      I do believe that if the armband was given to Mignolet, Karius or Ward we would keep a clean sheet in every game.

      Henderson is f**king captain! It does not give him a divine right to start. If he deserves to play he will. If not, someone else can wear the armband on the day.

      In my opinion, he is good enough to play.

      I know it's not up to us but the poll at the top speaks volumes.

      50/50 at the minute for and against surely means he shouldn't be the captain.

      Imagine Gerrard or Suarez or Carragher was the name up there. The results would probably be 80/20 or more in favour of yes

      I agree with you, but when was the last time you saw a club, any club, bench their captain, in his prime?

      It seems to me like if a player is captain, he's essentially the first name of the team sheet, whether he deserves it or not.  The last time I can think of a captain being dropped was when the Mancs dropped Rooney, but again, he was old and past it.

      Of course we should have a different captain.  I mean really, if Henderson weren't captain now, would anyone give it to him?  would anyone even have him in the starting XI?  I doubt it.

      This, unfortunately, is another consequence of FSG waiting too long to sack Rodgers.  Does anyone remember the last game of the 14/15 season, when we got destroyed by Stoke away, we lost 6-0 or something?  Everyone knew he should've been sacked long before that, but that really should've been the last straw.  Klopp was already available, he'd already had his press conference saying he was leaving Dortmund etc. 

      Well, Henderson was named captain in July.  By Rodgers.  So, if FSG had sacked Rodgers at the end of the season in May, like everyone and their mother knew they should've done, then Klopp could've come in, had a full summer of transfers and working with the squad, and made his own decision on captain.  No way in hell he would've picked Henderson. 

      But of course he didn't come in until October, and Henderson was already captain.  An awful decision made by an awful manager.  And yet now Klopp is stuck with it.

      I honestly think that we're stuck with Henderson as captain for the next 3-4 seasons at least.  He is absolutely useless as a footballer, much less as a captain, but I don't think Klopp has the bollocks to take the captaincy off of him.  Thanks, Brendan.  We're still suffering from the awful decisions he took. 

      If it were my choice I'd give it to Mane.  He's shown an incredible amount of passion for the club in the short time he's been here, he fights, he works hard, he doesn't go missing.  And he's arguably the first name on the team sheet, so no one would question whether he is just being put on the field because he's captain.

      But I doubt it'll happen.

       :lmao:

      You're blaming Rodgers because Klopp doesn't have the 'balls' to hand the armband to somebody else. I've read it all now.

      There were many things wrong with Rodgers but blaming him because Henderson is our current captain is just pitiful.

      I know you're not English so maybe it's a matter of textual comprehension? English isnt my first language either so I understand it can be tough at times. However if you read my post and understood that I called all English people ridiculous, then you seriously need help.

      I said England's obsession with armbands and the captain role is ridiculous and I stand by it. Completely different to what you're trying to portray.

      But then again me and you both know it was just so you could have another dig at Brazil. You can go f**k yourself you tw*t. And dont come to me with "but I lived in Brazil" as if that excused you for being a c**t. F**k off.

      LOL you are a bit sensitive huh Diego? Maybe you should learn to take as well as you give because you seem to have no problem in dishing out abuse, calling people ridiculous and lots of other abusive terms.
      Perhaps if Brasil believed a bit more in good captains then the rather humiliating defeat against Germany on home soil would have been a bit different? ;-) Just something for you to ponder.

      Nah not sensitive if you direct abuse towards me, but you've been a c**t on more than one occasion towards my country, including a very ignorant and prejudicial view on poor people from favelas which is the sort of thing only a real tw*t like yourself could say. This is particularly unnecessary given it wasn't even part of the conversation to begin with. But then again you're not very good on textual comprehension - and here's me thinking that up there in half-half scarf land you were supposed to have a good educational system. 

      Funny that you'd say that about the Brazilian national team given they don't care much about captains and still are the most successful NT in the world. Real Madrid don't bother appointing captains either and are the most successful club in the world. England are totally obsessed with it and well... they're England.

      Hmm you really do have some kind of issue with England and the English don't you, it's starting to shine through more and more now, interesting, very interesting.
      For what its worth I was winding you up a little bit but boy oh boy I didn't expect this kind of reaction and such vulgarities, tut tut.
      Also just to note that I do like MOST Brazilian people I've met and you come from a fantastic country.

      Anyway sorry if I cased you offence, I genuinely didn't mean to do that.

      I fully agree, there is no one in the current set up who has shown any ability or desire to have the arm band.

      Courtinho was our talisman - but his head was turned and it now seems like were on borrowed time before we sell him and get a inferior replacement.

      I'm more worried about the lack of improvement from the defence and midfield as well as a striker who will fit in and also bang in 20+ goals to worry about whos captain out of the current bunch

      Stop whinging over Hendo. Being captain does not guarantee a start. At the minute he really is the only choice. He's captain of England. His form will be assessed by Klopp on the same level as everybody else. Not saying I don't have concerns over his form and his style but I could list half a dozen at least who need to improve.

      Only choice? Milner would have something to say about that after the other night.
      Milner was outstanding, Henderson is not good enough even in his peak, Milner's ability to lead by example is miles ahead.
      What was the score? 7-0? Highest every away win from an English team? Who was captain? Oh yea.. Milner!
      Where was Henderson? Twiddling thumbs on the bench, at least he was not giving the ball away like usual.

      There is nobody thats the problem. Hendo is best of a bad bunch. Quietest team ive ever seen. Goalkeepers you never hear a peep out. Never bollock the back 4. Has Matip ever spoken at all? Lovern does all his talking in ghe media.

      We have no leaders. Which is why we linger between 4th and 8th in the league on a regular.

      Henderson far from ideal but better then the rest.
