      Even though its February he's still kind of settling into this side and finding his feet.

      A quality footballer who will shine here given time.

      Amazes me how many fans are slating him online. Especially after everyone salivated over him earlier in the season. He’s the same player now, it’s just the team isn’t getting results. We are lucky to have him and he will be key to any success going forward.

      I agree, but he along with the rest of the team have lost their way recently, think back to how good he was in those first few games

      For sure. Dumb ass tackles too. However, I think he steps it up a notch in a MF of Hendo and Fab. Wanna see that before I judge him

      Absolutely spot on mate, think the exact same thing. Will we get to see it this Season, who f**king knows?

      Starting to be concerned about this fella. He is just a walking liability and not producing the kind of moments we signed him for.

      Hate to say but he reminds me of Veron at Man U, in terms of the impact he has had but also could be looked at being a signing a different player for a different style, and was it absolutely necessary?

      Hoping he picks up form when Fabinho is back.

      If Henderson stays in defence for the next few games, then would like to see a midfield 3 of Fabinho, Thiago and Keita/Jones which would give a very good balance.

      Think we won't see the best of him till we have Fab and Hendo in there with him, until then don't want to make too much of a judgement.

      Agree he is not the powerful run all day midfielder like all our other midfielders whose primary role has been to run through and over the opposition.
      Need a change of tactics with him in midfield if we are to see the best of his skill set but we are just playing the way we always have!

      Needs to be a bit more disciplined in his tackling. At Bayern the refs probably turned a blind eye. (Jürgen should maybe tell him that the refs over here will only do that if he signed for ManU.)

      Most likely is he is trying a bit too hard to impress, and also wants to show Jürgen he can do the gegenpressing etc. Don't think it'll be a long term problem. He's a class player and will be a good signing.

      Bit too f**king patient in recent home games!

      I couldn't believe he didn't get a yellow card in his first 5 minutes on the pitch. Amazing !!!


      And there was no need to even put that tackle on Barnes!!! He wasn't going anywhere!

      So frustrating but, as above, will judge him when he has Hendo and Fab next to him. This can't be the normal way he plays!!

      His defending is truly awful. Gives away a key foul almost every damn game, and is just reckless with his challenges. In a MF 3 of Fab and Hendo he won't be ask to do a whole lot defensively, and I'm sure he will thrive. But atm he's hurting us more than he's helping. Not very adaptable atm

      Spot on mate.

      Still waiting for that worldly pass that he puts in on a dime, for one our front 3 to smash into the back of the net!

      Patience!!! The guy has all the skills, give him some time to adjust. If he plays like that in 2021/22 then we have all the right to complain.

      Jordan Henderson on Thiago at today's presser:

      "Thiago has been brilliant since he came to the club. I think everybody knows how good a player he is. He's a world-class player and he's been great to have around. Even off the field, he's a really good person, leads by example, gives everything and you can learn a lot from him. I think he's been a fantastic addition to the squad. He'll probably know Leipzig better than anyone, so I'm sure he'll be telling us one or two things over the next 24 hours to help with that. But he's settled in very well, like I knew he would. He's a phenomenal player and hopefully he can just keep improving each time he plays for us and getting used to the way we play as a team."
