NewCorkSeth Some dude on Twitter who appears to know w lot about Portuguese players is very complimentary about this guy. Says hes a certain future international for Portugal. Shot stopping, ball at feet and command of his area all strkng points. Only possible weakness he mentions is one on ones.

That would be maffff - he's clueless.

This signing could be the beginning of the end for Gomes if he isn't able to get in firepower up top. Flamboyant continental keepers might look good with their feet in a play out from the back system but when you need to grind out results at Barnsley away in December then he might get found out.

John Smith's been hacked by a random cliche generating spambot and it's actually an improvement.

There's just no pleasing you lot is there. What do you want me to say about us taking Everton's youth keeper on loan?

Well, you could give the old "flamboyant continental not hacking it on a cold December night in Barnsley" shite a miss, it's so Ron Atkinson, 1991.

El Diablo Watching a couple of you tube clips, I can understand why Jose likes him, he's good with the ball at his feet, and distribution looks good too...but he's not particularly tall, looks like he likes to punch the ball, and for me is going to find the EFL a step up.
As mentioned , physically he may find it harder too. Whilst there's no doubt he's got talent, I think this is a big risk for jose to take.
Hope the risk pays off, but this guys is defo not a Martinez.



Not particularly tall... He has 1ft on Kelly at least :lol:

Taking shots at someone who left due to mental health issues. Nice.

Anyone know what his contract situation is?

Trnsfrmkt suggests he has only one year to run on his current contract

seems odd if he's that highly-rated

I did see a story that Everton were looking to extend his contract ahead of sending him out on loan. Sensible if he does well for us tbh.

Never saw that. Hope he's ok. Not been a fan of his on here if I'm honest, but if he has MH issues and isn't just a pcunt then he has my sympathies.
