      Eto'o still thinks its 2009. The worlds moving on and the premier league is where it is at.

      Man City and Liverpool are in my view the 2 best teams in the world right now. I dont think we have a policy of cashing in on top players any longer, especially to a direct rival so Mo is exactly where he needs to be.

      When have we? those top players who have left is because they dragged the shirt through the mud to push a way out.

      Absolutely correct. I saw somewhere Samuel Eto saying he needs to go to Spain so he can play in the best league in the world.........????? Said he should play for Barcelona.

      Pretty sure we just beat them. It really blows the mind.

      Samuel Eto played for the Ev........nuff said ;)

      An ex bitter and an ex chav wanting us to lose one of our most vital players to go to another of his former teams that will soon be on the look out for a new addition to their front 3. Who’d have thought it.

      It was in response to Egypt’s latest performance in the ACN.
      Apparently their tactic was to pass the ball to Mo and expect him to do something brilliant with it. E’to was suggesting he go to Barcelona because they play as a team and would create chances for him. Not sure he’s seen us play much recently!!!

      There’s something about Salah that tells me he just wants to play all the time. His lifestyle and fitness is world class - he’ll miss a couple of games I think but that’s it.

      He’s amazing

      The term "gym rat" fits Salah, VvD, and multiple other LFC players. Athletes who live to play their sport regardless if they're getting paid or playing a pick up game. I couldn't believe how much VvD played last preseason and last season and no doubt his understanding with Klopp is: If I'm reasonably healthy , I'm playing.

      Some athletes, no matter how great they are, live in fear that if they relent even 1% they will lose their starting position or their place on the roster altogether.

      Tom Brady, QB of the New England Patriots NFL football team, is perhaps the greatest example of an elite athlete who, despite winning 16 Division titles, 9 Conference championships, 6 Super Bowls, and every accolade you an imagine, refuses to cede any playing time to backups, even during garbage time of games because that is how he is wired.  He fought for playing time in college verses a star recruit who was anointed the team's starter before arriving on campus. Brady was the 4th string QB at New England who had to beat out the team's franchise player, #1 QB Drew Bledsoe. It took a Bledsoe injury for Brady to finally get his shot as the Patriots starter 19 years ago and the fear of being replaced by the "next new guy" has been one of his greatest driving forces that has pushed him to succeed....even now at age 41.

      Then there is an athlete like Kyrie Irving, an incredibly talented but perpetually unhappy NBA point guard in search of his next team. He was quoted yesterday as saying "I'm looking for a new team with enough talent so I don't have to play every night." (I paraphrase). Imagine handing the keys of your franchise and the combination to its vault to a player whose first priority is "star treatment." (Neymar comes to mind)

      Salah is fighter like Brady.....someone who has had to battle his entire career with the mentality of having to constantly prove himself. And even with all his current success, Mo is not taking anything for granted.
      (a little different than Neymar....wouldn't you say)

      Fill a roster with this type of wiring and you have one bad ass team. Salah, VvD, Robertson, Milner, Henderson, Mane come to mind though I know LFC has a bunch more

      Scored a free kick for Egypt. If he adds that to his game here then his numbers will hit the heights of his first season!

      Apparently....the Spanish press knows LFC business better than anyone. LMFAO

      "According to reports in Spain (via Sportsmole), Liverpool are ready to offer Salah a new five-year deal worth a colossal £22.4m a year in wages, roughly equal to £431k-a-week..........Recent speculation suggested that the Reds have set an eye-watering asking price to ward off interest from Real Madrid and Juventus, believed to be around €180million.
      https://www.teamtalk.com/news/liverpool-prepare-record-breaking-five-year-deal-for-71-goal-star

      Question: Does every media outlet in Spain do the bidding of Real Madrid and Barca?
      Like in this case...an obvious attempt to drive a financial wedge between Salah and LFC.....aka ....laying some ground work for future snatch attempts?

      Ignoring the pot stirring attempt and just looking at these bloated numbers at their face value, I have to ask why LFC would feel compelled to go all in on Mo given his current terms, length of contract, and transfer price.
      As sensational as he was in 2017-18 in his first PL season, Mo came somewhat back to earth netting 17 non-penalty kick goals.
      2017-18 Mo is worthy of such a gargantuan salary, 2018-19 MO....not so much. Truthfully, PL teams managed to contain him and essentially took his left boot away from him. Factor in his struggles maintaining possession and his high turnover rate.
      If I'm LFC, I'd want to rate his third LFC season before going all in.
      Personally, I see an exceptionally driven player but not a generational talent.
      I hope I'm wrong

      Other factors: VvD's contract expectations.
      Can LFC pay both as rarified talents? Probably.
      Should they?
      I wouldn't. Unlike in 2017-18, this past season Mo wasn't beating his man.
      VvD doesn't get beaten

      That being said, I'm sure LFC has quantified the global off field value of Mo Salah and the business of marketing is a major revenue component. Fenway Sports revels in such extra income opportunities. Refer to the Boston Red Sox and their 162 games a year star driven TV broadcasts that get 24/7/365 coverage on Fenway Groups privately owned TV network. (Their over the top marketing is sickening to many diehard fans)
      --------------------
      Fun to discuss....but likely more fake news designed to compete with the thousands of bogus rumors floated this time of year to gain desperate clicks.
      My personal favorite..."Klopp getting evicted"

      *sigh*

      You don't really get this football lark do you.

      22 goals in 38 league games is better than 1 in 2, which is pretty much the benchmark for strikers let alone attacking wide players.

      And that's with most teams doubling up on him, or even trebling up on him, which in turn leaves more space for other players.

      I don't see a world where he makes more than 2x than the next highest paid player. Just wouldn't make any type of financial sense because you just fu**ed up your wage structure and everyone else will be knocking on the Klopp's door for a raise.

      It’s a weird thing to be saying really, if he has this issue with the leagues top scorer (for the 2nd year running) and once again getting more than out and out strikers, then I dread to think what he must think about the likes of Aguero and Kane.

      Madness.

      Yeah but I can see where Borg is coming from, Mo wasn't at the same level last season as he was his first, he is still a very very good striker though, but not exactly Ronaldo/Messi consistency levels.

      I think it's a case of baseball analysis not crossing over to football.

      Stats are not much good when taken in isolation and without context, and that's what we're seeing here.
