I don't see him as a pure playmaker, he is an off mid, he is so skill and stylish that looks like floating in the pitch.
On the other hand he can play as playmaker anyway, but hasn't the typical second march of an Aimar, Ronie, and haven't the superb passing ability of an Alex, Roman.

All around his only problem all this years, is a question of perception, he is so classy that many times he looks too much cold, and others he really is, nevertheless he make important golas, assists, and is a player that can manage lots of options, is precisly there where relies his worst aspect for actuall football paradigms, he isn't really a true playmaker, he isn't really a truly central def mid (he was great in a duo with Mascherano), he isn't a super pace carrilero, or Nedved, Kaka off mid, he in many ways is a wonderfull old time 8, with long range shot passing, with great short passing too, with great dribbling, but you can't put a team on his shoulders, at least right now, cause a great aspect is that he is continuing improving.

Is a great player that can become better than you expect if you use him as an old 8, or even as an organizative cental def mid (5), but if he began to play bad, may be you won't have much patience with him, cause he is too damn cold and looks like he doesn't care many times, which btw isn't is just his personality.

He is a typical old times player of "galera y baston", I hope he has a great career in Europe, is a pleasure to watch him play.

I agree with the description of him as a classic no 8. But I hink you shouldn't undeestimate his ability to bring goals from midfield. He reminds me very much of Veron pre Manchester United.

Veron in argentina was a great 8, in Samp too, then in Lazio, even playing great started the 10 bullshit to grab some big bucks (and forget the typical diagonals he used to make, and become a classy but almost saionery player).

I never understimate Lucho's scoring, in fact he is great at that, as every great 8, not a scoring machine but he or appears by surprise in the box, or he makes his own move, or he shots from long distance...his only problem is too think of him as apure def 5 or as aplaymaker, and the cold personality, is one of the younger players I wish most to have a great carreer, he is finesse in a pretty ugly world...

Lucho Gonzalez is great. I've been following him since his move to River from Huracan and I'm thoroughly impressed. For me his main asset is his teamwork actually counts - in the sense that he's always there to score goals and he provides great chances for teammates. He is not a flash, dynamic player, more of a classy self-assured and composed midfielder with an all-round game. Tremendous shot on him and his technique is spot on. Very versatile also and can play anywhere in midfield. Very good 'team' player too which is what I like.

A class act :)

class act, reminds me of the oso ardiles
you are right there is aresemble, and that is why I think he is an old guard 8 as Argentina used to have, and had with Veron till he sold out as a 10
