Gosling

Recommended Posts

Only gutted we never got a fee for him. He is not quick enough to play at the top end of the prem and it seems other clubs/supporters have a higher opinion of him than us. Probably due to his important goals. Heard a rumour he wants to go back down south. On a side note If he is injured, he can't pass a medical so where does he do his rehab? Maybe he will re-sign. But i can see him at West Ham where he probably belongs

Appears he suggested he was going to sign and then intentionally stalled to get this to happen. Devious.

 

If that's the case then he's not going to be the most popular lad when he comes back with his new team <_< .

ok, at the risk of sounding stupid:

 

"Gosling joined Everton from Plymouth in January, 2008 on an £8,000-a-week, three-year deal."

 

which would mean Jan 2011?

 

or is the article wrong?

Surely this cant all be true???

 

Firstly it would be a real dropped bollack by Everton (probably the truest part!)

 

Secondly surely Gosling wouldnt think he would be better off joining another team? If he really is looking to his future IMO he would be better off asking to go on loan to get more experience (when he is fit!) and then coming back to a club that has already given him a chance that he wouldnt have had at others. He wont ever go to a bigger club than Everton as truth be told he isnt the most blessed player, but he does put in a shift and he does have very good movement.

 

Thirdly he cant honestly think he should be given a centre midfield spot ahead of some of the real quality players we have there? He would have been better suited trying to get a more central slot in cup games etc and then (hopefully) impress, rather than demand a 1st team Cm spot.

 

If this all really is true, which it does seem, then its pretty pathetic on both sides! Having said that I wish him luck in whatever he does I will always remember him for that cup goal against Liverpool!

Maybe he thinks he knee is knackered so hes taking a payday whilst he can....

It's even more gutting that we've been paying for his bloody rehab, we should demand money from the little shit. Although, maybe the club at least owed him that after making him play on against Wolves with a fucked knee. Come to think of it, maybe that's played a role in what he's doing?

I thought he was signalling he wanted to play on?

Do all contracts run August to August irrespective of when they're signed? Bit like all race horses are officially born on 1st Jan.

 

Incidentally been trawling the FA regulations to find the loophole he's using but I can't.

 

http://www.thefa.com/TheFA/RulesandRegulations/~/media/Files/PDF/TheFA/Rules_Regs/Rules_of_the_association_pg91-127.ashx/Rules_of_the_association_pg91-127.pdf

 

There's a bit at C. (j) iii but that's referring to players over twenty-four I think.

 

(ii) There shall be no right to a compensation or transfer fee by the previous Club of

a Player who has attained the age of 24 years on or before 30th June and whose

contract with that Club has expired. If a Club wishes to offer re-engagement to a

Player or exercise an option contained in the agreement the following practice

shall prevail.

(iii) Within 7 days of the first Saturday in May, or the date of the last competitive

Match of the Club’s first team, whichever is the later, the Club must give notice in

writing to the Player indicating that either the Club offers a re-engagement or, if

appropriate, exercises any option contained in the agreement.

 

Maybe it isn't just about players over twenty-four, if not then I think it's a bit ambiguous and grounds for appeal.

Well we are appealing the decision apparently.

Should bloody well hope so! costing us an arm and a duff-leg. If we appeal does that mean he cannot sign to another club? Because if we were successful in our appeal we would be entitled to compensation and any new club that would sign him on would be liable for that, right?

Yeah, I imagine he'd agree terms with a new club but wouldn't be able to sign for them until the appeal was heard.

here's hoping we can stretch the appeal out then!

Indeed, Evertonfc.com confirm that he signed 14.01.2008 so there is definately more to this story. Even if a player signs in august, their contracts always run out at the end of june so we need some clarification regarding contracts....

If he does leave then I shall boo him if he plays us. Iv never booed a fomrer blue because Iv never agreed with it but when a player does that to a club thats looked after him I think it is a disgrace!

I'm not sure what kind of first team ball he thinks he's going to get after coming strait out of injury elsewhere. The major difference between many managers and DM is that DM tends to be cautious when bringing players back into the fold from injury. Gosling may be in for a real wake up call when he plays too early at his next club and damages himself worse in the long run. Oh well he's a big lad and can make his own decisions right???

I agreed no great loss as he was pretty useless but what a wanker no matter what the reason for wanting to move if he could have gone about this alot better. if he wanted to leave he should have said months ago lets hope his injury doesn't heal anytime soon!!! seems a strange descision to make as he is injured.

I work in Manchester and have had loads of lads come up to me saying "are you gutted?" etc because they all think he is on a par with Rodwell. When i've told them i'm not really that bothered they think i'm a bitter cunt! Truth is that the perception of Gosling outside our club is far different to his true value. Like one other poster stated just like Jeffers.

That's a good article on the reality of the situation, He must hold himself in very high regard or he is thick as pigsh!t possibly both but either way he's surely making a huge mistake career wise.

 

As said other then financial he's no loss I've never been a fan and always thought he looked like a championship player at best to be blunt the lad's pretty sh!t, Cheers for the goal against the shite have fun in football obscurity.

O'Keeffe is in Oz with the team I think so you have to think that's pretty close to the official line.

 

Gosling must be feeling a right twat....windfall on the way maybe but that's not much compensation for universal derision.

he burned every bridge he had at this club and i wouldn't be surprised if he comes out and admits how huge of a mistake he's made come january or so, when he'll already in a relegation battle with a club like newcastle or west ham. not to mention, he won't be playing in the center of midfield, like he believes he so rightfully deserves. who does this kid think he is? i hope that the money he gets from his signing fee and wages at his new club keeps him happy when he realizes the biggest mistake of his career was leaving everton the way he did.

Have said before that I cant blame the lad for wanting first team football.

I don't think even Blackpool would guarantee him premier league first team football. I don't think any club can ever sensibly guarantee anyone first team football.

 

Girly wimp.

I'm probably the only one here completely indifferent to the whole thing, originally i was pissed because we could have lost up to 4mil, but really what have we lost? An average player at best, was never going to set the world alight, and nowhere near in the class level of rodwell.

 

Yes it's annoying, yes he's a dick, but end of the day, we should be looking to someone like donovan on the right, with osman as back up, instead of osman with gosling as back up. Maybe this will provoke Moyes into a more aggressive stance with positions that are weak in depth, like left back and right midfield? Only time will tell. I'm sour over the manner with which Gosling has left but I'm not vindictive, I hope getting relegated will be a positive experience for him, and who knows, Cardiff may end up getting him and he could score a cup wonder goal all over again for them, in which case in my eyes at least he'll be absolved his previous transgressions.

 

For now, I really couldn't care less. Plymouth have lost out on a little bit of cash; don't care. Everton have lost out on a little bit of cash; don't care. You've got to think, if we don't get any more players by January we could easily loan Donovan again or go in for another player, and that's around the time gosling would have been fit, and he may not be anywhere near the mid-table standard he reached with us beforehand. Yes he could have been a good player had he stuck with us, yes he still might, but once again, no, no i do not care. Not one bit.

Guess who said this on 27th May....

 

"I have another season to go on my contract and have been offered an extension, everything seems fine with it and there's plenty of time on my side. It's just a question of when I do sign it but I'm more than happy to see things through."

 

"This is a top-five club in the Premier League and there's no other club I'd rather be at."

 

"This is a great place for kids, It's harder at the top four clubs, with all their money, because they tend to just go out and buy the top foreign players, here the gaffer gives you a chance and I'm very grateful for that."

 

"With the squad size and money here, he has to look at youth and the lads who've come through here have done him proud."

 

"That was certainly a major factor in coming here because I knew I would get a chance - and I have."

anyone heard anything on the appeal?

Everton have officially still said nothing and he's still listed on the OS <_< .

 

Think we must give it a go, natural justice is on our side.....and possibly even the law.

 

"In order for a verbal agreement to be legally binding the agreement must have reached completeness. This means that all terms and conditions have been reached and agreed regarding services and terms of pay. Agreements will be incomplete when there are still further terms and conditions to be agreed. Agreements in principle will not usually be upheld in court and will not usually be considered complete verbal agreements."

 

Does...

 

"....I have been offered an extension, everything seems fine with it and there's plenty of time on my side. It's just a question of when I do sign it but I'm more than happy to see things through."

 

....suggest that the deal was completed verbally?

 

Holystove's opinion would be useful :) .
