Sterling is a modern day wide attacking player. He likes to come inside on his stronger foot but can also run a fullback, with alot of ease to be truthfull. He has composure, he has the ability to score goals, to put the ball in the box, in general create havoc. We dont have enough of these players at all, Suarez and possibly bellamy.
Typically sterling will come inside from the left around the edge of the 18 yard box, he will feint, feint, feint....until a space appears, its the upredictability which gives him the edge, you know what he's trying to do, you just can't judge when, or stop it.
Everyone has seen messi play, no way is sterling as good as messi not even close or ever will be..., but you know when messi comes in on his left foot and you know what he's trying to do, to find the corner, nobody can commit to tackle him though. Thats exactly how it is with raheem. He has the raw attributes already, we have't had somebody like him since mcmanaman or barnes, just blessed with the ability to run with the ball.
