What the hell was he thinking? What do you guys have to say about it?

Wow I never would expect this from him. This is something that I would expect from a player like Joey Barton but not from "Captain Fantastic." Gerrard is the captain of Liverpool and is their hero. I would expect him to act more professional seeing as how so many people look up to him.

I know he doesn't seem the type. I'm thinking he was a bit intoxicated.

They don't what role he really played in that all yet though. I doubt it was a beating like Barton dished out. sh*t happen

I heard it was just a group of scousers having a drink, and some dude looked at them wrong and recived a few clips
He was hurt but not seriously bad (nothing like joey b)

Gerrard is a bit of a scouse when he wants to be but I doubt he did anything major
Hopefully this won't fu** up their title challenge cause If arsenal or united (or villa for that matter :D ) all fall, I would hate to see chealsa win :(

It ain't down to what he gets charged for... its down to how he reacts on the pitch

Nah, I wasn't being serious.

But he is Steven Gerrard, not Jesus Christ.
He can fu** up.. Just like you and me.

Nobody is perfect.

Give the man a break, I'm sure he had reasons.

He'll be out within the next 48 hours if he isn't already. He's rich, famous and loved by a lot of people

I'm pretty sure he was out that night or the next morning cause he made bail. The news showed him driving out of his castle and going to practice.

He's was training today with 'pool

Apparently he has a court case coming up, which benitez and co. are set to back him up
Which means he'll get a slap on the wrist if he's charged at all

I think it'd be funny if Captain Courageous would have jail time. I really don't like him.
also, since he probably won't get any jail time, this shows how society has a double standard for the famous. If anyone else would've done this, you know they'd be in deep sh*t.

If anyone else beat someone, yes. The question is if he did any off the beating or was just in the wrong place with the wrong friends. If he was ur 100% right
