Kop Quote

Gerrard on Morientes

"It's exactly the kind of signing we need. If you ask any of the fans about the calibre of player they want us to be bringing to the club, he would be it. I feel the same way. You know you're not taking a risk. It's good from a symbolic point of view that we've signed someone who's so renowned as a world-class player. I just hope, after all the success he's had and trophies he's won, he's as hungry to do the same for us."

In all sports, there will be an individual that is responsible for pioneering the entire face of the game. Yes, even in football, there was a football star that operated behind Beckham and basically allowed Beckham to bend it ‘like a Beckham’. That athlete is Craig Johnston. He was not liked by everyone, that is true. People did not see him as the definition of football, however, he did invent the Predator football boots that were worn by the likes of Zidane and Beckham.
