It certainly is good news, now all we need is to bring some players in to feed him.

Yeah, just seen the article:
http://www.evertonfc...ak-is-back.html

Let's see if he gets 90 minutes under his belt, maybe a goal or two :)

Much more exciting prospect than Jo is at the moment.

Yak's goal scorin form before his injury...yes.
How well/quick Yak gets up to speed and banging in goals remains to be seen.

Either either, a welcome head ache for Moyes to have.

isnt that the truth! not happy at the moment.

if we get 45mins out of him thats a good start, 60mins would be brilliant.

And the Fat Spanish Waiter moaning again :lol:

Ball goes out for a corner, Reina booked for protesting it should have been a goal kick and kicking the ball away. Benitez complaining to the 4th official that one minute injury time is up. Over comes corner and Villa score! Priceless!

And it just gets better...Gerrard gives away a penalty! 3-1 now.

Would be nice to see him on the benchfor European game...give him last 20 minutes if we still have a nice aggregate lead.

I'd go for safety first to be honest. He'll probably be knackered after tonight, so to put him in for another (regardless of how long he plays) would be abit daft I reckon. Apart from that Vaughan, Saha, Jo, Agard etc have all done a full preseason so will no doubt be sharper at this stage anyway.

Great to see him making his way back though!

With Bily, Pienaar and Mikel all in the same team Yak would score a bucket-load IMO. I also think that he can play *with* Saha, if Moyes is a bit braver and plays two strikers :lol:

So the yak scored on his return.. but my question is, how long will it be before hes back in contention for a first team spot, to be honest i cant wait to have him back, it will be like a new signing! so im counting down the days until hes back playing... do you think it could be fulham? or maybe a game after that?

My thought is that I am glad we have more competitive strikers than we have had for a while at the very least.

Personally, I'd love to see him back at the Fulham game whilst Bily makes his début. That would be awesome.

It's great that he has travelled. TBH i can't see him being involved at all, but I think he could make the bench on Sunday. I'll just be delighted to see him playing again. Great player and a big miss for us. He's played two games now for the ressies and scored 3 goals, all be it against weak opposition, but it's good to see he still has ability. Just hope the injury has not hampered him too muich, some players never really come back properly from that type of injury.

Very true. At least he was never renowned for being a mover though :P .

True true. I've been impressed when i've seen him recently though that he does not seem to have put much weight on. I thought he was going to come back being bloody massive.

Probably in better shape than expected since he has to be kept on his toes what with Saha's form. Competition causes improvement in attitudes at the least, or so I think it might be the case here.

Moysie said at tonights press conference ""I would be disappointed if we didn't get at least four, maybe more,
We've made quite a bit of progress I feel and maybe I'll be able to announce something shortly, but not yet."

Bt remember, he is a Nigerian 26. Very different from what his actual age could be. You don't have to have a birth certificate in Nigeria so for al we know he could actually be 35. Moyes got in trouble a few years back after a Uefa Cup game for saying something similar.
