      its seeing people scrambling to look as if they have a clue by quoting stats they haven't a clue about that is amusing. The people that use them for their jobs actually know what they are doing unlike some who just pretend to understand them.
      I understand a few stats the league table and the Score at the end of the game. Who the f**k sends letters these days

      I just thought the way you act on this forum you wouldn’t know how to send a email  ;)

      Stats are the stats, you know if it says 2+2 = 5 there is no debate  :D

      Are we talking about penetrating and forward momentum?

      I do agree with you even without looking at stats, Wijnaldum is a safe distributor from deep. Where Hendo likes to spread the play out to full backs more frequently, I noticed Wijnaldum is more about keeping the ball within his proximity, but ultimately both are safe distributors and are not as forward thinking as Fabinho and Keita imo.

      He would be player of the season if it wasn’t for the giant master at the back.

      Last night, he had diarrhea Klopp said. What a performance for a sick player! Keep it up Gini, so delicate on the ball.

      Somebody on here said he had the shits which is just about all you need to know.
      World class goal is the only description needed right now.

      Think it was at half time I noticed him make a dash for the tunnel.

      First thoughts was he has a dose of the scoots. 😂

      Fantastic performance and goal.

      He scored in one of my sweetest memories of Liverpool, the club and the city. New years eve, 31 December 2016, against Man City. I had trains booked to London and tickets to watch the fireworks, but convinced the missus - who had just arrived in the city from Brazil a couple days earlier - to stay in Liverpool so we could go to the game. And then bang, 1-0, a Gini header, in her first ever game at Anfield. She loved it. It was a freezing cold day but I'll always think fondly of it.

      Why I'm talking about that, I have no idea, I guess I just wanted to say I really appreciate Gini Wijnaldum.

      Its funny how you can not rate a player until he plays beside another... Think the first two name on the team sheet as far as the mid field goes should be Fab' and Gini... A total awesome midfield pairing... Add to them whom ever you like whether that be Keita,Shaqiri or Milner,but start with Fab' and Gini

      What a f**king Goal.

      Never knew he had it in him.

      Brilliant goal and great to have him back. We missed him, big time.

      Theory that Gini has been playing further back to help with the defensive side as his reading of the game is so good but now we have the midfielders like Fab and Naby, who can excel in that position we are more likely to see him as an advanced midfielder.

      His skill set certainly is that of an attacking midfielder esp in making those late runs, hence why I have been slightly critical of his output but in hindsight maybe he has been in a leash to marshal the defensive side.

      Love the fact no one had him in their first 11 when Keita and Fabinho were signed in the summer.

      This guy took his game to the next level for club and country - now he’s one of the first names on the team sheet

      Wijnaldum - Fabinho - Keita for me.

      Looks like it was me & someone else (+1'ing you) agreeing with you ;)
