To be fair to Gerrard he is up there with some of the very best.

If you are talking English (central) midfielders then here is my list.
Charlton>Robson>Gazza>Platt>Gerrard.

Charlton and Robson's records speak for themselves and we all know about them.
They were the best 2 England midfielders ever.

From the rest.....

Gazza had the most natural ability and in his prime he could run games all on his own.
If he had gone to United instead of London (i.e Fergie keeping an eye on him)
he could have easily gone on to become the greatest midfielder of his generation or possibly ever.
He was just awesome...-speed, strength, outrageous skills, confidence the lot....

But we all know what happened to him in the end.......he is still better(in his prime)
than Stevie G by a bit. David Platt deserves a mention also. he scored heaps of
goals from midfield for clubs and country. I remember him also in World Cup '90
playing amazingly.
Gerrard has the chance to make it further up the 'list' by the time his career is over.

He may go wandering in midfield thus neglecting other duties, but he is still a
World class player (and it pains me to say it).

Thats my take on this debate. :)

lads can we have civilised debate without resorting to name calling please?

Crooney-It appears you are wrong on this one mate. I dont think you should
argue the merits of it anymore. ;-)
Charlton and Robbo p1ss ALL over Stevie Gee any day of the week.
Im shocked that you could think Gerrard is greater than those 2 Gods.
Maybe you should have thought a bit longer when making this thread?
Just take it on the chin and crack on! :)

Edit: just saw your post above Croo. Good man.
And when did you start the Fuzz? :eek: ;-)
