      Swapping Salah for Mbappe? That's a no brainer. Of course you do it, if nothing else you base it on age difference...Mbappe is going to be great for years and years to come...Salah is at his peak.

      But that doesn't mean Salah is overrated...far from it.

      Yeah I'd swap Salah for Mbappe but Salah has been incredibly consistent for us. I do however get the other chap's pov. Salah can be very irritating to watch at times, easily brushed off the ball, shooting instead of passing etc but he is a superb forward and is not over rated at all. Haaland on the other hand is very over rated in my opinion, not even close to Mbappe or our current front three.

      A rated player who over achieved with more than 20 goals per season for the last three consecutive seasons. Over-rated.

      We'll see.

      Massive summer for LFC due to the number of players with 2 years left on their contracts: Virg, Henderson, Salah, Bobby, Sadio, Fab I think, Keita defo, also Ox I think and Shaq. That's nearly a whole team worth of players and heavily weighted toward midfield and "the front three".

      Michael Edwards is going to have to get LFC's chequebook out a lot this summer (and his 'For Sale' signs) and if his offers aren't what the players and their agents are happy with, things could get very messy. You have to suspect we've been playing hardball/lowball with Gini. We will have had almost 18 months of pulverised income by then so the negotiating by the club may be even tougher than Gini's had to deal with.

      If Mo doesn't like the contract he's surely going to get offered, then his agent is going to quickly become Liverpool fans' public enemy number one.

      But Mo's numbers are getting steadily worse. Take his pens out (as you should to get the real picture) and he's scoring half what he did a few years back. And as was pointed out above, defensively it's like playing with 9 outfield players. Sure he gambols around like a spring lamb in the vicinity of opposition left backs, but he never actually tries to tackle them. If I can spot this then so can opposition coaches. Luke Shaw spent the first half hour of our last game with United leaving Salah in his wake, and joining up with Rashford or Martial or whoever it was, creating 2-on-1s which skewered Trent trying to defend them on his own. That means you've got to sacrifice your right-sided 8 completely, all because Mo doesn't want to get stuck in. And that for me was why JK left Mo out of the recent Leeds game and I wouldn't be massively surprised if the same happened this weekend. Cue loads of Reds  :f_wah:

      That Ramos incident had a massive impact and hasn't gone away. Throughout Mo's mega-season he would look to receive the ball into feet and it would stick like glue, Messi-level glue, and Mo would spin away and bye bye. He's not been the same player since. It's like he's thinking about the fullback coming in behind him instead of concentrating on the ball. That Messi-like first touch is rarely seen these days. Shame he missed that sitter early on v Real the other night as I thought he was lively and probably deserved a goal for his improved workrate. I think Klopp told him why he was benched v Leeds and Mo's taken it on board - hopefully.

      Can we replace a player who is now down to scoring about 15 goals a season from 30 a few years ago? Yes, I'm confident we can, though if we want another left-footer for that slot (which we should) it makes the job of finding a replacement 10* harder. There's no way on this fine Earth we should be giving Mo a pay rise though when his numbers are steadily going the wrong direction and for most of his next contract he'll be the wrong side of 30. Michael Edwards may see it that way. He may not. We'll see...

      If we are going to sell him, and that is a big if, we should consider doing so this summer. He will turn 29 in June and is obviously at the top of his career, if not passed it.
      The longer we wait, the smaller amount of money in. Or he could complete his contract and finnish his career in China or US or what ever...

      No we won't be selling one of the best forwards in the world this Summer.

      Unless some club wants to break the transfer fee record.

      To sell just to sell is obviously off the table, hopefully.
      A replacement should be at the door step before he went.

      Not willingly, no, Hasn’t been very shy to talk about Spain so could push for a move at some point.
