GTF: the new Danny Coid?

GTF is truly the epitome of what this Blackpool team is all about. 100 per cent comittment, work rate, will to win and no shortage of quality.
But with so many injuries to contend with since the turn of the year, GTF has been shifted about all over the pitch to fill in the gaps. He's played up front, just behind 'in the hole', central and right midfield and even right back for a time against Crystal Palace. Yet no matter what position he plays, he seemingly always performs.
Danny Coid has been the utlity man in recent years having played in at least six different positions during his time with the club. And it seems Fletch is keen to challenge Coidy in that respect by trying out a whole host of positions. (Good to see Danny back in the first team, he deserves his place).
But it would be unfair to label GTF a utlity player. He is an integral part of the Blackpool team. And for less than 100,000, GTF was an abolsute bargain. For me, he would walk into most teams in this league - as a striker or an attacking midfielder.
GTF has five goals so far this season, but having failed to hit the net this year, he will be hoping to break his duck for 2009 against Doncaster on Saturday. And who would bet against him doing just that.
