I get your stance, I defy anyone to say they weren't baffled by the appointment.....however he seems to bring way more positivity than Clement did and if he does pull off the great escape then clearly sacking the last two was the right decision. Clement could never have achieved keeping us up.
Clement had actually managed to get us in a reasonable shape prior to his sacking. Considering players available for selection. Gomes team looks little different to what Clements formation had evolved into. Seemingly immediately relegating Aluko and Kelly from the starting 11.
Thought Saturdays subs were interesting. Would have expected more defensive ones to secure the points.
Formation may be similar but the way of playing is different and much more positive than we were playing under Clement. Not saying PC wouldn't have evolved to be more positive but Gomes has made that change immediately.
I think one thing worth noting is a couple of players coming out and saying they are enjoying themselves more now - whether that is due to Gomes' training techniques or any "bad apples" being removed from the sqaud remains to be seen but the players, to date certainly seem to have bought into Gomes more than any other manager in recent times (perhaps with the exception of Stam in his first season).
