      Well if Gini is on such low paid contract compared to other players givin what Gini has given us you can't blame him for moving on

      I'm sure the club are offering him a nice amount per week to resign.

      I think its more down to wanting something different, sun on the back and a nice family lifestyle out in Spain.

      He will be committed till the end. And I've total respect for whatever he wants to do next

      Then when's he f**king off to Barca.

      You also forgot in your assessment of how much of a shitbag Gini can be when the game turns into a battle.

      If we can replace with better then it's "see you Gini la!"

      Bollocks he’s a big game player don’t recall him shitting the bed in big games. He’s single handedly won us games -City, Barca, atletico goal and assist last year, scored in the derby. Don’t recall him bottling it, he will be a huge loss to this team plus the mans never injured.

      I dont think the lad will end up at Barca.. not going toPlan for Koeman... it’s a crumbling empire as is Madrid...

      His future is here and I hope the club revisit their offer and give the lad what he wants..

      Really, can tell the numerous times from my kop vantage point over the last three years I've seen him go MIA.

      Ffs it took Thiago coming on against Newcastle and winning two headers for Gini to even attempt challenging for a header and Gini started the f**king game.

      Lucky you to have a Kop vantage point it doesn’t make your view on a player more valid then someone who isn’t privileged to have one. So he didn’t win a few headers against Newcastle doesn’t make him a bottler on the contrary the lads ever present and available pushing his body all the time. Don’t think I’ve ever seen Modric or xavi contest a header let alone win one they’re ballondor winners.

      Gini came on as a sub 5 minutes before Thiago in that Newcastle game though?

      Really comes into his own when we are keeping a lead. Circling around taunting and shielding the opposition. Hilarious at times the turns he does with 2 or 3 men around him. And if for any reason it does go wrong he hits the floor and gets the foul.

      Fantastic player.

      As said he's so so good at holding the ball when protecting a lead.

      Sign Gini please.

      Come on Edwards, give him the extra year if he wants it, he's earned it.

      He was absolutely superb yesterday!

      Hes brilliant.

      I do have one gripe with him though, and it was highlighted perfectly last night in the move that led to Kanes first knock. Gini had the ball and had about 20 yards of space to run the ball into. It either bscks spurs  defenders off or creates space to knock a ball in for the front me. He carried it 2 yards at a sliw pace and passes sideways. We then lost the ball.

      Bobbys goal came from Hendo in a similar area to Gini, as I describe above, but Hendo runnng the ball at spurs who back off allowing the pass to mane who squares for Bobby.

      He does it for Holland so why not us? Instruction?

      I think it is a case of safety first, but it drives me crazy as well. Having said that I think he's been more positive lately, but there's still room for improvement or Klopp taking the shackles off him.

      Problem is I don’t think he wants 😥

      Him running literal circles around Spurs defenders was good entertainment.

      When we got the two goal cushion he was immense not saying he was poor before but the way we controlled the game he had a massive part.  We are going to truly miss him especially in the big games.  Hopefully he does a u turn in the summer not holding much hope though.

      Fifteen LFC players......Eight starters (when healthy) and seven bench players..... have bigger weekly salaries than Gini.

      Six mids...many of whom spend more time on the physio table than the pitch.....earn higher wages than Gini who has averaged 35 PL appearances since 2016

      Clearly Gini no longer wants to be LFC's taken-for-granted bargain who is paid 2.3 mill less than both Keita and Ox and 3.3 mill less than Milner each year

      Good for him for going the distance on his current contract forcing LFC to bid against the big boys.
      I wonder what Klopp's real sentiments are when he looks at his future options at midfield and wonders which of these players can match Gini's match day readiness.

      Ox....too funny
      Naby......get real
      Milner.....5 yrs older, not a realistic starter/long term option
      Henderson....high mileage/perpetually nicked
      Thiago.....long history of missing games
      Fabhino....physical player/ back line necessity

      Add in the higher waged Shaqiri who gets midfield minutes when he's not in soft tissue distress

      7 question marks who all earn more than the LFC's midfield rock.

      Not only does Gini deserve a significant bump in pay, he should demand a signing bonus from his future team that won't have to pay transfer fees.
