the best player ever to not win the league
Madness that the likes of Anderson, Wes Brown...Danny Simpson and whoever else have all won it but Gerrard hasn't. Obviously the painful one is the year under BR but that team we had, it was good (well midfield onward, the defence and keeper was a wreck) but in truth it probably wasn't good enough to have been that close to winning it. Where as 08/09, we were a force across the whole of Europe that year with prime Gerrard, Pepe, Xabi, Torres etc, smashing 4 past the likes of Madrid, United and generally looking a force to be reckoned with...only to miss out because Federico Macheda of all players was popping up out of nowhere scoring late winners for the Mancs on the run in. To me, the circumstances of not winning the league was obviously far worse the year Gerrard slipped but the one I find harder to get my head around is 08/09. Very similar to last season, just the 2 defeats but let down by silly draws whilst the Mancs were scraping wins, the biggest difference is that it was the blue half that did it to us last season. Think Gerrard got about 25 goals that season.
