      Said it in his player thread, losing both him and Milner in the same transfer window would be a real disaster for us. We shouldn’t underestimate the value these lads have off the pitch and on the training ground.

      The chance to move Hendo on was a couple of years ago. Now we need him to become the Milner of this side - limited playing time but the standard setter and the one that leads the cup team.

      Hope there’s nothing in this.

      I wouldnt be surprised if he left for a big payday in the sun next summer.

      Being denied again, more twitter BS.
      For sure.... He seems motivated for this season, even if it's at a reduced role. Came into camp cut up as an ounce of dope

      I think it’s just pure speculation, ultimately it will be down to Jordan himself, yes he May double his dollar but as a professional athlete he will want to play at the highest possible level for as long as he possibly can, or any such like decision is taken out of his hands,

      He remains the Captain of arguably one of the Best football clubs in the world, for me he comes across as the type that money is furthest from his mindset so doubling his dollar will not be the straw that breaks the camels back, no pun intended,

      What he Will desire more than any amount of money is another opportunity to captain his club on another title challenge, he like the majority of us will be absolutely gutted how last season panned out, and he will arguably want to set the record straight perhaps more than most,

      We’ve all seen how hard he has been working in the close season, we’ve all seen how ripped he is, now I’m no psychologist , and no rocket scientist’s need apply but for me you don’t put all those hard yards in only give in to a few dollars more, you put all those hard yards in if you believe you and your teammates can and will Mount a very very serious challenge to Pep and his oil slickers,

      That’s what’s in Jordan Henderson’s mind, and NOT upsetting his whole family by upping sticks for a few dollars more, and perhaps more importantly giving up another opportunity to be that captain of the English premier league Champions !!!


      Go figure ?

      My thoughts exactly, I wouldn’t entertain him going anywhere, even if he wanted to go.

      Sentimental nonsense, where was Henderson’s leadership last season when we we’re being embarrassed by the relegation fodder?

      If he leaves which I doubt there is plenty of senior players who can lead by example on the pitch.

      Yea, I think we get too hung up on hanging onto players as a fanbase.

      Plenty of players who will lead the lads next season.

      It’s the same with Thiago - a decent offer and the club will accept

      But would be surprised to see Henderson going beyond the leadership he does fill a crucial HG spot

      Don't know if it's sentimental nonsense or not but I really don't see the positives in losing your captain and vice captain in the same transfer window. Especially when the manager is on record saying how important both players have been for him in terms of making this team successful. Not like next in line VVD is assured of a long term place in our team either with his form in the last 12 months.

      On top of that there's little to no transfer fee generated from both of them and it leaves us needing to find another player on what is surely a very limited budget now.

      How exactly is Henderson assured of a place ahead of our two major midfield signings?

      I think its bollocks, but I am prepared to choke on humble pie, for me anything with a wee blue bird in the top right corner is extremely dodgy, as for press and/or other media outlets most  are in frenzy mode this time of the year vying for the biggest headline,

      I’ll believe it when I see the river Jordan 😁 in the background with Hendo holding a club scarf aloft !!!

      If I could see his departure resulting in another midfielder joining who could make a decisive impact, then it's debatable -- even though I don't like the idea at all of losing our captain whilst we are a team in transition.

       But what transfer fee is he likely to command that could help us sign such a player? His experience and leadership qualities aren't easily replaced IMO. I don't understand how on the one hand it can be claimed his leadership qualities have made him the player he is only for these qualities to then be considered insignificant now the Saudi's are interested.

      Of course if he wants to leave, what can we do? we have to adjust and others must assume more responsibility but I don't agree with the view that we should be looking to offload him.

      Quite conflicted with this.

      Firstly, due to principle, what the absolute F**k. Why be an ambassador for equality and human rights, then by choice go and condone and opt into being a sportswashed puppet. This put a big stain on Steve’s character for me. Amazing player/servant, but not the sharpest tool in the box.

      Secondly, UAE has thrown a lifeline to competitors in the league, buying mediocre aging players at a premium allowing teams to recoup much needed funds. If we had Bobby, Ox, Keita on contracts could have got a few bob for them this summer, and would assume we could pickup best part of 60M for Thiago & Henderson which could both go for nothing in 12-18 months. Obviously we would miss Hendo’s energy and voice, but already feel like this team is evolving.

      It’s being reported by Joyce and Ornstein that he’s seriously considering a deal that could be with 700k per week.

      Holy F**k that’s a shitload of money.

      I really never thought he would go, but it seems odd that those two in particular are reporting it. They don’t typically throw something like that out there unless it’s got legs.

      If he goes we absolutely need to buy another homegrown midfielder I would think.

      How much would we get for Jordan? Surely £50m at least?

      Would be a big loss to suddenly lose our captain but if the money is big enough and we can sign a couple more top young midfielders then maybe not the worst in long term.

      I assume we would sign Lavia immediately who qualifies as home grown.
