Steven Gerrard would be wise to avoid Twitter for the next few days after his costly slip against Chelsea was endlessly mocked by the social media brigade.

The result was a storm of memes mocking the Liverpool captain.

Even our own resident photoshop wizard could not resist getting in on the act.

It all made an interview he gave with one national newspaper earlier this week seem all the more unfortunate.

It seems harsh that we live in a world where Gerrard is still without a Premier League medal when you consider some of the people who do have one in their collection.

Certainly you won't hear any Liverpool fans give out about Gerrard such has been his amazing service to the club. Iago Aspas though has not built up such credit and his cameo certainly didn't go unnoticed...for the wrong reasons.

It was just a bad day for Liverpool all around.

Steady...

But if Liverpool fans did want to irrationally blame somebody how about this guy?

You have to give Jose Mourinho some credit though. He got his tactics spot on.

Nobody compares to him really, well not quite nobody....

Zing!

Back again soon.

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

  • No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
