Problem is the more he says the less any top club will want him, unless he plays out of his skin up to the January window I cant see any hope of the club even getting what was offered before.

TOP clubs don't want him, not even sure Everton OR Arsenal did either.

NOW, as you say, IF he did play out of his skin(team mates allowing), surely this will benefit US & I believe, he will still be here come the end of the season, for the very reason you've stated.

New agent, new tactics?

Wilf hasn't exactly created much this season so he should worry about his own form. That said. he looked classy against Spurs and was fouled every time he had the ball.

This with bells on.
Roy said himself, Wilf has no goals and no assists yet this season, I'm expecting that to change soon

Looks like he dodged a bullet by not signing for Everton. Marco Silva may not be around for much longer.

Everton are not a lot better then us squad wise have been for ages and seem unable to really improve on that front I doubt very much their fortune will change.

Of course, he stands out against Schlupp/Andros/Bakary/Ayew etc...anyone half decent would. But top 4? Nah. He's a way off the likes of De Bryne, Sterling, Hazard etc.

The players mentioned would not shine as brightly individually with us, players need to receive the ball and also have someone to give it to, Zaha will definitively be an asset to any of the top six, his only problem has been dealing with his emotions off the ball after contact ...will probably cost him any move due to it.

You're right. Football at large doesn't like emotion. In fact most PC ways prefer no emotion. We are fast becoming emotionless! There are happily a few exceptions.....Wilf and definitely myself!!

VAR should now be helping players from having to behave like us fans lol ..but it appears a bit hit and miss doesn't it, the really good players are able to express their emotions in ways to deceive the very best referees often without having to open their mouths! Zaha will without any doubt be taught these skills at a top club!!

I haven't heard the interview as I'm not prepared to pay to listen to Hopkin curling one out, but Sky has a couple of direct quotes that are not at odds with The Sun article:

"As much as I do on the pitch, I can't play in every position. I give 100 per cent, but there are 11 on the pitch and everyone needs to pull their weight".

[Link]

Are you sure that you weren't listening with the Zaha rose-tints on? He's not necessarily wrong, but it might be politic for him to keep such thoughts away from the media.

No, if you listen to the actual interview you will know that the quotes have been lifted and spun. I did, however, listen to it and instantly think this is going to be twisted and his wording could have definitely been better.

For the interview though, you could tell he isn't the kind of person that does many interviews as often a question would be asked and there would be a 30 second pause before an answer and they weren't always the most eloquent. I certainly don't think there was any malice in it but there was also an element of justifiable frustration that has probably be borne out from the lack of his summer move and playing with players that he is having to carry a fair amount.

He feels like a player on loan to me at the moment. Im looking forward to seeing the back of him.

be careful what you wish for...
