      How come it seems every time he is with Holland he's banging the goals in and racking up the assists but with us he struggles to hit a barn door for months on end :laugh:

      Just asking the question as I don't watch International games, does he play the same position for us as he does for Holland?

      No mate, plays more of an attacking midfield role.

      Maybe Klopp might take notice just like he did with Hendo when he was playing for Engerland and push him further up the pitch. The more goals from more contributors can only be a good thing.

      What a performance. In this case, box to box midfielder meant from our SIX-yard box to theirs. Great stuff.

      I don't get into OPTA stats much but he must have covered acres of ground.

      Really? He had a good year for them when he came over from PSV. the complaint I remember is that he would disappear for long periods in "big" games. But if anything, he's shown he is an especially good "big game" player. Credit to the analytics and scouting teams for finding this gem.

      Fact is, he was already good and has been coached into a standout midfield player who would help any team. Sounds like he's quite a good character in the group as well.

      It bothers me after watching that performance on Sunday why he can't put in those type of showings more often in the same way he finds his scoring boots when he is wearing Orange. I thought that game was one of his best performance in a red shirt, he really was the star in the middle of the park. He always good keeping the ball in tight area's and working his way out with possession but Sunday he was driving the play forward working between the lines with the ball which don't see him do a whole lot along with keeping and winning the ball in the middle.

      His close control and awareness in tight spaces is close to the best I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. He does it time and again, picking the ball up deep in our half, dodging 3 or 4 players and finding a superb forward pass - that is f**king difficult to do and worth it’s weight in gold.

      He is an exceptional talent and would genuinely walk into any midfield in world football, he’s that good.

      He’s not on the Balon d’Ore list for nothing.

      I love Gini I really do but I feel he’s more likely to fall on his face in that situation than score when he’s playing in red.

      A monster in the middle of the pitch but seems to get a little rush of blood when he is through on goal for us.

      To be fair, he’s not usually up against top opposition like Estonia when playing for the reds
