English Premiership

Gerrard up and running

LONDON, November 17 – Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard is on course for a return to action against Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday after recovering from a groin injury.STEVEN_GERRARD_1_The England midfielder used the international break last weekend to further rest the injury and he now believes that he has put it behind him.

"I felt very tired after the (Birmingham) game as I wasn’t really ready to return. I’d done very little training in the three weeks beforehand," Gerrard said.

"It took me two or three days to recover from that game but I have spent the past week doing strengthening work.

"I’m feeling a lot better now. I’m looking forward to the weekend. There’s no mental hurdle to cross.

"I’ve had a problem in my groin that has taken a while to get over, but I’m just relieved the second injection seems to have done the trick.

"It’s a case of so far so good and the aim now is to make sure I get a good week’s training under my belt so I’m ready for the game with City."

Gerrard is anxious to help Liverpool reignite their campaign.

"Some of the lowest points in my career have come about when I have had to miss big games for Liverpool and England through injury," he told the club website.

"It’s never easy when you have to sit out games against Manchester United or trips away from home in the Champions League.

"If the lads are winning games and doing well, it makes the pain a bit easier so obviously the last couple of weeks have been extra frustrating.

"But I’m feeling good now, a lot stronger than before and it’s just a question of getting my match sharpness back now. That is the most important thing."

    I love Fogo Gaucho…its better than Pampa Grill… the service there sucks. You need to do a review so that they wake up.

        they would be cowards if they refused. And anyone who refuses to let Susan Wong sample, is not really worth visiting. Great pics!

    Thanks for your interesting article. Being a “gaucho” is embracing a particular life style of the “pampas”, which are the vast and fertile areas of southern Brazil. The “churrasco” (barbecue) is their gastronomic reference, certainly due to the high quality of their soil. In the past, gauchos had no frontier, travelled freely between Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina pampas region. The churrasco is characterized by a service of a variety of meat cuts, mostly beef, but also chicken and lamb, served in skewers on a rotative basis up to the satisfaction of the client. I think a good translation for “Fogo Gaucho” would be “Cowboy Bonefine”, as when the gauchos were in the wild areas, herding their cattle, they would set up a bonfire and prepare their churrasco and drink “mate”.
