The next time Mo wears the famous Liverpool shirt, it will be his 300th game for this club.
The great man will become the 62nd man to represent the club that many times and the fourth African (I think) to achieve the feat after Arthur Riley, Gordon Hodgson and Bruce Grobbelaar.
What more can be said about the man? When you look at the transfer fees that are being thrown around now, a mere £40 million quid looks like a steal for our Mo just six years ago. And this is despite a lot of people questioning the transfer, and it's fee, at the time. Now it really is looking like one the greatest bits of business we've ever done.
Scores goals for fun, breaks records like there's no tomorrow and is now ready for a 300th game. Only once, so far, in his Liverpool career has he failed to make 50 appearances in a season. Which just shows how f**king good he is that he's almost always picked when fit and that he's almost always fit.
Congratulations Mo on your 300th game. I hope there's plenty more to follow as well.
Can’t see him surpassing Rushy mate, but by the time leaves or he hangs them up, he’s not gonna be a million goals off getting close to ‘Sir’ Roger on 285, assuming he continues to score at a similar rate, as time goes on he’ll play less and less so it’s a tall order, but, he’s such a phenomenon no one can rule out him achieving it,
I don’t think he gets the adulation he deserves, even amongst our own, he is a one off, this kind of player only comes along every so often, generationally, looking back in our archives you’ll find, names such as Reisbeck, Balmer, Scott, Stubbins, Liddle, Hodgson (Gordon), Hunt, Rush, Fowler, Dalglish, Salah, ….
…..names tattooed into our folklore, Mo is just the latest addition, even if he retired this season, he has legendary status already.
