Hopefully he gets back to fitness asap as the alternatives are a pale imitation.
Gives you exactly what you need agsinst the top teams, hardly ever beaten in a 1v1, solid in the tackle and experience.
It will be good to have Clyne back but I disagree with you saying Trent and Gomez are pale imitations
Both have been overall excellent in my opinion, with the odd mistake or drop off in games or moments here and there but that can be expected with kids.
I reckon 99% of teams would love to have two such great young potential in their squad.
Both will be excellent players, maybe they may move position... Joe into a cb and Trent into midfield but both have such a high ceiling in my opinion we are fortunate to have them
