I may have missed this during the Summer, but who has replaced Mick 'Baz' Rathbone as physio?

Whoever it is seems to be doing a good job thus far as we don't seem to be suffering the injuries this time around (touches wood as he types that!) and I wonder if anybody can explain Mr Rathbone's rather sudden departure?

Slightly more seriously, the Gosling thing addd to the injury business had to be a killer for ~Baz. At some point even the most decent bloke will lose the faith of his employer if he makes a serious of decisions which could be regarded as poor. With Gosling, there was no "could be regarded as poor". It was a fuck up of Biblical proportions.

There is still a team of 3 or 4 physios at Everton.

There was a job advert out recently for a new club doctor. I imagine once the new doctor has been recruited, the whole medical set up at Everton will be restructured and then a new head physio will be brought in.

Give the Gosling thing a rest Mike (3). It's been done to death and I reckon it was a mountain made out of a mole hill. Geez the goose was average at best, and the biggest fuck-up was by Dan himself.

I have it on good authority that Bill is in talks with the cast of Casualty.

Well said Peter. I also think Mike is a bit harsh on the Bible... it sold a shit load of copies, and has one hell of a story line. Its not as good as Da Vinci Code, but far from a 'Dan Gosling' style fuck up.

Just saw 'What the Papers Say' on the OS... more talk of Yak going to West Ham, and Crouch lined up as his replacement! That's got to be wide of the mark by some distance.

The other strange one was talk of Palermo being interested in little Leon. I'm struggling to think of any transfer roumers in related to Osman in his entire career, so wouldn't have a clue how much we'd want, and if we'd sell him.

I know its all paper talk, but I could defo see Moyes selling Yak. Still not sure if its the right thing to do though - haven't seen much of him pre-season. I'd defo replace Yobo though.

Rob - the new nurse in Casualty looks okay to me - she's been in a bit of trouble with authority figures, seen as speaking her mind - but that's no bad thing and she looks ok to me !!!

Talking of medical staff, what about the RS, they've took on more staff since Noah put an advert out looking for a zoo keeper. Anyway let's bring Magnum back.
