Each? GOOD LORD.
I watched the full 90mins last night, couldn't watch it live and henderson was dominant, a superb performance. Took over the midfield, with lucas backing him up from deep and allen neat and tidy, keeping things moving. Those 3 worked extremely well together and took spurs' midfield out of the game.

I agree on the confidence thing but I think he's been extremely consistent this season. You can't really think about the fee; that spending spree was terrible but we now have a player who is worthy of playing for us and plays with a passion and will that can not be ignored. I'm starting to value him as highly as lucas.
