Great goal yesterday and great performance. It was a Steven Gerrard beauty that one.
Interesting looking back at his stats with Monaco where he would regularly be weighing in with goals. About 1 in every 4 or 5 games over his last three season there.
I obviously wasn't an avid follower of his career at Monaco but I assume he played further forward there or maybe took set pieces?
He did take set pieces there, including penalties. In fact I think he had a perfect record with pens in his final season there. He took one in a preseason game for us last season, the one in Dublin, and missed. I don't think he took another one until the Charity Shield this season (which he took very well, btw). I don't reckon he's going to get the ball from Millie or Mo, however.
As for style of play, Monaco used twin holding mids most of the time so he and the other guy (no idea) would alternate on going forward or staying back. But to me, as the season has gone one, while there is no questioning his importance to our defence, we still see him creeping forward and being part of the attack, yesterday being the poster child of examples.
