Jordan Henderson: European Cup Winning Captain of Liverpool

Recommended Posts

Agree he was excellent last night

So where Milner and Gini to be fair. That sort of game suits them. 

 

My only issue is i wish he would take some shots on from range, its the one thing we really lack from the midfield and i notice it most with Hendo. He gets in good spots round the edge of the box but far to often looks for the pass wide when he has the chance of just taking the shot on. Since Gerrard was in his pomp we have only really had Coutinho that would look to take stuff on from 25/30 yards and its needed to stop teams camping too deep

He was okay, this team is leaving him more and more behind in the quality stakes though. He's busy but he's not often in the right place at the right time for my money.

I urge you to watch it back. He was superb last night. I agree with the general point. But there’s no way I’m having ‘he was okay’ against PSG. He was excellent.

We totally dominate PSG for most of the game, and Henderson was one of the reasons.

 

Not his biggest fan, and his lack of goal threat, and willingness and ability to shoot, is pissing me off.

 

But very good performance yesterday, more of the same please, and then add some creativity against weaker teams.

Just mentioned on the mom thread about his major part in Bobbys goal by retrieving the ball from PSG on the edge of the box.

I thought that was Milner.

Is right. I think the praise is a bit over enthusiastic today. We won but for most the match it was 10 v 7 yesterday, even Henderson can't fail to look good in that scenario.

I worry for his long term starting future but to say he was anything other than brilliant last night is madness. He broke up everything. He is usually good in the home games we play but away from home is where I have my doubts about him.

On the evidence of last night I'd have him over Rabiot every time

That’s why you don’t judge on one match. I’d sooner have Sturridge than Cavani, Neymar, and Mbappe on the evidence of last night.

You can see Hendo doesn't have the pace he once had and you often wonder if he is still carrying that heel injury that plagued him for years but he makes our midfield more balanced and does a lot of the less spectacular stuff very well and allows our front players to flourish. He's become our new Lucas Leiva with better technique and fewer silly fouls. Him and Milner can play well together if Wijnaldum or whoever is the third midfielder does a lot of graft to get the ball back and support the strikers. Wijnaldum has done this well himself too.

Note earlier in the thread on his wide distribution is a good one. He played some lovely 20 yard, progressive passes last night — much missing from his typical game. The squad at the moment is an absolute case study in how adding a few quality individuals pushes the whole collective to aim for more.

Maybe Henderson gets a tiny bit more space and time in some European games than he does in dog of war, clogfest domestic fixtures. He certainly seems to excel in them.
