Last summer Arsene Wenger made an audacious attempt to sign Liverpool`s (now of Barcelona) Luis Suarez for £40m+1, it goes without saying that the transfer never came off (thank the lord our Dennis) and Steven Gerrard likes to think he played some part in that (he likes to think he`s played some part in everything).
Gerrard has been quoted in the Telegraph as saying he told Suarez he was "too good for Arsenal".
He said "Last summer when he was out in the cold and training on his own that`s the conversation I had with him. I said, 'Don`t go to Arsenal`.
"I would have been really sad and disappointed to see Luis go to Arsenal. With all due respect to them, I said to him that he was too good for Arsenal. I said if you score 30 goals for us and win the PFA Player of the Year, the press Player of the Year - I knew he was going to win them - I told him Real or Barcelona will come for you."
When you put aside Liverpool`s often times devastating attack, and it was, for all that, they still only finished 5 points in front of Arsenal (and without any Silverware (yes I am still beating that drum, we were beaten with the "how long since you last won anything" drum for yonks, so I`m milking it)).
Now had Suarez signed for Arsenal I`m 99% sure we would have been more than five points better off and Liverpool would definitely have been more than 5 points worse off, so by extension if Suarez is "too good" for Arsenal (he isn`t) then it makes perfect sense that he was too good for Liverpool! (he was).
