Fernando Torres, Michael Owen and Ian Rush are some of the big names I can remember whose careers practically stalled once they walked out the Anfield door. Now, the most recent name that could end-up in that cursed list is apparently Sterling.

“Rejoice”, most LFC fans will say. Especially when Sterling was one of the names blamed for England’s pathetic performance. But is does bother a little, given the fact that he could be the youngest ex Liverpool player to suffer that ‘curse’

There are no scientific proof of course, instead there could be a simple reason behind it. Fans

These are some ex-Liverpool stars whose emotional impact influences their performance. And because there are no other fans better than Liverpool supporters who does that with such devastating effect, that when they walk out of Anfield they feel a huge vacuum during their performances.

Unfortunately, for Sterling, there’s no way back. Not after the way he handled his departure. Sick advise, greed and immaturity is rotting his career elsewhere. The recent England debacle will only cause even further damage to Sterling; a mental hangover so huge that even the incoming Guardiola would find it hard to reverse.

The Liverpool curse look to have struck again.

As much as Sterling should serve as an example for young players whose ego and agents destroy their careers, I would like to see him apply his god given skills a lot longer, (Championship teams can afford his value and wage now I reckon), just to keep reminding other potential Liverpool stars of the Liverpool support and the Curse.

Before the Euros even began I was reading that Pep didn’t see him in his plans. It’ll be even easier to write him off if that is the case after the Euros.
Same for Joe Hart

Sterling is in danger of becoming the next Shaun Wright-Phillips whose hype and career soon fizzled out well before his 30th birthday….

Sterlings would be before his 23rd

A lot of players peak early and then fade. It’s usually because of injuries. Michael Owen and to some extent Robbie Fowler are examples. Sterling however hasn’t had any major injuries and I think his problems are in his head. He’s probably beginning to realise his greedy agent has sent his career down the pan. While not exactly wishing he goes on to have a brilliant career with City I do hope he recovers from what is clearly a difficult time for the lad.

He exhibited many examples of having “head issues” with all of his screw ups, bad decisions (pre-/non- Aidy Ward) while he was at LFC.
Maybe he will develop mentally, but he hasn’t indicated that yet

When i think of sterling i think young, dum and full of ***, the kid got carried away by all the hype and wanted more, ok, he had a dirtbag for an agent in ward but at the end of the day it was sterlings decision to leave LFC and i have absolutely zero sympathy for him. I bet he wishes he was still with us and now working under klopp, the grass ain’t alway’s greener on the other side and he’s finding that out now.

Sterling seems to have started a trend of young players moving away. Sinclair, Rossiter and probably Canos are following and though they weren’t fixtures in the first team they could have made it with hard work and a bit of luck. They have to do what is best for their career but I’m thinking they too may have been ill advised by their agents.
