In fact, while I like what I've seen of Ibe I think he's decidedly less versatile and overall equipped to be than Sterling. He lacks the sight that Sterling has displayed (sporadically) and control, though seems to be a bit more clinical and perhaps more physically imposing. Whereas Sterling has *the potential* to be a top quality attacker that can play in several positions I think Ibe will eventually have to focus on a specific role (one in the line of Sturridge despite initially being a winger) and even then probably won't reach the overall level of Sterling.

That said, the vast, vast majority of talented young players never reach their full potential and I honestly don't expect that Ibe will either.
ibe is about 2 years behind sterling at the moment. But I think he will surprise a few people if he gets plenty of games this season. I defiantly think he will have a better season than markovic.

Odd? Evidence? What does this mean?


And again, you say out of the ordinary and I disagree, I dont think its out of the ordinary at all.

he is more of a team player than sterling. stronger. just as fast and skilful. but seems to hit the target more often at this stage of his development. sterling was more versatile tho.

Ibe needs to work on his decision making, but otherwise I like his tools better than Sterling's. As mentioned he never had the benefit of playing with Suarez/Sturridge/Coutinho who were on fire at the time that Sterling really broke out.

I think Ibe can play just as well as, if not better than, Sterling did last season without those two, and he was better at every youth level.

Because you can throw around 50m all you want but the wages in the long term are the fee that people seem to forget about all too often (though Liverpool obviously haven't).

I think it is a good deal for Liverpool given their circumstances, as for City, I think we'll wait and see. However, given their circumstances, I can see where they are able to take on the kind of investment Sterling is and if he does fill out his potential then City will have made a good deal for themselves as well.


160k a week.

It's not a good deal for Liverpool.

It's never a good deal for Liverpool.

It is for OTHER clubs, but Liverpool doesn't know how to spend money.

We practically just replaced Sterling for Benteke. rofl

We bought Andy Carroll to replace Torres. Then paid 20m on Downing to help Carroll to settle. :facepalm:

We bought 6 "proven" players to replace Suarez. Because apparently he was nobody for us last season. We only needed squad depth to fight on. eco smile :wub: Sad

Sterling was extremely good for his age. While losing him for that kind of fee isnt a bad business from Liverpool point of view but its all about replacing him with similar or better quality players that matters. In this current market any decent player has multiple clubs with cash after him so how Liverpool are going to spend that money will be interesting.

no we didnt. We swapped sterling for bentke milner and ings and had money left over. And its safe to say that bentke alone will get us more goals next season than sterling would have done

Pretty sure that the Sterling replacement was Firmino, and he's a better player right now, still young so should still improve, and there's no guarantee Sterling will ever be as good as him...and we got him for half the price we sold Sterling at.

But yeah, let's say it was Benteke that we replaced Sterling with even though they don't play the same position.

There is no shame to say that Sterling is a big loss for Liverpool. At 20 the lad is a starter for the NT and for Liverpool. Big loss but at the same time there did the right thing selling him , he didnt derseve 200k/week.
The problem, imo, is that there is too many new players coming but no plan whatsoever. Like what's Liverpool's style of play ? Last year the strikers were Balotelli and Lambert ( 2 different strikers )

Yes......... because stats tell the FULL picture......

I bet if I said Firmino and Benteke were better players than Sterling now and Sterling was still at Pool and all this transfer rubbish didn't happen, Pool fans would jump down my throat and I would hear all this type of stuff like:

- "Benteke hasn't played a meaningful game like Sterling has where he is getting teams best every week and playing 3 games a week like Sterling does."

- "Firmino has never played in the PL so we can't just say he's better than Sterling just like that. We have to wait and see."

But, Fck all that. Sterling is ass now and these Pool players and POTENTIAL Pool players are ALL better than him.

Why would anyone argue that Sterling is better than Firmino at this point? Regardless of what team either plays for. Firmino has been more convincing for club and country over the last two years.

I don't know why Benteke and Sterling are being compared anyway, but yeah, Benteke will likely score more goals but there's nothing that suggests he's a better player. They're both different and play different positions so there's no need to compare them. For Liverpool if I had to pick one of them I would rather have Benteke only because we need a striker a lot more than a wide/central attacking midfielder. If I was building a team from the ground up I'd much rather have Sterling than Benteke.
