      Honestly, I was concerned when he was coming on. But he was very good, frustratingly good because it makes me ask why he can’t do that every game!
      Only negative was he turned into bambi on ice when he could have made it 6.

      Ran his heart out last night - almost in the role he played at Newcastle.

      Was out on his feet last 15.

      One thing putting in a performance like that, another thing doing when you come on 15 minutes into a game we were really struggling in at that point.

      Fantastic.

      An excellent performance from Gini. Just wish he good be this good on a consistent basis. Will get a run in the side now Ox is injured.

      Time to deliver.

      I like this kid he improves his game and is clearly listening to Jürgen. Very sorry for Alex but not at all upset that Gini will play.

      Yep we have to thank Gini for scoring his first ever away goal. If it wasn't for that goal, we would be a miserable bunch right now!

      Waited so long for an away goal and then when he gets one, it could well turn out to be the most important of his career.

      Worth the wait!

      Yet another exceptional performance today. He was my MOTM. Can be a world class midfielder if he carries on this way.

      Never doubted him. I think he’s quality and expecting a massive performance from him in Kiev

      I just love how he is so composed and aware of his surroundings, and how he uses his body to hold/brush off players is something else. I think he controls the midfield better than anyone else in our team when he's on fire.

      I really do dream of a midfield 3 of, Wijnaldum, Keita and Ox.

      I want a lot more from him next season because I think he is capable of doing far more the lad is just brilliant but needs to show more.

      I know there will be a lot that won't 't agree with me, but I think  he reads the game well and is very good tactically. I still think he is our best footballing midfielder (even ahead of Fabinho and Keita), but the biggest problem with Wijnaldum seems to be himself, he just seems scared and doesn't believe in his ability. Maybe with better midfielders around him, we could see Wijnaldum at his best.

      Just went through the CIES Football Observatory list of most valuable transfers and noticed that our Wijnaldum is valued at 80 mil euro. Oxlade & Wijnaldum are my favourite midfielders in our current squad. However, with both Keita & Fab done and Fekir 'highly likely' to join, I wouldn't mind us selling Wijnaldum to add a CB, GK or ST or if we try to go for a cash + player swap for any CB/ST/GK.

      Gini is no doubt a solid player, maybe too solid to sit on the bench majority of a season when we have obvious gaps at other places in our squad.



      Any thoughts?

      I really rate the guy and think that there'll be a hell of a player there when he realises just how good he can be. However we are rather bloated in the midfield area, I would say Lallana is in the shop window and Milner would have to accept being a bit part player.

      I would say keep him til atleast January, which gives us time to settle the new signings in and ease Chamberlain back into the side. Assuming none of our signings are massive flops or we get an injury crisis (knock on wood) reassess his role in the side then.

      Given the style we play, amount of games to be played and Klopp rotation policy the need to keep Gini is greater then using his funds to improve other area's of the team. He has a big role in the squad and with Fabinho in the mix now Gini won't be required as much to play deeper role in the mid-field as much as he did last season. He is at his best further up the pitch link the mid-field and attack though he does need to score more if he is going to be playing that role more effective.

      Will Wijnaldum be content with potentially being our 6th/7th midfielder (even if we don't sign a #10)?

      I think he's a handy rotational player for us, and would like to keep him, but not sure he'd be keen to stay in such a diminished role.

      Talk of him perhaps joining Cocu at Fenerbahce. Just wishful thinking on their part? They couldn't afford to buy him for the approx 30 mil we should get for him.

      But surely he'll agitate for a move somewhere?

      With Fabinho and Keita coming in and Can going out we're only one body up on where we were last season, add in Ox's injury and the fact he isn't likely to be back until October (I think) then i'm sure Gigi will still get plenty of minutes. I guess he could be a candidate for a January leave but i'd be surprised if he went during this window.

      Personally, I am surprised there is even talk of selling him or him being 6th/7th choice. I think he was immense second half of season, and even before then, he had shown world class traits. Like I said before, when he is on his game, I really don't think there is a better combative midfielder out there.

      At the rate our midfielders pick up injuries he'll get plenty of game time even at 6th or 7th choice, although I think he's higher up the pecking order than that.
