Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard played his last-ever game at Anfield five years ago today.
Crystal Palace didn’t read the script ahead of kick-off though, as the Reds lost the game and Stevie had to bow out on a relative low.
But the lows the club went through during the mid-2010s set us up for a successful end to the decade, and a very positive future.
Even five years on, Gerrard’s Anfield farewell – including that speech – is an absolute tear-jerker.
The man means so much to us all, and the universal respect he warrants was made evident by the Palace fans applauding him in the away end.
