If you want your speakers to work properly and/or prevent future failure, then YES, you must take care of the goop coating the board. Focus on where it covers a component with exposed leads/wires. For example, the goop that's slathered all over the jumpers and the big resistor (located between the two, big caps--bottom, middle circled area). Focus on areas like that. Don't worry about the stuff that's on top of the caps.
