Steven Gerrard, The Media & Liverpool’s Structural Issues

As things turned out, at least Brendan Rodgers had more cause to be grateful than most that last Saturday saw Steven Gerrard play his last match for Liverpool at Anfield for now, at least. The media hullabaloo that greeted the team captain at the weekend detracted in no small way from another poor Liverpool performance.

End Of Season Ennui

There’s something in the air this weekend, and it isn’t just a lengthened hangover caused by staying up all night on Thursday to watch the general election results come in. Across the board, the 2014/15 season is ending with a splutter rather than a climax of any description, and a familiar feeling of stratification is starting to fall over the competitions that we might have hoped would be reaching boiling point by this time.
