No place like home for Gomes!

As it appear clear that unless there is a major goal-keeping crisis, Heurelho Gomes has already played his last game for Tottenham..

though many people believe he should be the natural back up for Hugo Lloris, Brad Friedel retains the role and may well start tonight, to give the Frenchman a few more days to recover from his knockout blow against Everton, whilst also keeping the American happy and match sharp, just in case he is needed in the near future.

Clearly Gomes isn't wanter or perhaps rated by AVB and you assume he has been available for a transfer or loan for at least 12 months, and it is just a case of finding a suitable destination that can meet the expectations of the player and of course Daniel Levy to allow Heurelho to find a new home. For the first time, it appears likely that his future could well be back in Brazil and perhaps with the World Cup on the horizon, could that be an extra incentive?

With his contract due to expire next summer, you would like to think that Spurs and the player would cut their losses and allow for a January move and Gomes is now seriously considering a return to Brazil, which may also reignite his international dreams, especially if QPR's Júlio César still isn't getting games.

Speaking to Portal da Band, Gomes said: 'I am much more open now than before as I have been in Europe for almost 10 years and I miss Brazil, my mother, brothers and friends.
'Although I am well adapted and used to being abroad, I don't think I'll stay here forever.

'What matters right now is to keep playing, because I know I still have the potential and technical conditions to do so. I need money to pay my bills!

'My career has always been well organised and planned, so I have to think this through to make sure I don't do the wrong thing or make a hasty decision which could harm my future.'

Though I do worry that the totally differing keeping styles between Lloris and Friedel are to the detriment of Spurs play, I also feel that the often 'will he / won't he' geeing of Gomes if actually a different problem for our defenders, who at least know when the go into a game with Hugo or Brad what to expect, with Gomes, it is a game of uncertainty and that is the reason why he is out of the picture at spurs under AVB and though Friedel isn't eh answer, neither is Gomes...
