chicken soup for liverpudlian souls (sorry for the plagiarism)

Was reading this post earlier, and it prompted me to blog something. If you're a Liverpool fan, you'd be stupid to miss such great writing.

Being a Liverpool FC fan myself, it hurts to see the situation now, and Stevie G's problem ain't helping. If he thinks he can achieve more with another team, then there's no point holding him back. No player is bigger than the club. Gerrard's a player I admire, but Liverpool is the team I support, with or without Steven Gerrard. Great players come and go, but there's only one Liverpool FC. Think Robbie Fowler, Kevin Keegan, Kenny Dalglish, Steve Mcmanaman, Michael Owen, John Barnes, Ian Rush. All great players, all history. Great players replaced with great players. Of course, I'd really love to see Gerrard stay and win trophies with Liverpool. Imagine in 50 years time, we may be sitting around boasting about how Gerrard's decision to stay now sparked the glorious revolution and golden era of Liverpool FC, and wondering what would've happened if he had left back then.

I would really love to see Steven Gerrard becoming to Liverpool what Franco Baresi is to AC Milan...a Kop Legend.

as a man utd fan, i would love to see gerard playing for any other team (especially for man utd) coz he's a bloody good player... but as a football fanatic, there is nothing better for the sport other than to have gerard fighting it out in a liverpool jersey... with ppl like abramovich coming in, thinking he could buy his way to success, it would be nice to see some loyalty left in the players...

so let's stop the money talk and let the foot do the work. i predict liverpool 2-1 chelsea in tonight's carling cup, with gerrard and baros scoring and a horrible blunder by dudek to keep the blues in the match (i have to be realistic, right?)
