A thread for all things Jordan Henderson.
A thread for all things Jordan Henderson.
didn;t half miss him yesterday by all accounts
Like i said in the other thread the break to key players could benefit us.I just rewatched the game and i can't see Henderson making a difference at all, he has been putting similar average performances together recently and would have been just as tired and exhausted as the rest of our players. Even Milner looked shattered against Sunderland. One thing that i thought rewatching it though is that these injuries to Coutinho, Matip and Henderson could be a blessing in disguise. Henderson hasn't been at the level he was earlier in the season for the last month so this forced break on 3 key players could mean they help us finish the season stronger by being fresher.
A break for Henderson may be just what he needs to freshen up.
I hope Mane feels like he is having a holiday during the AFCON.
I think we missed him in terms of the familiarity of the system, due to him being an ever present, but I don't think he would've made too much of a difference. He's never been one to step up and be the difference maker when the rest of the team is playing ****, ie. Burnley, Swansea 1st half, Bournemouth 2nd half
It will be difficult, but United will not sit this time and we can do them on the break. We just need to be calm, it will be as nervy as the EL away tie.
We'll beat Swansea afterwards. Let's hope Spurs don't bottle it as they usually do against Chelsea.
I hope people realise the importance of Henderson yesterday.
But people will pretend they don't and continue to be blind at what he's so good at.
On current form he's blatantly a superior player to Can at the moment, better on the ball, quicker to release it, positioning is better with and without the ball etc.
No brainer Henderson plays when fit again, Can really at present is no better than last season really though a run of games may help
Important player and we will miss him against Utd if he's not back.
Who is better than Hendo in his position in the league? Probably just Kante?
How anybody who has watched LFC play this season choose him as the weakest link and keep repeating such a mantra so many times without a shred of evidence that he is a weak component. Its just bizarre. Its not about loving Hendo, its just about some perspective. The three posters I question in particular are either WUMs or more likely challenged in someway.
There are some posters who are critical of Hendo, but there is some balance.
Is it reasonable to be critical of a central character when we sit second at the half way stage and have a good chance of reaching the final of the League Cup? Surely not!
People criticizing Can and comparing him negatively to Henderson in that position this season would do well to remember how woeful (yes woeful) Henderson was in his first few games there.
Big up Henderson if you want to cause he's been good, but no need to compare Can's one game there, to Henderson's season there.
And as for yesterday, I don't think Henderson would've made much of a difference, cause I'm one of those who thinks he goes missing when we're under the cosh (ala Burnley, Bournemouth, Arsenal at 1-4).
Also the only reason people were comparing is people like DOK have went on all season about Can saying "as soon as he gets a chance in DM Henderson won't get back in".
Hmm who will play next to Henderson next season to make our midfield great again for me he is good enough.
Henderson + possibly a new signing and Cou , Firmino, Lallana and Mane ahead . If we have a very good midfielder next to him Henderson can also make runs forward when required.
More than 100 pages in the last one sees us needing a 2nd Jordan Henderson thread!!!
I still expect his detractors to give Hendo no credit whatsoever for being an excellent discussion generator despite the existence of This 'The Jordan Henderson Debate MK2'
Arguments I now expect to see are,
'Henderson is simply not good enough for a 2nd thread'
'Henderson wasn't attacked enough in the last thread'
'Can deserves far more pages than Henderson is getting'
