Will be interesting to see how Alfie Mawson plays against us tonight. I rate him and think he has a good future, and he’s quite vocal as well, which we have been lacking.

And we've just spent 75 mil to address that 😉.

Yes Argy,
I logged on to see if my post was there and started reading yours and thought it was mine.

I know we have signed Van Dijk but there are question marks against the other 3 and Gomez may not be ready yet.

By that Gomez logic, how on earth is Mawson more ready? If we are to sign another CB it needs to be another one of true quality. Gomez is our potential CB, Mawson would only block his path without adding to our quality.

Have you watched Gomez tonight? Every game he dives in or commits himself and gives the ball away for fun. Gomez is light years away from playing centre back and if Mawson came here he certainly wouldn’t be blocking Gomez’s path. It would be up to Gomez to up his game if he wants his place.

He’d been so poor defending and attacking on the first half I’d bring TAA on straight away.

To be fair, Klavy, VVD is the vocal defender we have been missing. Two of them could get confusing, especially if they don't agree!

Goalkeeper needed!

So we should just bin the Gomez experiment then, right? Alfie Mawson may be a good player BUT we cannot on one hand say, we should give our young boys a chance and on the other side say, we should bring in players who IMO, have less ability than him as he is the total package as a defender. Mawson is not.

only thing is, Gomez, while playing well, has been caught out four or five times now, and we have conceded goals, let's be fair here, if that was moreno, we would be all be having a go at the loss of concentration,
every point is vital, and 2nd place seems far away now,
Swansea had a better game plan .

Time to give Gomez a rest, he is making far too many errors, maybe TAA would make a difference, on their goal, bad marking, and we had players actually moving away from our goal while the ball was still alive .

agree, I think Gomez needs a rest and probably needs some time as CB, he does okay as a full back but his end product was really poor tonight. he tried to hit a few first time balls in when he had plenty of time to find team mates and just gave it back to them. I only watched about half the game but he did it at least 4 times whilst I was watching.
