In the past 20 years football fans have been blessed with the opportunity to watch some of the very best players to have ever played the game. With modern football operating at such a pace on perfect playing surfaces, the levels of technique, pace and skill have sky-rocketed, producing some of the best stars around.
Although strikers have gained much of the attention, midfielders often run the show, and few have been able to do it with such style, panache and influence as Steven Gerrard. The former England captain and current Liverpool skipper has a highlight reel longer than The Godfather and Pulp Fiction put together, with his moments of pure inspiration simply breath-taking.
Remember the FA Cup Final goal in 2006? Of course you do. His header in the Champions League Final the year before? Yep. There are simply too many to list, making Gerrard one of the very best players of his generation.
Although he’s always been exciting to watch, the midfield general is known for being a bit downbeat in interviews after games. Darren Farley has picked up on this for his hilarious Coral ad, mimicking the sometimes dour Reds star perfectly.
