Cant we have both?

Not sure both would work, especially if we manage to keep Gana.

Must be playing Barca here because there will be a list as long as your arm after tongy.

Heís the perfect Fernandinho replacement like but I think we stand a good chance of getting him.

Come to us lad, spend three years here then when your hitting your prime make the big move.

Players like this get lost amongst the shuffle hitting the elite clubs too early.

Lads, Tom Davies beats him all ends up in the stats.

More passes, forward passes, interceptions, blocks, tackles, chances created etc.

Interesting that.

And never before has the saying that stats can be misleading been more true.

Why though?

I think it proves Tom Davies is a lot better than people give him credit for and offers a lot to the team

And while Gomes has been good, it is a valid critique to say he doesnít impact the game as much as he probably should.

I would still much has Gomes in the team
than Davies though.

Mate thereís more to chance creation than passing a ball directly into the feet of someone who takes a shot at goal, or whatever the measure is for however those stats are measured.

Itís the three players infront of him that should be judged on chance creation anyway.

Do we also take into account he games Gomes has been involved in? United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool....compared to the 'lesser' teams Davies has played in, and hence, easier games to influence?

Thatís got to be taken into account like.

Would like to see them both in the side at one point myself, but thatís probably involves dropping Gana or Sigurdsson and you canít be doing that.

Motm for me probably richarlison, worked hard and took his goal well.

Side in general disappointing but not surprising - we struggle to break teams down from open play.

Gomes good first half, but in general the game highlighted the issue of our lack of progressive passers.

Having a nice tidy midfielder who can turn their striker three times then play it sideways to gueye doesnít help all that much in those games.


Youíre trying too hard now.

He was the best player on the park by an absolute fucking mile.

What have I said thatís so wrong? Mad mentality this you know.

I havenít even directly criticised him! Just on last nights showing, which we know already, we donít have enough creativity in midfield.

Thatís true, but there were four other midfielders on the pitch and you seem to be putting all the blame on Gomes, when he was actually the most progressive player on the park.

Because heís the one weíre considering spending 30m+ on!

Sigurdsson Iíve made my feelings clear on.

Tosun Iíve made my feelings clear on.

Lookman has a bad game and the case for starting Walcott became a bit clearer imo.

But he has so much more to offer in other aspects of his game.

You really watched him last night and came away thinking heís not progressive enough?

Wouldnít pay anything over 35mil from what Iíve seen so far.

Do really like him though and any issues in the midfield are with the two midfielders around him in Gana and Sigurdsson.

If we donít buy him brands will have somebody else just as good lined up.

Donít stress. Enjoy him while heís here and what happens, happens.

Heís really slow like.

I do like him but he can get exposed.

Iíd prefer to have big Kurt alongside him.
