Your defense of Henderson is admirable however the comment about Steven Gerrard covers everything in sh*te.
Do you not realise those words on an LFC platform are akin to blasphemy?
No such thing as blasphemy where I live. I live in a modern country where people are allowed to think for themselves. It's not the Middle Ages any more, burn the witch, all that sort of thing. Although we do seem to be heading back that way unfortunately.
Gerrard's probably the best player I've seen in a red shirt and I'm a Red 50 years this month, in fact 50 years today, FA Cup Final '71 was the first day I can remember supporting LFC, so I'll not give one atom of a sh*te about younguns wailing and gnashing their teeth about what I can and can't say about MY FUCKING CLUB BEFORE IT WAS YOURS, thank you very much ladies and gentlemen
However, Stevie wasn't a great captain. Not a patch on Henderson. Stevie could raise his own game (1 person). Henderson raises the game of each and every one of his teammates game in game out (10 people). 10/1 = 10*. See I've even provided my workings.
I'll leave the rumours about how there were effectively 2 dressing rooms during Stevie's time as captain: one for him and Carra and anyone they rated as worthy of playing in the same team as Stevie, such as Nando and Luis; and the other lads, who prevented Stevie from getting his precious little medals. I'm sure it's all written down in some autobiography somewhere, if it's true of course. Never believe a Liverpool cabbie, they say. Apparently sometimes they tell you stuff that might not actually be factual, which was a shock to me when I found out
"Eeerrr how can I leave after this?" wasn't exactly his finest moment though was it, face like a slapped arse minutes after winning Big Ears #5 is not what I expect from the captain of Liverpool Football Club. A lot of Reds never forgave him for that. That was blasphemy in my book.
I didn't see Jordan Henderson looking miserable as f**k after lifting #6 because he was gonna have to change his mind on moving to play for his precious Mourinho
So, there you go, greatest LFC player in the last 50 years? Probably, depending on how you define 'greatest'. Good captain? Nah.
That, as Rafa once said, is the facts.
