Steven Gerrard is a name and player you’d most readily associate with Major League Soccer’s, LA Galaxy. However, there’s a small section of Merseysiders who remember the former England international, fondly.
LA Galaxy legend Steven Gerrard has retired after a 19-year career. He will be missed!
During his brief spell with the Reds, Gerrard found a way into the hearts of Liverpool fanbase. And this was despite the club having more iconic names representing them during Gerrard’s time at Anfield – Igor Biscan, Antonio Nunez and Peter Gulacsi, for example – but Stevie G remains a firm fan favourite.
And you can understand why, with Gerrard making up for what he lacks in footballing ability, with his kind, personable and approachable manner off the field; fans love having someone they can relate to.
The below footage of Gerrard, will gently warm the heart of even the most miserable of people. And it’s refreshing to see a footballer, of immense talent, status and wealth, not forget how important he is to the youth of today, and come across in a natural, emotional and friendly manner.
Six things that show it is Liverpool’s title to lose
Jurgen Klopp is a god among men, and that's just a fact.
The German saviour has transformed this Liverpool side into a team capable of going all the way, and his charisma that goes alongside it has brought joy to the masses at Anfield. This man is the catalyst. Period.
Yes he's small, yes he has his off moments - but when Coutinho is on form he makes everyone else look like Homer Simpson on a treadmill.
So, he's small, who gives a flying fuck. His agility, finishing and all-round contribution makes the Brazilian vital to this title push.
This is not supposed to be Liverpool's year at all; Manchester City and Chelsea appeared to be well on track to smash through the rest of the league like bulls in a china shop, but that's not how things work in the most competitive league in the world.
Relax, have a cup of tea, then storm this thing.
Liverpool Football Club have suddenly grown Godzilla-sized bollocks in the last few weeks, with a series of morale boosting results giving them that aura of self belief and confidence.
They just need to keep riding that glorious wave of momentum all the way through to May. Easier said than done, but still.
Strength in Depth
Couts, Firmino, Mane and Lallana - what more could you want you greedy bastards. Oh yeah, the likes of Sturridge, Origi and Wijnaldum on the bench and more.
There's no end to the talent on this squad and it's not going away any time soon. Anfield is stocked up to the brim, folks.
No midweek trips to the middle of nowhere in mainland Russia, no long journeys back from some shit hole in Bulgaria - nothing. There is no European competition for Liverpool to fail in spectacularly this year, so logically speaking they have one up on the rest of their competitors. Well, shit, apart from Chelsea.
