Steven Gerrard Will Be Greatly Missed- The End Of An Era

Steven Gerrard was one of the best footballers to grace the English Premier League. He was probably not the best, and some might argue he was overrated (those people are stupid), but he has been the face of Liverpool for the past decade which has to mean something. Each fan will have his own unique way of remembering Stevie G; even fans of teams who lined up against him. Although he was the scourge of teams like Manchester United, it was hard to hate him. Most fans would admit that even if they didn’t like him there was a begrudging respect for him. He accomplished so much in a Liverpool shirt and without him the team probably would have had a lost less silverware. Unfortunately, there were a lot of things Steven Gerrard failed to accomplish that a player of his caliber will surely regret.

His lack of international success and his failure to win the English Premier League will lay heavy on him. Although he won’t continue to beat himself up for it, the infamous “slip” against Chelsea prevented the last chance he had to win the EPL. However, Gerrard does not deserve to be remembered that way or to be remembered as a bench player who’s presence on the starting 11 hurt the team. This man was so much more than that for Liverpool and he deserves to go out long before he becomes an aging icon kept on the team for sentimental reasons. One day hopefully he returns to Liverpool as a coach and finally gets that elusive English Premier League title. Until then we anxiously await which team he will sign with so we can continue to root for the man who gave football fans so many magical moments.

When we find ourselves in times of trouble, Stevie G runs past me,
Playing the game with wisdom, Stevie G,
And in my home, the Spion Kop, We watch him jog, right in front of me,
Spreading balls with wisdom, Stevie G,
Let it be, let it be, let it be,
Stevie G, The local lad turned hero, Stevie G
And when the jubilant Kopite people, All living in The Park agree,
That we all know the answer, Stevie G,
And although we may all be fooled, There is still a chance that we will see,
The footballing phenomenon, Stevie G,
Let it be, let it be, let it be,
Stevie G, Spreading balls with wisdom, Stevie G
And when the night is cloudy, There is still a man that we all see,
A young, committed Kopite, Stevie G,
Playing to the sound of music, Stevie G runs past me,
Playing the game with wisdom, Stevie G,
Let it be, let it be, let it be, Stevie G,
For we all know the answer, his name is Stevie G
