Goalkeeper – Heurelho Gomes

Having 35 year-old Paddy Kenny between the sticks for another season would probably constitute a nightmare scenario for the majority of Leeds United fans.

But ‘better the devil you know’ would be my heeded warning, in this case the devil the Elland Road faithful don’t know being Tottenham’s Heurelho Gomes.

Reports suggested the flap-happy Brazilian was on the Whites’ radar before they snapped up Jack Butland on loan, and Brian McDermott could revisit the Spurs reserve at the end of the season.

That’s literally a nightmare waiting to happen – the 33 year-old is potentially the most comedic goalkeeper in Premier League history, and has hardly featured for the Lilywhites since 2011.

Furthermore, Gomes’ biggest failing points, namely the inability to command his area and handle the English aerial game, will surely be readily exposed in the lofted-cross-haven of the Championship.
