Okay, if you’re going to smash any footballer in the back of the head, nasty little Michael Brown – who has plenty of previous – is not a bad choice, but whoever the victim, this was a very dangerous (not to mention thuggish) act by Liverpool’s captain.
Still, it looks like Gerrard will get away with it, as he wasn’t shown even a yellow card by ref Stuart Atwell. Should he get away with it? No, of course not. It’s clearly an assault on Brown.
