Er... not quite right there, I'm afraid.

Huyton is in the borough of Knowsley, which is outside of the city of Liverpool boundary, but still within the county of Merseyside (just as Bootle is part of Sefton, not Liverpool). Inhabitants of Sefton and Knowsley still consider themselves part of Liverpool though. St Helens is further out again, but still in Merseyside, and still nearer to Liverpool city centre than to Manchester city centre.

It's not an intentional slight against Gerrard - you'll notice the authors didn't actually include any footballers, perhaps because they don't know much about football. But you can suggest an update to the entry, or post information in this forum that then becomes an extension of the entry.

100s of years of Lancastrian history up in smoke with the creation of the modern metropolitan counties...great.
