Sterling / Gomez - 'clash'

Recommended Posts

What's this about? Seems more than a '5-10 second thing', if it meant Sterling was dropped from his national side.

 

Must be more to it.

 

Raheem Sterling dropped by England after Joe Gomez clash before Euro 2020 qualifier

Forward Raheem Sterling admitted "emotions got the better of me" after being dropped for England's Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro following a clash with team-mate Joe Gomez.

The Football Association said Sterling had been dropped "as a result of a disturbance in a private team area".

The Manchester City player, 24, then took to social media to confirm "a five to 10 second thing" with Liverpool's Joe Gomez, 22, in the England camp.

But he added the pair were now "good".

The pair had an on-field argument during the Reds' 3-1 Premier League victory at Anfield on Sunday.

"Both Joe and I have had words and figured things out and moved on," Sterling said via his Instagram account on Tuesday.

"We are in a sport where emotions run high and I am man enough to admit when emotions got the better of me.

"This is why we play this sport because of our love for it - me and Joe Gomez are good, we both understand it was a five to 10 second thing... it's done, we move forward and not make this bigger than it is.

"Let's get focus on our game on Thursday," Sterling added.

England boss Gareth Southgate said: "Unfortunately the emotions of yesterday's game were still raw.

"One of the great challenges and strengths for us is that we've been able to separate club rivalries from the national team.

"We have taken the decision to not consider Raheem for the match against Montenegro on Thursday. My feeling is that the right thing for the team is the action we have taken.

A novel new way for a player from a team that's not Liverpool to get some time off during the international break. No need for England's medical team to have the player join up with the squad as per FIFA guidelines to 'confirm' an injury.

Harsh penalty for a 5 to 10 second thing.

 

Perhaps City arranged it... they've got Chelseas next, and - despite their gargantuan depth - can't afford to have the squirt injured.

He’s so rattled by Liverpool.  It goes to show all the booing and calling him a greedy bastard at games is doing it’s job.  The fucking snake.  He might have won the league at city and earn more money but he clearly knows how hollow it all is.  Gomez clearly knew what buttons to push.

I wonder how his next trip to Anfield will go after this ?

He's a proper fucking bell end, leaving one one Van Dijk and trying to start a scrap with Gomez.  Either one of them would pound him into a bloodied pulp.  This just confirms what we suspected, he is an utter fucking prick.

Those cunts are welcome to him.

He definitely thinks he’s some sort of gangster.  I don’t think Gomez actually did anything to him.  I’ve watched the clip of the coming together and he’s jockeying sterling and it’s something you see literally a hundred times a game.  He was so rattled over nothing.

It'll make the stupid cunt more determined to have an impact when we go to their place.  It could be difficult for us if he has a positive impact as he gave Alexander Arnold a tough time in the second half on Sunday.  Or if he has a shocker (which he often does against us) it could lead to a red card as the frustration gets the better of him.  He's now got an official record of lashing out in frustration and being punished for it, it's an interesting option to explore when we go to theirs.  Just needle the cunt into imploding.

He should have had a red on Sunday actually - his hissy fit of dissent in the first half, an arm in Mane's face in the 2nd, clattering Virgil towards the end, and being an all round pathetic twat for 90 minutes.

It's good to see Gomez come out of this looking squeaky clean, but I get no pleasure out of seeing Sterling take the fall. He's rattled a few bigoted cages on the Street of Shame of late, good on him. The denizens of those cages will be merciless in their gloating. It will not be a pretty sight.

If we'd have had a player sent off for any combination of those nothing incidents I would be fuming.

 

The main positive of the whole affair is that we are indubitably getting into the Man City heads.

Sums up City no marks who have suddenly without earning it have become the best team in the country and are used to all teams rolling over for them (which 99% do) and now suddenly they're being challenged by a team every bit as good as them  they don't like it one bit

    • Fuck me that's a Career ender.  We may as well save some time and money and get rid now.
    • Likewise. The one-on-one king; nobody does it better. The only errors he has ever made were through his own nonchalance, as if he were blasé about how good he is
    • 3 more games like that? That should make the season finale a lot more fun.
    • Jürgen Klopp has given fulsome praise to his players as Liverpool had to fight exceptionally hard to record their 18th straight league win after a 3-2 victory against West Ham on Monday night.

      The home fans walking into Anfield would have by and large expected a routine victory against a side who are battling to hold onto their Premier League status.

      And when Gini Wijnaldum scored from a flowing move within the ten minute mark, it appeared that the Reds would stroll to another three points.

      However the Hammers who have just one league win in 2020 and whose fans are in uproar over the current ownership of the East London club, were in the mood to cause some uncomfortable moments for the home side and equalised through a Issa Diop header which went through Alisson.

      They then took a shock lead early in the second half when substitute Pablo Fornals smartly turned the ball home and any discussion of a routine evening at the office was now well and truly on the back burner.

      During this winning run in the league, Liverpool have had their hurdles to overcome and this was another one.

      While they were not at their fluid best, they found a way again with goals by Mo Salah (via a Lukasz Fabianski howler) and Sadio Mane. 

      Speaking after the game as the Reds equaled the consecutive league victory mark set by Man City, Klopp said he continues to be be amazed by the ability of his squad to perform game after game.

      The Echo reported the manager as saying:

      A couple of years ago, maybe at the beginning of my time here, I said we wanted to write our own stories and create our own history.

      “Obviously the boys have taken that really seriously, when I said that!

      “It’s all cool, but not too important at the moment. 

      “I never thought it would ( the consecutive wins) would bebroken or equalled We did it and I cannot believe it happened to be honest.

      “It’s so special. The numbers are incredible, so difficult.

      “We have spoken about wonderful games and hard games, and it was a difficult one tonight. 

      “You can only get those numbers by winning all those games. The brilliant ones, the rougher ones, the more grumpy ones.”

      “That’s what counts. 

      We all know that it’s very special, but at the moment we are just in the situation and want to recover and want to prepare for the next one.”  

      Despite also battling for their Premier League survival, Klopp said the next clash against Watford on Saturday evening will a considerable challenge.

      “The next three points are always the hardest. 

      “It’s always been like this. It would be strange if we said anything different. 

      “The next 12 points will be difficult because they are difficult, you saw that tonight.

      “The next opponent is waiting, the whole stadium at Watford will go for us. It’s completely normal. It will be a special atmosphere and we have to be 100% ready.

      “I saw them against United and they played really well here because at the moment everybody is fighting for everything.

      “I saw the boys tonight, they are really ready to fight. 

      “As long as we have that then nobody should worry, but we really have a lot of work still to do.”   Klopp also a special mention for the crowd after the 21st successive home league win.

      “We have to be ready for the hardest work as a unit, and we were there again together with the crowd tonight, I loved that fact. 

      “Whatever will happen this season is an effort of all of us. I could not be more thankful or appreciate the support we get.   "So far so good."
