Yes it is starting to sink in that the man who has been the face and heart of Liverpool for the last 17 years, this is it for him.
For many people Stevie G is one of the reason they became a Liverpool fan. For some like myself he is the reason I fell in love with this game we watch every week and invest so much time and emotion in.
It is hard to put into words what Steven Gerrard has done for Liverpool Football Club and the game of soccer.
My best response right now is: Thank You. I sincerely thank you Steven Gerrard. You have provided some amazing memories over the years that myself and millions of others will never forget. The goals, the passes, the celebrations. Thank You.
So even though this season didn’t turn out the way we wanted it to, come out to Union Jack Pub this Saturday perfect kickoff time of 12:30pm and celebrate with all of the Indy Reds the last home match Stevie G will have at Anfield.
Since it will be a packed house at UJ’s we will be able to take a quick video and send it to NBC for their montage they are looking to do next week for his last EPL match.
If you are on our email list you know what we are talking about. If you don’t I will post the email we(and the other supporters clubs) received from one of the producers at NBCSN. If you can please make your own personal videos also to send in so they can get a lot of content to make a video to send off Stevie G from us American fans.
Hey there Indy Reds!! Below is a message that one of the producers of the NBCSN broadcast crew sent us. I posted this on the Facebook page and we had some responses and ideas.Apparently they didn’t get to many people that actually sent them anything so they aren’t going to do anything for this Saturday but they want us and everyone from the USA to get something too them so they can do it for Stevie G’s final match next Sunday.So read the email below, there is a link to send in content to them.We will try and do something on Saturday during the match to submit it and also since Indy Eleven is home Saturday even something outside there too. But on your own if you want to make a short video go for it. The more people that submit things the better so there is more content for the feature.
Chairman Official Liverpool Supporters Club of Indianapolis
With Steven Gerrard’s final match at Anfield set for Saturday May 16th NBC Sports will be putting together a fan based feature that we hope supporters groups and individuals alike will participate in.
This short-form feature will be part of our continuing ‘I Was There’ series, which is comprised of user-generated footage that fans shoot on cell phones/Go Pros/etc. For this particular feature we are looking for Liverpool fans to take short (15-20 sec) selfie-videos of themselves sharing their thoughts, memories and well-wishes on Gerrard and his legacy at Liverpool. We’re also interested in capturing a group chant on Gerrard (please contact me directly if your supporters groups is up for this).
If you’re interested in participating please send me the content by this Sunday night, 11p, ET. There are two ways to get the footage to me: 1) a QuickTime via email; or 2) by uploading to our FTP site (see attached). If you choose to participate please follow the following guidelines:
- Name: include your name/group name in the email/uploaded file so we can properly identify you
- Lights Up: shoot in good light – either outdoors or inside with the lights up (especially in bars)
- Selfie Video: best taken by holding your own i-Phone at arm’s length (horizontally), looking into the lens and talking
- Shoot Video in Landscape: please hold phone horizontally, not vertically
- Avoid Profanity: if signing the Gerrard song please swap the word “shirt” for “shite”
Any questions or concerns please contact me directly. Please feel free to forward this email to other groups/Liverpool fans and thanks so much and look forward to hearing from you!
I know a few folks have sent in some videos already, great job! If you’re an Indy Red and didn’t get that email then you aren’t in our listings so let us know your email address so we can get you added.
Last bit of Stevie G news, he had is final home press conference this morning. Some great quotes in it.
In other news: Our roster is set for the Union Jack Pub Supporters Cup.
These guys will be representing LFC Indy and will be trying to bring the cup home to Indy Anfield with our name on it. Come out and support your Indy Reds and also the best soccer pub in Indy Union Jack Pub. 10am start time at the new Indy Eleven Futsal Court at Rhodius Park. It will be a fun time, plus there is going to be an after party at UJ’s for the 3pm Indy XI kickoff v Ottawa.
Still looking for nominations for Chairman, Treasurer & Secretary for our Board. Currently we have had only one nomination and that is for Nile to be Chairman again. Really need those other two spots filled up. They are important to helping our Supporters Club grow more and for us to get more stuff done. Please if you are interested email us. As Treasurer really you just handle the Pay-Pal account and help with any transactions we will do throughout the year. Secretary is a little bigger of a responsibility as you will have access to all of our social media channels and will help post things and respond and help with the site. Chairman will also help with all of the responsibilities too. Just good to have multiple people on the board to make decisions and to help answer any and all questions and concerns and keep everyone updated.
Look forward to seeing everyone out at UJ’s this weekend then that evening at the Indy Eleven match.
