You uh..know how it goes

Steven Gerrard today revealed how Fernando Torres' transfer deadline day move to Chelsea left him broken-hearted - and then spoke of his confidence that Kenny Dalglish can lead Liverpool to a bright future.

"I was heartbroken. Absolutely gutted. But I also called him after he left," Gerrard said.

"There are no hard feelings. I built up a relationship with Fernando and became his friend. He scored some fantastic goals and I have fantastic memories. I enjoyed playing with him. So you can't go from one extreme to another and fall out with him, start criticising him.

"But he will also understand how I feel. Fernando is a bright person and he will understand that the Liverpool fans are upset as well.



"The football club is much happier now. It's in a better place than it has been for a few years. We've got new owners, who I've spoken to quite a lot, who are passionate about what they want to do.

"I trust them, I trust them even more after what's happened in the last week or so. And the way they've acted, coming towards the end of the transfer window, has impressed me. I was a bit wary at first because I was maybe a bit guilty of trusting the previous owners too much.

"This time I've taken a bit more time in judging them. But they've been brilliant so far. They have put the club back in a good place already and the last three or four weeks have been really positive. We've had some good results. The lads are smiling again. I've actually enjoyed going to work again."

Gerrard also admits the return of Kenny Dalglish to the manager's seat at Anfield has been instrumental in the recent revival in fortunes.

"First and foremost, he's a good person," he said. "He's helped me throughout my career. The advice he has given me, even before coming back as manager. He's always had time for me. Cared for me. I know how much he wanted this job and I'm just glad he got what he wanted.

'I feel he can take the club forward. As everyone knows, it's a results business. But so far, so good, and I'd love him to get the contract extended.

'He's brought everything together. Growing up, my experience of Liverpool was that you don't hang out your dirty washing in public. For the last couple of years there's been a lot of bad press. Non-stop.

'That's not the way we want the club to be run. But Kenny's come in and he's lifted the fans and the players. I think you can see that in the determination they have shown in the last few games. The players are certainly playing for Kenny.'

How is it that the defense is ALREADY looking shaky? Ugh - I'm nervous.
maggie: stevie captainmargariita on February 12th, 2011 03:19 pm (UTC)
stevies thoughts on this were pretty much the only thing i wanted to hear since this whole shitstorm started.

poor guy. he sounds so conflicted in his coming to terms with it. i'm sure he'll never trust another spaniard for as long as he lives. lol

i did love what he had to say about kenny though :3

Whatever, I still love Gernando :(

I am sure Stevie is really sorry. I bet he is not sleeping because he cannot stand a life without Torres. God it's so cruel. Oh wait...

Finally! The one person whose opinion I care about besides Carra speaks and like him he's a class act. Unlike Dagger who was like yeah I don't curr but he proceeded to talk about it. Show how little he cared.
I loved the wink Stevie gave to Torres at the handshake. Stevie is flawless and I am happy they remain friends and have mutual respect for each other. Everybody should react this way, cause Stevie was being realistic and also knew how fans are gonna react and had the right to say that. FLAWLESS.

WHEN DANNY MURPHY LEFT:

'I am still gutted to this day that Danny is not at Liverpool. It kills me. Really does… God, I miss him.'

WHEN MICHAEL OWEN LEFT:

'My career had been so intertwined with Michael’s. I’d lost a fantastic team-mate, a striker whose runs I could pick out in my sleep. When Michael left Anfield, a part of me left with him.'

WHEN XABI ALONSO LEFT:

'Devastated, yeah. Devastated. But there was nothing I could do about it… We’ve got other midfielders here doing a good job but it will take a while before Alonso’s out of our system because he was such a top player… He was sometimes underrated when he was here because of the likes of Fernando Torres and that, but when you play with him and without him you realise how much he meant to you, both as a player and the team as a whole.'

WHEN FERNANDO TORRES LEFT:

'I was heartbroken, absolutely gutted.'

You'll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You'll be here in my heart, always

Why can't they understand
the way we feel
They just don't trust
what they can't explain
I know we're different but,
deep inside us
We're not that different at all
