It was all different in our day.

Raheem Sterling might think that he’s the first boy wonder to strut around a football pitch but he’d be wrong. There’s been loads of them. Young boys who are pretty wonderful at football are ten a penny.

To prove it here’s an old picture of one of them and it happens to sum up exactly what is wrong with modern football. Here’s a teenage Ryan Giggs - already a Manchester United regular - buying his first car.

Note that it’s not a Ferrari but a very modest Ford Escort for a not inconsiderable but hardly excessive £6000. The car was later sold to David Beckham. The modern generation of footballer wouldn't even let their butler be seen in one of these.
