    Sterling out of England game.....

    ....sitting on the naughty step due to a temper tantrum. Looks like PW's management philosophy is having an impact at the National level

    Future captain? Maybe not any more, who knows?
    However, Raheem Sterling is more important to the England team than Joe Gomez so this problem needs sorting out pretty damn quick.

    England shouldnít be about one player, having said that I just donít get why heís dropped Sterling.

    Both players had a ten second spat in an emotional game but hey what do we know about football especially emotions

    Why is Southgate fetching club rivalry into the national team anyway ?

    Because Southgate is a Liverpool fan.

    This shouldíve been kept in house and dealt with there and then. There was no need for this.
    Sterling is our best player and if we lose him because of this Southgate can feck off.

    I don't agree mate,we don't know what's gone off but he must have stepped out of line & if that's the case best player are not he's not bigger than the team.This sends a message to all players.I do agree tho it should have been kept in house.

    Sorry, I didn't mean that Sterling should not be reprimanded for it mate. It was reported on ITV this morning that Gomez said sommat sarcastic to Sterling and Sterling grabbed him by the throat. Brave lad if true. He's giving away about a foot in height

    I more mean that there was no need for it all to be made public and give Sterling the opportunity to feel trialled by the media and hearsay. Southgate has not protected his players here. He could've dropped Sterling for the games and kept him training with the squad but on the bench. That seems a better punishment than sending him home for a rest.

    Does anyone think the standard of opposition made a difference in the decision to send him home?

    He's not been sent home ST . He is training with the squad and will watch the match.

    In fact he was packed and prepared to clear off himself before Jordan Henderson persuaded him against it.

    Talksport managed to confuse things this morning: First they claimed that he was prepared to do a runner before he had been dropped (seems unlikely)and 5 minutes later they said it was after he was dropped. They had also reported that his dropping was "fuelled" by the unanimous feelings of the squad
    . Another time it was reported that Southgate's action had the full support of the squad - a completely different scenario.
    Who knows exactly what went off. I agree with you that this would have been better dealt with in house, especially because it is Sterling - who has his own delightful crackpot army of haters.

    Thanks for that mate. I thought he'd been sent home. I heard Jordan Henderson being interviewed on Talksport last week. Came across as a tremendous bloke and a natural leader.

    If anyone deserves to lift the premier League Trophy this year it's him.

    Perhaps this isn't an isolated incident, maybe Sterling has done it before and management have turned a blind eye because of his value to the team?

    Could be once to often?

    Who knows?

    I don't know why anyone's surprised at this. I've noticed his reaction to any decision that doesn't go his way, he just rants and raves at the officials and just throws a tantrum like a spoiled little kid. He needs to grow up and get that great big chip off his shoulder. He's not been the same since he got racially abused and it was all over the news. He's a very good player but he's a mardy arse too.

    Southgate has totally got it wrong , thereís no excuse just plain stupidness from his part imo

    Yes you may need to show authority but this for a ten second spat in an emotional game is just wrong, has he forgot what itís like to play in them sort of games ?

    That's what makes me think that Sterling might have done it before.

    It's not about what happened in the game. It's about Stirling getting physical with Gomez in the training camp canteen.

    Yes. Threw his baked beans at him and intentionally broke the yolk on his chucky eggs

    Maybe he has got it right but if the forthcoming match was v Germany or some other top side would he still have done it?

    I think not

    So in last nights game Gomez gets booed by the England "fans" ?

    Just don't get it, the victim booed but the guilty party cheered.

    Bonkers
