"Simply red what on earth has his personal life got to do with either his birthday or the club so what if he has 2 kids. He is a great prospect who can help further himself and the club and mature together."

"Happy Birthday Raheem. I had hoped for an instant contract signing, which would show a real commitment to the club and to quash all this rubbish about demanding over-the-odds fees. I don't think there's any club out there that would be better suited for him at this moment."

"Happy Birthday Lad.... in line with BR's words regarding much pressure being put on young talent these days i totally agree.... so I wont say you are the best winger/wide attacking option at Anfield since the great John Barnes.... sign the contract Raheem and be part of the revolution..... we all trust in the way we are heading. YNWA"

"think that keep Raheem here for many years is a must, the lad needs to grow progressively his talent, skills and top flight experience, and believe it will be a good thing near to him another right winger, new and more experienced, who can help him in that growth. Did you understand BR & FSG? Happy birthday Raheem, keep working hard and with calm! You need time, you have time! YNWA RS"

"Raheem will make the right decision all he has to do is look at what's happend to Scott Sinclair he had a grate future ahead of him and now is say on a bench. If demands are too high then cash in on him no ones bigger than the club YNWA"

"To Buddha, how much do you think we would have to pay to get FT back? I think it would be 30m at least, I think we could spend that money on a better player than him, he was rubbish in his last 18months with us and hasn't improved much since "

"Agreed, he had his chance with us and his ati.tude let him down big time, both in his performances and his departure from the club, no doubt he's a talented footballer, but for the money he'd cost, I think we can do better (aguero, hazard, van persie were all similar price)"

"I agree with what you are saying on this issue Buck. He's got lots of potential, but so far hasn't produced where he needs to. If we pick up 2 goal scorers in the next windows, Raheem will be on the bench, where an 18 year old should be, getting hungry."

"If he wants a King-size contract, then, let him go join some other club. I know this sounds a little harsh but then no one is above the club. Hope Sterling and his agent are able to see the new 'financial' reality at Liverpool. "

"Happy Birthday! He's a good player but if he left he could get swallowed up by chelsea,utc or city- can you see him developing at city? Me, neither. Here with careful rather than careless spending we will play him and he has a chance to be an international, not a bench-warmer."

"Happy Birthday lad, keep your feet on the ground, sign a contract and commit yourself to LFC where you will become a legend. Just look what happened to Michael Owen and Nando Torres after they left - never played half as well as at LFC. Repay the faith YNWA"

"It would be a big loss if he joins other club. But cant let agent negotiate too much. Only 18 yo, you don't know what will happen to you. A few more years with Liverpool, maybe your resume will look much better."

"Many Happy Returns young man! Don't blow a brilliant future with the reds by being too greedy. I've been watchin for nealry 50 years and seen them all come and go. Can't even remember the names of some of the "flash in the pan" merchants. You don't want to be one of them. you ant to be a legend like Barnesie and Rushie."
