      Gini Wijnaldum (Fenerbahce)
      Jul 11, 2018 02:30:10 pm
      Unhappy to be down the pecking order for LFC"s midfield.
      Liverpool given the green light for him to move.
      Would be reunited with his former PSV boss, Philip Cocu.

      I would be absolutely gutted if he leaves. I hope this is not true, but usually, there is no smoke without fire :(

      What??!! He’s been heavily involved ever since he joined. A bit of competition comes in and he wants to f**k off? Must be complete bullshit and if it’s not, then Wijnaldum needs to take a good long look at himself

      Yeah, I actually would have put him down as 1st choice midfielder in a midfield 3 with Fabinho and Keita. Very shocked at this tbh.

      Dont believe this, rather dont want to!  :-\

      If we nab Fekir, Jürgen is gonna play a lot of systems that suits each one's personality and also mix-match the group so that they compliment each other effectively.

      Losing a 1st team player in the area where we needed to strengthen before this summer? Nah.. cant see this happening.

      Well competition for places has increased but f he doesn't fancy fighting for his place then he can f off, wrong attitude. I do however think this is complete BS

      Has to be complete and utter bullshit because there hasn't really come in more competition.

      Fabinho for the #6, basically replacing Can who was ahead of Wijnaldum for that position most of the time anyway. That's competition for Henderson. Status quo.

      At the #8's we have Keita, Chamberlain (who is still out injured for 4 months or something?), an aging and injury prone Lallana and Milner who won't be around for much longer and surely isn't ahead of Wijnaldum in the pecking order.

      So basically it's Keita, Chamberlain and Wijnaldum long term, three players for two positions. That's the same amount of competition that he faced this season and I think he played the most minutes of all our midfielders? It's perfectly possible he'll play a bit less, but given the amount of games we're likely to play, that's not even a bad thing, keeping him fresh for the big games in which he excels.

      Just like PM, I think he'll be instrumental this season playing in a number of roles and positions. Klopp loves him.

      Would be disappointed to see Gini leave.
      We're hardly overloaded with options either, especially given injury concerns/problems last season.
      Keita & Fabinho signed but Can gone & Chamberlain injured. Lallana injury prone.
      No indication that Gini wouldn't get games this season.
      Maybe that changes if Fekir and Shakiri come in but not before then.

      Rather he stayed, he may be inconsistent but he's still a good option to have. Last thing we want is being short on midfielders again.

      I can understand Gini Wijnaldum would be anxious.
      Henderson first choice at DM at the moment, Fabinho competing and could even take his place.
      Keita attacking midfielder and Ox as central.


        Keita
                               Ox
                Fabinho

      Shaqiri, Keita, Ox, Fabinho, Hendo, Milner .. if Fekir comes then Gini could be pushed back a bit.
      Can't see Lallana going back into any of those positions.
      I do think Gini would be jumping the gun a bit to move, because Milner will retire soon.
      There is no guarentee Shaqiri will fit in and there will be times players will be injured.
      It is possible we are looking at adding more into Midfield and it is not in the press yet.

      I like Gini and would be disappointed if he leaves but i understand where he's coming from if he feels playing time will be limited.

      Fabinho and Henderson take the #6 spot so Gini would be fighting for the 2 other midfield spots where we have Keita, Milner, Lallana and Ox already here plus the potential addition of a CAM as it appears we are seriously looking at getting one. That'd be 6 players for 2 midfield spots, and i imagine Keita will take one of those spots permanently, so not a lot of playing time available except for rotation or injury fill in. I can see why that would not sit well with Gini, who at 27yo is at or near his peak years and would want to be playing more frequently.

      Let's hope he stays because he'd be a fantastic depth / sub option to have.

      Doubt it.

      I don’t rate him as highly as others but we can’t be selling players now. Especially after we finally added some depth in the middle.

      I personally think it's just Turkish journos trying to drum up speculation for players out of the reach of their clubs by linking them to previous coaches.

      I do feel like Gini will still want considerable game time to stay. But I believe he still has three years left on his deal, and I'm quite doubtful anyone is paying 25-30 mil for just a solid mid (after many clubs have already splashed some cash). The only likely candidate would be another top club needing some depth, which would put him in no better position than he's already in.

      Don't think he's a great loss. Average at best. If and whoever comes in who's better than Gini,  i would think he won't get much chance to feature in games, thus he has made the right decision.

      No way would we sell. We have lost Can and Ox is out for the season. We needed to bring up our midfield numbers, not lessen them!

      Nah. Hendo is nailed on IMO. I do want him to stay though with Ox being injured there's no sense in us losing depth.

      Hes not a player that excites me but he can do a good job for the team when called upon.

      Henderson as nailed on starter, I certainly hope not for the majority of games, assuming Fabinho plays why on earth would we need 2 DM's?

      The way I see it, you have to factor in Keita and Fabinho's play style, both like ball to feet, comfortable in tight spaces and like to keep the ball moving. One will be playing as an attacking midfielder, the other a DM, so we can either go for another attacking midfielder/10 (Lallana or Shaqiri) or a box-boxer.

      Hendo, Wjinaldum and Milner are more than capable of playing the box-box role, but I favour Wijnaldum because he is a better  footballer and I feel more compatible with Fabinho and Keita than the others.... on paper.

      He is the Captain. Would Klopp not play his Captain when given the chance?
