Jo Has To Go - Simples!

Way back in 2008 Manchester City bought Joo Alves de Assis Silva aka J for an estimated £19million but the 23-year-old found it difficult to establish himself in the City team and featured in just six games at the start of the 2008-09 season. Subsequently the Brazilian striker was loaned out to Everton, but after just a mere one season at Goodison Park the so-called striker brought Everton into disrepute and he returned to Manchester City, tail between his legs. On the very day he returned to Eastlands he was immediately loaned out to Turkish side Galatasaray.

The future

City are hopeful of offloading another Brazilian flop by offering around £25million for Spain's World Cup winger David Silva from Valencia and in return giving the Spanish side J for nothing.

Would Valencia fall for this cunning plan? Tell us what you think by adding your thoughts in the comments section directly below this article.

I tried to find Youtube highlights of J at Manchester City and Everton but I couldn't find anything worthwhile, hence I had to go even further back in time to his days at CSKA Moscow.

Totally agree Jo and for that matter Robinhio have to go and the only way they can be of any use is make weights in swap deals - with us topping up the balance. Has anyone ever admitted liability for Jo....was it Sven?

i suspect it was a cunning plan masterminded by taggart utilising the dodgy secret 'wheeler dealing' skills of one of his spawn of satan offspring.

Jo came to Man City in the black hole that existed between Svennis going and Sparky arriving. Thaksin Shinawatra's advisers went to Moscow and came back with the wrong striker! Wagner Love was the man they shoudl have signed.

I agree with johnny baquette. Wagner was always the one to get and hes still scoring goals for flamengo now. Jo doesnt have the hunger to suceed in a top league. Hes best suited for the greek or dutch league

Seriously, they were sent over to get CSKA's striker and came back with Jo!! At the time Love was in barnstorming form!
