How about the week Gomes has had? He produced three stunning saves to deny Arsenal, then turned in another strong, if less spectacular, showing as Spurs knocked off Chelsea and climbed above Manchester City in the race for fourth place.
More than a year ago on this blog, I chronicled the bad press the Brazilian keeper was garnering, and then happily noted how he began to rehabilitate his reputation in the later stages of the season.
He is now firmly established as one of the better goalkeepers in the league, and Spurs are no longer regularly linked with every out-of-contract keeper around the world. It's always good to see an under-fire keeper come good, no matter who you support. It's just a shame for Gomes that his fantastic form is unlikely to be rewarded at the World Cup, where the brilliant Julio Cesar is sure to retain his place for Brazil.
