According to some papers Zouma will be allowed to leave on loan. If we can't sign Sakho then he would be more then capable to replace him!

Would be a very good loan option, but we really must try and get a buy option inserted.

If we could it might make the loan more expensive. Also depends if they see him as a future player, which I'm not sure they do right now otherwise they would use him more, especially in a back 3.

Problem we have is the manager situation, makes it so much harder to get players in at the moment. Watching Begovic slip under our radar is pretty annoying as he could have been our number 1 for years.

Again, BBC transfer gossip has Zouma being linked with a loan move out.

A more than able second choice if we can't secure Sakho.

Zouma and Sakho pairing would be incredible. Though I really can't see us signing both of them unless we are going to sell one of Dann, Tomkins, Kelly and Damo.
As much as I like and respect Damo for what he has done for the club his new deal does seem an odd decision.

ForzaPalace
05-07-2017, 09:14 AM
He's always been pally with Parish. Hence why it got done when we had no manager. If someone came in for Dann now I'd sell, he seems to have regressed.

SP likes to have certain players about the place, Jules and Damo. Jules is a great role model to young players and although Damo is just past it as a premier player he knows a lot about fitness so could help on that side. However we need to be having more strength in depth and look at fitness and injury from last season, hence the big worries about our current centre halves. Ward was a different player alongside Sakho.

They all were at the back. He removed the thinking element from their game by simply telling them what to do and where to go every minute he was on the pitch. He made Kelly look good. That takes some doing.

Think a lot of people don't see the simple advantage of having a player who finds a teammate with the ball either.

If a defender has the ball 30 times in a game then a 20% improvement in pass completion means defending 6 times less than you would have done.

Not only did we defend better when Sakho played but we also had to defend less!

I'm still worried that people think PVA is a good defender.

His pace gets him out of a lot of trouble defensively, he was one of the few full backs to keep Wilf at bay when he was at Sunderland.

Allardyce is one of the best managers around defensively, he wouldn't have paid £14M having worked with PVA closely if he didn't feel he's upto it.

PVA will thrive further under FDB.

But Dann surely would want to leave anyway if on the bench. A year ago people were (mistakenly I thought) touting him for England and Captain. A reserve can't be on his list right now. A move to a promoted or bottom half club for sure.

You could probably look at any player and they will have history similar to that, nothing special.

If anything I just hope we can learn from our mistake with Sakho and hopefully include a fee that we can buy him for, if we really are going for him. Him and Sakho could be a massive CB partnership for years with us! Doubt he would break into the Chelsea team and they are constantly buying more, Luiz last summer, Rudiger this summer.

Zouma is named after Kurt Sloane, Jean-Claude Van Damme's character in the 1989 film Kickboxer, while his middle name Happy reflects an African tradition of using positive words as middle names.

That's because they stock pile them and it's the only way to keep them all happy by playing. IMO, no team should be able to loan out more than four players. That would stop the stock piling of talented youngsters and make a more level playing field for other teams to compete for them. :p
