I preferred Lampard to Gerrard. Slightly different roles. Lampard did better defensive work in that Chelsea system and without looking it up I think he scored more goals. A proper goal machine.

Gerrard in his prime had a free role. Almost like a striker. He was nowhere near as good in deeper midfield positions that we saw him play in Houllier and Rodgers era. He had mistakes in him. Lacked composure of Alonso and didn't protect the defence like Machereno could.

Carrick and the older version of Scholes far better midfielders in front of the defence than Gerrard imo.

Best prem player imo has probably been De Bruyne imo. Few others like Suarez or Spurs version of Bale. Henry too. 

I think the majority of the best have been non English players.

For me Gerrard had his weaknesses and certainly not a player that could play anywhere.

That might be the case but Gerrard was some player. I can remember him coming on as a sub for Liverpool when they weren’t struggling against some team in Europe. He transformed the game game and lifted the whole team. That take some doing for a single player.

SG is unproven and will be expensive as will those he might want to bring in.

Let's back something more certain for one year.....Warnock.

He would cost a lot less, spend a lot less and would be much less of a gamble.

He doesn't like managing in the Premier League so a parting of the waves thereafter would be mutually acceptable.

Are you suggesting we get Warnock for promotion...and then Moses to consolidate?
