And I can only presume that 'never done it for England' translates to 'our best player in the last World Cup'
Yeah...but the last world cup....
I suspect the 120 minutes on Sunday means Gerrard won't be starting tonight, so can't be captaining the side.
Either way, I'm not sure it makes much difference as Pearce will surely only be in charge for 1 game.

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Oh no doubt, but the whole 'he's always been **** for England' is a ****ing huge myth. Fairly sure I've posted at length before about why it's a load of bollocks. Gerrard has seldom played his best position for England yet never really let England down, unless you class 'not playing like he does for Liverpool despite not being asked to play like he does for Liverpool' as letting England down.

Agree about the "never done it for England" jibe though.

Jeez, Liverpool fans are really clinging to that quality half-hour against Newcastle. It's almost as if the ensuing string of ****e performances against Citeh and Bolton and Stoke and Tottenham and United (twice) didn't even happen.
EDIT. Might be getting mixed up, not sure, think Liverpool's winner came with him off the pitch but at the time the decision was made to take him off it was a bit of a wtf. He certainly was ****e in the league game though, ****ing hell.

Tbf ****e is an overly harsh description of most of those performances, you never look at a Liverpool game and think, "that Gerrard is one dire player". He's just been totally ineffective at creating chances, scoring goals or controlling possession, with that Newcastle game a glaring exception. Parker's been miles better for two years, that much is beyond doubt.
