    I'm afraid you're not really mixing it with the leading mongtenders Sumo, not even close. We all remember your prior sentience. You're more like the chimp that scratches his arse and then sniffs his finger. An amusing distraction.

    I don't know about Dreamy. He seems to be becoming self-aware.
    Like a mong HAL

    "Open the Mong Doors Dreamy!"

    "I'm sorry doc, I'm afraid I can't do that"



    Oh my God, it goes on forever...its full of mongs!

    The fucking state of this. Coming in all 'look at me! I'm a total mong hahahaha!'

    Just because he's a bit drunk or hungover sometimes. It's not authentic.

    Plastic Mongs are the worst.

    I mean at that point I totally don't remember any prior sentience but you're probably right about the arse scratching

    The 3rd page of this thread is a lot better than the previous 2. It also helps that I put one of the above-mentioned mongs back on the ignore list, even though I'll probably miss a bunch of threads this way.

    Anyway, there's no doubt that Gini has a more attacking side to his game that we have only seen in flashes in a Liverpool shirt. I think it is testament to him that he happily sacrifices this within the usually disciplined role Klopp prescribes for him– a role, we shouldn't forget, that he excels at.

    He's got a great header on him I remember the one he scored against City.

    He scores a fair few headers for someone who isn't that tall.

    That header against Barcelona was an absolute smasher. The leap looked superhuman. He's a proper threat in the air.

    There's no doubt he plays a million miles better for national side that he does for us.

    On the ball a lot more, makes more runs, links up play. Scores & assists

    Rarely seem him do that for us.

    He started as a gymnast, so no wonder. I think the incredibly effective way he uses his body to protect the ball is also influenced by his training in another sport.

    He is not being asked, nor is he expected to do that by Klopp, though.

    He is part of that midfield engine, the creativity is from the fullbacks, and the front 3.

    It's probably worth considering that he's asked to perform different roles and play in a different way and position for Holland vs Liverpool

    It seems a bit reductive to say he "plays a million times better" for Holland
