It’s not just what happened on the field. He is a great leader on and off the field and that has been a major factor

Eh? So if a player was injured for the whole season, but cajoling his team from the sideline, he could still be in the running for POTY?  :o

Is it not alot of journalists voting for it??

I'd pay more attention to the PFA players player of the year.

You're not 'on' the field if you're injured for the whole season surely

Yes but my point was, what he does off the field has no bearing on an award like this.

Hendo - what a legend - head and shoulders above the rest of the league  :)

You may contact FWA and tell them.

FWA chair, Carrie Brown, said: “Leadership is intangible and often unquantifiable unless it is inarguable. Jordan Henderson is both the ultimate professional and now a bona fide Liverpool legend. 

“Jordan is a player his team-mates look to on the pitch and who his rivals look up to off it. The voting criteria for the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year is one who leads by precept and example and in this country’s darkest moment, Jordan, unprompted, personally rallied club captains to establish #PlayersTogether. 

“Millions of pounds have been raised for the NHS and significantly #PlayersTogether is now an established collective power base for players to engage in campaigns, none more so evident in the ongoing and powerful anti-racism #BlackLivesMatter campaign. He is a truly worthy winner of our award.”

I think Liverpool fans are very good at understanding great players, they’ve had so many over the years.

Henderson isn’t one and deep down they know that, a leader? Possibly, creative? Definitely not. Hard working? Definitely. Nice guy? Comes across very well.

Surprised he didn’t have the under amour on with that pic above.
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

He certainly doesn’t have the flair or finesse of a Gerrard or Dalglish. But I’ll tell you something, you are no dud if you captain a team to a Premier League title after a 30 year void. He must be doing something right. The sum of his parts may not be as much as others, but by god he is an exceptional captain and integral part of that team’s success. It can’t be denied. De Byrne for eg. is a technically better footballer. But his team finished 20 points behind Liverpool.

This year they did but City have certainly dominated the league for years. Reminds of Noble from West Ham

Could anyone copy and paste the independent article about all the players Liverpool bought since they last won the league. 1.6 billion it cost

You talk about this team, both teams haven’t changed really, City list a few through injury I suppose...
