This is more of a general observation but think how many goal Salah would score if he could use his right foot. I reckon he wasted half his chances by being so one footed.

Doubt it, he's so quick and agile he always has time and can turn his body on a hairpin to get it into the right position to use his strong foot. So when he can do that why would he use his right foot too often.

This is just because the media have decided to point out the number of goals that he's scored using his left foot.

Left footed players always have a major problem with strengthing their weaker foot, maybe there’s some science around it because I believe it’s something to do with the brain. Right footed players are much more capable with their weak foots.

I'm left footed, used to be pretty good. Played for my boys team till 14 (found girls, levis, cigarettes and hash) I also played for the 15s and the 16s when I was 14. Sometimes I couldn't if games were at the same time. Used to play three matches a week. I got better with my right but its never been much more than a swinger. I was a no11, left wing in a 433. My manager for the 14s used to play for Preston North End. No one really Played 442 in those days, it was seen as revolutionary. Got top goal scorer for the 14s, scored a few for the 15s, one real hard game against a rival for the league (we were top of the A league) it was nil nil for ages, only played 30 minutes a half. (16s was 45 minutes) the second half I did a cruyff turn, on the edge of their box, beat their defender (our best player was injured, broken leg, not from football) and he was proper urging me on I remember. The angle was quite tight and I could not kick a football very hard in those days, I was quite small, but I waited for the keeper to commit himself, he ran out a but and I hit it as hard as I could with my laces and I beat him at the far post. Game ended 2 1 to us, at their ground. There was fighting after the game, they threw stones at the minibus. Dicks. King Richards we beat, we were called sportique youth. Great days. I understand the game so much better now though, if I had my head now then I reckon I would have had a chance. Scored a few right footers, but not many, volleys or tap ins.

For a left footer, I think Salah has scored a fair share of his goals esp. at Roma with his right foot. Most lefties do not have a right foot that does anything more than helping them step onto a bus. Rivaldo did Rabona's all the time (if he could not check to his left foot) on the right flank. Salah is fine in this regard even tho, he can always improve, IMO.

How could anyone criticize 32 goals?

I know Angus. Wtf, yeah salah is half rubbish!

We were all crying about needing a 20+ striker. Now we have one and also a 30+winger/ striker. And mane will probably get to 20 too.

It’s nothing to do with how many goals he’s scored. And actually he has missed some because he tried to use his left instead of right. It happened on Saturday twice against Newcastle. What I said is that he’d be so much better if he could use his right foot. He is very one sided much more than other strikers. I still think that a premier league striker at a top club should be easily able to score with both feet. That’s my point.

Razor, that may be true BUT players like Aguero and Kane barely use their left foot and that has not stopped them from being more lethal even tho, I agree that you as a striker, increase your chances of scoring if you are two footed to some extent.

It’s not just shooting it affects crossing as well. I’m just saying that he’s a lot more one footed than many other players and he’d be better if he could use his right foot. It can make all the difference if you inly get a few chances.
