Steven Gerrard: No Jacket Required

The Guardian is up with some fantastic details about the Gerrard arrest. It turns out the 34-year-old DJ that has suffered facial cuts, and possibly a lost tooth, might not have wanted to play some tracks Captain Fantastic really wanted to hear while out with his mates in the "bridal district." (True. Click the link for explanation.)

Anyway, the Guardian is just having fun with this little nugget it's culled from the day-after rumor mill:

"Gerrard is a big fan of Phil Collins and counts the singer's greatest hits as his favourite album. He is also partial to Coldplay."

OK, let me be frank. I love Stevie. He's fantastic when he's on form, the 2006 FA Cup final is one of the signature English football moments of the last few years, he's saved Liverpool's skin countless times.

BUT ...

There's always been something a little dull and dodgy about him outside of his play. His interviews are master classes in tedium as he appears to have very little of note or interest going on in his head. He sounds like a bore, honestly. But who cares, right? I don't want to be his buddy. I want the bastard to deliver a league title. But this Phil Collins revelation is just a gift from the heavens. Phil Collins' greatest hits album is Stevie G.'s "favourite." Let that soak in for a minute.

It's astonishing, isn't it? Get ready for away trips to include "Pseu-, Pseu-, Pseudio" chants, Stevie.

To the tune of "Easy Lover"

He's an easy scorer
He's got a goal on you, believe it
Stee-vie is like no other
He'll bash your face in right now, feel it

Believe me, I'm already working on some more.
