      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.

       :lmao:

      Point proven.

      On current form yes and also means there is no mad rush to get Chamberlain back in the side.

      Klopp's rotation will mean players in midfield being on the bench now and again, no matter how well they are playing.

      For example, his comments about Firmino given what amounted to a forced rest.
      The monitoring is so good these days, that Klopp can make a scientific decision on who to rest.

      Personally, I see AOC and Keita, and perhaps even Shaqiri as being able to play the same position, with Henderson, Fabinho, Milner and Wijnaldum able to play the deeper roles (yes, I'm saying that as an 8 Henderson or whoever is deeper than AOC, Keita Shaqiri)

      The so called 8 is an interesting role under Klopp, because he plays it 2 ways, and much as I don't want to do a BR "invert the triangle", it seems to me that's exactly what he does, although other formations are also used.

      Would like to get into this more, but I have to shoot off.
      Might pick it up later.

      Don’t really want to go on about Hendo as it’s been done to death but at this level he just isn’t good enough.

      Offered zilch going forward or defensively.

      That’s not entirely true. He picked out a few nice passes, but once again he was relegated to a role that’s not his best. When he came on he should have been pushed to the front of midfield and Gini been used in a more defensive role.

      Top performance today from Hendo even at the end with some cramping up he was the one leading by example still closing down players and providing support and encouragement.

      I really enjoyed the interview on the half-way line after the game. All of his teammates, the manager and coaches in unison in front of the Kop and then there's Hendo, the Skipper doing his interview with class, making reference to the great scenes in front of him and showing pride in his team-mates. He could have short-changed the interview and legged it over there but it was a real Captain's response for me, bit of a coming of age. There has never really been mush faith in Jordan as the Skipper, same applies to Milner when he has the arm-band but both players have really come of age this season, making impact on the field with their performances and on their team-mates with their maturity, composure and passion for the shirt. Made up for both of them.

      Boy this team has matured beyond belief. I am so proud of Hendo who isn't the most skilful player ever to put on a red shirt but this lad gives everything as do all his team mates. We have since our best days had many false dawns and put out teams that simply didn't have the right fight in them but not this lot.
      The first signing Shankly made that made a difference was big Ron Yeats and Tommy Lawrence was a sweeper keeper 50 years before anyone else thought of it now we have Big AL and Big Virgil see its not rocket science after all.
      But Hendo covered every single blade of grass last night he covered his wing backs and his CB's and got forward and created the first goal it was a Captains Performance.

      hopefully next season will be a 60 game season we need all these players and what a bonus to see how ALL of them improve under Jürgen
