Jordan Henderson put in his best performance for Liverpool so far on Saturday against Bolton. Some fans were already getting on Henderson’s back but I hope he has quickly silenced them after his great performance on Saturday where he also got his first goal for Liverpool.

It is amazing what one goal can do to a player, after the goal, Henderson’s confidence seemed to grow as he was stroking the passes in midfield. I am not too sure if Henderson’s position is out on the right in midfield or he should be playing a more central role. But for now he must be glad that he is getting game time.

It will be interesting to see what will happen to Henderson when Gerrard is fit again. It is likely that Gerrard will replace Henderson in the side but our very own captain will find it hard to displace Hendo right now.

After the match Henderson told us how happy he was.”Scoring for Liverpool, especially your first goal, means a lot – you could see that from my celebration. But the main thing was the team performance. I thought we were brilliant throughout the game.

“I’ve worked hard and got my head down but I think I can do a lot better, I think there’s still a lot more to come. I just need to focus on what I need to do, keep working hard in training and hopefully that will come through on the pitch like it did today.”

    I knew that he is a outstanding player just wanted backing and dilgish vary rightly stood behind him. It is a matter of time you will see him as a second gerrald.

    Henderson was MotM against Bolton no question. Unfortunately, Suarez fever has caught hold on and he seems to get vote irrespective of how he plays. Don’t get me wrong, Suarez played well like everyone else but Henderson’s performance shone through.

    I, for one, think he was mediocre at best. He was by far our worst midfield player, always looking for the obvious pass (sideways and backways mostly). If he hadn’t sent Suarez clear with that easiest of through ball, it’d be a bit too much. His defense abilities are practically non-existant. He did improve, that’s a fact. But he still doesn’t know what to do with the ball. Maybe in a few games, months or years. Let’s all hope. But stop this MOtM nonsense please. It’ll come back to back us in the ass against a solider midfield or leftback.
