Fighting like beavers.

Don't see how Fekir and Shaqiri are comparable, two different players. But we simply had to buy someone for the forward line. Shaqiri played a bit from the start when we went to two pivots in midfield and Bobby dropped deeper in a role Fekir would play more often (either as a #10 or false 9). In the end, we didn't really get Fekir's replacement but simply used Bobby (he's our key player and I hope we already know by now what Klopp wants from his striker or #10, certain players will never get game time there, it's more fan's imagination) at times in a deeper role. Sturridge tried to do it a little bit (like Wolves away in the cup and a few other games/periods in games), but it didn't work. Origi covered that role behind Salah in the last period in Madrid (was funny watching Klopp going mental over Salah's non existant defensive play when we were on the ropes).Last summer Fekir was supposed to come in as that playmaker but due to his injury he didn't come in. Did we buy Shaqiri as his replacement or are we still interested in bringing someone in to fill that role.
