      Not that I'm inclined in that way but a good looking lad and along with Karius, Can..........is this the new FSG strategy to market to the better 50% of the population?

      Kuyt has been speaking very highly of him, a player he really rates

      £9m, what a deal. Loved that guy.

      Hat-trick against the scum, winning FA Cup goal against the scum, opened the scoring late on against Inter in the CL, scored winning pen to put us through to CL final, scored our only goal in the 07 CL final, winning goal against Everton, equaliser against Arsenal in 112th minute etc. etc. IF Wijnaldum can do these types of things for us then his critics will forget all about the amount we paid.

      Kuyt was very underrated by many, but in my mind, he's one of our legends.
      Top f**king drawer.
      He gave everything he had in every game, and scored a few as well.
      Top, top player. Can't praise him highly enough.

      If this fella has the same attitude and talent to match, we're in for a treat.

      He was a great player, just not a particularly instinctive finisher, fluffed his shots far to often. But he always gave 100% for the team.

      Didn't he score a goal with his arse cheek once while pirouetting on the edge of the six yard box?

      Kuyt was superb player for us, role model on and off the pitch and example how every player should fight for the shirt. Happy birthday Dirk!

      To add some alternative thoughts, I was listening to a Toon fan on the radio and he said for £25 they'd bite our hand off - or something like that. Said he started the season well enough but faded afterwards.

      That said, it looks like Klopp isn't interested in high profile individuals, but players that'll fit into his team ethic

      The Reds completed the signing of Wijnaldum from Newcastle United

      looks familiar, we signed John Barnes from Watford not Barca or RM and he seemed to do OK

      Really chuffed with this signing as well. Our midfield lacked creativity and a goals threat and this lad seems to have plenty of that. He's two footed, he likes to get forward and can also play in the wider positions. I suspect he is likely to play as the furthest forward in a 3 rather than as one of a 2 but that will depend on the opposition and whether we are playing home and away. If he can match his goals tally of last year we will be in a very good place. Really like this signing.

      I don't know if it's been posted before elsewhere but this [full article] is an interesting and enlightening read...

      Klopp - Liverpool new boy Wijnaldum is a complete footballer who will live up to price tag
      “He’s a complete footballer,” Klopp told the ECHO.

      “He’s good with the ball, he’s really fit, he can run a lot, he’s quick in making decisions and he’s a threat for the goal.

      “He’s quite experienced, he was captain of PSV and he became a champion there - he knows about winning championships.

      “He’s had some bad moments in his career with injuries and then relegation with Newcastle. No career goes without scars.

      “I’ve known him as a player since he was 16 or 17 when I first watched him play for Rotterdam.

      “I really like following the journey of these guys, especially the special players and he’s a special player.

      “He went from Rotterdam to Feyenoord to Eindhoven. It’s been a good development. He can help us and we can help him.

      “He can bring a few things into the team that we didn’t have before.”...

      Despite strong interest from Tottenham and Everton, the discussion ended with the 25-year-old making it clear that Anfield was his preferred destination. Klopp had sold him his vision for the future.

      A deal between the clubs was quickly thrashed out with Liverpool agreeing to pay Newcastle £23million up front and a further £2million in add-ons.

      “I didn’t know him as a person before the meeting,” Klopp said.

      “We had a talk and I think after this talk we both knew we wanted to work together.

      “Obviously, I couldn’t just say: ‘Ask for whatever money you want, I’ll do the rest with our owners or whatever...’

      “The deal still had to be agreed but we both knew we wanted to do this.

      You asked me a question on another tread about the same player...The question being " How does Benteke in any way resemble Wijnaldum?"... I was referring to his stats and saying that Benteke's stats also looked good on paper...

      I do not know if he will suit our style of play. But I trust Klopp to know what he is doing

      When are we gona get some Steel in our midfield? Our midfield could go the way of Arsenals. Maybe plenty of goals but also a soft touch that goes missing in tight gritty games. Henderson, Milner and Can certainly are not up to it. We are gona need that balance of Silk & Steel , hopefully another player is on his way in and a few more on their way out.
