Bostock and Zaha - sliding doors in Football elevator

I read in the paper that the young midfielder John Bostock is being released by Spurs having not managed a first team appearance last season in the Premiership. A teenage prodigy at Palace he left for Spurs a few years back with much bitterness from Simon Jordan, the then Palace Chairman. It is a shock that he is still not much older than Wilfred Zaha, another Palace prodigy but one seemingly on the reverse trajectory, preparing to join Man U having already tasted a Wembley victory.
