Why do you assume people think Hendo should be our main creative player when they get frustrated at his lack of creativity or negativity? I never once seen anyone say he should be our main creative player. People are frustrated because, as you alluded to, our 6 isn't quite the pure defensive midfielder (which I agree), and with the time and space he has in games, he should be more positive in possession, whether a pass forward, initiating attacks, drive forward with the ball or even that final ball/key pass (pretty much like all #6's, whether DM or DLPM), but now it's changed? Hendo is now asked to only win the ball, recycle possession, screen the CB's, play well defensively and get the ball wide... pretty much boxing him into a limited pure defensive midfield role, right? However, Fabinho and Wijnaldum for some reason with the same role are more positive/progressive on the ball....
It is not about ignoring or an agenda, quite the opposite If you actually watched Fabinho play. Had you done so, you would know he is better off as the deepest midfielder, therefore, it is only logical one would assume he is here to compete or replace Henderson who happens to play the 6 role. Just like it was logical to think Robertson would compete or replace Moreno, or if Dybala were to be bought, one would assume he would compete or replace Firmino.
The question isn't the skill set (unless Klopp went in blind and just bought him?), Fabinho doesn't have to prove that, it is whether he can settle down in our system and the league, and there is no way better for him to settle by playing games.
Time and time again all these points have been addressed and you keep banging the same drum.
Fact; Fabinho was brought in to replace the outgoing Can.
Fact; Klopp said he can play the 2, 6 and 8 but in your agenda chasing desire to see what you thought was going to happen actually come true, you ignore that.
He'll play more than one position, he'll rotate with our other midfielders, but first he needs to show Klopp he's up to the job, and actually better than Henderson in the role.
So far he has failed to do that despite your insistence after pre-season (and what kind of idiot judges a player on pre-season games) that he would come in straight away and transform the role.
Fabinho has it all to prove, both in training and in matches; it doesn't matter a f**k what he's done before, he needs to prove it all over again to his new employers, and again, so far he has failed.
To say that a player doesn't need to prove himself at a new club is absolute horseshit.
Hopefully he does prove himself, and improves the team, but I've seen far too many players come and go to say with any certainty that it's a given.
