      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.

      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.

      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

      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.

      Personally I couldn't care less what the 'tabloid' gave as ratings.

      Ditto and the Guardian is, ironically, pretty conservative in their ratings in my experience.

      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.

      Yeah, so. I checked a few tabloids. I think 6-7 is fair though.

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

      Fucks sake, you'll be quoting Phil Neville next.

      Yep and the Lovren 2 in whatever paper that was just highlights that.

      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.

      F**kin midfield was sh*te last night, and Hendo was the worst of them.

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

      Gave Salah the MOTM today but on reflection it was this guy. He was certainly our best player defensively, covering a lot of ground to make up for misplaced passes and sloppy play elsewhere.

      In a crazy game of football he seemed like the only one who stuck to his job and marshalled his area of the pitch.

      Good game today. We'll need to some more captains performances before the season's out. Showed character.

      Think quite a few people did, mate. It was a great performance in a very chaotic game. Very unlike us seeing how the rest of the season has been so far. We've become so good at controlling games. Today was the complete opposite of what we have been all about all season.

      Gave him my MOTM too. Great performance and as FMS says, he at least tried to control the middle, recycle possession and keep things together while the rest were all over the place.

      Their silence says they did  :)

      There was the odd nutter saying he had a poor first half, but as you say, the silence says a lot.

      Really good game from the captain.

      And some clowns were asking for him to be subbed off early in the second half.

      Hendo along with Fab played really well as a partnership although not sure which one of them should have been offering better protection to Jimmy knowing he was up against Zaha.

      I think it should have been Hendo as he was mainly on the right? Usually it is Wijnaldum covering TAA when he is on the right in a double 6.

      Anyway, I only just noticed this when watching MOTD (2nd time I seen the goal), but I thought it was a huge mistake by Hendo for the first goal, but overall, I thought he, along with Fabinho were our best players, though I still think Wijnaldum and Fabinho is our best partnership!
