We hear that Joleon Lescott has been dropped for Everton’s Europa League qualifier against Sigma Olomouc on Thursday.
David Moyes said of Lescott:
“His attitude in the past few days has been poor and for that reason I won’t include him.
“I’ve always thought he was a good lad. But I think he has not only let himself down but his team-mates, too.”

Hmm, Moyes playing hardball and quite right too. I’ve been disappointed with Lescott’s apparent sulking over his club’s refusal to accept his transfer request, but these days, when a star player wants to walk, he walks.
But at least if Lescott does end up at Man City, Moyes isn’t letting him go quietly.

    Fair play from Moyes, the lads clearly shown that he wants out and had a luacklustre performance against Arsenal, to justify himself not wanting to be there. I always thought Lescott was a nice lad too, but I was obviously wrong as well, I wouldn’t be suprised if he played poorly on purpose to try and force Moyes to sell him. It is a disgrace that a football player who is on thousands a week should not play because he doesn’t feel right in the head. He has simply had his head turned by money. If I was Moyes I would keep him there and when the transfer window is over tell him he can’t go anywhere, so he can either sulk and get docked wages or play.

    If he’s asked to leave, and Citeh are offering a good whack, then Moyes is an idiot to keep him. He’s not even that good. £10m would be enough to replace him easily.
