If you play the Dutch as well, then it could be an idea to try to "change openings", with ...Ne4 and ...f5.

Something like this:
1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 g6  3.c4 Bg7 4.g3 d6 5.Bg2 O-O 6.O-O Ne4 7.Qc2 f5

It's probably most effective if you know that your opponent plays 2.Nc3 or some other minor variation after 1.d4 f5.

Time has already told, I think. It´s an interesting way to complicate the game but objectively White is slightly better.

No, the Gallagher is this sort of thing:  6...Nbd7 7. Nc3 e5 8. e4 ed 9. Nxd4 Re8 10. h3 a6.

Incidentally I recently noticed Sam Shankland giving 10...a6 a "?!", and saying that he thinks the old way of playing (with moves like ...Nc5, ...a5 and ...c6) is better.  I would think that both are generally regarded as "+/=" with best play, and so it should be difficult to make such a distinction.


Oh yeah! I remember now. But honestly, it seems dubious to play ...c5 leaving a weakness on d6 in the center. Time will tell.

Maybe transpose to a Grunfeld? It is what a lot of kidders do anyway.
  

If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.

When aggressive means creating attacking chances against the white King then it's probably 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.g3 Bg7 4.Bg2 0-0 5.Nf3 d6 6.0-0 Nc6 7.Nc3 e5 8.d5 Ne7. This variation doesn't have a particularly good reputation, doesn't score very well plus White can avoid it with 7.d5.

So perhaps the best candidate for aggression is a transposition to some Benoni. 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.g3 c5 but White does not have to play 4.d5, as 4.Nf3 is good enough. The same is true if Black plays ...c5 later.

If Black is willing to play the Pirc/Modern another option is to postpone ...Nf6. 1.d4 g6 2.c4 Bg7 3.g3 (3.Nc3 d6 4.Nf3 Nc6) d6 4.Nc3/4.Nf3/4.Bg2 Nbd7 and 5...e5 heading for an early ...f5.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Probably the variation most agressive and playable is the Gallagher Variation, although it's probably a bit more risky that the ...Nc6 and ...a6 try, which is also worth a look-see.
