    264 in the goals & assists column from just 309 games.

    It's going to hurt..
    Of course it will and I am in no hurry for it - I'd quite like him to retire here - just presenting how I feel it's best to address it if we do sell at some stage, as I don't think trying to replace what he brings to the side is viable via the acquisition of one player.

    Still. Be it Dalglish, Rush, Fowler, Barnes, Torres, Suarez, Firmino, Mane or eventually Salah, there will always be doors that close and the beginnings of new chapters.

    I know Sid, wasn't posting that as a repost to you...

    It is a dilemma. Painful either way you look at it.

    The thing to do is to get someone in that can manage 15-20 goals who still has room for further development and improvement - and use some of the other money to improve other areas of the pitch, such as the defence so we concede less, thus minimising the impact of a reduced collective goal output.
    In the same way that Keegan > Dalglish > Rush > Fowler > Owen > Torres > Suarez all left a gap to be filled...

    Bearing in mind, we only received proper money to replace only 3 players on that list.

    It is! I think we'll likely be alright though - one the one hand we keep him, on the other we get considerable money and more often than not under Klopp we get our transfers right, so could reinvest wisely.

    What helps is the squad we already have- the forward and midfield options are by-and-large quality, versus a situation like 09/10 through 10/11 where the loss of stars was "sinking ship" sort of stuff and the side looked to have a real time limit on it.

    Key thing if we do sell is timing - selling before Midnight on Thursday would be a madness and I wouldn't advocate a January sale either.

    But in my view Klopp alongside Ferguson are the best in making ordinary into unbeatable.

    This is theproblem for me. I don't mind selling him. The problem is the money will mean nothing to the future of the squad, owners will just have a big pay day. So even if Salah leaves for free or 500m it is almost the same thing with FSG in terms of reinvestment.

    Think aldo was a more than adequate rush replacement. Always think he got pushed out the door unfairly
