With the news that Steven Gerrard will be at least another 8 days out of action with his adductor muscle injury it appears the Liverpool captain will have a bit of free time on his hands over the coming days. But Gerrard is no fool. He has apparently been preparing for this.In the past year he has been bulding a new empire for him and his family and from what we can see its worked out very well.
Gerrard aggravated his thigh injury before Tuesday’s Champions League clash at Chelsea. He had strained his adductor in the first leg against Guus Hiddink’s side and was rested by manager Rafael Benitez for the 4-0 win over Blackburn last Saturday. But he was not even fit enough to make the bench at Stamford Bridge after Liverpool’s medical team discovered he had suffered a reaction to the problem during training. He wont be playing in the arsenal game this monday.
We say enjoy the new big brother house Mr Gerrard 🙂

for calling Everton a “small club” and for his gesture against Blackburn last week.

Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce has hit out at Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez.
Allardyce claims the Spaniard crossed his arms as if to suggest ‘that’s it, game over, job done’ when Fernando Torres scored in the 33rd minute of the Reds’ win over Blackburn last Saturday.
But Allot of fans have said these signs he uses to command his team in every game they may have a point we have all seen this on tv.
He said: “I was hugely disappointed by those gestures. They were disrespectful and quite humiliating. I was very, very upset about it.”
So who is winning? Nobody wins. It’s just two great managers who want what only one of them can have and they are more than happy to get personal to achieve their aims.All fun and games that’s what we say!
Did Alex Ferguson & Sam Allardyce plot a joint attack on Rafa Benitez? What do you think?

Of all the things a person could do to disrespect towards liverpool football club and the Hillsborough memorial service at Anfield on Wednesday was on show here!.Charles Itandje playing around in the crowd as lookers watch on!The French goalkeeper was spotted laughing and acting the fool by TV cameras at the service to mark the 20th anniversary of the deaths of 96 .(scroll down to see Steven Cohen views who Blames Liverpool Fans For Hillsborough Disaster!)
Anfield officials have described Itandje’s behaviour as “wholly unacceptable” and are exploring the maximum punishment they can impose on the player with their legal advisers. He is unlikely to play for the club again.Itandje joined Liverpool on a free transfer in the summer of 2007. The former Lens player has only featured in seven first-team games since then with his last appearance coming in last season’s FA Cup defeat by Barnsley.
With numerous complaints about Itandje’s behaviour reaching the club in the past few days, the news this Saturday is that a furious Rafa Benitez is said to want Itandje to be handed the maximum punishment available.All liverpool supporters will be off the roof seeing this its just the worst thing someone could do, get rid is the action and he will now go for sure.Please leave your views on this in the comments section below.

Things have heated up even more as Steven Cohen Blames Liverpool Fans For Hillsborough Disaster!.
Steven Cohen, co-host of the World Soccer Daily radio show, has been at it again
“People showing up without ticket, hell bent in getting into somewhere where they shouldn’t be going because they don’t have tickets, is the root cause of [the Hillsborough Disaster].”
“I’m yet to read anybody write in this weekend’s Sunday papers in England, where they’re all doing big commemorations about the 96, and why we should never forget and how it’s changed the game, nobody discusses the 6-8,000 who showed up without tickets and my argument has always been, if those people don’t show up, this never happens.”
“[Hillsborough] is a stadium that week-in week-out, Sheffield Wednesday used without incident.”
