chelsea fan here

sad to see him go, he could have played in any of the other top 2 clubs (arsenal and man utd)

never uttered a word once about being left out.

thanks carlo for some great years, hope you have a good time at spurs but not too good a time lol

Good signing for both Gomes and Alnwick. And good cover for Gomes when injured (and let's face it, gomes doesn't hide from danger or difficult balls if he needs to clear it, so will get more than his fair share of knocks).

When all are fit and well, Gomes is still going to be number one, and deservedly so. Anyone who says otherwise is just watching MoTD highligths from 3 months ago.

He's gone to spurs now as he's more chance of winning a trophy there this season than staying put and winning naff all at Chelsea!!!!
When he missed that carling cup victory through suspension you would have thought one of the players would have given him their medal!!!

U cant be serious?? :L :L Holy shht u are sum laugh... U hav more chance of winning the Championship nxt year ;) All the best Carlo but of course ure stuck with sum "Ambitious" fans to say the least when spurs are actually only a few points of relegation!!

I think its a PERFECT signing this would give us couple of clean sheets:) it would also increase compoition as Gomes would have to perfrom to get into the 11

Too good to have been sitting on the bench for years, always rated him. Didnt even need Cech when Chelsea bought him, always wondered why they done that when Cudicini was one of the best in the league

You have a great keeper on your HANDS now. I will miss him as he was a great guy and very loyal.

Good luck in your relegation battle hissingnightmare.

fact...spurs are in a cup final again....and it will be against a weak second string utd team....chelsea are struggling to score goals even after 20 shots on target per game and looking very dodgy at the back esp on set peices
Like i said spurs have more chance than chelsea of winning anything this season...beven if they do go down ...which i doubt it as they have harry houdini in charge....
oh and i dont support spurs!!!

haha, even if it is a second strign utd team (which i doubt), they will still outplay spurs.

erm, chelsea in next round in FA cup, CL and 2nd in PL (although i think UTD will win that)

how many other comps are spurs in?

Carlo is a class act and fine competitor. Congrats to him and the Spurs. I have been a huge fan of his for many years. With Cech's 'normal' performances as of late I wonder why he never got a few 'starts' for the Blues. This is a better option for him. He probably should have left a few years ago. I think he still has one great season left in him. Ciao Carlo.
