Yes, he's had one good game in 150.
Fuck me sideways.
You're not listening to what I'm saying.
When you think of the games players make a difference in, Bobby Mo Sadio Virgil Trent Matip near enough every other player you can pick out multiple games.
Can you say the same with Gini, or will it just be 'that Barca game'
You're the one not listening to what you're saying.
What are you talking about? Wijnaldum was arguably our best midfielder last season. He was instrumental in several games.
He doesn't score or assist a lot, so yeah he doesn't get the headlines but there's been several games. I personally remember the 5-1 game against Arsenal last season and the Brighton game in the beginning of last season.
Fuck me there are some absolute mongs on this site these days.
And this is only down to the role he is given. I was actually thinking about starting a thread myself on Gini off the back of his 4 goals in 8 games for Holland. He's gifted enough to score over a 100 goals in his career and yet the role he plays stitiching together our possession and protecting the team against counters is masterful. He is certainly one of the mentality monsters in this team, Klopp has said as much long before we became the winning machine we are now. Of which, Gini is part of the preferred midfield 3 in games against the most respected opponents.
We're priveledged to have most of our lot, Gini included.
binomial has made a strong move for the mantle of the mong lord in the past while. There's something impressive about his primal monginess. Be interesting to see if some of the competing silverback mongs attempt to resist his power grab.
I do actually think Gini might perform better when in the more attacking of the three CM roles, but he also happens to be our best option for the middle of these three (with Fabs as the deep lying on).
Great to have such an asset on our books.
There's still a power vacuum at the top for a real PowerMong to emerge/ return/ hatch/ evolve.
Binerrrrrrrrmial has always been a strong candidate, bluebell has shown some promise and of course, moron rarely fails to delight, but even those three can still disappoint with the occasional flash of lucidity.
And there's plenty who are merely "really fucking stupid", but it's not really the same thing.
Sorry I wasn't aware this was an award for personality of the year thread.
I have my opinions on things and I tend to stick to them unless I'm convinced otherwise.
Our midfield constantly goes missing in games and there's many times I've seen Gini go missing.
Especially when it's a 3 of Milner Hendo and Gini, all workhorses and not enough on ball quality.
Don't worry. I don't think any of your personalities would have been nominated anyway.
I'm quite ok with that.
OK, this thread has gone a bit awry, but the point about our midfield lacking a bit of creativity and vision is certainly a valid talking point, as is Wijnaldum's role within it.
Klopp has bought players like Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Shaqiri (and tried to buy Fekir), to address exactly those issues as and when circumstances allow, but Keita's done fuck all and Chamberlain has been mostly injured.
Are you saying Wijnaldum could be more assertive and creative in a Liverpool shirt? Yeah, of course. But would that mean slightly less of the not-so-glamorous work is shovelled onto Fabinho's shoulders?
Mad shout for a team who lost one league game last season as well as winning the Champions League.
I'm well aware what we achieved last year
But before we signed Alisson Mo VVD, this same midfield were struggling to finish 4th and being dumped out cup competitions to the likes of Wolves & Southampton at home.
I.e they need world class players around them to up their game because as a midfield unit they're not good enough.
That's because before Alisson and Van Dijk we had two goalkeepers with jelly wrists, and a center back who ate glue.
This thread just gave me mega lolz
Definitely think binomial is starting to outstrip all these guys, even Raz is struggling to live with him. Been throwing his mong around rightly. Of course, every now and again we get a full dreamy from the grizzled old silverback who puts every mong in their place, leaving them trembling and grunting consolingly to themselves after his awesome display of mong.
