Anonymous Op-Ed: Mo Salah’s goal vs Everton is CLEARLY one of the greatest of all time and we should celebrate it
by Anonymous

Let’s face facts: we’re a jealous, bitter bunch on the blue side of Stanley Park but I want to break ranks, I’m here to be honest. We *are* obsessed with Liverpool, but only because you’re so fantastic.

The beauty and craft of Mo Salah’s goal against us reduced me to tears when I saw it at the time, and when I heard that Salah had rightly been given the 2018 FIFA Puskas Award it’s no exaggeration to say that my fists vibrated with sheer joy.

 

Taz is right, this season’s derby could be very vicious, but let’s not look too far forward, let’s take a step back and savour Mo Salah’s delectable goal one more time. When Salah first picked up the ball, I wasn’t scared. After all, he’d have to get past two of the best defenders in the game, Cuco Martina (for those who have never seen him play, picture a sumptuous blend of Paolo Maldini and Cafu)  and Ashley Williams – the thinking man’s Lothar Matthaus. No, when the little Egyptian was hurtling towards our goal, I was confident that he’d be easily stymied by our defensive Brains Trust – Cuc & Ash. Not only did Mo Salah completely flummox them, but he also shrugged off Idrissa Gueye.

As the ball beautifully span past Ashley Williams’ earlobe and towards the top corner of our goal, beyond a flailing Pickford, I threw the dog off my lap, stood up and applauded. Then I cried. Mo Salah’s goal vs Everton is CLEARLY one of the greatest of all time, and we blues should give it the credit it deserves. For me, it’s the best goal I’ve ever seen – just edging Marco van Basten’s volley in the Euro ’88 Final.

UPDATE: I knew the haters and losers would come. But I’m standing my ground.

You are an idiot “Anonymous” – Salah’s goal wasn’t that good and I have no idea why you are celebrating Liverpool on an Everton site.
