gerrard1Surprise. An award was presented today and it didn’t go to a Manchester United player!

Steven Gerrard was voted Footballer of the Year by the Football Writer’s Association. Congratulations. You deserve the accolade. Gerrard played a lot more than 13 games this season. 29 in the Premier League and 40 total for the season. He would have played more if it wasn’t for injuries. What then? Would he have been the PFA Player of the Year? And would Liverpool have been crowned Premier League Champions by now?

Whatever the outcome this season, Steven Gerrard is one of those football players we’ve just loved to watch. I think he’s also one of those players every fan would love in their team. He’d be captain of my team. He’s got balls and spirit. He deserves to win a title with Liverpool. It’s the trophy that’s eluded him thus far. Gerrard wants to win the Premier League as bad as Roger Federer wants to win the French Open. But will it happen for them? Will this be their year?

    Gerrard is the man. It was tough seeing him less than 100% at times this season, but he definitely deserves the award. I fully expect Liverpool to win the Premier League next year.

    I think he and Torres will be on a mission next season. They need to add another world class player and they really could give United more of a push than they did this year.

    I have a hunch that Gerrard could have a “best footballer in the world” type season, especially if he goes on to do well in the World Cup with England. He’s due…it’s time…

    The summer transfer window is like waiting for Christmas. You have an entire list of things you want, you hope you get them all and in the end, even if just a few things on your list make it under the tree, you're fine with that!

    I fancy Arsenal to win the Community Shield against Chelsea in a few weeks. #factsonly
