      While i agree with your overall point, if you really think that assist was actually an intended pass to Bobby then  :lmao:

      Whether it was intended or not, an assist is an assist. Though to be fair, Salah could easily have taken the shot himself you can clearly see he stopped himself and let the ball go to Bobby, so whilst he didn’t necessarily intend on passing to Bobby, he certainly did intend on leaving it to run for him.

      No doubt they will both score vs Newcastle now and have a big display of love for each other or make some joke of it all in a celebration. At least there’s no golf clubs involved.

      The worst one for me was actually when he didn't lay it on to Firmino. Bobby out of the 3 is the most team orientated and also a calm guy therefore didn't make a scene.

      Klopp on the other hand was not impressed and lost his sh*t on the touchline. Perhaps because at that stage it was only 2-0 and perhaps because it would have been a wonderful goal.

      I don't think it will have gone unadressed after the game or this morning. I believe it's a straw that broke the camels back and against Newcastle I'm expecting and excited to see some goals laid on a plate for all of them.

      As for the relationship with Mane and Salah I think it's all dealt with and there's no issues there. Sometimes your mates just piss you off and it's good to let it out and move on.

      In the search for footballing utopia we were 1 pass away from some mind blowing football. The work Salah did when he should have laid on Firmino and then again for the goal in which Firmino scored was beautiful.


      I dont think it needs to denegrate into miserable idiots versus Salah fanboys. There's barely anybody left on the forum as it is.

      I'm not interested in a narrative I just don't like to see that greedy trait in his game. I genuinely don't. I don't agree that it's this trait that makes him such a great player. I believe that to be his outstanding talent.

      It is also a sign of how well we are playing that our biggest worry is we could be winning by 4 or 5 rather than just 3. But we have to talk about something!

      All strikers are greedy, to a greater or lesser extent.

      I'll reiterate - anyone trying to create a narrative out of this, so they have something to moan about all season is a f**king idiot.
      The reason we have lost good posters is because of f**king idiots constantly slating the team or coming up with ludicrous sh*te to try and be "controversial".
      Two of the worst culprits got binned, and properly so.

      Again, storm in a f**king teacup.
      Seen it happen thousands of times.

      Yeah he wasnt meaning to set Firmino up bet he stepped back from it for Bobby to bury it.

      It definitely would have been a step too far if he had tackled Bobby 🤣.

      That goal reminded me of one of Gerrards goals in his hatrick game against the bitters where Suarez was jinking past their defenders at will then Gerrard came in and lashed it home.

      Salah, Firmino and Mané combine to be the most frightening attacking trio in the world - let’s not take it for granted and enjoy every single game because it’s not going to last forever.

      I would genuinely have those 3 over any and I mean ANY player in world football.

      Firmino with the assist of the season but Salah started and finished it with pure class.

      I think we sometimes take for granted just how phenomenal this man is. The pace, vision and skill to drive into a tight box and tuck it away like that was just breath taking.

      Agree.

      Every one has heaped praise on Bobby for the flick and rightfully so, but take nothing away from Mo had it all to do still and finished with aplomb.

      I agree, Klopp needs to braver with this, out of Mane and Salah I would have hooked Salah first today. Would have been a good chance for Brewster or Shaq.

      yeah Salah is getting a bit complacent and predictable with his play, I'd say what he needs is dropping form the team to give him a bit of a jolt but we don't have anyone to replace him with, its why I was crying out for another top forward in the summer to give genuine competition to the front three.
      I'm sure he'll kick back into gear sooner rather than later though.

      Salah had a bit of an off day, he didnt get much change out of the cheatski defense.

      These things happen, thats why we have 11 in a team. Bobbi & trent stepped up for the goals.

      All good and all that stuff.

      All 3 forwards will be rested midweek.

      You should totally go forward with your "Drop Salah" campaign. It's what the club and team need most at this point of the season.

      Well we cant drop him as my "lets get some decent cover for our forwards" campaign failed in the summer, but in all seriousness I would drop him if he is playing badly, same as any other player in the team, not sure why that is contentious?

      Salah is going to come up against good defenders, just like he has done before.

      It's a mark of his talent that he often finds a way to score or assist, when he has 2 or sometimes 3 players on him.

      His defensive work is very underrated as well.

      He put in a hell of a shift yesterday, both attacking and defending.
      In attack, it didn't quite come off.
      No big deal, sh*t happens.

      He was working on his right foot and probably needs to continue.
      The top defenders now having been trying for the last season to force him onto his right and then wait for him to cut back onto his left.
      Sometimes he still beats them but watch how often it happens against the best defenders.

      Because he's not playing badly! He didn't score the last two games. That's it. You don't drop him for that. Two-time defending Golden Boot winner. ANY team would want him.

      Wasnt he one of the guys last year you said we should sell after a game that left you particularly unhappy?

      Salah is my "least favorite" of the front 3, but he is an elite performer and you don't just drop those type of players because of a couple of games. Other than when needing rest, he should be in the starting lineup and let him work his way out of it. The "decent cover" campaign was just for that, cover, not to supplant any of the front 3.

      Surely forcing an attacker away from goal on his weaker foot is standard defending?
      If memory serves, defenders have been doing it (or trying to) since his first season here.
      Now they have to do not only that, but also put another player (s) on him, and for me, that's had a much bigger impact.
      Can't expect the lad to do loads when he's surrounded.

      Didn't think Mo was great yest - ran well but used the ball poorly - but there's a fair step down in front 3 cover.
      So same applies if Bob or Mane are having a mare - if we want to take them off, who do we bring on who is up to match pace and sharpness.
      Thought Divock was doing well and decent backup until he got injured.
      From what little I've seen of Lallana and Shaq, wouldn't like to be looking to them to start a match/if chasing a goal.
      But hope to get a better look at them in the fizzy cup, don't expect to see Mane or Mo against MKDs. Good chance for the 2nd tier lads to get their hands dirty, for us to see their form, and for them to maybe put even some pressure on the front 3 for a starting place in some PL matches.
