Photo Call: Steven Geriatric

Liverpool’s long awaited fancy dress Christmas party for 2007 took place last night (yes, in 2008), but it was well worth the re-scheduled wait. No idea what the deal was with the other holiday party they had – it’s said they held off because the Gerrard home was burgled, or perhaps it was just a lay-low after the Man U fiasco.

Steven Gerrard went all out – and all liver spots – for his brilliant pensioners costume.  Love the effort and Lord knows we would kill for a photo of him in this getup embracing his wife Alex. 
Fernando Torres went as…. Fernando Torres.

More pics at the Daily Mail including Crouchie continuing his bird theme of 06 and Daniel Agger (hottie or nottie?) dressed as a punk rocker.

    Well done Stevie G! Forget sex on legs, he’s sex on wheels tongue wink
    And as for Nando, well if your that hot why would u want to cover up?  grin xXx

  2. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    OMG!! These pictures are just the best, you gotta love the players (the ones who did make the effort) for their sense of humour and fun! They wer sooo worth the wait.
    Aurelio has never been one of my favs but after seeing him dressed as Sporty Spice well that takes the love factor up a hell of alot! HAHA.
    Oh and I see Xabi is an Only Fools and Horses fan, hmmmm well I guess everyone has a flaw, ill just have to learn to live with it.  Im sure I could forgive him with a quick glimpse <read very long pervy stare> at his thighs   tongue wink

    hhahah, my friend calls him fatt and old when he plays football.. i wonder what they say when they see this.. hahaha :p

    ^^ did not read comments and sees that AnnaD has the same sentiments.

    Well, this just goes to show why we love this man so. *sigh*

  5. The Fourth Official says:

    Elise, it really is worth a read.  Just bear in mind that it has been edited slightly (under court order) in the newest edition. Because of the court case against Roy when he admitted that his revenge tackle on Alf Haaland had been premeditated – the FA forced him to edit the infamous passage:  “I’d waited long enough. I f*cking hit him hard. The ball was there (I think). Take that you c*nt. And don’t ever stand over me sneering about fake injuries.“ The language is a bit tamer in the new edition.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />  However, the flavour <ahem> still comes shining through.

  6. uneditedmara says:

    So this is how my future husband will look like when we grow old together … MAD PROPS for the costume. *bows down at Stevie’s feet*

  7. Elise says:

    I really hate editing, at least that kind.  I want to know what the person actually said.  I mean, a well placed f**k can change everything…em, I mean the WORD ‘f**k’ in a sentence can change the whole sentence, although the first part certainly *is* true!!! LOL Ah the beauty of language!

  8. The Fourth Official says:

    And by “fantasy football league”, I wasn’t referring to anything perverted, so get your minds out of the gutter.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  9. The Fourth Official says:

    Nando is cuter than a Webkin, and needs only to wear the true red of Man United to be perfection.  The only Scouse I’ve ever played in my fantasy football league.

  10. Elise says:

    Ah, there’s always more to the story isn’t there. I’ve seen Roy’s book before, but never picked it up.  Now I think I will.  I’m suddenly very intrigued.  And I might be inclined to give Roy the benefit of the doubt since I can think of another certain someone who’s played through pain quite often and might have let his temper slip once or twice. wink

  11. Elise says:

    Fourth, thanks for the link.  I’ve just spent about 15 minutes watching various Keano vids on YouTube and I feel I understand their dynamic a bit better.  I’m also pretty clear that if this whole thing happens, I’ll be waving at you from the Newcastle seats where I’ll be wearing a Shearer jersey!  I know you love Keano, but damn….. 

    AND most importantly, after seeing all those vids, I don’t think I want him in my bedroom.  Okay, wait..no need to be hasty and overdo it here.  LOL!  So anyway, what had Shearer done to him to provoke that? I admit this was before my hardcore footie-obsessing days began, so maybe I’m missing the bigger picture.

  12. The Fourth Official says:

    Roy admits in his autobiography that it was just a stupid incident.  Roy was playing in a lot of pain that season, and United was not doing great.  They were in injury time in a tight match, and Alan was trying to run down the clock by interfering with Roy’s throw-in.  Roy got mad, threw the ball at Alan’s chest, and the two exchanged pleasantries.  Roy tried to grab him by the throat, got red carded, Alan smirked and told him to f off, and Roy went at him.  Roy’s book is an excellent read, by the way – it won many accolades when it was published, for its unvarnished look at the game.  And Roy is as honest about himself in it as he is about the game.

  13. J says:

    I thought the OAP-Stevie wasn’t really him…but it is! At least Nando hasn’t brought out the lavender jumper again. *shudder*

  14. elika says:

    so this is how he’s gonnna look when he’s 80, not bad AT ALL.

  15. The Fourth Official says:

    Doesn’t AS own a pub now?  Maybe he’s afraid to come out from behind the bar.  And since Keano apparently doesn’t drink anything stronger now than mango and passion fruit herbal tea, their paths aren’t likely to cross.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />  I live in hope though. 


  16. Rusty says:

    Daniel Agger = hottie.

    The only Liverpool player I find good-looking, ‘tho he is way, way too young for me.

  17. Elise says:

    Fourth, I think you’re doomed to failure when you suggest this crowd get our minds out of the gutter!  Some of us have a permanent residency there!  Personally, I’ve always had tons of fun with the idea of “fantasy football league”…

    Oh, and by the way, I’m over my 15 minute ‘thing’ for McFadden.  I saw him on Sky in an interview…and was not impressed.  It’s weird to see him at Birmingham now.  He’s so ‘Everton’.
    And what is up with Shearer and Keegan?  I was getting psyched for that whole ‘death stare’ meeting you talked about with Keano and now it seems unlikely to happen.

  18. LoveLamps says:

    Yes I am giving props to Stevie G, and we all know how I feel about him.  This is great!

    As for El Nino, Ladies please give him a break. When you are that hot, it’s hard to find clothing that does not burn to the touch of your skin, much less a costume!

  19. Jenny says:

    hahhaha, omg.. it so didnt look like gerrard.. i was like.. WHO THE HECK IS THAT?? hahahha.. i feel sorry for crouch.. i think he should get his costume made.. hahah. but i think the whole birdy thing is cute.. hahahaha.. they really did all did a really awesome job

  20. Angie says:

    Nando, what a party pooper =(

  21. The Fourth Official says:

    Victoria:  here’s a few of his tats.


  22. The Fourth Official says:

    I have to say that Riise doesn’t pack much of a codpiece as Batman.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/hmm.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="hmmm" style="border:0;" />

  23. carly says:

    Kewell is the best! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    Perhaps Torres’ invitation got lost…in translation! duh

  24. The Fourth Official says:

    I don’t believe that’s Stevie.  Really?

    Despite the odd timing (WTF?), it sounds like fun – a safe middle ground somewhere between Arsenal’s boring-ass “let’s drink lemonade and visit sick people in the hospital” Christmas do, and Man United’s rampant orgy/skank/drunk fest.

    Agger is a nottie, I’m afraid.  My love Nemanja Vidic is the standard against which all central defenders must measure themselves.  Nemanja puts the laughter in manslaughter.

  25. Victoria says:

    Dan’s sooo hot!!
    He’s got a killer body, which I, by the way, think you ought to worship as much as I… His bodyart is just another thing I love about him..
    tihi.. he’s got 3+ tats.. and I’d sure like to know where…

  26. linz says:

    wow i am impressed…that totally fooled me.

  27. cassie says:

    they all (well minus torres and i few others i heard did not dress up) have such a great sense of humour and obviously do not care what the media/on-lookers/lovers/haters/etc. think about them, they were there to have a great time as a team, and unlike the man u party, without 100 nasty girls hanging around in tight clothing trying to pull a footballer for the night.  congrats to liverpool for having fun and NOT ending the night with a police order.

  28. Robin says:

    CLASSIC! How funny – they look like they all had a fabulous, fun, and hilarious time. Stevie’s costume is by far the best – I would have been fooled as well!

  29. Sarah x says:

    Steven Gerrard Looks A Picture!

  30. April says:

    My reaction to this post. “Who the h*ll is that old man?… OMFG IT’S STEVIE.“

    I love Crouchy. He’s 6’9 feet of AWESOME.

  31. cheryl bites says:

    Awww, poor Crouchy, he couldn’t find an outfit to fit! The legs on that costume are about a foot too short!

    Gerrard’s get-up isn’t bad, but Carra wins by a mile IMHO. Now that’s just scary.

  32. jen says:

    And that, is why Stevie G. will always be my favorite.

  33. AnnaD says:

    Stevie is, of course, brilliant…nice to see what he would look like if we were going to grow old together…

    but poor Harry K’s knees—-they look like they’ve been through a wringer!!! 

    and i’m not one to fancy Continental men (i have an English fetish), but Fabio Aurelio is cute cute cute

  34. Paula says:

    Great pics..well done the Liverpool players! (boo hiss Fernando!)..Steven Gerrard looks incredibly realistic. I bet Alex is shitting herself though, because thats whats Steven is going to look like in about 40 years time! LOL

  35. Malin says:

    I sat staring at the pic of Stevie with mu mouth wide open for several minute, gosh, I could almost not believe it was him! Brilliant!

    And Nando. One word. Boooring!

    I had been waiting for these pictures, and he turns up as…nothing? Booo!

  36. xX Jade Xx says:

    L0l sooo funny, they all look great, esp. stevie. He’s still hot as an oap xD

  37. Elise says:

    Wow.  You’ve got to admire the commitment there.  And Stevie gets cool points from me for putting aside vanity to pull off that fabulous costume.  I do wonder if Alex is having some kind of meltdown right now, though.  I think I might if I was her!  Enjoy that youthfulness…and hair- NOW, Alex! Also, Stevie is looking quite nice in his leather jacket and jeans in the Daily Mail link.

  38. lose that girl says:

    Nice to see that Harry Kewell devised a costume where he could showcase his legs. Love it!

    So much better than my beloved Man Utd’s skankapalooza.

  39. Becca x says:

    For A Moment There I Didnt Believe That Was Stevie..He Looks A Little Different As An OAP! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/raspberry.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />
    Looks Like They Had a Laugh!

  40. paris says:

    Stevies costume is by far the best loool!!!!

  41. brandy says:

    I wonder if Alex ran out the door seeing what Stevie will look like in a few decades! I LOVE that he went all out! And I am not a Stevie fan…

    Boooooooooo Torres. You’re lame.

    I’m with you Kaya…

  42. kaya says:

    Steve’s costume is simply amazing.
    I think the Osama Bin Laden costume is about as well-advised as Prince Harry’s attempt at humor with the SS costume.
