Steven Gerrard ´ 2 Review

Summary ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Steven Gerrard Read Ý Gerrard My Autobiography 102 Steven Gerrard is a hero to millions not only as the inspirational captain of Liverpool FC but as a key member of the England team Here for the first time he tells the story of his lifelong obsession with football in an honest and revealing book which capt. Steven Gerrard is one of the most iconic footballers of the current generation He is very much a player capable of playing a number of roles on the pitch possessing great tackling and passing ability a vicious shot and great athleticism A local Liverpool lad he joined the Liverpool FC youth setup at an early age He rose steadily through the ranks and broke into the Liverpool first team in 1999 He was made captain of the club in 2003 and is also a key player in the England team Widely recognised as one of the best footballers in the world he has made over 450 appearances for Liverpool and scored over 100 goals In that time he has won every major club honour except the Premiership at least at the time of writing He was voted the PFA Young Player of the Year in 2001 and was voted Player of the Year in 2006 He was voted the Champions League most valuable player for the 2005 campaign after Liverpool won the trophy for the fifth time and has been included in the Premiership Team of the Year on six occasions Those are the statistics for the Steven Gerrard on the pitch Off the pitch he is known very much as a private individual who largely keeps himself and his family out of the limelight for non football related reasons His autobiography released when he was 26 was therefore much anticipated It was well received by fans and critics and won the Galaxy British Book Awards Sports Book Of The Year in 2007 Personally as may or may not be obvious from the information provided so far I was born and bred as a Liverpool fan I have a season ticket and travel to watch the team in a decent number of away matches including European matches on occasion As such I m surprised it has taken me this long to pick up a copy of Steven Gerrard s autobiography But was it worth the wait WHAT IT COVERS As previously stated Steven Gerrard released this book at the age of 26 which for footballers is only really middle age Most professional footballers don t retire until their early thirties and indeed the likes of Ryan Giggs who is an iconic footballer in his own right and still playing first team football for Manchester United at the age of 35 have shown that it is possible to go on longer than that at the highest level Personally I felt that at the time of releasing this book Steven Gerrard had at least another five or six years left at the very top level of club football As such it was something of a disappoint that he released this book only two thirds of the way through what is up to now a glittering career You can t help but feel at the end of this book especially if you ve read it recently that a second book is likely at some point down the line In terms of content as expected the book covers his early life and football career starting when he was aged nine It progresses in a logical fashion with later chapters generally alternating between Liverpool and England events all the up to the end of the 2006 07 season which is when Liverpool reached the final of the Champions League but lost to AC Milan So within the book you get his take on classic Liverpool moments such as the Treble in 2001 and winning the Champions League in 2005 as well as similar moments for England such as the 5 1 thrashing of Germany in 2001 In addition to the obvious topics Steven Gerrard also writes uite frankly about other not so obvious topics such as a career threatening injury that he suffered at the age of nine tackling his discipline problems on the pitch and his parents splitting up These topics will take the reader by surprise as few will have been aware of them from general media coverage or otherwise and help to pad out the book in terms of content As such despite the premature release of the book I didn t feel in any way cheated out of content here He certainly crams plenty in STYLE It is so often the case when reading an autobiography that you just think she didn t really write this The case in point is when a celebrity who is clearly not an academic produces an autobiography with flowing language and a superb vocabulary range To be honest I did wonder whether or not this would be the case with Steven Gerrard and the answer is that it very much isn t One thing that certainly does stand out in this book is that there is no doubt that Steven Gerrard has written this Granted it has probably had a spell checker go through it and been proof read to within an inch of its life but the words on the page are clearly Steven Gerrard s and no one else s But is this a good thing or a bad thing The short answer is both On the one hand it is fantastic to read about Gerrard s life in his own words You always feel that you re getting the genuine truth not only in the words but the style and this does add to the impact of the book On the other hand this is not nor does it ever pretend to be a literary masterpiece Steven Gerrard is not a writer and at no point is he going to win the Booker Prize As such seasoned readers may well be put off by the style of this book It is not particularly welcoming and you almost need to skim the words rather than trying to take them all in as individual sentences Certainly if you try to read the book intricately it will become a struggle because in all honesty it just doesn t flow that well from sentence to sentence Then again this is something that should be expected and persevered with If you want a literary masterpiece don t buy the autobiography of a professional footballerMY OPINION Personally this book stood out for me for a number of reasons The first is the stark contrast between the private nature of Steven Gerrard from day to day and how revealing he is in this book It would have been so easy for a footballer with this career up to this point to concentrate on the professional highs and lows and not delve too much into the personal side of things Indeed taking this route must have been tempting for someone who works hard to keep himself out of the media limelight But this is not the approach that Gerrard takes As well as covering the most well known professional moments of his career he also covers personal issues that he uite frankly didn t need to cover at all If he hadn t I don t think the reader would have known any different This approach is actually one that adds depth to the book As he goes through he talks about the impact of his family his upbringing his attitude and his outlook on a personal level bringing in deeply personal issues such as his parents breaking up as he does so Autobiographies are usually about gleaming information about your chosen celebrity but as I read this book I actually felt connected to Gerrard which meant that even when reading about topics that I know about so well I felt like I was looking at them from a completely new perspective This is one of the strengths of the book and a credit to the way that Gerrard has chosen to approach this In revealing personal information that he strictly had to he makes the book a lot deeper and a much satisfying read At the same time I never felt that the information revealed wasn t relevant which shows good balance and judgment in terms of the content that is included The other thing that stood out for me is how honest yet professional he managed to be throughout when dealing with other high profile players and managers There are plenty of ex professionals out there who have stirred up a lot of controversy in their autobiographies by being unnecessarily brutal to the point where you feel like they are stirring things up for the sake of it Gerrard doesn t do this and in my opinion he strikes the balance between honesty and professionalism perfectly He deals with a lot of players and managers in this book so much so that he has an index of names in the back and where he has referred to them and deals with them honestly Predictably there are people that he either didn t get on with or didn t approve of and he describes these players and expresses his opinions without ever over stepping the mark There are times throughout the book when he described heated arguments between himself and other big names in Liverpool s history but also manages to maintain a level of respect He gives his views on current and ex players managers and even referees and deals with them all in the same way Personally I found it refreshing to read about his opinion of these people without ever feeling that he was trying to stir things up I was surprised with his outlook on some people and not at all surprised with others he doesn t think Jeff Winter was a good referee but then again I have never met anyone who thinks he was but at all times I felt like I was getting an interesting and informed opinion from some with real inside knowledge of the modern game SHOULD YOU READ IT As stated above I personally read this book because I am a huge Liverpool fan And because of that but also the overriding positives described above I breezed through this in record time and loved ever second of it I ll re read it at some point too As such I would certainly recommend it to any Liverpool fan but then again most of them wouldn t need my recommendation to pick it up So what about you non Liverpool fans who nonetheless like football on a broader scale and can tolerate reading the thoughts of a rival player To be honest you re not going to like every part of the book If you re a Manchester United fan you may wish to just skip certain parts altogether Because let s be honest no amount of honest opinion is going to make you enjoy reading about Liverpool s fifth Champions League win in Istanbul It just isn t But the book is still worth reading for the real football fans because this book is genuinely interesting and not just blind propaganda for Liverpool fans to read about the glory moments all over again Football fans of all allegiances will find his revelations and opinions about other players and staff as well as his England experiences interesting and surprising all in one go The book is about learning about an iconic footballer as much as it is learning about the game from his own experiences and opinions And because of that it is a great read for anyone who simply holds a love for football And to each and everyone one of those people I would highly recommend it
