Jordan Henderson Really Is A Breath Of Fresh Air For England

Jordan Henderson has been exceptional for Sunderland this season and fully deserves his place in the England team.  He played a massive role in our sensational win against Chelsea on Saturday.

It's good that somebody like Henderson has made his way into the England team.  The only shame is that thug Andy Carroll has, for whatever reason, made it in at the same time, despite being charged with assaulting his ex girlfriend.

There is a great interview with/ profile of Jordan Henderson in this morning's Independent, here:


My favourite paragraph, at a time when all the rent-a-quotes in the national (otherwise known as London and Manchester) press are desperately trying to talk up the chances of Henderson moving to Man Utd, Man City or Chelsea.  Henderson has this to say:

The man of the moment was at England's hotel in Hertfordshire yesterday, an unassuming new boy in the squad whose accent immediately locates him. He is Sunderland born and bred and has been at the club since he was seven years old. With that in mind, was there ever a chance he might go elsewhere? "No. My dad is a Sunderland fan, all my friends are Sunderland fans and I am a Sunderland fan. I got asked to go on a trial when I was seven and I have been ever since.

I think the Southern based press might find that Henderson has more loyalty than the average footballer.  Henderson has a massive future both for Sunderland and England.
