The Other Gooch

A dutiful poster has kindly uploaded an individual reel from Lynden Gooch's Sunderland debut. And is case you are wondering who the hell he is, I dropped this little primer at MLSS over the weekend.

Solid start against a top team.

Be interesting to see if he can hold off Januzaj et al to get reliable minutes but certainly a nice start.

Kind of crazy that Gooch has a better chance of getting reliable minutes than Pulisic this year (unless CP10 moves on).

looked pretty sub-par to me but for his first start not totally a miss, had some decent moments. i would not expect him to get many league minutes this year, maybe if there are some injuries.

Dany,

Watch the other Sunderland players, particularly Watmore, or check the individual stats for the game. He didn't have a great game, but Sunderland as a team really struggled offensively.

agreed, but i maintain that he looked sub-par, and i anticipate khazri and januzaj to beat out gooch and watmore.

i don't think he looked subpar at all... but you are right he is going to be 5th in line or so. can't imagine they are going to have the new big signing on the bench nor the young england stand out, etc.
