Georginio Wijnaldum

Recommended Posts

LFC Twitter fans were horrible to him. Hundreds of posts tagging him and asking him to leave for a myriad of reasons e.g., making room for Thiago, blocking Keita’s path, etc. Was horrible to read. It was final straw for me, and I quit Twitter about a year ago now.

It was always about the money. Everything else is a sideshow. Don't blame him - its a career. We should never under any circumstance have let him leave on a free however: worst commercial decision of the Klopp/Edwards era (yes, even worse than signing Keita).

He wanted a contract worth X, if you compare him to the likes of Salah, Mane, van Dijk he is in the queue behind them, he just is, so hes not going to get parity with them. He was good but he wasnt Souness, he wasnt Jimmy Case either. Im not knocking him he wanted the money that PSG would offer, and we cant go there so lets move on.

He should have been sold last summer for a fee to be reinvested (or even the summer prior .. but easy saying that now when he was a huge part of the league success ..). Letting players run contracts down to 0 is Arsenal or Liverpool of late 90s / early 00s behaviour.

Maybe yes. but given we lost Hendo, Keita was rubbish and we put Fabinho into centre back its probably as well  we didnt.

 

Caveat....all of this could happen again of course.

Yeah, FSG are just not frugal enough!

First thing I've heard Carra say that makes complete sense in ages.

Footballer leaves club for big money shocker!


I’m just surprised he defended us instead of standing gormlessly beside Gary Neville.

Read his quotes. He's not saying it's the fans' fault. He explicitly states he always felt the love inside the stadium, but didn't feel like his treatment on social media was fair. It's also pretty obvious it has nothing to do with him staying or going, we just wouldn't offer him what he wanted.

 

It just seems like he's been wanting to make a parting shot to the section of Twitter losers we have that follow the club, which is fair enough, although it is a bit weird as every club has them, but whatever. He had said he would reveal some grievance he had in due time. 

But every player gets abuse from what I can see, it's not club specific. Why does he think it'll be less at psg? Leaving because people on social media don't love you is fucking weird.

Just trying to sell having prioritised securing the biggest pay packet he possibly can to end his career, and read the room terribly.

 

No way he left because MaddRed98 called him a cock on Twitter.

Would love to see Gini win the Balon D'Or, his speech would be like Father Ted's at the Golden Clerics.

Twitter must be very grateful to Gini.

A grown man,a multi millionaire in fact,complaining about a few idiots on twitter abusing him. It's a poor excuse from Wijnaldum and is nothing to do with why he left. He could just have been honest and nobody would have batted an eyelid but he had to go and spout such utter bullshit to justify his mega money move. Shame on you.

Sorry, but he’s poured a blob of ink on his copy book. Did the Internet dickheads cause him to shaft Barcelona within hours of PSG calling offering even more money. He went for money (and I’ve no problem with that) but don’t try to claim it was the Internet. It was money, pure and simple.

I know this is a gag, as you know that I’d take Gini before Naby any day. I’m loathe to be seen as a Naby fan. I’m as underwhelmed with him as the next guy, I just reckon spending cash to replace him as our 4th/5th choice midfielder wouldn’t be the best use of our money given our back-up option at CF is Origi who we know isn’t good enough, and Trent’s back-up is a kid who just turned 18 and yet to make his debut.

I've seen how some of you quims react to mild criticism on this forum, so I wouldn't be so quick to judge how a player feels about getting genuine harassment from hundreds of people on twitter.
