Bye Joe

Comments (62)

Mixed feelings today with the departure of Joey Yobo. He gave us great service, but was allowed to go in search of more regular first-team football.

Who could forget the 'calamity' errors against the likes of Man Utd when he passed straight to Rooney? But then there were great moments, like some last-gasp tackling, and of course his goal against Chelsea.

But overall a great servant of 8 years, which is quite a long time these days. I wish him well in Fenerbahce.

Best of luck, Joe.

I'm actually a bit sad to see him go. Would have liked to see him battle for his place as I feel he is a quality centre half. Of course if he's genuinely fallen out of favour then there's probably not much point in him sticking around.All the best Joey

Short memories, he came to us when we were rock bottom and he was considered to be very decent defender. When others jumped ship he remained loyal to us when he could have moved. I still remember thinking I hope he doesn't he doesn't go. He's older now and I'd have liked to have kept him as insurance at the back. If we get an injury we'll be down to the bare bones.

Thank you Gerry Western. Couldn't agree more.

Joe Yobo is an international captain, has great pace and tackling ability - he made, what was it? Mistakes you could count on 1 hand in 8 years of service and he is called crap. The Jag has made the same type of errors also - being human. If you haven't got anything good to say about a loyal Blue then why say anything at all. Seriously.

Good Luck Yobo.. Yobo...Yobo!!

I wish Yobo all the best. Well said Ped also. Yobo had some cracking performances over the years. He sadly didn't quite ever realise his potential but is still a usual player. In fact I would say of the current CB's only Heitinga is better. Jagielka, Distin and Yobo are all about the same level if you ask me and Yobo has made less mistakes in his entire EFC career than Distin has in one season. Moyes seems to love Distin due to his size though so I can't say I blame Yobo for moving on.

He was a loyal servant of EFC and I wish him all the best.

Just can't understand how we can afford to send him out on loan. Sure his wages are off the bill, but could we not have sold him during the summer?

All we have been told all summer is that we are skint, then it appears a player is surplus and we wait til deadline day and send him on loan! Typical shit from us, weaken the squad as usual on transfer deadline day instead of strengthen it!

Charles, be's not any kind of abuse, it is the cold hard truth. His performances for a good 4 years have been shambolic and he should have been moved on much earlier. You will have to excuse me for not being all that sentimental about footballers who get paid £50k a week when they move to a new club.

He did a good job for us right at the start, but for too long players like Yobo - and there are a few left - have held us back.

As a bloke, I wish him all the very best. As a player, I am glad to see the back of him.

Yobo has had a poor couple of years by his standards, but I would rather we never signed Distin and kept Yobo. Yobo is certainly no worse than Distin and is younger. I don't understand why Distin is untouchable in our side. The days when we used to keep clean sheets are long gone, we always seem to concede with Distin in the side and yet Yobo is the one who many continue to slate.

Good look Joey! Had all the attributes but just made too many mistakes at the end of the day. I remember one time watching Match of the Day when Newcastle scored against us and they pointed out Yobo in the background tying his boot as they scored.

Flashes of greatness but too many hands over the face looking through my fingers moments also, from day 1 I always had an unsettling feeling of "oh no...." whenever he went for the ball which is perhaps unfair but there we go.

We've got enough cover in the position, shame we couldnt put the savings on his wages towards some new blood on the right.

Joey came in at the start of Moyes shaking up the club and he did us proud at the time. We'd been relying on the likes of Michael Ball, David Unsworth and Davie Weir at the time. Not bad players, don't get me wrong, but we needed to "make the next step up" if we were not only gonna stay in the Prem but be serious European challengers.

Cue a revolution, with Moyes bringing in the likes of Radzinski, Kilbane and Bent, and the likes of Ginola and Blomqvist sent packing. Oh, and a certain Master Rooney made an appearance...
A few years down the line and a few players have come and gone (including said Master Rooney) but Joey did his bit. Yes he screwed up (THAT back-pass to Shrek), but he did us proud too (the aformentioned goal against Chelsea). I just hope that he'll be regarded as a fine player in his day, but, like any relationship, sometimes it's time to part company when the job's done.

God bless ya Joey, you did us proud at the time. A warm welcome back at Goodison should always be guranteed :)

The thing with Joey, was his large periods of matches where he'd switch off. He almost seemed petrified of getting the ball if he was defending, and he just lump it in the stands or lump it to the oncoming players.

He was also rather prone to putting the ball into the back of his own net on more than several occasions.

I think the decision to send him packing was probably the right thing to do, if we want to play passing football rather than hoofing all the time. It's no coincidence that when we do play it on the deck not too many teams can compete with it, but as always there must be an end product. I don't believe we do have an end product. Saha hasn't scored in around 6 months now since he signed his contract.

Still I do wish Joey all the best, I think he got worse over the years, and he simply was not good enough for the demands of today's Premier League.

Tony, err, no it's not like that at all is it? They are first team players, Yobo was a bench warmer. Arteta would command a massive fee, as would Pienaar were he not in the last year of his contract... which Moyes has clearly stated he would let him see out as opposed to selling him now.

Why bother making such an utterly stupid 'point'. Yobo is for sale, we would have taken £4m for him and shook hands....with 4 years left on his contract.

The reason not one Premier League club made a serious offer is simple...they can see what I can see... that he's rubbish.

For some reason a lot of Evertonians seem to think that having big muscles, being able to run fast and jump high makes you a top Premier League player, well i'm sorry but it doesn't.

The lad was a hopeless defender and his composure and decision making were absolutely woeful.

I don't want to slag him off honestly, some of the nonsense being written here is ridiculous though. The reason he has been let go on loan is because that's all we could get for him... a loan. Because he's crap.

I remember his debut against Fulham and I was completely stunned by how good he was. He seemed to have everything back then, as well as an ability to bring the ball confidentely out of defence. Unfortunately for Yob, he seems to have gone backwards over the last couple of years, I still think he is a good defender, but he seems a bit soft for me and always needed a screamer ( a real Dave Watson type) playing alongside him to get the best out of him.

I think it was the Sporting game that really nailed it for him, shame really as I would love to have a player as good as him for back up, however can totally understand his reasons for leaving as he wants first team football at this stage of his career, and I for one wish him all the best.

"acceptable"? I'd say they are both "acceptable".

Which is more insightful and substantiated, my words, or yours?

Of course, as always, i'm wrong about Yobo. He's absolutely superb...just that no other Premier League managers can see it, obviously.

To think, some people honestly believed we beat Juventus to sign him and that Arsenal wanted him 2 years ago!!

That fact is that Joseph would have more chance of getting a move to Billy Smarts circus than either of those clubs.

Again though, nothing personal against him...he's just rubbish.

Whats more worrying to me is that Distin is considered a first choice CB. This is not an upgrade on Yobo at all. Distin was crap again Villa and the way he let Young just run and run at him was pathetic.

This is the Season on which Moyes must be judged and so far he has been poor. A pairing of Jagielka and Distin at CB will not keep a clean sheet all season and this needs addressing!

Just to clarify, I have nothing against Yobo at all and I wish him the best. Truly a dedicated Evertonian but not worth the wages anymore. It was a move that, unfortunately, had to be made for the betterment of the club.

C'mon, in no way can Yobo be described as a top class centre half. Yes he looked to have great potential when he first joined the club and the fact he had pace made him a decent enough partner for slow pokes Stubbs & Weir. However, he suffered from a loss of concentration at crucial times and often seemed to be day dreaming rather than remaining focused on his defensive duties. He needed an older head alongside him to talk him through games and make sure he didn't switch off at inopportune moments.

Whether he's any worse than Distin though is open to debate.

One of the few players I do have some sentimental thoughts about. He was a rock when he signed and stayed loyal to us when he had impressed enough to go elsewhere after the intial loan. My mind goes back to the day at Newcastle when Shearer eventually volleyed the winner... it was the only way he was going to beat us as Yobo repelled everything that came forward.

The fact is that we've moved forward as a club and a valiant last line of defence sort isn't the right fit, we need someone who can bring the ball out and play a bit. Good luck to him, though.

John Daley! (#43) exposes the good and bad points about Yobo quite nicely. He had pace to burn in his prime, but his reading of the game was (and I hate to say this) always a bit suspect. Stubbs and Weir were never the quickest, but they could read what was coming at them and did what was necessary. Yobo never had that.

Great Everton teams were built around central defenders who could READ the game (Rats, Watson et al), and if they had a bit of pace that was a bonus. Jags has got it, Johnny H potentially has it, as well as Duffy, but we'll never get to former heights unless we have that kind of player ruling the roost in the back 4.

Back that up with a goalkeeper who doesn't give a shit, can organise his defense AND is a phenomenal shot stopper (and can catch a cross or two) - and we're there (does Big Nev have a son?!)

Jokeynoo, Yobo didn't go to a PL team because we wouldn't let him. I can only assume that the Turkish side had the funds whereas West Ham will have been dicking us around again with the valuation and terms of payment.

I've been trying to get my head round it. I'm actually with Ciaran, Yobo is as good as Jagielka and Neil's first comment could easily be applied to Jags as well.

Moyes would have been far better off selling Jagielka to Arsenal for £14 million then actually addressing the real problems in our team. Letting Yobo go pretty much on a free and not raising any funds for buying a striker and a right winger means we are now looking at a top 10 finish rather than a top 4. If Everton have a buy to sell policy then Moyes needs to learn to wheel and deal better. now all we're left with is a team that can't score and has no balance.

Sad the lad didn't get to say farewell at Goodison, he's put in a great shift for us over the years and it would have been good for us to let him know he was appreciated here over the last decade. Errors and storming headers. We've had twats like Barmby, AvdM and Bilic in our ranks, Yobo wasn't like that. I suppose he was one of our high earners a few years ago so that might have caused problems with players getting improved deals.

Some storming performances and don't see the sense in a 1yr loan deal. Yobo is no worse than any of our other defenders, we mention his blunders, but he pulled our old guard backline Stubbs/Weir out of many a bad situation over the years. And as for error prone... Jags, Heitinger, Distin just as bad. Ah well... Best of luck Joey, hope you'll get to play at Goodison again someday.

I honestly wonder if some people watch the same game sometimes to come up with such polorised opinions on the same subject.

Joeseph Yobo was certainly NOT a "load of crap" he was absolutly immense when he came here and while he may not have fulfilled his immense potential I think he is certainlty a top quality centre half. I rate him similar to Jags and Heitinga and above Distin. He has great pace, could tackle, is strong and won more than his share of headers. He seemed to lose the ability to bring the ball out of defence after a while and used the centre halfs get out of jail free card by hoofing if more and more. That is my biggest critacism of him. I don't think his mistakes were that many, Shrek being the obvious one. Name another CB who hasn't made mistakes that cost goals, Vidic, Terry, Carragher, Jags. All regarded as some of the best CB around and all have made high profile errors. (For the recored I think Carragher is shite, but never the less he is "regarded" as a good CB).

He has given 8 years loyal service and maybe, just maybe he has gone on loan for games to do him a favour. Jags, Distin, Heitinga all more than capable with Duffy and Mustaphi as back up, they may be given a chance.

Good luck Joe, if you are back here next season I will certianly welcome it. BK may herald it as "being like a new signing!"

I'm sick of the guff that gets parroted time and again about Yobo's "frequent" mistakes.

Yes he's made a few gaffes, but then how many blunders has Jags, Baines, Stubbs (still have nightmares about some of his, he simply COULD NOT judge the bounce on a long ball), Neville, Weir, Naysmith, or Hibbert made under Moyes' reign? (I don't include the new boys, they haven't had enough time to gain a bad reputation yet).

Answer: roughly the same percentage per match.

If he was anywhere near as good as Jagielka, teams would be queuing around the block for him. They aren't, none were...we couldn't agree a fee so we have had to settle for a loan...which is of little benefit to us given he has 4 years left on his deal and will be 30 when he returns.

I don't need to justify it, you people are plain wrong...and the facts spell that out clearly.

Birmingham have money, Stoke have money..even Sunderland, Wigan etc. None of them wanted Joseph Yobo though...and for good reason.

Feel free to keep deluding yourselves though...he's absolutely boss, i'm sure Real are just biding their time.

Neil Steele - someone needs to explain the difference between perceptions and facts to you mate. I don't see an actual fact anywhere in your post, just a bunch of opinions.
