Steven Gerrard is one of the most iconic footballers of the current generation He is very much a player capable of playing a number of roles on the pitch, possessing great tackling and passing ability, a vicious shot, and great athleticism A local Liverpool lad, he joined the Liverpool FC youth setup at an early age He rose steadily through the ranks and broke into the Liverpool first team in 1999 He was made captain of the club in 2003 and is also a key player in the England team Widely recognised as one of the best footballers in the world, he has made over 450 appearances for Liverpool and scored over 100 goals In that time he has won every major club honour except the Premiership at least at the time of writing He was voted the PFA Young Player of the Year in 2001, and was voted Player of the Year in 2006 He was voted the Champions League most valuable player for the 2005 campaign after Liverpool won the trophy for the fifth time, and has been included in the Premiership Team of the Year on six occasions Those are the statistics fo
You know how people say that when you read A Clockwork Orange, the first 100 pages are a real strain to get through Well, the first 100 pages of Gerrard s Autobiography are like that The prose in the entire book is monosyllabic, full of an embarrassing level of romanticising of Liverpool FC and their supporters, and replete with sentences so short as to make Hemingway raise a bushy eyebrow, and it takes a while before you stop grinding your teeth and get used to it What makes it worse is the knowledge that these aren t actually Gerrard s words rather, this is the work of two journalists who have tried to imagine what Gerrard s writing style would be like They couldn t have been patronising Quite honestly, you can skip the first 64 pages all they do is paint the picture of a spoilt brat, constantly crying when mum and dad wouldn t buy him the latest replica kit or other such banal tragedies because once that obstacle has been overcome, you reach the stage where Gerrard s book becomes one of those rare things in this genre a sports autobiography where the subject isn t afraid to get a few things off his chest Igor Biscan is a tit , gamesmanship is branded solely a foreign disease swiftly followed in the next paragraph by an account of Gerrard himself once diving to win a penalty , Clinton Morrison is a complete prick.For that reason alone, Gerrard s book is worth a read compared to most modern day footballers efforts You
