us decent cash we should probably sell him as Salah delivers 20 goals per season even when he's not firing on all cylinders. Jota can cover Mane but we really need a number 9 who will be in the box to put away the crosses delivered from Robbo and Trent. If we can get a number 9 who is good in the air, presses ok and is good at shooting we should snap one up this summer. I would still keep Firmino as cover and move him into midfield in certain games. Kane at 27 and proven in the Premier League would probably be my choice.

10 Apr 2021 14:21:36
People who judge Firmino on his goal return are showing how much they know about football.
And anyone suggesting Kane as a replacement simply doesn't watch how we play.

JK23, I don’t think anyone is saying we would have won had Bobbie played. You are the one saying that. Had Bobbie played, would that have stopped TAA, Gini, Keita and Jota from having shockers? Would that have stopped us from being flat in the second half? The answer is No.

We missed Bobbie vs RM and no amount of listing past games where he may or may not have played well, is going to change that. We are talking about what happened at Madrid, and not what happened vs “insert opposition here” in the past. Oh and btw, Bobbie was very good today before he was taken off vs Villa.

I actually lost count of the amount of times you contradicted yourself in that post Red Meister.
