with or without you

Liverpool won or drew 65.12% of the games Steven Gerrard played in last season (league, cup, and Europe). They won 48.84% of those matches. That's almost half of the 43 in which he made an appearance, usually playing the full game, but occasionally being substitued after 65 or 80 minutes.

For the 17 matches we were without our "inspirational" captain, we won or drew 76.47% of the time, winning 52.94% of them outright.

My head can understand it's not the end of the world to sell him (for at least £40,000,000, of course), but my heart is still struggling with the idea.

On the other hand, if he wants to go, I can't help thinking fuck 'im, we don't need players that don't want to play for us.

And regarding why this happened, I'm not at all convinced that it's the club's fault. The whole thing is disappointing, but I can hardly see how Gerrard can say we didn't start talks soon enough when his own agent was away on his HONEYMOON until the end of June.
