England u20 match with he and Brandon Williams is on http://livesportsfm.co.uk
I listened to the game and it looks like Gomes had a much better 2nd half
Spoiler: Gomes actions as said by commentators
・Gomes pushed off the ball, no foul
・Gomes takes a poor corner, hits first man
・Gomes wins a fk
・Gomes turns on a half spin, finds Dozzell
・Gomes in the penalty area plays it out to Leko
・A "not so good" ball to Gomes, but Gomes does well and wins a fk through his trickery
・Through ball from Gomes to Lamptey for a half chance
・Gomes has the ball, has Bolton on the RW and Lamptey overlapping, goes inside, holds onto the ball, plays the ball back
・Gomes has had to come deep to get a sniff of the ball throughout the game according to commentators
・Gomes gives the ball away cheaply
・Gomes does his defensive work really well, and finds Gallagher
・Played to Gomes and loses it
・lovely through ball played by Gomes to Leko
・Gomes drives forward and wins a fk
・lovely turn from Gomes looking for options and passes it out
・Gomes to Leko
・Gomes beats his man and gives it to Leko
・Gomes to Dozzell, to Gomes to Dozzell
・Gomes involved in a good chance created by Gallagher's threaded ball
・Gomes does well driving forward, and wins a fk though commentator thinks he lost the ball cheaply/deservedly
・Williams to Gomes to Gallagher
・Beats his man and wins a fk, gets taken out as soon as he won the fk
・Gomes comes deep passing it around
・Gomes does well to beat his man, and pulls the ball back to Dozzell who puts it over the bar after a bit of uncertainty from the commentators
・Gomes puts himself in there, whatever that means
・Gomes exploding into the pen area after receiving pass from Williams, plays it to Clarke, gets it back and gets taken down with Dutch player falling down too. Gomes had nice feet in that play. No clear description on the falling down bit. Might have lost his footing.
・Gomes drove forward and ref whistles on another player
・Gomes plays the ball forward, and went a bit too far, but then Clarke receives it
・Gomes plays it out to Loader.
・Gomes plays a ball out to the side
・Williams bombs forward and goes on a long run with the ball, gets a little push from the back and goes down, but the ref doesn't award a pen. Sounds like a Giggs Arsenal run is how the commentator is making it out to be.
・Loader to Gomes, who holds onto the ball in the box, then passes it to Gallagher who presumably hits it and commentator wants a hand ball
Doesn’t sound half bad against the Dutch. How is that Dutch u20 team? Thanks for the update!
They don't look particularly great. The great Dutch talents are Ihatteren, Gravenberch, and Unuvar. They're in that 2002-2003 generation.
Gomes came on for the last 15 minutes of the u20 match. Looked really good and you can easily see how much better his technical ability is compared to everyone else on the pitch. More impressive when the camera angle is a bit closer to the pitch as opposed to it being from the usual distance overhead.
Seriously what is the managers beef with Angel Gomes? He was one of the most impressive players in pre-season and has further impressed in the youth games too. He has also attracted interest from clubs such as Barcelona and has an expiring contract and yet our manager still doesn't feel the need to give him game time despite our lack of quality in areas Gomes excels in.
He will start in the Europa game along with greenwood
He'll leave on free and we'll regret it.
Should have got mins today especially for perriara who looks way off the pace for premier league football.
Needs to start those cup games otherwise he might leave for Barca/PSG.
He did well today on the bench, showed his patience and learned alot from watching the game.
Ole rates him so little that we might as well sell him in January. At least get some money for him.
I hope so, not that optimistic however after what I saw in preseason
You telling me he couldn't do better than Mata today? Mata was like a cone on the pitch.
Will get his time.
Didn't think this was the right match for him. If we'd been 2-0 up perhaps.
This is getting ridiculous, we don't have any player fitting for the 10 position and this guy isn't getting a single minute of football.
Yup felt the same. He'll get minutes in the midweek
With Leicester rampaging and physical and chasing the game, would be throwing his golden lamb to the slaughter and possible injury. He will get his time this season for sure. So many matches to play.
Hope he grabs his chances whenever he gets it. I'm baffled as to why he's so far behind the pecking order. Pereira, Mata and Lingard are absolutely trash.
Greenwood and Chong should be behind him too.
If he doesnt get a start in EL, think he wont see much minutes until contract is resolved.
He needs to get out. We don't have any interest in playing a technical style of football that will be suited to players like him. And thats why he will be out of his place in this team even he got minutes in the cup.
His contract expires in January apparently.
But it was for Chong ?
Yes, because they have completely different attributes. Chong has a bigger physical presence than Gomes at this point, and was asked to stretch Leicester and battle.
You could say Gomes MAY have also stretched Leicester but I would never risk him right now. He's that good. Chasing in desperation perhaps, but not when we are edging a 1-0 tough fought match on the backfoot. hence Tuanzebe came on too. Patience.
Calm your tits you cnuts. He’ll get his chances.
Yes. Might do more damage than good if he had a bad one.
I'm a big Ole supporter, but his treatment of Gomes is really starting to piss me off.
He should have come on for Mata. Couldn't have done worse than Mata.
He will leave in my honest opinion. There is absolutely no way he see's shite like Mata and Lingard getting games in front of him and thinks yeah let me sign a new long term deal. He's not even coming off the bench or anything.
For his sake, the boy should leave. Should be ahead of pereira and mata easily.
Chong hasn't shown any sign he's physically ready for the premier league.
right decision not to use him today
I'm sure he'll get minutes Thursday
Was poor in last u23s to be fair. Chong did well to say hard to knock it too much
A lot of people on here are going to be disappointed when they finally see Gomes.
The strength of people's opinion despite never having seen him play in any meaningful game is incredible really.
fecking September in a game where we were struggling.
Was the right choice. Come back early next year with this shit.
Yeah it was dreadful to watch Mata today. And this so why precisely why people are impatient to see the kids. Our first team options are pointless at this moment in time. It's a great opportunity to give some youngsters a go
actually did today though
Oh great thread bumped by the panicking brigade, blah blah lad will leave for Barca as he'll get games there etc etc etc, same old silly rubbish.
Wasn't the right match for him today, he'll get games very soon, it's obvious.
I didn't think the match against Leicester was the right game for him to come on. It would be a very hard task for him to change anything, and if Gomes isn't able to impact anything then there is no point of playing him. If he can get on the ball easily, you should absolutely play him. He should have gotten minutes against Wolves and Palace.
I don't get it, why are people so anxious if he leaves anyway? I've seen people say that even Pogba can leave if we are able to replace him, so why the hysteria around someone of much lesser quality?
Was not the game to sub him on in. Thought he should've started but as we had the lead, fully agreed with Ole's subs.
