Raheem Sterling

Recommended Posts

To put in the performance he did against the champions, on his full debut in the league, is worthy of praise.

 

I'm sure Rodgers will look after him and use him in the right way, but genuinely excited about his prospects.

 

Not wanting to put any players down but there are some senior members of the squad who could learn from his courage, determination and confidence.

 

A genuine threat on the flanks with pace and ability to carry the ball, and beat a man - something we've not had for as long as I can remember.

 

Big match temperament will not be one of his weaknesses, if today is any indication of his future development.

Fecking hell. Rodgers doesn't feck about does he?

 

Reminded me of the interview where it looked like he was gonna nut the bloke for sticking the microphone to close to him.

 

Wasn't it at start of US tour where Rodgers was saying Sterling was still too young to be expected to figure in first team and maybe would benefit from being sent out on loan? He must have really shone in training since to be given his full debut just a few weeks later against City and the kid put in a great performance, the sign of plenty more to come hopefully. Rodgers seems very assured and authoritative in that clip too, 'tis all looking good.

I do think he's got fantastic potential - speed, good technique, and looks like he has a good football brain already... but also weary - so easy for youngsters to come in, and they have no expectations and therefore shine... then the hype takes over, and they start going backwards... still think he has so much more quality than any other youngster we've seen coming through in recent years though.

Sterling worked his backside off defensively yesterday, that's the difference. Was amazed he lasted the full 90 but he did it in style and still looked dangerous at the end - bet he's feeling it today! Love the Rodgers clip, he's got some charisma hasn't he?

Looked quality.... I really like the kid. Bearing in mind he played a major part in a big occasion a few days ago he did really well up against such strength for prolonged periods.

I hope Downing actually realised that he's not granted a start from now on...

 

Anyway I spoke to my Manc mate who said over on their forums they have started to praise him and acknowledge his quality too... Which is a rarity, they tend to ignore quality due to the shirt they wear.... Some good comments here:

Januzaj will be comfortably better than him. Still a very good prospect.

My biggest fear is that it looks like our best attacking outlay is a 17 Year old midget.

 

What a silly comment. Like Barcelona's biggest fear was their best attacking outlay was a 17 year old midget when Messi was that age? What relevance is his size if he's talented? And our best 'attacking outlay' is still clearly Suarez anyway. Hopefully Sterling can help focus some attention away from him.

I tweeted yesterday that I'm still to be convinced by him.

He has pace but I'm not sure he has much else.

He played well yesterday but faded a bit second half.

 

He'll surprise a few defenders this season but needs to develop more tricks to not rely on just pace to beat his man.

Defenders will wise up to him. Also, his crossing/final ball really needs work, this may come in time as he gets older.

I just don't want to burden him
