Fulham to buy Jo?

After being linked only a few days ago with a loan deal for Manchester City striker Jo, it now appears (according to the BBC gossip page) that Roy is now weighing up an 8 million pound offer for the Brazilian.

Personally, I think he would be a good signing but I really cannot see an 8 million bid being enough which means this is probably just more idle, close season gossip....

Would rather a loan deal with a possible permanent switch if he produces, but I agree that 8m seems low. Of course, I don't think Hughes wants him. Who knows.

He only scores at goodison, so should help your record up here.

barn door and hit are a few words that spring to mind - leave well alone!

what little i saw of him i liked... but he did seem a bit inconsistent...

The problem with Joao is that people seem to want to play him out of position. They see a tall young man and assume he's a centre forward. Basically he isn't. He is a very good second striker, as he proved when partnering upfront with Wagner Love in Russia. He is very good at running onto through balls along the ground rather than in the air. Reminds me of Thierry Henry when he does that. Hughes tried him as a lone target man so of course it didn't work. He really isn't that sort of player. Quite a few City fans feel he wasn't given a real chance because he didn't get a run in his favoured position. On the other hand some fans went off him because he wasn't the centre forward they wanted. There is a question mark about whether he is suited to the physical side of the English Premiership, but I guess that is heavily affected by what position he is played in as well.

Well, if that's the case, then I'm not sure what we'd do with him either. Zamora is the only one we have capable of holding the ball and allowing Jo to run onto it, and that would mean that Andy Johnson goes to the bench. Or, we play three strikers, which I can't imagine Roy doing as he bases everything on defense and possession.
