PICTURE: Gibson In Everton Shirt

“It’s a great club with great fans and hopefully I can improve Everton,” he said. “I think I’m a goalscoring midfielder and hopefully I can get a few goals. I’ve scored a few long-range shots — I don’t think I’ve scored one inside the box to be honest — and if I score goals it’s a bonus for me. I’m just looking to do as well as I can for the team.”

    All the best to him, just because he didnt make it at United doesnt mean who wont shine somewhere else, Good club person, loyal to United till the end.

    I’m with Saad and others here wishing Darron a really good career at Everton. He’s potentially a much better player than some people think and it always annoyed me the way some United supporters belittle him and others who don’t quite manage to nail down a regular first team slot. I don’t know who Anonymous is (heh, heh) but his abuse directed at Gibbo was well off beam, as King Eric rightly points out. And while I can see why Milne and Birtles are players who leap to mind as well-known failures, I could think of many, many more who were far worse than both of them as well as Darron Gibson over the last half century. I wish Gibbo the very best of luck and I hope he not only does well at Everton (except against United of course) but also forces his way into the Ireland midfield, as seemed likely at the beginning of his international career.

    Anyway, think of all those 30-yarders that may help knock points off City, Liverpool, Chelsea and any other rivals we need to see fail.

    Thank God for the deal going through
    Good riddance

    Best picture I’ve ever seen of Gibson — out of a United shirt.

    Who are we going to blame now?? — the cunts we should be blaming all along — the fucking ginger Gimps.

    Goodlucky Gibbo. You are great player and I know you will be greater there.

  6. KingOfStretfordEnd says:

    Hope he becomes a solid player for Everton! All the best Gibbo, will always remember those great long-range shots.

    I wish it was 2.5 Million + Rodwell that Everton paid

    “I thought Gibson played well,” said Moyes after the 1-1 draw at Villa Park. “I thought he passed the ball well. Hopefully he’ll help us and give us something we’ve lacked a little bit. He gave us a bit of composure at times and passed it nicely. He’ll benefit from some regular games; you can see he just ran out of steam midway through the second half.”

    Moyes added: “The boys that have come from Manchester United tend to do quite well for us. Anyone who saw the game would think he did a decent job for us. I think nine or 10 Premier League clubs would like to have signed Darron Gibson.”

  9. DohaRed says:

    I always liked Darron, and hoped he would make it as a regular for United. Cracking shot and some cracking defence-splitting passes.I hope he does well at Everton.

    Its also nice to see about 99% of fans on this thread wishing Darron the best. Just a pity we all have to put up with plastics like Anonymous, Red man and bruce thomas. Why don’t you three do one as well.

    Trying something!
