    Last season the mantra seemed to be grind it out...get the win. We seemed to able to do that week in week out. I think VVD was a big factor. He gave us that certainty at the back. We've had so many injuries this season which seemed to knock us out of our stride. Even with that we got to Christmas at top spot. I think the constant changing and then using Fab out of position just seemed to be too much to bear. It's had a knock-on effect on the rest. Hendo getting injured too meant we lost more running and leadership. Mane hasn't had a break in about four years! Robertson needs rest. Not enough quality cover on the bench. Ironically early in the season I thought we looked pretty strong in depth but our first team were looking fit and able at that time!

    That's mostly down to our defenders, forwards, Thiago and Gini, Fab did more of his stupidness to see is 1-0 down early on against the filthy, like he did with Modric v Real and McGinn v Villa, although, after that game, he improved on his weakness and stayed very much central just in front of the back four, more of a fifth defender than a CM, blocking lines and clearing any loose balls and kept his destroyer instinct under control and stopped blindly charging to whichever opposition player had the ball, which is unsurprisingly, how I said I though he should be used and that I'd be happy to have him back in midfield if he just did that and he did that very well

    Jurgen and the coaches now need to work on that ahead of next season, because if they don't address it, when we revert to playing more expansive and him staying in his position and not charging to the player with the ball being vitally important, it'll cost us goals again

    I always compare apples with apples, sitting deep just in front of our defence central with us playing a deeper line and having more players back is very different from playing as we normally do

    10 years and the lads gone from strength to strength. All that’s left is for him to win the Fa cup and he’d have won the lot as a Liverpool player.

    Thinking about when he first signed, the fee and his first season. Wow look where he is now. Fair play Hendo lad.

    Absolute legend for this club and a player so many draw inspiration from through his incredible example of what you can achieve through hard work and that hard work never stopping, always and continually working harder than ever to try and improve

    Liverpool captain and England midfielder Jordan Henderson, who becomes an MBE, has been recognised for not only his service to football but also to charity, particularly during Covid-19.

    In response to the pandemic, Henderson rallied his fellow captains and players to form the Premier League coronavirus fund to raise money for the NHS.

    The midfielder also became an ambassador to NHS Charities Together, an organisation which raises funds for more than 240 National Health Services charities, and dedicated his MBE to NHS staff.

    "My family and I feel greatly humbled to be recognised in this way, more so given the reason for it," he said. "There are many privileges that come from playing professional football, but having a platform to promote a charitable cause such as Players Together and NHS Charities Together is as big a privilege as any.

    "It's important for me to state that although the honour has been issued to me personally, the credit must be shared to a far larger group of people and I accept this in the knowledge I was part of something special, rather than the reason for it."

    And to think Brenny wanted to swap him for Clint Dempsey. Clueless.
