    Did you ever think when this guy signed that he would Captain us to

    The Champions League
    The Super Cup
    The Club World Cup

    and actually win all THREE for us?

    Not me I freely admit.

    And Rodgers wanted to swap him for Clint Fucking Dempsey.

    Walk On Jordan Henderson Liverpool Legend.

    He came with a decent rep so it wasn’t out of the question.

    He’s a model pro and if we can clinch the title this season he’ll be up there as a legend.

    He played well again today.

    2 fun facts:

    1. He played the most premier league games in the decade. Milner is in second.

    2. Also, right now, he is the Liverpool captain with the highest win %, I believe.

    Nah, but then I didn't think we would build a side so brilliant around him. I did stick with him when he first joined and was putting in fairly meek performances on the right of midfield. He had a decent attitude, was pretty bright and worked tremendously hard. When you've got all of them qualities it's worth sticking with a player. Despite signing some shite, I'm sure Comolli will sometimes think of the grief he took from Liverpool fans over the Henderson deal and chuckle.

    I like him and rate him as a player, and I’m always glad to see how name on the team sheet. But I don’t think he’ll even be a Liverpool legend mate.

    If he captains us to a league title, he'll absolutely be a Liverpool legend, even if he does nothing else with us again.

    Last season, maybe the one before there was Lots of talk about how VVD should be capt cos can't have a club capt that doesnt play often or whatever...there's been none of that talk.  He's upped his game he's been absolutely brilliant and again tonight.
    Well done to Hendo.

    I have never been a big fan of his, but his importance as a player hit me when I realized that we may have won the PL had he been around to play against Chelsea, Crystal Palace under Rodgers ( he got banned for a red against Man City ).  I thought today he was our MOM - easy.  But maybe we don't want our Captain to be a super-star or the best player, perhaps it is better to have a good player with his qualities to manage the tempo of the midfield.

    Legend.

    All of them are, this squad.
    But he is a worthy captain of the European and World champion.

    Since we last won the league.

    Gerrard, Rush, Hyypia, and Fowler have all had spells as captain.

    I like Henderson, fantastic attitude and nice bloke but it does almost seem wrong that he might lift the trophy after all those amazing names have failed to in the last 30 years.

    I'm not going to complain if we win of course but it feels like it should be a more memorable player lifting the trophies.

    He's definitely decent but he's over shadowed by the front three, VvD, Alison and maybe a few others.

    I actually thought Henderson was excellent yesterday. I've probably never seen him play that well in the DM position. He was cutting passing lines, covering space, dictating the tempo etc. But what surprised me the most was that he finally turned with the ball at his feet. He didn't do that "pass it back, I don't know who's behind me" move all the time. This alone made his overall game quicker.
    It's pretty obvious that Hendo has improved, especially these last two seasons. The inclusion of Fabinho "freed" him from playing at DM, which maybe gave him some confidence back.
    But no, he wasn't this good all the time, we never saw the instant impact we've seen with other players playing for LFC. With him there was a valid debate.
    Is he better than Fabinho? Is he better than Wijnaldum? Milner? Hamann? Alonso? Mascherano? etc.

    Club legend? He's already there.

    Good post, @Modo, and I completely agree: he looks so much more of a complete midfielder than he did even a year ago. Even got a shot on target that brought the best save of the night from Diego Alves. His passing was sharp, quick and confident; such a contrast to the "sideways Henderson" we saw so many times in the past. My biggest concern with him was always press resistance; but he seems to have learned a lot from Fabinho, Gini etc – on this form he's as hard to dispossess as any of them, because he makes such quick decisions and executes them with such confidence. It's time to put the old debates to bed; Hendo's really good.

    I'll stick my neck out and claim that Gerrard was not half the captain that Hendo is.
