      No No No, that midfield is WAY to negative, yes we'd have possession and would be doing lovely sideways passes all game but it would create very little and Atletico could just focus on marking our front three and blocking Robbo and Trent and game done, safe in the knowledge that the midfield is impotent.

      We have to have at least one attacking midfielder tomorrow, be that Keita, Ox or even Lallana

      I’m sure that negative midfield won us the champions league last year, lost the league by 1 point & have walked the league this year..

      Same midfield three all season, I don't remember that.

      Watford is irrelevant as the whole team was sh*te, against Chelsea we made 7 changes incl 2 to the front line, despite that we created plenty of chances so Chelsea backs up my point, thanks.

      Created next to nothing after for the final 75 minutes of the game after Chelsea got their first. Henderson, Wijnaldum & Fabinho is our big game midfield & it's gotten results in important PL matches & in a Champions League final

      Oh wow don't use the CL final as a yard stick, that game was bloody awful, apart from the result ;-).
      I agree that Henderson, Wijnaldum & Fabinho is a very solid midfield, but against a mega defensive team like Atletico it lacks creativity, we MUST have an attack angle through the middle otherwise we'll end up crossing harmless balls into the box for 90 minutes.

      Exactly. We got the result. Same result that would see us through tonight if we repeated it

      Bear in mind we were also 1-0 up after about a minute so the need for any sort of direct / creative football was massively reduced from the second minute onwards

      If you play with two holders to counter the counter attacks then you play your full backs high up, narrow your three forwards and have your false 9 in a hole behind the other two then that's where your creativity comes from.. the full backs (there arent a better two than ours for that) and Bobby in the hole..

      Dont fall into the trap that creativity can only come from your midfield

      The less obvious your tactics are, the harder they are to defend

      You can also have Gini breaking the lines and attacking late

      Yep.

      He always seemed like a great guy when I spoke with him on here but following him on Twitter and he's an even better guy!

      Pretty sure one or two on here have dropped into his pub over the years.

      https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/first-team/397529-jordan-henderson-explains-inspiration-behind-champions-league-trophy-lift

      Jordan Henderson has revealed how his Liverpool teammates inspired his iconic ‘little shuffle’ Champions League trophy lift a year ago today.

      The Reds captain became the fifth man to hoist aloft Old Big Ears on the club’s behalf on June 1, 2019 after a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid.

      He marked the moment of history with a prolonged shuffle towards his teammates, increasing anticipation levels to their highest before finally raising the European Cup into the air as the squad celebrated around him.

      Henderson’s unique approach to such a significant responsibility has since become his trademark as the midfielder repeated the trick when collecting the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.

      But, back at the beginning, back on that sweltering night in Spain, what started as a dressing-room joke he transformed into a defining image.

      “Actually I didn’t really plan on doing that, to be honest,” Henderson explained to Liverpoolfc.com during a new, extended interview reflecting on events at Estadio Metropolitano a year ago.

      “It was a little bit of banter in the changing rooms prior. Robbo was messing about, he’d always do the shuffle pretending to lift the trophy and stuff like that. So, when the time came I felt as though I just wanted to sort of do it together and use that sort of banter that we’d had previously in terms of the little shuffle and stuff.

      “I just wanted to be able to see the lads’ faces just before I lifted it as well. That was really special for me, to be able to see the lads rather than just have my back to them.

      “So, yeah, it was a little bit off the cuff, to be honest. After we did that [for] the Champions League the lads made sure I kept on doing it for the Super Cup and Club World Cup.”

      He continued: “A lot of people enjoyed it, especially young kids and stuff. I had a lot of videos of kids doing it, doing the shuffle and stuff, so that was really nice.

      “You don’t plan to do that when you are lifting the Champions League. You just want to go up and lift it, but it was just something that I felt was right because, like I say, the things that Robbo was doing previously and I just wanted to be able to see the lads before I lifted it. That was a special moment as well.”

      After weeks of careful build-up, planning and preparations for a second consecutive crack at European football’s most prized trophy, Liverpool earned a penalty 22 seconds after kick-off.

      Mohamed Salah thumped the spot-kick in to give his side a 1-0 lead that would remain in place for almost the entirety of the remainder of the final.

      As Spurs pushed for an equaliser and both teams toiled in the Madrid humidity, substitute Divock Origi released the pressure valve with a precise low finish across the goalkeeper.

      “It was a massive goal and a massive moment in the game,” said Henderson of his emotions as Origi’s finish settled in the bottom corner of the Tottenham net.

      “Of course, it gave us that little bit more breathing space and probably deflated Spurs that little bit more, so that was another key moment within the game.

      “But even still, and it’s 2-0, you are basically just giving everything, trying to defend as best you can, trying to keep the ball as long as you can until that final whistle goes.”

      When the final whistle was blown, confirming the Reds as European champions, teeing up Henderson to follow in the footsteps of Emlyn Hughes, Phil Thompson, Graeme Souness and Steven Gerrard, the feelings were unrivalled.

      “Every emotion you can think of really,” said the skipper of that moment. “Joy, relief, happiness, just everything that you could possibly think of.

      “It was just the most special moment to hear that final whistle go, to know that all of the hard work and everything that we have done together in the past however many years, we actually got over the line and managed to win one of the greatest trophies ever, so it was everything I dreamt of and more really.

      “You can’t compare that feeling with anything else. It’s so hard to explain now.

      “It’s the best feeling I’ve ever had in my life. Obviously, people will say, ‘Well, when you have kids’ and stuff, which again of course is a totally unique and most special feeling in the world as well, but it’s different.

      “Just everything that goes in with sport, the competitiveness and everything, it’s just a different feeling to when you have kids or anything else like that.

      “It is so unique and it was an amazing feeling I hope I’ll never forget.”

      He may go down in history as the most underrated captain of a top football club ever.

      Hendo has led us to a Champions League, World Club Cup, and Premier League title in back to back seasons.

      He is a natural leader, top player, and has proven himself to be the rightful successor to Stevie.

      Legend.
