Regarding last night's game -
I don't think I've been as happy to see a player score this season as much as Henderson yesterday. He was absolutely superb last night and you could just see pure, unadulterated joy from every fibre of his being when he celebrated.
I haven't been his biggest fan over the years, largely due to not fully understanding exactly what he does for the team, but there is no question he changed the game last night.
A question for Ed - Henderson looked great making runs into the box, and his timing was excellent - has he ever been considered for this role regularly?

{Ed001's Note - it was his role until injury problems mate.}

Top class cm. One of the best around. I would say the most underrated too.

Big shout to klopp for starting keita and his tactics down the left.

Couldnt watch the game. Too much pressure but i kept checking in.

Robbiesline you got to watch it mate it’s part of the ride you’ll back after and think why did I miss that 👍🏻.

In the 14/ 15 season when Hendo was first made captain he played a very attacking box to box midfield role and was superb. 7 goals and 15 assists that season. His vision for a pass is superb and his runs off the ball are fantastic. Klopp mainly converted him to a deeper role because of injuries, and partially because nobody else in the squad was anywhere near his tactical level of understanding.

for me, Hendo is one of Top 10 CMs in the PL (and no, it isn't red tinted glasses Ed025). His injuries no doubt has costs him his pace, durability, endurance, but last night of a reminder of what he brings to the team when unleashed.

Fabinho is a better DM than him no doubt, but in the 2-3 years Hendo had played in that role, he has been very good.

I just hope that when claims the PL and CL this season (fingers crossed! ), he'll be given the due recognition as a captain and player.

Top 5 cms in prem for me.

And i know longthing. But if we play at night i can never get to sleep afterwards. My body aches as i am literally clenched for 90 mins. i've been through the heart break too many times dude. Last season's final.
That chelsea game. I have never felt so empty after watching a game. I cried after thr ucl final last year but losing tp chelsea left me with a stone in my chest.

But winning the biggun in 2005 balances it out. And the treble season, i was walking on air.


7.) 06 Apr 2019 11:27:33
The way he set his body up to shoot it was never going to miss. Those easy chances though do get missed sometimes usually by players who have started celebrating in their heads before touching the ball. Hendo is reliable and professional. Was always going to score. I also liked the way he was pointing to where he wanted the ball when Firmino looked up.


8.) 06 Apr 2019 12:36:52
Robbieline--I completely agree. I kept flicking between channels and checking the score as I just couldn't take it! But then, as Longthing76 said, I regretted not watching it all the way through. Its part of the ride. I am going to try and watch it all now.

Unless that was the reason we won? Maybe I should keep doing it. this season is messing me up!


9.) 06 Apr 2019 13:25:38
Spot on, MK. People (somne conveniently) forget what a force Hendo was as a CAM in the 13/ 14 and 14/ 15 seasons. He was such a force in both seasons that City were VERY keen on him till he singed his big contract. In fact, I remember a game vs City in the 14/ 15 season at Anfield where he scored a scorcher (Cou got the second in a 2-1 win) and he (and Joe Allen) bossed Yaya Toure and Fernandinho off the pitch that Sunday afternoon.

It is his injuries and change of position (something he did for the team to the detriment of his own game) that has slowed him down which is why he is not as effective as he can be at times. Last night, he was unleashed and people may just see the goal BUT what people did not see prolly, is his awareness.

Notice that he was the ONLY player on the pitch backing up the play when Bobbie chased a lost cause. He recognized the situation and knew that Bobbie could only play the ball across into that space hence broke his neck to get there. It's called game intelligence/ awareness, something his embarrassing detractors know very little about.

You're right, them saying "its now or never" is not strictly a threat, but to a player who they know is keen, it is a cynical attempt to have him pressurise his current club.
Regardless of 'Barca's plan', I am sure it was not in Liverpool's plan to sell him, and nor do they have to, so make Barcelona wait.

Iniesta is good to go another year, and will likely do so. They can wait, rather than using these threat tactics.

LoweLFC

{Ed002's Note - That is not the plan and there are no "threat tactics" - it is embarrassing seeming these posts.}

I agree. Eventually I'd like to see Milner go but this season is not the time.

YNWA82 - why would you want those days back? Transfer speculation can be tiring but it keeps people interested throughout largely uneventful summers in terms of football.

did our failure to sign Sanchez have anything to do with the player preferring to play for Arsene Wenger over Brendan Rodgers?

Ed, to draw on TG’s point about us being different in 2019, from your perspective what are the main differences between the way Klopp and Rodgers have handled their respective title run-ins?
It sounds obvious but I’m sure there is stuff we could learn.

LoweLFC

{Ed001's Note - the main difference is that Klopp has experience in this position so the players respect him. Oh and he is not claiming every good thing is down to him, while every mistake is down to the players. Klopp brings the whole group together as a team with everybody else being given credit, rather than trying to swallow up all the glory for himself. That makes a huge difference at times as players like that he is loyal and play for him that tiny bit harder than they would if they do not feel like he will back them on their bad days. Rodgers felt like he had to prove himself constantly, he was constantly pointing to everything saying "I did this" when it was something good. Klopp does not have that issue, so when something goes well he says "they did that" and the players gain in confidence.

It reminds me of a scene in (I think) Coach Carter, where Samuel L. Jackson (a Liverpool fan) tries to get that out of his players. Rodgers could do with learning that lesson, that he does not need to take the credit for good things, as the glory is a shared glory anyway. If the team wins, he wins. He does not need to keep pointing to everything and saying "I did that". In my opinion he is insecure in his ability as a manager, which is why he constantly keeps telling everyone he is a great manager. If you believe you are something, then you don't feel the need to tell everyone all the time. That insecurity will eventually transmit to the players, particularly at times of pressure and stress, such as title run-ins.}

Ed, I agree Leicester have a quality, quality side, but is it really top 6? To the extent that it’s better than some of the current top 6 teams?

LoweLFC

{Ed001's Note - yes, definitely. If all the players give their all they are defo top 6 level. They have bought well and have a good balanced side with some real top class players such as Maddison and a goalscorer to lead the line as well. Added to that they have a strong bench as well. They should never have dropped out of the top 6 after winning the league but it went to the players' heads.}

Tbh Robbie, I’d still have Sterling there. He’s improved as a player, but he still can’t kick a ball properly, and hugely benefits from the system he is in rather than making the system better.
I hear some journalists calling him the best player in the Premier League, which is the most outrageous statement I have heard since about 2011 when the media were also calling Jack Wilshere ‘world class’.

Can’t argue with any of this Ed, it just confirms what we already knew that most of the media don’t have a clue about football.
I’d suggest a few English players should be there, however.

LoweLFC

{Ed001's Note - there were a lot I considered from England, but decided to limit it to just the one who least deserved the ridiculous amount of praise heaped on them over the summer. I really do not get the hype around Trippier at all. He can't defend and is not particularly good going forward either.}
