Darron Gibson: Delaying surgery on his thigh injury

Gibson has been struggling with the thigh problem for some time, but Everton have been able to manage the injury of the Republic of Ireland international.

Moyes admits Gibson's injury could see him break down at any time, but the Everton boss has hailed the former Manchester United man for playing on with the problem.

"I think we are in control of Gibson but there is a danger," said Moyes.

"We thought he might need an operation earlier in the year but the medical staff have managed it well. We think we can get away with it just now but he will need an operation.

"I don't question his character as he came from a club that instils that in you.

"We're not going to let him roll over so we can tickle his belly.

"He's going to have to get up and get on with it - and he has done, to be fair."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
