Gerrard Fed Up with Liverpool's Failings

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard fired a warning to the club's management that his patience is running out with Liverpool's repeated domestic failings, admitting that even if the Anfield club delivered the Champions League, 2008 would still be branded as a failure. In an interview with LFC magazine, Gerrard said, "I have been looking at the league table and it hurts to see where we are at the moment. I am pretty gutted every time I see the gap between us and Arsenal, because we believed we had the players to challenge this time. But I am getting tired of saying the same thing over and over again."

"We can't keep talking about next season all the time," the Liverpool skipper added. "I am 27 now and I don't want to be talking about next season for Liverpool when I am 32. We've got the stadium, the fans, the manager and the players to compete for the Premier League. It is the one we wanted more than any other trophy available to us. I am a Liverpool fan and believe the league is the most important trophy."

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez will surely take note of Gerrard's comments, especially when he repeatedly points to the club's success in Europe when forced to defend his record. "The Champions League can be harder to win in some ways," said Gerrard, "but if you asked the 41,000 at the Inter Milan game to choose between the title and European Cup, the majority would want to see the league back at Anfield."
