With reports coming in that the two clubs have agreed a fee for Jordan Henderson I think its time someone said a few positive words about what a great signing he is .
Firstly, Henderson’s first experience at Liverpool will be under Kenny Dalglish, who has known nothing but success at the club, so there will be no under performing attitude that needs changing.
Henderson marks the beginning of the “New Broom Sweeping Clean” the dead wood & malingerers who have been allowed to under perform at our club since Roy Evans left.
At 20 years old Henderson is fantastically talented & is easily as good as the very similar Joe Cole at his very best and it is very likely that Henderson’s arrival will now signal Cole’s departure.
Tactical excellence doesn’t come cheap but you have to be a quick thinker, technically excellent and tactically razor sharp to play at Liverpool and you can double those demands in a Kenny Dalglish Liverpool side.
Even the most doubtful among you can not deny that Henderson is all of those things and I can only imagine how well he is going to flourish within the attacking tactics of Dalglish who primarily lets defenders defend while his attackers attack. Henderson, as the world will see in this summers U21 tournament is technically and physically as good as anything Europe has to offer at his age.
£20million is a lot of money to us men on the street but in the world of Football it is the equivalent of the price of a Mars Bar or a packet of Walkers Cheese And Onion .
Ramires, a complete disaster of Poulsen proportions at Chelsea last season cost £16million while the workmanlike Millner cost Man City £25million, at only £20 million we have got a bargain in the already Premier League experienced Henderson and a very clear signal from Kenny that he is going for the Leagues throat next season with “ATTACK !! ATTACK !! ATTACK !! ” in mind.

Aye , hes a fine player young Henderson , a great signing .
Well done Kenny .
Good piece of business by Kenny.
The manager is working to get out the dead wood from the Club as He brings in young fresh talent in order to play Liverpool’s attacking football.
Now Charlie Adam will be the next business for the Club.
It will be a busy summer.
“at only £20 million we have got a bargain”
I think you’ll find since Liverpool had put a value of £7m on Ngog, who’s part of this transfer deal going in the other direction, we’ve actually got Henderson for £13m
N’Gog moving the other direction isnt a part of the deal but if he does agree terms with Sunderland then his fee will be deducted from what we have to pay for Henderson or any other player we may or may not sign from them this summer .
If Henderson was a less talented 20 year old Mexican or Italian with 100 games in English football under his belt we would probably be talking about £40 million after all the hype about him had settled , so anything under that is a bargain & we got him for only £20 million as things stand right now at this moment in time . I would have paid £30 million for him in todays market , no questions asked .
He is a great signing that will instantly be challenging for a regular first role on the right hand side of our midfield & giving us strong options through the middle if Gerrard isnt available .
If Sneijder is sold for 30mil we will once again look clueless in the transfer marker. We should be chasing the Sneijders and the Agueros of the world.. not a guy who was not even the top player at a bottom table club…35mil for Carroll and now 20mil for this guy! 55mil for a first 11 striker and midfielder with 14 goals between them last year.. thats just dumb business… Buying british will keep us mid table… I really hope our next signing is better than this.
I can understand the arguement of buying english players…but the names liverpool is chasing are simply average.I am definetly not looking forward to the new season if this buy is a sign of what’s to come. I’m so disappointed. But I will gladly hold my hand up if proven wrong. YNWA
Andy Carroll was injured for half a season & in the half he did play in he scored 11 goals !
Jordan Henderson has been Sunderlands Young Player Of the Year for 2 seasons in a row & hasnt even kicked a ball for us yet & here you are talking shit about him !???
Fuck you & Fuck the team you really support because you sure as hell arent a LFC supporter !
So who will we look foolish to on the last day of the season when we are waiting on the final whistle to blow on our first Championship season since 1990 ?
Even if Snidjer gets sold for 50p & a loaf of bread who will we look clueless to ?
Henderson was 1 year into a 5 year contract at Sunderland meaning we had to compensate them for 4 years service of one of their top players !
How long has Snider who has never kicked a ball in England or Aguero who has never even played in the rain let alone so much has set foot in England & trained on a wet cold Wednesday morning in December with the hail stones cutting him to the bone every time he stops moving for more than 5 seconds , how long have they got on their contracts ?
You are a clueless muppet & I suspect you go to the hairdressers to catch up on the football news & cant hold yer own in a slanging match with those limp wristed gossips so ya come home instead & bitch & complain about yer own players on here instead , if indeed you arent some scumbag fan of another club in here to piss on our parade ?
So either way …
Fuck off outa here & take yer fashion victim anti LFC comments with you !
We don’t want you or yer like & we don’t need you or yer like .
i really hope i will be proven wrong but these deals (caroll and henerson) are disheartening… especially considering someone is gonna get Nzogbia for less.. not looking forward to next season no more
I really hope you admit you are a Man Utd fan in disguise .
Good on ya mate for telling it how it is. So many trolls on the Internetz most are farking clueless. They just read headlines and have no idea of the back story of players etc. And the real tactics involved with football. King Kenny knows what he is doing, Not many managers can claim to have won a League cup as player/manager….
We can’t forget Steve Clarke either he has been a great help to us.
True that not many players who have won the league have gone on to win it as a manager & its true that less again have managed to win it as a Player/Manager like he did on 3 occasions while at Liverpool but none have won it as a Player/Manager at one club then gone to another club & won it for them too .
Only 3 managers in the entire history of the game have won the English League for two clubs .
Kenny is the only one of them that is still alive .
Nicely said. ‘Walkers Cheese & Onion’ classic!
