Admin, feel free to merge if there is similar thread. I cant help but feel underwhelmed by how mediocre our midfield is, how last two managers have ignored the need to adress our midfield is as cringe worthy as it gets. I hope JK will bring in quality midfielder to play alongside emre or hendo. Say we bring in someone like xhaka who can controll tempo of our play with his passing and composure on the ball, who between Can and hendo should be partnered with him?
I know it will be extremely audacious move for klopp to strip captaincy off hendo, I can see him captaining a side comes next season so my question is ,Can henderson up his game and be a good fit if played alongside a controlling midfielder in a 2 of 4231 formation? His timidness on the ball does my brain in, I havent seen a regular liverpool midfielder less composed than Henderson for the past two decades and this is what hinders him becoming top player. So I have big skepticism at a thought of Henderson playing in midfield 2.
Emre has shown flashes of brilliance and at times some brainfart moments, I think he will develope to be top drawer as he has all the tools in his locker. Can he be our bender or mascherano in 4231 formation playing alongside a more controlling midfielder? In my opinion I think he has it in him to be just that if not much better. He is a lot more rounded than both mascho and bender, his passing will get better so will his decision making. Penny for ** thoughts
