The “will he won’t he ” debate over Kurt Zouma’s involvement against Watford tonight is underway.
At the end of a traumatic day for the club David Moyes has a very big decision to make and personally I don’t envy him one little bit.
Does he take the moralistic view and keep him out of the team as a punishment and in so doing maybe punish the team?
At the same time he has to consider whether the player is mentally right for a game after such a torturous day
Zoumas’s problems are entirely down to Zouma and most people probably stand on the side of animal rights rather than his position for tonight’s game.
The reality is of course that at some point, be it tonight or later, Zouma is going to have to face the anger of fans who are deeply upset by his behaviour.
Like, riding a bike the best thing to do when falling off is to get back on as quickly as possible and the same rule mat well apply here in the manager’s world.
Moyes tends to open surprise packets and tonight may be no different and it will come as no surprise to see Zouma in the squad at the very least.
