Andrew Johnson - How Much?

Andrew Johnson - How Much?

The worst kept secret in football is almost ready to be announced as front page news, well probably back page.

Roy Hodgson`s pursuit of Andrew Johnson, the Everton forward, is almost at an end with Everton releasing the following statement,

'Everton can confirm that it has agreed an eight-figure sum with Fulham for the services of Andrew Johnson.

'This is subject to the player agreeing personal terms and negotiating a medical.'


It is believed that the eight figure fee is somewhere between £12 million and £13 million, thereby making Johnson our most expensive player in our history.

For someone who scored 22 goals in 74 appearances for Everton that represents an awful lot of money!

He's a very good player, but 12m is quite a lot.

Eddie Johnson will be behind Andy Johnson, Bobby Zamora and Erik Nevland in the pecking order!

he sure was better at Crystal Palace. I am still interested in what AJ can do. Maybe he will suit your club much better than the more forceful Everton. I always liked little speedy guys up front. Sometimes the hit it off real good, sometimes they are just small speedy guys.

Andrew Joyce...is that the moniker Putney that finally is unmasked. He was always welcome with our lot some 500m off. Not always because we agreed with him though.

Overpriced. That's more than we at Pompey paid for either Defoe or Crouch.

Its a lot of money, but credit again to M A-F for putting his hand in his pocket. Its a great transfer and a quality player at the club so no Fulham fan can be disappointed in this. As far as where does it leave Eddie Johnson? From what we've seen of him so far, which has frankly been shambolic, it leaves EJ on a flight back to the US!

he scored on average 11 goals a season at everton and thats from him playing out wide quite a bit. him + z-man x nevland= real depth and quality! something we have not had for some time. plus i think CeeJ might blossom under roy

Andy Johnson + Bobby Zamora. All I can say to you guys is WOW! This could be a good partnership. Hopefully you guys can do better this new season and not fight for relegation like the past 2 seasons. All the best Fulham. P/s: get rid of the yanks. It did us no good either. :)
