don't know why people criticise hendo so much, he's only 22/23 and can only get better and i know we payed alot for him but he needs time just like every other liverpool youngster and he has done very well when he has played this season and he should play alot more than some of the players who get ahead of him in the pecking order

"A future great. What's all this talk of selling him to Fulham?? FSG don't invest £16mill in a player who is showing real potential, just to offload him to Premiership also-rans! LFC and Henderson especially will progress under BR's tutelage."

"People say give BR a chance, when he has achieved nothing, but then slate Hendo. Hypocrisy? Yes. If FSG's excuse for under investing and running the club down is the "belief in youth", then Hendo is as good a player to believe in as any."

"Well, its settled then....If a majestic player like Warnock says that Hendo is the bomb then who are we (mere mortals) to disagree. Warnock has likened Hendo to himself and says quite passionately that having played against Hendo he can inform us that he is good. I think a lot of world class players would like to get a ringing endorsement from Warny. "

"Oh c'mon. Most clubs in prem would wan't a player like Jordan Henderson even if he wasn't an automatic starter the likes of Chelsea, City, Manu and so on would value him. Problem is some people have these pre-conceptions and are blinded by what quality they have. "

"Each to their own on opinions, but some ae just farcical. It even suggests a clear lack of knowledge or football or they have an agenda against the player. £14, 15, 16m what ever JH was signed for isn't that too high a fee if you compare to many other players Joe Allen included. "
ArtistFormelyKnownAsAni-road

"Hendo was always going to be doomed..because his price tag suggested he had to start all guns blazing, which sadly never happened..meaning he was an easy target. He's had many critics (including myself), but out of all the so called misfits he's the only one that can maybe justify his place in the squad."

"agree with you DJSmiley95! the secret that has accompanied the progress of Hendo as a person and as a footballer has been the finding of some consistency along the way, which is what he did lack beforehand, the capacity to play on high lvel week-in week-out! On the quality of the player we can't argue YNWA Hendo"

"Why invest £16m then let him go to Fulham ? Insu was let go for £500,000 and has been resold for £10m and look at Tom Ince??? when are LFC going to learn? BR on the other hand has picked his little favourite head boy over Jordan and you have to ask why?????"

"Billy B girl- it is not just BR's prefernce to over-look Hendo instead of Joe that is my gripe personally, although I don't understand why? It is BR's prefernece to play Joe ahead of most midfielders when he is suffering with a shoulder injury and hasn't shown any form what so ever. In-fact often being a liability by giving the ball away. "
ArtistFormelyKnownAsAni-road
27th Mar 2013 14:00
"I am not suggesting Joe will never be good enough but at present he offers nothing and upset a balance we seemed to be forging within the side. BR lost thatlast match through naive, inept management at a time when many like myself was starting to believe him and have great hope for next season. "

"I get surprised at fans who are surprised that BR plays an injured Allen ahead of a fit Herderson - the simple reason is BR doesn't fancy KK's signings, he prefers his own summer signings who are INJURED! Borini (injured while at LFC) and Allen (was bought with a long standing shoulder injury when he was bought)!"
Buddha130654
27th Mar 2013 14:12
"Its a moot point comparing two non-performing players as in Allen and Hendo. Are some fans criteria for being a good player is to be better than another player regardless of that players abilities? Jeez. I do believe if we see ourselves as a big club then mediocre players can not pull on the red shirt. any longer. Time for a clear out.. "

"There is a lot more wrong with this club if BR is picking his buys over more talented players but it seems to be the norm now with Kenny not playing Dirk and Maxi ?? I long for a manager (you know who!) who will pick a player for talent alone!"
Buddha130654
27th Mar 2013 14:17
"We all know our first choice midfield of: Lucas, SG and Coutinho is here for a while, and I know BR is going to buy some cover who will invariably be better than Hendo, so its inevitable he is being sold and then all this nonsense about future captain will come to a thankful end. The guy seems a nice man but just not good enough for us, and many better players than him have failed here. "

"If he wants to stick around and contend with Jonjo and Suso as back up to SG then good luck to him but for me he is at the bottom of that pile. We will definitely buy new midfielder's and if its the calibre of Wanyama then Hendo can kiss his LFC career goodbye. BR clearly does not rate him and why would he. "

"What Coutinho has single handedly done is to show the owners policy at its best. He will make aspiring youngsters like Sterling and Suso stand up and see what level they need to be at to be in contention for a start. If we thought that Sterling was brilliant then Coutinho had made us reconsider. "

"LDW, I am surprised you are questioning BR toughness. He has taken on one of the most iconic jobs in football and immediately set out to stamp his style on the team, which shows, single-mindedness, courage and vision. He makes tough calls and yes gets some wrong but boy does he make them. His first season he has shown serious class and will be storming next year. "

"Buddha you're being naive. Coutinho will fall of at some point this season. Like Gerrard said recently, It'll be a while before we see the best of him. So you think FSG, BR and a 21 year old (in June) Brazilian called Phillipe Coutinho will contribute in propelling LFC to the top 4?"

"I think BR has learnt a lot this season and will be better for it next season. IMO a commanding CB is imperative. With no Reina or Carra v Soton we were all over the place. IMO BR should be judged at the end of next season,where he will have his own players and style fully settled. As long as FSG fully back him and we don't have the fiasco of last summers TW"
