I’ve posted this in a match thread but I think there’s bad blood between him and Sadio. Watch the goal celebrations, they barely acknowledge each other. This can’t be helping. 

Interesting to see how some of our fans have turned professional body language experts. It is rare to for anyone to be great mates with every single colleague at work. People just continue to look for every bit of nonsense to fan the flames. You want them kissing or what? There were other players who celebrated that goal with Salah with barely a little pat on the back too. And there are times when both have celebrated with each other in a more enthusiastic fashion.

 

In the same game, both players combined well as they very often do. Salah played a brilliant reverse pass to Mane which only didn't result in a goal because of poor control. They might not be best of mates but they still function well together.

Put Klopp in charge of Suarez and we’d have won the league. Love Mo but pound for pound Suarez is the best player I’ve seen in red shirt.

Yep even better than Barnes.

Nah. Barnes was unreal, absolutely unplayable for three seasons and didn't have to resort to any underhand tactics. He also had to put up with a lot more on and off the pitch than Suarez ever did. I'm aware that shouldn't impact their ability as a player, but it's hard to look beyond some of Suarez antics when it comes down to thinking of who is the best ever player we've had. 

 

If it's down to just ability then it's a definitely a close run thing, but there's a lot more to it than that in being thought of as the best ever.

Yeah it’s close, Barnes is a great man a legend but when it comes down to durability, raw skill and absolute will to win it has to be the one man army that Luis was.

There are loads that have done more for the club, obviously, but Suarez was a better footballer than all of them.

 

He's arguably the best footballer to have ever played professional football in England.

 

Imagine if he'd been quick.

Better than Ronaldo?

He's the one I was thinking of when I wrote that.

 

I think he was a better player in his time in the UK than Ronaldo was when he was here. Ronaldo improved a lot at Real Madrid.

 

Also, having Tevez and Rooney doing all the donkey work, as well as providing phenomenal service, was leagues ahead of anything Suarez had. Even when we did actually have a good team and he wasn't playing upfront with a 12 year old Sterling and 13 year old Suso.

 

That United side of 2008/2009 was fucking brilliant.

I reckon Suarez is a better footballer, but Ronaldo's freak athletic ability more than makes up for any deficit in talent (not that there's much).

Agreed, but that freak athletic ability was at its peak between about 27 and 31/32 at Real Madrid. Absurd speed, strength, and jumping ability. Football has never seen anything like it.

But he wasnt and he scored a lot less goals and get fewer assists than Salah do, even if Salah is a winger and Suarez a striker.

Did someone say Liverpool's best pound for pound signing?

 

£33,000. £50 a week salary.

 

Three leagues, a European cup, two UEFA cups and an FA cup.

And then funded the signing of Kenny leaving a 57k profit.

 

Moneyballing before those Boston fucks had even heard of it.

Suarez was twice the player Salah is. And he didn't need penalties to get those numbers.

Suarez was banned at least 3 times for playing for Liverpool and missed 12 games for his world cup bite, 10 for biting Ivanovic and 8 was it for his run in with evra. That's 30 games, 8 shy of a full PL season. Fantastic player but a liability.

 

So no, overall his worth as a player isnt better than Mo. In my opinion.

Yes, but presumably you don't watch football through the prism of Microsoft Excel.

The players are being told to keep the celebrations tuned down because of covid. Loads of goals aren't being celebrated and loads of players have talked about the impact of VAR is holding them back on celebrating. I don't know why people worry too much about all this kind of thing. 

 

And as you rightly point out, we have all worked with fellas we're not that keen on anyway. It doesn't stop any of us doing the job or even make us think about changing job.

Great to see us making sure we

dont breach the coronavirus guidelines by stopping scoring altogether.

@Code sit down before reading on.

 

Salah has been fucking shit, shit against Everton, shit against Brighton, shit against Utd, shit against Burnley and WBA, shit against City. He's been as bad as the others bar West Ham when he played well. He was good at Spurs too but so where the others. At least Manè is involved and working hard when he's shit, Bobby is kicking the ground before shooting but its still more than Salah on his shit days. Salah is just hatching waiting to bump up his numbers. He should be played as a center forward because he's not putting the work in for a winger and is damaging the rest of the side.

 

By shit I mean I had to check the Burnley and WBA team sheets to confirm if he even played, Brighton would have the same but for the early miss.

Sadio involved and working hard when he's been shit but Mo's been shit, despite scoring goals?! Dont think so mate. Sadio's been stinking the gaff out as much as Bobby.

Mane is more involved and tries hard, but doesn't have the quality to make things happen on his own. Salah can be more transparent, but can score goals out of nothing. That's the tale of their seasons. Right now, you'd rather have Salah any day, to be honest. We'd be in the bottom half of the table without him. 

 

Rashford scored a goal yesterday where he dribbled past two players and lashed it in after cutting inside. When's the last time Mane did that? We need those types of goals and moments of individual brilliance because we're shit at the moment. Salah at least gives us that possibility.

    • I'm looking at this with a sense of grim inevitability. They've been touting it for years, so it was only a matter of time before something happened. Lots of pearl clutching about, but things change in football. The premier league, the European Cup being replaced, the Cup winners Cup ending etc.    The cynic in me thinks it might be a bargaining tool for English clubs to negotiate their own TV deals maybe?   If it happens I'll still watch it. For all these kick off from the smaller teams, watch them clamour places when the entry criteria is announced. 
    • Thats all good, and I agree football died last summer.   But how are we competing with them in this format?
    • Not sure if I get your point here CP.  Do you mean that they were desperate for Saudi Arabian ownership?   I'm pretty sure still that the majority of English fans would prefer the German ownership model (and ticket prices) opposed to the chance that they might get lucky with a billionaire.  The only ones I reckon that wouldn't go for it in huge numbers would be Man City and Chelsea.   But maybe I'm wrong.
    • I will say, it's funny how if you didn't know any better, you'd think people running football we're literally trying to get people to get turned off with the sport.   Russian and Qatar World Cups, the appallingly incompetent usage of VAR and now this Super League. They're doing a great job infuriating people and being even more cunty in a sport that was already run in such a cuntish manner before the past couple years.
    • The amount of shite being posted onlone is fucking hilarious. The wannabe journos from fan shite have taken a rest from XG and other bullshit to post about this. Read one earlier claiming that even if Liverpool finish top 4 they won't be in Europe next year because they pulled out of the European Club Association so now cannot compete in Europe. He's surprisingly not replied to me telling him it's bollocks and pointing out Wolves and Burnley both played European football while not being members.    It's shit, but so is everything in football these days. But just like if the big 6 broke away and invited Everton, Leeds, Newcastle, Villa, Leicester, Wolves, Celtic and Rangers  to compete in a new British Super League they would all change tune and be in straight away
