Moysie has to make awful Zouma Watford decision

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.

  1. The Club are damned either way. From an internal viewpoint, he cost the club a lot of money and potentially we stand to make more if we progress in the various competitions, but from the outside any action should not be based on financial matters, but morals and sensibilities and the money is irrelevant.
    There will no doubt be many rival support groups who will scream for his sacking just for the sheer hell of it, but equally there are many many animal lovers out there that cannot comprehend firstly the actions , then the crassness of filming it and then the moronic idiocy of putting it on social media!
    I do not envy the board’s choices about Zouma’s future.
    As a club we do not wish to be associated with cruelty be it animal or human, so that suggests we should sack him, but that is a huge huge call given our squad size and circumstances but can he survive crowd abuse for the next few years? Difficult times ahead
