Steven Gerrard teamtalk: ‘It’s none of your business’, Steven Gerrard tells Geoff Shreeves – Mirror Online

Bravo Mr. Gerrard. Some moments should only belong to the people who were
there to experience them in person. People need to learn again how to place value on their experiences for what they are – in that moment,  not while thinking about what a great share, post, tweet, tag or selfie it would make.

Stop shouting. Even online customers hate pushy sales tactics.
