      In a high quality game - he was excellent.

      Only behind Robbo and (at a push) VVD on the night for me.

      Same thoughts here, best of the six midfielders, from both sides, that started last night as well.

      Was he excellent?

      He played virtually the same role as Fernandinho who single handily destroyed our midfield - ok maybe a bit of a over exaggeration.

      Two midfielders who were excellent last night were Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho.

      Yes. He was terrific.

      He was good, no doubt about it in my mind.

      His reading of the game is top notch, then there's his pace, aggression, passing, leadership and organisation, not to mention his stamina.
      He was constantly chatting to his team, geeing them up, pointing where they should be, and having a shout when needed.

      A captains performance.

      Really?

      I thought Fernandinho was better than him to be honest. He did everything Henderson did and more.

      Fernandinho had an excellent game as well, but Henderson and him are in slightly different roles.

      I think of Fernandinho as a springboard, with Henderson more of a steering wheel, in the Volante mould.

      I said in the pre game thread that to win it, we had to have someone sit on Fernandinho, get right up in his face and rush him.
      Milner tried to do it, but he was bypassed too easily, and by the time the subs were made, they were sitting deeper, so it became a moot point.

      Your default Swab “they played slightly different roles” - at your age one would have thought you would act your age have the humility to admit one if not two of the opposition midfielders were better than Henderson.

      Doesn’t make you a lesser Red!

      Blimey, you just can't help being a tit, can you.

      I said Fernandinho was excellent.

      If you can't see they were playing different roles, that's entirely your problem.

      I do love the way you guys can't wait to slag off our captain just because you have a hard on for Fabinho.
      It's not a great look.

      Apart from a couple of the usual plonkers slating Henderson who should be ignored no one has slated Henderson.

      It’s the Henderson was fantastic which would make most posters eyes pop, but eh opinions.

      Following scores for Henderson against City;

      Guardian: 6
      This is anfield: 7
      Liverpool Echo: 7
      Daily Mail: 6
      Mirror: 7

      Seems he was around in the middle compared to our other players according to tabloids, the range was 2-9. One paper gave Lovren a 2. Never seen a 2 before.

      Fernandinho was invisible to me other than his fouling.

      Silva was a nuisance but nothing over the top. I’d have neither of them ahead of Gini.

      Fernandinho for all the hype about his performance, lost the ball more than any other player on the pitch. Read earlier that he lost the ball with 34% of his touches.

      Fernandinho is good at persistent niggling fouls, breaking up play and fitness levels. Is cute enough to avoid yellows somehow.
      Tbh wouldn't mind seeing Hendo leave the foot in more often,  Fab seems to have a bit more of that in his game.

      And yet I didn't say he "was fantastic".
      I said he had a good game, and he did.
      It was even more apparent when watching it back, just how much he stifled city, and how much danger he snuffed out before it got going.

      When playing a top six side, especially City you not only want to see Henderson grab the game by the balls, but he should have his midfield finger up it's arse as well...

      Has Henderson ever given a performance like that...? Not in my recollection

      it shows a non tinted goggles opinion though. On this occasion it seems Henderson was okay, not good and not bad, but you can argue that if you want.

      Nope, it shows that reporters are just as clueless as you are.

      so all neutrals are wrong and hardcore fans are right, in that case in Henderson isn't a 6 or 7 what was he?
      Guardian was the paper that awarded Lovren a 2. They also gave Firmino 8 and Robbo a 7.

      I have a growing suspicion he is actually Phil Neville as the level of football knowledge seems to be very similar.

      Though we did have some midfielders putting in some poor performances.
      But no need to jump up and down about them.
