Quick Throw: Gerrard Out Three Weeks

A Liverpool spokesman confirmed this morning that Steven Gerrard will miss "about three weeks" of action due to a torn hamstring. The Big Fella's been ruled out for international duty next Wednesday against Spain in Seville, but not the Champions' League match with Real Madrid on February 25-- precisely three weeks to the day he sustained the injury.

When Rosicky tore his hamstring, he was out only about 3-4 weeks too. What's that, a year ago?

Enjoy 6th this year scousers!

Noooooooooooooo! Goddamnit, just when we get Torres back and in form.

Right here, right now: If Liverpool finish sixth, I will literally eat my hat.

But if he's got a real injury, how is he supposed to fake an injury to get out of international duty?

Good thing Rafa has a certain bench-warming Irishman who would be best suited for Gerrard's role. Here's the chance you've been waiting for Robbie Kea...wait, what?!

Great...

"just when we get Torres back and in form."

Doesn't matter, guaranteed Torres picks up the same injury playing in a meaningless game for Spain.

@Georger: If you eat your hat, we need video evidence.

I'm sorry, but I don't see Liverfourth becoming Liversixth this season. The other teams competing for the CL spots are pants, and 'Pool have the quality and experience to stay in top 2-3.

Watch the Villa, though.

Can you smell what Rafa is cooking?

Keane could. And it smelled like shit.

Adam said...

So Villa's gonna be the only team trying to fight United for the league then this year?

Pool's still getting into the CL, with the way Chelsea and Arsenal are playing, its hard seeing them fall below 4th.

Careful Georger- that's the second Liverpool related eating bet this season.

I think I pledged, before the season that I would eat a piece of paper with the words "Liverpool won't win a thing" written on it if Liverpool do, in fact, win anything. If my bet goes uncollected, you may end up having to prepare a hat for consumption.

What kind of hat is that?
