    Holy hell, somebody needs to sign that kid. That is an extremely high quality player right there.

    I’m all for Gus Poyets idea of living in the real world as long as he’s willing to be paid a real world salary.

  3. Americano & Proud says:

    Another day, another young mind molded by coach Bradley.


  4. Jim says:

    Salah is a good player but a little rough around the edges. Since he’s still 21 he can improve. Liverpool have been buying a lot of young players only for them to be sent out on loan or not feature much since they haven’t turned out to be good enough to get into the fist team.
