yes, the tears over Gomes are a bit pathetic. I know he was a nice guy, but very little justification to keep him on
He didn't f*cking fail! He wasn't given a chance to fail because the out of touch with reality 'instant success' brigade, and that includes the owners, pushed him out.
Gomes' record, giving the circumstances (inherited shit squad, low in morale and then hit FFP) wasn't that bad. He kept us up against the odds, got the fans back on side (now clearly undone by his sacking and the rumoured appointment of his little sh*t boss), and got us playing better, more attractive, football and to a point where things, given a bit of patience, would more than likely have clicked into place.
If Clement had had Martinez, Miazga, Ejaria and Baker he could have kept us up also. Not sure Gomes did that much of an amazing job.
Maybe Gomes didn't, but the Club need the fans onside and this appointment does the opposite - negativity before its even official. Hopefully he can prove everybody wrong but as many have said, the Championship needs an experienced pair of hands - he has never done this in his own right and if he is such a good no2, why has no other club taken the gamble on him?..............worrying times
