    30m

    My biggest mentor is myself because I've had to study, so that's been my biggest influence.

    But if he's not worth 30 what makes salah potentially worth 35.......not digging you out by the way....im trying to figure out my own reaction to transfer fee madness.....

    Personally I think I'd be more willing to accept we paid a huge fee for Salah but not for Chamberlain....

    But the reality is I can't really see why Salah should be worth more. ......

    If I was the owner of Liverpool, and I know I never will be, if I was paying that much for a player, I would be expecting him to be a first team regular, I don't think Chamberlain would be anything more than a squad player. You could say the same about Salah I suppose, but I think he would be better value for money, given Chamberlain's injury record.
    If football was meant to be played in the air, god would have put grass in the sky.

    Salah has just had a full and very consistent season in a top European league, Oxtail-Chambermaid hasn't... ever.
    In the final year of his contract,seems injury prone and very inconsistent.

    Can't claim that one, I'm afraid that was NWR.

    That's a totally fair question and any of us could be right, or wrong on the Ox vs Salah debate. Skyebo and Miller have basically answered the question though. For 30m+ I'd expect to be buying a 1st team player. I could see this working next season, for example:


    Salah Firmino Mane

    Coutinho

    Whereas I just don't see Ox being good enough to play that wide left position, or the attacking midfield position. He'd only ever be a squad player.

    No thanks to the Ox. Squad player, his contract run down, he seems to pick up loads of niggly injuries, which makes him inconsistent being in and out the team.
