So Henderson made him play worse?
Wasn't implying that, was saying Henderson was trying to play forward balls but we had no outlets, so seemed to be giving possession away, when in reality it was shown how camped we were were with no out ball

I had the impression Henderson was positioning himself far further upfield than Dec had been, even taking account of Dec's later forward surges.

Thought Henderson would add some leadership and direction at least, but he turned in a dogshit performance. The lack of outlets had been the case since early in the second half when Kane withdrew his labour.

The answer is simple, don't call up players that aren't fully match fit because when it matters it will show. Henderson didn't need to be there, fully fit with a string of games in a decent side he's decent, half fit, rusty and coming into a game like that he's not.

100% agree with you there.
