It’s been approximately three years since Liverpool last played a game, and the world went into self-distanced isolation. What’s that you say, it’s been 10 days? Hoo boy. While there is a lot of uncertainty, anxiety, and downright scary stuff perpetually popping up in the news and on social media, it seemed like a good time to bring a little levity to the interwebs. There seem to only be a few things that will make people smile these days: Healthcare for all, universal basic income, and Roberto Firmino goal celebrations. Here at TLO towers, we can only provide you with a little Bobby Digital to brighten your day.

As you all well know, Firmino is not just known for his work rate, no-look goals, and metal ties. He’s got some of the best goal celebrations in the game today. Check out the list below and vote for your favorite, or if I missed one, add it in the comments below!


The Forward Roll
Firmino, ever the athlete, displays a nice tuck on his roll. He does get a bit sloppy as he comes out of his roll and his feet come apart. Still, a nice save on the finish, popping up to his feet smoothly.

The Gun Hands
While we do not condone gun violence, we know Bobby is shooting love to the Liverpool fans

Samba Gun Hands
Adding a little Brazilian flair to his gun hands celebration

The Fancy Footwork Dance
Bobby just has that samba swag

That Other Dance
I don’t know what to say about this one other than enjoy

Brazilian Baby Shark
Tubarão bebê doo doo doo doo

Flexing With Virgil
This is just heart eyes emoji

The Eye Patch
Possibly the most topical goal celebration ever. A hilarious nod to Jan Vertonghen “accidentally” trying to gouge his eye out just a few days earlier.

The Spinning Kick
The pièce de résistance. Not only is the form fantastic from Bobby on his spinning kicks, you also have the hilarity of Sadio Mané doing his best, and failing miserably, to copy the kicks. This was an instant classic.


Now we want to hear from you. Pick the goal celebration you like the best. Was your favorite not listed? Add a gif in the comments. And as always, a reminder that anyone visiting on Apple News or Google AMP who wishes to vote and can’t see the poll can make it visible by navigating to the front page of The Liverpool Offside and loading the story from there.
