    Forgive me, I just choked on my porridge there for a moment..

    Incidentally, Nineteenx, can you explain the difference between press and counter press? Iím beginning to think you say them after each other because it just sounds so good as it comes off the keyboards.

    Hendo has been a great servant these last few years. But an average player for much of his time here.

    Keita or better turns up and performs and he is back to squad player. The fact he backed himself to up his game ( and he needed to ) and did it IS testimony to his quality though. Not blessed with top technique he is a player who managers love - and has become a very good captain.

    Those who compare him to Gerrard are bat shit Crazy. One of the best players to ever wear the shirt with a player who is arguably the weakest technician in the current squad.

    He has done brilliant these last few years in a team flush with quality and the best manager in the game. Has to be said though even our best recent form came without him.

    Gerrard captaining this side and we win far more than 2 titles!

    The end
    Itís not one or the other though. Both players have made tremendous contributions to the club. Gerrard obviously by far the more naturally gifted player.
    Henderson is the engine of this team. Klopp be dropping him for nobody. Everything we do stems from his prompting.

    Hard to disagree with this.

    Balanced and well put. But that was not the case when Keita came in. This is the point Skye is making.

    Henderson is Kloppís voice on the pitch, driving the team forward. Keita?? Do me a favour, he canít kick a ball straight without injuring himself ffs.
    Henderson has been absolutely integral to our success under Klopp. The difference between his presence on the pitch and Gerrardís is that Henderson helps others around him perform better whereas when Gerrard was playing it had a tendency to have players feel they could leave it to him. Some of them shrank in his presence on the pitch, performing better when he wasnít there. Ok not with genuine class players like Suarez and Torres but several others for sure.
    Under Hendersonís captaincy it is the opposite.

    No - Jurgen Klopp is a different breed of manager Miller.

    Put Hendo in Rafaís 2005 teamÖ

    then take out Stevie GÖ

    Öthen try to reach the CL final twice in 3 seasons.

    People often confuse a teams success with one player. If there is one player making that difference it absolutely is not Henderson - behave - it was Steven Gerrard.

    EDIT: Easy enough debating the two as captains - but itís pie in the sky - both are captains for 2 very different managers.

    Gerrard was a different breed entirely. Not the most vocal and perhaps not as selfless but ask any top side in world football which captain they would take and you know who they want.

    I think coaches in Keita's past .gave him good advice which he never listened too, "i dont kick a football it will break your foot"

    Also Miller is confusing Keita the reality with what Klopp thought he was getting.

    Much confusion here

    Mentioning Keita's injury record. does anyone know what it was like when he played Germany?? If he was fit most of the time.I find it strange how hes had so many injuries with us.
