Liverpool's Wait Is Over

Liverpool's Wait Is Over

Finally, after what felt like an interminable wait, Liverpool Football Club are Champions of England once again. The Reds' 19th crown -- their first in the Premier League era -- is all the more impressive, given the club's recent boom and bust history; where a title challenge would inevitably be followed a season later by a calamitous collapse. The title tilt of 2001/2002 was followed by a meek 5th placed finish in 2002/2003, again owing to poor transfer market manoeuvring, …
Jordan Henderson: Liverpool's Linchpin Leader

Jordan Henderson: Liverpool's Linchpin Leader

This past week marked the nine-year anniversary of Jordan Henderson's transfer from Sunderland to Liverpool. From a skinny right-sided midfielder -- who admitted to being daunted at sharing the same midfield as Steven Gerrard -- to a colossal leader of men, Henderson has come of age at Anfield and is the ideal player to lead Jurgen Klopp's team on the pitch. It is by no means an attempt to demean the energetic 29-year-old -- anyone who wins 55 England caps …
Liverpool captain eager to ensure Reds don't become complacent in season run-in

Liverpool captain eager to ensure Reds don't become complacent in season run-in

Liverpool's Jordan Henderson is adamant the squad must be at its best to complete the task of securing the club's 19th league title over the next two months. The Reds return to action on Sunday night in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park. The game, like all remaining Premier League games this season, will be played behind closed doors. Speaking in an interview with the official LFC Magazine, Henderson spoke about his hopes for the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign. …
Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

If you polled people to ask them the words they most associate with Liverpool's midfield, the descriptions you would mostly see would be "functional, stodgy, obstinant, no-frills." While not always the easiest on the eye -- although, when asked to play progressively, they can weave pretty patterns and pass through opponents with the build-up to Roberto Firmino's goal at Manchester City last season a shining example of this -- the Reds' engine room's effectiveness cannot be disputed. With World, European …
Herculean Hendo

Herculean Hendo

If there's anyone who's had to earn appraisal and recognition the hard way, it's Jordan Henderson. Leave alone pundits and experts, the midfielder was often on the receiving end of flak from the supporters of his own club. His tenure at Liverpool FC has been rocky to say the very least. After joining the Redmen in 2011 and being made to play at an unorthodox right midfield position, he took his time to get going. Unfortunately for Liverpool FC, they …
Liverpool captain knows what The Reds have achieved so far this season is

Liverpool captain knows what The Reds have achieved so far this season is "incredible"

Jordan Henderson says that having time to look back over the 2019/20 season during lockdown allowed him to realise how "incredible" Liverpool's Premier League performance has been. It's still quite hard to believe that when football was stopped in the UK due to the coronavirus pandemic, Liverpool had played 29 league games, winning 27 and losing just once. The Reds have amassed 82 points from a possible 87. Simply out of this world. Henderson was keen to acknowledge that level …
Former Liverpool star heaps praise on current Reds captaincy team

Former Liverpool star heaps praise on current Reds captaincy team

Liverpool are in good hands with captaincy duo Jordan Henderson and James Milner according to former Anfield star Gary McAllister. McAllister spent two years at Liverpool after joining in July 2000, already aged 35. The former Leeds United star played a huge part in the treble-winning success of Gérard Houllier's 2000/01 Liverpool team. Now at Rangers as Steven Gerrard's assistant manager, McAllister spoke to Liverpoolfc.com about the ultra-professional approach of Liverpool's captain Henderson.
"You cannot speak highly enough of Jordan. …
How Would Xabi Alonso Fit Into This Liverpool Team

How Would Xabi Alonso Fit Into This Liverpool Team

While it’s practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two years… It’s always fun to fantasise, isn’t it? So with that being said, here’s a Liverpool legend might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation. Currently the Reds possess a wide choice of midfield options with multiple players all capable of performing in specific roles – in terms of depth this is the strongest that the …

"It has been a progression" - Reds captain discusses team's never-say-die attitude

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson says the team's "mentality" and "resilience" has been "massive" in the team's recent successes. Since Jürgen Klopp's arrival at Anfield, The Reds have earned a reputation as mentality monsters - a team that simply never stops believing, never gives up. Late goals and come-from-behind wins were semi-regular occurrences in the last couple of seasons. Such belief helped the team to a Champions League title in Madrid last June, followed by a record-breaking Premier League campaign in …
Old problems keep coming back to haunt Liverpool

Old problems keep coming back to haunt Liverpool

It was a night that not many Liverpool fans will want to think about for too much longer. It was a humbling and rare defeat at the hands of Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid that perhaps prematurely ended the Red's defence of their much adored European Cup. While the performance in the first leg in Spain left a lot to be desired in terms of pace and attacking threat, Klopp's men certainly dialled this up to 11 at Anfield and almost …
