Gomes: “I Expect Us To Carry On Growing”
A proud Heurelho Gomes insists Watford will only continue to “grow” as a club despite suffering defeat in the FA Cup Final at Wembley.
The Brazilian, who has played in every round of the competition this season, points to the record points tally in the Premier League and the unforgettable run to Saturday’s final as clear proof the Hornets are a club on the up.
Javi Gracia’s side recorded their best ever tally with 50 points in the league and edged Woking, Newcastle, QPR, Crystal Palace and Wolves to reach the last two in the FA Cup.
And that, insists the popular glove-man, is solid foundations on which the club can continue to build.
“We will go again,” said Gomes. “Maybe it will be even harder to get to the final next time but it is possible. We just need to keep going as a club, to keep growing as a club.
“It shows where this club is going. A few years ago, we were in the Championship and nobody expected us to come here. We are still growing. Of course, the result is hard to take but we faced one of the best sides in the world.
“It has been an amazing journey. No one will forget the comeback against Wolves.
“What you can expect from this club is that we will keep going. We are fighters. We will get better. This season has been better than all the others so what I expect is us to carry on growing.
“It was a proud day. Everyone wanted to be in our position but we did it. Of course, at the end the result wasn’t the one that we wanted.
“But I am so proud. I am so proud of what we have done this season.
“And I am so proud of our support. They were amazing until the end, until the final minutes, singing all the way through. That shows we are together.”
