The Sun know what they're doing. They've always incited outrage over minor things. Maddison was only spotted there between 8 and 9pm. Hardly a Gazza-esque bender straight out of the 90s.

 

 

 

You didn't see his dentist chair in Mosh at 2am

Interesting opinion, personally I’d say Italia 90 was a boring tournament from start to finish. We scrapped through our group with one win against Egypt, beat a Belgian side who are nothing like the level of the current one in ET and then beat a Cameroon side who in Robson’s words “couldn’t play”.... I’d certainly not say it was any harder than the last World Cup. But then I was knee high to a grass hopper at the time so maybe I missed something.

 

He is doing a good job, at least relatively compared to recent managers, some of his predecessors have been blessed with some of the best player we’ve produced and haven’t achieved what he has. It’s a results based business and he has got the results, that simple. He’s got to the last four of his last two major competitions and despite Friday night (which admittedly was a disgrace) we are qualifying for 2020 at a canter.

 

 

 

But what's the point? 

 

We will qualify, of course we will the whole process has been manipulated so it almost impossible for the bigger teams not to qualify. 

 

But then we get there, we will again be in an easy group, because they want the big nations in the knockouts, we will get to the quarters and play France/ Germany / Italy / Belgium / Holland / Spain or Portugal and just lose. 

 

Because we don't have what we as a country had in 1990, which is fight and passion, this current team would prolly have just gone off crying if they played that Cameroon team, that was a battle not a football match. 

 

Friday against CZ we had no fight in us at all.

Not sure why anyone gives a ****? It's not like Gareth would have played him even if he was fit. 

Maddison would certainly have had more excitement and entertainment in a casino, rather than watching a truly dire England performance.

The FA sent him home. That’s the official line anyway so I don’t see why all the fuss? Before anyone gets on their high horse, I’m sure most of us have done things we shouldn’t have morally been doing when we’ve been off work ill. He was in his own time.

I’m sure we wouldn’t make the news if we did though. Just a bit silly from him really.

Plain daft of Maddison to be putting himself in the spotlight whilst the game was actually going on.

 

Only a week or so ago he was being interviewed and explaining his desire about wanting to play for England and he came across pretty well.

Then a few days later, he can not even be arsed to watch his fellow team mates.

 

Wonder what our reaction would be if this had happened at LCFC ?

LCFC qualify for Europe, Maddison doesn’t travel, then is seen out and about whilst we are playing

It all seems a bit weird. I've not seen any social media from him saying he's disappointed to have to withdraw, which is really unlike him.

 

Disappointed that Gareth Southgate didn't publicly stand up for him more, even if in private he then laid into him. Surely part of his job is to protect the younger players from the press? I don't know what's going on there really - presumably GS has taken badly to the criticism he's had in not playing him and doesn't want to be proven wrong.

I expect Gareth is a but defensive right now.. let's see if he gets a reaction in Bulgaria... and how he uses both stick and carrot

Maddison never gets to play for England? Lose a few matches and they will panic like they always do , probably make him captain or maybe player manger after sacking South gate.

I'm not saying JM did a 'bad thing' - I just think it would've been wiser to keep a lower profile this weekend.

And I'm asking why? The reason people say this, isn't because there is anything wrong with what he did, as you say. But because they know the media will try and warp it... which is frankly bollocks and everyone needs to be grown up enough to know that. Especially those involved with England.

I'm sure it's happened loads of times where players who were ill, suspended or dropped didn't bother turning up for matches.

 

And over many years I've heard of many examples where dropped, banned or injured players are actually pleased when their team does badly without them.

Some footballers are just not that into watching football , Seem to remember Gazza saying he hardly ever watched it during his playing career .

Reported by the SUN get over it, what the fcuk its got to do with anyone what he dose in is own time.

Even Southgate said as much. It’s almost as if some players can’t step out of the front door of the house without someone digging up shit about them.

Hope he won more than England did.

He can do whatever he wants in his own time. However if he is keen on getting into the England team then it wasn’t the best idea. If he’s not fussed, then not an issue at all.

If I understand what's going on correctly (which I may not because I don't really give a shit so I've not looked into it), why does anybody care what a player does in their free time?  I'm just imagining all the moaners showing up to work on their sick days to watch their colleagues out of 'loyalty' lol

It was his timing more than anything, as if he was trying to prove a point and get himself in the news. Just not wise imo.

What is the problem here.

 

He isn't "skiving" work. 

 

He's on an international break - not supposed to be in Leicester training, not supposed to be in England training camp - so he can do whatever he wants , law permitting. Is anyone complaining that Wes Morgan was out shopping at Lidl? or that Marc Albrighton was having a haircut?

 

I expect the sun to talk rubbish but why on earth are supporters even questioning this? Especially Leicester supporters?

I'm sure he genuinely was ill during the week, but then felt better on Friday. However, he has to be smarter and realise it's not going to look good if he gets caught on a night out. This just gives Southgate another excuse not to give him that first cap.

So the Sun vor to you too..!!

He was ill,Not dying!!

I belong to the old fogies-brigade,But the Suns Story is a non-story.He wasnt well enough to Play a game at International-level,Maybe even Club level.

That Shouldnt Stop him going out...IMO only the "Sun" Type Minded People will find fault with it.

If cant be compared with a normal Workers life...8hrs a day 5-6 days a week. Where you would try to curtail the Silent as  quick as possible..

None of you are Doctors,you dont know what illness Problem he had,or what ailed him...

 

But you lot carry on enjoying the crap all the poor Reporters dishes out under the presence of "Newsworthy"

from  the greatest newspaper since the Dino-herald..!!

Ffs. Some of you should Really get a life,und if you find one,intigrate all Sun reporters/Readers and Soap-lovers to your new found group.

Why? They released him from the squad, it's not like he phoned in sick. From the moment he was released his only concern should be Leicester and when he trains / plays for us. He can't play again for England for another month, so him playing a couple of hands in a casino doesn't affect him or England in any way whatsoever. Other than the press wanting to whip up a load of gullible people into thinking he's actually done something wrong.
