Gerrards discipline has improved dramatically this season. Hes playing as a deep lying play maker and put in good performances against Arsenal and Man city along with all the smaller sides

 

my favourite pass he made this year

 

 

and general plays he has made this year

yeah stevie has always had a superb range of passing, infact they all do

 

I think Gerrard now is more tactically aware, than he was under Rafa

 

The media used to scream and shout about Gerrard playing in cm as opposed to RW but I remember when Rafa started him there at Ewood park...he left gaping holes in the midfield and then Tugay killed him with two stepovers on the edge of the box which lead to Benni McCarthy scoring

 

@Philos true say you have been watching championship football for most of your life but tbh there isn't much between the 3

3 totally different players tbh

 

 

lampard isnt realy a great central midfielder as his goals gloss over his actually ability in the centre of the park,

 

a very effective SS/AM tho

bit of a myth thoe really

 

Lampard has a great engine, brilliant stamina, tactical awareness, can pass, scores goals and creates goals

 

if that isn't a recipe for a 'great central midfielder' then i don't know what is

I'm saying Gerard , maybe the goals have dried up a little but he really is a jack of all trades .Lamps will get u the goals but defensively he will rarely track back.

But In a deep lying position carrick all day them through balls split defenses like crazy.

They all perform to the best of abilities in diff pos

Gerard Cm

Lamps am/ss

Carrick deep lying play maker

Gerrard for the fact he's carried a team for nearly 10 years single handedly.

 

Plus Gerrard is the much more versatile player, can do what Lamps and Carrick specialize in, not to the same ability of course but he could do it competently.

One of the biggest myths ever

"Gerrard carried Liverpool"

I cannot remember any big games he single handedly won for the team

Feel free to name one

/

Lampard I cannot rate as a top midfielder when his biggest asset is goalscoring

Carrick I like but he isn't that guy Clive Tydsley thinks he is

The amount of times I have heard the phrase "Carrick should be dominating this game and if there is one person on this pitch(bear in mind a big European game is going on) who can stamp his authority on a game like this it's Michael Carrick"

The game always seems to pass him by

Gerrard aka superman

He tries to be the hero and his international career is a failure

Everyone has blamed the managers moving him around in the past but

In the last two major tournaments he has played in CM

His legs have gone and is finished

He was chasing shadows@The Euros

The only thing which is saving him the fact he has a dead ball delivery in his locker.

/

I can't rate pick one over the other out of this three mentioned but if it was Scholes being discussed then it will be a different matter altogether

Never

West Ham dominated the 1st half

Liverpool were literally playing with ten men

Gerrard was hobbling/passenger

He scored that goal in extra time to deny West Ham the trophy

That's not carrying a team

Or single handedly

Like I said man was a passenger

It was another game which passed him by

Messi's record of assists and goals is a madness but he doesn't carry Barca whatsoever
