Liverpool FC Scouse Captains: Steven Gerrard – Greatest Scouse captain, Merseyside’s greatest player?

Jeff Goulding


12 March 2018
Liverpool’s legendary Scouse captains, Jeff Goulding takes in the career of Steven Gerrard, Merseyside’s greatest player.

In comparing Liverpool captains, Gerrard is undoubtedly the boss of bosses, the Capo dei Capi.

Among the nine who rose from the banks of the Mersey to wear the armband for the Reds he is undoubtedly the greatest. Even ranked alongside the other 46 men who have captained Liverpool, Gerrard is peerless.

Gerrard, having led Liverpool as captain for 12 years, playing 710 games, scoring 186 times, including goals in every major cup final, as well as managing to score in 16 consecutive seasons and amassing 11 trophies, is clearly out in a league of his own.

Only Alex Raisbeck and Ron Yeats come close to Steven’s record of a dozen consecutive seasons as captain, with nine years each.

Gerrard’s performances and his connection to the city also place him in the same category as Billy Liddell and Kenny Dalglish.

He is, like them, a player who, during his era, not only represented the club with distinction, but who came to define it.

However, such is Gerrard’s greatness his influence and achievements go beyond the narrow confines of Anfield history. There is now a question as to whether he can legitimately lay claim to being the greatest Merseyside player of all time.
