The problem, I see, is if Sunderland continue to lose and there are lineup changes. He's usually the first to get subbed off so that doesn't bode well if the manager looks to try to find better combinations. He needs to start showing something other than good positional play and hustling.

Exactly, what I have been saying. If he starts to bang in a few goals then he is no longer the first guy subbed off and he becomes a 90 minute guy. Right now, he needs to find his inner Pulisic.

He's 20 so I'm ok with him starting and going 60 versus the alternative. He's still learning. I'm just happy he's starting every game for them and showing better than most of their other players.

He's got skills that Bedoya doesn't have, or doesn't express enough.. unfortunately for Bedoya.

I'm ESTATIC by Gooch, is he the new Dempsey, someone that really wasn't on the radar until he became a professional?


Gooch was maybe a little slower in his development than some of his age bracket piers (Rubin, Hyndman, Zelalem, Canouse, Tall, Green, etc...). Not sure if it put a chip on his shoulder, but when he was left off the U-20 WC squad he buckled down and began rising through Sunderland's youth teams fairly quickly.
He's still a young prospect (20), so their are bound to be ups & downs, but he seems to have a fighters' spirit. If given a chance and people are patient with him I think he'll do well for club & country.

Gooch made the 18 today (didn't play) in Sunderland's loss vs Bournemouth. Maybe now since they're already relegated he'll see some time in the remaining 4 PL matches if they play their younger players who will be returning.

Hope he does. I dont think his early minutes with Sunderland were a fluke. Hes a good prospect. Hope he can get some games before the season ends.

I think the Championship will be good for him. Or he could get transferred.
