Authored Verdict 

The contract should be offered anyway, even if Salah didn't play well today. He has already done enough to be given a new contract. 

It's so good to hear that James Pearce is becoming more confident about the situation. Working for The Athletic means James sees what happens at Liverpool more closely. 

What he has said is music to Liverpool fans' ears and he wouldn't say it if he didnt mean it knowing the following he has.

Said it before, all on FSG and John Henry now. Mo Salah has stated what he wants and it's all on the club to deliver that. 

You put in the work, you get rewarded. That's the saying. Guess what FSG? Mohamed Salah has certainly put in the work. The time has come to reward that work.
