Friends Of Liverpool

Lets face it, we haven’t been much good lately, is it nine draws in a row or some mad, sad figure like that?

Ninth in the League after ten games despite a new Manager on board, nothing seems to have changed. This Liverpool Phoenix hasn’t risen from the Ashes just yet.

Blame The Owners:
No, they have spent £300 million on players alone since they took over.

Blame The Manager:
We did and Rodgers got shafted after a poor start to this Season to be replaced by Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp who has drawn his first few games in charge of Liverpool.

Blame The Players:
Yes, some stand-out as being culpable, Joe Allen,  Origi, Moreno and Milner have by and large, failed to do the business.

Blame Injuries:
Yes, Sturridge with his glass legs are now a serious worry as he misses out game after game.
Danny Ings and Gomez rupturing their knee-joints are a huge loss.

But the biggest loss of all is Captain Jordan Henderson, out injured since September with an injured heel, then to suffer a broken metatarsal in his foot has been a big blow both to him and the team.

We miss his Leader-by-example, all guns-blazing approach in the side.

He drives players on, he creates chances, he makes tackles, he is a winner, a player Liverpool clearly miss.

Almost sold to Fulham for £5 million two years ago by Brendan Rodgers, Jordan Henderson, who refused to leave, is now vital to this Liverpool side.

Let us hope he will be fit again after the November International break, we need him badly.
