Mo Salah and the Social Media Fallacy

Mo Salah and the Social Media Fallacy

“2019 Resolution: time to get in touch, for real.” That was Mohamed Salah’s last ever tweet. His social media presence vanished, disappearing into the vast void of Internet information that once was. Salah’s deletion of all social media accounts has brought with it a series of questions. Why would he do such a thing? Is he cracking under the pressure of such intense scrutiny for winning penalties? Does this mean he’ll score even more goals now he’s done browsing Reddit …

I always said to the mighty Anfield Index Godfather, Gags, that I’d write one article for him. Just never thought it would be this one! Brendan Rodgers aka Janet Jackson - what have you done for me lately? Oooooh ooooooh ooooooh ooooooohhhhhhhhh yeah. As I waited once the whistle was blown at Goodison today, you didn’t wave. It’s ok. It’s only me… Liverpool Football Club. It's a fine line between love and hate. Make people believe and you're loved. A …
