Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 12 months, you’ll know that Steven Gerrard is currently playing out the final days of his career in a white LA Galaxy shirt.
The club legend made the jump to the states last summer in the hope that he might finally be able to add a league winners’ medal to his already impressive collection of honours.

The geographical location of the city means almost all of their 17 away games involve a serious slog across the country – and the MLS is the only major sports league in the USA that does not travel charter.
According to an article on the LA Times, the team will fly more than 38,000 miles in 2016, farther than 22 of the countries baseball teams travelled. Keep in mind that the MLB season is 162 games long.
