Wonder if that has anything to do with Brands binning him off in a former job . :thumbsup:

Might also be because Brands seems to value some degree of professional competence over golfing holidays and brasses from Ellesmere Port.

I don't think Gomes is good enough to be in a two man central midfield. I'd only ever see him in a three as a link-play-together, sit deep kind of option.

If we go with Gomes and AN Other as a central two next year, I think we're in for a lot of games on the back foot, minimal passes into feet in the final third, lots of out balls and long balls, and not disturbing any of the top teams yet again.

I'm still very much in the 'Brands needs to have a good summer' camp. I'm quite unapologetic about it, and think it's a completely reasonable, justifiable opinion at this point.

At best, his signings have been a mixed bag. Plenty of money spent. Sort the midfield out this summer, fella, and there'll be plenty of praise coming your way.

Aside from the 5 year contract thing, I quite enjoyed Roger Armstrong going in hard. Difficult to disagree with a lot of what he said.
