I honestly thought he was going to miss that peno. 

Me too. I was just a bag of nerves.

Didn’t take long for the post-season tabloid free-for-all to get started this year.

 

According to AS, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester United (!) are ready to pounce following Salah's refusal to discuss his future immediately after the final, with the catalyst being his unhappiness following a bust-up with Klopp earlier in the season.

He's at the best club he can possibly be at and he'll be better next season too. With one trophy in the bag he'll be aware of what he can now achieve. As they all will.

It gets better - They’ve given themselves a convenient out in the form of his friendship with Mane, who allegedly signed a new contract out of the belief that Salah was staying and might just convince him to do so,

Mane hates him, never passes him the ball.

I don't think he will leave this summer, but he is the most likely of our front three imo to go in the next 2-3 years. He knows how marketable he is and with Messi/ronaldo less marketable in the coming years, he could become the main man in that regard. He could demand a huge contract and FSG might say sod off take the crazy money from Real and buy 2-3 top players to make up for him going. Jurgen won't want anyone to get above their station. Having said that he knows how much we love him and the parade would be a great reminder for him as well.

 

Mane loves it here and Bobby clearly does too especially with Allison and Fabinho here as well. They will look at Phil and see all isn't rosey on the other side of the garden.

 

We are one of the biggest clubs in the world and will be challenging for all the big trophies for the next few years. It's nice to be at that point again.

I've seen so many stories on AS that it is hard to take them seriously. Have they reported on Elvis Presley working in a chippy in Wigan yet?

Salah clearly is a very competitive and driven player, and it seems the more he does, the more driven he appears, but alongside that he isn’t a flash Harry, he is grounded and humble.

 

he reminds a little of Torres, perhaps, and in hindsight and in reality, you can’t blame Torres for feeling he wasn’t going to achieve great things with us.

 

i don’t see Salah wanting to go anywhere while we continue to be strong and challenge for trophies - basically as long as klopp is here.

 

i can’t believe there is anyone in our first team squad that plays even half regularly that would want to be anywhere else right now.

 

even the youngsters in the fringe - the likes of Wilson - who will clearly want to be playing and may feel their chances lie elsewhere must have hesitancy, having seen Gomez and Trent given chances under klopp and bloom as they have.

Players and manager would have to be mental to leave us now. Especially after seeing the scenes in Madrid and for the homecoming parade.

 

It won’t get bigger anywhere else, it won’t mean more anywhere else, they won’t become more of an icon among fans all over the world for the rest of their days anywhere else, and the one which ticks the most important box...we can genuinely compete with anyone again.

 

You’ll always get the odd one who wants to go for the cachet of the big two in Spain, wants a more familiar/sunny lifestyle or similar, but other than that this nucleus will keep itself together when a club of this scale, size and global support has just thrown the monkey sat on its back for a long time off a cliff and is entering a natural cycle of success.

 

Even those pondering the above will have Coutinho as a living emblem of how the grass isn’t always greener. Other than Virg and Alisson, that may prove his greatest lasting legacy to us.

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha. With the exception of Evertonians there can’t be a more desperate fan base than the Mancs.

https://news.vice.com/en_us/article/qv7ev7/mo-salah-has-singlehandedly-reduced-islamophobia-in-liverpool

 

Mohamed Salah is fantastic on the football pitch — but he might be doing even more off it. 

It seems that Liverpool F.C.’s star forward, who scored 22 Premier League goals this season and helped his club with the trophy over the weekend, has literally, singlehandedly, shifted how large swaths of Liverpudlians think about Islam — and driven down hate crimes as a result. 

A study from Stanford University’s Immigration Policy Lab found that since the uber-popular English soccer club signed the Muslim Egyptian national in June 2017, hate crimes fell 18.9 percent in Merseyside County relative to a synthetic control that estimated what the rate would’ve been. No other type of crime experienced a similar effect.

“This decline was more extreme than we would expect based on chance alone, and the decrease in hate crimes was more pronounced than the decrease in any other crime category,” the authors of the study wrote. “Taken together, the evidence points to Salah’s rise in prominence causing a decrease in hate crimes in Liverpool F.C.’s home county.”

The study also found that Liverpool fans halved their rate of anti-Muslim tweets compared with other top-flight English clubs — a drop from 7.2 percent of all tweets about Muslims to 3.4 percent. The study also noted that Liverpool fans have even sung positive chants about Salah that reference his Muslim identity, calling him “a gift from Allah.”

The study looked at police data, 15 million tweets from soccer fans and took a survey of more than 8,000 Liverpool fans. The researchers found that Salah’s public persona as a celebrity — he’s known as an agreeable, charismatic family man — has worked to shift Islamophobic perceptions as he talks openly and publicly about his faith.

“By watching games, post-game interviews, promotional videos released by the club, and content on Salah’s social media pages, fans are exposed to rich information about Salah’s life on and off the field,” the researchers wrote. “Viewers see what a Muslim prayer looks like, perhaps for the first time, when Salah scores.”

In short: the researchers found the “Salah effect” was real — that a celebrity from a stigmatized group can actually reduce prejudice toward that group. So yes, Salah’s two consecutive Golden Boot awards — given to the EPL’s top scorer — are impressive, but it’s hard to beat the off-field impact.

He said that OGS was an absolute legend when he was growing up in Egypt and he could only dream of one day experiencing the managerial genius of the little spunk goblin.

I think Salah saying that we'll fight for the Premier League title again next season after the Wolves game was all the ominous foreshadowing you need to know that his future lies away from Anfield and probably at Manchester United.

    • A couple of days later, the Mancs are in the news offering said brat free tickets and a stadium tour as a "loyal supporter".   I really didn't like the original story. It really felt to me like something our marketing department had dreamt up to make us look all virtuous. "Here Jurgen, look at this kid's letter. I'll draft a reply, just sign it will you? Then I'll make sure it makes the press. OK? "Jawohl. Das ist ein gutten idea."  *Mancs offer kid Old Trafford stadium tour and free tickets* "Donner und blitzen vass ist diss? Diese Manc schweinhunds haven gott von uber on me gottdammit."   That horse bolted over a year ago Dave. He's a waste of time and hope. He's the modern-day Harry Kewell only more fragile. If he were a goalkeeper he'd be a pre-Kiev Karius without the appearances. I'm afraid I think Jurgen's perseverance with both Karius and now Keita isn't amongst his finest decisions.   Hahahahahaaaaah "...none of  City's players has won it." You idiot Sterling, "has" not "have". What a dick. Everyone knows it's "has". *Looks round proudly*  *Keeps looking* *waits a bit longer* *shuffles off disappointed*  
    • Steven Gerrard has spoken about the satisfaction in the development of Jordan Henderson as he stands on the brink of lifting Liverpool’s first league trophy in three decades.

      Following in the footsteps of one of Liverpool’s greatest ever players was never an easy task, let alone someone like the former Sunderland man who already had plenty of doubters regarding whether he had what it took to succeed at a top club.

      While there have been ups and downs there is little doubt that the skipper has come into his own and is a fine all-round midfielder and leader of men.

      Speaking to former teammate Danny Murphy for a wide ranging piece in the Mail on Sunday, Gerrard said Henderson was prepared to work his backside off for the good of the team.

      "We both know there are players who are "at it" every day and I appreciated Jordan's power and fitness by training with him. 

      “Some players play for themselves, Jordan does the dirty running, grappling for second balls, 12 or 13km Saturday and Wednesday, again and again. 

      “Teams can't function at Liverpool's level without a cog like Jordan Henderson. He's obviously going be a Premier League winner. 

      “I look at him and think: good for you.”

      Gerrard recalls a time when he had a heart to heart conversation with Henderson a few years ago when his future looked anything but certain.

      "I remember a chat with Jordan in LA a while ago and he wasn't sure whether he was coming or going at the club. 

      “I remember saying to him don't give up on Liverpool, you'll be fine.   "I knew what he had inside and that he would get there.   "You know with certain people.   "He has lifted the European Cup above his head.

      “He has that confidence now."  

      Gerrard also touched on the respect and pride he has for one of his contemporaries in Frank Lampard for taking on the Chelsea job under difficult circumstances and his wish to rekindle that rivalry on the touchline in the years ahead.

      But for know, his greatest admiration is for the man currently in the Anfield hot seat. 

      “Klopp has this stature.   "When he walks in a room, it's "Whoa,"

      "If he was your manager you'd think "I am running here".   "This Liverpool team are monsters and it's come from him the moment he arrived.

      “For the players to have that level of respect for their manager in a modern dressing room is special. 

      “You can see everyone is tuned in, physically and mentally. 

      “To get that from your players is a tough nut to crack.   "And I sense Liverpool is growing again around the world.”

    • Just keeping the new boss happy.
    • Sorry boys, you know I love you like you are  like my own wayward surrogate sons who are in prison for murder, but you’re being bellends here. No keeper, not even Alisson, would have been able to get back to stop the Southampton goal. It was that quick. To use it to criticise one of our own is a bit shit.
    • Timo Werner has continued his public admiration of Liverpool by saying that there are many reasons why the Reds would be the perfect club for him.

      The German striker scored his 27th goal for RB Leipzig in all competitions this season in their 5-0 rout of Schalke on Saturday as they maintain the pressure on Bayern Munich atop the Bundesliga.

      After the victory Werner kept up the charm offensive for his prospective new employers in the same week where he said he was honoured to be linked with a club like Liverpool.

      Sky Sports reported Werner as saying:

      "Last year, until I extended my contract, it was always Bayern Munich [that I was linked with]. 

      “Now Liverpool has come up through the media and through our game in England.

      “You have there the best coach in the world with Jurgen Klopp.

      “There are many things that would suggest that my style of play might be a good fit there.”  

      However, he was also careful to stay in the moment with his current team.

      “We have so much to do with Leipzig.

      “You can see we won against Tottenham, but we also have a second leg. 

      “It's hard to think about where to play next year if you want to step on the gas here and now."
