    I don't get the apathy towards Salah & a possible move tbh.

    So much of our play is dictated by the fact he's on the pitch, he's the most effective forward this league has ever seen in terms of output, & that doesn't even factor in the fact that teams all literally change their entire defensive plan to try to find a way of dealing with him & what that does for the rest of the side.

    Agree

    Clearly Owen was as ruthless as anything. But his game was speed and finishing. Salah offers more

    He's normalised brilliance. Some don't appreciate what he offers

    Not apathy really - just reality.
    Salah has come in, been brilliant and if he wants to fulfill his ambitions/dreams elsewhere, then so be it ... It's stupid to hold him against his will, especially considering what he's accomplished here.  I have faith in Klopp n' co to rebuild the team as these greats move on or slow down.
    I think it will be 'easier' to replace Salah than VvD

    Can't put Owen in the same list, he's a dick. And ask me again after this season and something might change.

    Severely pissing off Mane in that Burnley game.

    Jokes aside, didn't know kings could do any wrong..

    If we're talking about in their prime, in form, being able to convert chances:

    Fowler
    Torres
    Suarez
    Owen
    Salah

    Suarez was the best footballer out of that list though when he was on it, just took the piss out of everybody and could do everything.

    Yep, Salah is definitely the all round better player but Owens finishing, especially in the earlier years, was fucking mustard. Goals v Newcastle and Nottingham Forest (1 v 1) immediately spring to mind. And the one he scored at Newcastle away where he rubbed his hands together. Top notch that one.

    He was just back from France ' 98. Scored a hatrick. He was lethal that season.

    I loved Owen's trademark finish; bend it around the keeper into far top corner.

    Only if he was on his right foot. He was very one footed in his early days (although he was clearly working on it, as he did get better as he got older). He also snatched a lot of shots, often as a consequence of his pace.

    He's also the only player on that list to never score more than 20 league goals in a season. Fowler, Suarez, Salah and Torres all had seasons where they scored 30 or more. You could argue he was playing in the most defensive team out of the lot of them, but the entire team was set up around him.

    Largely agree, with one glaring exception.  After last season Salah goes from the bottom of your list to the top of mine when it comes to converting chances while in top form.

    When I've put Salah at the bottom of that list I don't mean he's shit, far from it, you don't get as many goals as he has for us without being quality, but, you'd put him over fowler for finishing?? Prime Fowler??

    Suarez is the best player I have seen play for LFC.

    No one beats Fowler for finishing.
