Gerrard's best position is Central Attacking Midfielder. Where he played in 2008-09 and was fantastic there.
His most profilic season to date, which bettered his record of 05-06 season where he played RM.
I think Gerrard needs freedom to roam around burst forward, etc..and hence disciplined CM role limits his impact on the game. Now that he is old, he should play there as he's lost some of his burst of pace to play the high energy CAM role though.
Thing is, in 05-06 we were more of a 4-4-2 team with Crouch and Cisse and if we are playing 4-4-2, then Gerrard-Alonso as 2 CMs lack defensive balance, and hence Gerrard was moved outwide and was a success there.
Mind you, don't judge Sissoko on his Juve period, he was an absolute beast for us in 05-06 season when we barely conceded a goal and went on a 10 game winning steak. Sadly, he got an eye injury and was never the same player after that.
While RM is not Gerrard's position that's very different from suggesting that he is/was average when playing on the right. He was still fantastic there and a top player with a huge impact, he simply wasn't in his favoured role.
