Forgot about that.
Still not convinced we've got a definite reason as to why he was hyped up more than Colback. Henderson doesn't have anything in his locker that suggests he is top class - he's not really that quick, isn't skillful and isn't imposing, like a Gerrard or Lampard type of midfielder. He rarely scores, goes missing in big games and his range of passing does not come close to that of Colback's.
Don't get me wrong - I think Jordan is a decent player with a bright future, but he was hyped up so much that he ended up in the England squad and as a result we received big money for an average player.
