You're allowed to have your opinion here bud, but if you are going to sit on a high horse and say "mine is better than yours" people are not going to discuss with you. You attack, but ask others to not attack you and play victim. You dissent, but then get upset when others disagree with what you say. You're just difficult. I edited the length of your post for a particular reason,It's funny this convo... a bit surreal even. I remember when I originally signed up here, telling people he wasnt right for the midfield. No-one would have it then. Was pretty much thrown out... wasn't an option for discussion. Fast forward a couple of years and that opinion was universal.
Now, i believe anyway, people have got better-round syndrom
Make no mistake, whatever your feelings are on these two players, they're not proper replacement if someone like keita, fabinho or ox is out injured. Where keitas ability to turn and face play, or transition from defence to attack might mitigate to some degree fabinho being out, or Chamberlain s ability to break lines and transition through midfield to attack might mitigate keitas absence, neither Henderson or Milner can provide those two things specifically and our midfield becomes static and heavily reliant on the fullbacks to provide creativity.
1) To highlight the mentality you have that we are all out to get you because you don't rate Henderson. We are not, you don't have to rate him, just don't get mad if others do.
2) We fully rely on our fullbacks to create in our system. Tactically, we set up like that. Our wingers play inverted and fill pockets of space between narrowing the defense creating space for fullbacks to move up the field and create chances from dangerous angles. Our midfield is literally there to win the ball back after we lose it during our "gegenpress." I am far from the most tactically inclined person on this site; however, like Pep's team, we have a clear identity on how we play.
