The only official comment is that people should not get their hopes up as any deal is far from certain. Anything else should be treated as speculation only and people should not be assuming anything else is happening.

Not saying it isn't or that Davids won't be there today, just that it is not advisable to assume it will be the case because a newspaper says it.

If you were to take all the stories of transfers in all the papers over the course of a week, only a tiny fraction would have any truth in the details.

It is clear we have made contact and it may well be that Burley's advice to be cautious is motivated by a desire to keep the hype down, but my worry is that people will get frustrated over something that was never going to happen.

Hope it does personally, but I'm not going to worry about it one way or the other.

Great publicity for us and him.....but thats all it is publicity


Why would Davids or Palace want this publicity?


Have you seen our average home attendance? Anything that gets the town buzzing about Palace at the moment is welcome!

Yeah, signing him would boost our attendances and create a buzz around the club but I can't see how getting in the papers for apparently trying to sign a (retired) great player would have any effect.

I still hope we will sign him and believe there is a realistic chance. I just don't believe there would be any reason for Palace or Edgar Davids would eek out some publicity if they had no intention of doing a deal.

If this did happen I can see another Thomas Brolin situation? Didn't turn out to well then did it.
Appologies if this has already been mentioned but i didn't have time to read through all the pages of this thread.

 


Rachid Harkouks passport was lost in the post ......Honest.

To be fair though Davids still looks lean and fit, Brolin just looked like some blokes dad chugging around the park trying to play football.


 


Don't waste your time with jealousy. Sometimes your ahead, sometimes your behind, the race is long. But in the end it's only with yourself!!

I know what you are saying and I don't believe that this is for publicity reasons as such, although I think it might be a factor, but you only have to look at the fact this thread has generated just under 34,000 views in very little time. The BBS thread is over 50 pages and has a huge number of views too. If I was in a position of looking at how to generate interest, hype and excitement, this gives a pretty clear indication.

What, so we'd best not sign him just in case?

Yes, there's a chance it might not work out but any signing is a risk.

It's supposed to be a short term deal within our wage structure, it would surely boost shirt/merchandise sales, ticket sales, give everyone a lift, and he just happens to be the exact sort of player we are lacking!

Update

I've just spoken to the groundsman, theres plenty of media around the gates of the training ground, but no sign of ED yet - he's going to let me know if he spots him, and I'll post it here

 


As Danny Butterfield wheeled away, arms aloft in celebration of his third goal an expression of delight and astonishment on his face a man seated beside me in the stands turned to his young son and told him that he would remember this moment for the rest of his life. I will too.

Well just looked at Edgar David's Twitter page and his latest post about 13 hours ago is 'Stay Tuned.....', is this a sign of something, it could be related to his Street Soccer that he still does, it could be to do with us, but then it could be me reading into things and putting 2 and 2 together and making 5!!?? lol
