That is the question.

As captain Hendo will have lifted

The CL
EURO SUPER CUP
WORLD CLUB CUP
PREMIER LEAGUE


Gerrard failed to lead us to the Prem.

so in terms of trophies and leading us to Victory does Hendo surpass Gerrard?

Another pointless thread. For years, Gerrard strapped this team on his back and won games single handedly. We never invested in more than one world class player at a time to complement him. It's sad that he had to play through the Hicks and Gillet days - as well as a string of poor managers. Hendo is fantastic but a completely different type of player - and with a far better supporting cast.

Yes we woudln´t have won anything if Hendo was at that time playing instead of Gerrard. How would Hendo have scored that goal in the cup final against West Ham just to name one goal.

That is a load of rubbish.
Gerrard was supported with plenty of world class players.

Alonso, Mascherano are far better than any of our current midfielders. Torres would easily get in our front 3, Carra - vast improvement on any of VVD partners.

Reina in his prime just as good as Allison.

That's without mentioning he played with Suarez, Sterling and Sturridge.

what are you smoking?

No. Hendo has a much better team around him than Gerrard ever did.

Agree, We often had 2 or 3 top quality (World Class) players, but then there was a massive drop off to the rest of the team.

Gerrard would be a star in the current team, supplying passes to the front 3 and breaking from MF scoring goals, Henderson would not raise the teams Gerrard was in, he's a very good player, but he's a good team player, he cannot really raise a team a level n his own or score a winner from 30 yards, and that's not knocking Henderson, he's an excellent player.

I think Henderson is a better captain though, he seems to have a better connection with his team mates, he trusts them and they have bonded as a team, most of Gerrard's team mates looked up to him as a hero and just used to give him the ball as soon as they could, so the pressure would be on Gerrard to do something special and win the game on his own, which made us a weaker team overall.

Henderson the better captain of the two for me. Gerrard obviously the better player. But man management Henderson has the X factor

We are lucky to have been captained by both.

What does a 'better' captain entail?

Henderson's immense at the moment, but I bet SG watches on with envy at playing with these players, under Klopp.
Hendo's become a great captain and will win more than Stevie ever did, but he'll never be the same player. Not that either will mind.
