Gerrard Worried About How Game Will Be Remembered

Ahead of the it being confirmed that Luis Suarez had racially abused Patrice Evra, Kenny Dalglish claimed that the guilty party should be punished. That would mean if Evra couldn’t prove he was innocent, he should be punished for making the accusation.

Liverpool players then warmed up in t-shirts in support of Suarez and once Suarez was found guilty, showed no remorse. Instead, Suarez refused to apologise to Evra whilst Dalglish claimed the decision was some kind of FA conspiracy. Liverpool FC refused to accept that Suarez was guilty and released an official statement offering him their full support, despite the guilty verdict.

As a result, Liverpool fans believe their player has done no wrong and that Evra is the guilty party. Three weeks after Suarez was found guilty, their fans were racially abusing an Oldham player during a game.

Liverpool are now worried that during this high profile FA Cup clash on Saturday that their fans will be guilty of more of the same, with captain Steven Gerrard voicing his concern.

“We all have a responsibility,” said Gerrard. “We all have a responsibility to ensure that this game is remembered for the football. Liverpool and Man United is a massive rivalry and, of course, there is going to be stuff in the papers and banter between fans. But it would be fantastic if, after the weekend, it is remembered for being a top game and obviously, from our point of view, a Liverpool win. We don’t want any front-page stories from this game or any stories besides a football match between two top sides.”

    Stevie should be more worried about HIM being remembered as a rat eating thug than a talent player who won loads of trophies…

  2. Mes says:

    *talented

    arse

    Steve Gerrard, Gerrard.

  5. Mes says:

  6. Costas says:

    Tell Carragher to be more careful where he aims his studs then…

  7. Robbo says:

    Dalgleish

    Nob.

  8. Ricky says:

    He is right though. We need to all calm down. Rivalry is one thing. Getting ourselves in trouble is only going to harm our club

  9. CedarsDevil says:

    It will be remembered for the football with hopefully Evra netting the winner at the kopshite end.

    Poetic justice

  10. Lodi3000 says:

    Wonder if he’ll be thinking bout the integrity of the fixture when he’s taking one of his famous swan dives!!

  11. ClaytonBlackmoresTan says:

    ‘you’re’

    damn it.

    Ahem.

    Steeeeeve Gerrard, Gerrard
    your bird she just loves getting pissed
    you play with a dirty racist
    Steve Gerrard, Gerrard.

  12. T. says:

    Not one single word from that quote stating that he isn´t in fact a rasict and that the club won´t accept rasict abuse from players or fans. Fucking racist club!

  13. Humanoid says:

    Sorry to say this Gerrard, but I think u meant a game between a top side and a shitty, average side.

    GGMU

    Loving those chants pal, keep em coming

  15. Lodi3000 says:

    Ha humanoid think thats more accurate description!

  16. 0161-Jon says:

    LFC are absolutely shitting the PR disaster that is about to explode. They know their fans are going to make cunts of themselves yet again.

    Evra will bloody love the aggro, even if he gets abused, he will just take the piss even more when we win!

  17. Sir Alex Ferguson Stander says:

    I think it speaks volumes that Gerrard is the one doing all the talking. Sir Alex has written to the fans and spoken in public but have we heard anything from Dogleash? Although given his handling of the the whole thing and the fact that he is the one to blame for enticing the situation he has probably been told to shut the f*** up and never speak in public again!
    Would love to see Evra score but I’ll settle for him setting up the winner. Come on you reds!

  18. Mes says:

    Just been to the Barbers and asked for a ‘Liverpool FC’ (A mess at the back, nothing on the sides and fuck all up top)

    He charged me £130 million

  19. Mes says:

    Will Torres beat Tim Howard’s remarkable goalscoring tally by the end of the season?

    The competition between the two of them is nip-and-tuck or touch-and-go at the moment… unlike Torres’s football.

  20. Mes says:

    Following the success of Steven Spielbergs’ film “Warhorse”, he has announced there will be a sequel.

    This one will be based on the career of Livepool FC striker Andy Carrol and will be titled “CARTHORSE”

  21. Notey90 says:

    almost fell off my chair laughing out loud to Mes comment.

  22. CedarsDevil says:

    Mes

    Fucking brilliant stuff, hilarious! haha Hope you’re enjoying married life pal

  23. CedarsDevil says:

    I keep reading that barber joke again and again and still pissing my self

  24. King Eric says:

    Gerrard was shite on Wednesday. Pound to a penny he has his customary good game tomorrow. Also that the dippers get a penalty.

  25. TheCANTONA says:

    If only your Queen Henny stop acting like a racist cunt maybe your fans can act properly too..

  26. King Eric says:

    Humanoid – Ha. Nice one pal.

  27. King Eric says:

    MES – Quality pal.

  28. chica chica says:

    Stevie “The Cunt” G – 0
    Michael Owen – 1
    hahahahahahahahaha……

  29. Lodi3000 says:

    Mes they cracked me up

  30. KeyserSoze says:

    Stables tour for our centre-backs today, anyone?

    http://www.pixpow.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/ball-horse.gif

    p.s. It’s one of those things that would crack me up for weeks, I know it’s been posted before

  31. AlphaRS says:

    Atleast he is making an attempt at diffusing the situation. Better than saying nothing I suppose.
    Would have been better coming from Kenny Dalglish though.

  32. KeyserSoze says:

    I wonder if Martin Ferguson and Rene Meulensteen’s recent visit to Amsterdam was solely scouting Ajax or they actually paid extra attention to Vertonghen, he suddenly comes up very upset and wanting to leave and that wasn’t the case when Arsenal scouted him. But why would we need another defender?

  33. WillieRedNut says:

    Hate to say it, but the thugs right. Whoever keeps their head, will win the game. In my dreams, Hernandez scores the winner. Then, I have a 5 hour session with Megan Fox! Sweet….

  34. ClaytonBlackmoresTan says:

    Steeeeeve Gerrard, Gerrard!
    You fight when you have a few beers
    No title in 21 years!
    Steve Gerrard, Gerrard.

  35. Lodi3000 says:

    AlphaRS true its commendable that he has spoken out and that dalglish should of also offered his support to this. Don’t think Dalglish thinks they have done anything wrong still though such is his ignorance

  36. Paul Parker says:

    Whatever happens I hope we put in a worthy FA Cup performance and play like we mean to win. Can’t be doing with half hearted performances at this stage in the season. We should be serious about trying to win the bloody thing, especially after our dismal exit from Europe. All I care about is a solid performance and a result, couldn’t give a flying fuck about what happens off the pitch tomorrow. Its never roses off-field playing LFC anyway.

    But I do love how the abuse of the Oldham player was kicked into the grass, I guess he has a history of making up allegations too aye? Come on Captain Evra, complete your much deserved medal collection and lead us towards the Final!

  37. WillieRedNut says:

    Would’ve been better coming from Dalglish, but he’s secretly hoping it motivates his players. That’s a dangerous attitude imo. Like throwing petrol on the fire. Just hope our lads don’t get sucked in. Keep your loafs straight and chests out!

  38. Lodi3000 says:

    I agree with that Willie. He’s doing the us against the world routine but its totally misguided in this case. The greatest thing to come out of this for me is the world has seen what sort of club they really are. And i fancy them to sully their reputation further tomorrow.

    I know we are capable of beating them, and it’ll be sweeter with the injury situation as it is.

  39. Paul Parker says:

    @ClaytonBlackmoresTan – the way “pissed” rhymes with “artist” is truly inspired mate.

  40. ClaytonBlackmoresTan says:

    I want to see the spirit of Strachan tomorrow- Havana anyone?

  41. mufc07 says:

    Liverpool are a shit club with average players. Love how Dagliesh (i dont give two shits about his spelling) handled the Suaracist situation. Shit club, racist fans, racist players, racist manager. He spent tons of money on shit players like Downing, Carroll, Adams (he is average) and Henderson and they are 7th in the table.

    They just need to accept that they are not top 4 anymore. They are becoming a mid table side.

  42. Warwick says:

    Shame Evra doesn’t have a song for our fans to sing over and over

  43. Ralphie Milne Ultras says:

    Justice for evra.
