      Internationals in March isn't there?

      Hopefully title would be wrapped up by March & the CWC trophy added to collection of silverware ..😎

      Henderson withdrawn from the England squad as well, and both he and Joe return to Anfield now.

      No complaint here as I'd rather they be back anyway, but is it probably that this is not about injury or illness?

      If Joe did pick up a knock, here's hoping he is back fit very soon. Henderson seems to have been battling this virus for a while now.

      Edit: Guardian article talks a bit more about how the injury transpired and Southgate's thought that the injury isn't too serious:

      “The injury was him and Kieran Trippier – they were trying to defend a ball, actually both on the same team – they collided into each other. Joe felt restricted in the last part of the session. We scanned it just to be certain and I think he’ll be fine in a couple of days but he wasn’t able to train today.

      “I think now is a good moment for him just to go home for a couple of days, clear his head. The pleasing thing for me is that we’ve got him back on the pitch [against Montenegro]."

      To be fair I dont hate Sterling. Dont like his diving and cynical fouls and I can see right through the bad boy turned good act he and his people have been trying to portray the last 18 months, but that's just a matter of mild irritation.

      Hes gone on to do really well for City and his end product is a lot better than the laughable finishing he produced for us in his younger days. (Shooting beyond 6 yards is still pretty tame mind).

      But I dont think we are any worse off for selling him, and even now hes scoring and assisting goals and lifting lots of silverware, I dont think he makes our best XI to be honest.

      I don't hate anybody in footie Sterling included. As for the scrap I think that Sterling might've just had the impression he - and City- thinks he is untouchable and good on Southgate for taking him down a peg or two.Some in the game did not realise the issue, it wasn't a 50-50 training ground bust up, it was all Sterling with Joe doing nothing wrong.And it had to be addressed and it has been.

      Still Joe got it in the neck from the ignorant fans in Wembley.
