Now that some f**king nerk on twatter sings his praises, all the fickle fucks are back on the bandwagon, and of course, denying they ever said any of the above.
F***ing hell. LOL! What the f**k are you crying and so angry about? You really do act like a fangirl (do you have Hendo posters plastered on your wall with heart shapes drawn on them?). Do you really think people are jumping on the bandwagon because of social media? Have you ever considered maybe, just maybe they have been watching us play?
It is evidently clear how influential Hendo is in his more natural role in comparison to playing deeper because he is playing to his strengths. You don't need to be a genius to see the difference, just like you would know Coutinho is a lesser player on the right , just like you would see Firmino being a lesser player on the left or right oppose to playing as the 9/false 9 or Gomez at right back instead of CB etc etc.
And yeah, he is not as technical as Keita, not as good in tight spaces as Wijnaldum and can't distribute as good as Fabinho, and his strengths are more playing as the secondary midfielder with less emphasis on the ball and more freedom to to work as a boxer which is why he is playing incredible. You need to accept that every player (world class or not) have strengths and weaknesses.
The only thing I disagree with is the captain's armband (which I have seen thrown out a lot) as there is a lot more that goes off the pitch than on it, but I can understand it from their POV as their captains are usually the most assertive/commanding on the pitch (Godin) or the best player on the park (Messi), which imo wasn't Hendo as he had way too many average lackluster games as our 6.
Anyway, you need to let it go and move on. There really isn't any Hendo haters here, otherwise they would not acknowledge how great he has been since changing roles, and I have seen pretty much all the Hendo "haters" praise the f**k out of our captain since moving to his new role and playing monstrous.
The only hater is you, hating on people who don't rate your crush as highly as you do. Stop acting like a fangirl and act more your age, Swab.
