Can’t for the life of me understand all this disgruntlement over Salah being shellfish, in the whole history of the beautiful game the role of striking has always had a air of selfishness, some of the most successful sides on the planet have operated with a lone selfish striker, in more recent times of course clubs, mangers have opted for a double act like our very own Keegan & Toshack etc, but more often than not it’s a been one man band kind of deal,
Liverpool of course like to buck the trend so when Jürgen came in he introduced playing without a striker per se altogether, some so called experts were aghast, but you only have look at our scoring stats to see how successful we have been, and in PARTICULAR, a certain Mohammed Salah,
Funny thing is he’s not a striker, not like a Fowler, or a Rushy or that crazy genius Suarez, or even wee Micky O, Mo is Mo, he’s a phenomenal player, sometimes he’ll astound us all when he swivels his hips and slaloms his way around 3, 4, 5 defenders , aka Spuds & Watford and then slams the ball home, other times he’ll frustrate the haemorrhoids off you for not passing the f***in ball, but dya know what I wouldn’t have it any other way, he makes things happen, he creates panic, and sometimes he might even pass to one of his wee pals, only sometimes though.
Shellfish my barnacled arse, Leave Him Alone Ffs ! !
