I didn't get the boos for Gomez, I don't read the tabloids but no doubt they've been applying layers of hype and putting different contexts on the original incident. You might expect club loyalty from the fans i.e. Stirlings clubs fans booing perhaps ironically towards Gomez. But they are Man City fans. As we know, Man City fans don't make any noise. So who was booing? The "club England" brigade who perhaps in terms of recent impact see Stirling as the more crucial of the two players but that's not how you sort out these situations. "Who squared up to who?". "Okay, but which is our more important player at the moment". That wouldn't happen. if they're frustrated that when they bought their ticket they hoped to see Stirling play and haven't been able to then express your anger at Southgates decision or, here's an idea, Stirling himself. Or grow up.
