Dear oh dear! Just when things were going so well for us at Liverpool, this has to happen.
Top of the league at Christmas, three points clear of Chelsea and a brilliant 5-1 victory away to Newcastle, when disaster strikes.
Our Captain, our inspiration gets into a bar-room brawl, spends the night in jail and is up on a charge of assault.
The prospect of Steven Gerrard spending time in jail, just when we have our best chance in nineteen years of winning back the title is unthinkable.
I can only hope he gets off with community service and a fine or our title assault will have ended with his.
