Liverpool Fans Slaughtering Jordan Henderson Tonight – And He’s Not Even Playing

Liverpool supporters watched their team easily swat aside Spartak Moscow at Anfield tonight, but Jordan Henderson has been taking a lot of flak – without even kicking a ball.

Has Henderson really been that bad this season? Does he really deserve this kind of stick? And are Liverpool a lot better without him?
