Seamus Coleman

Recommended Posts

EVERTON have come out with a strong defence of Ireland full back Seamus Coleman after the Donegal player was subjected to anti-Irish abuse online by a small section of the club's support.

Anyone at the match hear this? suprised at this given Everton strong tradition with both Irish players and Irish fans.

I read about it, thought it was stupid and disgusting.

 

Didn't think our fans were like that personally, thought they had a bit more taste than that. Don't like to be associated with bellends like that,

 

Coleman was stupid with 'that' challenge, but i've seen every single one of our current crop make a stinker, Coleman making one doesn't warrant that level of abuse.

Whilst the references to his nationality are uncalled for, a couple of them, ie the tweet about Tony Hibbert doing a better job are perfectly acceptable, no difference from us on this site saying gibbo does a better job than Neville etc. People are entitled to their opinions about how they feel a player is playing. Just not need for crass remarks about nationality, or wishing they were dead, that is uncalled for

can't be doing with such insults associated with nationality etc.

 

Thick yes - there is no doubt in my mind he ain't the sharpest tool in the box, it's a close call between him and Agbonlahor as to who has the face which says "I've got no idea what day it is". In fact either of them could stand in for Bill Murrays character in a remake of Caddyshack.

 

I think he's missed out on a lot of fundamental youth development to become a top defender - pity really as he has tremendous athletic attributes.

They're not all Everton supporters shaking%20fist.png

 

Got to love that

 

"HA HA HA Coleman is the durtiest pikey gypo I have ever seen. 'Dis is my dawg'"

 

Could someone please translate what the fuck that even meant ?

 

Ok, Coleman may come in for a bit of berating, but bringing his country of origin into it, was really all rather unneccesary. I don't think it's any real Irish distaste, just a number of Idiots having a say. If Coleman was Welsh, or Canadian or from Guatemala, something invariably may have been mentioned.

 

Plenty load of sorry assed people on those social network things with room temperature IQ's.

I had my doubts about him (as a winger and full back) but in the last few games he has proved me wrong and he has impressed me. Like Ten says, there are still plenty of areas to work on but he does have a future at the club if he can keep that form up.

Seamus is my favourite player. It's a bit of a fairy tale story for me. I hope he becomes world class, he is learning every year and improving all the time.

He's at worst a rotation option long-term. I like Pienaar but having Coleman on the overlaps has been crucial. He just needs to tighten up defensively. Twenty four is still pretty young for a defender so he still has a good 2-3 years to improve. Look how much Baines has blown up in the last few years.

Yeah I think Coleman's value to this team is becoming more and more apparent. I love Jags but he's pretty helpless with the ball at his feet in the offensive half of the field and he doesn't have great wheels. He certainly belongs in the center. Coleman's far from Philipp Lahm but he's a perfectly competent EPL fullback. I don't think we can justify taking him out even when Hibbo is healthy, no?

I agree. He's development has been phenomenal this season. I can see him being one of the better right backs in the league in the next few years.

I cant beleive there are people on twitter complaining about this news

People want to know about DM contract not Coleman's, but it's important we keep hold of players, can't see why people would moan about it, just maybe not no1 priority.

That's great news.

 

People forget we plucked this lad out of the League of Ireland for less than some players weekly wage, and then set about playing him out of position on the wing. He's done himself proud for the most part, and at 24, is not even in his prime yet as a man, let alone a defender, so he has loads of time to get it right.

 

One of our best acquisitions under Moyes.

If I remember correctly, they sell for around $150 in local stores around here. Indeed, there's been something of a ruckus about them, because they can include a camera and some people having been using them to peek through neighbours' windows. They are rather neat, though. When hovering, they can stay absolutely still in one place.

Unquestionablly. Massive praise to the scout who saw the potential in this boy. The idiots who abused him after his mistake last year at QPR are looking silly now. Brilliant for Blackpool in his loan spell there and grasped his chance with both hands in Hibbert's absensce. The ideal modern full back. Man of the match at Wembley against England. The lad is a star.

Seamus has come on leaps and bounds since when he first joined,, Full back and at times a damn exciting right winger.

 

A cracking player, very found of him, and as for the abusive comments, these people don't seem like Evertonians to me

 

just a bunch of arseholes.

Its always good to see Seamus interviews. He always comes across as if he is very appreciative of what he has got, I also think it shows in his attitude on the field too.

I hope he gets to play in a major tournament, he deserves it.

Love Coleman.

 

I mirror what GR's said, we have a good bunch of lads on our books and i'm glad that one of our main criteria's for players is attitude/character.

 

Makes the whole dressing room feel great.

 

Unlike teams like Newcastle, full of prima donnas.

It's nothing to do with his accent, it's the fact that he barely opens his mouth when he talks.

 

Don't be so touchy.

What was that? I couldn' hear what you were saying. Open your mouth when you speak

 

Ps I said I wasn't offended. Lighten up eh?
