Stevie G in (another) brutal reporter put-down...


Steven Gerrard slapped down Sky Sports’ Luke Shanley with a ripping riposte today as the reporter plumbed new depths of daftness with some really silly questions.

Asking the manager about Man Utd Liverpool, Shanley asked a really bumbling line of questions and Gerrard was (and wasn’t) amused by the idiocy of the posers.

Here’s how it went:

LS: "I appreciate you’ve got a big game on Sunday, there’s a big one after the game at Tynecastle finishes, is this the best time for Liverpool to be going to Old Trafford?"
SG: "Yes"

LS: "How do you think it’ll go?"

SG: "Liverpool win."

LS: "Why are you so confident?"

SG: (visible sigh and head turn with rolleye) "Are you going to continue to ask me these silly questions?!"

LS: (stutter)

We really do wonder what qualifications it takes to become a reporter these days…

  1. As Mark Twain said "“It's better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid, than open it and remove all doubt”. Someone should have told that to Luke Henley today!

  2. It was a stupid question, to be fair. That's like asking an Italian, if he likes Pizza.
