If you have something else to do, go and do it...

Does the use of 'goal drought' not imply that Salah 'scores a lot of good goals'? Does to me.The caps are to highlight the focus of the headlines.
Put yourself into the position of a casual neutral who didn't watch the game or click on the articles. What do the headlines tell You?
BBC tells you a player called Salah scored a sensational goal, singlehandedly, late in a game which Liverpool won. He's broken records with the goal and he scores a lot of good goals and you can watch a video of 5 of the best.
Sky tells you that a player called Salah scored. That Liverpool left it late.... again. Subs rescued the game for them. A player called Henderson shone.
I don't know how people can think this is even reporting.
Strikes and shines...these imply strength, skill and excellence to me.
'Leaving it late' implies that Southampton were on top early, but unless we were watching different games, this is a pretty indisputable point, to say nothing of the fact that the BBC also highlighted this.
And I'm sorry, but the headline 'Carra: Klopp's subs were key' does not mean that 'subs rescued the game for them', particularly since you are asking us to approach this is if we are 'a casual neutral who didn't watch the game or click on the articles'. How, in that case, would we know Liverpool had been behind (which is what your use of rescue says to me)? Maybe Carra made that comment after an arm-wrestle of a game and the subs broke the deadlock?
At any rate, this particular analysis certainly isn't the evidence you are making it out to be. At least, I don't think it is...
And I do find it interesting that Sky now have a couple of vids on Mo;
Scoring goals always on my mind
WATCh & VOTE: Salah's top 5
Mohamed Salah admits scoring goals is always on his mind after he ended an eight-game drought to write his name in Liverpool's record books.
Mohamed Salah scored the 50th goal of his Premier League career with Liverpool in Friday's 3-1 win at Southampton, but what was his best strike? Have your say by voting here…
Mo puts bums on seats, it seems, and in the end, that's all Rupert really gives a shit about....money.
