Watkins called up again but Wilson is also back so I expect game time to be limited.

Still no Konsa and all the same names who barely play, or play poorly for their team are all back as well. I think I recently heard that Southgate got upset that Sterling went back home during the last tournament when his house was broken into, and that was a big reason he is no longer a guaranteed pick. Especially as he has stated he picks players who have "never let him down" regularly.

Still no Konsa.  One of the most inform CBs in the country isn't good enough for Southgate. Everything has been said about Southgate before so I'll leave it there.

That would be a particularly shitty reason to stop picking Sterling.

Especially when the real reason should be that he is an overrated, T rex armed bag of bollocks that has had his best days.

Well, that would certainly be fairer.

But look who the England manager is at the moment. And he was being picked consistently until the World Cup, then hasn't been picked since. The others he still picks has shown club form is not the reason. So "letting the team down" seems to be the one thing he did at the world cup where none of the rest of the squad did.

edit: Ben White is another player not capped since the World Cup after he also left the squad early. However he didn't have lots of caps beforehand so it rarely gets noticed, although someone raised it in todays presser.

I dreamt last night that Raheem Sterling joined Villa. I was happy in the dream with this news but when I woke-up, I hoped it wasn't true.

I'd still swap him for Stephen Kenny.

Pretty invisible for most of the game and then an excellent goal.  Fair play Ollie.

Good movement for the goal, hassled the CBs when they had the ball and backed into them both well, but, when we needed to go from our CBs to his feet, he suffered from the same 'first touch' issues he's had since he arrived.
