Another great home performance/ clean sheet. Really hope we can keep hold of Zouma.

And Scheiderlin has shown in the last 3 games he's still that player from his first season.

As much as I'd love us to sign Gomes if we can't and he goes to spurs etc Schneiderlin has shown he's a more than capable replacement.

Brilliant second half of the season and should give us all huge optimism for next season.

Now onto Spurs who I'm super confident we will beat and it's been a successful season imo

Yes great performance tonight, what would the score have been if we had a good goal scorer?
It seems to me we can manage without Gomez but need to keep Zouma and Gaye if possible.

It was a great performance dark clouds and good to see you have moved a long way from your stance over the season that Silva wouldn't and shouldn't last the season.
Unfortunately I agree with you on the need for a good goal scorer. DCL has played really well and will be some player in the future but doesn't yet finish as well as we need him to, I don't believe we should go into next season without a 20 goal a season striker and that must be one of Brands key priorities
Gomez and Zouma are also priorities for us (as well as keeping hold of all the players that started last night) If it was a straight choice between Gomez and Scheiderlin then Gomez would be in my side every time but we probably need both to cover dips in form, injuries and suspensions

At the end of the day it's pleasing the way we are finishing the season but frustrating because of the couple of months and poor performances. What If?

Not yet convinced about him, but do accept that jumped the gun on Silva needing to go, all based on evidence of his CV in the Prem. He has had a full season now, let's see what recruitment and Departures bring in the Summer. Absolutely made up with our form end of season, next season we need the consistency of say new boys Wolves, they are the ones going to challenge our aspirations for top 6.

Make no mistake Schneiderlin has come in and done a decent job in Gomes' absence but to say he's an adequate replacement is far off the mark. If we want to improve we have to sign a higher calibre of player than MS, remember this guy has been missing for almost 2 seasons and because he's had 3 decent games you want him back in the team full time? Thankfully, I don't believe this will be Brands or Silva's plan.

04 May 2019 11:37:20
It will be interesting to see who plays against Spurs. I believe Gomes will be back in the side. He brings a creativity that Schneiderlin can't emulate and we will need that against a team like Spurs away.

04 May 2019 13:33:06
Don't change a winning team unless you have to bluemike. Gomes will have to win his place back.

Schneiderlin was superb in his first season, we were all fawning over him that year! His next season wasn't up to scratch yet that could be said of the entire squad as we struggled under 3 different managers. Him being linked to a training ground spat and being sent home (not even sure if this was true? ) with KM seemed to put the fans against him and he never really recovered from that for some time. He'd get pelters for every mistake when he was on the pitch, booed when he was brought on etc. He may have only had a few appearances of late but he has proved that he is good enough to be part of the squad. There will be suspensions, injuries and loss of form for players during the next season so he will be needed. Going out and paying huge fees to bring in a player in the same position is silly really when you take into account that we need cover in other areas more desperately, CF, RB etc. I hope he can continue to prove his doubters wrong and get the fans back on side, on his day he is quality so let's give him the platform to play without fear of being made a fans scapegoat and get behind the lad whenever selected to wear the shirt.

{Ed025's Note - im with you there BP, i was not happy with the training ground incident i must say, but everyone deserves a second chance and lately he has proved to be an asset to the club mate..

04 May 2019 14:21:12
Totally agree ed025, if he can continue with this form and even step it up a gear then we have a very good player in our squad. Us fans need to give him the benefit of thd doubt, wipe the slate clean and see where he goes from there. Could save us a few quid come the summer that would be better spent in other areas.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely mate..

04 May 2019 15:55:03
I have no quarrels with him being a squad player bluepotato but as a starter? If we are to kick on surely a higher quality of player is needed in the middle of the park?

04 May 2019 17:52:38
Don't change a winning Team. Dropping Schneids against Spurs would be a slap in the face and not good man-management. Different if he had played so so but he has played how we know he can.

04 May 2019 18:14:10
He's done well in the last few games that he's started, BB, so why not? He's got the quality and keeps things ticking over in the midfield and he has a good understanding with Gana (if he stays) so I don't see a problem myself. It's all well and good saying we need a better calibre of player but who? If we miss out on a Euro spot then where is this better player coming from? It will be hard to attract such players without having to throw silly amounts of money at them and I don't think FM and the board are happy to go down this road any longer.
We need to strengthen in other, more pressing areas of the squad as I mentioned earlier so there's no point chucking money at positions we might not need to fill in the coming season.

04 May 2019 20:56:19
Why not try Gomes and Schneids against Spurs, it would be an option if we cash in on Gana, plus we've Davies, and Jimmy Mc for next season, plus any number coming through from 23s. My main concern would be a replacement for Siggy either next season or one after. Also we are crying out for goalscorers either attacking midfielders or a striker.

04 May 2019 21:52:27
Are you mad Blueboy? What is your reasoning to drop Gana for the last game of the season?
