Interesting that he's seen as a 6 rather than a 10. Good. There's loads of 10s but there aren't any young Scholes like 6s that can dictate a game. I mean he's fucking special. Howson's assessment is bang on. He doesn't sprint because he doesn't have to, he dictates with movement, position, unflappable technique. He's on Barca's radar for a reason.
Like I said last season Gomes has to make that transition to he first team otherwise we'll lose him. Jose has signed a lot of talent, but he's let the odd one go as well, and one of em's arguably the best player in the Prem at the min in De Bruyne. So we'll see. He'll be 18 at the start of next season so he'll want to be at least training with the first team. This is the last season we can ignore him. Jose needs to factor him in to next seasons plans now. Don't wait.
