    Echo put forward that question for the following 5 goalscoring greats:

    Article: Rank them
    Mohamed Salah
    Fernando Torres
    Luis Suarez
    Michael Owen
    Robbie Fowler


    I find this darn near impossible ...  it's like 1a, 1b etc

    Based on pure finishing class:
    God
    Owen
    Torres
    Salah
    Suarez

    Based on their greatness?
    God
    Torres
    Suarez
    Salah
    Owen

    (Salah will probably climb once we settle on 19/7 and then 20/8 etc

    That's a hard one

    Based on finishing I'd rank them as:
    1. God
    2. Torres
    3. Salah
    4. Suarez (on average, although he had ridiculous spells where everything went in)
    5. Owen
    On skill
    1. Suarez (he did things that I didn't think were possible)
    2. God
    3. Salah
    4. Torres
    5. Owen
    Whilst Owen is at the bottom, he played in the least attacking team which meant he naturally got less goals. He also scored in the big games e.g. Roma, The FA Cup Final etc. So it's not meant as a slight, despite my disliking of him.

    People here are always qualifying achievements based on trophies won, so Salah also wins it based on being the only one to win big ears with us (and in all likelihood, the only one to win the league title with us too)

    And Mo's often played on the wing too.

    Fucking hell, God is my favourite player in the list, but Salah is really something special. It's sad how underappreciated he is.

    God was doing it as a 18 year old, Owen too ... Suarez almost took a team to the league by himself ... and Torres in that spell was just unplayable, but he was the ONLY real goalscoring threat we had too ... Salah is playing on perhaps the greatest Liverpool team ever - with a great goalscorer in Mane and a capable one in Bobby.  I think that's the only thing that is perhaps hurting him ...

    We're comparing 5 of the greatest talents that have graced the Premier League (or to be honest, the world) ...

    Exactly, and on goals per game, and big trophies won, Salah tops that incredible list, I'm just saying that is pretty remarkable.

    Yeah, this only makes sense when you know what it's based on - goals scored, skill, as a person, trophies won, etc.

    It is remarkable ... this current team is great, one of the best ever ... If you put prime Robbie etc on that team, do you think they'd do as well and win?  Do you think the previous teams would have won more than they did (bar I think Suarez?) with Salah now?

    All impossible to answer really.

    Do you think if we were champions of europe and walking our way to a league title with any of those other 4 in the team we'd be talking about replacing them or them being too selfish?

    Salah - correct me if I'm wrong - has mentioned he dreamed as a kid of playing in La Liga ... so most of us realize that may come up once he's accomplished everything he can with this club.  So talking about replacing him (or any player) is just fans talking about a possible reality, or about the obvious reality that seemingly was one of the reasons Klopp signed his contract extension (i.e. ensure the team is ready to continue on once he leaves us).

    The selfish bit - ok it doesn't exist, and what we saw earlier this season didn't happen.

    It feels we shouldn't discuss various subjects etc due to how great the team & manager are ... Sounds riveting.

    Controversial opinion but, Owen was a better finisher than Salah.

    When he went through on goal 1 v 1, you just fucking knew he would score.

    Why so defensive mate? I'm just posting my opinion, not attacking yours.

    Yeah, I agree actually. Even in Salah's 44 goal season he missed some chances that were surprising.

    However, when Owen was off form he didn't have close to the same impact that Salah does when he's off form.

    ha ha ok bru - I hope we keep Salah for a few more years, but I wouldn't have an issue with him moving on if he wants to ... time will tell if the dreams he won't achieve there are worth the realities he'll achieve here.
