Yeah I know the feeling... My real name's RerpesFor that Gomes, we were wrong. Because he was Brazilian it would have been Go-mez. So you're right.
Andre Gomes is indeed Go-mejsh. There's a little j sound in there but mostly the sshhh at the end.
For example Raul Meireles was not 'muh-rel-ez', like in Spanish it's more like 'muh-relsh'.
Brazilian Portuguese can be a funny language. For example Fred is pronounced 'Fre-jee' and Hulk 'Hoo-kee'.
Neither Portuguese pronounce the R in words starting with R, so Ricardo is 'Hicardo'.
Pretty annoying when your first name is Ross!
I'm guessing that there are no DMs available right now that Mourinho wants and that Levy is keeping his powder dry for the summer on that one. I expect GF is on pretty low wages as well which BF certainly won't be.Great to see us invest in more personnel. I hope we've done our homework and he turns out to be a good investment.
Strikes me of an opportunistic signing that has come around after the loss of Sissoko.
I do find it odd that we are happy to spend 50 plus million on a player that wasn't a priority a month ago.
All whilst a player who has been wanted by us, our previous and present manager and would be the obvious replacement for the historically vital Eriksen is likely to go for 60m. Abit weird.
With the Portuguese links tho, I guess I’d still be dreaming for Neves. He’d certainly make sense for our midfield.I'm guessing that there are no DMs available right now that Mourinho wants and that Levy is keeping his powder dry for the summer on that one.
