Wants a move to Atletico Madrid so it can link up with Joao Felix!
Don't you mean CATletico Madrid?

It's idiotic, but I can't get that that exercised about it. I'd certainly play him tonight if I was the manager.

What's funny is some of the people beating the cruelty to animals drum will be racing to put their bets on in the Grand National come April.
This sort of thing pisses me off. So anyone who’s had a bet on a horse or eaten a burger can’t be annoyed?

Agree personally. Marcos Alonso still has a career ffs but Zouma's should end today? We had Randolphs Ex last week putting some very strong and nasty accusations at the club, it was barely mentioned by our fanbase but because theres video footage of this cat, that's the worse crime apparently. Also, anyone comparing Zouma in the same breath as Greenwood is missing a few brain cells FWIW.

As DL has said numerous times on this thread, accusations can't be talked about and this bloke has admitted the fact and there is video evidence

Should whack a steak down his Prada's and lock him in the Tiger enclosure at London zoo for 5 minutes or until he physically sh*ts himself, whichever comes first.

Purr-is Saint Germain may also try to make a late pounce! Could see him teaming up with Lion-el Messi!

I don't think Antonio set out to smash his car through a wall into a garden, it wasn't premeditated. I can't speak with any real knowledge about the Hartson incident as I wasn't there. But I expect it happened because tempers flared and maybe there was previous kneedle. I doubt he set off for work thinking I am going to kick Berkovic in the head, but you never know.

This was a premeditated act, not a single act, but three separate acts. One of which involved getting a child to pick up and restrain the cat so he could twat it. Defending the indefensible. The Zouma brothers are not worth my piss.
There is never an excuse for kicking someone in the head. “Tempers flared” is not an excuse for potentially giving someone permanent brain damage.

As for Antonio dressing as a snowman is the best way to control your car?

If a horse falls over in the National and injures itself, they literally get shot in the head.

If it pisses you off, it's only your own hypocrisy on the subject. Why are you bothered by a cat getting kicked but not a sport that involves horses getting shot? Have the same energy for both at least.

I don't want Zoumas career to be ended. He can go and play elsewhere, not a problem. I don't want him playing for us, 'tis all.

I am not saying there is no chance of redemption, but there needs to be a serious level of atonement. The reading of a PR department prepared statement, a 2 week wages fine and a 2 match suspension will not cut it.

There needs to be a sincere apology and many hours of voluntary work with an animal shelter or such like.

Perhaps a Netflix producer could spin it into a programme about the 'Contrition of Kurt Zouma' following his journey of education and redemption in the world of rescue pets and other animals. Any proceeds could go to a deserving animal welfare charity.

There is far worse crap on the box.

No it pisses me off, because you’re trying to belittle what Zouma has done. That simple and would be that simple for most. Trying to play it down by mentioning horse racing has f*** all to do with it.

Are you trolling or deliberately missing the point of premeditated acts of violence?

Not belittling anything, you didn't quote the part about me saying he should get a lengthy suspension? How is that belittling it?

Clearly this has touched a nerve, i'm merely saying about people saying "anyone who harms animals shouldn't be at our club". What they mean is "this opinion only applies to cats and dogs".

I'm pointing out the people in their ivory tower preaching they love all animals, some of them are hypocrites. Simple as that, not any deeper.

Peter Bonetti has unfollowed Kurt Zouma.

And Peter is dead.

Anyway back to the point, we have a West Ham player all over the press that will be investigated (imho) by the RSPCA for a video showing cruelty to a defenceless animal…..this isn’t going away anytime soon

Yep, I agree with all of that and haven't said anything differently.
