I suppose they don't have to be, but what makes the Pogba situation unique is the fact that he did go on to become a world class player.It is not a lazy comparison since its another player not signing due to obviously crap first team players playing ahead. Why do they have to have the exact same ability for it to be a decent comparison? That is just silly because quite frankly when Pogba left people were also saying he wasn't that good when he got chances too!
Gomes has been one of our best performers at u18/u23 level over the past decade.
Gomes has shown his potential with us and that's why he was offered a pretty reasonable contract. Why he turned it down is something only he himself knows, but imo I dont think he's special enough to be given special treatment over everyone else. And I'd be shocked if he walks into Barca or Chelsea's first team tbh.
