Cups will make season a success - Gerrard
Captain Steven Gerrard believes reaching the FA Cup final will provide some compensation for Liverpool under-performing this season.
The hopes of Champions League qualification have disappeared after just three wins in 2012, but Liverpool still have the chance to add to February's Carling Cup triumph, their first trophy for six years. And despite coming up short in the Barclays Premier League, Gerrard believes two finals in one season will represent progress. But first they have to get past Everton in Saturday's semi-final. "Everyone's frustrated with the league position, we won't hide that fact," the England midfielder said. "The simple facts are our league campaign hasn't been good enough. We're all frustrated and the players have under-delivered in the league, all of us. "Not just the new signings, not just certain individuals, all of us have under-delivered in the league but we've done fantastically in the cups. We had three targets at the beginning of the season. One was top four and then we wanted to have two cup runs and I think we've done fantastically well. "There's one more big hurdle to get over and to deliver two cup finals would be an unbelievable achievement. I think if this team, this squad, delivers two major cup finals in one season, it can turn the season into a success."
