Who is Steven Gerrard?

There’s Only One Stevie G!
For his biggest fans, he’s the embodiment of Roy of the Rovers
For his fiercest critics, he held back his hometown club from winning a much-needed Premier League title
One thing is for sure, though; Steven George Gerrard, born 30th May 1980 in Whiston, England, is one of the greatest players to ever wear the Liverpool red or the white of England
Having played and captained his hometown club and his boyhood heroes from a young age and through the majority of his career, Gerrard lived the dream
To have such a catalogue of fantastic events and big games where he helped his club win major honours, though, is special
Despite nearly losing a toe when he was younger by kicking a garden fork by accident, a young Gerrard soon passed through the Liverpool ranks and became one of the most naturally talented players of his generation
Making his debut on 29th November 1998, he made a good impression and from then on was around the club for some time
By May 2000, he’d played for England seniors and was beginning to become one of the most rated players of an era that had been dominated by his hated rivals, Manchester United
In fact, Alex Ferguson tried numerous times to sign him, but his love for the Reds meant he never left.
Even when he did nearly leave, to go to Chelsea in London, he changed his mind and continued to wear the Red until 2015, when he left and joined LA Galaxy.
Growing up, though, his career was blighted by injury in his back and his groin
Back problems came from a quick growth spirt that seen him exceed 6ft in a very short space of time
He missed the 2002 World Cup due to these injury issues
However, it was not enough to hold him back
In 2003, he was appointed the captain of Liverpool, replacing Sami Hyppia, and soon grew into the role and used it as a way to help mature and grow on and off the pitch as a man
That shone through, as he took his game to a new level under Gerard Houllier, stepping out of the shadows of a number of players and establishing himself as a world-class young talent in his own right.
He first captained his country, too, in 2004, and that continued many times across his career
His leadership, never-say-die attitude and ability to keep going when others would admit defeat has seen him leave an almost eternal mark on his beloved club
Arguably his best season, though came in 2004-05, his first season under Spaniard Rafael Benitez
The two would enjoy a hot/cold relationship, but Benitez got the best out of Gerrard
This was shown when he came third in the Ballon D’Or trophy in 2005, following incredible displays that took an unfancied (and frankly average) Liverpool side from the brink of a Group Stages exit to the Final in Istanbul overcoming the same Chelsea side he would nearly sign for in the summer beforehand
At 3-0 down at half-time against one of the finest AC Milan sides in history, it felt over
Liverpool were destroyed across 45 minutes by a better team, however, in a whirlwind second half Gerrard scored a bullet header and then won a penalty to put the club in a position to rally from 3-0 to 3-3
Eventually, they held on, won the Champions League on penalties, and became heroes as the club managed to lift its fifth Champions League trophy
The Legend Continues
A player of exceptional talent, drive and physicality, he soon formed the best partnership of his career when Spanish forward Fernando Torres signed
The duo were dynamic, and injuries alone stopped them from being able to push Liverpool to win that much-needed League title in 2008-09, pipped at the end by Manchester United
From the amazing 2006 FA Cup Final, where he scored a tremendous 30-yard drive in the last moments to take the game to extra time and eventually win the Cup on penalties
To the heartbreak of league championships and Champions League final losses, Gerrard has seen it all
His final two seasons at Liverpool were excellent summaries of the highs and lows he suffered
In 2013/14, he played a major role in helping the lethal Sturridge, Suarez and Sterling partnership take the Reds to the brink of the title
A fateful slip near half-time, though, seen Gerrard give Demba Ba possession, and the Senegal striker tucked home to bring about the end of the title charge
His final season in Red was a disaster, a Group Stage exit from the Champions League, being dropped for big games and then seeing the club lose out to Aston Villa in the FA Cup semi-finals was a bitter blow to take
He moved on to play for LA Galaxy briefly before hanging up his boots and calling time on one of the most amazing careers of a player of his generation
Despite never winning the League for his beloved Reds, a Champions League, UEFA Cup, UEFA Super Cup, 3 League Cups and 2 FA Cups is a fine trophy haul
He is a major part of the reason why, despite falling behind the ‘new elite’ of the 90s and 00s, that Liverpool were still able to maintain trophy-winning form despite having far less elite squads
In total, Gerrard played 710 games in the red of Liverpool, scoring 186 goals and making sure that he keeps his place in the history books of his club
A further 114 games came playing for England, too, making him a rare centurion at international level
A stellar career that is loaded with highs and lows, Gerrard has left a mark on the game that only a few players before his time were capable of
For many, he is the very epitome of a local kid who managed to live the dream of playing for his local club
To do so over 700 times, and hold the awards and accolades he has, is something that may never be topped in the modern era
