All this hendo talk reminds me of 2 memories:

1 - the most useless player in my high school never passed back to the defence. He would jut smack it forward like an person and then say "it's better to go forward".

2- I went to the New Zealand vs Peru WC qualifier, Peru had all the ball. Anytime New Zealand got the bill, the crowd would cheer and scream at the sight of a white shirt bombing forward. even if it was in isoleion aand with less than zero chance of producing anything.

My thought here is that the narrative seems to have been taken over by the noisiest yobo's who just want to see any sign of attacking play no matter how hopeless it is at the time.

Henderson had a great game yesterday and anybody who can’t at least see that his contribution was at least a positive one really is just a boo boy. The guy is a very good player and has been struggling as much as our other players who went to the world cup. Why aren’t the knives out for Firmino and Mane and only for Salah and Henderson? I have to wonder🤔.

I still believe our biggest reason for not winning the title wasn’t CP game or the slip. It was the red card for Hendo and his ban.

There’s just always fans who want something to complain at and about. The loudest get heard for sure but I would just ignore them.

Yeah but let’s see the Chelsea fans try and come up with a song about Hendo getting two yellow cards.

Henderson is a holding mid and he is expected to play forward! Kroos, Alonso, Pirlo, Fabregas. They all do the same!

You're right Bergenred. That 3 game suspension against Henderson changed everything.

What about the miss placed pass by Toure that let West Brom equalise, thus costing us two points. There were a number of factors why we didn’t win the league.

{Ed002's Note - So it was Toure's fault?}

Oh ye Hendo was immense that season, so direct and I think fans under value his creativity and vision around the box. Re-watching some highlights and Hendo was involved in so much of the attacking play that year.

No Harry, Henderson is NOT expected to pass it forward. if klopp wanted him to do that he would tell him so or replace with someone that can! his job is to break up play, retain possession and spread the play as necessary. The players you mentioned barely broke up the play- they had other players to do that for them. Henderson does both roles.

Yet you wet your knickers over Jorginho Harry who (watch the game again) barely played a forward pass and didn’t play a pass longer than 10 yards against us.
Hendo does play the ball forward when a pass is on but in his position he can’t afford to lose the ball trying Hollywood balls that might work 1 in 10.
Your comments are exactly the kind of mindless bile churned out by people who just have a problem with him no matter what he does.

We agree on lot of things but disagree here with you! Henderson wouldn’t have broken the triple ducker parked by Jose when we lost the title. The red card of Hendo was not the reason! We couldn’t break down Chelsea! Tried all our luck!

Klopp also had the same problem which is why he signed a Defensive minded midfielder, A brilliant ball carrier and chased a playmaker all summer 🙏🙏🙏🙏.
