Fair play to him for just walking away.

I don't really get the hate.

I consider myself very lucky to have grown up next door to an Indian family (albeit they emigrated from Uganda) and went to a school that for some reason attracted lots of kids from embassy families so we had Nigerian, Japanese, Mexican, Cypriot, Danish and Sri Lankan kids in our year.

It doesn't seem to matter what this lad does, the abuse he gets is just awful, it's clearly targeted as well and driven by the media.

I think he's a good footballer, I think he's a normal working class kid and I think he needs a break.

He put this article out at the time of the world cup.

https://www.theplayerstribune.com/en-us/articles/raheem-sterling-england-it-was-all-a-dream

I liked it. He generally got slated for it.

Whilst searching for it now there was an article in The Spectator questioning if he actually wrote it ! Like he would be the first person ever to have something ghost written.

As Zoo says; give him a break. It took some strength of character to brush off Saturday's abuse; and it probably means it wasn't the first time it has happened.

Although he may run funny, choose to play for some teams I wouldn't choose to play for, and misses more chances than Andy Cole, he got some respect from me for his article and attitude yesterday.

... Nic is still a cunt.

He played for the dippers and now city... I dont/cant like him. That's not to say he's not a good lad or deserves the abuse he gets.

He dealt with it the best way you can. Laugh at the small minded cunts giving the abuse safe in the knowledge that idiots like this will be plastered all over social media in hours. You don't need police/criminal charges to deal with situation like this anymore. Their parents, husbands, wives, kids will have seen it. And if that isn't enough, their bosses, customers and clients will no doubt see it and they'll likely find themselves out of work very quickly.

I'd happily hurl abuse at Sterling for 90 minutes. None of it racial, mind.

It must be a slow news day when 'Chelsea fan identified as racist' is considered headline-worthy.

As mentioned by The Dave I'm also shocked that anyone is shocked that Chelsea have issues with racists, it's hardly news to anyone knowledgable about football, but perhaps it s news and particularly shocking to the casual observer.

Sterling does get an extraordinary amount of bad press and criticism. He had the gaul to want a bigger, brighter and more prosperous future than he would have enjoyed at Murdering Scum. The Murdering Scum-friendly media have never forgiven him for wanting more and he's been targeted ever since. He's made a few mistakes himself, but show me any young lad that hasn't. I feel sorry for the lad, he seems to be judged by standards that others aren't.

Unfuckingbelievable.

Or not given the racist nature of most of the rags in question.

He DARED to have breakfast one day, the vile cunt!!

It started with having the temerity to leave Murdering Scum then it just turned to out and out hostility at every away game and every media story

I truly have never known anything like it (and don't really understand why, if I'm being totally honest)

I refer you to my previous response.

Alternatively, read the column by the Sun's Chief sportswriter: https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/7947922/defiant-raheem-sterling-racism-media/

Nic’s persecution complex is running wild. Everyone ageees Sterling gets unfair criticism but he’s still trying to have an argument. Nutter. lol.
