      Every single time people doubt him he does the business.

      How can anyone say we are a better team without him is beyond me.

      Totally right, start with my father. I fight with him every match.

      Salah is an essential part of our play. VVD plays his long balls to him every chance. That gives us the chance to counter attack by skipping their midfield.

      Spot on mate, just having him in the starting line up, worries the f**k out of opposition teams and puts them on the defensive already!

      You're great and everything but wouldn't kill you to pass once in a while.

      If we didn't get the W tonight this thread might be a bit busier.

      Not for me this one.

      His 'greed'  is what gets him so many goals and he virtually set up the winner as well tonight.

      I'll admit my stream was a little jumpy but looked like he held the ball up well under pressure with skill then laid it off to Hendo who played Bobby in for the shot.

      It's a difficult one for me because I rate him so highly and while I have taken this stance in the past, there are certain scenarios where this "greed" isn't acceptable IMO;

      1. When we are losing/drawing
      2. If another teammate is in a much better position to score

      The above criteria was met twice today and that was after he took a couple of shots instead of passing earlier on in the game. While, I appreciate he needs that drive to score, in certain situations as mentioned above his choice to be greedy is selfish and not beneficial for the team.

      Just seen it and agree he doesn't lay it off as clean as I thought and got lucky with that.

      Stand by it though, his apparent greed is the reason he's the player he is with that goalscoring record.

      Could argue he should have passed it to Minamino at the end of the first half but after getting through the way he did, his shot looked goal bound but for a very good block by Doherty.
      Likewise could argue he should have passed to Ox but even though he took the shot on, it only went just wide of the post.

      Ox wasn’t having a good game and it would have been on his left side, so I don’t think he’d have done much better.

      Good bit of footwork that led to the winning goal too.

      More bothered by the chance damn good chance he again failed to take when Mane played him in and he didn’t just take it on with his right, instead took too long to get it onto his left and made it easy for them to defend. It’s situations like that which frustrate me more than anything.

      Salah is Salah, he will always look to get a shot away himself and that’s what goal scorers do. He probably should have passed when he got tackled on the build up to the goal but had he passed it, then that goal wouldn’t have happened.

      Sorry but it doesn't work like that, he can't be thinking I could pass to Ox or Minamino who are in acres of space but I think they are a bit sh*t so I'll take the shot myself then shoot 1 m wide of the post or get closed down by 2 defenders, it is selfish, end of, and he needs to cut that sh*t out. Football is a team sport and you should always pass to the player in the best position to score and far to many times recently he has not done this and it has cost us goals.

      Read my post properly, I didn’t say what his thinking may have been, I was saying how the scenario’s could be looked at.

      Love Mo but you take the good with the bad. His selfishness sometimes allows us to watch his wonder goals, but sometimes it leaves you scratching your head and leaves teammates (Mané) furious. He was wasteful yesterday, very wasteful and had it been Bobby or Mané people would have been making those comments in spades.

      It’s not like I think we should get rid of him. He’s usually unplayable and causes tons of problems for the defense, but I just wish sometimes he’d have his head up and look to play in his teammates. Especially knowing that defenders are keying on him and know he’s going to try and get off a shot.

      And if you do you might notice the drag back and nutmeg with 4 Wolves players in close proximity to buy the time for the likes of Hendo and Firmino to get into the box in the first place. His next touch did go awry but without the ridiculous skills in the first place the goal doesn't happen.

      I just cant get down with ya if you are on here bashing this dude week in and week out. I'll agree that he isn't in great form right now, however, even on a bad day Mo creates us a goal. How do you not love that? He's invaluable to our success. Amazing amazing player. Some of yall need to figure that out

      Any team in the world would love to have him. If the can afford him. Before klopp we used to moan about superplayers want to leave us, now we are talking about selling him.

      He is a class player and they tend to be selfish, Ronaldo, Messi, neymar and even the great batigoal.

      Although I wish he would pass more, but I cab live the total package. The good with the bad.

      Almost like it’s forgotten how many chances he’s created of late too. In the game vs United he played Mane through 1v1, the game before that he set up the winner vs Spurs. It’s not often a game goes by where he doesn’t create a great chance by playing someone in on goal or playing a huge part in a goal.

      The amount of reverse passes he does that either sets someone away or very nearly gets spot on goes massively unnoticed by agenda’s. In fact, up until the game yesterday, I don’t remember seeing anyone moaning about his lack of passing for quite a while.

      Both the times last night he could have passed to Minamino and Ox, that often results in him scoring and had he not been denied by a good block on the first one in particular, then people would be raving about what a good goal it was.

      You don’t get the amount of goals he has for us so far if you don’t have a selfish streak about you.

      Damned for not scoring 40+ goals like his first season, damned for not passing instead of going for goal in a good opportunity.
