As Liverpool’s season draws to a close, we at The Anfield Shop cannot help but feel emotional knowing that Steven Gerrard’s chapter as a Liverpool player is coming near. Each player on the upcoming All Star charity match this Sunday between Team Gerrard and Team Jamie Carragher is overflowing with former teammates and rivals of LFC. Each is a link to the different special matches and moments that defined these two cornerstones of Liverpool Football Club. Although a charity match, this is going to have the energy of a celebration. We hope you get to catch the match somewhere memorable. In honor of Gerrard, here are the Top 8 Steven Gerrard items we have here at The Anfield Shop.
The domination that could have been. I have seen this team lineup before… Luis Suarez partnered up with Fernando Torres up top with Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso dominating the midfield. It wasn’t a dream. Honest. It was when I continued to play my FIFA season from EA Sports FIFA 2011. Now at the end of the month my video game roster becomes a reality and then some when the Steven Gerrard vs Jamie Carragher All-Star Charity Match happens at Anfield on March 29th. Well and then some, when you put in John Terry alongside John Arne Riise and Frenchman Thierry Henry in the starting 11 to bolster the attack. I know… right? Check out Gerrard’s starting 11:
Gerrard’s XI: Brad Jones; John Arne Riise, John Terry, Stephen Warnock; Ryan Babel, Xabi Alonso, Steven Gerrard (C), Kevin Nolan; Luis Suarez, Fernando Torres, Thierry Henry
Jamie Carragher’s team is pretty fierce as well. Pepe Reina returns to man the sticks with Alvaro Arbeloa at his side, passing it up to Luis Garcia and Raul Meireles with Dirk Kuyt and Craig Bellamy creating havok and space for Didier Drogba to attack. Not bad either. Here is Carragher’s starting 11:
Speaking of the man with the great golf swing… Haha… As each player got the invite, their social media spread the word. My favorite’s was an old rivalry within the club. John Arne Riise’s tweet about his upcoming match against Bellamy had to be my favorite out of all the former Anfield stars.
I think it will be team Gerrard by a landslide. Who do you think has the stronger team going into the All Star Charity match? It is great to dream what could have been. Terry clearing it to Gerrard, to Alonso out to Suarez blistering down the left. He crosses to Henry flicked by Torres… Goal. Or Carragher to Meireles. He finds Kuyt on the right. Kuyt through ball to Bellamy, who strikes it off Riise’s head, rebounded to Drogba and past Jones for a wild goal. Haha… a man can dream.

In a bold move by manager Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool started the match on the road at St. Mary’s without striker in the line-up. As it turned out Liverpool didn’t need one to see of a hard fighting Southampton. Goals by Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling guaranteed Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Southampton. This victory extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 10 games. Taking a look at the table, they also sit only three points from third place.
Taking a look at the upcoming schedule, Liverpool play Manchester City, Burnley (who drew versus Chelsea), an FA Cup quarterfinal against Rovers, Swansea (who beat Manchester United), Manchester United followed by Arsenal. Liverpool is still alive in the Europa League as well, thanks to Mario Balotelli’s penalty versus Beskitas (I’ll take it). The rest of March is pivotal to whether we are celebrating the continued momentum of Steven Gerrard’s final season with Liverpool, versus hoping the rest of the league is struggling as well to keep their ship afloat into May. The way the youthful core of Liverpool is playing with Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho creating the chances, I like our odds.
*Raising my pint glass*
Here’s to a keeping big momentum on our side. Top four or bust, let’s get back in the Champions League next season, eh? …and let’s bring home some silverware for Gerrard’s last run. You’ll Never Walk Alone!

Liverpool were unfortunate not to come out of Anfield with a first leg advantage in their Capital One Cup draw versus Chelsea on Tuesday. Liverpool hammered nineteen shots at Thibaut Courtois while Chelsea only threatened the Liverpool goal twice. Unfortunately for the good guys, one of those shots was Eden Hazard’s first half penalty. Liverpool certainly deserved more than just Raheem Sterling’s goal in the 59th. Alas, they travel to Stamford Bridge for the second leg of the cup… where Chelsea has not lost a match this campaign.
Sterling’s goal underlines his importance to the Liverpool side and speaks the necessity keep him at Anfield long term. All the speculation about contract extensions or going to another club isn’t disturbing Sterling’s concentration on what matters. The team winning.
“Everyone in the team contributes and I am no different,” said Sterling in The Guardian. “We are a team. I am not trying to pick up a ‘main man status’ this season. As long as the team wins and we get good performances that is all that matters to me.”
“It will help our confidence because we played our normal game against Chelsea. We did the things we wanted to do. We were not forcing our play. We probed when we need to probe and attacked when we need to attack.
It will be difficult at Stamford Bridge because they haven’t lost there this season but if we play our normal game and play the football that we know we can play I definitely think chances will come. Then it is up to us to take them and to defend well.”
Sterling did regram this amazing image from Abokr Omar on his Instagram that gave us all a laugh. On to the match at Stamford Bridge lads and ladies.

The video game company EA Sports gives us the first look at what Liverpool Captain Steven Gerrard looks like in a LA Galaxy kit. We still have some time with Gerrard at Liverpool, but The Anfield Shop came across this short video from FIFA 2015 on our feeds and felt inclined to share with all of you.
I have to admit as a San Diegan I have never supported any LA sports franchise. The words “Beat LA” have been drilled into my head as soon as I realized the energy and passion behind who you support in sports. That being said… I am still debating whether or not to buy a Gerrard kit from the Galaxy. However, I do know I will be keeping tabs on the Galaxy going into next season more than I ever have, since the league began.
We at The Anfield Shop want to know if you going to start watching more MLS when Gerrard lines up for the Galaxy? Let us know via Social Media by tagging us at @AnfieldShop & @AnfieldShopBlog plus use the hashtag #AnfieldShop
