'He's top of the league'

Raheem Sterling
Proof that we continue to overlook the human side of footballers. As we watched Sterling miss two glorious chances before scoring his two goals on Saturday, we wondered whether the discussions over his composure under pressure would resurface.

And then you find out that, on the morning of the game, Sterling was subjected to a physical and verbal racist attack, and rather than criticise him for those finishes you applaud him for even having the resilience to take part in the game.

The kid is 23, for goodness sake. He’s been abused for wanting to leave a football club and he has been vilified by a section of the media that would prefer to ignore that their words and editorial stance play a part in incidents like the one on Saturday morning. The drip feeding of racially motivated treatment only emboldens those who wish to express their abhorrent views.

And now Sterling comes out the other side smelling of roses and as a key part of one of the greatest ever Premier League teams. It isn’t bias to want him to succeed and rub those mucky tabloid noses in the dirt; it’s human nature.

Absolutely BD - he has withstood the most abhorent abuse fuelled by the media's decision to pander to the scouse masses whose fundamental insecurity about their own self-worth and sense of entitled superiority took a massive hit when the lad decided he wised to pursue his career elsewhere. They have contributed in no small part to the creation of a climate where moron's, unable to deal with his successful demonstration of his talent, feel that it is in order to abuse and attack the guy in public.

I trust that he is getting the utmost support fromthe club and he needs to be shown unwavering support by the fans. Just as KDB showed on Saturday when he stuck it to Spurs after the cowardly assault by the despicable baby Alli, he needs to continue his progress as one of the country's brightest talents - keep sticking them in the onion bag Raheem!

I don't know if the scum that did this were caught but I very much hope so and that they are severely dealt with.
What's the world coming to FFS?

Just as I wrote that ^
an arrest has been made. Hardly an ignorant kid, either.

Let's hope they can make any charges stick.

Odds on the offender being either a rag or disgruntled Liverpool 'fan'?

Fabulous article in todays Times re Stirling under the heading 'Superb Sterling Must Be Respected, Not Persecuted'.

It begins 'Raheem Stirling is the most important sports person in the country...' and closes with 'Sterling's good. He's Englands' best. He deserves respect'.

Quality journalism and good to see his form this season getting the appreciation it deserves.

Convicted football hooligan jailed for attack on Raheem.

Not long enough, considering his appalling past.

Here's hoping he gets an 18 stone black cell mate that's looking for a wife.

Actually not a surprise at all. Hope he enjoyed the rags getting dumped out of the cup last night.

Another good read on Sterling from probably my favourite UK journalist, I don't always agree with what he says but I love the way he writes.

A good read indeed. About time someone attempted to redress the balance (still a long way that go though)

Thanks for posting

Barney does have a way with words and if Raheem wants to buy his mum a house I say good on him!
