Gini on loan if Twatter is to be believed.

Not for one minute do I believe we would go back for Gini, we have moved on now and I would see that as taking away potential game time for Curtis, Harvey and Fabio. I would trust these can raise their games come out of this season a lot better for it.

No thanks….

Don't really want him back. But he could cover fabs or hendo if they weren't fit. The 1 thing with gini is he was always fit to play. A steady 7 out of 10 player.

{Ed001's Note - only if he was getting a 7 just for turning up! He was a ghost of a player, who would do one turn in 90 minutes and that would be enough for most fans to think he was actually contributing. He had maybe 3 games in his Liverpool career where he was better than, at the very best, a 6.}

I'm with Ed001 on this. I think Gini had a subconscious attitude issue. His best games were always at Anfield against top 6 opposition or in European knockout stages. Away from home or any team below the top 6 he coasted and was borderline useless.

People often talk about his 2 goals against Barcelona, but forget that he was dropped from a decimated starting XI because he was so poor that season. I do think he had more than 3 good games, but i wouldn't say it was higher than 20 and that's across 5 seasons! Ox, Keita and Thiago were all signed to supplant him and Gini was fortunate they were all injured a lot.

Thank him for his service but for Fowlers sake leave him in the past where he belongs.

{Ed001's Note - it was an exaggeration I admit, to make a point, but I am not sure it was anything like as many as 20.}

Is that the Barcelona game where Gini’s goals didn’t count and Origi won us the CL on his own?

20 Jun 2022 15:40:37
Bit harsh eds. Maybe I was generous when I said steady 7 too though. But as stated I don't really want him back. more so with the way he left. He wanted to leave so. goodbye.

I'm not saying the didn't count JK, and that game will immortalize him in our history. But it says a lot about his time here that those 45 minutes are arguably the only stand out moment from over 200 games. I had no problem respectfully thanking him for his service, but that doesn't mean we have to be blinkered and pretend he was some kind of lynchpin. He was carried 90% of the time he played.

Mk my commented wasn’t intentionally aimed at you. I just jumped on other comments in the past on the back of yours. If people were to be believed Origi also took that quick corner to himself that night and he was also the ball boy who retrieved it off the pitch ?.

20 Jun 2022 16:21:26
Mk just on your Wiji comment mate I’ve no intentions of wanting him back either. He moved on and so have we. I thought the lad did well for us when he was here and agree he was never great but I disagree with the fact that he shyed away from 90% of games.

The guy used to play 50 games a season so if he didn’t show up for 90% of them then that technically means we played with 10 men for 45 games a season. Klopps a world class coach but you don’t win titles playing with 10 men for 90% of a season.

Wiji did his bit but his LFC time is done.

Gini was a different player for Holland. A goal scoring AMF.

I think part of the issue was that he played very tactically for Klopp and could really score when the manager gave him freedom.

Maybe his games for us were more tactical than most fans understand.

20 Jun 2022 17:03:25
I'm not saying he didn't show up, but in most games he was just a body. Cut out passing lanes, rolled a few 5-10 yard passes to a better player. Spun around in circles with the ball whilst surrounded by 3 players, which looked like grafting but was his own fault for playing at 3 miles an hour.

He was a weak link in a very good team. But then we'd play Man City or Bayern Munich and he'd suddenly put in some effort for the International TV cameras and often be one of the better performers. I found him incredibly frustrating because he had to ability, but i think he was mentally the weakest player in the starting line-up.

I'm not going to belittle other peoples differing views like MikeyB just tried to do. We all see the game differently after all. For me, Wijnaldum's greatest asset was his fitness. Like i say, he has his place in our history and by hook or crook he's 'earned it'. Just hope he stays in the history section, that's all.

Strangely enough JK- wasn't the ballboy who gave the ball quickly to Trent v Barcelona a kid who ended up on our youth team? Tyler Morton or someone, or was that a myth?

20 Jun 2022 18:03:12
Shabby he is in the youth set up mate but it’s not Morton. I believe it’s Oakley Cannonier.

Gini played his part and recycling the ball well. My issue with him was he only ever did the basics when is was clear he could have done more given his international showings. Yes international football standards are pants but he still hd ability but didn’t show it in a red shirt. If I had a penny for everytime I shouted at the tele because he didn’t show for a pass I’d pay off my mortgage. Still prefer him over Keita though just for being available to be average, rather than injured most of the time and average the rest.

{Ed0666's Note - I must say Gini shielded the ball extremely well.
