      Is Salah better than Suarez?
      Apr 14, 2018 11:38:49 pm
      So Suarez was bought as an out and out striker.  Salah was bought more as wide player I suppose.

      Who would you have in your team first 2014 Suarez or 2018 Salah?

      Suarez. Just.

      I'd have Salah in his first season here over Suarez in his first season here mind you, as he continues to get used to the team and we can build around him his influence will grow like Luis' did. I can see him overtaking Suarez's on field brilliance that season in time.

      Decent return. Can't grumble with that at all.  1 in 2 games.  Can't imagine that record had beaten by many, if any.

      Just had a look Ian Rush - 22 in 42 European games which is about the same strike rate.

      Suppose you could argue Suarez has been doing for a couple of years whereas some might say is it a one season wonder with Salah?? I personally don't think that's the case, Salah is the real deal for me. Suarez had too many faults for me so I'd go Salah. Just saying.  ;D

      Key difference to me, and I might be wrong, was that with Suarez it was a case of just pass to him and see if he can create a goal whereas Salah is more a poacher and firing in from the team crosses and cut backs etc.

      F**k me, imagine the pair of them.

      First season, it's Salah. Has outscored Suarez.

      Suarez record here: 13 (4)...39(17)...44(30)...37(31).

      Salah record so far: 45(40).

      So obviously on goals alone Mo is the clear winner. But Suarez at his best was unplayable to almost every defense, and scored some unbelievable goals, from very little. Very attacking coach in Rodgers. Suarez was all over the attack, came from all kinds of angles. Dangerman in almost every situation. Creative, slippery, cunning. Fantastic player for us.

      Mo is along the same lines but is predominately a right sided attacker but left footed. Unpredictable, pacy,slippery. Not as cunning or as contrived as Suarez. But can make a goal from very little. Bit more subtle than Suarez, bit sharper in the box. Slightly better than Suarez with interplay. Better temprement, no surprise there.

      Almost to close to call. Yes Mo gets it on his first season. We'll have to look at what Mo does next season for a final call on it.

      Good topic tho JD.

      Good question, one thing Salah has going for him, don’t think he will miss games due to suspension.

      Suarez could make something out of nothing but he could also take himself out of the game if he got frustrated. Think I might take Salah with his speed to burn being a factor.

      Salah has been better in his first season if we win the Champions League it is definitely Salah, but at this moment of time it is very close and I would probably lean towards Suarez.  Suarez took better Free kicks, but Salah doesn't bite people so doesn't get 10 match bans.  It is a hard one at this moment but it depends where our team goes with Salah in it.

      Agreed.

      However I've made my decision.

      As good as each other.

      Salah by a country mile.
      Not only has he obliterated Suarez record in his first season, well before the season finished.. his attitude on and off the field is so much better.
      Suarez is a mercenary, he wanted to go to Arsenal and what did he do when Wenger tried buy him for £40,000,000.01? tried to force it through courts. I can't stand Evra and I don't think Suarez is racist, but he was racially abusive to Evra. He also bit players and now plays for Barcelona where he contributed to tapping up Coutinho.
      Even before he played for us, he was hated for his handball in the World Cup by a whole continent for cheating Ghana out the world cup and had a ban at Ajax, so we got him at a cheaper rate. Every transfer to a big club was during a long ban of some sort.
      He does not hold the integrity to be a Liverpool player and if he wanted back, I'd so no thanks! Great footballer, but so is Ronaldo and would you have him here?...

      He has done stuff at Barcelona that would see him probably see him permanently banned here.

      Not an easy question but I think Suarez is better, but Salah has the potential to become a better player than Suarez, if he keeps this form next year he’ll be right up there with Ronaldo and Messi as the best of the world.

      But, if I had to chose one of the two to have I’m my team I’d chose Salah. Can only imagine the show of those two playing together, we could very well play without a keeper.

      Suarez left my jaw on the floor numerous times, probably the best striker I’ve seen... but you always felt he could do something to get himself banned hit a month or two....

      Salah seems to be bringing the goals without the drama, and being cute af... so I’d probs have Salah based on this season.

      No, but I would take Salah over Suarez because Salah's performance is based on all of our team not on one individual. Plus Suarez's backpack is too heavy to carry.

      This,he really was mental but f**k me
      What a player & as you say he really did put the fear of God into every defence in the land ,every time he got the ball you just knew he would do something magical and more often than not he did.
      Yes Suarez had baggage a plenty but I'm talking about what he could do with his feet & not with his teeth ,when he left I said at the time that it would be a long time before we would see another player of his kind in the PL but with mo I'm eating my words. we have another gem on our hands ( it's an extremely long & esteemed list of gems) but this is to close to Call for me  at this time.

      Got a bit to prove over time before I put him in that bracket. Let's not forget what a f**king beast Luis was.

      This conversation could be a bit different a year from now if Mo has a season that's even 2/3 as good as this current one.

      Who would you have in your team first 2014 Suarez or 2018 Salah?

      Without taking anything away from Mo, it's Luis for me. And by a decent distance.

      Exactly Suarez is a dirty b***ard of a player let’s be honest, if he hadn’t played for us he would be universally hated by Liverpool fans, how can you endorse someone who has bitten an opposing player on the field of play not once, not twice but 3 times! Out of the same textbook as el hadji diouf. Those that defend Suarez are essentially saying they would defend Diouf if only he’d scored more goals for us
      On the contrary Salah has not been booked this season and has more integrity in his pinky than Suarez does is his cheating scheming mercenary ungrateful entity

      Simple answer is both... We play a front three... ;D

      Compering Suarez to Salah when both play in different position is not really possible, But if you are compering what they do and there ability to score then Suarez is better...

      Both when on form and deadly finish, But Suarez can/could do things that we have not seen Salah do; and he brings more to the table than Salah can...

      Both great players, but Suarez is one of (IMO) only three players in the world able to breath that rare air up there of the truly "World Class" players in Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and of course Luis Suarez. All there are just hands and heels above the rest

      I think that’s right Dave.

      His last 18 months in England are as good as anything the EPL has ever seen - Henry, Ronaldo etc and he was missing chunks of seasons due to bans!

      The baggage is largely irrelevant to me - I’d more of an issue with him lifting his skirt to Arsenal tbh.......

      Mo has the potential to go further and higher in a better team but at the moment it’s Luis overall for me.
