    Highest goals and assists total of our entire squad last year, from central midfield, and you guys reckon he's the problem?

    He's not really claiming he's at a particular standard, he saying the claims that he's "bang average" most of the time, are nonsense. Which they are. Statistically he's as influential as any midfielder in the country in his position, there's certainly not many I can think of who weigh in with as many assists and he keeps getting a few goals.

    Also this idea that we had "two or three magic players", well we had maybe two with Rafa in Torres & Gerrard, and we've had three more recently under Rodgers, with Suarez, Sturridge and Coutinho.

    We still have Coutinho, Benteke will get important goals, we still have Sturridge, Firmino is potentially a match winner. I think overall we're probably as well balanced as we were in the season before last, perhaps even more so, without the 30 goal a season player (which are difficult to come by), but we certainly look like we can spread the burden of goals a bit more between a few players.

    He makes me disproportionately angry. Is there some sort of post-modern ironic or satirical element I'm missing? This sort of abominable shite puts me off the internet as a whole.

    Horrenderson.

    Loved it when he was made captain. Could just imagine the steam coming out the ears of some cunt at News International.

    No, I don't reckon he's a problem. There is a middle ground on this. He doesn't have to be our next superstar.

    He's a decent player and adds to the team, but he's not up there with the likes of our previous captains, and is unlikely to ever be that standard.

    No ones is saying he's the new Steven Gerrard, but he's by far the best player for the job.

    Haha, he's either a master troll or completely oblivious to how awful he is, I hope the latter, it makes me cry with laughter how bad it is, so much cringe.

    Which is depressing when you consider his talent compared to our previous captains...

    His talent in what way? Gerrard was hit and miss as a captain, he drove the team as a player when at his best, as a captain he didn't always know how to fire players up. Everyone who's spoken about Henderson say he has the respect of the dressing room and he's the perfect candidate because players look up to him, his relative talent to someone like Gerrard should be irrelevant. It's not the quality of the player that dictates what effect they will have in terms of leadership.

    I'm not really sure what point you're trying to make.

    That having Henderson as our captain is a little depressing. I've made the point a few times, I'm not really sure how to explain it any other way. You look at the list of club captains we have, and he stands out like a sore thumb.

    As regards people speaking highly of him, everyone always speaks highly of the incumbent, whether they're managers, captains or players, that's just what they do. He could well be great, but I wouldn't bank on his peers word on it. I don't really think anyone looks up to him, in the same way as they did Gerrard, but maybe that's a good thing. At the end of the way, it'll be the performances that prove it, and hopefully he'll live up to the pressure.

    It reminds me of that scene in King of Comedy when Rupert Pupkin is trying to record his routine in his bedroom without his mum overhearing him.

    You're making a correlation between the quality of player and quality of captain, I'm saying it's not really relevant. You've more or less said as much yourself, yet still continue to make the same point. We haven't picked him because he's our best player, so pointing to it as a sign of our lack of quality is incorrect.

    We've picked him because he's a professional lad who has the ethics of the clubs past at heart, in that he works hard to improve and he shows clear passion for the club and wearing the shirt.
