Does anybody know what Yobo's goal celebration was about on Sunday?
He appeared to be making a 'talking' or 'keep your mouth shut' gesture to the Street End.
I was listening to a phone-in afterwards and a fan suggested it was a 'shut your mouth' gesture in response to criticism Yobo received. If this is the case, JO'BO is playing a dangerous game as Everton fans have been very loyal to him even following some major mishaps and mistakes.
Can anybody explain or comment?

As if he’s telling the fans to shut there mouth. The atmosphere was good on Sunday and everyone was right behind the team.
Yobo is a fantastic servant of this club, the vice captain and having met him has nothing but nice words to say about Evertonians.

He either cups his ear, or puts his finger to his mouth.
It’s just his celebration.
It’s pathetic people are trying to read into it- there is nothing obscene or untoward about it.
I’m getting fed up of listening to City 96.7 now simply because after the match I am listening to a bunch of morons talk about Everton.
One guy even said teams around us like Rovers will be outspending us in the summer! Ludicrous.
The majority just follow the official line. i.e. 3 weeks ago Fernandes was crap and never should be allowed to play for Everton. Now, they all think he should be signed up!
I despair. Sorry for the rant.

Why would we give Moyes 8 million with a year left on the contract, and him saying we need more investment

Oh me of little faith...

From now on can we use this as the benchmark for contributors who don’t know the difference between wild, unsubtantiated speculation and fact?
If you make statements, Robbie, do us all a favour and prove them.

Other than last summer, when it looks like money came out of nowhere to sign Yakubu, we were all fuming about how little Moyes had to spend.
With Kirkby stadium prices rocketing I can defo see a pot of £8m plus whatever Moyes makes of selling players.
We will see...

Now im not saying with europe this year and another decent finish in the league,it will be that again,but dont be surprised.
He will probably spend 13 mill,cos of faddy?s sale.
There is a reason moyes said he wants more funds,he wants to challenge the elite.If he doesnt get the funds he thinks he will have taken us as far as he can,and with celtic winning nowt,you couldnt blame him if he was offered millions and cl football.
My belief is he wants silverware and wants the board to do there job and get some decent money together.
I love everton!

All I?m saying is I wouldn't be surprised. What if we will still be paying for Yakubu this summer as well??
I think to make strides this summer we need another mix of bargains from the lower leagues and a couple of pricey international players.
Oh yea, well done Chelsea for beating the Red Shite.

I'd be pissed off too if I had just spent my whole game getting shouted at by David Moyes. Probably shouting at him to defend more or something against his nature.
