Last night I was disappointed with Gomes once again, he had a bit of a shocker in both legs against Real and you can see it is making our defenders also panic because they are losing confidence in the guy.
I love Gomes as much as the next fan but it’s not like he makes one mistake in every ten games it seems to be almost every game and as of late they have resulted in goals. Whenever we concede a corner I shit myself with worry that Gomes will flap at the ball and I can’t take it anymore.
Last night against Arsenal his positioning for the Nasri goal we very poor but the main incident was the van Persie goal that was given offside, Gomes was a very lucky boy as the ball went straight at him and through his hands. Gomes seems to be making mistakes that not even a Sunday league keeper would make and on a regular basis.
It’s true he can pull off a good save but so he should, he is a professional for crying out loud and that is what I expect but if I am worried about him making a mistake from a corner or whatever then how do you think the likes of Dawson and Gallas feel when they are defending and have to rely on him?
I am sorry to all the Spurs fans that love Gomes because I too love him but it’s in our own interests to get somebody in who we can rely on to do the simple stuff.
