STEVEN GERRARD IS SO IMPORTANT TO FOOTBALL.
steven gerrard is everything that is good about football. he’s a player that embodies everything the fans love about the sport. he gets how much football matters. he’s a walking example of how much football matters. if it didn’t matter stevie would have left for chelsea or real madrid or fucking any club in europe as they all wanted a piece of him. but since football does matter he chose to stay with the team he’s supported since he was a baby. he doesn’t show up for the paycheck and do the bare minimum, he puts so much into it that he’s left with fucking nothing after his team loses. he’s left scratching at himself until he bleeds because he is so tremendously bothered about his team losing.
and because stevie gets that football matters he’s left with this tremendous feeling of responsibility. he takes the hopes and dreams of millions of fans and places them on his shoulders alone. he’s driven by his fear of letting people down. it scares the shit out of him, the idea of letting people down and when it happens he breaks. he literally breaks. he actually said he’s broken after what’s happened with england (and i’m sure liverpool’s season also contributes to this). his song is he’s big and he’s fucking hard yet he admits to being broken. i feel like this is just a step beyond what you typically hear an athlete say after a failure. there’s no talk of bouncing back, he’s just too shaken by what’s happened.
vanilla extract smells so right but tastes so wrong
just like play doh
life is full of so much deception and trickery
WHY ARE YOU EATING THESE THINGS
