    Gomes' partner vs Arsenal

    ....thinking back, Davies was terrific earlier in the season alongside Gomes. I doubt Davies will start, but some players just gel, they could be an unlikely but successful partnership.

    ...if I remember rightly, Wilkins and Robson started the tournament but Robson got injured and Wilkins got suspended. In came Hoddle with Reid and England’s fortunes took off.

    ...what a terrific player he was for us. Him and Paul Power were so instrumental in that title winning effort.

    ...our record at these grounds suggests this type of prediction is reasonable. its up to us to change that perception and we can only do this on the pitch.

    ....this is the type of game we need to start winning if we are truly to step up a level. Manchester United went to Chelsea and won in the week, but we rarely trouble teams in that group away from home.

    ....i thought exactly the same. I don’t think it does any harm comparing a youngster to an established professional. We’re not saying they are at the same level, we’re saying they are the same ‘type’. Simms seems a similar type to Abraham.

    ...I can’t see how long Simms has left on his contract. It has to be a factor with folk wanting to send him on loan, as it might run his current deal down and he might be tempted elsewhere. Similarly, we give him an extended deal and have a Garbutt situation.

    ...or perhaps the players you mention are simply superior. It’s an interesting point you make which is why I highlighted where DCL and Kean were at the same age. Saying that, playing youngsters in open-age football isn’t a recipe for success, but I do think there’s an argument for the old...

    ....interesting to split Academy players into two categories; those that have come through the ranks and those purchased for the Academy. We probably haven’t done too bad. Kenny and Davies have come through the ranks and got plenty of game time in recent times. Gordon is on the verge, Dowell...

    ...he’s not as prolific as last season but he’s certainly got an eye for a goal. When they largely kept him in his own age group last season (despite stepping up the likes of Gordon) I wondered if the coaches didn’t think he was worth the hype, but he’s looking decent. Personally, I wouldn’t be...

    ...I don’t think so, Matey, a lot of competition but perhaps not a lot of quality in our available defensive midfielders. He can really get around the pitch, must be a nightmare to play against. I did think his boat had sailed, but Unsworth’s recent comments were interesting in that he’s fit...

    .....it’s not only about the style of play, football has always been a mix of quality, attitude, desire, blend and hard work. The term ‘school’ is also lots to do with values, ethics and decency. I’d hope we never lose sight of that in this age of mega-money.

    ....there is, Joey. An FA Youth Cup winning side often contains a very special player, but sometimes there is a true spread of future professionals. That ‘98 team was certainly the latter, just think of the first team games Osman and Hibbert played for us. Osman, Jeffers and Dunne all became...
