So pleased he is starting to get plenty of recognition from pundits and other fans. He has been incredible this season.

Immense. One of the first names on our teamsheet.

In recognisable from the attacking left sided midfielder who we signed.

He also seems to have velcro boots the way even in a crowd he just seems to pop out with the ball.

He so much reminds me of John Barnes once he moved to Centre Mid. It’s just fucking impossible to get the ball off him.

In the tightest situations he plays a one two and wriggles free or he uses some skills to turn out of trouble plays a one two and is free. Also tenascious and dogged in the tackle If the team were a car Gini is the engine.

While not as good per se, Sissoko has developed into a good player for them. A similar story with Wij for us I guess!

He's outstanding, marked difference with him in our midfield. Up there with vvd and robbo as our players of the season.

He looks like a cross between John Barnes and Nicola Adams.

An absolute monster in midfield. If Keita starts playing like a God on a consistent basis, then I can't see how Klopp goes back to a clearer 4-2-3-1, because Wijnaldum needs to start as things stand.

If he could strike the ball cleanly he should be getting between 5 to 10 goals a year.

Was only thinking the other day. We started the season with him pushing on, and us copying Citys tactics of keeping getting the ball wide and create easy chances across the goal. That soon stopped 5-6 games into the season

Both those back in abundance against Bournemouth, and Naby who played in those early games.

Think we are still figuring out are best game plan and team, yet we are top of the league after 26 games.

I don't think we're still figuring out our game plan, just that we don't seem to be implementing it in terms of performances regularly enough. Our passing needs to be very quick and accurate (one / two touches) for sustained periods of play for us to apply it properly.Too many times we've not been good enough on the ball to do it, meaning we took extra touches which still allowed us to control games, but to the detriment of fluency in attack.

Gini on facing Bayern, first meeting Klopp, the title race, and not being sure who City are playing next

https://www.goal.com/en/news/liverpo...j1jibn1199wzx5

Quote:
Liverpool can win the Premier League and the Champions League - Wijnaldum

The 28-year-old says his side must take it 'game by game' as they look to claim the double, but admits that is easier said than done

Liverpool star Georginio Wijnaldum fancies his side's chances of claiming an incredible Premier League and Champions League double this season.

Level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table and having played a game less than their rivals, Liverpool are still in the battle for the English top-flight title after 26 games.

But Jurgen Klopp's men are still gunning for Europe's top prize, too, as they welcome Bayern Munich to Anfield for the first leg of their last 16 Champions League tie on Tuesday.

The Reds came close to tasting European success last season when they reached the final of the continental competition and finished fourth in their domestic division, but Wijnaldum is confident they can triumph in both this time around.

When asked which of the two will be most difficult to win, Wijnaldum said: "Probably the Premier League because there are more games, and there are no easy games. The truth is we can both win, but both are very difficult. We have to believe it.

"Jurgen Klopp preaches to look only at it game to game. It's difficult because [the end of the season] is not far any more and everyone is talking about it.

"We also do not want to ignore that, it's normal for the environment. But as a team, we do not always deal with it. Once I asked my team-mates who Manchester City is playing against. They didn't know."

It has been two and a half years since the midfielder left Newcastle to join the Anfield side and he has since gone on to make over 120 appearances. And the Netherlands midfielder still remembers being inspired by Klopp when they first met, after getting over his fear of the coach's dog.

"Of course [I remember first meeting Klopp]! It was at his home in Formby near Liverpool," he added. "I remember that he had a big dog and I was scared of it, so he took him to another room.

"Nevertheless, it was a great meeting. He first asked me personal things: how my holidays were, how I am as a person. It was not about football right away. He really wanted to get to know me. That inspired me."

Ahead of Tuesday's first leg against Bayern, Wijnaldum was asked which member of the Bundesliga champions he would like to see in his side.

"Of course, as a Dutchman, I have to say Arjen Robben," he answered. "What a legend! You want to play against the best and beat the best. Arjen is definitely one of the best, he deserves to be on the big stage. I love him as a player and admire him.

"But in this game I want to win against him. I hope I can say after the final whistle: 'Sorry and good luck for the rest of the season!'

"Two world-class teams against each other you need to just enjoy it and make no predictions."

Aye, is this why he hasn't been offered a new contract?...think his current one expires in 2020 so 29...fuck that, been one of our best players this season so that alone warrants at least 2 year extension with a pay rise to boot!

I very much doubt it. Wijnaldum looks the type of player who will get better with age, so will have plenty more to offer.

There is no way we won't be offering him a new deal.

Turning point for Gini (IMO) was when he came on for Ox in the CL semi. Been pretty much superb since.

There has been no turning point for Gini. He has always been a fabulous player. Its just taken some people longer than others to see this. The turning point in the game you mentioned was yours

Yeah I agree but hes become more consistent of late. Hes always had it in him but went missing from time to time which probably swayed peoples judgement on him.

Sorry but I profoundly disagree. Many of his earlier performances were well below par. At times, especially away from home, he was like a passenger. He has definitely upped his game in the last year or so. I think it’s somewhat revisionist to suggest otherwise.
