Reality obviously isn't something you have more than a passing acquaintance with.
We lost Can, we lost Coutinho.
The new players fill those gaps, especially with the addition of Shaqiri who can play a number of attacking roles.
This is you going mental and ranting on about how Shaqiri can't play a "10" role all over again.
Perhaps you should read the article in the "Improving Midfield" thread.
Or maybe not.
It's obvious you know more than Dalglish, Rogers and Klopp combined
Ok, to be honest I can't be arsed having a debate over whether henderson is a great player or not. You have your opinion, I have mine.
What I will say though is I repeatedly said on this forum that I don't want either Henderson or Lovren in our starting line up whenever possible. Neither are good enough. Neither played on Sunday and we smashed West Ham who many people tip for a European place this season. We're top of the league and it's possibly the best I've seen us play under klopp in terms of controlling a game. It was perfect. Defence were brilliant, midfield was brilliant. There were no liabilities. No weaknesses.
We've always been a great attacking side under jurgen but there was always the possibility we could let the other team back into the game. It happened plenty of times. But something was different about sunday. It's very early days so I'm not getting carried away just yet but it was a champions like performance. I couldn't fault it and i ALWAYS look for improvement and I always state what we did right and what we did wrong.
I noticed the huge difference in having keita in our midfield and it was just a breath of fresh air for me. I've been crying out for this player for years. He was a joy to watch and the difference in standard to what we've seen in recent years was there to see. Hopefully Fabinho can be of that standard too and if he is then we have a real team on our books.
I didn't notice it at the time, but I've seen a video of it since, where Henderson came onto the pitch and shaqiri is in possession. Henderson is shouting at him and pointing to play the ball back to Alisson. Instead, Shaqiri turns and plays a simple ball FORWARD. I couldn't help but laugh. It was just typical of Henderson.
He has his part to play this season Henderson, a very big part actually and at times we will need him. We will have tons of difficult games where we might be a bit tired and I couldn't think of anyone better to inject some energy into the side. But he shouldn't be in the starting 11.
Anyway. A great performance on Sunday, same line up on monday please Jürgen.
