    Question Sterling?

    Another media driven storm in a teacup or something else?

    For me, Sterling is like a lot of PL Footballers that think they are something more than ordinary, be it a good or bad player earning 100's of thousands of £'s a week it does not hide their childishness, "If" Sterling turned up at the England training ground and asked Gomez "you still the big man?" then it certainly shows his immaturity, Just like his tattoo of a gun on his leg because his dad was shot, I'm sure I and many more would never have that tattoo to remember their dead shot Father, it seems very odd to me.

    All this should have been kept "In House", but Southgate in his wisdom decided otherwise, which has the media in this storm BT, "something else" ? as far as I can see Southgate has opened the can on what happened and given his verdict, something as I've said above should not have been aired in public, Sterling should have been read the riot act and omitted from the squad for his behaviour and causing unrest in the camp, but having aired it it has put it up for debate from Media to players to comment which IMO is not good.

    I agree that it should have been kept in house, however, these days, there will always be someone within the 'house' who will spill the beans to get their pockets filled with loads of money! It isn't just football that suffers from this ---it is the modern world.

    Got to give Sterling some credit though, for not taking sh-it from a Scouser.

    No credit to either of them ---just like a pair of spoilt brats behaving like schoolchildren ---and that's an insult to most schoolchildren!

    Sterling crisis? Southgate takes a pounding for dropping him for England’s 1000th international fixture. Is Gareth really top dollar as a manager or has he sounded a bum note? For my money he has hardly handled this with aplomb. Seriously I think he could have dealt better with this incident.

    Dead right out wood.

    For me he just slipped into the glove of FA puppet and his tenure will be shortened from now imo anyway.

    Firstly this incident , secondly heís moved away from doing what he said by not selecting players in form to represent their country.

    Sterling is the cog that makes England tick he was in the World Cup and has been since so itís a mistake all be it weaker opposition.

    I really like you donít get all the fuss, stuff like this happens every day at workplaces across the country, they get disciplined told to do there jobs end off.

    If it was me Iíd have said if you want to get it out of your systems , find somewhere quiet away from public and cameras and crack on.

    From what bit I've bothered to read about it, Southgate has decided to drop the little **** for one game. Seems a fairly reasonable and sensible response to me, can't see what all the fuss is about.

    I quite admire the fact the precocious little phucker stood his ground and squared up to a bully twice the size of him.

    Of course you could BT, even with me as your assistant, nevertheless we've struggled against teams like Montenegro on numerous occasions in the past, and even lost games against such opposition.

    What I don't like about Sterling is the way it's always about him. He could do with keeping his head down, his mouth shut and off social media for a while imo. Just play football.

    I see Gomez has picked up an injury and headed back off to Anfield. No doubt Sterling will play against Kosovo?

    I would assume he will, no reason not to play him now, it's all done and dusted surely.

    Do you really think so BT, this was such a trivial incident I'm amazed it carried over to the England squad. I really can't believe that even two pampered tw@ts like these two are will take it any further.

    The media will whip up a proper storm for at least a month before the return fixture sinkov. Where's Tommy Smith when you need him?
