Iconic player. I can still remember the goal he scored against Man City that won Goal of the season that year. From the corner angle, he chested the ball, and with a volley boom, he scored. Could have cost Man city the league that season. Hugely underrated player

Crouch that year, any crossing is a goal, especially from Pennant, Babel or Benayoun. Men them, when Benitez was Benitez before his village people remembered to pay him a visit.

Daysis to you Steven Gerard, from your loyal fan and Liverpool ex-fan.
