There are some things that you just know will happen, but you smile all the same when they do happen.
This was one of them.
Liverpool fan or not, you probably smiled a little when you read on Monday, July 15, 2013, that Steven Gerrard signed a new deal with Liverpool Football Club. A deal that effectively ties him to the club for the rest of his career.
Call it a match made in heaven. A Hollywood love affair. A Roy of the Rovers inspiration. Steven Gerrard's Liverpool story is a great one. One not without its bumps along the way, of course, what with his public flirtations with Chelsea back in 2004 and 2005, but a great story nonetheless. (And what great story doesn't have its bumps?)
With news emerging recently that the Liverpool captain is on his way back from a shoulder injury to start the 2013-14 Premier League season (via the Mirror), any football fan would hope to see plenty more chapters written in Gerrard's story, starting with his testimonial against Olympiakos at Anfield on August 3.
But let's take a look back at how it's has been written so far. Here are Steven Gerrard's top 10 moments in a Liverpool shirt, in chronological order. Enjoy, reminisce, and look forward to more.
