      I love that he started off with the big one, then went smaller and smaller.

      Jordan has been a true leader and put in a strong performance for the club.

      I wonder if his starting position in the team is under threat for this coming season.

      think Jürgen knows how much he can get out of him and his experience maybe used for the bigger games. Whatever happens he will give his all.

      I think he's still in the starting 11 for the big games. Fabinho, Thiago and Henderson is still the best midfield 3 in my opinion. But there will be a lot of rotation and he'll probably play less minutes.

      Is it an option to use him more as backup for Fabinho?

      It's an option but I think he is better as a box-to-box midfielder.

      I agree that the more advanced midfield role is his best position but we have a lot of players who can fill that role- Thiago, Elliot, Jones, Ox, Naby and possibly Carvalho if Klopp wants to play him there and not in the front 3.
      We only have Hendo and Milner to cover Fab so he might be needed more as a DM.

      Unless we buy another midfielder I don't see Hendo having to be worried about his starting position being in jeopardy. Last year by the end of the season we regularly start three of Hendo/Ketia/Thiago/Fabinho and I would expect it this season with the hope that either Jones/Elliott/Carvalho can make breakthrough to become regular starter. Milner will make a few starts but I can see him being off the bench option and Ox (assuming he is stays) will rotate in and out of match day squad.

      Hendo played most minutes out of all the midfielders and at his age would be nice to not have to rely on him playing 50 games this season.

      I agree with all of this, barring we continue to run a 4-3-3. Hendo is a magnificent player, and even better captian. A lot of what he does goes unnoticed, and the documentary did a solid job showing that.

      However, with a true number 9, I could see Klopp going to a 4-2-3-1, like he ran when he had a number 9 at Dortmund. I think Bobby would benefit from this and would have a big role to play coming from the deeper center attack. If we go with a 4-2-3-1 Hendo will still play, just not as much. Thiago and Fab are our top 2 in MF atm. No shame in that as both are world class.

      All of this is a big if though, and Hendo is still going to be as vital as ever no matter what formation we run

      Hendo's days as a nailed-on starter are numbered, though.

      This upcoming season, sure, he should be a regular starter alongside Thiago and Fabihnho as our best 3, but midfield is probably next in line for a refresh. I expect next summer we'll see midfield activity and bring in a young, high-quality midfielder who will be one of the regular starters going forward, displacing Hendo who will be 33yo by then.

      I don't think 2 in midfield and 4 attacking players can be a regular starting formation for us. Fab-Thiago with another 4 attacking players in front is not defensive enough. Maybe Bobby could be ok but he'd be playing as a midfielder not a 10. Our team is very fluid with Trent also moving into the centre a lot so the formation is less fixed anyway.

      In the last 2 seasons we've moved to a more possession based game, I think 3 midfielders in necessary for this. That will probably still be Thiago, Fabinho, Hendo in the big games with Naby and Elliot getting a lot of games and the others getting a few as well.

      I completely agree, I don’t see too much changing with the introduction of Nunez. He can certainly be a target for crosses and may play a little more centrally but he is mobile and played often as an inside left last season so I still think we will see the same mobility and fluidity in attack that we have become so accustomed to.

      I’m sure Klopp will continue with his favoured midfield three and a possession based approach and that Hendo will be very much a key member of the three. We play with so much more control when he is the side, several times season there were games where he didn’t start and I was shouting at the tv to get him on, and then as soon as he is on we keep the ball better, the oppo drop off and we’re on the front foot. He really has developed into a terrific player who is still imho underrated by our fan base.
