"Players like Coleman are often the kind to hang around because they know that experience, consistency and professionalism is still needed at the heart of every dressing room," writes Ian Ladyman.

"Take these players out of a group and it weakens. Premier League squads can be disparate in terms of age and especially nationality. So they need holding together by what the great Liverpool servant Roy Evans used to call 'glue players'. Coleman is Everton's glue player at a time they really need one."

The author of the article makes a valid point. Moyes (with his shoestring budget) understood that of the equally maligned Phil Neville.

To me, no doubt Seamus Coleman is a good motivational player with a bundle of experiences he had gathered from the likes of Tim Howard, Jagielka, Heitinga et al. He needs to carry the young players along with his wealth of experience both off and on the field.

Say what you want about Seamus but if it discounts his commitment or love for the club in any way that face after the goal is the last word on that. He may have been toughing it up a bit to hold some tears of joy back. It was an extremely emotional Everton moment. Glad his goal marks a turnaround.

Dale, agree 100%, that was a fantastic moment for him and the support to witness. Great to hear his chant boom around GP shortly after. Wonderful stuff!

In every team and every environment, sport, business, schools, a real, genuine leader is absolutely priceless. Of all the ex players invited to stick around after playing and god knows we have a few, Seamus would be top of my list all day long, with Tim Cahill a close second.
