Gini Wijnaldum's legacy at Liverpool

Gini Wijnaldum and Sadio Mane kickstarted the Jurgen Klopp era at Liverpool. They were the two big signings during the German’s first summer at Anfield.  Both played a significant part in getting the club into the top four during the 2016/17 campaign. The pair had a key role in the Reds reaching the 2017/18 Champions League final. They repeated the feat the year after, with Liverpool claiming their sixth European Cup in Madrid. A year later, the duo helped the …

Liverpool must sign a Gini Wijnaldum replacement

So here we are, in a post-Gini Wijnaldum Liverpool world. The Dutchman was a wonderful servant for the Reds during five hugely successful seasons and will forever go down as a modern-day legend at Anfield. Much like Ronnie Whelan in the 1980s, he rarely made the headlines - both had a penchant for scoring big goals, though - but he was vital to everything Liverpool did. He knitted the midfield together beautifully, did endless unsung off-the-ball work and was a …

Liverpool midfielder agrees Reds lost Champions League tie in "really intense" first half

Gini Wijnaldum knows that Liverpool's defeat in Madrid on Tuesday was down mainly to a below-par first-half performance from The Reds. A dire showing from Jürgen Klopp's men in the opening half of Tuesday night's game against Real Madrid saw Liverpool go in 2-0 down at the break. Mohamed Salah pulled one back in the second half but Klopp's side ended up losing 3-1 on the night. Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com after the match, Wijnaldum was asked if the damage had …

Liverpool 2-0 Leipzig (4-0 aggregate): Player ratings as Reds march on

There will be attempts to dampen this initially torturous, eventually comfortable victory. Leipzig, it will be said, are the ideal opponents for this one-dimensional iteration of Liverpool. The depleted Reds' prospects of going all the way in the competition will be written off. However valid those reservations, this win offers supporters a precious feeling of contentment for, at the very least, four days. It is serene respite from the unrelenting domestic misery. Liverpool kept the tie alive as long as …
Liverpool Cruise Into Champions League Quarter Finals After Leipzig Victory

Liverpool Cruise Into Champions League Quarter Finals After Leipzig Victory

Liverpool cruised into the quarter-final of the Champions League after a 2-0 victory over Red Bull Leipzig in Hungary. Goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane gave the six times winners a deserved victory over the Bundesliga side. Were it not for poor finishing, with Diogo Jota, Mane, and Salah all guilty of blowing big chances, the Reds would have won by a far bigger margin. With Fabinho back marshaling the midfield -- allowing Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak to …
What went wrong against Chelsea

What went wrong against Chelsea

Losing and getting beat are two different things entirely. Many things in football are random and this can play a huge part in performances not getting the results they deserve. You can take those losses on the chin, sort of. For example, in some games Liverpool have lost this season, they’ve been the better side, they’ve had the better chances, but they’ve not had the required luck. Play them 100 times over and the Reds win 95 of them, that …

Liverpool midfielder believes Sheffield United win gives Reds much-needed confidence before facing Chelsea later this week

Liverpool star Gini Wijnaldum is hopeful his side's victory at Sheffield United could be the start of a winning streak for The Reds. A goal from Curtis Jones and a deflected effort by Bobby Firmino gave Liverpool all three points at Bramall Lane on Sunday night. The Reds controlled much of the game from start to finish and the clean sheet may work wonders for the confidence of the young centre-back pairing of Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak. Adrián, in …
