Since Joey signed his new contract last summer, he seems to be forgotten with lescott having a greta season and stubbsy finding some form. This coming despite him staarting just about every game this season. How has his season actually been as I believe we would be screwed if we didnt have him in the team??

very true. joey yobo is a outstanding defender and without him we wouldnt be where we are today. so ye ok he hoofs the ball most times but is a solid defender and this season is another unsung hero.

I'm a big fan of Joey Yobo, really glad he signed that new contract cos I had huge fears that he'd be goin and leavin us in the shit. I think its safe to say him and Lescott have been a revalation!!

A lot of the time people talked about Yobo..well during the last couple of
seasons,was to highlight a mistake or two.He did make one or two high
profile mistakes....and many myself not included wanted to talk about these
rather than the excellent defender he is.So I guess Yobo's more than happy
at the moment he's not the topic of conversation.
When the incredeble Lescott is allowed to move in full time to his position
in central defence,then what a partnership he and Yobo will make.With
Hibbert back to his best and a'fit' left back plus a great goalkeeper in Howard
then surely that will be some defence.
And I believe with some class players around Yobo,maybe Fernandes in front
of him,then I think we will see an even better Yobo!!

You watch luckypool,with poor old Hypia on his last legs,and with all those
dollars.....looking across the park at our central defenders....and realising that
there are some things money just cant buy!

They might end up spending a fortune and getting a Kroldrup!!!.....That would
be a shame.
Yobo and Lescott........PRICELESS!!!

He is one of those guys that you always expect to come out and have a good game, which he does. He isn't fancy but he is solid and gets the job done. He should get more recognition.

I think he's awesome, he's fast, strong, solid tackling, powerful heading, he's got it all. Well maybe he aint got the best concentration which is a possible reason to some mistakes but I think with Lescott by the side of him Lescott will be able to keep joey in order.

Joey is class. Every member has had a good seson this year (bar the obvious one or two lol).

If Joey doesn't get the recognition then what about Super Cars'!

He's been a ledge this year I really hope he signs an extension.

about cars. hes had an ok season. there was a period of about 5 or 6 games where he was complete shite however he took a turn for the better and put in some great performances.

however cars has been talked quite a bit on this board this season. yobocop hasnt.

he and lescott will be ace next season with a good left back and hibbo next to em. and with howard in goal man im excited. a great defense.

Joe is quality just need a bit more concentration and would be the perfect defender. He's had a great season and him and Jolean will be the perfect partnership for years to come. but I do worry about Arteta's future....

Joey Yobo is prone to the odd mistake but have you noticed that he makes fewer when Alan Stubbs is alongside him , ? Stubbsy is always down his ear , making sure he does get shut of the ball , and " yobocops " pace can cover for Stubbsy , I think that's why our defence has been outstanding this season , most goals to have beaten us have been long range potential ' goals of the season ' eg Taylor , portsmouth ... drohba lampard .. chelski , jenas ...spurs , ... yeah our defence will be even better next season , so with decent signings , a bit of luck with injuries and proper refs , who knows ?

Precisely Jart, Yobo needs someone to lead him and keep him in order and we all know Stubbsy is the best of em to keep a playin in line, but I do think Lescott could do the job as well so think our defence is looking good as long as we get a decent left back in the line up.

Rapidly becomming the new Davey Wier of our team, no noticable heroics or goal scoring but soild & dependable and a credit to himself.

I will remember always when we played Arsenal at Goodison & Joey kept him in his pocket all afternoon, that was a defensive lesson for any player.

now joey has learnt to just get rid instead of using his fancy footwork so often, his mistakes seem to have vanished.
a very important part of our great defence
