Agreed. 

 

Luxury players are people like Pogba and Ozil, Thiago is arguably our most important midfielder. 

 

He was phenomenal last night, as good a performance as I've ever seen from a Liverpool midfielder. 

He was.  He is.

I think we'll definitely need to agree to disagree re Henderson and Thiago.  Let's just talk about Fabinho.  I think we can agree he's getting back to something approaching his best for us - he's looking mobile and energetic again.  

Not really. I think Thiago is a superb player,if available for selection. You just think Henderson is crap despite how he plays.

Wrong.  I thought Henderson was good in the first half yesterday, but dropped his level in the second half.

I don't want to take all the credit because its Thiago that went out and done it but since I called him out on needless risky passing and reckless tackling he's cut it right out.

He went to ground stretched out to make a block and took a couple minutes to shake that off.

Apparently he didn't complete only 5 of his passes. 

 

One is shown at @2:06 of that compilation posted above. Not sure if that was the last one.

He was boss in the run in last season. He's just turned in two masterful performances as the season starts to wind up and looks really, really keyed in.

 

He's a man for the big moment. If we keep him fit, we can win the lot.

Thought the boy was phenomenal last night, he was at the centre of everything. It's really hard to pick the best player out of that performance as everyone was excellent but I think he shaded it.

 

Was really concerned when he seemed to fall on his arse stretching for a ball late in the 2nd half then started signalling to the bench he wanted to come off. I know Jurgen has said it was because of his ripped shorts(?) and hope he just had a numb bum and nothing more serious.

didn't he also do a mad diving header/block towards the end or was I just tripping by then

Yeah. He first passed it and that got blocked up in the air and then he headed it as a pass instead. That blocked pass was counted as one of his 5, yes five misplaced passes in the game.

Damned with faint praise.

Seriously, what do you expect?  Henderson gets judged far more leniently than most for his on field activity by almost everyone on here.  Watch the game again, and tell me how you could legitimately disagree with what I've said there.   Compare and contrast with Thiago, who let's not forget, does everything that Henderson is supposed to do, as well as the stuff that you regard as non-essential.

For what it's worth mate I don't even think Henderson had a 'good' first half. He was ok but every other one of our players was on another level. 

 

Best thing I can remember him doing all game was staring rat boy out.

Load of nonsense but not surprise what you repeatedly spout about Henderson. Jurgen must be severely short sighted not to agree with you, eh?

Absolutely bizarre, he was very impressive in the first half and Klopp wouldnt have kept him on if everyone else was on another level. Flagged a bit in the 2nd but nowhere near as bad as his constatnt detractors make out.

did you read what I said about his performance, or are you just assuming I said he was bad?
