Mike Marsh: Praised Jordan Henderson for his attitude

Henderson, goalkeeper Brad Jones and Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers were all unwell prior to Sunday's 3-0 success at Loftus Road.

And Henderson was the only one of the trio to make it to the ground, where the 22-year-old played a pivotal role for an hour as the Reds cruised to victory.

"I got a phone call early in the morning from the doctor to ask if I was well," Marsh said. "He was ringing round to have a bit of a roll call and I said I was fine.

"Jordan had stayed up in his room and he would stay there during pre-match to see how he progressed.

"He told me Brad wasn't well. He was isolated in his room as well until he left on the train. There were one or two others who were unwell as well.

"Then we got to the ground. We kept Jordan in the shower room until it was absolutely necessary that he came out. We relayed any information through an open door until we actually got outside.

"Jordan was then fantastic in the game and I think he showed us just how much he wants to play for the football club.

"He was certainly under the weather and you could see that from the colour of his face - he was pasty white. He lasted an hour and for that hour, I thought he was outstanding."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
