Joey's Off..............

Recommended Posts

Its in the sun today.

 

Says that the Arse want him and will get him for 3m.

 

Joey has 1 more year on his deal and won't sign a new one.

 

We will sell this summer so we get some money back.

 

Just as we have turned the corner and need to keep the better players there deals are running out and want to join a bigger club.

 

Also says that going for HOward.

 

Martyn will be offered a new deal but Wright won;t

hmmm. don't know how true this is, but i wouldn't be suprised given the fact that too old timers are keeping him out the team with at times not too impressvie performances.

 

If moyes had any eye on the future of the club he wouldn't be playing both of the older centre backs, weather they are playing well or not. there is no risk in playing joey, he's a top class player.

 

yes leaving him out encourages him to play better but if he never gets another chance then that's a waste of time isn't it!

i agree with you. although experience has helped us in recent times i think we do need to start looking to the future.

 

Yobo is an international player and deserves to stay in the squad.

 

As for Wright if he goes i dont thik that it will be sop badd... We could go for sumone like Cudicini if he isnt content with earning his wages on the bench as chelsea

Lets be honest this Arsenal rumour has been lingering for ages & let's not forget Mr Arsen V tried to scuttle our dealings with Marseille.

Nice that Joey kept a dignified silence when we where bottom early in the season, cos i expected him to be unhappy with the Nations Cup on the horizon.

 

Its a bit annoying that he is being kept out by a couple of old timers, so you can understand how he feels, and lets face it, the thought of going to Arsenal would turn most players Heads.

 

The problem i have with this rumour is the price, who the f**k could we get as a replacement for £3M, Moysey must put him straight back into the side This W/end.

 

 

As for the Goalie situation..................................bring back Tommy Myhre. ;)

3m!!!!!!! We were prepared to pay 5 for a defender who only played one game for us. Im still unsure about yobo to be honest hes too cool and laid back for me yes on his day hes a great defender but when hes not in the mood he doesnt give much just does the necessary

Typical Everton way of doing things tbh,ive never been a huge fan of yobo great first season but really hasnt done it all the time for me.

 

As for the fee,its the way of football im afraid,he could just wind down his contract and walk for nothing next year

I too think he is inconsistent, but sometimes he can look awesome others he can look a joke (MANURE BACKPASS TO NAME ONE)

 

He is still young though and I wish he would sign a new contract

 

Regarding that NEW contract. I have heard absolotly nowt on that subject

 

Has one been offered????

 

Better the devil you know and Joey has got all the tools in his locker. Look at the money we paid for Kroldshite

 

I would love to see both joey and Ferrari stay on as, from what i,ve seen of him, he too is very useful

Got to be worth more than £3m...

 

but as always, since the Bosman ruling, if we dont sell him now for a cut down price, he will walk for nothing in a years time...and in the time between then and now he will happily sit in the stands and refuse to co-operate (if he is that way inclined).

 

Hopefully we will keep him...if not, hopefully we will get at least £5m (if not more) and if not then hopefully we will learn from it and be tougher with our players or get a director of football in to negotiate the signings for Moyes and BK!!!

 

If Yobo reads this site - STAY AT Everton - we are the only club in the country that cares about its players and commits to looking after them long after they have finished playing - as Labone, McKenzie, Sharp...

Players these days dont need looking after, they're all millionaires and do you really thing most of them give a shit, hes an african and a proffesional. We'll never see him for dust once hes bled us dry. Not that I blame him

Have to keep Yobo as if not who else is going to play in the centre of defence for the next few years. Haven't heard Ferrari's name for a while so guessing he'll be off to Italy next year and Weir is way past his sell by date and should really hang up his boots at the end of the season or only be a backup player. Stubbs is also getting on and after him there is no one in the squad who specialises in centre defence. I think Yobo might stay but it will take an increased contract and Moyes will have to show him how much he means to the squad. A good way to start would be removing Weir and putting Yobo with Stubbs.

i think that yobo is worth hanging on to i think that he shud replace weir at the back, maybe give stubbs one more season. but dont forget, the story was in the sun. enough said!!

If he does go in the summer then at least three mil will go towards a new player, I remember not too long ago that we couldnt give players away

If Yobo went and played for a team in the Champions league i would expect him to go on and be one of the worlds best defenders. If he cuts out the silly errors form time to time he is world class. He relies on his pace to get him out of trouble when he ball watches sometimes but that will change with a bit of experience. I do hope he stays but unless he signs a new contract expect him to go just like Tommy.

We have had very little joy out of the lad, he makes silly mistakes, loses concentration very easily. If we can get more for him than we paid let's get rid.

 

I get the feeling we are holding on to him in the hope his potential will shine through at some point, I say let's not hold our breath flog him and buy British.

Everton are white, Everton are white, ello ello!

 

Only joking but thats how it came accross :huh:

 

If he is looking for regular european football we must sell because an unhappy player is no good to anyone and it would be a pitty to watch him go for free. Sell him and bring in no replacement tho' and we will loose alot more in January because the others will all think we have no ambition.

TOO TRUE FOZZIE

 

Yeah but the fact is that THEY may not know how lucky they are, but their agents and family do...

 

Therefore, they grab what they can while they can - making hey whilst the sun shines...

 

is that any different to what any other normal working human does?!

 

Hope we dont lose him, but if we do, then we do!

If the reports today are true that he has had the contract for a year and not signed then can't see him staying.

 

The problem we have is that Weir and Stubbs shouldn't be here next season which will leave us with no centre backs.

 

So what will happen is that Yobo will go and we will end up signing Weir and Stubbs for another year.

 

If he does not want to stay sell him in the summer and use the money to buy another one (or use the money to buy a ferrari)

I have re-read this one I see where you are coming from Fishman, but that was not my intention. If we can buy a British defender as a replacement, I care not a jot on his colour, religion or sexuality, as long as the b*gger can defend.

Adam makes a good point tho' need to be careful we dont end up with Stbuus & Wier at the back next season. Would keep Stubbs as cover but we need two good central defenders or close season will be a shambles!

Was standing outside waiting for the players after the Sunderland match. When Yobo came out a woman asked if he was going and all he said was "its up to moyes"

 

* YOBO LINK *

 

Judging from that, maybe when he says 'It's up to Moyes' it could either be 'whether he gives me a better deal' or 'whether he plays me more often'. Or maybe its like the stubbs scenario just before he left when player and manager were blaming eachother, we will probably never get the truth though really <_<

Yobo wants more money,Everton wont give more,so he'll move on with some luck

 

Not a player i would cry over if he went tbh,very average to say the least nothing special.

 

Now if he could convince that wastrel simon davies to go with him i'd be a happy man,because davies is shite.

With 1 year left yes i do..he's stalling so get rid,its fairly simple tbh,we dont have the cash to waste letting a player go for nothing..we dont have the cash to let him go for nowt.

 

And i dont think ferrarri will stay either.

It's not one mistake, he is a liability. He thinks he is a midfielder without the ability, but he is a defender WITHOUT THE ABILITY. Sell him and move on, but for no less than £7.5m.

Umbrella's up & am of the opinion Joey is one of the potentialy better defenders in the leauge & would be gutted to loose.

 

Theyre seems a glut of overated/overpriced centre halves about & ide rather Joey than Rio 2 be honest & would restore Unsy before going near that overated Boumsong character..he cost an arm & a leg .

 

Would be gutted to see JY leave. However Matt Upson as mentioned would be a fine addition if @ all poss.

To Tara Mac how can you say Yobo has not got got the ability as midfielder or a defender and then ask £7.5 million for him? I agree with you Raccy Boy at times our supporters do my fuckin head in! We bitch and moan all the time because some of us still think were in the mid 80's and deserve something that we shouldn't. God help us if we would have gone down a few season's ago because fuck me what would some of you been like then? Why do people still go on about the Man Utd game? Ok it was a bad mistake but who doesn't make them? Up to the African Nations Joey was our top man and it seems every time he has an injury he can't get back in the team for ages and it must infuriate him. I've said it before Joey is class and if he does go watch him go on to make a great career for himself and i bet half of you turn round then and say how you all knew he would turn out so good. I bet you all bitched about Materrazzi.

 

Ok i know it's a forum for opinions but fuck me!

Yobo is average nothing more...Marco on the other hand was class,anyone could see it,but he was too young for us when he moved to us.

 

I agree he played well the first season he came to us,but has done nothing since to make everyone rate him so much..as i've said before he's a defensive version of Graveson,all huff and bluster and nothing else.

 

Just the way i see it.

I cant see who we would replace him with even if we had millions to spend (which we dont) and expecting any more than 3 mil for a player who can leave on a free next summer is a joke.

 

Would you pay 8 mil for a defender when you can get him to sign a pre contract agreement with 2 mil sign on and wait a year? Jose, Alex & Arse are smarter than that!

 

If the kid goes it will be at a loss and we will regret it we should be keeping him, trying to sign upson & Farrari and letting Wier & Stubbs go. That would show ambition from the club and create real compotition at the back.

Upson would be a good signing we should have gone after when he left the arse tbh,

 

But if he wont sign a contrct he has to be sold simple as that,econic facts cold hard cash,filthy lucre moolah...it makes the world spin.

 

And yobo wants he slice of it by the looks of it.

To try & understand the logic ( money will be a part factor) of a foreign player consider this.

 

Put your selves in these shoes You are playing in Italy for lets say Empoli. Your contract is winding down & You no Juventus want you.

 

Do you sign for Juventus or re sign for Empoli?

 

Looking form outside of the blue square it's Simple really.

 

Let's be honest & admit we are all a tad blinkered as we would play for nothing & most would die for this clubs shirt.

I agree pat why would he want to resign for us if the Arse are truly after him.

 

DM has come out and said that no-one has asked about him and think it might have been a bad thing saying that as Yobo could decide that DM is trying to force his hand.

 

I would like Yobo to sign a new deal and stay as I have said before won't be able to replace him with the money we will get from his sale.

 

However if he does not want to stay and is going to leave for nothing next year then the right thing to do is sell him now and get some money out of him.

The only way you keep these types of players is by building a decent squad and making them feel they are a major cog in an up and comming team, the lure of silverware & money is great but the majority of players will stay if they feel they are important and the team is going places!

 

This is our problem at the moment Joey is bored, some of you think he is not that good a player and you are all entitled to your opinions but picture this. Joey is sold to Arse for 3 mil, we are unstable at the back next season and make little progress from this season and this time next year we will be having the same conversation about Arteta and Cahill then what will we be left with?

I must agree with Raccyboy with regard to the value of Yobo to this club. Yobo has proved since his arrival that he is one of the top centre backs in the EPL. Given his age and the fact that he has managed to look so impressive playing alongside Weir makes one appreciate his value even more. From reading the posts on this issue it does make we wonder if we have all been watching the same palyer!!!

That is a valid point Goldfish, but not easily acheived.

 

To build a decent squad and retain your decent player you have to pay them big buck.

 

Its a catch 22 -you do resonabley well and some of your better player shine - by default attention is draw to them and richer clubs try and sign them. Heads are turned and well we know how the rest of the story goes.

I think we all have to be realistic now and agree that the days of Matt Le Tissier staying at one club are long gone. Maybe Shearer staying at Newcastle is the last you will see as i can't see Torres staying at Betis either. As soon as a player makes the grade the bigger and richer clubs come sniffing and the players go rightly or wrongly. I think Spurs are doing the right thing by buying young players and keep re-negotiating longer contracts to keep them happy. Unfortunately the cream of the other clubs outside the GIANTS with the money are never gonna stay Rooney, Wright-Phillips, Wallcott to name but a few.
