He's hinted before he's interested in doing something in player agency
I think he has a different career path in mind.
Absolutely fantastic player in his first two seasons with us, not so good last year (not awful though!)
Definitely time to replace him as number 1 but sad he doesn't get a proper send off

I think this will also have a massive effect on Richarlison. Gomes is like his dad here.
Can't Britos adpot him? They're neighbours.
And Mrs Gomes?
Is married to Heurelho?
If he leaves I'll sign up to Twitter just to send him a nice message.
One of the Pozzo era Hall of Famers
according to his Instagram he proudly voted for a facsist this weekend. good for him!
Good article about HG on & off the pitch, perhaps his last game tonight depending on the result?
Clive would be interested in that article re the politics.
I believe he had a thread on that early season
Looks like Gomes is going to hang up his gloves at the end of this season. He'll be a bit of a loss around the place as he's such a big personality. Very good keeper and I'll personally miss his OTT goal celebrations.
He was an integral part of our promotion team and establishing Watford as a Premier League club.
Hopefully he'll get to play in one more game towards the end of the season, may even play him on Saturday!!
"The club didn’t sign me to play, they signed me to be their player. In my contract it doesn’t say that I have to play. When I am not playing they are still paying me, so I have to respect the club."
What an outstanding attitude. Legend without a doubt.
You'd have to think that sort of article in the programme, and the club going to the trouble of promoting it in advance, suggests they expect Saturday to be his last home game for us. If it is I hope people recognise it.
A last game in the cup final at Wembley eh!?
As said above excellent experienced keeper.
I love HG but I feel as though Foster should play in this. Foster has been outstanding this season and feel as though we should give ourselves the best chance possible. Hopefully HG can play the last home game of the season
I'm normally quite sentimental about these things, so part of me thinks play him all the way to the final, but the other part of me thinks play the best team (the best team based on JG judgement that is).
As for next season, surely Bachman and Dahlberg are good enough as back up, competing to impress as the number two choice. Saves us money in wages for another player upgrade elsewhere.
Nice interview on the fishal site
If he does retire in the summer I'd like to see him inducted into the hall of fame at the end of season nosh up
Gomes has had a call up from God:
There’s only one God at Vicarage road Heurelho, and if he has truly chosen to speak to you it’ll be to say, ‘concentrate on your job and stop those stripey Nigel's from scoring today’
Last game for us?
That's what I thought. The reaction seemed a bit OTT for last game at the Vic which is what most commentators seemed to think. I reckon that was his last game and Ben will play in the SF and (if we get there) final now. But if that is the case I think he should be given another league game at home towards the end of the season
Sub him on 5 minutes from the end of the West Ham game when we're already 3-0 up.
I'm sure they be considering something like that if the match isn't close in a game crucial to securing 11th spot.
And then sub Steve Palmer on with 4 mins to go.
I couldn't believe it when I saw GT had allowed SP to run out with the keeper shirt on in that game vs Muff, and play in goal for the first minute or so. Great times.
Likewise when we saw Bonham running out.
Assumed the half time goalie had pitch invaded.
If we have nothing to play for then why not start Dahlberg and bring Gomes on! Obviously I hope that means us in the final and clear of 8th rather than adrift of 7th and/or a Brighton/Wolves final!
Maybe just copy Mazzarri and end the season with 2 keepers on the bench? Everyone gets a go.
New 1yr deal. Sensible decision really. Another years progression for Bachmann/Dahlberg to then step up. And saves money on buying another GK.
Excellent news. Can put the Olsen rumour to bed now. Thank eff for that.
Seems an odd decision to me. He did well in the cup run, but things seemed to have finally caught up with him by the time the cup final came around. It'd also be surprising if Bachmann isn't seen as ready to step up yet to at least be back up, considering he's just completed a full season of first team football while winning a number of plaudits - unless he's going to go on loan again..
I can only hope that Gomes is just being kept on to help JP settle in when he arrives.
Fantastic news. And I sincerely hope he never plays another game for the club. Get Dahlberg out on loan and give Bachmann the no 2 spot.
