    Henderson shouldn't be in the team never mind be captain of the club. He isn't good enough.

    Reading the threads I am beginning to think I must have fell asleep or something, Hendo was at fault for 2, Origi at fault for 2, Lovren 2 and Karius 2 more, Milner give away a pen and Lucas had a shocker, not exactly sure what the score was now but it has to be our biggest ever defeat.

    I've never been a fan of Hendo and in all probability never will, however, it was 11 v 11 and they outsmarted us for 20 minutes and put the fear of losing into our entire team and we lost because of that.

    It wasn't Hendo alone v 11 that cost us the game, it was sheer pressure and exploiting our vulnerable back line and gone to sleep midfield. It happens to the best of teams and will happen again.

    Like Klopp said, we were at 100% now we are at 99%, we must just get back up, take the knock and come back stronger.

    I'm waiting to see if the lesson was learned, (we have not won anything yet, stay hungry), as the loss could galvanize us to go on another 12 game no loss run and all on here will be singing a very different tune.

    We lost, yes it was silly, it's past...move on and do't scape goat one player when it was a comedy of errors and anxiety that made them implode.

    Both made after a defeat and aimed at criticizing Henderson. Try harder at trolling.

    Henderson has been doing just fine. I'm not his biggest fan, but he's done quite well.

    He's a player that needs to be part of a well oiled machine that operates at full strength for him to truly contribute. When things aren't going great Henderson is not the player to turn to, and is unlikely to ever be such a player.

    Sometimes these threads are bumped for point scoring. Can he be upgraded? Yes. Has he contributed to our solid start to the season? Yes.

    Stop talking like he's stuck in front of the Cbs and isn't allowed to move. He make simple passes when he's got time but when he doesn't he's the safest player in England. I've never seen a player pass off the ball under pressure more than Henderson.

    he s not pirlo or alonso or modric(who played dm in madrids last game).... we know this.... he s not the most adventurous on the ball...... and yes under pressure in tight areas he can flummox a little, suprisingly not to many teams have gotten to him....... you would expect it to be a tactic, squeeze hendo every time he gets it...


    his engine in this team and particularly his recovery pace against opponents breaks is where his strengths help... he can do things that neither prilo nor alonso could do also.....so i think this deep role suits him.. if he is given space and time he can pass the ball aswell as anyone....

    doesnt mean i wouldnt like to see a midfield 3 of emre behind giuni and adam at some point but right now i dont think hendo is the biggest problem we ve got....... there arent many dms putperforming him in the epl this year... kante maybe but thats about it, maybe fernandinho maybe

    What's wrong with passing the ball when under pressure?

    I'm not saying he's the biggest problem. But all this nonsense of how well he's playing, best mf player this year etc.. Is crazy. He's taken his position well but over exaggerating what he does is way too common here.

    Exactly what a team needs a player afraid to make something happen under pressure.

    I can see all the Cl teams calling right now.

    the biggest problem is hendo is never going to be captain fantastic and pull out a 25 yard pearler when we re 2-1 down 93rd minute ala stevei..

    so as soon as we lose lets bash hendo as captain, he didnt resuce us like stevie used to wah wah wah...
