Hope this is like plan number #15 for CM. But I would still take him over doing nothing like we did last year. Thought he looked strong offensively when he came on Saturday.

I don’t mind it.

A lot of the complaints seem to center around his lack of pace but I don’t see him as much slower than Winks and he would essentially play the exact same role for us. Which would be perfect so we don’t run Winks straight into the ground again.

Gomes is very decent, not sure why he gets the derision over somebody like Ndombele who most of you have seen ~1 time.

He’s definitely not a bad option, he’s just not very physically mobile in my opinion. Ndombele bossed the midfield against city and Barcelona, he also looks extremely dynamic, dribbling similar to Dembele

Yep, decent player. I watched him closely v Everton and he was quite productive in terms of passing and keeping play ticking over. Wouldn't say no to him joining but he's not enough on his own - we need 2 CM signings IMO.

For sure, from what I’ve seen I’d love Ndombele. I just don’t get the sneering at Gomes

2 minimum imo. Possibly 3 - which is asking a lot of dear Mr. Levy.

He has the passing and creativity our midfield really lacks but his mobility is an issue.

A few games he’s been picked out for jogging back when his team is under attack but I think his frame makes him look lazy when he isn’t too bad.

Gomes is a little bit of a meh player. Not very exciting, and I think we’ve been so lacking in CM all season that it makes Gomes look more appealing than he actually is.

He’s a decent player, and would surely be better than nothing, but as CL regulars and finalists!! We should be aiming for better.

Are there any good highlights videos of him? I had a look and could find one featuring mainly one game for Valencia vs Real Madrid with the same goal shown 3 times and one for Everton where the first minute was him walking out and lining up before the game.
