Just thought I would point out what a great season Dan Gosling is having. He has managed 1 minute of football in which his new team conceded.
It bugged me how he left, though we have managed to benefit from not paying his medical bills this season, but I'm sure the saving won't cover the possible transfer fee we should have received.
He was making progress at Everton who have a small squad and so provide opportunities of playing time and he quits for what can only be the pound sign.
Seamus Coleman has shown what can happen when given the opportunity, due to his dedication and professionalism he has become a 1st team regular and a fans favourite, a mantle Dan had gained after scoring against Liverpool...
What was he thinking?

Did the club have the opportunity to sign him earlier than to let it get to this point? I would say yes.
When an Evertonian builds a time machine can they go back and get this sorted by getting a contract written up earlier and while they're at it, can they steal the pen and contract that was used to re sign Anichebe.

A blessing in disguise if you ask me, and maybe Moyes wanted rid anyway.

For that alone he was worth a squad place.
The club ballsed his contract up but equally surely there is a moral issue that a club that pay you very handsomely want you to stay that you don't pull the 'small print' trick. Surely there should be some sort of professional pride/loyalty.
Despite all of that, it is nice to see that he isn't doing well at the barcodes!!

The club screwed up but Dan could have easily signed a new contract the next day....but what did he do? went to court and got himself a great signing on deal.

Gosling can be a good player. Coleman is already a good player and can be a great player.

Gosling? Eye for goal, potentially one of those impact players after his goals against Liverpool and Man Utd, but he's gone and we move on.

Gosling never looked like a winger, I think Moyes played him there to get him used to the Prem.
I think he could be a decent tidy centre midfield. A bit of an Osman in the middle so would be a squad player.
But to compare him to someone? Errrr.... Steve Sidwell?
