Captain Fantastic made his senior debut at age 18, and in his 14-year career with the Reds, he's won almost every trophy there is and almost single-handedly brought Liverpool back from the brink of miserable defeat in the 2005 Champions League Final and a year later in the FA Cup Final.
Alas, Stevie G won't be around forever, and these days, he is spending almost as much time on the sidelines as on the pitch. As tough as it is to accept, Stevie's days are numbered at Anfield, and someone will need to step up and fill his shoes.
No one could replace Steven Gerrard totally and replicate what he's meant to Liverpool Football Club, but one player—or several—will at least need to take his spot in central midfield.
The best way to replace a player is to learn from him, so the youngsters at Liverpool better start taking note if they want to be Liverpool captain one day.
So, who will it be?
