I was pointing out you can't just say a good player will still provide the contributions despite the context of how good the team around them is. You can't assume that Suarez wasn't great because he only scored 11 league goals his first full season with us. You also can't assume Lemar is bad and ignore the bigger picture of the changes at Monaco. If Klopp is still interested there is a reason. It's also a position that isn't as reflective in goals and assists when it comes to quality as well. I don't know if we are still interested but if we are the stats shouldn't be the main focus.Unlike trading in exchanges where there are nothing else other than charts and numbers, I think football has more visual for you to inspect than just numbers. Put Suarez in Championship and his stats will blow Messi's off the planet, and that's stats for you. Watching them do their thing, the artistry of their work on the pitch would probably shows more than just the number of touches he had in the opposing team's half. Unless you are talking about someone who knows fuck all about the sport, then he had to based on numbers to see how good a player or team really are.
