can't have helped having to have to switch sides and have a revolving door CB pairing alongside him, one of whom is pretty much rubbish...(and I don't mean Dawson)

Back to the football - he’s been solid as a rock of late. If he and Dawson had better fullbacks we’d be conceding very few goals.

He was very good Saturday, agree. If he, along with Dawson, hadn't been on their game we would likely have lost that game

Has Zouma lived up to expectations so far?

Please note, this merely a question and I’m not casting any opinion, I’m just interested as to what others think.
Yes he has.

Another towering performance. Arguably the best player in the team at the moment.

Being cancelled has been good for him football wise, maybe it has refocused the mind (losing large sponsorship contracts can do that)

Yeah, no doubt he's responded very well. Hasn't let it drag him down, he's just improved his focus and concentrated on playing as well as possible.

People seem to have completely forgotten are instead praising his performance.

Had a look online and even other club's fans are saying he's a monster.

What are people supposed to do? Vilify him for life? He's been punished, fined 2 weeks wages (the most allowed), faced world wide condemnation and lost a lot of money via sponsorships. Time to move on.

I was making a joke that the people referring to him as a monster due to what happened were referring to him as a monster because of his performance today.

Fair enough, I missed that completely. I read it as we shouldn't be praising him because he IS a monster. Apologies (though I bet somewhere in the Twitter-sphere that point is being made)
