Good performance from the lads yesterday but it was a scrappy one for me. Without Coutinho and Mane, our midfield seem very average. Hendo is good but he offers very little going forward. Most of his passes are sideways or backward. I am worried about the City game without a fully fit Coutinho and Can. The best player for me for the last few games we've played is without doubt Lallana. For me he is actually the best English player in the EPL. He is outstanding sometimes and as if we are seeing Neymar or Messi playing. If he can produce the same performance against City like last night, then we can dream of a positive result against City.

Were you're eyes shut when Hendo was pinging the ball to both flanks constantly or when he's pass sent origi away for the third goal.

Henderson seems to me to be a confidence player. when the pressure is on, he flaps and often plays quite poorly. When it's easy street he pings 60 yard diagonal passes with perfect precision. He's not a captain who will take on a game when the going gets tough, but nor is he a poor footballer. Just my thoughts. Happy Xmas all!

{Ed001's Note - you mean when the pressure is on and there are no 60 yard diagonal passes on he doesn't play them? *sigh* I give up! People see what they want to see and now they are slagging him off for not being able to magic up an option when there is no one to pass to and even the perfect diagonal passes he played are being used as a stick to hit him with!}

I honestly think people think football is like fifa and expect a forward pass and a goal every 10mims and perfection from every player. I can't belive I'm even reading this about Hendo. He played fantastic last night and if people fail to see that then you don't know how football is ment to be played.

28 Dec 2016 06:28:56
henderson is no messi or iniesta bt the sideways and backwards passing (although clearly not all of the passes are sideways and backwards bt everyone here seems to think so) that not only keeps possession, bt also moves the opposition about can't be a bad thing.

why is no one blaming Barcelona when they do the same thing.

28 Dec 2016 06:48:54
I don't think Henderson was the worst player yesterday and I am not sure what people expect from a defensive midfielder either. We have problems at the back first and foremost.

28 Dec 2016 06:49:53
It was a terrible defeat last night wasn't it. oh hang on, we won 4-1 after going a goal behind. Jeez, there aren't half some whiners on here.

The pressure was on for this game after all other teams around us had already won - perfect response for me.

28 Dec 2016 07:57:44
I am not saying that Hendo is a poor footballer nor the worst player on the pitch but technically speaking he is not that good and very often you feel he could have pass the ball differently and in a better way but he choose sideways pass. Perhaps I am wishing that he could play like Stevie.

{Ed001's Note - technically speaking Hendo is one of the best in the Prem. That is one thing that is not an issue with him at all.}

I think people should watch the Everton match again and you'll appreciate Henderson.
He was a proper leader, kept the team disciplined and people should stop expecting 60 yard passes everytime. And sideways passing are necessary when you're trying to make your opponents lose their defensive shape.

28 Dec 2016 09:08:18
I must be watching a different game than you guys, Henderson was fantastic last night, he controlled the game, stopped most of Stoke threats and was constantly releasing the ball to our attacking players👏.

28 Dec 2016 10:59:55
That was a nice sideways pass from Hendo to Origi for the second goal. I accept people have opinions about football and in particular players but what I do not accept is when there opinion is wrong! 😏.

Stevie G has been and gone. There is no-one that could come in and do what he done on a football pitch.
Henderson is brilliant and if he was out of the team he would be missed.

Captain of our famous club and still haters. come on guys.

28 Dec 2016 11:40:05
That long diagonal pass to the right wing was probably the best pass I have seen this season. it was a pass as his goal against Chelsea. Not too mention he put in some good balls that other players just didn't get on too. He mixes this in with generally trying to keep the team ticking over and this involves sideways or backward passes when there is no other option, attempting to keep possession etc. Some games I wish he'd tackle more, but happy enough to have him in our team. He's been given a job to do and generally does it well.

28 Dec 2016 14:22:02
Henderson is our Kanye but has better vision. I really like hendo does a lot of graft and rarely gives ball away. Great player in my opinion. Got passion for the club.

28 Dec 2016 16:33:25
Don't get why people are still slagging Hendo off, if Stevie G had done that magnificent crossfield pass everyone would be raving about what a special player we have.

28 Dec 2016 16:49:51
There isn't another player in his position in the league that's had half the attacking influence Hendo's had. This is just people who slagged him off last season (when he was injured) desperately trying to justify their opinion.

28 Dec 2016 17:01:42
Frankly, this Hendo issue is becoming boring and tiresome. This is no longer an open debate about opinions on a player. This has degenerated to an outright witch hunt and a farce against the boy as people who can`t stand him use the old, flaky reasons with no basis in fact, to slag him off while conveniently ignoring the great things he brings to this team and is a key figure in our progress this season.

"Side ways and back passing". Utter nonsense. I guess Pep, Iniesta, Xavi, Xabi, Modric and Deschamps where all awful players cos they passed the ball sideways a lot too, right? Yet they conveniently forget his 4 assists this season, being a candidate for goal of the season and him spraying long diagonals and his inch perfect pass to Origi for the third goal, a pass that almost broke Glen Johnson`s back, all vs Stoke. Comparing him to SG is the most cowardly comparison ever, knowing fully well that SG had more ability than him.

Memo to his haters: You hate him. We get it. Now leave us alone with your pathetic witch hunt and let the boy play his game.

Hendos problem is that most of his best work is not going to make MOTD footage and so its hard to see why he is so valuable. But he is technically solid (how many times does he get caught with the ball in possession), a very good passer (invariably hits his man), high work rate, good vision and positional sense. Im not surprised he is captain of a Klopp team and many parents could do worse than use him as a football role model for their kids. I do wish he would learn to pass with his left foot but that is just quibbling and for me he is an essential part of our team.
