Would have been more of a gamble than Torres i feel. Torres is PL proven and Gomez blows hot and cold. Yes he has been prolific this season but its the first year he has at Bayern.

He is a good player but no where near rumored 36 Million quality striker. This season he is in excellent form much like his Stuttgart days.

In last 4 season(including this) he scored 20 plus goals in 3 seasons, one among the 3 is 30 plus goals and this season he has scored 25 goals in 29 matches. Very poor player must be.

I love how people are judging him on how he played in odd games for Germany. He is a top player and i for one am glad he stayed away from rival teams of mine.

he would have cost similar or probably more than carroll considering the season he is having and the fee they originally payed for him

I don't see any reason why Bayern would've accepted an offer when Gómez is in-form and the only other healthy striker is Klose.

Very good player when on form and he's been showing what the player he is this season. Also he did say that he wouldn't have joined anyway as he's already at a top club.

Not really. Bayern wouldn't have signed him if they had no confidence on him. Bayern are not known for their knee jerk reaction after one season. Everyone knew Gomez always gonna score and you wouldn't have got him for less than 25 Million in the summer.
