How do you solve a problem like Jordan Henderson?

On Liverpool blogs across the web many paragraphs have been devoted to discussing the player that Jordan Henderson has blossomed into this season but regardless of how much everyone agrees on his improvement, his best position for the team is still a matter that needs to be discussed. This season he’s played as a shuttling wide midfielder, a right attacking midfielder and in the centre of the park but it remains to be seen where he’s most effective. Henderson’s most …

Liverpool's Most Influential Player So Far This Season

The question of who has been Liverpool's most influential player so far this season would be a tough one to answer with many players stepping up to the mark and keeping us in the top four. The most influential player doesn't necessarily have to be the one who scores the most goals or who has the most assists, but who contributes 100% to the team and gives them a kick when times are down and here is my analysis of …

Liverpool 4 Fulham 0 | Match Reaction & Stats

When Brendan Rodgers first arrived at Anfield, he did something that few managers have done before him; he met with the fans and in every interview he tried to explain his vision for Liverpool and hoped it would stick. He did this in order to educate us, to bring us on the journey as we all tried to pick ourselves up from the false dawn of Kenny Dalglish returning as the club manager. Rodgers used words like transition, pressing, tempo …

Adam, Downing & Henderson: New boys' Graduation Day due

[caption id="attachment_4728" align="aligncenter" width="465" caption="Time to step up in Red"][/caption] I might be witnessing a graduation on Sunday.  I hope to see new boys coming of age in a Red shirt. No, not our much criticised, 6 ft plus, work in progress, AC.  His time will come.

Jordan Henderson | A Central Point

Jordan Henderson | A Central Point

[caption id="attachment_3470" align="alignleft" width="150"] Henderson[/caption] Jordan Henderson is something of a conundrum. To the vocal few he is a waste of money, to many more he is a player of great potential. To nobody, save perhaps the Liverpool coaching staff, he is a right winger who should be keeping Dirk Kuyt out of the side. When Liverpool paid £16M to Sunderland for Henderson's services, there was much trumpeting of the stat that only four players had created more chances than …
