There was a game on TV when Tony Pulis was still at Stoke and there's no way in hell you can convince me that no-one playing could hear him.

Bit of both.

I'm sympathetic to the idea of keeping Gerrard going as long as possible and he's still a class act with the ball, but off the ball as a defensive midfielder he's not really up to it...
