    You would do well to read your post the next time you post about Ming or Henderson or Lukaku or or or from the comfort of your armchair.

I hope keeping picking him doesn't bite Southgate in the same way it bit Klopp. I don't buy the training line, that is usually thrown out to justify poor form and stubbornness.

    Of course he will make substitutions when he sees right, I just wish he made them earlier. I'd like him to be more decisive but I accept that is not his way.

    Being on the pitch when the goals went in doesn't mean he brought them about. It just means he was on the pitch.
    Mate, sometimes people are teams or play a certain role because the manager believes there is no one better, maybe Klopp did look for another keeper and none better in his opinion may of been available, since we qualified Southgate will have travelled up and down the Country watching players in the flesh, deciding how he wants his team to play and which players best fit his system.

    6 months ago I wouldn’t of had Pickford in goal, Walker or Maquire playing in a back 3 with Stones, Henderson on his own holding in midfield or Sterling up front, I agree it’s about opinions and all of us have one

    Even tonight, Neville, Dixon and Bilic all stated Sterling was outstanding today with his runs and workrate and linking up with Kane, yes they also showed his miss when he could of passed to Kane, but they said they couldn’t understand the criticism and that’s people who played at the highest level.

    The point about him being on the pitch is the fact he’s working hard in the build ip to the goals pulling defenders about and causing problems.

    The goals have dried up when he’s made these substitutions.

    By the same reasoning, Bale wouldnt have been picked for the CL final either.

    The campaign against Sterling was started way before this World Cup and imo the guy is being unfairly treated.

    Why when England have exceeded expectations do people still question Southgate’s decision, it baffles me.
    Ok then by that theory Rooney was Awful for England because how many goals did he score at an actual tournament.. most were in friendly against useless teams

    A quick google says he had 7 goals

    Kane has 6 in this tournament alone

    Pen or not his bottle alone to take them on that stage shows why he is the man.. why he is finally an England captain we can look up to and respect

    Zero respect for wazza. The way he treated his wife.. way he came accross isn’t the same as Kane who just seems the most likeable bloke and someone you wouldn’t mind your daughter dating

    Sterling is useless at certain things but he does have pace and dribbling .. if we could just train him to dribble and then simple side pass we would destroy teams

    You can't expect him to be able to do everything when he only gets £1m per month

    Are they...

    “Miscontrol the ball at key times.”

    “Fluff your lines.”

    “Fall over sometimes.”

    “Don’t score goals.”

    ?

    Its a forum with opinions.
    The PL football thread is clearly going to be much quieter this year if no players or managers are going to be questioned 😁. Managers to be trusted 100% all of the time this season. I'm looking forward to seeing how long this is going to last.

    Earlier in the tournament you were saying that you wanted Young replaced by Rose. Surely the argument you make about Sterling could equally apply to Young. He's played in all the sames games as Sterling and so the same argument is valid - he's been on the pitch when England have played their best football and England have won all 4 games with him in the team so why change him? Surely Southgate, who has just got his team to a World Cup semi, knows a bit more than you in your armchair at home.

    Some people think Sterling has been given enough chances and has fluffed his lines so give someone else a go. If there's one thing you can guarantee it's that football will split opinions. Some people would have started with Dier instead of Henderson but Henderson has proved himself over the last four games. Some people almost certainly didn't have Pickford as first choice but again he's proved them wrong. People are going to have different opinions, some of which will be based on club loyalties others not so much.
