    How many managers have such a lack of ego that they would allow that?

    The Lucas argument.

    On Hendo, he's playing very well at the moment. Long may it continue. Needs to pitch in with goals and assists

    Benitez did the same thing with Jamie Carragher, he was flipping positions at full back under Houllier and not outstanding in either. Benitez comes in and puts him at centre back and we all know how good he was playing there.

    Excellent again last night. I just wish his brilliant strike had gone in. Would have topped off a fantastic performance.
    I bet you can squeal like a pig!

    Good point. But it's also worth mentioning Hendo was never meant to play DM when we signed him. That was never the position he was intended for, nor the one where he performed best.

    I thought he was bought to play in the midfield...? I donít buy this he was bought as an AM.. if he was whoever decided that should be fired...? Oh yes he was..

    He isnít a Coutinho or a David Silva - he isnít a playmaker, lacks the shooting ability and doesnít dribble IMO - he has to be adaptable - this was the big issue really, not quite good enough as an AM and not effective enough as a DM - he was struggling for games by last Spring - Keita hadnít shown enough and yet he was still struggling for starts - he has stepped up to the plate. Had words with Jurgen who gave him a chance in his favoured role and he has done him proud.

    But he looks far better when playing deeper now too. Even looked capable at CB. He has become what he always needed to. He isnít blessed with greatest talent TBF. - but is honest as the day is long, hard working and has crafted what he has to be effective. His biggest strengths were always his stamina and his passing BUT often he got it wrong..lacking the confidence to play the killer ball often in favour of passing the buck.

    Emerged from the shadow of Gerrard finally.

    Something has happened - the confidence is flowing and especially since lifting the CL - we see a totally different player..

    Just my opinion though

    He was bought as a box-to-box midfielder who could fill in on the wing or at DM. He was immense in 2014 when he actually played in his preferred role. He was shite on the wing under Kenny and not completely ideal at DM under Klopp.

    Hell, Gerrard could fill in at DM but it was clear it wasn't his best ever position.
