Gibson was suspended from driving for 20 months and given 200 hours' community service.

£50 grand a week for nothing!

The ball is now in Everton's court as to whether they have legal grounds to sack him, it's too late now to engineer a transfer. I'm not sure that Gibson could fulfill his training commitments anyway for EFC or another club?

Supporters can be very fickle: one week, Lukaku is a hero; the next, he is a big lump. Same with Naismith. These players are not machines.
I agree that Gibson is an idiot. But he might just learn from all this. And nobody was hurt. Give the lad another chance.

Having experienced AVdM I am more than a bit sceptical of regular sick notes.

It shows a lack of maturity in a player that due to his profession should never be drunk, how can you be at your physical best with alcohol inside you.
I make no excuses or have time for him or those who think it is acceptable. Personally I would tear up his contract and kick the bum out of the club!
