As the incumbent Emperor of Liverpool, Steven Gerrard can do absolutely anything he wants. That includes, but is not limited to, making Charlie Adam crouch down and act as a human foot rest, giving Andy Carroll painful wedgies in the training ground canteen, and interrupting journalists when they are in the middle of interviews with rival managers.
Following Liverpool's 1-0 Carling Cup victory at Eastlands yesterday, the Scouse overlord was involved in a tunnel spat with Roberto Mancini. In a post-match interview, the Man City boss took exception to Glen Johnson's two-footed injury time lunge when a passing Stevie G waded in to point out the hypocrisy in light of Vincent Kompany's recent adventures. The indignant manager then roared something completely unintelligible, no doubt leaving Gerrard confused and frightened. Either he's really angry, or he's emphatically showing the goalscoring midfielder what the teacher in Charlie Brown cartoons would sound like in Italian.
