I genuinely haven’t ever wanted another player to succeed at EFC as much as I want JPG to - what a horrible run he’s had but fingers crossed for some luck at last!

I'm trying to pretend it's not happening so that if he breaks again it doesn't get to me :lol:.

Anyone else heard anything about him having picked up a knee injury? 👀

Took part yesterday - looks like the rumour came from someone reading it from the website which hasn’t been updated. Fingers crossed anyway because he looks like he could be such an asset (fitness permitting).

Thank god for that! I'd have been devastated for him.

He has a really powerful aura about him. Dunno how else to put it, but if he can stay fit we have a monster in midfield ready to prove a lot of people wrong. 

Needs to cut out losing the ball, but other than that he was impressive.

I only saw snippets of the game but he looked to really drive us forward and spread the ball. Played forward often as well. Good signs from him.

That's rust mate. 2 years of not playing shining through 

Maybe. I got that against Palace when he first came back. But he’s had a few games now, I know he’s had a lot of time off, just when it’s the basics like that it worries me. To be fair though, Doucoure does that all of the time and so does Allan.

Everyone has off games. He's had 2 years out and no real game time experience with his teammates. He won't be on the same wavelength yet. I will give him a season before I pass any judgements.

I get where you’re coming from Matt. Happy to give him time, hope the lad gets his career back on track even if it’s not with Everton. Had a nightmare! Hopefully he is good enough though.

He is a big, powerful lad so if he can show that he has the quality to go with it then we have a player on our hands. 

I haven't seen it yet but he still won't even be used to English football yet, so there is a long way to go for him.

He will need to adjust to the tempo but I think he will relish the physicality of it.

He’s just been done for drink driving. 25k fine and 14 month ban. Idiot. Reported in ‘that’ paper. Article says he earns 100k a month for those that are interested…

A quick Google and not a single other media outlet or blogspot 'reporting' it though

Supposedly, he’s driven the morning after and still over the limit - it’s still not acceptable but hands up, I’ve done it in the past and bet many on here have too. Naive.

Easily done but not recognised by many; if you have, as an example, six pints of "premium" lager (Stella/Kronenberg etc) of an evening that's more than fifteen units of alcohol. Body processes it at around one unit per hour, many people get in their cars in the morning over the limit but oblivious to the fact, friend of mine was a "morning after" offender.

What a liability this man is to our squad. Yes he's been unlucky but we can't afford to have players like him at the club anymore with the amount of dross that we have. No excuse, shouldn't have been behind the wheel morning after or not.

My lad has not long turned 18, passed his driving test - so getting plenty of nights outs and but also likes getting out and about in the day in this new wheels - I made him buy a £100 electronic breathalyser from Halfords - he can test himself as many times as he likes the morning after until he knows he is safe and under the limit. Its not rocket science or prohibitively expensive to get a decent electronic breathalyser so no real excuse these days. I bet Gbamin's and every other footballers house is full of ever other electronic gizmo you can think off.

I would also question why he is getting so hammered when he should be in training.

@matt whilst I wouldn't call this a reputable source given the name of the paper, I think it is pretty concrete. I suppose it could be another "Mr Gbamin" they are talking about :D

My point was more don't jump the gun based on what that rag prints. It made him out to have been on a bender, turns out its the morning after and he's hungover. 

Still stupid of him but not the dickhead arrogant move some assumed.

Drink driving is so dangerous, but driving the morning after is not widly enough known, it should be.

Cant write him off for a mistake like that, ignorence is no defence but he deserves a chance.

Also the injuries are not his fault, again must be given time to recover his form and match fitness.

Just out of interest LB, what would happen if I was ever stopped on suspicion of drink driving (I never do, might have a single pint and drive but no more)? It's impossible for me to blow so couldn't be breathalysed, presumably I'd be taken in and given a blood test but that's going to be a lot of faffing around.

It's the faffing option which is police station and blood test. Probably take a while.......

But then (again talking hypothetically, I've no plan to test the system😂), if I was marginally over the limit when stopped I could be under once the blood's taken if there's a delay; or is there a way of calculating where I was at when stopped?

Remind me of your boozers name Mike and what night you go drinking 🤣

Alcohol dissipates in the system so there is a chance it would be under if it was marginal. Having said that the experience of being arrested booked in at a police station and having to give blood is not nice so best avoid even if it ens up being negative. If you drink don't drive is my advice.

Been there when I was pulled up for a blowing exhaust and turned out someone in Norwich had stolen my identity, told the story on here before but three units descended on me and I was taken off in the back of a van. Was told if I wanted a lawyer I'd have to go to Exeter but said I had no need of one so was taken to a local station where the booking sergeant asked to see my tattoos, said I had none and took my shirt off to prove it; they realised the truth of the situation and gave me a lift home. Happened outside our house of the time at the end of a cul-de-sac so no doubt the neighbours saw what happened, I never told them the truth but nobody messed with me after that😂.

Good job your identity thief had tattoos!!!

Supposedly. But if he sneezes he'll probably pop an ear drum and be out.

If he is fit he makes the bench due the number of other injuries. He obviously isn't going to be match fit and Man U away is unlikely to provide the opportunity to give him 10-15 minutes at the end. So, barring further injuries or some total on pitch catastrophe, I can't see him getting any game time at all today.

I really shouldn’t say this but fuck it, I really laughed at “it’s impossible for me to blow”. Sorry Mike 😂

who knows If we can Get him fully fit again. When he was first signed there was a lot of talk that he could also play cb.

Could he actually save us a fortune and turn into another Jags?

FIFY

It pains me to say I just can’t see him ever being fit for long enough to find out.
