Our Snout in the Goodison Road chippy whispers a rumour of Cristian Zapata, born 30 September 1986, now a free agent after a season with Spanish Segunda Division outfit Villarreal in Catalonia. His agent has been spreading rumours that the Colombian international defender is on the move, possibly to us.
Zapata usually plays centre back, sometimes full back. He played in Italy for six years with Udinese in Serie A, 194 games and scored 5 goals. So far he's played 36 games and scored no goals in one year in Spain. He's also played 12 games for Colombia and scored no goals.
We've all got bad memories of EL Madrigal, Pierluigi Collina and a disallowed Big Dunc goal that kept us out of the Champions League in 2005. So when The Yellow Submarine sank into La Segunda Division we all made a little party.
Take this one with a large dose of salt and vinegar.
