"Stick up for your own kind you Uncle Tom". Yeah ok, good to see the anti racists fighting the good fight on line.

The worst of it is, the people I've seen calling him that have been white for the most part! Go figure that shit out! 

What do they expect him to do? Confront the three arseholes on his own? He's probably thinking that he's got to sit next to them or their mates every home game, so to expect him to do anything too drastic is a bit of a stretch.

It's great to see the media getting pelters over this. The stuff with Sterling has been noticeable since the early day at Liverpool with all the "he's got 8 kids" stuff that many of the Everton fans I know irl used to think was genuine. Good portion of Liverpool fans as well come to think about it, it did seem to rise when he entered his contract dispute though.

Sterling was established as the number one target as soon as he left Liverpool for City. Not only was he an "ungrateful young guy leaving a so-called proper club who've supported him and his development, but he was doing so to join evil City and their foreign money."

I also don't understand why he's getting grief when other young, successful black players aren't targets for as much vitriol? Does the likes of Rashford get the same kind of grief? That's a genuine question by the way, as I honestly don't know.

This was discussed on the Sunday Supplement yesterday at the beginning and towards the end of the show (when news broke of his Instagram post). 

Rashford was compared to Sterling in that he is young, black, plays for a big manchester club, is an England international etc and the only difference is that he is a youth product at Manchester United and has stayed there rather than make a big money move (not that it justifies the abuse/racism). Yet both appear to be treated differently within the media.

Right. So what did they discuss then, after the outlined the main facts of the two examples they were comparing? Bet they didn't apologise for the shitehawks they work for, did they.

Because Sterling is "uppity" in the eyes of the media. He needs to "know his place", if you get me.

Love this squad. Alisson, unreal. Love that the Coutinho money has gone toward two signings that have made us an infinitely better squad than with him.

Was bricking it when I saw the midfield we were starting but for over half the game we didn't let Napoli create a thing. Could've been 3 or 4 up but oh well. Modric flying over and wearing Henderson's shirt for the game was a cracking gesture, fair play. Coulibaly for them lot was far too good for that defence, he could be a big signing for somebody come Summer. VVD exceptional once again, but annoyed he's going to miss the first leg at Anfield. That said, we shouldn't be fearing any team at home. 

Switch up our midfield in the away game and I'd give us a shout against anyone. Going to have to play the best teams anyway if we want to go far, so who's arsed?
