      Mane and VVD have been better like!

      Mane's my player of the season so far for us, been different class.


      They both get the highlights and rightly should be up there

      This is a great read though - and good to see him prove so many wrong

      What a hit that was from him, still can't believe De Gea got a fingernail to divert it.

      Holding my hands up.
      Was a critic of Henderson but he has turned a corner in the last 18 months.

      It’s not just been the last two months - it’s been the past 18 months

      No

      he had a few good and a few bad games in the past 18 months. but I agree with HScRed last 2 months he's been putting a lot of 7-8/10 performances and another great performance against the Mancs. But better than VVD, Mane and TAA who for the past 18 months playing exceptionally well? nah.

      Sorry but just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it wasn’t happening - Henderson has been superb for a while now  - it seems that because the media suddenly highlight him others jump on the bandwagon - Henderson has been key for a number of years now , the manager knew it , a number of fans knew it and it’s good to see others coming around to it

      No, I can see it. put your bias aside. He is a good player, always was but not as good as you think he is and he hasn't played better than Mane, TAA, VVD, Alisson and to an extent Robertson in the last 18 months. Last season he had a few good games, few average ones and a few bad ones. The other players I mentioned had more good games than bad ones.

      I'm happy that he won the CL and hopefully he adds the league to his collection too as a captain.

      As the time goes by this guy is becoming my favorite player of this generation, he is rarely on the a goalscorer or even an assistant but somehow he is always there, on the pitch, running, fighting for every inch of the pitch, sticking out for his team mates, a true captain.

      Took doing a "Lucas" to a whole new level.

      From being compared to Cleverley to potentially being the captain of a team of the ages which may pick up back to back CL's and their first PL in 30years.

      Hats off to the man. Do you remember when we were in the final straight during the Rodgers season when we just lost out to City? Henderson either got injured or sent off and our form dipped. I remember some saying we lost the title because of that.

      He's becoming indispensable.

      Well in Skipper.

      Hear me out.... Could you argue a case for him to win PFA POY if we win the league? He certainly doesnt have the goals or assists that is normally required, but then again we dont require that from him.

      If you watch us regularly you see the work rate, the long outlet balls he breaks teams down with, the number of hats he wears (helping the full backs defend, picking the ball up in deeper areas, playing the 6 and even occasionally allowing one of the CBs to get forward and slipping in there) and his overall leadership. He's a lot like Kante the year Leicester won it.

      He's never played better in his career and he very well may be one of the best midfielders in the game today. He's certainly one of the most versatile

      I was one of those people. Yea he got a three game ban for a red and I, like many others, stand by it that we would have won the League but for this.

      A fantastic footballer, captain and by the looks of it and from what you hear a great person as well.

      Can't wait to see him lift that trophy above his head in May.

      Most passes in the game tonight (139) at the highest success rate (94%) than anyone else. Hendo right now is absolutely dominant in that midfield. Also slotted in to full back easily when Naby came on.

      another Captains performance his energy and drive really keeps the tempo up all the time. You cant really say any player is having a bad game or season they all put in a shift in every game we work harder than any other team and that allows us then to show our quality.
      Just watched the game and it was one of those games were we could have upped the pace if required. Hendo Captain of European, World and English Champions that's some trophy haul.

      Trouble with Hendo is that it's not like he took over the captaincy from just anyone, he took it over from arguably our greatest ever player who also had the armband for 10 years or so and being English, the same kind of age as when Gerrard got the role, the comparisons were always going to be made and there was always going to be pressure. Not to mention he was VC when Gerrard was in his last season so leading the team out against the likes of United and Madrid, knowing Gerrard wanted more than anything to be on that pitch instead of the bench, I can't imagine it helped him be as confident in the role as he could have been, especially with results going far from in our favour.

      Before I have had the view that he was definitely good enough for us, in fact I've always thought that one of the main reasons why we blew the chance to win the league under BR is because we lost Hendo to suspension when he was smashing it every game, he was one of our most important players. But I wasn't sure he could thrive to his potential under the weight of the captaincy, which is no shame, many players play better without the responsibility, but over the last 18 months, he has really flourished in the role and become a proper captain and really displayed his leadership skills IMO.

      Yep - owns the captaincy and has been superb for at least 2 seasons now. I feel good when his name is on the team sheet

      Gerrard said that he felt pressure to deliver silverware as captain, following in the footsteps of many greats, I expect Hendo was probably feeling the same so I don't think it's any coincidence that given the clubs transformation in the last 2 years, it's coincided with Hendo reaching this level. Although it was only last June we started winning things under Klopp, that entire season after the Champions League run the season before, it was clear something special was about to happen. A lot of pressure will have been lifted from his shoulders.

      Absolutely - he’s won the biggest prize in club football, he must feel 10 feet tall and to be fair has played like a man with nothing to prove - dedicated, strong, skilful, positive and direct.

      Everything a midfielder and leader should be.

      I can't remember what game it was but there was a moment after we had won a game where you can see him say to Klopp something along the lines of "Wasn't good enough, that was sh*t" epitomises him as a captain for me and I can't get enough of that mentality.
