Liverpool star in hot water over nightclub incident

Steven Gerrard has been charged with assault and affray over a glass-throwing incident in a Southport nightclub. The Liverpool skipper and five other men were arrested after a fight broke out which left a 34-year-old DJ with facial injuries. He has been bailed to appear before magistrates on 23 January.

    Have the media been got at or is it just their bizarre love affair with all teams red?
    How come there has been no teeth gnashing on the subject? There was no end of hoo hah with Joey Barton, Johnathon Woodgate et al. I e-mailed words to the effect of these to George Galloway on Talk Sport..the silence was defeaning!

    I’ve been a bit surprised at just how positive the reaction has been. Of course everyone deserves to be innocent until proven guilty, but most of the media seemed to have even shunned impartiality in favour of a pro-Gerrard stance.
