    The idea that Samper could have done what Gomes has done doesnt make sense. In place of Gomes or Samper should have been someone good enough.

    I disagree and dont think Palencia is good enough but all for him being given chance and taking it if impresses Valverde. Anyone can see his work rate and everyone at club this season will have seen it.
    He looked good enough for the type of role Munir/Sandro held in previous seasons. Especially with the midfield we have. Gomes coming does make a difference, we spent 35m on a player arguably worse than the one we let go. If we keep Samper and don't grab Gomes we could have both Samper and a player better than both of them.

    Whether Palencia is good enough isn't the question, the question is if he can be. If we're willing to play Gomes at RB there's really no reason why we shouldn't be able to give Palencia a try.

    No he didnt and Paco/Sandro by and large were slated as not being good enough and folk moaned about the squad depth.

    Gomes coming makes no difference whatsoever to Samper being good enough it is a lame argument and all it says is that neither were good enough and should have bought better if anything.

    There is no chance whatsoever Gomes is worse than Samper and him looking terrified to perform at Barca is not always something that can be foreseen.

    Samper has shown himself to be ready to push through to a first team spot. The games he played he looked poor defensively and scared.

    The question is whether Palencia is good enough to be given first team chances and he has to prove it this summer if given a chance.
