Can somebody remind me when the last time Sterling did something other than run directly at his defender and lose the ball?

Once he loses his pace, what is he going to offer?
The Michael Owen question.

He's out of place on the wing, sure, but you have a point. If City want to pay £50M+ for him, be my guest.

New category of annoying American soccer fan: the guy who goes to the bar to sing instead of watching the FUCKING MATCH. We all have access to YouTube, asshole. I blame the Seattle Sounders.

Seriously, why try to start songs about Maxi Rodriguez and Peter Crouch? Shut up SUPERFAN.

The quality of play from BOTH squads between the match at Old Trafford and now is unbelievably different.
 
The midfield 3 of United have done very well so far.  Rooney has been invisible.

I think that United's midfield dominance can be attributed to a miserable day from Liverpool's midfield. Sturridge isn't on an island, he's on the moon.

I think the play of Sterling, Lallana, and Sturridge has been masked and forgiven by Henderson and Coutinho of late. They've been out of form for some weeks and it's resulting in looking quite toothless.

Lallana's miss was shocking and inexcusable.

Sure, but Fellaini is bullying everyone and their sisters out there today.

Agree 100%. Your guys have been outstanding. Not the terrifying attack of last Sunday's first half, but that's probably unsustainable for anyone.

The commentators are idiots.  There was nothing wrong with his first challenge.  It was perfect.  The card is for the stamp only and is the correct decision.

Some are speculating that he did that because he was pissed at not starting.  Anything in that?
Uh, no. They were getting manhandled in the first half and it was an ill attempted way to take back a little bit of physical control.

California. Duh.
Jones could have gone there.  Would have been a little harsh, but in this atmosphere he could have given it.
 
Ha, that's as deliberate a hand ball as you will ever see.
