    He was a bargain for Liverpool, really no point in discussing that.
    I am not a big fan of Salah but the most important games are still up. He can still become the decisive player for Liverpool so no point in writing his season off. He is up there with AgŁero and Kane to become top scorer again anyway.

    I am more apt to criticize toxic players with their team--egomaniac players, and/or those with poor effort on the pitch. Also repeated boneheaded plays by defenders or DMs are certainly not acceptable. But goal scorers and attackers have to take risks, and go through bad form/bad luck streaks, perhaps I am more patient than most fans.

    All I would tell you on Salah is I would sure take him here to play the #9, and Liverpool fans by and large are no where near giving up on him or whistling him.

    Come on man, we are talking about Liverpool here! To give you a perspective, Liverpool are somebody who bought Andy Carroll for 41m and Christian Benteke for 46m! If you look at it, the prices for strikers in England as a whole are pretty high. I mean Chelsea bought a dead Torres for 58m!!

    All things considered, Salah at 42m was not at all an over pay for England and Liverpool standards

    Compared to Liverpool's past transfers yes he's a deal. But i'm comparing him to the market in general.

    When he was in Roma he wasn't this hyped. Yes Roma would have demanded more if he was anywhere near his Liverpool level.

    Secondly he wasn't playing in EPL at that time so the prices for English "strikers" (he's not a striker) is not a benchmark.

    But yes compared to current EPL standards he's a bargain.

    He would cost 150m and i'm not in favour of paying such money for a guy who's showing signs he can't handle the pressure in big games.

    Liverpool fans won't give up on him as they are not big enough to attract players better than him. But at Barca that won't be the case. Case in point Coutinho.

    And that's the crux- If he keeps showing his current weakness he'll remain a Liverpool level player. In order to be among the best he has to do better.

    He has only so much time to get better, before Liverpool's title bid is out of reach.

    Liverpool obviously made a great transfer with Salah, but I don't think his quality is really what we saw last season. More what we are seeing this season. You can see he is getting crushed by the pressure.

    Well he is 2nd in the EPL goal race this year (1 behind Aguero) and fastest to ever get to 50 goals in the EPL based on minutes played. This is faster than Aguero, Costa, Kane, Torres, Suarez, Van Persie, Henry, CR, Drogba, etc. Not saying their situations are the same but it gives you an idea of the class of strikers and the typical adjustment period. Salah has been excellent this year, just not historic.

    Funny, yet you completely disregard my previous post. Salah being man marked by 2 players has free'd up space for other Liverpool players to score goals, hence why Mane has his highest goal tally this season, and why Liverpool are 2nd, and competing for the league this year rather than going for the top 4. All whilst Salah's goal tally remains at a good rate. It's fairly evident at this point you don't really watch Liverpool.

    That's what he has done, took Liverpool to the next level, Liverpool are no longer a club that are just there, they are genuine competitors, so not entirely sure what you're getting at. You don't like the guy, that much is obvious, I wonder why, strange really.

    FYI, NO GOALS yesterday. FAILURE!

    But was instrumental in Liverpool's getting their first three, if anyone was curious.

    His goal production has still been quite good this season, i doubt people expected him to match last season though.

    Its not all about goals though, his performances has been awful recently.

    Yeah he is just having a patch of tough luck anyway. Still, looking at todays match against Fulham in isolation he really was very far below his standards.

    Played very good today. Apart from his screamer he was also instrumental in the first goal.

    Better than Mbappe or Neymar for sure. Messi, Ronaldo and Salah are the best players in the world for me.

    Looks the most like young Messi from all players I have seen in the last years.
