Once again I found myself to be puzzled why someone in that advanced position on the wing when receiving the ball and instead of moving forward into what frequently was open space he passes it back. That happened almost every time he received the ball in that forward position.
OK, I am still a believer in the Stanley Matthews type of play; one that has been emulated by County players such as Cocker and Price; but I do not understand the Gomez style or see any point to it. If he was surrounded by opponents, then I could see a back pass might be the best option but not when you have yards of green grass ahead of you.
