So you think against the big teams he wakes up on match day and decides he will try. Get a grip of yourself. Did you ever think to yourself that against the big teams he is not triple marked and has more space to actually play with more space?


I admit, I was being a little unkind. I'm probably more frustrated at the way Wilf has been used this season. It may just be me but Roy's 4-3-3 keeps Wilf pinned in on the left with too much defensive work to do and as you say 2/3 players marking him.

To my mind, the reason he was able to play better yesterday was that he seemed to have been given a freer role. I've said before, he shouldn't be kept in a strait-jacket on the left wing but allowed to have a free rein because it's far more difficult for 2/3 players to mark him in that scenario.

For a while now I have felt that Zaha in a freer role would prove more effective for the reasons you have stated.
If he was given more licence to roam and width provided on the left by the attacking PVA this would introduce a different dynamic.An attacking full back on the right with the wide man tucked in slightly could also prove effective.

I watched Brentford the other day and Benrahma was moved from his normal position down the left into a central role in the second half and he was able to get on the ball and make things happen for his team.

Because he's one of our we love him more but he isn't as good as we think he is. He wouldn't even get into Southamptons team who have a far better player than him in Redmond

I canít believe Iím having to write this, but just to clarify , Nathan Redmond is not a better player than Wilfried Zaha

I agree with think he will get more space to play his game in the BL and if he goes to Munich then that may help his other ambition to play in CL. The price as you rightly say is not going to anywhere near what was being offered last year, I can see price being more than 30-40 range at best due to his poor form this year!

Donít think Bayern would buy him but Dortmund on the other hand....

I think it's in everyone's interest that Zaha leaves in the forthcoming window. It's also entirely possible that all the speculation about his future has in some way unsettled the rest of the squad which could, in some way, explain our frequently less than stellar performance during the season. Just a hypothesis, mind.

Iíd have to disagree with you on that. He is our best player by a long stretch and he will be impossible for us to replace with a player close to his talent. What we need is some better players to take the pressure of him so every pass we try to play is not to him.

The Wilf of 3 to 4 years ago i agree with you but based on last 2 seasons he definitely is

The issue with Zaha, is he isn't being used properly.. do other clubs and managers know this, the good ones, the ones who research and care, do...

Is Wilf a gamble?? depends on the price. north of 40, that's a gamble... 30/35 is the going rate I would say.

A top club, bring wilf on with 30 to go, he can change the game.

Would he be the kind of signing for a club like wolves, Everton, even shef utd that want to reinforce that europa spot? Maybe so...

I can't see him going abroad and I can't see him staying in the uk to warm the bench or not win anything...

my hunch..... Chelsea or Arsenal for around 35 mil or a swap deal...

Parish should have sold last summer for 45 mil.

Parish would have been crucified if he accepted Arsenalís offer of £45 mil spread over about 7 transfer windows. The only offer we got for Zaha. While I said we should sell him because I thought heíd sulk or not apply himself fully in todayís player power game, we didnít get anywhere near the £60-65 mil I thought he was worth. I donít even think Everton put a bid in, including the rumoured £52 mil.

The real error is us never really addressing delivering results without him. Thatís caused this. If we had a threat through the middle we wouldnít constantly do the same thing out wide, needing Zaha to do it.

What you reckon Xaha will go for this summer? it won't be more than 45 million
