Steven Gerrard has been a man and taken full responsibility for last night’s disappointing result and performance.
While the players clearly didn’t deliver on a night where more points were conceded, Gerrard took his share of the blame too for the way the football seems to be going.
In fairness, it’s a team game, including the manager. The players aren’t delivering and the manager’s system isn’t working any more.
We win and lose as a team, and that doesn’t change.
But clearly the boss isn’t hiding behind his players – he didn’t blame any individuals like he maybe used to – he’s simply calling out the team for not performing and stating it’s his fault.
We of course posited some theories of our own as to the lacking displays, but whether Gerrard is right or wrong, he’s being a man about it.
Now if the players could be men on the pitch that would be handy.
