Glad we can't afford him. He's shite.

Vaughan, Fat Yak, Cahill, Saha...there's enough up there.

We need width in midfield.

The talk about Ebanks Blake reminds me of another Wolves striker who never went anywhere else despite being touted as one of the greats at the time. Remember Steve Bull?

If I am correct there was a lot of talk at the time he was coming to us. Or going to ManUre. or Arsenal. He never did any of that and simply stayed where he was.

Loyalty? Or did he just realise he would be rubbish in Top Flight football?

Can the same be true of Ebanks Blake?

I woulden't mind if he stayed at a reasonable price. The factor for me is that with the money that we pay out for Jo could be much better spent on someone else like Moutinhio or Darren Bent. Jo has done well on his loan spell but has not proved what he is worth, the kinda' money that Manchester City are asking for is way too much for him and it looks inevitable that he will end up back in a sky blue shirt at the end of the season.

He was good whilst he was here but I would be very surprised if he signed on a permanant deal.

Just popped into my head now, probably won't work but is there any chance of another 12-month loan?

FM have it down as £11m agreed transfer fee.
Personally I was not a fan at all when we first got him, Im starting to come round to him though now. His interviews are always good to read, he seems like a person who just wants to do well and from what Ive saw of him in the Everton he has potential to do well, play as the second striker as his hold up play is really good. Dont forget he is 22, still alot of time for him to make the grade, babel is the same age and I'd rather have Jo than him.

Saha may be offloaded - furthermore he is unreliable injury wise.

That leaves Anichebe, Vaughan and Yakubu.

Room for one more; if it be Jo or not is the question.

Well, we have a pretty good striker that at the moment is 4th choice, and I think he deserves more, a loan to a PL club would be very good for him.

I'm talking about Yannick Djaló, don't know if you know him, but you can take a look at him here:

He'd be a great loan signing, a very quick lad.

However he is very small and could never fit into the 4-5-1 with Cahill behind him. He'd play great in a 4-4-2 with Vaughan or Yak though, but the 442 is where we go wrong. :(

Same build as Andy Johnson haha.

everyone is taking about a right sided midfielder.
surely left is more of a priority! we have no left footed midfielders.
id much rather we got a genuine lefty in, stick pienaar on the right. he does great with baines down that left, but he would add the creativity we dont have on the right, and bringing in a lefty would give us much better balance.

as for jo, no thanks, shite (prove me wrong today jo)

But what if City let Jo go on another season loan?

Also, I agree with you on a left sided midfielder; imagine how a natural would link up with Baines! Sexplosion down the left for sure.

? .. Bayern isn't a team that can afford to mail it in for one year .. they gotta be there at the top evey year.. i don't think there's a chance in hell they'll let Toni or Klose go.. Podolski is most of the time a benchplayer for them so he's probably available.

I have really come around to Jo. I've been to the last two away games (Chelsea/ Sunderland) and he has impressed me no end. He is starting to come around to be an "Everton" player, by which I mean playing with the ethic and attitude that Moyes instills in his players and the squad.

I still have a problem with the fee that will be attached to him, but thats not his fault. I think it will be a shame when he goes and I will miss him. I didn't think it would happen but he has really turned me around and he clearly enjoys playing for us. Its just a shame that City paid such a ridiculous price for him in the first place. Oh well

I think Jo has got better and better. I think he has done well coming in considering he must have been at rock bottom after his first few months at Man City, young lad, new country, new league, massive transfer fees, moved on in January. Don't forget given the cup run he has still been a bit in and out of the team, I think the inter play up front is tidy at the moment and Jo is playing is part. He would only get better.

Would love another year of him on loan, and I see that as very much a possibility, I think city will go ballistic in the transfer market this summer, and getting Jo back in the squad may be low on their list of priorities.

One problem we have is that it isn't just about City and Everton .

If another team show interest and have the cash , then unless we have an agreement , it's bye bye Jo .
If you want him , then you have 3 league games to let Moyes know . :graduated:

I actually think he woud be a good signing and I would like to see him here however if he going to cost 10 mil + I think there are other areas on the pitch to concentrate on. i would rather Jo than Pavucheno (Russian at spurs) as he has proved he can play in our system.

The more i watch of Jo the more i like him. What with a good pre season down him and a bit more of premier league experience i think he could turn out to be a good premier league goal scorer. The only thing is if we want to break into the top four and win the euro league he needs to be more clinical. His build up play and speed are good but i think Moyes knows that the Yak is the only striker who takes his chances regulary and for that reason he will let Jo go back or take him on another year loan.

EDIT:- Merged with this topic as we don't need another thread on the same subject.

i agree with every point, other than the one in bold haha, his speed is minimal if im to be honest, his positioning is getting better but he needs to work on his sprints with and without the ball, an area which needs improvement

I disagree. I think he is good at breaking the offside trap and getting into 1 v 1 positions, it is just his finishing which lets him down, low and hard each time it is so predictable for the goalies. :angry:

Have you not noticed how often he gets caught offside? He's shit at breaking the offside trap for the most part.

I've seen him get unlucky on a few occasions and at times he has been in line it was just poor refereeing. I'm going off the Chelsea away game look out how many times he got in front of Cech.

i don't think jo warrants the price tag, 18 million? if he's worth that i'm worth at least 8. i think he seems like a nice lad and all but i just don't he's got that much ability.

i don't think he's looked anymore than decent to be honest, and that's when he does the odd good thing, he gets lost and becomes a spectator way too easily.
