Steven Gerrard came to Anfield since he was 8 years old, made his debut when he was 18 and was a loyal servant of the club for 17 years. To imagine Liverpool without him seemed impossible. No matter which club you support, if you are a true ‘Football’ fan, you have to respect him and his dedication. Those pin point passes, long range shots that almost tore the net open, and the last minute rescues that only he could inspire are sorely missed. The Red ship sails without its true captain. Sure, there are new leaders but none can replace the man born and bred of Liverpool, the man who dreams of being buried at Anfield itself. The Merseyside hero who bowed out as a hero, a legend, a talisman.
