      Like I said last night he looked like the Origi of three seasons ago...

      It is the third goal in this clip that made me start to think that he would be a great addition  for Liverpool unfortunately we hard not seen this player in a while

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olwjT1i-6X8

      Because he was pretty seriously injured by that clog sh*te hawk ex blue nose

      He went away to get a season of football last year to get back to a level.. didn't quite work out.. now he's had a season back here with Jürgen and is starting to look something like his old self in the last 4 months

      I have no idea who will play in the final but somehow I think Jürgen has an idea he has done OK so far this season maybe people understand now why some of us have said all season long leave it to Jürgen he knows best.

      He really didn’t do too much wrong tonight. If that would be his default level, he’s definitely worth keeping.

      It was his default level for a couple of months before his injury. All we can hope is that the past few months have done his confidence a world of good. He just seemed to have lost that confidence/arrogance and belief in his own ability after the injury. Never looked anywhere near the player he used to be when we loaned him out to Wolfsburg where I watched him regularly.

      Yesterday was Origi's 27th goal for Liverpool in 96 appearances. Only 42 of those have been starts, the other 54 off the bench. No penalties either. Not a bad record at all. (Didn't look up the numbers myself, so they may be slightly off). That's not a bad record at all.

      I've never had any particular opinion about the lad, he was just our back up player, talented youngster that during his years with us has been just meh in my eyes. But when I was at Anfield back in 2016, The Kop were showing him so much love during that game vs Sunderland that left me baffled, I was really surprised by it.

      Today, I guess I realized that the Kop, always knows best. Divock lad, you deserve a lifelong contract with us, so you can just continue to do your thing. Madness, absolute madness last night. He sure knows how to score some late/crucial stunners.

      It always surprises me how supportive the Kop is of Origi whenever he plays. Whenever he is on the pitch, no exception, I always hear the Kop chant his name.

      I've always had a soft spot for him since coming into the Belgium squad as a 19-year-old lad and scoring at the World Cup in Brazil.

      I'd love for him to stay another season, he'll only get better.

      Think he is only 23 look at how Mo come on as he matured . He is a cracking option and who would you replace him with and at what cost

      He's 24 mate.

      Obviously there are better strikers out there if we wanted to replace Divock but as a squad player he has definitely earned his place for next season.

      He actually did ok at Wolfsburg (not great by any means) just so happened they were sh*t that year and nearly got relegated. I’ve always liked him would love him to be here next season although he might want to move on and play more often which would be fair enough

      Still not as good has he was, and not blasting by players...
      Still good with his head and still know how to get in the right place but seem a bit lacking

      Think Divock knows he gets special support here, and is definitely repaying it. I also think it is why he will chose to stay, despite probably interest from other clubs this summer.

      No complaints if true, but would like to see him play more as the 9 than a wide inside forward or right winger.

      #i am sure Jürgen will take your advice.
      He has been first class and his attitude is perfect. He knows this is the place to be and he is a young player who is improving. Just compare him to Martial for instance.He is a great alternative to Mo when we need something different just look at how important to our season this kid has been hats off to the lad

      big wow 24 strikers best years are often 26 plus. We could buy hazard but his standard isn't going to sit on the bench and nobody is going to replace Mo our double Golden boot winner are they. This kid fits Jurgens philosophy perfectly work hard and continue to improve

      The post I made is very similar to yours, have a think about it...

      got some great young lads coming through and they need game time just like Trent. I am more than comfortable with our squad players leaving like Moreno need better quality coming in to replace them

      You are just making a meal out of nothing with your snide remark. Stop being so negative, especially after that win on Tuesday ffs! You are such a downer.

      This guy has set the bench mark for a sub.  He isn't as good as the front three at least at the moment, but am not sure if we reversed the roles and gave them little cameos here and there that they would be able to return such impressive results.  For me until a few weeks ago, I wanted him and sturridge to go that was my opinion.  Not now,  I think if we can sign him up for a longer contract we should keep him.  Like many have said he's only 24 his best years are in front of him.

      That's a very good point mate. I agree that we have always been more of a club that creates stars, rather than buying them. Like you say, for sure the mighty Kop has a lot to do with it.

      Talks of him being given a new contract.

      Quite pleased with him actually. Scored in very important matches for us in the past, and can also score against fodder. Just hope he improves more next season.

      I think we should sign him up for another contract.  I feel he needs to play more in the middle.  Our front 3 is fluid but he have central attack role as his priority.   I think with Sturridge most like gone this would be a good opportunity.  I would buy some one else that can play in the wide forward role.
