15. Kurt Zouma

He can become a great CB for us and his in the box sliding tackles are the best i've seen. The only thing I would like to see him improve on is his composure on the ball and positioning. He seems really awkward when he has the ball at his feet and I don't think its due to a lack of technique but more mental confidence. Under a good coach he can work on this and his still young so I believe it will come in time as he matures.

Needs a top quality CB next to him to start off next season, we must build around Zouma in this area. I cannot see us getting much more from JT and think this season could be his last dance.

Stones, Varane, Marquinhos and so on, but do not fall short and scrape the barrel in this area again.

JT next season will be his last as a full time player imo. If we see him in 17/18 at all imo it will be in a player-coach capacity, unless something goes horribly wrong.

No Champions League football next season. Looking forward to the Papy-Happy combo in defence.

Zouma still needs a lot game time to improve his awareness and game smarts. He makes up for a lot of this thanks to his speed and athleticism (as stated above).

I like Zouma, he's young...he'll get there.

 

Anyone else think that 9 times out of 10 his sliding tackle today would have ended in the player continuing his run, tripping over Zooma and getting the penalty?  yikes....I blame the Scunthorpe forward for missing that one...shouldn't have jumped over him.

He is young, I know, but it seems that he cannot tackle in a way the ball stays in the play. Always clearing the ball away from the pitch, even in situations he can do much more. Not to mention his distribution. That will come with experience, though. But still frustrating when you chase the game and he clears it away, meaning another bunch of seconds wasted by the opponent.

 He's one of the worst players at playing from the back and struggles to keep composure when getting pressed, honestly don't know what you're watching if you think he hardly gives the ball away... 

He is a good defender, has pace and can tackle, a huge talent but i guarantee most members on this forum will agree with me when i say his passing/composure on the ball is dreadful. 

Do you think we should drop him till he gets older ?

He is only 19.. ..  who do you want playing instead of him ?
