Such a strange signing Charles N'Zogbia has turned out to be. Must admit, I thought he wasn`t a bad replacement for Downing who as you know, left for Liverpool and has done so well since he played his face up for a move.
But our very own Charles N`Zogbia. What is up with him?!
It is almost impossible to judge any player on last years disaster, but he`s hardly shown the fighting spirit to make himself indispensible for Paul Lambert this season either has he?
He is one of our senior players, one of our best paid players and he offers exactly what at the moment?
Seems we have the troublesome Newcastle version of the player, not the decent player Wigan enjoyed.

Very poor for a player that cost over £10million isn`t it?
I know no one liked he who shall not be named, however he was let down by this player who he showed so much faith in and as said, this season, at the moment, seems no different.
We even had him tweeting that for the first time in his life he wasn`t happy playing football last February (see: N'Zogbia Says He Is Not Happy ) and our hearts bled for him. You know, poor old Zoggy, putting in no effort on the pitch and taking home a Kings ransom in wages. Just horrible, horrible times for the midfielder. In fact, if we weren`t all so selfish, we should have had a collection for him really.
So... not sure what the answer is really? He might well be off next summer if anyone fancies taking a chance on him, he is undoubtedly on his day a good player, but I`m not sure we`ve seen any of those days? It is obvious, unless Lambert can get something to click with him, that he will be yet another player we make a big loss on to get him away from Villa Park.
Has anyone got any hope that he might still come good for us?
