    Georginio Wijnaldum has said Liverpool’s title fortunes rest on sustaining the form that dismantled Bournemouth on Saturday, when he shone throughout the 3-0 victory despite suffering illness.
    The midfielder capped a man-of-the-match display with a delightful goal, his first at Anfield since October 2017, as Jürgen Klopp’s side reacted impressively to Manchester City overtaking them in the title race. Wijnaldum was named in the lineup only on the morning of the game, having missed training, through illness and he disclosed in graphic detail that he played while suffering with a stomach complaint.

    “On Thursday night I had a tablet from the doctor for my knee,” said the 28-year-old, who missed the draw at West Ham with an ongoing knee problem. “It was a tablet that could induce stomach pains. I took it and I had a pain and thought it was from the tablet. In the end I was vomiting and everyone was a little bit scared. I didn’t train on Friday and I didn’t sleep at the hotel either because they thought I might infect other players.
    “The manager called me and asked if I could play. I said I was as positive as I can be. In the morning I was still weak and had diarrhoea. The tablets helped a lot but even at half-time I had to run off quickly to get to the toilet. At half-time I thought: ‘Oh no’ but I ran inside and managed to control it!”

    Wijnaldum is confident he will recover from the illness and the knee condition during the 10-day break before Liverpool’s next game, against Bayern Munich. Klopp is taking his squad to a training camp in Spain. The Netherlands international said the Bournemouth victory was the perfect response to dropping points against West Ham and Leicester, and re-set the benchmark for the performance level required to win the Premier League.
    He added: “It is always a good response when you win. Three goals and a clean sheet makes it even better. We must make sure we respond every game, not just one game. It is difficult [competing with City] but we already knew from the beginning that it would be difficult. We have to control our results and performances. We have to give everything in every game and in the end see where we are. You could see at the beginning of the season we have improved. We just have to keep it going.”

    Yeah. Now we understand Gini’s Somewhat subdued celebration after his goal. All his energy was concentrated in keeping his shit from spraying out.

    He did look gaunt in the game. Here I was thinking his choice of lob was genius when really he was just holding back from shitting on the follow through

    He should not be so restrained anyway. The oposite can be good entertainment. Over here the singer of a rockband struggled with the same but insisted to run his normal show which at the time included entre the stage in a string like the bodybuilders use... during one of the more intense parts of the show the drummer left the drumset and started chasing the Singer around the stage. The audiens thought it was part of the show and cheered on but it was later discovered that the singer har actually sprayed shit on the drummer....

    During his playing days that sarky bluenose t!t Lineker once had to rush off the pitch to deal with a similar problem.

    Pity he's now spouting it from the other end.

    Didn't he actually drop one on the pitch in the world cup, just before taking a penalty?

    Edit - not when he was taking a penalty (was getting confused with someone who threw up just before taking one), but he did shit himself. Then again it was against Jackie Charlton's hoofers, so he was just adding to the shit already on the pitch

    Yes indeed - well remembered Tom.  It was just shy of 30 years ago and I must have sold myself an altered memory of the nasty details in the meantime, just to try and escape the horrible mental image.

    I've never been so insulted in all my days.  How dare you confuse me with that jug-eared dingbat?

    He's a snide, vastly overrated (as a broadcaster) Evertonian tw@t who's waaaayyy too pleased with himself.  And I say that not just because of his blueslime past - a "Big Issue" seller I used to know told me the most unpopular one he had ever tried to sell was when Lineker was on the cover one time.  Quite right too IMHO.

    He's a very excellent broadcaster, but he's several years into his vaguely sneery "I know I'm good" BBC comfort zone, and that makes him get more annoying and smug as time goes on......and he was an annoying, smug cunt in the first place.

    Yeh - he's smug because he's pretty good though. He says the odd thing that pisses me off, but on the whole he's eminently watchable.

    Lineker also appears to have hands made of wood. Or porcelain. Someone must have said a few years ago, 'Gary, love, be more expressive with your hands, it's good on TV,' so then he started trying but he moves them like they're puppet hands. I find it so distracting that, thankfully, I never have any idea what he's chuntering on about.

    I don't mind him either. In fact, I actually quite like him.

    He's got a really poor reputation in the broadcasting world among those who've worked with him. And even Evertonians, generally, don't have anything good to say about him. And in this fevered MeToo world, it's quite a surprise he's not yet been dragged into the controversy.
