David Moyes Talks A Load Of Old Jo

Google language translator


Everton boss David Moyes told the BBC that he was delighted when they were told they could take Manchester City and Brazilian striker Jo on loan until the end of the season.

The Toffee's made it clear prior to the January transfer window that the club was in no financial state to buy new players during the four week transfer frenzy, nevertheless, the Scotsman is more than happy to work with Jo and added that there might be a permanent deal in the offering come the summer.

Desparate people do desparate things. Playing Jo has to be better than playing no strikers at all. Doesn't it? Perhaps it's a scheme to make work for the local economy - think of all the bar staff that will be employed in the local nightclubs to cater for Jo?

I'm not so sure, Blues. He's not daft that Moyes.

No Moyes definitely is not daft. Then again, neither are we. If Jo goes and flops (or worse, disrupts their team) then we've destabilised a rival for UEFA cup qualification. We'll also know if we've wasted our money or not at no risk to ourselves. If Moyes can work his magic, we get a much happier and more confident player back in the summer, although we'll probably not catch the Toffees.

We're not daft. Really? Jo for 19m, Bellamy for 14m, 12m for a reserve LB and de Jong for 14m (when isn't he a free agent in the summer?) Just because we refused to pay 25m for the Royal Shakespeare Co does not make us businessmen of the year. I'd gladly have Moyes as manager rather than 'Bluesy'. He gets more out of less whereas we get less out of more.

A smart move for us if he sat here until summer he was gone no matter what at least this way he has a second chance.
