I wonder how many cautionary tales there need to be with Barca before they stop being able to attract top players :D Absolutely mental that the likes of Lewandowski and now apparently Mo are looking at them going 'Yeah that'll do me'
If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

There is nothing wrong in holding out for wages which is close to the market standard. Attackers generally tend to get paid the highest.

We cannot match the insane wage bills of Psg, city, united or madrid but there should atleast be a proper effort to retain our best attacking player who wants to stay. I believe Salah would accept something in the range that Kane is currently getting.

I hate us being embroiled in a soap opera about our players.

Fucking hate it.


We had a period where we were great at just getting the business done quietly and quickly without a saga played out in the media. It was brilliant.

Now the Mane story seems likely to rumble on, and that's potentially a brief ditty compared to how the Salah shitfest is shaping up.

Is annoying but once the season starts, I don't think it'll affect anyone. Mane will likely be gone by then and I would think it'd be accepted that Salah will leave in 2023 and everyone will just be focused on bringing home 20 + 7.
We have to change from doubter to believer. Now.

I suppose the complication is that status & value are nowadays measured in monetary terms - I can't really see why it'd be some sort of frivolous 'spend-ability' that players would be pursuing, but unfortunately that's the yardstick. Complicated further by the agents and their desire to earn and demonstrate their 'portfolios.

This is written by the same John Richardson who claimed a deal was basically done a month or so ago?

I said he was full of shit then when it was good news and I’ll say he’s full of shit now that it’s bad news.

You’ve got to admire the sheer gall of penning a story in the Sunday rags which is utter bollocks, then using said bullshit story 2 months later to pen an equally baseless story stating the complete opposite and using the fact that it didn’t come off as authority for the point.

Fucking footy journos are mostly full of total shit.

Just hope this is settled before the start of the new season. If he can't accept our offer, then sell him now. I just hate the sideshow with agents, lies, disrespecting Klopp, etc. For me its very simple, he has demands and we have a wage-structure. Apparently these two things doesnt match, which is fair enough, then we seperate in peace, but leave the threats, lies, agents  out.

;D

Salah is clearly the star of this team. He's the star of the PL. No one is close to his goal/assist record for us since 2018.

He's asking for similar to what other top players earn in the PL if reports are right.... 400k pw. He's clearly worth that.

We'd be insane if he wanted to earn what PSG pay out to their stars. But he isn't asking for those levels.

It's ridiculous to say he isn't the star of the team. We can't big him up as the best player in the world all season and then try and down play his worth/standing. Sometimes the club get it right, sometimes they get it wrong.

Mane isn't worth parity with Salah, because he doesn't hit the same numbers. You tell Mane this and offer him an increase but not the same terms as Mo. If he isn't happy then you find a solution. The same goes for anyone else unless they too start bagging 45 goals/assists seasons. What a lovely problem to have at that point though.

Based on his form since returning from AFCON he's not worth £400k a week. Perhaps he's peaked and teams have worked him out a little more than was the case before?

My understanding is we've made him an offer that would make him the best paid player in the history of the club. If that isn't acceptable so be it, not much more we can do.

We've arguably had his best years (same as Mane) and don't need a season of snide remarks from his agent and continual speculation. Every press conference will be dominated by Salah talk.

Sell him this summer. We've lost players before and survived.

Worst case scenario is this plays out into next season with his agent spreading rumours of him moving to (insert any number of sportwashing clubs here) and his form continues to be in the toilet. Can't be bothered with a circus and neither will Klopp imo which is why i can see him sold for whatever we can get this summer and someone like Nunez brought in as a replacement.

Mo himself said "Its not about money" so if its not money what is it ??!!

I imagine if you're someone like Mo or Sadio, and you're getting on in years in footballing terms, you don't want to keep working your balls off all season long only to end up seeing the likes of the sportswashers pipping you to the league after splashing another £100m+ in the latest transfer window. It's bothering fans to be having these outcomes, imagine being a player, they'll feel the same way as well no doubt. So do they want to work and maybe fail in achieving their targets, or do they want to go somewhere else where they maybe don't have to work quite so hard and may have more chance of ending the season winning things like the Bundesliga or La Liga, or, who knows, maybe even joining the sportswashing entities themselves for 'guaranteed' winning.
Look around at the world of football and the amount of players that just want to be part of a winning set-up, regardless if they play much of a role in it themselves. There are many that just want to be winning.
I think the cup wins could potentially have added some doubts about leaving, and I'm sure if we won in Paris they'd both be signing whatever was offered to them, but with missing out on the biggest prizes I think it has their heads turned to the possibility of an easier time elsewhere. If this is the case then we'd be better off for them moving on, as good as they both are, because we need people willing to leave absolutely everything out there on the pitch and to have the belief to win to enable Jurgen's philosophy to be realised.
But as others have stated, it needs to be sorted out one way or the other as soon as possible because the worst outcome is them playing half-heartedly until their contracts run out and then off they potter after a year packed full of the media circus that destabilises the whole club.

Ah that interview with Ferdinand, i was furious. That c*nt with some snide questions was trying to get into his head and unfortunately he got what he wanted with every question, Salah was just too blind to notice. He really should stay away from interviews.

Is that when his G/A were the best at the club or?

Its a fucking lazy football twitter myth that he went missing since AFCON. He didnt start 6 of the remaining 16 games yet scored 7 and assisted 4.

He's our best player by a distance.

Top scorer and assists in the PL.  ;D

He was a 10/10 keeper performance away from winning us the European cup and scoring in his second final.

His best years could be the next couple. The greats are now playing their best well into their 30s. Ronaldo, Messi, Lewandowski. He looks after himself as good as any of them and doesn't drink. There's also 5 subs now so players will get rested much more. I maintain its a ridiculous decision not to pay him 400k (parity with the best in this league, much less than PSG are paying their forwards).

If the difference between him staying or going is failure to give him the wages saved on our dead wood, then its a massive mistake.

Paying any footballer 400k a week is insanity and I don't care what PSG are paying anyone.

So was 50k a week when Roy Keane got it. Times change.

We can't run with PSG but we should be able to meet the reported Salah demand.
