I want to complain much about Salah and slating him badly but when I remember this... I just keep quiet and just look forward.

It's there to remind our lads who they're playing for and to remind the opposition who they're playing against!

I've read many people relieved that Salah is resting during this international week. Well, on more than one occasion it is his goals for Egypt which gave him a boost and aided his goalscoring form for Liverpool. There's a few small cases, but the major one is when he started his first season well but wasn't converting enough chances, but then after scoring the World Cup qualifying goal for Egypt, he returned to Anfield buzzing and that's when his goal numbers rocketed.

Any kind of break is crucial for him at this stage - there's no way he isn't tired.
After playing the entirety of last season without a real break he got injured, rushed back and went to the world cup then a short break including rehabbing the injury and into preseason.
Since then he's played almost every game for us and (without checking) played the most minutes of any outfield player ... during that time he's recorded the most sprints per game of anyone in the league (!!!)
Very hard to do that without a physical and mental drop off at some point

Honestly our handling of him hasn't been great but then he's our most important player so you accept him at 90% of his max is better than the alternatives.
Hope he's getting rest these two weeks and it gets him closer to his best for the run in.

We all moan about international football and the potential risk or injury and burn out for our players playing games that don't help Liverpool directly.

However, there are times when playing games at international football is good for a player. If Origi gets game time for Belgium I think that's bonus in this international break. Same with Lovren.

In Salah's case I think you are right. Getting a rest both physically and mentally is probably what he needs. Give him a few days off and let him go on holiday somewhere. Same with the likes of Milner etc..Get them back at Melwood next Monday and ramp things up for the Spurs game.
I think Jookie might just be the best fisherman on this thread.

Salah is my brother, man but I disagree. He had 2 breaks. One in the sun that wasn't sunny, and one in Arabia. Both accounted for losing rhythm... as we might all remember he was firing before that first "break".

That’s not agreeing to disagree that’s making your argument again .... used that one myself :)

Who's that bloke to his left who looks like Igor Biscan? At first I thought someone who done a really bad photoshop with head to body  :o




p.s. to be fair, I think that pic is from a pre-season friendly, so even at the best of times the team would have a few 'fringe' players in it. Would be better to show one of our poorer teams for a proper game around that era....might be slightly better.....but only slightly  ;D

I don't get the fuss really as I think he's generally been playing well and has been providing important assists etc

His assist for Mane's 2nd v Bayern was sublime.  Ok, so his deadly finishing has deserted him at the moment but he's getting everything else right and very soon those shots are going to go in without him even thinking. Not sure if it's the 50 goals thing but he's obviously overthinking for a split second at the minute.  Hopefully he does to Spurs what he did last year at Anfield and then can't stop scoring till the end of the season!

the fuss is hasnt been scoring.

to be fair he was unreal vs watford and in other games. i know michael owen isnt everyones cup of tea but he once said he would rather get 10 chances and miss them all than not get any, because he knew he would eventually put the chances away

salah is the same, hopefully hits a run for the rest of the season.

the assist was brilliant. need to see more of that though because there has been games where he could have squared it and didnt and either missed or lost the ball.

Yep.

I think we'll see him come to life in the CL.  Porto and possibly Barcelona along with Chelsea and Spurs in the Prem is where his season could be defined (as well as scoring the winner in the CL final!)  ;-)
