Just look at the fucking talent...to me, he's like a hybrid of le Gin and Bale. Have honestly always thought at the right club he could go up a level.
The skill is absolutely hanging out of him.

Could Poch improve him? How high is his ceiling with ability like that? IMO Even at 25 you can still have an awful lot of potential as a player.



If that was a YouTube vid of Malcolm (or random foreign player)
everyone on here would be creaming in their shorts about him

With Richarlison going for £50m that could well have knocked Zaha's asking price up to closer to the £70m mark.

Football has gone bonkers
50 million is the new 20 million.....bloody craziness but the TV deal reality.

Will we ever be able to sing about getting another player for 5 mill!?!

This is exactly what people need to realize. You can't go on what players cost a few years ago, hell even last year. Prices are going up and will likely only continue to go up. Serie A is about to get a cash infusion with American TV rights soon (may not be this year, but it's coming), too.

Fees are all apportioned and there is more money in the game, not forgetting they've already sold out the tickets for NWHL...sponsorship etc. We're at the big boys table, you'd expect something substantial, but I'd guess both those fees include add-on potentials etc.

I reckon we'll look back on Foyth being an absolute bargain when his time comes. All these deals flying about really does makes Dele look like MK Dons robbery. Our recruitment team did a wonderful job with him and I hope the same goes for Juan

Agree. Even Davison looks great value compared to Van Dick at Liverpool.

Question for anyone who can answer: would Zaha be classified as a home grown player due to living here yet he plays for Ivory Coast?

His instagram story makes for some interesting conspiracy theory reading right now, just posted a black screen with the words 'final straw' 20 minutes ago
