Doesn’t sound half bad against the Dutch. How is that Dutch u20 team? Thanks for the update!I listened to the game and it looks like Gomes had a much better 2nd half
・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
They don't look particularly great. The great Dutch talents are Ihatteren, Gravenberch, and Unuvar. They're in that 2002-2003 generation.Doesn’t sound half bad against the Dutch. How is that Dutch u20 team? Thanks for the update!
He will start in the Europa game along with greenwoodSeriously what is the managers beef with him? He was one of the most impressive players in pre-season and has further impressed in the youth games too. Angel Gomes 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.
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.But it was for Chong ?
Chong hasn't shown any sign he's physically ready for the premier league.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.
Was poor in last u23s to be fair. Chong did well to say hard to knock it too muchSeriously what is the managers beef with Angel Gomes?

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 goYou telling me he couldn't do better than Mata today? Mata was like a cone on the pitch.
