Rememeber when people wanted to sell Salah and argued that Mane was the better player. 

 

Those were the days.

It was a complete and utter, Boris Johnson level aberration of a notion when they were both firing on all cylinders, now it should be a bannable offence. If he leaves in the summer and we fail to sign either Mbappe or Haaland it will have been a disastrous window regardless of what else happens. 
 

Every fucking bit as pivotal to our success over the two and a half seasons prior to this one as Van Dijk.

I admit I was one of them. I admit now I was wrong but when they are both in form there isn’t a lot between the two. 
I suppose Salah’s consistency has been incredible in comparison, which is absolutely massive. But opinions change quickly, and fans forget quickly too. Mane and Firminio in form were unbelievable but it’s hard to remember until you watch the old matches, particularly when overwhelmed with disappointment by how they played recently.

Although as I say, I see now Salah is the one.

Mo Salah is a great player. He is turning 30 soon and if we have to sell, now is the right time. For 150 million we could do a massive squad rebuild and improve the team. Who ever thought  Salah would develop into such a great player? There are hundreds out there, don't weep. And don't ask who, because you wouldn't know.

I'd like him to go.  

I dunno, I'm a massive cock, but I embrace the merry-go-round, you can't fight it. 

But just think that with Kane and Mbappe likely to move it will prove unlikely a big bidder will emerge. 

PSG will need a replacement.

How about we let him turn 29 first?

Who's paying 150m for him? Nobody can afford haaland and he's at the start of his career and not "the end" as you would seem to think. We've got a player who's smashing all the records there's ever been at anfield. The lad is 28. The lad is fit as anyone in football and virtually never gets injured. He'll have a career as long as Ronaldo.

Some fans still want to sell him. It's fucking astonishing. One of the few bright spots of this abomination of a season.

I think he'll sign a new contract at some point. Not exactly an old man is he and his numbers and consistency are incredible. I also think he'd want to stay.

I’m not sure Moneyball considerations are enough justification to get rid of our best player this season. 
 

Another major factor with Salah is that, assault on the pitch aside, he doesn’t seem to pick up knocks.

Just a few assists from being in our Top 5 assisters of the PL era. Not too bad for a fella who is apparently very selfish and greedy.

Did not know that Bjornebye had that many assists.

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. 

Salah vs Suarez for Liverpool

 

Salah:

Suarez:

8B7B212A-2CEB-41A9-9488-CDBB5B1523F2.jpeg

Just looking at the bare figure in the PL and presuming all the starts are 90 minutes (I know they aren’t) they are very close in terms of goals per game.

Suarez scored on average a goal every 136 minutes. 

In a much better side Salah scores every 133 minutes.

Two great players and top class goalscores with Salah just coming out on top in the league.

The assist ratio per game is almost identical for them. 

Suarez 23 in 105 games. Salah 31 in 137 games. 

I preferred Suarez as I thought he gave more outside of those stats but am a big fan of Mo's too and he is a much better pro. 

It is a however, a misrepresentation to say that Suarez "scored a lot less goals and get fewer assists than Salah" though. 

 

Edit: Because Mo has only 3 in 12 league games since this was posted Suarez's league goals per game for Liverpool are now ahead of Salah's.

So Trent would need to replicate what he has already done x 3 at the same level to pass Gerrard. Wow!

Salah has played in 48 games this year and has 5 assists. That is less than half of what he got the previous two years (12 and 13) - and a third of what he had his first season. (16)

We have been brutal at finishing but that seems strange.

Last couple of years most of those assists would have been to Mane and Firmino, but with both of them having fallen off a cliff this season, the number of assists for Salah has also fallen.

Yea, I get that - Mane especially - Firmino has 6 in the league this season, he had 8 last.

 

Another factor is it seems everyone in the league is scoring less. We will end up with 60 goals this season is my guess.

Down about 25 from our average over the last few seasons.

 

City will finish in the mid 70's - that side averaged over 100 a year for a good few years in a row. Spurs/Arse have fallen from mid 70 each year to under 50 for Arsenal.

Code loves Salah to the extent of dismissing all players who challenge him in the modern era. Suarez was a phenomenon in a pretty ordinary side,at least defensively. Salah is also a phenomenon but in a much better side. Having both alongside Mane and Jota would be incredible.

    • Nothing complicated about mine. Just the King's initials and shirt number.
    • Hand me down Chopper. Pretty cool but shit to ride. Lent it to a girl from the chippy who fell off it and bent the pedals. Replaced that with a bmx made up of different parts from four different bikes. Loved that thing.
    • Saw this on RedCafe today (I couldnt help myself)#   Excerpt from the rat Evras book- an interesting read illustrating how the mighty empire was beginning to come crashing down starting with Moyes-      The problems with David Moyes started soon after he’d taken over in pre-season 2013. David was really nice with everyone as he tried to settle into the job as Manchester United manager, but everything he did was compared to how things had been under Sir Alex Ferguson.

      Even the slightest change would start players griping about how this wasn’t what the old boss would have had us doing. In Sydney, during a warm-up tour, David suggested that we should do some stretching on Bondi Beach near the hotel.

      He wanted the players to relax, to get out of the prison that hotels can become. United’s own security, who travelled with the team, suggested that it wasn’t the best idea because we’d instantly be recognised. David just replied that he’d been to the beach with Everton and that there were no problems. “Yes, but you’re at Man United,” one of the security team pointed out.

      So we went to Bondi, and started to stretch on the beach. Within five minutes, about 50 people started running towards us as word spread. Security, who were furious as the situation began to spiral out of control, tried to stop fans who were barging right into the session, but they had no chance — Man United were training right in front of people in a public place. Mounted police arrived to restore some order. It was a shambles and we had to leave for everyone’s safety.

      There was every reason, however, to be optimistic for the new season but by late September, for the first time in my stay at United, we were sixth and seventh in the table. The fear other teams had of us disappeared in a few short months. Old Trafford had simply stopped being a fortress. You only had to look at David’s face to see the pressure he was under.

      But the way he dealt with it and us was a big mistake. In the dressing room before one game, he said, “Guys, you’ve won everything here, you have to show me the way to win. I have never won the league, you have to show me how to do it.” I could see what David was trying to do by making the players feel responsible, but Ferguson would never have asked his players how to win a game. He would have told us how to do it.

      Some players used that against him because they thought they were now in charge. Players who’d accepted being on the bench under Ferguson would complain if they were on the bench under Moyes. That made a very hard job even harder.

      I remember one time when the left back Alex Büttner had a massive plate of chips in the hotel before a game, which the manager objected to and banned. Chips aren’t the best food for a professional athlete so I can understand that, and David had a point, but the story appeared in a newspaper two days later.

      David was slaughtered in the media for making changes like that and he reacted by letting players eat chips again. The players knew they were in charge, and there was some sort of incident every day, always an unhappy player. Players became cruel and joked that Bebé had won more medals than Moyes.

      “Guys, we have to take some responsibility,” I said in training after weeks of this negativity. “We have to give the guy a chance.”

      “How can you kiss his arse when he tried to sign someone in your position?” one came back at me. “He’s tried to sign every fecking left back in the world.”

      I’d gone to talk to David after our drubbing at City in September, where Sergio Agüero had run riot. I gave it to him straight, “There’s something wrong here, boss. The dressing room is not happy and I’ve not seen that in my time here before.” David admitted that he wasn’t the best communicator with the players, but told me that I should focus on my own game as I was playing well. What was a big issue in my mind didn’t seem to worry the manager.

      As the situation deteriorated I decided to text Ferguson to see if I could talk to him at his home. Cathy Ferguson made me a nice cup of tea. “Boss, you have to help David,” I told Ferguson. “Patrice, I appreciate your concern and I’ll try and speak to him, but I’ve given him the biggest chance of his life and I think it’s fair that I keep a distance and let him do his job.”

      We lost at home to West Brom at the end of September, a humiliating result for a team who had won the league five months earlier. I wasn’t alone in thinking David had made a mistake by getting rid of Ferguson’s three main coaches, Mick Phelan — a real football coach who held enjoyable training sessions — René Meulensteen and Eric Steele.

      In February 2014, we lost 2-0 at Olympiacos in the Champions League. Our performance was dreadful. As I got back on to the team plane, I walked past David Moyes’s father sitting at the front. I felt for him, he should have been proud to see his son managing Manchester United in a big European game, but the defeat overtook everything.

      I expected the players to be distraught on that plane; instead they were laughing around and playing video games, which admittedly was the normal thing to do on the way back home, but I didn’t feel it was the right thing to do after a humiliating defeat in Greece. The players had decided that the manager, not them, was the problem.

      Again, I went to see David and told him that I was going to call a players’ meeting because the season was turning into a disaster. “I’m telling you because I don’t want you thinking that I’ve gone behind your back,” I explained. “Do it, Pat, that’s fine.” David was really down and getting criticism from everywhere. He needed support from the people who could help him, the players.

      We held that meeting at Carrington and everyone aired their opinions. The players admitted that they weren’t performing to their abilities but that they didn’t have full faith in the manager. Too many of them blamed the manager.

      We won away at West Brom in the first game after Olympiacos, but then we lost 3-0 at home to Liverpool, a disastrous result. David called a meeting of the defenders the following day. Nemanja Vidic was coming back from injury and it was common knowledge that he was leaving for Inter Milan at the end of the season.

      David went through all the defensive players and picked out Nemanja and Phil Jones for criticism for their positioning. Suddenly, Nemanja started swearing in Serbian. “Sorry, do you have a problem?” David asked a visibly emotional Nemanja. “We have to defend one against one, but Rafael and Patrice are always high, they think they are strikers, they need to stay back.”

      I disputed that, shouting, “You have to take your responsibility, Nemanja!” We stood up and argued, unable to hear each other above each other’s shouts. We started to square up and then I pushed him. David was going mad, telling me to calm down.

      David’s assistants were now keeping us apart as I shouted at Nemanja, “I’ll wait for you after training.” It escalated in no time. My plan was to wait for Nemanja and fight him after training because David’s assistants wouldn’t let me get near him at the club. I would see him in the car park and we could fight there and then, man to man.

      As I was thinking my plan through, one of the coaches told me that the manager wanted to see me in his office. David was shocked — I don’t think he’d seen two players fight like that before. I told the manager that I was sorry, that I shouldn’t have pushed Nemanja. “Where did that strength come from, Pat?” he replied, surprised and laughing. “But seriously, you cannot fall out with Nemanja like that.” “I know,” I replied.

      I was still really angry, though, and went back home and planned how I was going to punch Vida the next day. I’d barely calmed down the next morning when I arrived at training and changed, but I didn’t see Vida all day. David told me not to do anything stupid and I promised him that I wouldn’t.

      On Easter Sunday 2014, we lost 2-0 to Everton. Giggsy, who had been dropped, went mad after that match when Everton fans surrounded our bus and started abusing us. One of them threw something that bounced off the coach window. Giggsy stood up on the coach and shouted: “fecking Everton fans are now taking the piss out of us. Enough is enough.”
