That's...none of our business. Such is the case, though, as a journalist was overheard at training asking a press officer to point out who was Gerrard and who was Robbie Keane while the former Premier League stars stretched. You're not in Liverpool, anymore, Gerrard. [Goal, h/t Dirty Tackle] Read more MLS news on
