Why consult with Zola?
It gets madder and madder - unless Zola is on his way out of course. The revelation that Gianfranco was not told that his entire squad, apart from Parker, is available for transfer, nor that we had bid for Dorrans, is nothing short of surreal. Who exactly is deciding which players to target and what is the criteria? Is it a case of Karren Brady saying, "I fancy that Dorrans"?
Zola's position is clearly untenable. Sullivan is doing everything he can to force Zola into resigning. Some have argued that Sullivan was simply saying every player has his price, except Parker of course, but Zola has not read it that way. He has taken Sullivan at his word.
It seems we are into a game of chess here. Zola probably wants to stay and Sullivan obviously wants him out. Is Avram Grant recommending players? He could be brought in as Technical Director over Zola's head if Sullivan's tactics don't work.
How motivated are Zola and the players going to be on Sunday now? Fortunately the result doesn't matter to Fulham either! Still, if our team are in the shop window, where better than at Fulham given the connection with Harrods?
