We have had loads of England captains recently... Scumacher, Brown, Clarke - not one made the grade. Clarke played a few games but was moved on to Blackpool, Brown was released (later signed for Bristol City) and Schumacher signed for Bradford after a breif encounter with Carlisle I think.

 

Let's hope Kissock breaks the tradition.

Jackelz isn't lying.. Dominic King of the echo has made comparisons to Messi..

 

HIGHLY-RATED youngster John Paul Kissock has signed his first professional contract with Everton.

 

The 17-year-old, who will be in action this evening when the Blues begin their quest to win the FA Youth Cup for a fourth time at Macclesfield, is a regular for the Academy's under-18 side andhas also played for the reserves.

 

Bearing more than a striking resemblance to Barcelona's Lionel Messi, the pint-sized Kissock has put pen-to-paper on deal that will keep him at Goodison Park until 2009 and is looking forward to continuing his football education at his first love.

 

"I am delighted to sign, I've always wanted to be at Everton and to be here is amazing ," said Kissock.

 

"I feel I have been progressing well, and I am focused on moving forward."

ive seen all in about 25mins of sub appearances, hes played mostly for the academy this season as the reserve games have been few and far between with the new set up.

 

ive not seen constant good performances, but flashes of what he can do, first touch, dribbling, tricks, nice little passes

 

i think he'll make an appearance before the end of the season, but when the lad has filled out (he is little) we'll have a real talent on our hands

Size means Fook all, we've had a few good uns who where very small, Bobby collins for one but the best was Alan Ball,

Bill Shankly once said about Bally........"He's only about five foot tall and weighs 8 stone soaking wet, but 6 stone of it must be his Heart." :P:P What a player.

It's a strange one, he's 17 and hasn't been near the first team (Alkmaar aside). He's been given a first team squad number. Vidarsson was above Kissock in the pecking order but it looks like's he going to Holland. There have mumblings that he's more interested in dj'ing than football - I think he'll end up in League One unless we some some more of him inthe coming seasons. Although we may have to wait a while for him to play, let's not forget that Osman never made his début 'til he was 21

he hasn't played a first team game, moyes obviously doesn't think he's ready or good enough so best send him out to play with someone else.

 

Gretna's not where i'd want to be sent to work for a few months but he's certainly going to have to work hard, bottom of the table side where every game is a tough one. i hope he can come of age and make his mark there and we take him back.

Seems to have made a good start to his Gretna career, although they lost 2-0 against Hearts. From The Scotsman:

 

The diminutive striker John-Paul Kissock, a loan acquisition from Everton, scampered forward with the ball at his feet – and although that move also broke down, it hinted that Kissock, easily the most impressive of Gretna's new boys yesterday, will offer energy, enthusiasm and no little skill. He had some neat tricks – including one that took him past Robbie Neilson in the box in the second half – and Irons raved about him afterwards as a player "with a big career in football in front of him".

 

Also, MOM according to Gretnas website

from the look of it he's the only player playing for them!

 

good to see who's doing well.

 

hopfully if he's not going to play for us we actually get some money for him, i'd like to see him come back and get a chance at some point but if it's not to be then we need to make sure we get something for him.

 

good to see he's dealt with going up there though, from the sound of it he didn't particularly want to go and didn't even know where Gretna was before going. i know a lot of people have commented on his attitude and that he wouldn't get his hair when told to and seems more interesting in his djing than football but to go up to Gretna is a good move in sorting any attitude problems, a long way from home at a small struggling club where he's got the chance to prove himself and away from any temptation to do anything but that.

osman still is too lightweight, and doesn't have enough pace either

 

And has been sorely missed when hes not been playing.

 

Osman has scored a lot of important goals for us, hes a good little player, he doesnt get knocked off the ball as much as you might read in the daily rag.

Kissock in the SPL team of the week...

 

Midfield: John Paul Kissock – Gretna

Another on-loan player in the side, and another on-loan player who has excelled in the SPL. Kissock, contracted to Everton, may have had to wait his for his chance but he has shown why he is on Davie Moyes books. Playing behind the striker he is difficult to pick up and floats around the pitch causing endless bother to the opposition defenders and Saturday was no different. A constant threat to Jim Jefferies side that never stopped working, he must be one of the few good things to have come out of Gretna’s season in the top flight.
