A question for Ed's And posters. Is Jordan Henderson world class?

{Ed002's Note - No. There are only a squadful of world class players around the world. If a World Class international side were allowed to be picked for the World Cup - there are 25 players and that would be it. Liverpool supporters with little or no grasp of reality think all of the players are world class.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Henderson no. mane on the other hand.

04 Dec 2019 22:29:20
Vvd Alisson mane are all world class, probably salah bobby Trent and Robbo too.

04 Dec 2019 22:14:56
Can't say fairer than that ed 😂. But no he is not world class. Very good player and great character but not world class.

04 Dec 2019 22:44:30
Mane and Van Dijk are the 2 world class players at Liverpool as they would walk into any team in the world. As good as Henderson is for Liverpool, it is fair to say that he would not make it into a world class midfield.

04 Dec 2019 22:46:39
On ability not even close. Tell you what though, if I had a club I'd want him as my captain!

04 Dec 2019 22:51:03
Top class mate. Who cares about anything else.

04 Dec 2019 23:02:17
It all depends on your definition of ‘world class’. By the Ed’s definition, the 26th best player in the world isn't world class.
Personally, id say any player who consistently shines above and beyond his teammates in a high-level team would be world class but its a subjective term.

{Ed0666's Note - in that case Would you say Tammy Abraham is world class Virgil?

04 Dec 2019 23:13:56
I personally quantify the term 'world class' as being in the top 10 players in your position of the pitch. Therefore, I believe undoubtedly Alisson, VVD, Trent, Robbo, Fabinho and the front 3 are all world class.

04 Dec 2019 23:18:14
Opened up a can of worms here. In my optimism he is an elite level player say what top 300? His passing the last two seasons has actually been world class although he obviously isn’t multi talented his hard work and endeavour i undoubtedly a world class attribute. He wouldn’t be where he is otherwise and I’m really happy to see his hard work pay off. Good shout Brendan.

04 Dec 2019 23:19:12
No, 666, by ‘consistently’ i meant a few seasons rather than a few matches.

{Ed0666's Note - okey dokey Smokey

04 Dec 2019 23:24:02
If Tammy Abraham does what he’s doing for the next 4 years then yes he’s world class. You can’t however, compare Tammy Abraham to Hendo as Hendo has done it it since 2013 whereas Abraham has done it for 3 months.
Not a great comparison there Ed666.

{Ed0666's Note - Virgil said and I quote ‘id say any player who consistently shines above and beyond his teammates in a high-level team would be world class but its a subjective term’ So by Virgils logic that would mean Tammy Abraham no?

04 Dec 2019 23:25:04
77 you are mistaking and fell right into Ed’s trap. That’s why I am such a big ed002 fan. Some people make it way too easy for him/ her.

05 Dec 2019 00:49:10
No he isn’t. Bobby is world class . Vvd Is world class . Mane is ok maybe world class. Allison is supposedly the best keeper in the world but doesn’t do much more than most keepers . But Hendo is nowhere near.

05 Dec 2019 01:07:33
Consistently Ed. Is 3 months consistent? Not in my book.
Balotelli was good for 3 months. I’m not sure when but I’m sure he must’ve been at some point.

{Ed0666's Note - Consistent is subjective mate. My wife thinks more than once is consistent

05 Dec 2019 01:10:09
Alisson doesn’t do more than most keepers? He makes what most keepers have massive problems with look very easy. I suggest you look again and come back with a proper statement.

05 Dec 2019 02:56:47
I say he is. How many teams would he not walk into? 3/ 4 maybe. His work rate, his passing anx his understanding of the game are all world class. When he comes off the bench I breathe a sigh of relief.

It's weird. Everyone says trent vvd and robbo and Alison are world class (I agree BTW) but they haven't kept a clean sheet for god knows how long. Look at trent's intelligence too. Most players would have slotted on lallana tonight (who would have dragged a shot wide on his right foot, probably) but instead he dinks a pass to sadio who slots it home. What a player. definitely World class.

If hendo picks up the league once or twice and maybe a cup or two. He will go down as World class imho.

05 Dec 2019 08:46:45
Trophies should have no bearing on whether a player is world class though, Robbie. Winning cups signifies a great team not a great individual.

05 Dec 2019 09:40:32
Ok let's settle the matter, he's a world class captain.

05 Dec 2019 10:52:27
You can pick a team of so-called world-class players but I'm not sure they'd beat the best teams out there (if you're not allowed any of their players) . "World-Class" is an over-utilized phrase that has little meaning unless you take it to mean that the individual in question would make a difference to every team out there. Henderson would not do that, BUT he makes a fantastic difference to us and how our team performs. I'll take that all day long.

05 Dec 2019 12:55:43
If you feel good for labelling a player world class that's fine but I honestly don't see the point. What matters in the moment is we keep winning games and lift that trophy in front of the world stage.

The team itself have shown incredible discipline winning back to back games and deserve the biggest award in England to recognise what they've put in.

Certainly there are players of ours (your choice here) who affect games more than other teammates but what does the world class tag really add?

Keep believing game by game and sing in the stands; trophies are getting closer and closer!
