Steven Gerrard: Has had a stellar career so far

Steven Gerrard: Has had a stellar career so far

December 2004 - Liverpool 3 Olympiacos 1:

Stunning late goals have become a Gerrard specialty. This Euorpean night at Anfield was no exception. With Liverpool minutes away from a Champions League exit, Gerrard dragged his side through to the knockout stages, completing the scoring with a 25-yard shot. He had spent two months sidelined with a foot injury, but nothing stopped this comeback which would become the start of an historic journey. Olympiacos had led through Rivaldo, but strikes from Florent Sinama Pongolle and Neil Mellor turned the match around before Gerrard sealed victory.

May 2005 - AC Milan 3 Liverpool 3 AET, Liverpool won 3-2 on penalties:

Widely billed as the best Champions League final of the modern era, Gerrard inspired Liverpool to come from 3-0 down and later win in a penalty shootout in Istanbul. Following Paolo Maldini's first-minute opener and a Hernan Crespo brace, the Reds looked beaten at half-time. Up stepped Gerrard, however, heading in John Arne Riise's cross. He also won Liverpool the equalising penalty, earning Gerrard a man-of-the-match award.

May 2006 - Liverpool 3, West Ham United 3 AET, Liverpool won 3-1 on penalties:

Not even cramp could stop Gerrard. Twice he brought Liverpool level in the 2006 FA Cup final after falling behind to a West Ham team seen as underdogs. Moments before lashing in the goal that took the Reds through to extra time and penalties, Gerrard was struggling with injury. He recovered, however, and scored in the shootout, picking up another man-of-the-match award.

March 2009 - Liverpool 4 Real Madrid 0:

Another European occasion when Gerrard led example. A brace in a 4-0 rout left Juande Ramos embarassed by fellow Spanish coach Rafael Benitez. This and other displays in 2008-09 saw Zinedine Zidane suggest Gerrard as the best player in the world.

March 2012 - Liverpool 3 Everton 0:

On a day of milestones Gerrard hit a hat-trick against Liverpool's Merseyside rivals. A comprehensive home win courtesy of the Reds talisman at Anfield spoiled the 10-year anniversary of David Moyes. Gerrard also made sure his 400th Premier League outing was memorable.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
