      :
      Bad choice of words mate. I meant the self belief in as driving with the ball more which will hopefully bring more shots and goals, especially if playing further up field as HScRed has just mentioned.

      Anyway, I can feel a very good playing year for our captain on the way and for the team  :soccer_h4h:

      Fair enough mate, but I don't think we'll be seeing a glut of shots and goals from him, simply because our deeper midfield are support players for the attackers and full backs.
      If he keeps on providing a solid base, and gets forward where possible when played in the nominal 8 position, that'll do for me.

      Get what you're saying Swab, but just feel that he could keep hold/drive/or take players on a little bit more than just playing the easy pass, but as you say, if he carries on as he is, it's all good.

      I'd say to watch his highlights clips mate.
      It's a bit of a myth that he always picks the safe or easy pass.
      As a fulcrum, and according to Klopp's philosophy, the deeper role is about keeping possession, recycling the ball, dropping a bit deeper when we re-set, and also trying to get opponents to come out when they are parking the bus to open up space further up.

      When he moved further up, after Fabinho settled, we saw much more dynamic play from him; quick passes in and around the box, bringing the FB's into play, runs in behind, shots, crosses (something people severely underrate), and forward defensive play.

      Let's not forget that it is often easier and better to get past opponents with quick, short passing, movement and creating overloads, which again he showed when he moved further up.

      I suspect his roles will be mixed again this season as other players (and Henderson himself) are rested and rotated.
      A lot of that depends on Keita and AOC staying fit though.

      He is a legend fullstop. He lifted the 6th UCL. He proved that he is a great midfielder and influences players around him with his determination and professionalism.

      Don't know about legend yet, get his hands on a league title and he can shout his own mouth off on that one. Needs to continue like he finished the season though.

      So Gerrard isn't a legend too. Both are because both put us on the European biggest stage :)

      I think there is a gulf in class there that we may be overlooking between Gerrard and Hendo.

      You can’t even begin to compare the two.

      Henderson turned me into a fan last season but Gerrard was literally sensational from the minute he first put on the red shirt. Best player of all time.

      I think he is a legend just as Dudek is or Jimmy Traore those players who lift the CL trophy are all Legends in my opinion. Stevie has his own category of Legend status I doubt we will ever ever see his like again we are just so lucky to see him at his best.

      I never compared the two but Huyton said that to be a legend, you need to lift the league and I disagreed. Both captains lifted the huge UCL since in itself is an achievement that for me you deserve to be called Legend.

      I totally agree but Trent has the potential to reach his level of Legendness.

      Agreed with Trent his age is crazy for the intelligence on the football field he plays with the mind of a 34 year old he is a joy to watch.
      However Jordan....just love this kid. Just watched his big interview on LFC TV and I will to my last breath on this earth remember his absolute raw emotion when he lifted the CL Trophy it s was beautiful and really heart warming because we know some people doubted him and then to see him with his Dad what a moment for those of us who have lost their Dads.

      For me you don't start calling players legends until they've retired.

      My hero's were Rush and Dalglish who lifted both the league and the European Cup.

      NOW THEY'RE FUCKING LEGENDS!!

      You may be from that era. I was born in 91 and started following in 99 and my heros were Owen, Fowler and Gerrard when I was young. I never saw our team lift the domestic so it may influence my previous comment.

      Very good way to start the season. He definitely benefits with Fab in the side. Hopefully they both start in the side together for a large part of the season.

      Mr technical above can he explain why Henderson has zero press resistance against teams that press so hard ie limited time on the ball = the performance tonight!

      Every time a bad touch or stray pass in midfield happened you didn’t have to look twice you knew it was him. Stunk the place out.

      Almost created a goal in the first minutes, played the most incisive passes of the match, put TAA in behind for Robertsons goal, but yeah, keep churning out the same tired, lazy tropes.

      I did not watch the game but did watch the highlights, and saw those passes you mention, which were fantastic. How that post can be made defies logic.
