32,000 according to Sky, bloody good turnout that

And the rest!  I was in the main stand and the stadium looked almost full to me.

Gibson looking fit sound and spraying quality balls around was a big plus for me. A few on here mentioned earlier Barry must be knackered, AKA fucked. He got a knock and that may be a good opportunity to give him the break he possibly needs. A fully fit firing Gibbo is a decent replacement/stand in for Barry. And who knows? He might even give him a run for his first team place. Gibson looked good last night and it will take some of the pressure and expectation that's been on Barrys shoulders since the start of the season. Step up to the plate Gibbo.

he did look good, but if I was in that role last night for the last half an hour i would have looked the same.

zero pressure on him, just stroke it about etc.

Barry can do that and more in much more different atmospheres.

Gibbo is an understudy and a good one, but he's not the answer to when barry goes.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

I thought it looked less full than Wolfsburg which was listed at 29k :eh:

He's not a direct replacement (but probably the closest we have if pushed) - his range of passing is more direct but is obviously less of a defensive shield.

I doubt Gibson is in the same class as Barry as most do. He's never really had much of a chance to play under Martinezs' *tutelage* though. How many games has he played just out of interest. Not that many. The point I'm trying to make is he looked strong and fully fit. I don't think I've seen him in that condition since he's been here. I've got my hopes up really. :)

I like him. Remember when we were unbeaten with Gibbo in the side and he seemed to be our most important midfield player? And when he got injured folk lost the plot?

Barry is better (I know I used to slate him at Man City - but I'm a dick, so what?) but I'm confident Gibbo can take over seamlessly when he's out. It's nice to be able to say that about such an important player as Barry.

I can't remember how good Gibson is in tight situations but Barry is very good in them. Good feet. Gibson generally seems more purposeful and incisive in his passing and is probably the best long passer in the team.

With another clean sheet, it means that we have only conceded one goal in the last 5 games - and to think over a month ago Howard was picking the ball up from the back of his net for fun.
