Liverpool FC: 5 Reflections on What Steven Gerrard's New Injury Means

After another setback in the road to recovery for Steven Gerrard, it is a good time to take stock of what this means for Liverpool FC going forward. The simultaneous omission of Jamie Carragher from the lineup is an indicator that we are approaching an end of an era for the Reds. This may be the beginning of the second reign of King Kenny, but it is the twilight for two local lads that have defined the first decade of the new millennium for Liverpool. 

Anyone remotely familiar with English soccer over the recent years knows that Steven Gerrard is synonymous with Liverpool FC. Having had the opportunity to apply his trade at clubs like Real Madrid and Chelsea for more money and arguably better chances of winning a trophy, the Scouser chose to remain at Liverpool at every turn. That kind of commitment to the cause has made Gerrard the hero he is today for Reds supporters and they will never forget it.

When such talented, driven and committed players become the first names on your team sheet like Gerrard and Carragher for so long, it is hard to look past the time when they will no longer make the grade. Let us look at the implications of this new setback for the Liverpool side this season, while also casting our eyes a further down the road to what the changing of the guard will mean for the Reds long term.
