Jo to return

Jo is to return to Manchester City at the end of the season after Everton admitted they cannot afford to sign the Brazilian permanently.

"I don't see where we could even come close to getting the money they spent on him," said Moyes on the club's official website.

"But a loan has not been put to us or spoken about at all yet.

"It's something that, at the moment, we've not had any indication that they would have interest in. Obviously that means he will go back to Manchester City."


As well as he may have done on loan at Everton, I've not seen or heard any indication that Hughes now seems him in his long term plans, but maybe the past six months could herald a new start for a player who, undoubtedly, does have plenty of potential.

vote it up!

Well a fresh start as he obv does have talent or if Hughes really doesn't rate him send him back to CSKA Moscow in a swap deal for Zirkhov and just write off the odd 5M.
Bridge has been poor defending and going forward showing why Chelsea soon replaced him as first choice.

City Lady.... I am in awe, your analysis is bang on as well as the proposed solution.
Are you Joe Mercier in disguise ?
Thought I was the only one who saw Bridge as a liability throughout this season.
More please, what are your thoughts on Hughes tactical and motivational skills ?
