No it wasn't.

Happy to be proved wrong if someone can show me evidence that they called the signing a master stroke at the time. If they did they get my utmost respect.

It doesn't really matter who "called it" or who thought he would be bad. Credibility on here is overrated. We all get some right and get some wrong. So it goes.

Bottom line here: Gana is a good player. We all win. Simple.

That's not what I said though, I didn't say anyone claimed it as a masterstroke. It was a light hearted comment about the handful of people who moaned that we bought a Villa player and despite having a billionaire were only spending 7m on a player. It wasn't intended to become a big topic of conversation to be honest.

You're right that we all get some wrong (I once vehemently called for us to get Bony rather than Lukaku, for example).

But it's still funny to read back on some comments. I think @efcforlife 's is my favourite:

I'm sorry but right now Gana isn't even close to keeping Mcarthy or Barry out the team.

Are you people having a fucking laugh.

He has played one season of premier league football in a team that got walked all over(the midfield especially so).

He is a decent footballer but that's it, he has the potential to become better but the signing is one of the most pointless I've ever seen whilst following Everton.

Even if we consider potential, he is older than Mcarthy and Besic.

Panic buy, squad filler

The joys of any forum is that if you stay long enough then you are destined to make a twat of yourself at some point. Some of us manage it more often than others mind.

Which was everyone on here. Bar none. No-one saw this coming, despite what they may claim after the event.

Wasn't everyone. There were loads who had no clue but were a little excited by his stats

The guy is a star anyway. I don't think I've seen a new player turn in 5 man of the match performances in a row from debut but he churns them out one after the other.
We may see a dip in form once his batteries start to fade but then again he looks like he's fitted with a self charging generator. Love him already.

Definitely don't look at the Euro 2016 thread if you want to believe this.

I texted how great I thought he was Jim White. I'd ask him to read my text out on the radio, but you probably wouldn't believe it so what's the point.

Would villa had got a point without him. Hard to understand how a side with him in it could be as bad as villa were. Though saying that they are near the bottom of the championship without him
If pogba had put these performances in people would be saying he was justifying the 90m fee. So far he's been "can play for anyone" good.

It's interesting, the last 2 games he's frequently been further forward positionally than before, generally further down the pitch than Barry.

Wonder if that's Koeman wanting us to pose more attacking threat against weaker teams, and trusting Gueye to get back when he needs to, or if it's more that he's seeing more and more the attacking qualities that Gueye can bring.

Could well be that Koeman wants us to win the ball back further up the pitch.

Gana seems to be a magnet for loose balls, if he is position ally further forward he can pick up the loose balls when attacks break down and let us maintain the impetus.
