And we'll be seen as financially 2nd tier, because that's exactly what we are.

Thats fine, we must also be be ok with us getting players to the best in the world and then leaving because we cant pay them as that. Cant be any hard feelings if Salah leaves us for more money.
If we win, its normal because were Liverpool Football Club

Yeah... I mean this is grade A bollocks.
United cant get a deal done with Pogba, PSG can't get a deal done with Mbappe etc etc - sometimes you can't get a deal done.

You don't make financial decisions and football decisions based on the effects on your rep
No, you make them based on what's best for the club. Losing a guy like Salah makes zero sense.

At the same time imo there aren't any other clubs he'd want to move to. 

It really shouldn't be difficult to acknowledge that we're not going to give any single player £2 million a week.

its not.

Pogba wants out and so does Mbappe. Salah wants to stay.

If Salah wants to stay he will. Salah is probably open to staying and open to leaving. There is certainly a deal to be done, but there's always a deal to be done. You don't think that if Pogba or Mbappe are offered a ridiculous offer they wouldn't stay?

What Jack is getting at - and his point is self-evidently correct - is that sometimes you can't get a reasonable deal done. Sometimes people come to the table unsure of what they want so they ask for something that the other side is unlikely to agree to to hedge.

Read the posts. I was replying to this...

If you repeatedly tell someone they are they best in the world, and also one of the most marketable players in the world they have a right to ask for pay in line with this.

Liverpool have the best player in the world, if we don't get the contract done we will be seen as 2nd tier.

Which was in reply to this...

Well, Messi, before Barcelona killed themselves, was on around £2 million a week, so we need to match that yes? Then we need to have a wage bill around £500 million a season? That how it works right?

Probably not the best examples. Mbappe and Pogba both made it clear they don't want to stay at their clubs. Salah publicly stated his desire to remain at Liverpool, which makes it a different situation.

As I said before, it's great that Salah says he wants to stay. To that end, he has to remember that LFC is not an oil club with bottomless pits of money.

I've no doubt he ploughs a lot of his earnings into his home country and aides the disadvantaged, but he will still leave Liverpool a multi millionaire. The club needs a wage structure so I hope he keeps his contract demands reasonable and that the club treats him with equal respect.

His ability to put defenders on their arses without touching the ball is unparalleled.
The fact that his song is based on a track called 'Sit down' is very apt, considering that's what most defenders do when he dribbles around them.

for those complaining about the potential wage structure impact ....

what do you think of the "big bonus to re-sign" plus a "large weekly wage boost" idea?

all our players want him to re-sign, will see the logic in the bonus, and won't be pissing and moaning about not making the same weekly money as him.

The beauty of it is that we don't totally depend on him for our goals. Coupled with the return of our experienced defenders, the weight has been lifted off his shoulders.

Jota took 2 goals off him yesterday. One off his toe, that Jota scored himself, the other he skied with Salah arriving at the back stick. “Quiet” by his standards but by only small margins.

What fucking freaks voted Salah to finish seventh. That's crazy, but it's always been a bit shite anyway.

After we won the Champions League, Ronaldo finished above Salah and Mane. That was truly nuts  ;D. Van Dijk was unlucky not to win it that year but Messi was insane too, mental how he's won it this time though.

Like I said before, I don't know why they even fucking bother with a vote as long as Messi is still playing. Just give him the bloody thing each year and dispense with this farce.

We finished two seasons on 97 and 99 points, won a CL, CWC and the PL and barely got a sniff. Messi only has to fart and he wins this sodding thing, playing for a team that got humped by Roma, Liverpool and Bayern in successive seasons.

Mo doesn’t derive to win in 2021.  He’s had a great stet ot this season, but not so much the start of 2021.

7th seems about right to me.

Giving the award to Messi was a joke. I was almost certain the Lewandowski would win it, hands down. Well, now hands are holding head in disbelief...

I wasn't expecting Salah to win it, said so a few times, but 7th seems off a bit. Oh, well, we move on. Lets get the 9th player on that list. ;D

Or it shows that you haven’t looked at  messi’s numbers at Barca last year very carefully.

Lewa was robbed the previous year.

We have to accept that Salah wasn't going feature in the top 3 ghis year as he was merely good rather great (by his unbelievable standarfs) last season and normally you have to win the big prizes to get it. Unless you are Messi in which case you got votes just for turning up.

Yes Messi is still brilliant and still had a great season in terms of goals, but nobody can tell me he was the standout candidate this year (or in 2019).

If Mo keeps this up, he is nailed on next year, but I'm sure he'll want the big trophies in his hand before then.
Some clubs were always destined for greatness...
