Liverpool’s terrible Wembley Stadium fact: Gerrard keen to break the curse

September 23, 2011 By Angela Asante
Statistics related to the Wembley Stadium simply expose an odd truth about Liverpool. Some may even call it “shameful”…
The Merseyside Reds have a jinx to break and “Captain Planet” is keen to help his team reach the new Wembley at last. Manchester United can boast of having made 11 trips to the new home of English football even though there have been mixed results. Chelsea, meanwhile, have played at Wembley 9 times already since the stadium opened 4 years ago.

Take Liverpool’s local rivals Everton and check through their records. You will find that the Toffees have featured at Wembley a couple of times. Interestingly, as many as 60 different clubs have entered the new Wembley stadium. But out of this long list, the name of Liverpool is nowhere to be found!

The Merseyside Reds, who last won a trophy in 2006 by lifting the FA Cup, seem well prepared this season to clinch a domestic cup. Winning the English Premier League may be nothing more than just a dream, considering the strength of titleholders Manchester United, Manchester City and even Chelsea.

However, there’s the FA Cup at stake and as of now, the Carling Cup looks to be Liverpool’s best option for silverware. They've now put a few troubles behind by overcoming the tricks of minnows Exeter City and Brighton in the Second and Third Rounds respectively.

The way to reach Wembley, though, remains long. But Steven Gerrard, who made his return from injury in midweek, is keeping his head up and holding fast to the club’s ambitions.

“We haven't been to a major cup final for a long time so we've got to take every cup seriously. Especially when there's no Europe, that makes it a bit easier for us to put stronger sides out,” Gerrard told the press.

“Kenny has assembled a fantastic squad and we've got a couple of good players for each position so even when he mixes it up or rests people, we've still got a strong side.

“When you play for Liverpool it's all about winning trophies. That's why we've got to take every cup competition seriously. That was the message from the manager before we went out at Brighton.

“He said we want to be one step closer to a major cup final. And being captain, I want nothing more than to go to Wembley with the rest of the lads and lift a cup.”

Can anyone see Steven Gerrard fulfilling his dream this season? That would be good news for Liverpool's team and supporters who presently receive jeers from rivals on a constant basis...
