Gomez or Trent?

I was having this debate last night with my brother, he prefers Trent at RB but I think Gomez provides better balance defensively and still has enough about his game to contribute in attack aswell.

What are peoples thoughts?

Though I rate both it'd have to be Gomez for me mate.

Am hopeful in time we shall see Trent battle with Clyne at rbk and Gomez one of our 4 cbks with Vvd, Matip, Lovren. Both look very good players and seem very grounded. Long may it continue.

I think Gomez more naturally thinks along the way a defender should, where TAA is more naturally attacking. Both have great potential, though I don't think RB is either of their long term positions. For me I would play Gomez for the reasons you have mentioned Carra, though against teams more expected to park the bus TAA may be better option and still help develop both players.

Either way its good to see both get a chance.

Play both and remove lovren. simple!

I don't see any reason why we can't play both.

TAA has shown enough in the games he has played for us not to be too worried about him and Gomez looks better every game at the moment.

Gomez can't be any worse at CB than Matip or Lovren so I would put him in instead of one of them and give him time to forge a relationship.

I would also have TAA and Clyne fighting for RB. Like someone has said TAA especially when we need quality delivery from out wide to unlock stubborn defences.

At this moment in time its Gomez for me.

18 Oct 2017 17:37:51
Gomez for me.

TAA is not ready at all. Watch him play again and you will see how much he struggles.

18 Oct 2017 18:56:35
May see both of them in the team in the future but maybe neither at RB. Gomez could be our long term CB and TAA may end up further forward. who knows just glad we have them both.

18 Oct 2017 18:57:12
In terms of RB, I would play Gomez vs teams that offer more of an attacking threat as he is a better defender than TAA even tho, he's not too shabby in the final third either with one assist vs Arsenal and a near-assist for Can vs Utd. TAA can play vs teams in games where we will have more of the ball and is very good in front of goal.

I do agree that TAA is Clyne's competition while Gomez should be at CB long term.

18 Oct 2017 19:56:12
To me TAA is only playing RB to have game time. He's a midfielder all day and is where he should be play imo from next season onwards.

18 Oct 2017 21:49:42
I think both players have an extremely bright future at the club. Both impress me more and more with every game. If I had to chose 1 now though Gomez just edges it for me.

18 Oct 2017 21:50:48
Gomez for me, although I see him being a CB like many on here. I think we will see major investment at CB and RB next year as Clyne is not wanted according to the eds and Trent is definatley more suited either a wide or central midfield role. That said I feel comfortable with Trent at RB just feel Gomez is the superior defender.

I’m with Bingo

Gomez is clearly the more accomplished and mature defender while TAA struggles a bit in the air and positionally at times. On the other hand TAA looks a lot more natural when he gets forward, is a better crosser of the ball and has a decent shot on him.

While TAA’s learning the defensive side of the game I’d play Gomez at RB against the most teams, and TAA against the likes of Maribor. In those games Gomez can then be used at CB so he can gradually adapt to that position.

Terence Trent Darby all the way for me, I find Selina Gomez a little too saccharin.
