    One thing that needs to be considered with Zaha is how much of his improvement is the result of him fulfilling his potential and how much is down to him being their talisman who everything goes through.

    If our scouts/management believe it is down to him fulfilling his potential we should stump up the money now as his price will continue to rise.

    I'm not sure where a tricky winger fits in to our side though, I think we need a more creative CM if we really want to push on

    We've already got a player who's skilful, capable of excellent finishes, clumsy and hot and cold in Son. £30-35m for Zaha is insane. I know transfer fees are starting to sky rocket but for that sort of money you'd expect some form of consistency or a game changer. I think Zaha has something about him and is decent but he's more on a Bolasie level... match winner one day a crock of shit the next 3.

    I know we missed out on Burke but he's the sort of player we should be targeting... young, exciting, bundles of raw potential, on the cusp of breaking through meaning they're affordable. Sessegnon, Lopes, Brandt, Dolberg, El Ghazi, Klaassen are other examples.

    This is probably the biggest question facing the squad right now - how close are we to moving to a 343 formation on a regular basis? Tricky wingers would have to unseat Eriksen as the playmaker, or Alli as a shadow striker. But both play centrally in this formation.

    Maybe if we wanted a pacey striker to back up Kane...

    He hasn't been this season though. You just have to remember how quickly Ronaldo, Bale and others have turned their end product around to know that it's possible for players to come into their own after a few seasons playing top level football. I'm not saying Zaha is that good though, I'm just trying to give some balance here

    Apologies for the source. This story is lingering though. I'd be for it, 4 goals and 6 assists in 19 this season is good going for a struggling side. He's better than both Sissoko and Nkoudou, quick and two footed and has a lot of skill. Only thing is, we are bloated in that part of the pitch, something would have to give as Lamela, Son, Nkoudou and Sissoko are all vying for one spot as it as (when everyone's fit).

    If we're going to focus on the 3-4-3 shape though, where does he play? He could play more centrally off Kane i suspose.

    I don't think the 343 is going to be an outright first choice formation, I believe it will be used when necessary, as will the 4231 and even 433.

    That's not the evidence of the last two months. Playing 3 at the back has been our go to, even when our best players haven't been available

    What I got from your story:
    You were feeling lonely on your birthday so you thought you could make a friend with a waiter over your burnt meat. But the waiter was a douche so now you're taking it out on sissoko and n'koudou, in a zaha thread on sc.
    Does someone need a hug?

    For me, our AM's need to have a persistent goal threat. Zaha doesn't. Especially if we stick with 3-4-3.

    Seems he does though, so not so baffling as some may think.

    SSN reporting we're lining up a £25mil deadline day bid ... think they're source is the Express though so likely absolute bollocks lol We'll find out soon enough anyway.

    Tottenham are ready to splash the cash on Deadline Day with a £25m bid for Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha in the pipeline.
