Er.. Neither is Gerrard.
I said if fit. If FIT, Gerrard starts pretty much all our games. And he doesn't do it on reputation, he starts because he deserves to. He's not been the same these last 2-3 years, I give you that, but an out of sorts Steven Gerrard is still far and away more useful than Adam, Downing, Henderson, Spearing, Kuyt, Maxi, Carroll, Cole or Alberto shithouse Aquilani.
He gets injured a lot, and that is why I agree we should have a vice
-captain who is a first team player. My choice would be Agger, some would say Pepe, and some Lucas. I'd be fine with any of them because its just a little silly having our vice captain be 3rd/4th choice centre back.
What is it with you and Steven Gerrard? Perhaps you asked him for an autograph and instead he drew a cock on your prized program? Maybe he reached his hand to you for a high five but pulled it back at the last moment and made you feel foolish? Did he eat your last rolo? Were you in an elevator together and he let one go? I can't fathom how anyone can hold such over the top hatred for a player who has given this club so much.
