Can has only just turned 22 himself and looks to be a one of Klopp's first names onto the team sheet.
Please read what's written rather than making it up as you go along.
Emre is technically, physically and mentally miles ahead. Tactically he's not the best but then he's only young and will develop that side of his game.
Henderson is our worst midfielder without any doubt. The amount of times if he can't pass backwards or sideways he will just hopelessly boot the ball forward really winds me up! Can't shoot, can't pass, no composure and worst of all bottles so many 50/50s for a captain. I honestly rate Allen higher as he works as hard and is much more efficient on and off the ball.
Jordan's out of form and carrying a injury... According to some he's now our worst midfielder and needs sold asap. You even had someone slating him for not taking a penalty in the final but taking the free kick on Wednesday. This place is comical at times. Make no mistake he's our best midfielder and captain and won't be going anywhere.
because the ONLY CMs that are better than Hendo are already playing for the likes Barcelona and RM... with a "little bit of improvement", they will come calling for him as well... it is the next step up for him surely!
are you for real?
Apart from his running off the ball, what else has he got going for him? He seems inept at turning with the ball, cant keep the ball under pressure even if his life has bearing on him to be able to do so, he cnt carry the ball foward n he tends to get rid of the ball as soon as he gets it. All these lackings limit him to be able to play CM position...
If I'm brutally honest I don't think either are good enough for a club like Liverpool, Both have there strengths but both have weakness also.
I'd pick Emre Can over Henderson every time though, Never been impressed with Henderson in the years he's been with us and staggered he was made captain.
Emre Can has improved I believe since Klopp arrived, Maybe the German connection helped I don't know.
I'd keep Emre Can for next season based on his improvement and age, Henderson should go to a mid table side.
Can has time on his side and we can loan him out and see how he develops or even keep him... Lucas would fetch us F all in transfer fees ... same goes for Hendo MKII A.K.A Milner... who else do you suggest we move on then?
cash in on him now.. we can worry about having "Squad players" like him once we even remotely resemble having a decent starting 11... especially in midfield.
Henderson is not having the best year. Some say it's because he's nursing and injury. Others say he's just out of form. Some say both.
The question is, will he come back or have we already seen his best?
Alonso had one poor season so Benitez started to shop around. Yet he's had another 8 or 9 years at the very top. Big loss to LFC.
On the otherhand, we managed to offload Torres for 50 million when he was shot of his best! Should we have refused the 50 million on the hope he could get back to his best?
Can has a good future ahead of him, realistically if we want to be back in the top 4 Henderson & Can are back up next season.
We need 2 top class central midfielders in the summer, the midfield has been a problem since we lost Mascherano and Alonso.
As for the question, it would have to be Can. I haven't rated Henderson from the beginning, but I'll give him credit for a good campaign in the 13/14 season. He also had some decent stats last season, but that masked over his sub standard performances.
Henderson can do ok in a team full of talent, where he doesn't have to fulfil (to a high standard) the broad spectrum of a central midfielders tasks. Look at who was surrounding him in 2013/14; he had Suarez, Sturridge, Sterling (in the form of his life), Coutinho, and Gerrard. He was able to play his high energy game and when he had the ball he simply needed to lay it off to one of the aforementioned.
I know Henderson is a favourite for some, but I find it difficult to believe that you'd see any worth had he been playing for another team. He seems to lack control and composure, especially when under just a little bit of pressure. His passing is ok, but again, below par when under a little bit of pressure, he's negative with the ball way too much, his interplay and general vision are lacking, and his movement on the ball in nearly nonexistent.
It says a lot when it's easier to list what Henderson seems to struggle with, as appose to what Can excels in. I like Can though, although he's still a bit raw, he's coming along nicely, and against City, Can absolutely bossed that midfield with a dominant performance.

both if possible. Can is better at defending and mopping up, Henderson is better slightly forward. tuff one to choose.
This thread makes laugh - people want to keep trash, when the main Klopp targets for the summer seem to be midfielders
