I've just come in to the delight of the breaking news on Sky Sports. West Ham have bid for the Yak!
This is the second, and obviously a more improved offer, for what surely is a surplus to requirements striker. Now I know it is the obvious question I pose, but will we accept this time around ?
The much needed funds generated from his sale, would then be available to DM. In my opinion it's a question that needs no answer. With the strikers we now have on board, we could then utilise these funds to make the donavan deal a reality, and get pienaar to sign on the dotted line with the remaining funds going towards his inflated wages.
I know this is a debate that has been posted previously, but surely now is the time to act and get rid of a striker who in the eye's of most is no longer needed or wanted.
Everton, please make a swift and positive decision on this offer and don't delay with your response. We could then be starting our season with donavan on board and pienaar tied up for a few more years, and all in the knowledge that the yak has moved on with his best years behind him. I know who will be the winner in this deal and it ain't West Ham.

It depends how much it is Craig. If £8-9m, then yes, probably. Don't forget we were paying his wages for the whole of his recovery period.
It wouldn't surprise me though if he went off to West Ham and found his scoring boots again.

Beckford is unproven in the Prem; Vaughan, injury prone is an under statement; Gueye? Silva? Anichebe, never going to be prolific enough.
Even Saha's fitness is suspect at times.
5 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:15:41
6 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:17:48
very good point.
That would be an improvement and an injection of enthusiasm.
7 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:20:56
Unless this Remy rumour has some truth in it and the money went towards that.

Well, if the rumours are true about us raising money to buy my mate Davide "40 goal a season for the pub team" then we can sell the Yak - i.e. is some unknown guaranteed to be any better? The Yak is a goalscorer and yes, it's taken him a long while to get over a bad injury but he's still relatively young (no Nigerian age jokes please, their FA may be watching these pages).
11 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:28:33
12 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:19:06
Now if I'm not mistaken, Crouch is 29 and the other week, Moyes was moaning and saying the price for Donovan was too rich for a player is age (28) so to me, £7m is too much for Crouch!.
And if we were to sell Yak, I wouldn't want Crouch anyway, I'd rather us buy a younger striker, preferably a target man who can play up top on his own and hold up the ball and link the play, someone a bit different to what we've already got.
13 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:34:42
14 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:40:38
15 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:38:16
And if we could get £9m for the Yak I'd be happy with that.
16 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:46:46
17 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:46:56
18 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:56:48
At the moment the decent teams know that if they stop our left hand side then they stop our threat. With Donovan on the right we would have threat on both wings. Just my opinions.
19 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:57:35
On another note, I just watched Jack for England Under-21s, he was captain, played 60 minutes, and was excellent from the first minute; well done, Jack.
20 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:52:57
I'd personally like Donovan on th fantasy football stakes (and note his twitter icon is still Everton no.9 shirt). Would Crouch want to move up to Merseyside given the revelations of him with a prostitute in "News" of The World on Sunday? And not going to have a go about Bellend, but well, no thanks from me.
Obviously much depends on what's on offer for The Yak.
21 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:02:23
Could be a factor.
22 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:06:59
I know his injury was bad but I just dont feel Yakubu had the passion for it last season.
Yakubu has a history of starting of at new club scoring loads of goals and then slowly losing interest.
Considering he only scored 8 times last season will we miss his goals that much?
Surely Beckford or even Vaughan will be good for 8 goals? Plus we have Anichebe, Gueye and Silva.
23 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:13:34
24 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:10:48
To hell with these players having families and having to move to a new area and at times new countries. As soon as they don't suit what you believe your club needs, you just say get rid. So don't come back on here complaining about how players show no loyalty. Because they show just as much loyalty as you show to them.
25 Posted 10/08/2010 at 20:54:53
If we kept him I think we would be lucky to see more than 10-12 goals this season, even if fully fit, then this time next year he will be gone for £5 or 6 million at best.
Flog him to West Ham for £10mill now, add it to whatever Bill can find down the back of the sofa in the board room and get Landon or Loic Remy in.
26 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:15:40
27 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:19:22
And the point about his family having to move , well boo hoo on £40k + a week im sure he would find it a lot easier to relocate than the average worker who may have to relocate with thier job earning around £25k a year.
Sorry mate but i dont agree with you on this one !!!!
28 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:18:30
29 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:25:32
30 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:23:16
He only scored 8 goals last season?? Well fuck me like, Saha only scored 13 goals & he had a 'sensational' season. Get a grip guys, we need a fuckin squad here with experienced strikers not a couple of kids & a guy who's unproven at this level.
31 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:28:04
Fair enough if we have to sell Yak to bring in other players, but Crouch?? I give up, we start getting a decent team and people talk about Crouch. Sweet Lord!
32 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:24:14
33 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:27:42
No, you demand loyalty while it suits you, then to hell with them. Well guess what, every single player knows that's how you feel which is why loyalty means as much to them as it does to you. Nothing. You say it perfectly, it is a business so sell him while we can get a decent amount for him.
Well they're involved in the business, so they'll go where the best offer comes from. But you don't like that side of the business, oh no. Then the players are all just money grabbing mercenaries right? So what does that make you for wanting to send a player anywhere in the world if the money is right?
34 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:26:22
35 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:37:24
Don't think so Brian. Many want to keep him/are unsure.
36 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:38:22
If my employer started shoving me £40k a week - as opposed to the £10k I'm currently on... spoiling for a move I am.... tossers.... only a 2 year contract too, they'll be shafted come January if they dont agree something with my missus erm I mean agent soon - so I could run around a field for a living in my twenties (or late 30's as in Yaks case.....) I think my loyalty lie first and foremost with them - not the other way round.
Or shall we just hand the entire game over to them?
37 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:47:06
Im sorry but the harsh reality is ... football is now a business and once your football pedigree expires you are moved on.
Im not saying that is the case here, and Im sure DM will only sell if he feels it is the correct move for Everton.
38 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:51:30
The Yak goes and we get the stilleto kid.
Possible top four to mid table in an instant.
39 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:54:34
You're missing my point. I know it's a business. I'm pointing out that fact to all those who bitch about a lack of loyalty. I don't care if we sell him, and I don't get so upset and cry lack of loyalty when a player sees he can make double his current wage. If I got offered double my wage, I'd leave, and so would you, and so would every other person. But when a player does that on our team, people call him a mercenary. But when we sign a player from another team, who left that team to come to us for more money, we talk about how excited we are that he chose Everton.
40 Posted 10/08/2010 at 21:55:18
Everyone sees Landon as a right winger but he could also do a decent job up front if Saha breaks down and Beckford doesn't do the business. And not forgetting the option of putting a certain Tim Cahill up front if need must. Timmy up front for the season could be a 15 goals a season man.
And it would let us accomodate Arteta/Fellaini and Rodwell in the middle with Landon on the right and Pienaar on the left. Not a bad front 6 in my eyes.

It's just that this isen't the first time, that getting rid of the Yak has come up.
44 Posted 10/08/2010 at 22:17:07
"The former Portsmouth and Chelsea boss is keen on a reunion with Yabuku, according to the Liverpool Daily Post. Grant was in charge of Israeli side Maccabi Haifa during Yukubu's spell at the club from 2002-03."
45 Posted 10/08/2010 at 22:12:57

47 Posted 10/08/2010 at 22:42:22
48 Posted 10/08/2010 at 22:39:44
Currently it is them and their agents who rule the roost.
Even if a deal is struck with the hammers there is nothing we can do if the Yak does not want to go. He could, if he wished, sit out whats left on his current lucrative contract then go on a Bosman a la AVdM.
49 Posted 10/08/2010 at 22:42:22
50 Posted 10/08/2010 at 23:00:43
To be honest its been a while since Yak has looked like a top class goalscorer. Maybe due to his injury, maybe due to something else...who knows.
If we could get £8-10m and put it towards a more mobile goalscorer (like Remy...possibly?) I would n't be displeased.
On the other hand i'd also be happy for him to stay and try to rediscover the form of two seasons ago.
51 Posted 10/08/2010 at 23:05:41
Anything over £5 million just seems too good to be true.
52 Posted 10/08/2010 at 22:54:10
The Yak is lazy. I'll cheer if he scores but I'll cheer louder if we off-load him ASAP and bring in Donovan.
Saha may go down, but last I checked Cahill did pretty damn well playing striker in the past. And at least you know you get 100% out of him all the time.
If we bring in Crouch I'll puke. Storks don't make overly good footballers.
53 Posted 10/08/2010 at 22:56:50
54 Posted 10/08/2010 at 23:36:29
55 Posted 10/08/2010 at 23:16:39
There's rumours of a team in Italy who are on the lookout for such gems - although perhaps Palmero have just decided to diversify into the world of Candid Camera/You've Been Framed japery.
For the record I'd prefer to keep Osman
56 Posted 10/08/2010 at 23:40:28
57 Posted 11/08/2010 at 00:02:46
It's a fair shout about one way loyalty but to be honest we only want what's best for Everton. That's why we want Piennar to stay. So we need the cash for Donavon, then which player makes us a better team. It seems the Yak of three years ago has gone, whereas four years of Donavon can only take us to the next level.
Sometimes business is harsh but the club has to move on and this has always been a fact even before high wages and greedy agents began sucking the game dry. All that matters is Everton so if we sell to buy then it's to get a better player in, get it wrong more often and you end up like the RS, get it right and you end up like Davey Moyes.
58 Posted 11/08/2010 at 00:14:25
At the WC he shown he could hold the line up front on his own, is quick, hardworking and don't give up.
59 Posted 11/08/2010 at 01:46:02
I've lost count of the times I sat fuming at Moyes for picking Saha in an away game when the ball came straight back at us because he couldn't hold it up. Yes Saha is quality on his day but with 30mins to go you need someone to relieve pressure up front and for me Yak is the only one plus he gets his fair share of goals. Anyway I would be sorry to see him leave.
60 Posted 11/08/2010 at 02:25:42
But if the Club sells the Yak then the CLUB are not fulfilling the contract to the full.
61 Posted 11/08/2010 at 02:53:28
That poll was during the WC. It started off about 55/45 for the Yak to stay, and not surprisingly after his disastrous 'miss of the millenium' against S.Korea it slid to about 43/57 in favour of keeping him.
Which kind of proves my point - people are split on the issue. I must admit that miss was so bad I began questioning whether or not we should keep him myself, after previously being in favour of doing so.
I wonder if it affected DM's thinking as well....
62 Posted 11/08/2010 at 03:37:16
63 Posted 11/08/2010 at 04:31:19
Certainly a problematic and incoherent ethical system right there.
64 Posted 11/08/2010 at 04:38:05
But, we certainly sell if those folks want to move on.
IF we are selling Yak, I have a feeling he has indicated that he is happy to move on. If that is the case, then its not about loyalty. Its about a relationship ending amicably: both parties happy to part ways.
65 Posted 11/08/2010 at 07:53:51
66 Posted 11/08/2010 at 08:53:58
67 Posted 11/08/2010 at 08:54:18
So I'd be happy to move Yak on and get in a non-African replacement who isn't 3 stone overweight.
68 Posted 11/08/2010 at 08:37:24
- If it's a money-bags club (e.g. Chelsea) and if you play like the Drogba's of this world then you win them too many games so they don't want you to go.
- If you are a selling club (e.g. when Middlesbourgh dropped to the Championship) and if you play like the Huths of this world (i.e. lazily!) you are sold in a way which benefits both parties, but if you play like the Wheater's or Adam Johnson's of this World they won't want to let you go.
- If you are a club in-between this (e.g. Us) and you play like the Arteta's, Lescott's, Jags's and Pienaar's of this world or play your heart out like the Hibbert's of this world then they don't want to let you go.
....if you can't be bothered moving for a ball, had one decent season, decided not to come from international duty on time when you felt like it and have (allegedly) duped the club about your age then what kind of loyalty are you showing the club?
Conversely, if a club is not making itself irreplaceable by treating you the best they can (e.g. not giving you medical attention when needed, or signing you then not giving you an opportunity to prove yourself. Looks like we were incredibly loyal to those Shylocks Gosling and Pienaar) then you have a right to show them no loyalty.
69 Posted 11/08/2010 at 09:19:27
Just one point about Loyalty that has been mentioned. Didn't Yak come out and say he was close to leaving and joining Spurs just before his Achilies Injury. hardly sounds like he is desperate to stay.
70 Posted 11/08/2010 at 09:24:04
71 Posted 11/08/2010 at 09:37:12
Yak would be the last of our strikers that I'd let go....
72 Posted 11/08/2010 at 09:51:16
If this was this time next year and Beckford had set the Premier League alight then you might say this would make sense, but it's not and so, apart from Saha, the Yak is the only other proven goalscorer on our books. However, if we have got either Bellamy or Remy to come in, then I'd say "Go for it".
73 Posted 11/08/2010 at 10:12:14
74 Posted 11/08/2010 at 10:33:24

77 Posted 11/08/2010 at 11:05:27
78 Posted 11/08/2010 at 11:12:38
The only proven striker we will have will be Saha - who is also a proven sicknote...It would be utterly daft to sell the Yak.
79 Posted 11/08/2010 at 11:38:25
I really like the Yak, statistically he's got a great record but to watch him strolling round the park is one of the most frustrating things going, though at times hilarious. I remember watching him from the stands in the Clattenberg game I think convinced he'd fallen asleep on his feet.
Personally, I think it's going to be a while before he really gets over his injury by which time I think even he will have to admit he's past it.
If they offer us £7m take it, if they offer double figures bite their hands off replacement or not.
Ciarán - I see you're still to get over your blind spot re: our "4th Striker". He's undoubtedly a proven striker, just not at this level. Throw Beckford in, sink or swim. I'm very confident he'd beat Yak to the end of the pool...
80 Posted 11/08/2010 at 11:50:39
He may be able to outswim the Yak..but this is not a gala.
81 Posted 11/08/2010 at 12:02:05
82 Posted 11/08/2010 at 12:03:13
83 Posted 11/08/2010 at 11:47:21
Re his workrate - there's more than one type of striker, you don't have to run a million miles every game to be top drawer -huge workrate won't even necessarily make you a better player. Look at Rooney in the WC - ran his socks off all over the pitch, but was worse than useless anyway, partly because he was constantly out of position due to his workrate.
The Yak, when fit, is seriously excellent at two things: linking play and putting the ball in the net when it comes to him in any sort of decent position. He looked to me like he was getting back in form and fitness late last season and at the WC (that miss aside!), and personally I would be loathe to lose him now.
84 Posted 11/08/2010 at 12:14:28

86 Posted 11/08/2010 at 12:44:12
87 Posted 11/08/2010 at 12:37:30
Only sell the Yak if you can be certain you're going to get a proven goalscorer to replace him.
88 Posted 11/08/2010 at 12:37:40
Tottenham, Man Utd, Arsenal and Real are teams that can get away with having a player who just sits in the box and who's only job is to stick the ball in the net when it's laid on a plate for them.
However due (wrongly) to our defenders (even Johnny) we require a striker who can win punts (or in Johnny's case 'high perfectly placed arrows') up the park as well as help create opportunities which Yak just isn't willing to jump or run for (I remember one occasion against Fulham at Goodison ? just before his injury ? in particular).
He did jump and run for the balls (obviously not simultaneously, that would be called skipping! ;) ) for a few months when Moyes publicly gave him a rocket up the arse, but that effort soon disappeared.
89 Posted 11/08/2010 at 12:52:34
90 Posted 11/08/2010 at 12:55:32
91 Posted 11/08/2010 at 13:19:05
I don't care if he is lazy, it's the midfields job to put the ball where the Yak can do the most damage. He is our most natural goalscorer, look at when he did miss that sitter in the World Cup, he had the balls to take the penalty. Forwards who are up themselves is what we need. That miss could have crippled another players confidence, not the big fat Yak, waddles up and slots.
"Feed the Yak and he will score", not "boot the ball into a corner and hope he will suddenly turn into Henry and swan passed three players and slot" The words are the song are a clue to that. Give him the ball infront of goal and watch him usually dispatch it.
92 Posted 11/08/2010 at 13:38:09
93 Posted 11/08/2010 at 13:44:43
94 Posted 11/08/2010 at 13:48:26
With you on that one Tony. It annoys me when the Yak gets slated for not tracking back or being lazy - have these people actually seen what he does with the ball when he tracks back - he'll inevitably try to dribble the ball around an opposing player on teh half way line - and lose it...
He's a liability when he drops back - Moyes should realise that. Shoulder of the last defender...ball in the back of the net.
95 Posted 11/08/2010 at 13:58:16
Is crying for a game..
96 Posted 11/08/2010 at 13:59:12
Nasty little gobshite who is poison at every club he's at. We're well away from that one.
97 Posted 11/08/2010 at 14:06:09
At least he'd be OUR gobshite though!
Listening to Moyes this morning, he seemed to be up for the idea of selling Yak ? for the right price (£9 million).
Be sad to see him go, but I think he may have worked for Grant at Maccabi & Pompey before, so I'm guessing it may happen.
We'd definitely need a quick replacement though. Pavlyuchenko for £7 million a possibility, perhaps? Be good for Bily too...
Easy this football manager lark!
98 Posted 11/08/2010 at 14:02:32
a) a midfield capable of laying it on a plate for him AND....
b) a defence that gives the ball to the midfield so they can lay it on a plate for him
....and we only have "a)" at present.
(I considered Jags our player of the year 2 years ago and Moyes has always found defenders who can do a fantastic job of stopping us conceding, but he finds these 'Gems' cheap because they tend to be lacking in brains when on the ball)
I just don't see how you can play Yakubu and any 2 of our 3 'punt up the park' defenders at the same time.
99 Posted 11/08/2010 at 14:02:59
I guess we're in a win/win to be honest. Seems like if he goes Moyes is going to hold out for some proper money, if WHM dont have it we've got a Yak in the squad which cant hurt.
I'm with Kev Hudson also - put an arm around the little man and set him on the opposition. Imagine what he'd be like in a derby game! Bloody horrible!
100 Posted 11/08/2010 at 14:18:55
101 Posted 11/08/2010 at 14:34:26
Underused at spurs, but shown he is a good player.
Will score, but also has the ability to link up with the midfield. Crouch on the other hand does not. His link up play is woeful, while he may get the odd goal, we need more from a striker.
I dream of us bidding for Lukaku.
102 Posted 11/08/2010 at 14:29:24
I've always liked him. In an age where players have elevated vapid, monosyllabic answering into an art form, Bellamy tells it like it is.
Everton could do with someone who crosses the white line with a knife between their teeth...
103 Posted 11/08/2010 at 14:45:44
104 Posted 11/08/2010 at 14:58:53
I'd love to see a striker of Eduardo's flair playing off Arteta and co..
Wouldn't be too unhappy if Mike's suggestion of Bellamy was a goer either. Not a big fan of Pav though!
105 Posted 11/08/2010 at 15:05:28
Seems a bit paltry,doesn't it?
One thing baffles me: Why bid lower when £6 million has already been declined?
Is it their "understanding," that we're desperate to sell,or Yak's desperate to go,and therefore feel they have us over a barrel?
Feels odd this one.
106 Posted 11/08/2010 at 15:11:08
107 Posted 11/08/2010 at 15:14:35
Bellamy is a great player. Wrong age, high wages, but a great player. I don't buy into this 'he's a gobshite' talk. Of course he is, and so are 99% of prefessional football players. Bellamy is however, good quality gobshite.
Robbie Keane is also a good player who's had a bad couple of seasons. AT 30 not a Moyes signing, but a good player.
If we were to sign a stiker however, it is going to have to be player who has had a bad time of things recently, otherwise we wouldnt be able to afford them. So with that logic, might aswell keep Yakubu.
I'm neither for or against Yakubu going. He could get goals, me might continue his decline. Its a wait and see issue, as none of us have seen him in training we cant really give a valid view on how he will perform this season. Whoever replaced him would also be out-of-sorts to some extent.

He has one of the most proven scoring records in the league and has been getting over a horrible horrible injury, a genuine career threatener. I dont care if he doesnt track back much or run around like a headless AJ, if he gets back to his best and bangs in 20+ goals next season then I would be more than happy. In order for that to happen I think he needs a run of consecutive games. He is the kind of player who will score in runs, 10 in 15 straight games but if he plays 15 games in and out he may only get 5-8. The more you play him the more he will score. Despite that miss for Nigeria I would want a chance that fell in the 90th min to fall to him out of every player we have. And for all those mentioning that miss and calling for Landons return, rember Spurs away?

Sky have reported his record as 52 in 92 starts and the Echo are saying Wham have bid 7.5m.
I will admit though I did think is he finished after that miss.

we were starting to find our form a bit around the time we played Spurs. IMO the Yak was one of better player's in a very poor start. I've no way of knowing if he will be the player he was, I can only say the only thing he relies on is his instinct, so hopefully he will be the player he was for us. If he is then he's much better than some other's mentioned.

"Everything has a price. You want to get Yakubu for £1-2 million and they are quoting £8 million and that is far too much.
?They have to be more realistic. If they said £1-2m we might go back. We bid more at the start of the summer because we had more flexibility but, at this moment in time, having spent some of our money on other players we want him for £1-2m.?
What a ridiculous man.

What a completely derisory offer and what a cheap club he is turning West Ham into. I do feel sorry for their fans.
What sort of message is this to the player that West Ham has been hunting all Summer? "We want you but we think you are old and knackered and therefore not worth that much at all."
It is a real shame for Yak and for Everton as this could have worked out well. On the one hand Yak gets a fresh start, on the other hand we get to invest in a fresh face and perhaps younger striker and West Ham would hope that Grant can get the best out of the man he managed at Maccabi Haifa all those years ago.
Instead Sullivan reveals himself to be the cheap, nasty, disrespectful fucker that we all suspected him to be.

Yak is 27, not old, granted he had a poor season last year due to injury but it is a FACT that if he plays 30-40 games, you can bank on 20-25 goals. Look at his stats.
That horrible little fuckin hatchet harry midget pervert can stick of of his dildo's up his own arse for £1-2m.
I know wanking makes you blind but fuck me ..... the porn prince is fuckin delusional as well!!!
135 Posted 12/08/2010 at 10:24:31
And coming from a club that values Carlton Cole at £20m?!!
It actually borders on the absurd.
136 Posted 12/08/2010 at 14:06:58
They value the Yak at £1-2 million. Are they drunk?! I know he hasn't been on form for a while mainly due to an injury but a guy with his scoring record at £1-2 million?
I am absolutely glad we're not selling him now.
Does anyone know why West Ham would think such a ridiculous value for him? Is he on the last year of his contract or something?
