Getting in early here -- I knew playing him at CB would be a mistake.

Makes the decision not to sign a center back seem laughable. Then again, imagine if Henderson actually turns on a match-winning performance?

Man of the match. Made me rethink my understanding of football. Against proper footballers too in Martinez, Thiago and James. He was better than all of them.

He's typically great in games where we don't have the majority of the possession. Gets to run around and put fires out and he does that well. 

 

Agree, that’s the kind of games he normally plays well in. But tonight he was simply very good. I’m normally very critical of him, but he was man of the match this time.

He’s such a strange footballer. Often dominates world class midfield opposition in big European games like this. 

 

More of the same on Sunday, please.

I wonder if the pattern is that when he is the actual leader on the pitch, he delivers but when there is another player who leads by example then he under-performs? Hopefully he can deliver more like this and stop naysayers like me from saying nay.

You could be onto something there. For me, his limitations have always been in his head.

Those types of games favour his style and his intensity and athleticism makes it hard for them. Has to be said, he doesn't shrink against the best either, those criticisms about his mentality I find way off. His problem is when he has to be on the ball a lot because he's just not that good with it. The rest of his game, personality, character, etc.. is pretty much exemplary.

I'm sure it was the same when he played with Steven Gerrard, it's like he was intimidated by being alongside him. When Gerrard was out, he was more boss.

Yeah agree with this. I think his close control lets him down a bit. He can be an excellent passer when he wants to.

He just about holds his own in the safe surroundings of Anfield. He lacks the balls needed when we’re away from home. If it’s between him and Fabinho playing he doesn’t get a look in.  Fabhinos a big improvement on Jordan.

Man of the match against two world class footballers like.

Fuck all strange about it. Bayern were very conservative tonight unless you didn’t notice. He doesn’t really offer much from the position he plays in. He would not have started if big Virg had able to play. Thiago and Rodriguez as good as they are were under orders to sit in. Easy night for sitting in. As usual he  will be like a rabbit in the headlights at the Allianz. He goes missing away from home. Fucks sake everyone knows that.

An authentic Code neg.

 

Cherish that.

Only thing I didn't like was when he gave Trent an earful for not throwing him the ball.

 

Other than that, top game.

Somebody mentioned the balance of the midfield and at the moment Henderson,when fit,offers the best option as the 'steady eddie' in our midfield. I originally saw Fabinho as the straight replacement for Henderson but I think Fabinho is far too versatile to be tied into one position and that has both positive and negative aspects for us. Henderson is weakest from a goalscoring perspective,although does ping in a great pass or two to our front players,but this gives licence to our other midfielders to push on and attack. When all our midfielders are fit Henderson still deserves to be a part of our current midfield because of the lack of balance without him.
