Jo Leaves For Everton

Google language translator



Everton have completed the loan signing of Jo from Manchester City until the end of the season.

It's my understanding that this is the last transfer in or out of Manchester City, unless City have a change of heart over Newcastle's bid for Johnson.

But keep tuned into Manchester City Vital Football because as you know anything can happen at Manchester City.

See ya big man. Enjoy your nights out on Slater street, not bad if you like to party. On second thoughts, why don't you knuckle down, play some football and come back to us in the summer a better player? It's your call and your career mate.

Life could be worse. We got Shay Given -- very good signing; Wayne Bridge, Nigel de Jong and Craig Bellamy. We could have spent >25M on RSC but that would have been money thrown away, in my opinion. I am however mystified that we let Jo go without bringing in a centre forward. Maybe it will be Drogba in the Summer?

It would seem that Hughes was so desparate to offload Jo that he didn't even bother to line up a replacement. Sad commentary on how effective Jo has been for us, but it's not like we'll really miss him either. We just have to hope that he doesn't suddenly become the best striker in the league and helps keep us out of Europe!

He will probably get more of a chance of regular football with Moyes and will no doubt fulfil his true potential. It was obvious there was a personality clash with MH and never really got a proper chance with us.

Hope Moyes can re-ignite some sort of fire i him then maybe we will get back a useful addition to the team but I have a feeling EPL is not for Jo.

I think that Moyes will probably get more out of Jo than 'Bluesy' has thus far as I feel he is a more improvisational (and inspirational) coach. Hughes may look good suited and booted on the touchline for a midweek Uefa cup tie under the floodlights, not sure how much he fancies it on a cold Thursday morning on the training pitch.

I have confidence that Jo will do well with regular games, and come back a more mature player confident of his ability in the premier league. We have seen touches of class from him, he just hasnt had the long, unconditional run he needed before being dropped for Ched Evans. And going out on the lash didnt help his chances either, so its time for him to grow up at everton

He is too much of a risk to play at City, half the fans get on the teams back for anything less than a win these days. Everton have nothing to lose as they dont have any strikers available anyway. I am sure he will develop a lot at Everton and hopefully some tough workout in the summer will make him a better player.

I'd have liked to see Jo and some of our other strikers playing alongside a strike partner and see how they go on. This lad was horribly exposed with nobody to play off and his confidence nosedived.

We could play two strikers without petrov. I thought we might have gone for a wide left player and I understand that Hughes went for a loan deal with Bendtner but if this loan deal has an option to buy, then if they damage him they bought him.
