KC and JoJo

Would've made a great headline if we'd still had Kevin Campbell and, everyone's favourite lazy-eyed American, Jo-Max Moore on the books…well it was either that or 'Moyes gets a Brazilian' and I don't think anyone wants that mental image forced upon them!
Anyway, after much speculation, Everton have agreed to sign Brazilian
striker Jo on loan from
He will wear the number 11 shirt…or Sheedy's shirt as it should be known!
The Blues were tracking him in the summer and were trying to get him on loan from his then employers CSKA Moscow.
And he has been utter shite since he got there!
He has scored just one league goal, that during City's 6-0 rout of
But, he netted 30 goals in 50 appearances for CSKA and he can't be that bad as Moyes was after him in the summer and the Everton manager rarely gets it wrong.
And before anyone mentions Per friggin Kroldrup, that was several years ago and there's been more than a few good signings since then so knock it off!
Other stats are that he's only 21, is a proper Brazilian international
insomuch as he's actually been capped…twice…and his hair makes him look like he got dressed in a blizzard!
It's a bonus for Everton though as Moyes had stated late last week that he
didn't expect any new signings before the transfer deadline and, if the
player can capture any of his pre-Eastlands form, he'll be an asset!
Also, if he does make a positive impact during his loan spell, there's no
reason why we won't sign him permanently in the summer for a fraction of the £18 million that City paid.
They will want him off the books as Mark Hughes clearly doesn't see a place for him in the team and, given the money at their disposal, it's likely that they'd be willing to write off a large portion of the fee they paid for him!
And before everyone starts getting excited about seeing him on Wednesday night, he, somewhat inevitably, won't be featuring as he played the last 20 minutes of
But when he finally does pull on the blue shirt, let's just hope he works out better than the two other Brazilians that have flirted with careers at Everton.
Muller, who was to be Mike Walker's flagship signing, touched down and
fucked off within about half an hour after he realised that the British
government were in line for a large slice of his earnings.
Then there was Rodrigo, who Everton signed on a season long loan but
returned after one friendly match at
Surely he can't do much worse?!
