Firstly, thanks to the City fans who have registered to bring their thoughts. Always a pleasure to hear what other teams fans think, adds perpective.

I personally think Jo could be a runaway success. He was one of Moyes top targets. You have to remember that we were priced out as big money backers came into the market and prices were inflated. I mean come on guys, how much for Bellamy and 100 million for Kaka??? I'm glad he turned that down, that would have been the death of football.

We have missed a big imposing Centre Forward and he could fill that gap well, especially with our wide players. I know he probably won't play that way as he is more of a striker, but if he stays, think about him and the Yak up front. If he can master the classic Centre Forward role, Yak is very good at finding space and shows good movement. Could be a match made in heaven.

How many clubs parade a loan signing? That's what was embarrassing for me. If it'd been a permanent signing then that's absolutely fine.

It wasn't perading at all.

Its typical Moyes genius.

He get's to feel like one of the boys and he says the desire that the other players have.

I think its a very astute thing to do.

It says to Jo "you are one on the boys now and part of the team, look at how much they want to succeed".

He is a clever man Moyesy.

Can't really like or dislike him at the moment because we haven't seen him play. He's been making the right noises suggesting he's going to be a valuable team member but until tomorrow we can't know 100% if he's the man Everton need. Let's just wait and see.

ok i am a city fan, but im only on here to tell you about JO.

ok here goes

jo is one of worst players i have ever seen play for city and we have had a lot of bad players in the past

1. he spends more time on the floor than on the ground he is very week for his size
2. i dont know why everyone thinks he is fast, because he always looks like he needs a rocket up his arse
3. for a big lad he is a bad header of the ball.
4. he is terible for making runs.
5. he does pointless back heels and flicks that rarely come off
6. and he has had many chances to score but has only scored 3 goals this season


i hope he does well for you because he is still a city player and i dont think everton have an option to buy him
but i carnt see him scoring more than 5 goals to be honest

ps you would have been better of getting ched evans or benjani on loan


Absolute nonsense !! Jo is a teriffic player but MH has not given him a chance in this side. Personally I think Jo going to Everton is a brilliant move because I believe Moyes will bring out the best of him, and he is a great player, holds the ball up (a problem we have at City because they are all midgets), gets where he needs to be etc. The kid needs Prem experience and confidence and Moyes will give him tht. I really hope he does good for you guys ..

Ha ha there are numerous "urban myths" about that .. one of the popular ones is about the shirt borrowing ... But you will always find a blue telling you the Rags are not from Manchester. Old Trafford is not in Manchester - the suggestion is to call them Stretford United ha ha .. good place to have some banter is bluemoon ...

From the you tube clips I notice that he's happy with penalties, that for a start is pretty handy in the team at the moment, can't be too much longer before we get another one (penalty).
If he's brilliant for us, but City want him back....... <_< could we not give Vic some samba lessons and put some beads in his hair....and, well you know the rest :rolleyes:

Have you seen the clips on you tube with him playing for Brazil ? The lad is class ... just needs experience in the PL and his confidence building. TBH I'm pretty gutted about him going but I do think Moyes will bring out the best in him. What happens after the loan is anyones guess ?? I'd like him back at City but i'm not the manager !!

I know its only his first game and i may be jumping the gun, but if he continues to do well I hope there is some deal at the end of it. It will be gutting having to give him back at the end of the season. If we havent got an agreement to buy (which it seems from all reports is the case) we dont stand a chance of keeping him. Some other club will prob snap him up - can't see him wanting to return to city unless hughes goes.

The 3-0 win over Bolton saw J become the first Blues player to score two goals on their dbut since Tony Cottee in 1988.Not only that, but his last-minute penalty meant Everton fans witnessed two different players score from the spot in open play in the same game for the first time in the Club's history.J is the fourth striker in four years to score on his senior Everton dbut, following James Vaughan, Andrew Johnson and Yakubu.


Smashed a few records for us against Bolton.

Lets not get too carried away with this lad although first signs are very good. He went through a torrid time at Citeh, I'm sure that Sparky could see he was under performing. Moyes has a talent for bring people like this through, look at Mikel, Timmy, Jags and Lescott. No prem club was prepared to take a chance with them yet each could walk into most Prem side now.

I hope that J does succeed as it will be a blessing in the long term. The lad himself has said all the right things following his dbut, if he falls in love with GP and us lot he will want to stay. I cannot believe that there is not deal in place for a season end transfer, whats the point of signing him, we are not a kindergarten for a team many places below us in the league

What does concern me is the fact that if J suddenly starts cracking goals in all over the place who will the Arabs look to as a successor to Hughes in the summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! B) <_<

I agree with you completely Jimmy, but the problem is I can't see Man City letting him go for a decent price to us, I think we'd have to offload somebody like Yakubu in order to fund the move...

With the money that Manchester City paid for him I can't see him coming to us cheap. We need to start making plans on how to raise the money. If selling Yakubu is the option then so be it. Before he was injured he was just as shite and we were all calling for him to be dropped, J would be a good replacement and one who has already proved he can score goals. His performances for CSKA & his dbut shows how good he can be.

I hope Hughes does let him come as it would be the right thing to do, just with what they paid for him it could be easier said than done. It's not impossible though, if we want him enough and he wants to stay then Manchester might just have to sell.

Now that is an interesting question TC. It's a deal that I would be happy to do, Yakubu can go for me, he's not been performing well this season and we can see his lazyness coming through. He's done it other clubs such as Middlesbrough and Portsmouth and its starting to happen here, a swap would be a good thing.

Let's look at the Manchester City strike-force;

-Bojinov
-Robinhio
-Vassell
-Caiecido
-Evans
-Benjani
-Sturridge
-Bellamy

Thats the strikers that City currenly have in their first team. Bojinov, Robinhio and Bellamy are the only one's that I would call 'decent' Vassell has had his time and will probably retire where he is, Evans is still a young lad along with Sturridge. Caiecido I don't know enough about and Benjani isn't that good of a player. He's been over-looked at both Pompy & City now. He's not for the Premiership.]

From this, they have three good strikers, strikers that could probably fit into any team (especially Robinhio & Bellamy) so they would welcome another. One with experiance in the Premier League and one who on paper can score goals - Yakubu.

We all know what he's like, he's played for us. We know him inside and out. IMO he would be better off at City and would work well in a swap deal. With a little bit of persuasion I think City would actually accept. Hope it works out :)
