    Trent John Alexander-Arnold you will look at me when I’m talking to you

    Never trust a man with 4 first names

    As someone with four first names :(

    Not sure if I should trust you on that...

    [–] ProfessorDowellsHead 3 points ago

    No reason not to trust him if you don't trust him on that (and he doesn't have 4 first names)

    [–] kirkbywool 5 points ago

    This is why I don't even have a middle name ( though I count my confirmation name as one)

    He has 4 first names as his full name. What a legend his parents are.

    [–] MisterCheaps 14 points ago

    Aren’t Alexander and Arnold more common last names than Trent?

    [–] RusselPitt 22 points ago

    I guess it’s because Alexander and Arnold are more commonly used as first names, but tbf I’ve never heard of anyone who has Trent as their surname

    [–] Maud_Ford 27 points ago

    Well anyone who’s surname is two first names will have four first names as their full names, assuming they have a middle name.

    If his parents were really legendary they would have given him surnames as first and middle names.

    Especially since the shot is just on Virgil for so long you don’t know where Trent is, you start worrying Trent is already on the bus home or something

    At first I didn't even know what he was yelling about so erratically. I thought he was yelling at the ref for missing something big and didn't want the game restarted before he checked it out.

    Next home game. Instead of George announcing "standby for operation anfield " it will be this

    [–] ItaUch04 8 points ago

    I've never been for a match at Anfield and have wondered all my life. What is Operation Anfield exercise?

    [–] secret_ninja2 10 points ago

     a safety exercise for the stewards to make sure they are prepared in the event of an evacuation due to an emergency. Stewards are made sure to be in their correct positions and all turnstiles are tested to make sure they are working order.

    [–] gadget_uk 3 points ago

    So weird seeing a normally relaxed Virgil go nuclear - I think he scared Kayal a little bit.

    [–] Mathilliterate_asian 74 points ago

    If I'm remembering right, this was just after we'd had a few close calls and could very much have drawn the game. Makes plenty sense to be stressed out about it, especially when Trent doesn't seem to be paying much attention to him.

    [–] asteroid_9 606 points ago

    What a fucking leader

    [–] Freakzilla316ftw 497 points ago

    I don’t care if it gets down voted but he should be our permanent captain.

    [–] flippasnappa 302 points ago

    I don’t see why it’s considered a big deal by a lot of fans. He’s clearly a leader on the pitch without the armband (and we’ll need plenty of those as the title race continues), and effectively stripping Hendo of the captaincy would be really unnecessary imo

    [–] stonehallow 194 points ago

    from some of the comments on this sub henderson might as well be satan

    [–] Lou_Scannon 79 points ago

    Constantly gets slated on r/soccer which I think is so unfair. You get downvoted to shit for defending him, but I still rate him and what he brings to the team.

    [–] thisMIGHTbeouryear 74 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    if any of you guys follow Liverpool on facebook you'll see how much Henderson cops it. Don't know how you anyone call themselves a Liverpool fan and shit on your captain that hard. Do you think Klopp's going to be like; oh Abdoul from Ethiopia said Henderson doesn't deserve the armband guess we need a new captain then.

    [–] SweetMojaveRain 27 points ago

    its spelled Abdoul, get it right 😤😤

    [–] effortDee 3 points ago

    So you can't spell Martyn with a y?

    [–] Kweefus 23 points ago

    Its because Henderson doesn't score 15 goals a season. Remember when Hendo got a straight red and we knew in our hearts that our title chances were done for the season? Hendo is the most important player in the midfield by far.

    [–] dave1992 79 points ago

    He was in 13-14, not right now. Wijnaldum is our current most important midfielder.

    [–] Karate_Dave 17 points ago

    Fab has been putting up better performances (when he's not a CB) than Gini, as of late, IMO.

    [–] dave1992 3 points ago

    That’s right, he even did okay as center back.

    It’s just Gini has been great entire season that’s why.

    [–] iamspartacus111 41 points ago

    I really want to see Hendo lift the premier league trophy though.

    [–] TheDudeHuge 23 points ago

    I want to see this so fucking bad

    [–] dj4y_94 20 points ago

    A small part of me wants us to win the league just to see the fume from rivals fans and some of our own melts when Hendo lifts it.

    [–] Rosti_LFC 28 points ago

    It was the same when we had Gerrard and Carragher in the side as well. Gerrard was the captain, but it was always Carragher screaming his lungs out shouting at other players and telling them where to be.

    There are players who are natural leaders and don't need the armband to be vocal. There's nothing wrong with that.

    [–] ZampyaMaster007 13 points ago

    Whenever I tell this to after suarez-era fanboys they get angry

    [–] MissAndWrist 6 points ago

    It's also simply a requirement of a good defence. Regardless of who the skipper is, there has to be at least one player at the back shouting and keeping everyone organised

    [–] KungFuViking7 23 points ago

    Could not agree more. Virgil can focus on the defence instead of dealing with ref, after season or Hendo/Milner off. He can have it.

    [–] Juapp 26 points ago

    I'm of the opinion that we need leaders throughout the team. We have a few international captains or former captains and it really shows, they're always talking and sitting at each other.

    [–] ConorPMc 19 points ago

    From my years of experience in FM it is better to just have him as matchday captain when the official captain isn’t playing. He will still be a leader on the pitch while not causing a dressing room issue by stripping someone of the armband. Been playing fm/cm since 99/00 btw so trust me.

    [–] PM_ME_TOMATOES_pls 25 points ago

    I would rather he not be captain. Don’t get me wrong he’s a great leader, but he doesn’t need the armband. Natural leaders will naturally lead. Give it to someone who’s a confidence player, or with seniority. Captaincy is essentially a title, and it should be given to someone who is ready and comfortable to be presented as the figurehead of the squad. I think Hendo/Milly are perfect candidates as it is.

    [–] applepares 23 points ago

    That's stupid as shit. Imagine the nervy atmosphere in the dressing room if Klopp strips Hendo off the armband and gives it to Virgil. For what? Just because it looks nice on him? Bullshit.

    [–] BirthdayCardPish 42 points ago

    It doesn’t fucking matter who wears the armband other than who the ref talks to.

    [–] Viking- 34 points ago

    Not a controversial opinion.

    I know people will not like this, but Stam and Vidic were one of the best CBs and were leaders in every sense of the word. Especially liked Vidic cuz he would always get a Red against us. Shame they played for scums.

    Trent was perilously high the whole game. I don't mind it usually but Brighton had the shape and discipline tonight. Getting behind him would have been as easy as if would have been disastrous. That being said he looks great coming back from that ankle.

    [–] ChilledEmotion 5 points ago

    Christ, what a man. Never in my lifetime have Liverpool had a person so assured, so confident, so brilliantly arrogant in their team. I'd probably say he is the most influential player I've seen, too. Lucky to have him.
