    As good a time as any to start this. The terms of the contract being suggested for Milner to prevent him moving are absolutely astonishing.

    http://www.espnfc.co.uk/manchester-city/story/2457250/man-city-offer-james-milner-new-four-year-contract-to-stay--

    Raheem Sterling was apparently booed tonight as he went to collect an award at a Liverpool dinner. Real Madrid bound David De Gea was applauded as he picked up his at the United equivalent. Good to see some class and dignity being shown.

    I'm more bothered about the fact that it's a 4 year contract than the money. He's not good enough to be a first team starter now, I can't imagine he's going to be any better aged 33 when that contract ends.

    Absolutely, it's insane. Why Raheem Sterling is getting so much shit for his prospective transfer and supposed demands while this overhyped "overrated underrated" cunt is getting none I don't know. Is it because he's nearly 30? Jamie Carragher's high pitched inane rant on Monday night seemed to indicate that a 20 year old shouldn't be "taking on the club" when talking about Sterling, maybe it is OK for a 29 year old.

    Do you genuinely think the two situations are comparable or are you trolling?

    Sterling is getting shit from pundits because he's demanding insane wages for a youngster, especially considering he hasn't actually been THAT good this season. And he's also now trying to force a move to one of the "giants" when he hasn't proved himself to a player of that level. (Compare all of this to how Coutinho, who's a better player than Sterling anyway, has handled signing a new contract with Liverpool, and it'll put it into perspective how much of a twat Sterling/his agent is being).

    Whereas Milner is only after playing time, so you can't blame him for wanting to move to a Club where this is more likely. He's not taking on the Club at all. The Club is merely trying to persuade him to stay with a huge wage increase.

    Or to put it even more simply

    Sterling is DEMANDING higher wages and Liverpool have refused to budge on the £100k offered so far, whereas Milner wants to leave to get more game time, so City are OFFERING insane amounts of money to keep him.

    So age does come into it then?  I don't think it should, players should be paid based on their talent and the value they'll provide to the club over the term of the contract, not how old they are.  Bringing age into it really makes me see why someone like Sterling needs an agent who'll look after his interests, otherwise he'll be looked down on simply because of the number on his birth certificate.  I suppose this explains why Gerrard gets a guard of honour walking out on you for nothing to go to another club whereas when he tried to do it at 24 he was temporarily a hate figure.

    Neither Milner nor Sterling are taking on their clubs, that is a nonsensical way to look at a contract negotiation.  Both sides are trying to come to an agreement and each wants one that maximises the value to them.

    Sterling, or his representatives have ASKED FOR higher wages, Liverpool refused and have tried to force his hand by leaking details to the media in an attempt to make him look like a "money grabbing 20 year old".  Now he has ASKED to leave, he has not demanded anything.  You need to be in a position of power to make demands, he isn't, Liverpool have him on a two year deal that drastically underpays him and the manager has is on record as saying he'll keep him against his will.

    Milner is actually in a position to make demands of course, because he can leave at the end of the season or sign a contract with another club tomorrow.  It's funny that you believe him when sources close to him say it's not about money, it's about playing time, but when Sterling comes out and says it's not about the money on national TV you think he is a liar.

    Also, if he's not that good, Coutinho's better anyway, he's not worth big money etc., I expect Liverpool will have problem letting him go for a low transfer fee?

    “I don’t care about the PR of the club and the club situation. I don’t care.

    “He is definitely not signing. He’s not signing for £700, £800, £900 thousand a week. He is not signing.

    “My job is to make sure I do the best with them (my clients). If people say I am bad at my job, or they are badly advised it does not matter.”

    “Carragher is a knob. Everybody knows it. Any of the criticism from current pundits or ex-Liverpool players - none of them things matter to me. It is not relevant.”

    “I am not worried. Worried is making a decision not knowing what is going to happen. Every premier league club will make a bid for him.”

    He's now denied the quotes and is threatening legal action against The Standard for publishing that.

    What a mess.

    "Best young player in Europe" according to Brendan Rodgers. He said this when Neymar was playing Europe.

    Guardian article on this Sterling situation.

    STERLING SLIDES

    As we all know, Liverpool Football Club is special. Different. Classy. Unique. Special. Unique. Classy. Unique. Iconic. Unique. Special. Unique. Clubby. Clubbish. Clubesque. Special. Unique. Increasingly irrelevant. Over the hill. Past-it. Yesterday’s news. Special. Unique. Iconic. Unique. Special. Special. Special. Unique. Liverpool Football Club are special. And unique. And special. And classy. They’re special and specially unique and uniquely specially and specially special and uniquely classy and they have a different way of doing things, you wouldn’t understand, you just wouldn’t, because you’re not special, or classy, or unique, you’re not Liverpool Football Club, and you wouldn’t understand, so don’t even bother, just accept it, they’re the best football team in the tra-la-la-la land.

    Liverpool Football Club’s specialness and uniqueness and classiness naturally places them in a position to pat lesser clubs on the head and let them know of their place in the food chain. Clubs, say, like Southampton, who were browbeaten into selling Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren to mighty Liverpool last summer. “They have a choice as a club,” Liverpool’s head guru, Brendan Rodgers, roared last August. “They don’t have to sell. You have a choice. Maybe Southampton’s objectives have changed. They were looking to be a [Big Cup] club, I believe. They obviously wanted to change. There might be one or two others who leave. It’s just the way it works.” It’s. Just. The. Way. It. Works.

    Words to live by. Poetry in motion that comes to mind now that Raheem Sterling is busy letting Liverpool know that the way it works is that he would like to leave in the summer, maybe join a bigger club, play for a team who actually have a chance of winning something in the near future, that there’s only so many times he can hear about the Miraculous Miracle of Istanbul before he’s forced to go all Van Gogh on his ears.

    Treason! Naturally Sterling’s desire to play for a good team has been met with fury and The Fiver assumes he has spent the day locked in Melwood’s Re-education Chamber, a crack team of Phil Thompson, John Bishop and John Aldridge taking it in turns to hammer home the uniqueness and specialness and classiness of Liverpool Football Club, making sure Sterling knows that he will forever walk alone if he joins Manchester City, a terrifying prospect indeed. It’s just the way it works.

    I don't understand why Liverpool didn't just offer Sterling the money he wanted? I'd say he's the best young (u21) player in Europe and probably deserves that money based on his talent alone. They shouldn't expect blind loyalty like Suarez gave them when he was being underpaid.

    That's assuming that money is the main issue though. Even if they offered him 150k a week, City or Chelsea would probably offer the same and have a better chance of winning things.

    Why would you expect unwavering loyalty from Sterling anyway? Pretty sure Liverpool know what he's about, they've already had to make him the highest paid player in his age group twice just to please him. So I don't think they expect blind loyalty from him, they're probably just a little shocked that so soon after making his breakthrough season and with only 2 year left on his contract he's pushing for a move so publicly and aggressively.
