re: January 2013 Transfer Window (Soon to be featuring Crazy Jim & Sexy Natalie)
He's being signed as a replacement to Nani, who’ll almost surely be gone in the summer, barring any miraculous return to his best.
Zaha is a similar sort of player, very spectacular rather than consistent at the minute. His raw ability is insanely good, guy can be anything he wants to be. My guess is Ferguson believes he can develop the consistency Nani never did.
If we’re loaning him back that’s fair enough. He’s involved in a competitive division and they’re looking for promotion. That experience can only be good for him. I wouldn’t actually mind loaning out a few more players to sweeten the deal. Powell maybe? Get them playing together too.
