Manchester United’s Wilfried Zaha & a lack of responsibility 0

Wilfried Zaha has received a lot of coverage during Manchester United’s tour to the United States and a lot of it has been based around his lack of pre-season pitch-time.  Of course, there were similar questions a year ago and his first few months at Old Trafford were clouded in mystery and rumour - why(…)

Wlfried Zaha making more enemies at Manchester United 2

Football players collectively have a reputation for not being the smartest profession, and while that’s a bit of a generalisation there is always one of them ready to reaffirm the stereotype.

Cardiff is the slap that Manchester United’s Wilfried Zaha needs 0

It’s very rare for a Premier League side to spend a large sum of money on a player with nothing but Championship football on his CV, and that’s understandable.

David Moyes gets ripped in the press this morning for his handling of Wilfried Zaha, and there are some very strong words and accusations being aimed at the Manchester United manager.

Discussing West Ham’s Ravel Morrison and his mini-ruck with Wilfried Zaha 3

After his performance at White Hart Lane in his last Premier League appearance, everything that’s been written about Ravel Morrison has been universally positive - until last night.

Since Wilfried Zaha completed his move to Manchester United in the January transfer window, the press coverage of the young winger has mercifully faded away.

Unease over Roy Hodgson’s treatment of Wilfried Zaha 2

Roy Hodgson has called up Wilfried Zaha to the senior England squad, and has apparently convinced the brilliant young Crystal Palace forward to commit to the country’s side in the long term. However, his accompanying comments are worth a brief and disconcerting look. Hodgson remarked that “it is very simple for me: to be asked(…)
