There's a reason this blog has a name that on first sight doesn't seem to fit with soccer.

That reason is Steven Gerrard.

I love it. Martin Tyler and Andy Gray. It's the same pair that gave us one of my favorite gems after the final equalizer against West Ham in the FA Cup Final:

“Four added minutes…and Gerraaaard! Oh! Oh! Stunning! When you need somebody to stand up and be counted, to pull an absolute rabbit from a hat, Stephen Gerrard has done just that. We know the name, son!”

“Well, take a bow, son. I mean that. Take a bow. You have been avenged. If anybody ever doubted your value to your side, you have just blown it away with the most incredible equalizer ever seen in a cup final. But on the brink of stoppage time, you’re fighting against everything and you pop up with this? Absolutely top drawer! Magnificent!”
