Steven Gerrard was absolutly brilliant as an 18 year old. The match i watched was Liverpool-Everton at Anfield in the 98/99 season. Fowler scored two and Paddy Berger blasted in Liverpools third.
In the dying minutes Everton had three or four big opportunites to level the score. David James was all over the pitch, but Stevie G saved Liverpool time and again.
The commentator suggested that Gerrard, who only played 20 minutes for the injured Heggem, should have been voted man of the match. Gerrard was absolutly amazing as right back that day.
For those of you who were at the match or has followed Liverpool closer than me, was that derby match Gerrards real break trough? Was it all talk about God after the game or was Gerrard on everybodys lips?
Team that day:
James, Heggem, Staunton, Song, Matteo, McManaman, Redknapp, Ince, Berger, Owen, Fowler.
