    I was having a debate with my friend today and I argued that Firmino will eventually be just as important to Liverpool as Coutinho - opinion?

    I'm just messing, honestly I'd rather talk football than turn in to The Shed End

    I think that will all depend on how Firmino settles in.
    So far he's had a tough start and i don't think he realises just how little time you get on the ball against certain teams.
    He needs to be more aware of the players around him like Coutinho is, although I'm not worried about his ability to score a goal if he gets a chance (he'll miss a sitter against United now I've said that...)

    Overall, Coutinho is our star man and i don't see Firmino having as great an impact, however if he can form a good partnership with the former, he could have a great season too.
    Perhaps with Coutinho suspended against United, Firmino may step up? Who knows..

    Lol at Giroud > Anyone

    Shhh you'll upset all the Arsenal fans who overrate their players.

    I'll have you know that there was no one better than Giroud in the market. He has world class link up play!! who needs a cliche striker who scores goals.

    My memory of Liverpool specifics is purposefully shaky, how did Coutinho do when he moved to Liverpool? (Say, the first 10/15 games or so).

    I was at the Chile/Brazil game at the Emirates and it was pretty dire until Firmino came on, I was pretty annoyed you lot got him, I do think he'll be good for you.

    Coutinho wasn't even a nailed on starter for us until a season ago - i think he was rotation during the SAS campaign and it's only fairly recently that he's stepped up and shown his true talent.

    Firmino himself is highly rated and he clearly has great skill.
    It's just a question of whether he can adapt to the new league and display it to help us this season.
    I mean when you have two young Brazillian AMs behind your striker, what can go wrong?

    Would it be fair to say that Firmino is going to be deployed as the more attacking of the two? By that I mean: Coutinho will move the ball about the pitch and chip in with shots/assists himself, but Firmino will be more of a second-striker type player?

    I hope so.
    I feel like playing Coutinho further back is better; he can pick the ball up deep, go past a few guys if necessary and then look for options.
    When we play him further forward he always looks to shoot and although he's scored a few beauties, it normally takes him way too many attempts in a match.

    I'd rather have Coutinho assisting more and Firmino scoring more if a possible set-up allows such a thing.

    Whilst they didn't play together...





    it's probably a good job they didn't.

    Summary: Firmino is bound to flop because he's Brazilian and so is Anderson. Transitivity mate

    I always assumed Coutinho's willingness to take long shots was actually one of his better qualities. Your squad seems to suffer the same way ours does - too few people willing to shoot from outside the box. We have Ramsey, Wilshere, Cazorla and Ox, but everyone else seems scared to smack it. Your squad has Henderson, Coutinho, Milner and Clyne, and Firmino looks confident enough to take a long shot.

    Problem for us is that these long shots come at the wrong time, and rarely do any of them go in unless it's Alexis

    His ability to score screamers is a gift but his inconsistency in doing so detracts his creative ability.
    Many times he takes an unnecessary long shot when he could've played somebody in. It's great he has the confidence to shoot but sometimes he needs to remember that his job primarily is to create, not to score wonder goals.

    In our performances so far this season we've struggled to create clear cut chances. We need our midfield players to be adding to our creativity so our strikers can do their job and score goals.

    Very true, I guess we'll see how both players do now they have a more than half-decent striker in front of them.
