    Sir Alex signed him and Poch (apparently) wanted him. Some pretty good judges rate him.

    Storming success he was at United too. He'd be a very expensive benchwarmer, money that could be so much better spent.

    This. He's a good player but not good enough for our first team. If we were City then fine, but he'd be a very expensive sub (for Poch to bring on in the 85th minute).

    A significant upgrade on Llorente, Moura and Lamela. He could cover all three front positions.

    He's not a striker and he'd be a massive downgrade on the other two.

    Yeah judge the whole team for the whole season based on "tonight's display".

    We know we have to improve on llotente.

    Im a fan of Zaha, and Id like him in our team.

    BUT...

    ...This is really just knee jerk flimflam due to injury/international football. It happens after every loss.

    The only thing evident after last night is that after a season of massive injury compromises we are down to the bare bones - for now.

    In a month we'll have everyone back and then itll be a case of "Well where is Zaha supposed to fit then?!"

    We have to improve Lamela as well.

    For me lamela has his place, I feel like he is the sort of player who offers great value to the squad - but Im far from convinced he has a long term future in the first team.

    Ottawa, actually.
    Might as well spend it on something st this point - better-spent seems like an excuse to not spend at all.

    And Zaha's a good player. I'm not sold on him as a signing, but he is better than Llorente, Lamela and Moura, imo. He's stronger and faster than them all, for one. And he's s much better dribbler than Lamela or Moura - enough to make him a more dangerous player overall, albeit in a worse team.

    All academic, though.

    I’ve always thought he would give us a different option in the attacking options but the price and wages would be prohibitive given he might not be a regular starter, but he was very quiet yesterday, Foyth handled him really well I thought.

    When anywhere near fit Lamela is superior.

    Yes, I am sober!

    Hasnt had the best of seasons so far. I think the pressure of being the only player of note they have is weighing on him.

    Injuries have left them "bare bones" all season, and its down to him to make a difference - while being tripple marked at all times...

    He is one of those who I think would flourish in a better team.
