As is your right. But the way you chose was flawed.



Agree.



On the balance of probabilities you're probably right.

Do I think he's genuinely racist? No.

Do I think he'd resort to some really outrageous acts if he thought it'd gain him an advantage? Yep.
I'd say racially abusing a black man is pretty definitive proof of being a racist.

Good article on BBC about it. His stats are good and his goals+assists figure is comparable to deBruyn's.

I think he's never going to be a 50 games a season player, he would probably thrive in Spain or in a team with a hugely talented squad.

Those two bastards, calling out racism.

I have a lot of admiration for the fine young man Sterling has become. Great player too.

He's certainly playing Ed like a finely tuned one.

Exactly, there's nothing else to be said about him.

Anybody disputing is a racist (latent or otherwise), a bitter Liverpool fan who can't let go, or both (not looking at anybody in particular!)
