Gerrard is so adored by those whose passion is Liverpool FC. In their eyes, he is the best player in the world - although this is diluted by the fact that few others have even come close to matching his high standards, whether through ability or, on occasion, loyalty.

Thanks Stevie

Steven Gerrard is a student of the game. He took in everything that could help him become a better player. Like all the great players, he had class and he wanted to learn more and more every day and work at his game. He was the first to give his all, no matter whether it was in training or a match. He's a totally committed leader with superb technique and an exceptional amount of mental and physical energy. It was a pleasure to coach a player like that. There are three words that describe him: classy, combative, captain.

What is it about rock stars that won't make them quit while they're ahead? ... I mean, just think of some of the more hedonistic behaviour - eating bats (Ozzy Osbourne), the shark episode (Led Zepellin), urinating on the Alamo (Osbourne again) - if any of them behaved like that in a nursing home then they'd be dosed up and diagnosed with senile dementia.

Steven Gerrard announced his international retirement to a chorus of fans and experts claiming he did the right thing, but why is it left to players to make the call?

Under such tremendous scrutiny, the pressure on Cook to perform, both personally and as a leader - a role for which his insular personality seems ill-suited - may be too great. Perhaps, in the modern era, the job of England cricket captain really is impossible.
