Oh South London


  • When Gomez was on his way up at Charlton, in February 2014, his team played a famous FA Youth Cup fifth-round game against Arsenal, at Ebbsfleet United’s ground in Kent. Up against the Arsenal of Alex Iwobi, Chuba Akpom and Ainsley Maitland-Niles, a 16-year-old Gomez was almost perfect before Charlton went down to two late goals. Legend has it that south London emptied of school children that day, so many jumped on the train to watch the teenager they wanted to follow.

    Yeh south london was empty that day.
    A bit lazy and a bit exagarated by the journalist. South London has always produced good players as has East London and West London, Manchester, Liverpool and most inner cities.
  • Lazy journalism maybe but the comment at the end about Category 1 academies being able to nick the kids up to Manchester is always a worry. About time the FA recognised the quality of Steve Avery and co and what they have achieved. In other words score them on the end product!
