Gerrard staying at Liverpool

20 Jul

And all Liverpool fans breathe a sigh of relief.  Captain Steven Gerrard has announced his intention to stay at Liverpool this season after he had been the subject of transfer rumours during the World Cup.  The life-long Red had been linked with both Madrid and Inter.

Seeing this headline when I woke up this morning made my day.  Gerrard had a lackluster season last year, but hopefully he will be rejuvenated for a strong 2010-11 campaign and be Captain Fantastic once again.  His announcement comes on the heels of the Joe Cole signing, which is looking more and more brilliant by the moment.  Well played, Roy Hodgson, well played.

Next on the list for Mr. Hodgson? Convincing Fernando Torres to stay and getting a quality left back.
