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?

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.

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.

Ed002, thank you for the responses.
Just one question - what is Salah’s/ Salah’s agent’s motivation for going to such lengths to boost his profile?
I could be going way off track here, but is it just earning potential or does he have certain aspirations for after he retires, such as some kind of political role in Egypt?
It is rare for sports personalities to become politically involved post-career but not unheard of.
He is fast on his way to becoming one of Liverpool’s all-time great players, and perhaps he is too far into his career to do the same for Real Madrid.

{Ed002's Note - It is all to do with selling the poster boy and getting the player to a higher prifile club.}

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.

{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.

Thanks for the information, Ed.
How close is Keita to being ‘given up on’ so to speak?
I absolutely adore him as a player, but his injury record truly stinks. He is a £60m player trapped inside a sugar glass body.

LoweLFC

{Ed001's Note - it is getting close mate. The one thing that is likely to see him given one more season is purely because it is going to be difficult to recoup anything much for him in the summer.}

I think it’s only recently that Klopp has finally been getting praise as a truly elite manager, not just in terms of motivating but also how tactically superb he is and also how much better he makes players.
In the past, this kind of praise was reserved largely for Guardiola, with words like ‘perfectionist’ being dolled out constantly, whereas Klopp was considered to be a loveable ‘motivator’. A lot of mainstream media publications still ignorantly categorize Liverpool as gegenpressers.
It is, however, finally becoming clear to all that Klopp is the full package, and the absolute best manager in the game.

None of Sterling, Gnabry nor Insigne are anywhere near Sadio Mané, not even in the same league.
The only comparable player over the past 3 seasons has been Eden Hazard, and even he is not on Sadio’s level anymore. Mané is a devastating terrorizer of player and completely irreplaceable.

Hi Ed,
I was too young to see much of Woodgate’s career prior to his Madrid transfer (was only interested in Liverpool and thought Carragher was the best defender ever) .
Only quality alone, would him and Ledley King have been good enough to cut it at elite team level? Perhaps on par with the likes of the starting England CBs at the time?

Ed, happy new year!
Where you stand on VAR’s place in the game overall?
For all the current arguments against it, I simply cannot agree to go back to a game that is adjudged solely by Atkinson, Moss, Taylor et al. Their atrocious performances were ruining the enjoyment for me far more than any wait for VAR.
