Yobo, did he jump or was he pushed?!

according to the echo, because Yobo pulled out of the Benfica game in the stadium of light, even though the physio said he was ok to play, and we had to play Hibbert at CB and got battered, Moyes has decided to bin off Yobo. Nothing would surprise me in football, but do we think this is accurate or not?

Dave Prentice: Stadium of Fright sealed Joseph Yobo exit
Sep 3 2010 by David Prentice, Liverpool Echo
Comments (5)Recommend FOR a man who made 259 Everton appearances, who enjoyed the distinction of being David Moyes’ first signing and who captained the first team as recently as last October, Joseph Yobo’s fall from grace has been both swift and dramatic.

But the writing has been on the wall since last autumn, ever since Yobo decided a head injury sustained before a match at Stoke meant he couldn’t board the plane for the trip to Benfica.

Physio Mick Rathbone pointedly said at the time: “Joseph’s injury was so, so minor, but if you do an injury like that the night before a game it doesn't give you a lot of time to recover.

“He’s gone off with the Nigerian squad as they’ve got a very important game against Mozambique on Sunday and I think he’ll be fit for that.”

He was – and David Moyes took note.

As a result of Yobo’s no-show in Portugal, Moyes was forced to play Tony Hibbert at centre-back and hand a baptism of fire to Seamus Coleman, out of position, at left-back.

The rest, of course, is very, very painful Goodison history.

Yobo made just nine starts after that, proving that hell hath no fury like a Scottish manager scorned.

If Joseph Yobo has played his last match for Everton, it’s a sad way for such a once trusted servant to go.

But it underlines once again Moyes’ desire for total dedication and unswerving loyalty to the Royal Blue cause.

Yobo’s Everton contract runs to 2014, and after his loan move to Fenerbahce this week he said: “I leave knowing there is always a reunion in the future.”

If I was Joseph, I wouldn’t be holding my breath.

Mate , with respect , neither .

It benefits both parties .

If it doesn't , he'll come back .

Thing is , he wasn't playing , WAS on decent money , and IS our most consistent foreign signing ever . Timmy will probably depose him of that particular throne , but the point remains , Joe Yobo is one of ours . Thus , deserves respect .

He needs to be playing and weve got 4/5 decent centre halves .

Just on a point of fact , and the good Mr. P's Employers have never been keen to let facts stand in the way of a good headline , but Yobo was out of the side WELL before that incident . If you go back , it was the emergence of Jags / Joe Lescott / Bainsey / Pip , unit , that did for Joe .

As I say , it doesn't fit into the general vibe of the piece , but , ho-hum .

Cheers Joey, thanks for the service, but time to move on. I'd rather see him playing somewhere than rotting on the bench. I hope it works out in Turkey.

It gets his wages off the books. This is the only fact, I think.

Prentice is just a mouthpiece for the Club. Do departing players generally get a good write up? Isn't there usually some sort of low key campaign to blacken their names?

Spot on.

So brave of Prentice to have a go at Yobo now he's a couple of thousands of miles away. Real snide's trick that.

Besides that, using Rathbone's words to hang Yobo out to dry with shows how ******* daft he is too: who could take those words seriously after he sent Gosling back out on the pitch with his leg hanging off?

Pushed.

But I can fully understand Moyes' reasons.


No player is bigger than EFC.

* Edit. Mick Rathbone's is not and WAS NOT the only medical practitioner at EFC Davek.

So bringing up that Gosling issue is a joke lad.

Rathbone would get the results of any Yobo hamstring scan's from someone else Davek. So it wouldn't of been Rathbone's opinion anyway it would have been a specialist's opinion given to Rathbone lad

On the day of the game "lad", he made a snap decision "lad" and it cost Gosling a long spell on crutches "lad".
