Liverpool balls: Gerrard earns by the second and Skrtel is a master of cool

by | 23rd, March 2015

When Manchester United beat Liverpool 2-1, the point scoring had only just begun. The Daily Mirror’s man with an abacus used various esoteric and expert techniques and algorithms to award his scores out of 10 to the game’s players.

The scores for the Liverpool team are worthy of comment. Three Liverpool players – Adam Lallana, Moreno and…Steven Gerrard scored 4 points each.  Gerrard scored one point for every 9.5 seconds he was on the pitch. He was, of course, red carded after 38 seconds of playing time. Lallana and Moreno lasted 45 minutes and 66 minutes, respectively.

And that’s not all.

The Mirror praises “Liverpool’s best defender” Martin Skrtel.

He “kept his head while others lost theirs”.

Skrtel has been charged with violent conduct over an alleged stamp on Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea.

It’s almost as if those points aren’t worth the paper tgey’re written on….
