Major League Soccer (MLS) fans the continent over banded together to thank Steven Gerrard for derailing the LA Galaxy season before unceremoniously leaving the team less than a month after getting knocked out of the playoffs while offering less of a positive impact than Rafa Marquez did for Red Bull New York.
"Thanks, Gerrard! Next could you stop by Tom Brady's house and offer to play kicker for the Patriots?" said Seattle Sounders and Seahawks fan Reggie Holding.
"What a great guy! He managed to kill LA's 2015 season just like he killed Liverpool's seasons for the last 9 years," said Diana Gutierrez of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The Nutmeg News spoke with the director of the Las Vegas Institute of Luck and she had the following to say, "Gerrard is what we call, in the industry, a cooler. He steps up to a team and immediately brings everything else around him down. LA can consider themselves lucky that he isn't coming back to their team as they will likely have a good shot at winning MLS Cup in 2016. Should Mr Gerrard want a position after soccer, I'm sure the Tropicana would love to have him as a blackjack dealer. He is one of the few people in the world that could get 5 people around him to just start automatically losing."
The Nutmeg News spoke with former LA Galaxy goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts about this blame and he said the following, "At least they don't realize it was actually my fault."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Gerrard attempts to deal Blackjack on the weekends in Blackpool.
