Couple of posts in another thread mentioned starting a thread for our 17-year old whiz kid, so I hope y'all appreciate the reference (couldn't think of something that rhymed with Draper-Pryce). Rodgers spoke a lot about Raheem in his interview in the latest Anfield Wrap and due to our deadline day debacle, we will no doubt be seeing a lot of him this year out of pure necessity. Opinions differ about whether or not that's good for a 17-year old to play as much as he (most likely) will, but there's no question that he will grow leaps and bounds this season by getting thrown in the deep end. He's already looked mature beyond his years, both in his confidence and, IMO, his physicality. He's not easily muscled off the ball and he can burn by most defenders with his blistering speed. I think Jenkinson did a very good job containing Sterling in our game against Arsenal, but I also think that so many games in a row has him a little burned out. Hope this isn't getting ahead of ourselves, but I like individual player threads to discuss the growth and development over the course of a season, and to have some in-depth analysis of specific players after each game.
