What a load of bollocks.
This Everton team, not some mythical version in your head, was considerably better with him than without
His partnership with Keane, supported by Gana, Digne etc worked through a tough start and became an excellent core to the side. That was springboard to beating rivals for the top six in a superb run a few months ago.
Zouma's absence has forced us to play Mina and now we are shipping goals. Admittedly Gana has also gone and that is hurting us.
...if we had been told by Chelsea that Lampard wants to have a look at him before making a permanent decision and we could have first dibs on him in January if it wasn't working out there - would that have been enough for them to think "we'll go with what he have for now and hope we get Zouma in January"?
Just a hypothetical, and I know we were linked with a few other centre-halves, just wondering if they maybe didn't want to splash the cash elsewhere if Zouma might be available soonish?
