Depends who replaces Gana

Unless you're thinking of keeping him for another 5/6 years?





Gonna have to be someone bloody good to go Gomes and sigurdssons work. Could do with a playmaker too seeing as sigurdsson isnít really up to it. A Messi Kante hybred maybe. Or we could just not keep sigurdsson and Gomes

That's basically the problem with our midfield options. All specialists, no balanced skill sets.

If you're the opposition, all you have to do is force one player to do something he's not comfortable with and the whole thing goes to shit.

And the "one of them" is usually Sigg, Gomes is much more capable of switching roles.
I still despise Clive Thomas..

Canít be arsed reading this thread but based on other threads would hazard a guess the jist is Gomes is not good enough....I may be wrong..

My 2 cents ......anyone who thinks Gomes is not good enough or we shouldnít sign him needs to stop smoking their toenails....

Still dependant on fee and wages for me.

Would like to see him in a three as well where he can just be pretty and fancy and occasionally slip through players like an oiled ferret.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

I like him, but I won't be upset if we don't sign him. He's not what our midfield is crying out for unfortunately. Having said that, I could see him being far more effective if we replaced Sigurdsson with a truly creative no.10.

I don't think he is defensively good enough to play in a 2 man midfield, or at least not alongside Gana. Gana is our best ball winner by far but has a tendency to wander all over the pitch which leaves Gomes exposed on his own once they pass him. The thing is that most of his career he has played further up the pitch, or at least with a proper DM behind him. That's why I'd like to see him play with Schneiderlin. He wouldn't use up all his energy chasing shadows in defence and can concentrate on what he is good at which is linking defence to attack.

Good player just not what I think we need, considering the balance of the others in the squad.

Yep, think he needs to be a link player. At the moment has nobody to link with.

Another fun fact - out of all the centre midfield pairings in the league, have a guess who is bottom for chances created.

I'll give you a clue, it's us and we're shite.

To me, he's our most balanced midfielder.  I can't see the case for NOT signing him, if the fee is reasonable.
