Thankfully we don't have to pick, and I trust Javi enough to make the decision. I am sure he will not pick Gomes if he believes it will effect our chances of winning. He's in a better place to know than I am. Yes, 100% sentimentality behind my desire to see him play. But I don't think it will effect our chances in the slightest. Gomes has a fair shout for being the best 'keeper we've ever had. That his skills have deteriated are an assumption you are making based on your insecurities and tendency towards conservatism and fear of change. I have seen nothing that indicates to me that Gomes can't do the job as well as Ben would. If Ben were injured for the rest of the season I wouldn't bat an eye lid. But wet your panties if you wish.
