For as bad as he’s been?


He’ s scored 9 goals and got 6 assists in 19 starts (25 games) the second half of the season. 


Luis Diaz, who everyone rightly think has been brilliant, he has scored 6 goals and got 4 assists in 17 starts (25 games) in the same period.

 

The different standard Salah is judge on compared with other players, both within our own fanbase and by journalists is frankly ridiculous.


Salah has not been poor the second half of the season, he’s just not been on «the out of this world» level he was the first half of the season.

Diaz isn't asking for 400k+/week, allegedly

I think him leaving on a free next season after one last hurrah season where he'll have more rest coming in from a summer where he doesn't have football and the World Cup he doesn't have to go to, plus the motivation for him to get as big a deal as possible, is probably the best situation for all parties.

 

I think he'll be great next season and then we can all go our seperate ways.

 

But if he's to leave on a free, we should extend Mané, you'd think.

If he goes on a free, so be it. He's repaid his transfer fee, and then some.

 

Regardless, questions must be asked about why we have such difficulty retaining top class talent, despite being the top ranked team in world football.

MONEY MONEY MONEEEEEYYYY!!.

Running down his contract? 

He's probably seen how powerful his position is from the mbappe example. What does he have to lose by running his contract down? The only real issue for him is if he gets a big injury.

Would rather sell him now than let him run it down, given what Klopp was able to do with the Coutinho cash.

Personally I think his comments today was saying he won't be sold this summer .... As in the club can want to sell all it wants, but he's going nowhere.

This is why I've never loved after Torres.

I think we will see less and less sales of these really top players the way it was. They'll either run down their contracts or they'll have release clauses.

Well it's either this way or simply using our budget up buying journeymen who are just glorified championship players. The other way is to become just another Man City and play footballer manager for real with a bottomless pit of a budget.

In some cases it's just curiosity to try a different way of life elsewhere.  They aren't like you and me, particularly in Salahs case he's a bloke that's lived in Egypt, Basel, London, Florence, Rome, Liverpool all before the age of 30, he's got people to move his shit for him, all school stressors sorted for him, I'd move all the time probably.

It could mean anything, it could mean nothing.  What else was he supposed to say today when asked the question?  No point in inviting distractions.

You'd think he'd want a steady school for his kids though,rather than tutors following them around the world. At 30 these lads are planning their retirement and spending more time with their families.

What he said today was he’d be at Anfield for at least another season.

That still leaves room for a contract to be negotiated through the summer, as he has repeatedly said, to be fair to him, he’s wanted to concentrate on the football while there’s still things to be won.

I thought he was a bit subdued during the walk round on Sunday, probably understandably given we’d just missed the league title, and I expect that a summer off for them all (who are staying) and any players joining would hopefully see the league attacked in the same way a we did in 2020 with hopefully the same result but this time celebrated properly.

No doubt in my mind now he is going to run down his contract. Sounds nice him saying he'll be Anfield next season but the reality is he's going . Wouldn't surprise me if Mane did the the same

Seems that mo’s got his eyes on a huge signing on bonus with another club in 2023. Obvious isn’t it. 
I reckon we’ll bring a young forward in this summer to prepare for this much the same way we did with Diaz.

I think us normals put too much emphasis on the money. If someone offered us, say, 50% more to go somewhere else, then we'd go in a heartbeat, because that would mean something to us. It would make a real difference to our lives. But if you're already being paid, say, £150,000 every fucking week, why would more money be attractive? What would you do with it that you can't already do? How would it make your life better?
