Gerrard’s geriatrics

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A twinge ensued sharply by a wincing grimace
Oblivious onlookers munch on their carrots and houmous

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Crouched, cheerless look, he signals code to the Gaffer
Furious flurry of gestures from head coach Rafa

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Long before Gosling and the curse of Tictac
Our commander trudged off weary and ready to hit the sack

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 As Maximus rose to exit the coliseum
I thought he was heading for the Goodison mausoleum

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Leaving the field for a cuppa in the blue canteen
The Toffee fan celebrations I have never ever seen

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 From our all action juggernaut we’ve come to expect the same
Absolutely nothing to do with an England game

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Number7
