    Harry ready to let Gomes go | Sky Sports
    [​IMG]

    Harry Redknapp admits Brazilian goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is likely to leave Tottenham Hotspur during the January transfer window.


    Gomes has endured a mixed career at White Hart Lane since his 2008 arrival from PSV Eindhoven and was linked with a return to the Dutch club at the end of last season.

    Spurs boss Redknapp has previously kept faith with Gomes and the 30-year-old started the first game of the season against Hearts in the Europa League.

    However, Redknapp has used summer signing Brad Friedel in the Premier League and Gomes has not even been on the bench for the last two games.

    Redknapp acknowledged Gomes is not happy at being left out and is prepared to let the keeper move on when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

    "He's not happy and he's eyeing a January move," said Redknapp. "If the chance comes for him to play elsewhere, I'm sure he'll take it.

    "I've not bombed out Gomes and made him No.3 keeper but we decided Carlo Cudicini would be better on the bench.

    "Gomes has trained hard but Friedel is fantastic. If ever there was a man who didn't deserve those two beatings by Manchester United and Manchester City, it was him."

    And that's my queue to be annoyed. What a ridiculous statement. Is he saying that Gomes WOULD deserve those two beatings if he was the one between the sticks??? Friedel still let those goals in and on at least two of the United goals didn't look bothered whether they went in or not. Gomes would've tried harder to save them and, owing to some of his out-of-nowhere saves in the past, may have got to two of Rooney's goals to save them.

    Just to clarify:

    With Gomes v United and City:

    Away to United - 2-0
    At home to City - 0-0

    Friedel v United and City:

    Away to United - 3-0
    At home to City - 5-1! :y9:

    Point taken, but I think the bulk of us feel that he would then of let in a howler agaisnt Wolves.Friedels consistent and commanding at the back, something Gomes will never be for us unfortunetly.

    Brad, at 40+ cannot be seen as a replacement for Gomes at 30+. If Gomes does leave in January, it will be a sad day for Gomes and the fans, as he is well loved at The Lane, despite some serious errors.
    Arry must already have an immediate replacement in mind for Gomes, if he does leave in the January window.

    Gomes was consistent and commanding in 2009.

    Wow. All I can say is we better have a big-time replacement lined up (preferably UNDER 40 this time?)

    Huge Gomes' fan myself. They are under the spotlight more as a mistake often results in conceding a goal, but if we went by shifting players out due to mistakes we wouldn't have a team left!

    I do think Friedel commands the defence more, and at 40 he is still capable of pulling off the fantastic saves as well as being a bit more solid than Big G, who had a similar reputation before he came to us. But I agree with [MENTION=1739]ParkLaneMal[/MENTION] that we must have a long term replacement lined up as Friedel surely doesn't have many more years in him, surely!?

    you can't compare the two GK's like that... the outfield team is more the reason to blame than the GK IMO they should be preventing any shots on goal so the GK should only be there as last resort...

    I rate both Gomes and Friedel, and I don't want to see Gomes leave in the winter, he's a brilliant talent and I think along side Friedel and Carlo he will up his game, he'll get a game either in the CC or Europa, thats his chance to prove himself and I believe he'll do just that and give everyone a headache of who to play next.

    No smoke without fire.
    Not hating on Friedel, but I'm trying to defend Gomes by highlighting flaws in Friedel.
    When Friedel signed for us, Harry dropped Gomes from the BENCH, let alone the first team.
    What other message would you have expected Gmes to receive? His confidence is definitely shot now that he's not even on the bench.

    And what exactly constitutes a costly mistake?
    Last time I checked, conceding eight goals in two games was.

    then Dawson, Kaboul, Walker & BAE should be dropped two as they are as much to blame as Friedel

    Well if that's the case, Harry is still going the wrong way about this issue.
    He said Friedel didn't deserve the beatings he got when on the team.
    However, when Gomes was on a losing team and gave away goals [like Friedel did by not making an effort to save Rooney's headers], all the criticism seemed to be levelled at Gomes instead of the leaky defence we had at the time!!

    At least two of those players were on the losing teams that Gomes was on, so where was the criticism of THEM at that time?
    Nowhere.

    all im saying is the team is to blame as they should prevent any shots on goal... and so far brad hasn't dropped any balls into the back of the net... the majority of the 8 scored (if not all) I don't think Gomes would have saved them as they were top notch goals!

    I don't want to see Gomes leave at all, but i also don't like everyone saying that Friedel is rubbish because he conceded 8 goals in two games against the two best teams in the league as they were unstoppable goals

    Brad is a top class keeper, seriously he saved our arse against wolves and as much as I like gomes he would of never got to that and we would of been 1-0 down and cursing him, Gomes has the ability to pull off some truly great saves but its like I said before he lacks the ability to command his area, you sh1t yourself everytime a cross comes in and you know hes always got the ability to pull "one of them off" on any given day.

    He relies to much on confidence and as a keeper consistency is better than a great save every now and then

    I love Gomes but if he wants to leave I wish him the best. I still think he will get a chance before January and when he does he has to take it. When he is confident, Gomes is one of the best. When he isn't, there's no point playing him. Gomes made too many mistakes last season but a shoddy defense did little to help him, he still won us points more often than he lost them for us. I just know that he wants to prove to everybody how good he can be and with Ledley in front of him I know he can return to his 09/10 form.

    Really though Gomes brought this on himself. He was given the nod away to Hearts, our first game of the season, and never looked composed. I would have dropped him as well.

    Noooooo :(

    Carlo and Brad are too old - we will need to buy TWO top class replacements in a year or two.

    I didn't say he was rubbish.
    All I'm asking for is fairness in the way that both Gomes and Friedel are critiqued.
    It just seems like whenever Gomes conceded goals, it was always deemed as 'his fault' and when Friedel conceded goals, it was always the outfield team's fault. Gomes of course would've conceded most of those goals. However, all the blame would be placed on him rather than the outfield defence, which isn't right. That's the message I'm getting from all this.

    I truly agree with you... but the reason Gomes gets the blame (which isn't right at all) is because of his flops he has done in the past... Friedel hasn't and everyone knows how good a GK he is, as he's been in the Premiership for years... Gomes is his own worse enemy behind all the people/pundits blaming him because he punches 99% on the time... and he makes stupid mistakes, mistakes that Brad is yet to make...

    I never blame the GK for good goals being conceded (Unless they should have saved them) but when they don't command their box and catch the ball from crosses then i will criticize them... however Gomes has not had the chance to prove himself this year and I really hope he gets a chance against Stoke or PAOK

    Harry won't need a long term replacement because he won't be here long term.....he got short term fixes in the summer to get him through the season then I reckon he's gone.I dunno wats goneOn between him and levy something don't seem right and I think they will be glad to see the back off each other if England come calling.....so Harry ain't bothered about Gomes leaving cause it won't be his problem to solve.

    Spot on don't really think Arry gives a damn . At this point I think Gomes should go simply because it will be better for his career all the crap going on at the club won't help him any. Brad is good but he still let some in like Gomes during Manure and City games but he isn't a long term solution. If things were better id use Gomes for the Europa league to shape him up again. Sadly this crap with Arry isn't helping our club at all.

    So Cudicini, who couldn't take Gomes' spot in all that time, suddenly he's better than Gomes. Bollocks, Arry.

    Such a shame if this happens.

    Fans fave for sure.

    Freidel will be with us for another season after this one, but a young gun we will have to get our hands on.
