Gerrard Slams Critics For Writing Liverpool Off

Captain Steven Gerrard claims
criticism of Liverpool's start to
the season has been over the
After seven Premier League
games the Reds find themselves
languishing in the bottom three
after winning just one game.
Meanwhile, pressure is mounting
on manager Roy Hodgson just
weeks into his Anfield reign
following a third-round Carling
Cup humbling at the hands of
Northampton Town.
However, speaking ahead of
Sunday's huge Merseyside derby
meeting with Everton, Gerrard
claims recent criticism of the
manager and players has been
blown out of all proportion.
His rallying cry has arrived on the
same day that current co-owners
George Gillett and Tom Hicks are
attempting to block the
£300million sale of the club to
New England Sports Ventures in
the High Court.
"It's unfair for people to just
blame the manager for the bad
start to the season," he told LFC
"We're all in this together,
everyone at the club, from top to
"We've all got to accept
responsibility and pull together if
we are to turn things around.
"A good win in the derby would
be the perfect way to start doing
"We've had some wonderful
Champions League nights at
Anfield and I'm sure the
supporters would agree with me
when I say we want all that back.
"Obviously the only way to bring
it back is to finish in the top four
"That's the main priority for the
club and the players. It's where
we belong.
"Over the last five or six years
we've proved that we're one of a
number of clubs that deserve to
be at that level and we are all
determined to get back to it."
