Good news, he'll probably be in central midfield, at least I hope he is as I'd like to see Baxter given a run out on the right.

Ive treid so so hard to be a fan of his but i just cant. I see what he brings to the side and from the ankle down he is one of the most gifted at the club.

But all in all im glad he is back. He work rate is impressive and his eye for a pass too, he just lacks pace and strength

This is good news.  We need more bodies for the hectic Christmas schedule.
There's nobody better than Murf667, she's the best little Evertonian I know!
As for you, Murf 668, your Everton shirt can hardly wait.

If we hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards.  Checkmate!

Not if those bodies are of the calibre of Osman. Prefer to see Neville back first

Of course it's good news to have Ossie back. To suggest otherwise is just daft.

While the midfield looks strong at the moment, people forget that we've only got those 5 midfielders. With Ossie coming back it at least gives us the opportunity to change things in games.

He'll be on the bench to begin with in the league, but he should be ok as a sub as coming on with fresh legs will reduce some of the physical disadvantages that he has when he starts games.

I agree with the majority....good to see him back. I think we miss players like Ossie more than we think sometimes!
It's getting pretty serious.

Good news as far as I'm concerned. I've never been a massive Ossie fan but he brings alot, both on the pitch and in the dressing room. He'll run until he drops, and will lead by example.

A good match for him to get his fitness back, however, I just hope that he can get through the game without injuring himself, unlike Yobo and Distin 2 weeks ago.

When was the last time Ossie had a bad game IN EUROPE? (as I'm type this question I remember the AEK home game he was pretty dreadful but thats not the point  ;) )

The play suits him much more and more often than not he's one of our better players.

Good to have another midfielder back

Three Lions on a shirt, Jules Rimet still gleaming.

Glad to see him back. I'm a big fan of his, and he'll have to dominate that midfield tomorrow with all those youngsters around him.

Good thinking, let's break his ankle, then Neville will surely be back before osman.

It shows how bad things are when I'm over the moon to have Osman back. Don't get me wrong, he's a great player, but in a full strength team he makes the bench at best for me.
Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.
