Steven Gerrard's individual highlights for Liverpool during the 2005/2006 season shows just how important he was for their success.


The Reds had won the Champions League in the 2004/2005 campaign and a large part of that was down to captain Gerrard.

But the 05/06 season saw Gerrard step it up to yet another level and deliver arguably his finest run of form.

He scored 10 goals in the Premier League as Liverpool finished third in the table, while single-handedly winning the FA Cup final vs West Ham with a monster performance.

The end of the season saw Gerrard named PFA Players' Player of the Year ahead of Didier Drogba and Wayne Rooney.

He was also the first Liverpool since John Barnes in 1988 to scoop up the individual award.

Many believe the England international was operating at another level to his teammates and deserved to achieve much more.

Another compilation titled 'Let Down' shows what he was providing in terms of goalscoring opportunities.

Gerrard only ended the season with 13 assists but just four of those came in the league - a criminally low number for the talent he possessed.

One fan said: "He was a right midfielder this season and got 35 G/As, incredible considering he wasn't even in his best position."

Another added: "I swear he doesn't get the respect he deserves. Gerrard needs to be in the Goat tier of best midfielders ever."

While a third stated: "Generational player! How many midfielders playing today modelled themselves on Stevie?!?!"

Gerrard's performance at Wembley has seen many call it 'The Gerrard Final'.

An assist and two goals, including a 91st minute winner, has seen Gerrard take all the accolades for that acheivement.

The man himself told FourFourTwo however that he doesn't like all the credit going to him.

He begun: "I've been asked many times what my best ever display was - it was probably this.

"I had a perfect day with two goals and an assist. I'm flattered when people call it 'The Gerrard Final' but I do think that's disrespectful to everybody else.

"It's a team game - it was just my day."
