The point I’m trying to make about Sterling is he wouldn’t have changed us. I don’t believe he is world class but then again, I have very high standards of world class (a world class player should be able to get into any team in any league anywhere- Sterling isn’t that player)
Where Sanchez was changing games for us (a little like RvC was in the late season of 2011), Sterling wouldn’t be able to, in my opinion.
And this isn’t a personal attack on Sterling (even though he did blank me in Ibiza, the weedy little c’nt). I think he is wrongly castigated and hounded by the media. He is an excellent player, of that there is no dispute. God forbid it had been him and not Harry Kane who had missed that sitter against Croatia in the world cup semi-final.
Maybe it’s just the money aspect of it I find a little unedifying but I can’t blame Sterling for that. Whether it’s Sterling or Ozil, the money these fellas get is obscene. That’s perhaps a topic for another day
