A fit, motivated Sturridge (I know, I know) would still be a better option off the bench than Origi. 

A fit motivated Louie Spence would be too!

Sturridge was a very good striker, and scored some fabulous goals for us, before something in his head, and other parts of his body, changed/broke and that meant he was rarely deemed fit enough to play afterwards.

His partnership with Luis Suarez was electric but too short lived.

It’s a crying shame he didn’t have more of a career than he has, but his best days are gone, and even if he were to play on a pay per game basis, I doubt he’d add to the squad we have currently, sadly.

Yep I agree with this. Even if we get 4/5 games out of him fit off the bench he's better than Origi. 

 

Mind you, I'm still reeling from us letting Lee Griffiths go to Dundee on loan and not nabbing him 

Origi is a disgrace really he doesn’t even make an effort surely they can dock him wages or something. Watched a thing on LFCTV a while back Firmino and Alisson guessing players names on paper on their foreheads, Alissons turn and Firmino just says ‘ Lazy ‘ and Alisson says. ‘ Divock ‘

Have people forgotten this is the player Klopp (you know the manager who loves all his players and will always try to find a way to praise them) called out as a shithouse?

For me, Sturridge is one of the most natural goalscorers Ive ever seen in a red shirt. I dont get the general reticence towards him. Id take Sturridge on a strict pay as you play contract and not mega money either especially if Origi ships out to Turkey. As far as Im aware he wouldnt break any quotas for the PL or CL as he'd qualify as home grown.


Did you not see;

 

Rush

Fowler

Owen

Torres

Suarez?

Yes, of course I did. I also saw Roger Hunt, St John, Keegan and The King. What's your point, that Sturridge isnt a natural goalscorer or you just have a dislike of the lad because he picked up injuries?

That he was never a more natural goal scorer than any of those players listed. 
 

Thought that was obvious.

Well then you're fucking blind and cant read because I said 'one of' and even Klopp acknowledge what a player he was when fit. And he didnt even insinuate Sturridge was a 'shit house' either.

Well ‘one of’ when you’re in a bracket below at least 5 players isn’t saying shit. 
 

There’s a difference between pain and real

pain???

Im sure Jurgen was frustrated at Sturridge's fitness as were most of us. I think Jurgen was wrong to call out one of his players like that, perhaps it was his frustration showing through. That doesnt equate to him saying Sturridge was a shit house though.

 

Just because his body couldnt handle the pressure of the PL doesnt mean he isnt a natural goalscorer. Plenty of other players have found their bodies incapable of standing up to the rigours of the PL, Dan Agger is another. Doesnt take away from him being an excellent defender though.

What would truly warm the cockles would be another couple of years discussion in which one side of the debate pretends people who don’t think Sturridge’s fitness is reliable enough - imagine still having to type an understatement as enormous as that about the lad in 2021, because people are fucking tedious enough to want to do this again - lack the same rarified eye for spotting footballing talent or somehow despise him as a man.

That would be an unbelievably cheap deal. Nothing on a transfer fee and probably nothing on wages either!

Everyone was frustrated with his fitness, some even just thought he was a lazy shithouse cunt. 
 

When has Klopp ever come remotely close to saying anything like that about any other player? 
 

Sturridge was a very good forward, he was exactly what we wanted and needed to start with and was excellent for us. 
 

He was never a ‘natural finisher’ though, certainly not the way I’d deem that phrase anyway.
