See Firmino says his dentist helped him launch his career and has been very good to him. That makes so much sense.


1.) 05 Jan 2017 19:05:12
In a culture where large areas are poverty stricken or just on the breadline community servants, and especially highly educated ones like doctors, dentists and school teachers, often become something of a community leader. I don't think Firmino exactly grew up in a favela but it's very possibly that the local dentist was a 'big man' of the neighbourhood and very involved in community projects and affairs.

Thanks hjikle that's actually a great response but I was more referring to the blinding whiteness of his gnashers! 😂.

3.) 05 Jan 2017 20:10:37
Ah humour. Yes. I've heard of this concept.



28 Dec 2016 00:35:40
Was at the game today and must say the atmosphere seemed much better than it has been in the past. Could be that I was in the Anfield Road end instead of my usual Main Stand seat or maybe the doubters are becoming believers? In any case it was good to hear the fans actually supporting the team instead of just slagging them off every time they play a pass that dares to not find it's target. Loved singing merry Christmas Everton! 😂.

It amazes me how fans of other teams (and some of our own fans) don't rate Hendo. Just because someone doesn't skin 5 players and bang it in the top corner doesn't mean he's not integral to the team and the way we play. The lad's a class act if you ask me and a worthy captain.


1.) 20 Dec 2016 23:42:09
I've just read a stat 200 more forward passes for Jordan than the mega money Pogba 😁.

2.) 21 Dec 2016 00:33:33
But he does bang it in the corner doesn't he?

3.) 21 Dec 2016 00:38:36
Its just people being sheep and not being able to think for themselves. Once something is said over and over again people start thinking its the truth. I ask anyone to explain why they think Hendo is rubbish and they spout the same nonsense that oh he passes backwards, he can only do 2 yard passes etc. Then when you prove and show them that this isn't the case, they make up some other nonsense that isn't true. Poor lad can't win.

4.) 21 Dec 2016 01:14:34
First name on the teamsheet for me. The statistics back him up but, like Wijnaldum and Lucas, his contributions aren't spectacular enough for praise. Anyone with half a brain and a vague knowledge of football can see he is the lynchpin of our midfield.

{Ed002's Note - With those criteria it is a suprise that all Liverpool fans can't see it Annie.}

5.) 21 Dec 2016 06:34:10
Mainly because people don't understand his role in the team. For a large portion of people a CM means spraying Hollywood passes across the field 😎. Either you are a Gerrard or nothing.
As long as he breaks up the play and stop the opposition coming to us I am happy. A holding midfielder first task is to hold the line and stop the attack. There aren't too many player who are excellent passer of the ball from deep. I could only think Xabi and Pirlo.
They should check what Busquets does at Barcelona or Rabiot at PSG.

My concern is with Wijnaldum who inspite of given luxury to go forward have not scored more than a goal this season and doesn't influence the game like his position should be doing.

The idea of buying Wijnaldum was to have someone in the middle who makes those runs from midfield to attack and score goals. This is not happening according to me.

That is the reason Klopp is looking at Hector Herrerra ( A B2B player to play alongside Henderson ) .

6.) 21 Dec 2016 06:39:12
Due to his simple style of play fans tend to miss the work he puts in, for a player who just found his feet he realy deserves more.

7.) 21 Dec 2016 06:42:06
Eric Dier or Wictor Wanyama doesn' make those Hollywood passes in fact none other Carrick could actually make a pass from deep.
Once we have our own Dembele to play alongside Henderson people would eventually shut their mouths.

8.) 21 Dec 2016 07:23:34
When you watch Hendo live at the match, week in week out you really can appreciate his value to the team.

That's why fans from other clubs have no idea when it comes to Henderson.

9.) 21 Dec 2016 07:25:51
The work Henderson puts in gets unnoticed. Klopp kept him on as captain and Henderson is proving his worth to wear the armband. Hendo will run through brick after brick wall and still come out at the other end fighting and never gives up.

At this point our midfield ain't going to be the same without him. He dictates play, recovers the ball, makes tackles, creates chances etc etc etc. What more do people want when that is exactly what Klopp expects him to do?

The disgusting tackle by Barkley on Henderson saw Klopp holding his head as a lengthy injury to Henderson will have to see a change in how we play and set up the team which at this point, if it ain't broken then no need to fix it.

10.) 21 Dec 2016 07:28:27
That's very true Nicky D.
He's Klopp's captain and he is very rarely rotated. That says it all for me.

11.) 21 Dec 2016 08:00:01
You can't possibly compare Hendo with Wanyama 🙈.

12.) 21 Dec 2016 08:04:41
People say about how he only passes sideways but if you really take note in a match you'll see that he's always looking to get the ball forward and get an attack going. For me he is outstanding and a terrific well rounded midfielder.
I noticed in the Everton game that Lallana was pointing at Hendo when Klavan had the ball. This sort of thing happened a few times so clearly the players have been told that everything starts with Hendo when we're playing it out from deep. What an underrated player he is.

13.) 21 Dec 2016 08:39:23
I'm more than happy for everyone to continue under-rating Hendo.

Whilst a few of our, and many of other teams fans are bitching and moaning about how rubbish he is, Hendo can just get on with what he's best at - driving our team forward and protecting our defence.

The more he's berated, the less chance there is of a massive offer coming in for him, as I wouldn't want to lose him.

That said, scouts from other teams will likely have the same opinion as me, that Hendo is a rock around which you build a team, so we'd better watch out!

Although I was sceptical at first, £20m is turning out to be a bargain for the lad.

14.) 21 Dec 2016 08:53:19
Most people can't see his value for one of two simple reasons. The first possibility is that the only comparrison they are willing to make is to Gerrard and although he is excellent, he's no Gerrard. The second, and by far more common reason, is they simply don't want to. They either made a stance, or never actually watch Liverpool and judge him on the awful way England play, or don't want any LFC success or any other reason but it boils down to they just don't want Henderson to succeed.

{Ed001's Note - personally I think it is more down to the fact that what he does is not what you see on TV and the pundits don't highlight it. If they highlighted it, he would be suddenly seen as a great player. It was the same last season with Kante, at the start of the season I was banging on about how great he was and people were laughing at me. Then some pundits said it and highlighted it on TV, next thing you know everyone is on about how good he is.}

15.) 21 Dec 2016 08:58:30

He doesn't dictate and that is what pissing people off 😎. That is down to our system. We don't play the usual CM/ DM Combo most of the teams play. In fact we share the midfield into three players. Henderson, Wijnaldum and Lallana.

The lack of goals always meant Klopp will have to play him somewhere else and hence he did not buy a holding mid in the summer. Henderson has done well in his new role.

Liverpool don't play spraying 50 yards pass to full backs rather we play a lot similar to Barcelona of Arsenal. Short pass into the channels and the players themselves moving in between spaces to recieve the ball. One reason Lallana comes handy in this system as he occupies those spaces in between lines.

The only way to dismantle Liverpool is to impose physicality what Everton tried doing all game. because it's impossible to stop the flow of Liverpool passing system.

16.) 21 Dec 2016 09:08:45
Exactly my point Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - if only more people had access to the scouting sites it would help them see the light.}

17.) 21 Dec 2016 09:57:48
And how many Hollywood passes does Kante make lol? Still the best CM in Europe. It's down to the system what players do on the pitch. It's down to the manager what they act on the pitch.
Henderson is not under rated but certainly not worshiped largely due to the victim of 3 managers who played him in three different roles one after another year after the year.
2 good years in his current role will make him a good holding player

Am I happy with his role? No. because I always wanted him to emulate Lampard. 😎.

18.) 21 Dec 2016 10:37:23
I also feel that a lot of players don't get the recognition they deserve because of the lack of success, just look at Mark Noble, he was outstanding for West Ham last season and yet received no recognition and was incredibly overlooked for the England team for the permanently injured and unfit Wilshire. I honestly don't think Kante would have received the hype and recognition if Leicester hadn't have done as well as they did and won the League. Success breeds attention which will then be turned into recognition and praise because clearly you are doing something right if the team have been successful.

19.) 21 Dec 2016 10:43:06
With Hendo the best is yet to come.

As Klopp improves the squad Henderson will get better and better.

It's all down to confidence.

I rate him highly.

20.) 21 Dec 2016 11:12:58
Let's be honest the only time rival fans watch each others teams is when they play each other - and I admit this applies to myself to - so their subjective opinion, based on two games a season, is usually what you're hearing when you hear criticism of Henderson. Even some of our own fans are somewhat blinkered when it comes to Henderson - I've heard a few calling for him to be dropped and/ or sold and heard it enough times for it to not be so surprising. What he is doing, the work for the team, will never make MOTD highlights or be something spectacular enough for pundits to focus on. But it's fine, let them underrate him - he's having a very good season, is quietly going about his work and is having a big impact on the way our team plays - for us it's happy days.

21.) 21 Dec 2016 12:00:17
Ed001 what scouting sites would you recommend looking at? I've realized most sites can't analyse football at all so any recommendations that actually give insights into the game instead of repeating pointless nonsense would be fantastic :)

{Ed001's Note - I mean sites like Wyscout and Scout7 that you can use to look at the data yourself. Not so sure their in-house analysis is of any use. The articles I have read on those sites were of a poor standard, I have to be honest, but you can see all the footage and GPS data from matches on there. You do need a subscription (or be able to log in via a friend's comp who is a scout which is how I used to get to see it) to use the sites though. It would be good if they offered a free-to-use version with more limited datasets or a limit on the number of vids you can watch.}

22.) 21 Dec 2016 12:13:15
he's one of the best players we have. He's so vital to us it's unreal, anybody who doesn't think he is simply haven't got a clue.

23.) 21 Dec 2016 12:48:24
he's our water carrier, and as a certain world and European Championship captain could tell you, there's nothing wrong with that.

24.) 21 Dec 2016 14:06:06
First of all, Pirlo was NEVER a DM. He was a DLP ( in a 4-4-2 diamond) when Carlo Ancelotti (then, at Milan) moved him there as he was unable to play the no.10 position as he lacked the pace and stamina to play there.

Now regarding Hendo, I have given up on people who don`t rate him as they will always make reasons 9however stupid they might be) for slating him without actually watching games for themselves so not point discussing this with such people. If you needhighlights from Sky and MOTD pundits explanations to make a judgement on how good a player is, then I can`t help you.

I love our Hendo EXACTLY the way he is. Capt. of LFC, leads the PL in forward passes, contributed 4 assists towards us being the best attack in the PL, and breaks up play that has helped LFC lead the PL in shots on target conceded, candidate for Goal of the season, courageous, brave and a class act off the pitch (see his post match comments on Barkley`s tackle) .
We need him to be Hendo, the guy Klopp is creating to be THE linchpin for the team offensively and defensively. True professional and an even better gentleman!

25.) 21 Dec 2016 08:15:08
Anybody who watches liverpool consistently will know just how integral he is to the way we play.

The funny part is that a lot of the critics being everton and united fans, 2 teams who have had many similarly not flashy midfielders - carrick, butt, fletcher, gibson, barry etc - and will defend them all to the hilt and tell the world how good they are, but cannot see how henderson is better than every single one of them. Ed025, i dare you to appear and try and name an everton midfielder since the turn of the millenium who has been better than henderson.

{Ed025's Note - this page is not long enough wooly so i will just say all of them, now im not a united fan but how you can say he is better than carrick is laughable mate, he does run a lot though...and then he runs some more..and thats it..

26.) 21 Dec 2016 18:38:15
Once upon a time that may have been the case ed025 but over the last 2 seasons his overall midfield play has improved drastically, his composure, patience, intelligence, breaking up of play and willingness to start attacks mean we wouldn't be half the team we are without him. Running when he needs to is just one part of his game now, something which he doesn't need to do anywhere near as much because the rest of the team is so much better at pressing. Lallana does most of the running in midfield now.

{Ed025's Note - oh right, maybe iv got it wrong then..theres a first time for everything wooly.. :)

27.) 21 Dec 2016 21:42:40
And where did I ever claim Pirlo a DM Hamilton. Your eagerness to prove me wrong lol.



19 Dec 2016 23:09:47
Those saying Hendo shouldn't be our captain just watch his reaction to a horror tackle from Barkley. Class reaction from a class fella.


{Ed025's Note - and what was that reaction pip if you dont mind me asking mate?

1.) 19 Dec 2016 23:32:09
To say he's a good lad and it was mis timed. Rather than what it actually was which was a dirty tackle from an inferior player.

{Ed025's Note - oh right, respect to him for that even though it was a diabolical challenge he should have got a red imo..

2.) 19 Dec 2016 23:36:16
He did not roll around of try to get Barkley sent off and the talk after the game with the press was class. Unlike Koeman crying about the ref.

{Ed025's Note - hes a decent bloke hendo..crap at footy..but a damned nice bloke.. :)

3.) 20 Dec 2016 00:03:54
He's works hard that's good he can pass the ball 50 yards to and has a great shot on him like the goal against Chelsea but being Everton fan you think Barry a great player. Banter.

4.) 20 Dec 2016 00:24:20
Hendo is class, such an underared player. I'm happy for other teams to underestimate him he's better than anything the blue noses have in midfield and proved it tonight.

5.) 20 Dec 2016 02:45:30
Hendo is fit as f@#k.

Barkley could have ended thel ads career with that tacklfor. He should be banned fir 8 games. It bordered on assault.

Although a great second half the first showed us slightly hesitant but we defended better as a group

I thought when llana came back in around the centre circle to recieve the ball he was too slow in putting out to the wing where Klyne had made his run.

In previous posts I've said what an impact player Sturridge could be to frighten tired defenders in the last half hour and he wss unlucky not to score but thank God SUPERMANNE was quickest to react even though Everton set out to batter him all game.

I thought young Origi has had better games and will have again though Sturridge back challenging him in training should perk him up.

I loved Klopps reaction to the goal.
He's a red through and through alright.

Sorry for the long winded post but we are back
If any of us were offered 2nd at Xmas at the start of the season we'd have grabbed it with both hands.

6.) 20 Dec 2016 01:01:26
All the blues around me in the everton end were up in arms at that challenge, they couldn't work out what was wrong with it and it was obviously a referreeing conspiracy against them.

{Ed025's Note - then they are idiots wooly..



15 Dec 2016 00:11:36
Eds what are your thoughts on the yellow kit? It struck me tonight that with the bright yellow it's much easier for the linesman to see if we are fractionally offside so we just won't get away with the close ones.


{Ed001's Note - I think it is more difficult to see, as it hurts the eyes and it distorts due to the brightness. I very much doubt it makes it easier for the linesman, as it will get confused with steward jackets.}

1.) 15 Dec 2016 08:56:28
Fair point I guess, cheers Ed.

{Ed001's Note - I would like us to never use it again personally.}

2.) 15 Dec 2016 09:54:20
It's no worse than Barcelona's tequila sunrise kits, or Chelseas toxic yellow kits. It's meant to be a third kit and as a third kit it does its job - it'll always be a useable, distinct option.

{Ed001's Note - but we have no need of it, the away black kit would have been fine.}

3.) 16 Dec 2016 03:27:41
We actually play in our yellow third kit more than the black second kit.

From what I've seen of him (which isn't much I have to say) he plays a lot like Mane which can't be a bad thing in my eyes. I wouldn't say we particularly need him but he would be a welcome addition and might just give the other lads a pick me up like new signings can do.

Great fella but average footballer. Be sad to see him go for his influence in the dressing room rather than his play on the pitch. Good luck to him I really hope it works out.


{Ed001's Note - that is why he should go, ungrateful people like you can't even just wish him well without a dig.}

Yeah we seem to have lost that spark recently even when Mane was in the team and particularly away from home. We miss Hendo and Matip massively much more than Mane in my opinion. Nothing a win at Old Trafford won't fix though!

MK Firmino's drought has largely coincided with Coutinho's injury and him being played wide as a consequence. He also misses those little passes in behind that Couts gives him as they have a great understanding. I am confident that Firmino will start banging them in as soon as Couts is back.

Benny tattoos don't make you a good supporter. I'll give you an example of how support can take a team to a new level.

Wales in the Euros.

Clearly an inferior squad of players to most others in the competition with a few good players but the rest pretty average. They get beaten by England but their fans celebrate and thank them for their efforts.

England beat Wales but draw against Slovakia and get absolutely hammered by their fans. We all know which team went further in the competition.

We all need to come together as a club and support, good performance or bad and the team will do better I guarantee you. Saying how awful we were and picking out players for poor performances is not helping anyone other than the opposition.

For years we've been blaming players when a lot of time it's us as fans that have to take some responsibility for our lack of quality support. Yes we'll say we're red to the core and get tattoos all over the place but when it comes to it we jump on the first player that misplaces a pass! My point is if we all do this together although we still might not make it we will stand a much better chance.

And in answer to your question Benny I doubt very much that Klopp tore them a new one at all. I think Klopp knows enough about football to know that we could win the league by 1 point so all points are valuable. He will also know that there's no point dragging down team moral for one result when they've just played 2 games in less than 48 hours missing Christmas and new year with their families in the process.
