Zola Is Only Biding His Time
This article has been submitted by Hotshot C. I neither endorse nor reject the opinions expressed.
The saviour of Claret and Blue – Zola! I hear you shout. In the background are murmurs of discontent – is he for real?
Zola has been quoted as believing that West Ham can compete for Champions League football. I’m all for the cause but that’s sheer stupidity! The club nearly got into the Europa Cup via an extra place given thanks to one of the top six winning the FA Cup. There’s no guarantee that the same will happen this season, and furthermore Tottenham will have strengthened their cause as will Man City, Fulham, Aston Villa and Everton. That’s six teams fighting it out for two spots, 5th and 6th and, if we are brutally honest, we hardly have any cash to entice players, like Man city and to a lesser degree Tottenham, and unlike the other teams can’t currently offer European football.
I think like Tevez (and Mascherano) before him, Zola (and Clarke) are merely using West Ham as a shop window and acclimatization area before moving onto their real ambition of a bigger club. If Zola thinks he’s going to achieve greatness in a bankrupt club then he’s only kidding himself or the gullible supporters.
Enjoy the ride while you can, because the honeymoon’s not going to last long.
