The Gana/Gomes partnership

Titus Bramble

Best centre half to grace the Premier League
Very early days but they are a good combination of industry and breaking up play with the technique to take the ball in a tight spot and keep us moving positively.

Will be interesting to see how they get on for the rest of the season


Player Valuation: £8m
Gomes is like a younger more mobile Barry. Hopefully like Barry we will buy him at the end of his loan spell. The perfect combination particularly in home games. Gomes will be good for Davies to learn from as they are similar types just Gomes is more the finished article and Davies is just starting out. McCarthy dovetailed well with Barry so he'll probably be good back up for Gueye. Haven't enjoyed such a good blend in the midfield since Martinez first season. They also seem to trust each other!
