    I beg to differ.It does matter because if true,then that clause permits the trigger.

    He was signed on a free,but,was there a signing on fee involved,do we know?

    We won't sell without a replacement on board.IMO.Mind you that's from a guy who thinks we will win 3-2 today <party> and bet it <whistle>

    Yes agree with this whatever fee is likely to be received for Gomis should be used for a replacement ASAP during the transfer window Huw, and not after...............<ok>

    Well, say we sell him for 8M add our own 8M, and find someone who'll have the remaining games of this season to blend into the team. Then hit the new season running.
    We can't let him be our main striker if his head is elsewhere

    He says that it was planned for him to play more games when Bony was here. But it could be argues that when he did play, it was planned that he wouldn't miss so many chances!! I am a fan of Gomis but he doesn't fill me with confidence in terms of goal-scoring ability. And to turn around now, when Bony has gone, and complain just doesn;t make sense, he should be doing his talking on the pitch and proving Monk wrong by banging in some more goals.

    Indefensible quotes. I like Gomis as a player and think he'd bang the goals in for us once the team got used to him - he's certainly a more mobile, skillful asset in comparison to Bony's brute strength - easily losing two Chelsea markers with a drop of the shoulder yesterday on more than one occasion - but if he doesn't want to be here and if he's going to do his talking in public on the TV, then eff off.

    I agree with Mr Kidderz. I had high hopes that Gomis would come good but sod off if you don't want to be here. My only hope is that this doesn't happen last minute with no time to replace him.

    Looks like we're all in agreement. He's clearly deluded if he thinks he warranted starting ahead of Bony <laugh>

    We can't afford a want away player leading the line, I'd bench him after all this and give it to Emnes, who has far more ability in my view, and send him packing ASAP................<ok>

    If he doesn't want to be here then we don't want him! He can join the long list of 'grass is greener' players that subsequently found out that it wasn't! ;)

    On another thread an extract from Monk's book was posted - given Gomis' comments which at first look disrespectful - I thought I'd copy our managers' comments about Paulo Sousa:-
    “Looking back now,” says Garry, “I'm glad we didn't get into the play-offs with Paulo, as he did not deserve to be the one to take us to the Premiership. He had not earned that right... In terms of the progression Swansea City had made under Kenny Jackett and then Roberto, I saw Paulo's time in charge as a wasted season. Yes, we finished seventh, which was one place higher than the previous season, but I put that achievement down to the attitude of the players rather than anything Paulo Sousa gave us.”

    Having written that can does he deserve the respect of players in his squad?
    While I'm not taken with Gomis, and would be happy to sell him if an alternative can be found before the end of January, there may be more than a grain of truth in what he is saying.

    I think the problem clearly lies with SCFC. If he was told he would get game time that eh didn't get he must feel like he was lied to. How would anyone feel under those circumstances. You'd feel cheated and unwanted. Let that go on for a few months and your heart just isn't in it. Yes, he could now try to show Monk that he was wrong, but I guess he's rather show Monk by scoring lots of goals at his next team.

    If someone is treated like this and stays, it just makes them seem like a doormat. Even if Gomis stays he probably know that Monk has someone else lined up for the summer. Looks to me like Gomis is the back-up guy and he doesn't want to be. Under these circumstances most people would leave, and I certainly would. Terrible way to treat a play and shows what damage can be done.

    This is down to Monk. Much as I like the guy, he's mishandled this situation badly. Gomis has been treated badly enough that he wants to leave. I don't know why so many are blaming Gomis here. He came in good faith and I'm sure he would have fitted in well if given more game time.

    I suspect we'll sell him and wait until the summer to get a replacement.

    No wonder we played so badly on Saturday. Morale must be really low with Bony gone and Gomis wanting to leave. I thought one of Monk's strong points was getting and keeping a good team spirit. His teat is to turn this situation around. Hopefully he will.

    Plastic ... perhaps you know the answer to this. Why were we, apparently, so hell bent on getting rid of Bony last summer. With the nature of his comments in the media HJ all but hung a for sale sign around his neck ... wink wink. What was the driver for that.

    Yes, it did seem that way. I guess Huw just wanted to cash in or maybe another reason. But for Gomis, he gets told something that doesn't happen, so I don't see how he can be blamed for wanting to leave. Bony has left, so Gomis will probably get more game time if he stays, but the trust is now gone. Once trust is gone, nothing much matters. I wouldn't stay and work somewhere if I didn't trust the manager. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

    I just don't hang out with people I don't trust. Trust in important to me and to many others. I just don't want people like that in my life. Life's too short. Plenty of good people out there, so best to steer well clear of the untrustworthy. And I think that is what Gomis are doing. Some on here claim it's sulking, but it's not. I don't sulk over the untrustworthy. I just get rid of them from my life and move on. It's that simple. That simple for Gomis as well. Bad man management from Monk.

    All that being said plastic, what could have Monk done differently? Gomis must have seen how well Bony was performing and knew as it was Monk's first job in management he couldn't afford to drop our star player and risk dropping points, it would have been seen the fans & media as pure madness.

    Hell, he got a bunch of flak for benching Bony against QPR by which time Bony was nearly on the plane to Africa anyway.

    I blame whoever told Gomis he would be "guaranteed" games - did we learn nothing from the Ki fiasco?!

    Maybe Monk could have handled Gomis better on a personal level, but we don't know what was happening behind the scenes, perhaps he did his best to placate him in a difficult situation?

    This is a matter of poor timing for Gomis, if we'd signed him now all would have been well, but for me, if he can't see that Bony deserved to play ahead of him and we as a team were unable to adjust so radically to play 4-4-2 during the last 4 months and has subsequently thrown his toys out, he can go.

    It has only been 4 months after all.

    I suppose the answer to that is not to promise what you can't deliver. I suppose it all depends exactly what was said. Maybe it was said because they assumed Bony was leaving but then didn't leave. So it should have been made clear. It seems obvious that Bony would be first choice even before Gomis arrived. So I don't understand why Gomis was promised game time that he didn't get. Something's not right, but as you say, we don't know what's going on behind the scenes.
