Mohamed Salah

Recommended Posts

The idea that some Reds might be happy for Mo to leave blows my mind. Who on earth would replace him? I'd love to hear REALISTIC suggestions of players of the same quality that we could get.

Its a bit(no pun intended) unfair on Suarez as he almost carried a whole team while sitting out a few suspensions along the way. He also played with Mignolet in goal and Skrtel at centre half! Mo has been brilliant though and its been fantastic that we have been able to turn around Rodgers disasterous last season so relatively quickly. 

He also had Gerrard and Coutinho providing assists. Salah has gone 18 months without that kind of midfield service. A lot of his goals -- like on Saturday -- are of his own making.

I hope he stays because we need him - and more - if we are to continue next season as successfully as this and last.

Gerrard was a deep lying midfielder in that team and Coutinho,well,who were we talking about? Both have been brilliant for us,just that Mo's tenure has been more effective. Suarez was like a loanee,we knew he wouldn't hang around too long while Salah has spent a good while and will hopefully continue to do so.

I absolutely adore Salah, but Christ I’m not having that. 
 

yes, Suarez played with Gerrard and Coutinho, and yes, Salah hasn’t played alongside such creative midfielders, but Suarez was the epitome of “a lot of his goals were of his own making”.

Yes you're right - I should clarify. Suares was an ungodly force of nature and for sheer out-of-nothingness was probably the most skillful player we've ever had. But his upturn to that next-level did coincide with Coutinho/Sturridge arriving, and with Coutinho/Gerrard playing those kind of sumptuous De Bruyne-through balls week in week out. Players like Skrtel & Mignolet were obviously very poor, but Suarez did play with a front 5 in of Suarez/Sturridge/Coutinho/Sterling/Gerrard -- which boasted obscene talent and really should have won the league.

 

We don't really have that midfield-creator capability in the team now (I guess why most have a creative-midfielder on their wishlist), although we do have 2 full-backs whose quality is as good as almost any midfielders to have played in the league, so apples and oranges. I do think its fair to say though that the current midfield is typically set up to harry the opposition and get the ball forward as quickly as possible, and usually we then do our best work with Mane/Salah from there.

It's utter madness, isnt it? I suspect it's the anti FSG crowd or, those who think we're signing Mbappe in the summer. We arent and would never do so. Would Mo want to move on next season? Who knows, even Gerrard was on the verge of moving twice.

The one where Mane won the ball pressing?

To be honest, Saturday was a perfect example of Salah making his own goal. He receives the ball 3 yards behind where he's running midflight. By the time he's stopped and gathered it, there's 3 Bournemouth defenders between him and the goal & 2 Bournemouth players rushing at him. He swivels and plants it first time in the corner of the goal, probably the only place he's going to score from in that position. Aguero aside, you're probably not going to find another player in the league who scores a goal like that, as instinctively as that, on Saturday. I'm sure there's a GIF somewhere, or its at 40 s in this video.

And then fucked up the pass to Salah? 

He doesn't like passing it to Salah - he probably thought it was Firmino and then realised a little to late.

No, the one where Mane totally fucked up his pass, but the genius of Salah still gave us a goal.

Haha yeah.

The only reason he’s let that photo go out today is so Klopp knows he’s following instructions and wearing gloves when touching the pumps.
