So Sterling and Gomez.....

Recommended Posts

What’s the beef there? Thought Sterling was incredibly fortunate not to get booked on Sunday. He was rattled and desperate to score.. I think the wee bollix would have done a couple of laps of the pitch had he scored. Which, obviously is all the sweeter.

 

Great chant from Sunday. “There’s only one greedy b*****d ....”.

Have we? I don't remember grabbing a work colleague by the neck and scratching his face before

 

Lucky that he's still in the squad tbh

Obviously you're a snivelling Beta and Sterling is a roaring Alpha

It's embarrassing more than anything for Sterling. The whole thing reads like it's scripted.

 

"still think you're the big man"

 

Everyone laughs, so he scratches Gomez' eye, then runs to his room to pack his bags, only to be talked out of it by Henderson.

 

f*** me. What a little gobs***e he is. 

 

He'll do a lengthy puff-piece of an interview on it soon.

Story in the Guardian where Sterling is apparently whining that Southgate overreacted: https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/nov/12/joe-gomez-scratch-right-eye-raheem-sterling-clash

 

he possibly did but from an England perspective

 

1) Club rivalries have been cited in the past as a problem so nipping this in the bud (if he's achieved that) makes some sense

2) this could be a needed wake up call for Sterling. We've seen hot-headedness cost us previously in international tournaments - Beckham/Rooney. Sterling is going to be a target cos he's good and he's easy to wind up. Needs to keep that temper in check.

Apparently the scratch happened when they were being separated, so not directly from Sterling

Apparently it came from Sterling's jewellery

 

Think Southgate has done the right thing... Can't behave like that and no chance it was going to be kept quiet as it would have been leaked at some point.

Did Sterling get a red card in an England friendly after a nark with Valencia? Or am I dreaming that

Trevor Sinclair was saying the same on Talksport (I saw a tweet about it).

 

He was trying to insinuate something.

 

Sterling of course being the first player to ever get booed when he goes back to the club he left acrimoniously.

What part of

"It's probably the first time I have sat back and actually realised and took note of how much the Liverpool fans dislike him," Rose told BBC Radio 5 Live.

"I take that for granted whenever I'm watching Raheem. I think he just gets on with it and maybe it had a part to play in whatever happened."

 

is inaccurate. We give him s*** to get into his head, why would you carp when someone says "The s*** you gave him got in his head"

i'm surprised it's the first time he's noticed we give him s*** - but the idea that the grief we give him is the reason for him having a go at an England team-mate a day later is bolllocks

It's completely contradictory isn't it?

 

Raheem just gets on with it, but Liverpool fans ****ed him up, so maybe that played a part.

 

Either he gets on with it, or he lets it get to him. Can't have it both ways.
