"I'm staying, I've been through a lot over the past few days, my heads in bits, I've made a very rash decision and regret it wholeheartedly and now want to stay with Liverpool. I'm 100% committed to the club and apologise for my behaviour over the past few days and weeks."
Nope. I never quite forgave him for doing it last time - detrimental effect on the club and fans - so he can f*** off trying it again.
I would only forgive if he was truly humble and apologetic ,but we are talking about steven gerrard with a huge ego it just won't happen ,we aren'tgood enough for him apparently ,he's the only one who wants to the win the premiership
5 Stages of Grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance
No, not now. The panto last year was bad enough but I forgot about that. The strange comments and even those ones about us not being able to win the Champions League puzzled me. The inability to give the fans a concrete answer and his insistance on saying that he would sit down with the manager at the end of the season annoyed me a little.
basically we let ourselves be blinded by gerrard ,any other player saying things like " if we don't win a game or we don't win the final then I'm off " would have been quite rightly slaughtered gerrard has done this and more ,"I'm the f***ing man" ,giving it all the big I am crap becos he was a local lad we thought he was in the mould of a robbie fowler what we got was a mercenary no better than rooney ,I can't believe how embarassinbly obvious it is all now .
Of course I would take him back. If he would come out and say he wanted to stay after all then he would be admitting he made a mistake. People make mistakes, he is nothing different from the rest of us.
But I would want Rafa to find nother captain though.
I'd welcome him back with open ar...
Hang on, the Phone's ringing
Lads, Lads, He's STAYING!
If off to the General Forum - My monkey friends live there.
ps - this is the best thread EVER !
He can still f*ck off as far as I'm concerned. Cheeky t*** Twice in two years he's got within hours of signing for another club, then backs off and comes home saying 'I love you really'. Oh do you? And? He's like a promiscous lover, getting nailed all over town then coming back and expecting his dinner on the table.

Last night you were calling him all the names under the sun. Today you wake up and find out he wants to stay and admit in your thread your in a mess but think we should calm down, take a minute and wait until we hear what's to be said. Now your're preaching to people to get off their high horse ?
Last year he messed us about. Wanted to leave, changed his mind..we got on with it. This year the exact same thing happens but after we've won the Champions League ?
Former players' reactions:
"I can't believe it, I'm still trying to get my head around what has happened.
"I am delighted Steven is staying, I was speaking to him four or five days before pre-season training and there was no happier lad on Merseyside. He wanted to get a deal done, but he was a little concerned it was not done quicker. But it was only a side issue.
"I don't know what happened in between, I wonder if anything was going on behind the scenes with an agent or something. I was absolutely gobsmacked on Sunday. Then it all happened on Monday. There seemed to be unbelievable events going on. His mind must have been all over the place, and it needed a step back and that's what the parties have done.
King Kenny: "It's fantastic news. I think after the European Cup Final win, both Steven and the club wanted to continue the relationship.
"But for some reason we are maybe not entitled to know, yesterday it seemed as if that was not going to happen. But there is a totally different atmosphere now today and everyone will be delighted. In any conversation I have had with Steven he's been very positive and appreciative of the fans and the support they have given him.
"He's been at the club since he was 12 years of age. It's not corny - he really does love Liverpool FC. He could play anywhere in the world but is where he is because he wants to be there.
"I rate him very highly as one of the best players ever to play for Liverpool and if Liverpool were to make any signing this summer then Steven's signature is the best one they could possibly hope to have. "It's great news for everyone concerned and credit too to Steven for rejecting the money that was on offer from Chelsea."
"Yes, it is the second time he has stepped back from the brink but sometimes if you really love something you can get a bit frustrated and act on impulse. I think you can excuse him that.
"Obviously I'm delighted as everyone associated with Liverpool Football Club. Players like Steve Gerrard and Jamie Carragher are what Liverpool FC are all about. It takes a big man to go back on what he thought was right and say it was wrong - so he's been honest to himself and to the club which is nice to see. He's pledging his future to Liverpool he's showing how much he loves the club."
He said: "We are all delighted because we have all wanted him to stay. Whenever we have talked we have always known he wanted to stay and we understood the situation.
"Now we have a clear idea about the future. It's important that we received this good news and it has come as a boost for everyone at the club.
"I am sure now that Steve will be more focused on his club and on the games because his contract is sorted out. It will be a better situation for all of us.
"My relationship with Steven is fine, it always has been. I don't understand what I have been reading in the press. I am sure now that, if it's possible, our relationship will be even better.
"It has been a good day for the club and now we are looking forward to working hard, to improving the team and to doing our best to win games when the season starts."
"Steven is our captain and I want him to stay as our captain. It is true that he offered to give up the captaincy but I spoke to some players and our idea was the same - that Stevie should be our captain."
"I said to the manager I'd like to speak with the players on my own because I know some of them have been frustrated with what's gone on, just like the fans have.
"It would have broken my heart to have lost the captaincy but I thought it was right to make that offer."
"I've been with the manager and Rick Parry in meetings. I've seen Jamie Carragher and Didi (Hamann) and everyone's fine
"Of course it's a boost, we'd rather have done without it all, but we've got it and it will never happen again I can assure you.
"That's the end of the story. We've had all this. He changed his mind because he knew what he'd miss by going elsewhere. That's what changed his mind. He was confused but he's fine now. It is satisfying. It means to me as chairman that we're keeping our captain. It means a hell of a lot to me of course it does."
Asked how long Gerrard will now be at Anfield, Moores answered: "He said he's committed himself for life, so however long he lives!"
