      Kid has all the tools...will he be able to use the most important one (his brain) and bring it all together consistently?

      There is so much to like about him, but he has to make sure that he doesn't turn into the defensive version of Jordan Ibe.

      Think we need to actually start playing him as a CB, think that’s partly why he switches off sometimes, playing out of position as a youngster, not the easiest thing to do whilst trying to make your mark in the team.

      Good to see he’s cut out getting so many cheap yellows now, that used to really piss me off. Was a card magnet at first.

      Looks the real deal for me. I think he and TAA are long term certainties. I hope Clyne makes it back, he will fit in there too. I don't mind Robertson either. In fact one if Van Dyke turns out to be any good, and Keita is similarly as promising then, we have the makings of a very balanced squad with some real quality specialists. However, GK is still a problem.

      He has lots of time to prove himself. We have first team players who are not even the real deal but have been starting for more than four years. Relatively lots of time and chances.

      Looks good to but has to be more aware of who is around him, only young but coming on in leaps and bounds.

      If we're looking at getting CL football next season and we're in the last 16 of the competition this year, I think starting Gomez with VVD straight awy would be quite risky. Putting him in with VVD next season from the start would be my preferred option. I do think he will be a big star for us but let's get our priorities in order first. I know Lovren, Matip and Klaven are not world beaters but they are seasoned pros in thier position with experience so Gomez and VVD for next season is a big yes from me.

      I'm of the same opinion, leave him at full back (where he is play No very well) and take a look at the CB role in the summer.
