Yakety Yak

Comments (24)

I've got a little bit of gossip for you.

I work in film and TV and a mate of mine was just telling me that he interviewed Sven Goran Eriksson yesterday...

During the interview, he mentioned that he was going for dinner with David Moyes afterwards. When they were finished, he said he had to rush as he was off to sign a player.

So either the Yak is off or Sven has put in a bid for Fellaini, Rodwell, Baines and Arteta.

I heard that, "I'm having dinner with David Moyes and then I'm off to sign a player", is what he always tells his wives.

He must have been off to sign a free agent as the transfer window is still shut.

If I was manager of a football team I would drop hints like this all the time just to have some fun. I can't elaborate much further, I'm off to have dinner with Mourinho.

I really don't see what he'd gain by announcing his plans to a journo.

Ultimately, it doesn't really matter either way does it? Yak will be off somewhere in the summer for a random transfer figure that we can't even guess at, and we'd probably let it be next to nowt to get him off the wage bill.

David Moyes is his euphemism for Dirty Minge

Tony (8) or he could be one of the wandering wsag forum tribe (btw, your 6 post gave me my only laugh of the morning - not getting many laughs here in Sweden).

Was it just some kind of cruel torture on Moyes? Did Sven just eat in front of him making "mmmmm" noises, before finishing off with that remark?

I heard Moyes had to rush from his dinner as well as he was concluding a deal for Messi.

Why is it anyone who works 'in media' never tell anyone what they actually do?

@James Brand

The only reason I come on this site is to read Doddy.

If I wanted something serious to read I would try and find Kenwright's business manifesto...

I heard Sven took a doggy bag with him as Yak wanted a couple of pies & a side order of chips as a signing-on fee!

I will be sad when the Yak leaves.He is still one of my favourite players. He just got caught in a rut and perhaps just not getting the forward function that he really deserves.

It worked at one stage, then injured and new team formation just didn't suit him.

Sorry to see you go, Yak. :(

The last time I saw Yak play (for Leicester) he looked in great shape. Like someone had kept his head and added a new slimmer body ;)

I don't think he will be at Everton much longer. A shame, but numerous circumstances seems to have ended his time with us.

On the bright side, with Yak, Vaughan, Fellaini and Rodwell gone it will be like a new signing for us!

Oh :(

Ste Blunder (7) - You think Eric Myles gay? Can't see how but OK. Find a more clever way to express it though. This is ToffeeWeb.

Nothing to do with journos. Do you work with the internet in some way?
