    Has 11 goals and 9 assists this season in the premiership which to me is a success, If Klopp does get a striker would he be as effective on the wings?

    He's come into a little bit of form the last couple of games where we've really needed him, which is great, he's won us four points, four massive points. For me he needs to be getting within a goal or two of fifteen goals for the season for the position he plays (and the way he plays it), if he ended the season with the tally as it is today i'd be disappointed, but I've got a feeling we'll see a couple more from him over the next 5 matches.

    Some proper cringe editing on that video that showed about 4 of his goals lol.

    very good player - underrated for his game intelligence too.

    think with better players around him he'll thrive even more.

    Needs to add a few more goals to his game. He's terrific and so important to our play - so frustrating when he misses chances though. Generally ineffective out wide, so I don't want to see him shunted out there.

    He's also had some completely pointless efforts out there too. Id like to think this might be the new normal but I'm not sure I'd bank on it just yet.

    Should have har more assists if players around him was more clinical.... but guess others har more assists if he was more clinical too. Damn we have wasted some very nice chances this season...

    I think he's a perfect number 10 if we had the right kind of hardworking striker in front of him. That vid didn't really show how much he knits our front 6 together. He's a really ace player.

    Yeah I've thought this too. Or a clinical finisher who makes good runs. Originally I thought he'd be great behind a fit and firing Sturridge. We all know how that (didn't) turn out.

    Getting over our heads on him slightly - yes he has scored two very important goals but like most of you - I wish he had done that in some of the January games.  But also to see how great a player he is - ask yourself - who would want to buy him at 30M plus ?

    Who would not buy him at 30M?? Spurs would, easy. And he's only 25.

    To put things into perspective, Ox is reportedly going to cost us 35M, and he is not even half the player Bobby is.

    Ighalo was reported to be subject to a £38mill bid, Deeney £30mill, so yes, he'd definitely be worth more than £30mill

    He was excellent on Sunday but like Coutinho he needs to find a more consistent middle ground between those 5-6/10 and 9/10 performances.

    11 goals and 9 assists, based on stats alone find me another player we can get from a major club in Europe that has similar figures we can get for £30M? The only other player I can think of is Gylfi Sigurdsson and thats only because Swansea are getting relegated.

    30m? That's Benteke money. Don't be silly, he's worth way more than that.

    All players miss chances. Take a look at old reds games on youtube to see how many Kenny and Rushie missed.

    If one more person calls that player Ox or The Ox they will find a severed horse's head in their bed.
