      There's a lot of upheaval this summer. New head coach, backroom staff turnover, few senior players leaving and of course incomings too.

      It's probably quite important we hold on to the likes of Salah, Van Dijk and Alisson to guide us through these times.

      Absolutely love Mo and it's great that he feels that way ahead of next season. I hope the new manager coming in gives him a new lease of life as he guarantees goals and he could yet be helped by signing a new player up top

      I think it’s time to put him up front and play someone else on the right

      He's certainly scored his goals from that position. On the right he hardly did anything all season.

      Can anyone remember when he last beat a man?

      Kudus as you suggest would be a superb buy.

      I don’t expect the club to be paying the level of money needed to get Kudus

      Suspect it will be someone from abroad if we do get a forward

      If what we now read is true and he’s staying it’s a testament to his loyalty to you the  fans and the club. He’s a legend anyway stay or go. I think you may of missed a trick though. With him being the best Muslim footballer in world football we all know the Oily’s desperate to buy him and understandably so.

      I’m a seller purely based on his age and knowing you could get more money for him than what he’s worth. Is the latest news just a ploy to get more money out of the Oily’s?? Fcuked if I know but that 100/150 million can buy you some seriously young replacements.

      Last word on Salah if everything we hear is true? His loyalty stands head and shoulders above any Liverpool player that i have known. You may get two statues in the coming months/years.

      Yeah Mo doesn't get enough respect for staying with the club through highs and lows.

      Hes been one of the best players in the world since the first game of his first season all the way up until today.

      It's not always been rosy. A few times we have struggled. Finishing 4th by the skin of Allison's teeth and last year finishing out of the CL places.

      Saudi money has shown its interest and at certain points you can guarantee the absolute top clubs in Europe were circling.

      Yet he's still here and still fighting to win trophies. Him and VVD have been top class for many years for this club and never looked to get a quick fix elsewhere.

      In my life time there has been many a false idol. Owen Torres Suarez all left ship when given the chance.

      Mo is the idol.

      Would love him to sign a 2 year extension to give both parties wriggle room.

      He will be 32 next month so can’t see more than a 1 year extension.

      He’s not as good as he used to be, he’s lost that yard of pace which used to scare full backs but he is still our best forward with the numbers to back it up.

      Yep. I would like Olise on the right and Mo playing as a false 9. His game is going in that direction anyway. Would give us a proven goal scorer through the middle (so not just relying on Jota), while giving us a chance to embed a long term replacement for Salah while Mo himself is still here.

      Seems to be a lot of people talking about wide players or forwards arriving

      We currently have 5 in the first team

      Mo
      Diaz
      Nunez
      Jota
      Gakpo

      Then you add in the likes of Doak , Danns and other young lads

      I can’t see any forward arriving unless one of those 5 leaves

      Not seen anything out of the ordinary, shouts for him to be played as the #9 (wild take), blatantly clear observations that he's been woeful since Christmas and some not minding if he were moved on.

      We've played some of our best football this season while he was away including our best display of the season against Chelsea in the league......before beating them to win our only trophy of the season (also without him).

      His goals and assists may be fantastic but they only really tell half the story, the number of times he blunders.....the number of times attacks go to die when he's on the ball.

      What some don’t seem to be able to comprehend is the difference between “form” and ability

      Mo this season was the first time he was out injured for any significant period - missed about 6 weeks

      Since then both him and other have struggled for form

      But to dismiss him so quickly based on the end of this season is standard hyperbole overreaction

      He still ended up our top goalscorer and most assists

      Who else stepped up in the team ?

      His influence has waned over the last year or so, it happens, could be age....could be fed up with how he's been asked/told to play....could be bored and fancies a change....most likely a combination of factors. All players (in any sport) decline, and Salah is into the start of that decline. Can a new manager get more from him? possibly, but Mo in his prime has gone, and apart from the odd glimpse now and again, it isn't coming back.

      His prime was off the charts it's almost unfair to judge him against when he was in the top 3 strikers in the world.

      Amazing how he still managed to be one of top scorers in the league this year

      Far too many are unable to see past a poor run of form - he was your standard mo until Xmas

      He was at 20 goals and 13 assists across all comps - no one in the prem was near him

      And the problem lies in that he is getting paid as if he currently “is” in his prime.

      13 goals from open play at 350K a week (2x Nunez who was 2gls and 2asst behind) is not a strong enough return.

      His lowest tally of league goals since he arrived indicates a decline....I'm not saying he's garbage, I'm saying we are witnessing him going into decline...as all players do. It's an opinion, you have a different one......

      Quick Question: How long should we accept this "poor run of form"?

      He'll see out the last year of his contract, make no attempt to sign a new one and leave for a big signing on fee somewhere.  We'll get nothing.  That's how it works.

      So I doubt we are going to see a particularly reinvigorated forward next season.
