Early career

Gerrard started out playing for local team Whiston Juniors. He was noticed by Liverpool's scouts aged just 8,[6] and joined the Reds as a schoolboy in 1997. He played relatively few games, with late growth spurts restricting him to only 20 games between the ages of 14 and 16.


Aged 14, Gerrard had trials with various clubs, including Manchester United. In his autobiography he claimed that this was "to pressure Liverpool into giving me a YTS contract." During this time he had an accident involving a garden fork and could have lost his toe.[7] Manchester Uniteds emblem Manchester United F.C.

1998-99 and 1999-00

Gerrard made his debut for the Liverpool first team on 29 November 1998 as a second-half substitute for Vegard Heggem against Blackburn.[7] His first start came in the UEFA Cup against Celta Vigo.[7] Due to an injury to Jamie Redknapp, Gerrard went on to play 13 games for Liverpool that season.

The 1999–2000 season saw Gérard Houllier start with Gerrard partnering Redknapp in central midfield. After being in the starting line-up for the first six games, Gerrard was relegated to the substitutes' bench for the local derby against Everton.[7] Gerrard replaced Robbie Fowler after 66 minutes but went on to receive the first red card of his career for a foul on Everton's Kevin Campbell in the 90th minute.[7] Later that season, Gerrard scored his first senior goal in a 4-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday.[7] Gérard Houllier, OBE, (IPA: , born 3 September 1947, in Thérouanne, Pas-de-Calais, France) is a football manager. ...

His back was causing him regular problems. At the time, many journalists surmised that fans would never see Steven Gerrard complete anything close to a full season. However, manager Gerard Houllier took the practical approach and sought specialist help. After visits to the renowned sports consultant Dr Müller-Wohlfarth,[7] it was diagnosed that Gerrard's pains were a result of accelerated growth in a short period of time.[7] After treatment he and Liverpool F.C. were assured that these problems would not recur. Gerrard then suffered from groin problems. He was said to need 4 surgeries for this correction.[7] He then saw Liverpool F.C. doctors and kept his faith with Liverpool. He was sent to a Frenchman for his treatment by Gérard Houllier.[7] He worked hard to recover and soon his groin injuries were no longer a problem. It had also been claimed that because of a 3 inch growth in his height during one year that the growth in his body caused many of the problems. In his early career it was said by some that it was impossible for him to play two games a week. Dr Hans Muller-Wolfhart is the club doctor at Bayern Munich and is a world leader in the treatment of sports injuries. ...


2000-01: The "treble" season

2000-01 brought Gerrard his first trophy successes: he put his injury problems behind him and made 50 first team appearances, while scoring 10 goals, as Liverpool won the League Cup and FA Cup. In the UEFA Cup final against Alavés, Gerrard scored his first major final goal as Liverpool won 5-4.

2001-02 and 2002-03

Following the 2001 treble season, Gerrard became increasingly influential in the Liverpool side as he became more experienced and his injury problems waned. He played an important part in Liverpool's 2001-02 season which resulted in the club finishing second in the Premier League with their best points tally in over a decade. During the course of this season, Houllier suffered serious health problems which resulted in him having to undergo major heart surgery. At this point Liverpool looked like becoming a force in English Football once again, but after Houllier's illness the team began to go backwards. The team's performance became increasingly erratic (at one stage Liverpool went 11 games without victory in the 2002-03 season) and reliant on Gerrard and Michael Owen to win matches with flashes of inspiration. Michael James Owen[2] (born December 14, 1979, in Chester, Cheshire)[3] is an English football player currently with Newcastle United. ...


Gerrard suffered a period of unusual poor form during this time culminating in his substitution during a Champions League match with Basle at half time with Liverpool 3-0 down. After the game Gerrard was the subject of public criticism by Houllier, who suggested that he was not fully focussed on his football. Gerrard claimed in his autobiography that the end of his parents marriage had deflected his attention from the team. Gerrard quickly recovered from this poor spell and once again began to assert sizeable influence on the team. The season culminated in a series of outstanding performances from Gerrard, which included him scoring the first goal in Liverpool's 2-0 Worthington Cup final victory over fierce rivals Manchester United. He was also sent off in the last game of the season at Chelsea.


2003-04: Captain of Liverpool

By the start of the 2003 season, Gerrard had established himself as Liverpool's on-field leader and it was no surprise when he was finally officially recognised as club captain, replacing Sami Hyppia. Houllier handed the responsibility to Gerrard in October 2003,[7] perhaps hoping that he could inspire his teammates to improve their performance, but also to compel him to take responsibility for his own indifferent disciplinary record – a tactic which apparently worked as throughout the season, he was booked only twice. His then Liverpool team mate, Michael Owen, in his autobiography expressed relief at Gerrard being named captain as it took the pressure off him. Gerrard also penned a 4 year contract worth £60,000 a week. Sami Tuomas Hyypiä (born October 7, 1973 in Porvoo) is a Finnish footballer who currently plays for Liverpool F.C. in the English Premiership. ...

However while Gerrard excelled as Liverpool's captain, the team continued to stall and the 2003-4 season ended with no trophies and a lack of optimism about Liverpool's future prospects for success under Houllier. For the first time it was suggested that Gerrard may have to move away from Anfield to fufil his potential. The previous season had seen Liverpool fall well short of competing for top prizes and they only just scraped into a Champions League place on the last day of the league season. The Liverpool board decided that change was essential and Gerard Houllier departed as manager. This led to frenzied media speculation that Gerrard would also leave Anfield, but the appointment of Rafael Benitez convinced him to stay to see what the new manager could deliver. Rafael (Rafa) Benitez Maudes, (born 16 April 1960 in Madrid, Spain), is a football manager, appointed on 16 June 2004 as the manager of Liverpool F.C. in England in succession to Gérard Houllier. ...


2004-05: Champions League winner

Gerrard celebrates scoring a goal for Liverpool.

Having committed to Liverpool, it was important for both the club and the player to have a good season. However, in the early part of the season Liverpool struggled under the new management. Liverpool were not helped by the sale of Michael Owen to Real Madrid and a serious injury to striker Djibril Cisse. Injuries severely affected the rest of the team, including Gerrard himself. A foot injury sustained against rivals Manchester United on 20 September 2004 ruled Gerrard out of first team football until late November 2004. By that stage the club were already out of realistic contention in the Premier League and they were also under pressure to stay in the Champions League.

Liverpool went into the final group game requiring a 2 goal win to progress into the last 16 of the competition. Dramatically, Gerrard scored a crucial twenty-five-yard strike in the last five minutes against the Greek team Olympiakos to secure the team's progress.[7] . The result was particularly impressive as Liverpool were 1-0 down at half-time to a Rivaldo free kick and required three second half goals to go through. Liverpool had been struggling for goals after Owen's sale and Cisse's injury. However, they launched a dramtic comeback scoring 2 goals before Gerrard secured their place in the knockout stage with the crucial third goal with a late strike from outside the box. He has since claimed that this was his most important, if not his best, goal for Liverpool to date.[8] A yard (abbreviation: yd) is the name of a unit of length in a number of different systems, including English units, Imperial units, and United States customary units. ...

This result dramatically transformed Liverpool's European season and they were victorious in two legged ties against Bayer Leverkusen, Juventus and Chelsea in the knock out stages, with Gerrard a key performer throughout and they went on to reach the Champions League final. However in the meantime, the club continued to struggle domestically finishing only 5th in the league - more than thirty points behind the champions Chelsea. Liverpool did reach the Carling Cup final, but were beaten 3-2 by Chelsea after extra time. Gerrard, unfortunately headed an own goal with Liverpool winning with ten minutes left of normal time. This proved to be one of the lowest points of his Anfield career and once again, media speculation arose that he would be moving on from Liverpool at the end of the season.


The Istanbul Final

Liverpool's entire season came down to the 2005 Champions' League final against AC Milan in Istanbul. The game did not start well for them. At half-time Liverpool had been completely outplayed and were 3-0 down. It appeared that AC Milan had the trophy won already. However, Rafa Benitez made a number of tactical changes at the break; perhaps the most crucial being the substitution of Dietmar Hamann for Steve Finnan which allowed Gerrard to push further forward in the hope of rescuing the game. The changes were successful and Liverpool launched one of the most famous comebacks in sporting history. 2005 UEFA Champions League Final The 2005 UEFA Champions League Final was a football match that took place at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey on May 25, 2005 and lasted until the early hours of May 26, 2005. ...

In a frantic six minute spell in the early stages of the second half, Liverpool scored three times to level the game at 3-3. Gerrard led the charge heading the first goal in from a John Arne Riise cross in the 54th minute. Taking personal heart from the goal, he was seen widely gesturing to his team-mates and the supporters that they still had a chance to turn things around. Two minutes later Vladimír Šmicer scored the Reds' second goal. Moments later, Gerrard won a penalty when he was brought down in the box by Gennaro Gattuso. Initially Xabi Alonso's spot kick was saved by the goalkeeper (Dida) but he failed to hold the ball and Alonso scored from close range with the rebound to make it 3-3.

There were no further goals in the game and Liverpool went on to win the match via a penalty shootout, making Steven Gerrard the second youngest captain ever to lift the European Cup (Didier Deschamps is the youngest). Although he didn't actually take a penalty, he would have taken Liverpool's fifth spot kick if Jerzy Dudek hadn't already saved from Andriy Shevchenko to win the match for Liverpool.[7] Gerrard's goal made him one of only two people this century to score in both the UEFA Cup and Champions League finals (Dmitri Alenichev for FC Porto is the other).

Liverpool claimed the first domestic silverware of the 2006-07 season by beating Chelsea 2-1 to win the FA Community Shield.

Transfer speculation

Media speculation of Steven Gerrard's future was rife during two consecutive summer transfer windows, with him being most strongly linked with a move to Chelsea both times. During the summer of 2004,[7] he was approached by Chelsea, but eventually chose to stay at Liverpool. It is known that he was on the brink of signing for the London club but was persuaded to stay by his family and friends and his feeling that, as a local born player, he would regret playing for any other club team but Liverpool FC. The arrival of a new Liverpool manager Rafael Benítez also played a part in his decision.[7]. Chelsea Football Club (also known as The Blues or previously The Pensioners) are an English professional football club based in west London. ...

Immediately after the 2005 Champions League final, Gerrard gave a hint regarding his future, when he said to the press: "How can I leave after a night like this?"[14] However, by July contract negotiations broke down between Gerrard and the club. Reports stated that Gerrard was about to leave Liverpool, and Chelsea were again reported to have tabled a British record bid of thirty-two million pounds for the player. Throughout the episode, Liverpool remained insistent that they wanted Gerrard to stay, but on 5 July, Gerrard stated publicly that he wished to leave.[15] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

To the delight of Liverpool fans, Gerrard changed his mind the next day and pledged his future to the club.[7][16] He also apologized to the club's supporters and insisted that there were no get-out clauses in the new contract that he would be signing. He also offered to give up his captaincy, but was told by Rafael Benítez that it was not necessary.

In summer 2006, Gerrard squashed transfer rumours, publicly stating, "I'm not going to get involved in all that kind of speculation again; I'm settled and happy at Liverpool, and I'm not going to go through another summer like the last two. I'll be staying here until the day someone tells me they don't want me."[17]


Prior to the Champions League final in May 2007, Gerrard stated that he was in talks to sign a new contract with Liverpool, saying: "I've never been happier with my football. I'd love nothing better than to get this contract sorted and signed ... We need to keep all of our big players here so it's very important we get the contracts sorted out so they can be here for a long time." [18][19] It was announced on 4 May 2007, Gerrard would tie up a £120,000 pound a week contract to keep him at Liverpool until the end of his career, despite already being contracted until 2009 . This contract would make him the highest paid British player.

International career

Gerrard was given his international debut by Kevin Keegan against Ukraine on 31 May 2000.[21] It was 18 months and only 44 games since his debut for the Liverpool first team. That summer, he was picked for the England squad for Euro 2000.[22] In an unsuccessful campaign for England, Gerrard only made one substitute appearance, coming on for Michael Owen after 61 minutes, in the team's sole victory — a 1-0 defeat of Germany.[23] Joseph Kevin Keegan, OBE (born February 14, 1951 in Armthorpe, South Yorkshire, England)[1] is a former English football coach and one of the all-time greatest players. ... is the 151st day of the year (152nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2000 (MM) was a leap year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Gerrard was one of three Liverpool players including Michael Owen(3) and Emile Heskey(1) who scored in the famous World Cup qualifying game in September 2001 against Germany (1– 5 away victory), this being his first international goal.[24] England successfully qualified for the 2002 World Cup, but Gerrard was forced to pull out of the squad to undergo surgery on a problematic groin injury.[25] This operation finally put an end to injury problems that had plagued Gerrard since his early teens.

The 2004 European Football Championship saw Gerrard finally get a starting role in a major international tournament. Late in England's first game against France, Gerrard's back-pass was intercepted by Thierry Henry, who was then brought down by David James, winning France a penalty. Zinedine Zidane duly scored to give France victory 2-1.[26] England went on to win their next two group games to progress in second place, with Gerrard scoring his first goal at a finals competition with the third goal against Switzerland.[27] England lost in the next round to Portugal, with Gerrard being substituted in the 81st minute.[28] Euro 2004 Logo The 2004 UEFA European Football Championship, commonly called Euro 2004, was held in Portugal between 12 June and 4 July 2004. ...

Gerrard suffered an injury scare days before the 2006 World Cup in Germany, when it was suggested that he might be ruled out of England's first game of the tournament; however, he was deemed fit to make his first ever World Cup appearance,[29] and started in the side that beat Paraguay 1-0.[30] He then went on to score twice in the group stages of the tournament – first netting England's second goal in a 2-0 victory over Trinidad & Tobago with a brilliant long-range, curled strike (coincidentally, again past Hislop) in injury time. This victory, in which Gerrard's Liverpool team-mate Peter Crouch also scored, ensured England's progress to the second round of the tournament with a game to spare.[31] Gerrard was then initially rested for the final group game against Sweden, as a precaution against picking up a second booking that would have ruled him out of the second round match (having already received one against Paraguay). He came off the bench to score a powerfully headed goal in the 85th minute, giving England the lead in a game that finished 2-2.[32] Gerrard was one of three England players to see their penalty saved by Ricardo Pereira in the quarter-final penalty shoot-out which was won by Portugal.

Gerrard was regarded by both the footballing media and bookmakers to be one of the prime candidates for the England captaincy after David Beckham resigned the post.[34] William Hill gave odds of 2/1 for Gerrard (with John Terry as favourite on 1/2 odds). With 47 caps at that time, Gerrard was a more experienced international player (as opposed to Terry's 29), but Steve McClaren chose to give the post to the Chelsea skipper, with Gerrard as vice-captain.[35] David Beckham David Robert Joseph Beckham OBE (born May 2, 1975) is an English footballer born in Leytonstone, London. ...

The milestones were starting to stack up for Gerrard, who kicked off the following season by netting his first international goal in the famous 5-1 trouncing of Germany in their own backyard.
The 2005-06 season was perhaps Gerrard's most impressive to date, scoring 23 goals in 53 games and being crowned PFA Player of the Year.
ESPN.com Soccernet England: Steven Gerrard (393 words)
Gerrard is one of the brightest prospects in England and made his Liverpool debut in a European tie during the 1998/99 season against Celta Vigo at Anfield.
Gerrard seems to have limitless energy in the engine room of Houllier's side and during the course of the 2000/01 season chipped in with his fair share of goals - usually blistering long-range strikes.
Gerrard put in a robust performance in the centre of midfield where he was later asked to man-mark Liverpool teammate and the Finns' dangerman Jari Litmanen.
