Once upon a time, Andy Johnson was the 17th President of the United States. As we all know, he jacked that in ages ago, and he’s now a professional footballer with Everton, who – somewhat strangely – is being trailed by a veritable carousel of suitors.
When AJ was at Crystal Palace his goal-every-other-game haul was pretty spiffy, tempting Toffees boss Davie Moyes to nab him. Throughout his time at Goodison, he has been the personification of perpetual motion. Unfortunately, though he works like a shirehorse, he seems to have forgotten how to score. This hasn’t stopped a who’s who of mediocre Premier League clubs having a hearty sniff around AJ.
Wigan manager Steve Bruce is ready to smash the club’s transfer record with a £8million bid for Everton striker Andy Johnson.

So what makes all these clubs think that they can turn AJ back into a goal machine?
