Jordan Henderson: European Cup Winning Captain of Liverpool

Recommended Posts

It's a close call, with a few worthy candidates.

 

But at the end of the day I am willing to cut your testicles off, Dennis.

Of our first choice 11 (whatever that is!), there really aren't that many leaders.

Skrtel is an option, but with Henderson being vice captain last season, there really was no way he wasn't going to get promoted.

 

I've seen in enough in Emre Can to believe he's a future captain of ours. When he plays in the middle, you can see him demanding the ball, dictating the play, and telling fellas what to do. Plus he has incredible hair.

What the fuck's a discus got to do with it anyway, Dennis ?

It is what it is, Henderson is now the captain.  You can get your big titty lip on and throw the toys out of the pram, or you can at least give the guy a chance and get behind him.

Or you can just be a total cunt.

Doesn't deserve it but it's done now. 

He's a bit of a wuss and I'm not surprised Rodgers gave it to him because he admires meek men who genuflect as he passes, afraid to ask him the time of day lest it be deemed subordinate.

 

Had very high hopes for Hendo last year but he hid behind a picture of peppa pig. Maybe over this summer he'll have grown pubes and his balls dropped so will turn out as a man against Stoke first game. 

 

We're fucked.

There are no natural leaders in the squad so I assume he is the best that we have at the moment. Maybe now Gerrard has gone he will step up and be more assertive.

 

I do like the way he always chips away at the referee, always nagging and complaining to them during the game

 

Also he is immaculately groomed. Nivea will be happy with the appointment

I think he has the personal qualities to make a great captain. He is dedicated, professional, humble, stands up for his team mates and is dignified.

 

I just worry about his ability to play football to the level we need.

 

Oh well, it's done now. Best of luck Jordan.

It's a lot to ask of him I think, especially while he is still developing as a footballer. That said, it may bring the best out of him. A lot will depend on the team's form, if we are struggling his captaincy will come under the spotlight and the pressure on him will be significant.

I think he's probably the best candidate right now. Doesnt miss many games through suspensions or injury, been here a few years etc. Whether he's a natural leader or inspirer when the chips are down, time will tell.

I think he has a tendency to disappear when things are going badly and I'd prefer he wasn't captain. It speaks volumes about the recruitment policy over the last 5 years that we have a team so lacking in leaders.

I like Henderson, but picking a captain from our first team squad must have been like a game of Guess Who?

 

They need to be almost guaranteed to start - * flicks down five faces *

They need to have been here for more than a season - * flicks down four faces *

They need to not be injured all the time - * flicks down two faces *

They need to be on a long term contract - * flicks down one face *

 

You are... Jordan Henderson.

It should have been Skrtel, but I can't say I give too much of a fuck. What's he got to do? Call heads or tails and shout at people a bit. 

 

Part of why I'd hoped it wasn't Henderson or Milner that got the role is that I don't think either deserve to be guaranteed of a starting place.

I'm so tired of all the negativity around the club at the minute, some of it is obviously justified but people can't wait to see the worst in everything.

 

We've not much experience in the team and not many suitable players who will be guaranteed first teamers right now.

 

Is Henderson good enough? Long term probably not, certainly not in comparison to probably the greatest player we ever had who captained us, but he's got the role so people need to accept it and get behind it.

 

His attitude, professionalism and loyalty to the club are spot on. You could make a case for Skrtel but whoever followed Gerrard was always going to have massive boots to fill. Henderson has worked bloody hard, it's a great chance for him.

6 goals, 9 assists last season which is good numbers. Likes a bit of aggro too even if he can't back it up!

 

He'll do alright I reckon

I reckon he'll take it up another level in Gerrards absence. On reflection i think it's the best appointment that could of been made. Skrtel is a leader anyway and always has been without being the captain. Henderson seemed to grow every time Gerrard wasn't on the pitch and played a lot more Gerrard-esque passes and ran the show from midfield in his absence. 

 

He's also got the right character and work ethic for the role, a good role model for the British core we have here.

Purely to sell shirts. Would have preferred Skrtel.

 

The missus, overhearing a conversation on the subject: "Why can't they have told everybody that whoever wants the armband has 5 games to show they deserve it? In the meantime, they could make the goalkeeper the captain."

 

Silence.

    • Far more realistic reaction to that news. 
    • Jurgen Klopp has given hope to the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana as the club braces itself for a heavy schedule of games in the next month.

      With the return of the Champions League as well as the League Cup, squad rotation will be required so that players stay fresh.

      Speaking ahead of the fixture against Arsenal on Saturday evening, Klopp said those on the periphery will get their chance.

      Liverpool Echo reported Klopp as saying:

      “Every year is the same and always in the same moment at the beginning of the season.

      “You want to have that, and if you don't have it then you have injuries from pre-season and that's the last thing you want.

      “ Still, I would say in this moment, Shaq didn't play enough, he is in a really good shape. 

      “Adam didn't play enough, in a really good shape. Dejan didn't play enough, in a really good shape.

      “These are completely normal things. Some others might also say that they don't play enough.

      “But we have to prepare for a season. 

      “At the start of the season without intensity, you try to get rhythm, you try to get stability at the beginning. It's not a moment where you change too many things.

      “Then it will happen automatically and in the next (few) weeks you have to (change things) and everything will be fine then.  

      Klopp said he was happy to give his stars a couple of days off during the week after a busier than normal workload to start the season which has included the Community Shield and the Super Cup.

      “ I was really happy for the boys to give them the two days off. 

      “We didn't plan it, but it's easier when you win so we didn't tell them beforehand.

      “Somebody needs to remind me that it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a day off!

      “I had Sunday off, Monday I was working. Sunday I watched football, the Chelsea v Leicester game. That was nice.”

      Klopp is not putting too much emphasis on a clash against a top six opponent as he rightly says that every game is important if you want to have ultimate success come the end of the season.

      “I had a couple of years ago a really good record in the mini-league then didn't pick up enough points in the other games.

      “Then last year the record was not bad but was obviously for people not good enough because we drew a lot.

      “ We have to get as many points as possible and we cannot decide where we get them. 

      “We're Liverpool and every week we have to try to win, and that's what we will do.

      “I don't think this result on Saturday will be the decisive result of the season.”

    • Considering they were playing in Warsaw I'd assumed it was something more broadly anti-Catholic.  Pathetic really.
    • I think it's pretty clear they've issued that because as long as we're still actually under contract with New Balance it would be in extremely poor taste to issue a statement saying we're planning to switch a year from now.   Sort of colours the relationship with New Balance, and we still have a whole year to go (minimum) in that relationship. I expect it's sorted behind closed doors, but won't be made public until some respectable time, probably in the spring some time when the NB deal is about to expire.
