You're right to some extent, but it was a reality check. Personally I don't worry about the cost, I'm worried about getting the best players we can, and I think he's at the higher end of what we can attract, so we should be trying to get him, imo

Shown glimpses of what he is capable of in his first season in the premier league, definitely enough to warrant purchasing at that kind of price.  Can only get better as he gets fitter, plays a full pre-season and continues to adapt to the league... I think he'll go on to be an absolute hero here, Arteta levels IMO, he has the potential to be that good if everything clicks in to place.

He's been OK, when you balance out his good stuff (that people overrated) and his bad stuff, he's been OK and I'd be more than happy to have him at the club going forward.

Being romantic, he COULD be even better than he has been which would be genuinely good, but we really need to support him with 2 new good quality CM's with different profiles.

A two way DM who can destroy and move up the pitch and pass a bit, and a creative player who can dribble, create and score from CM.

Gomes is class. Don't know why there's even remotely a debate about wanting to keep him. I know he can be a bit flaky but there are genuine reasons why that might be so.

It's not, is it. It's taking the market as it currently stands into account when determining whether a figure represents value for money. Picking players from 10 and (nearly) 30 years ago and their transfer fees, not to mention pedigree is "a bit daft" when trying to emphasise a point, though. But then, hyperbole.

The market doesn’t currently stand there. We wouldn’t get 45m for sigurdsson cos we overpaid. So yes it is nonsense. Gomes at 25m or infinite Bernards?

Look at 25m Gomes would be a decent signing. Comparing him to bad signings to prove that is nonsense though

Is Sigurdsson a bad signing or is he just overpriced? Because there is a difference

He’s certainly a bad signing for the price we paid.

He’s arguably a bad signing as he was the wrong type of player that we needed at the time.

The pursuit of Sigg was mental, took up so much time,energy and money when other things were more important, no lesson learned though as the Silva chase was equally puzzling.

gylfi is getting targeted because of the price tag, he didnt put his value at 45 million. the whole team is playing shite apart from a few. without gylfi this season we would be in relegation zone, or very near to it. produces a lot more for the team than gomes does by a country mile.

Not for me mate Siggs an ornament compared to Gomes, it's all about opinions and we all see different things in players and matches, it's why the games so popular, although no fun for us at the mo.

i dont get where you're coming from,ive watched gomes and really wanted him to perform, but apart from a few pieces of skill/class hes disapointed me, but maybe thats more to do with the system they are being forced to play. but youre right in that its all about opinions bud

he was overpriced by 10/15 million, but that was our clubs fault pursuing him has they did and making it so public.
i really rate him as a player
