Some good suggestions there but if you think Antonio is as good as Zaha, I'm guessing 15m wouldn't cut it

We're talking about Moyes here. He's just come as manager. Didn't get the wonderful displays Antonio put up in the last 2 years. Has only used the man as a center forward.
And Moyes is known for doing these sort of things. At Sunderland, he let Lens and Giaccherini go before the season started.
Didn't play Khazri, the team's best player the previous year, at all.
Sold van Aanholt in the winter, the league's left back with most assists.
Needless to say these were the guys who had kept Sunderland up the last 2 seasons, together with Borini and Vito Mannone. Sunderland went down bottom last.

Now Moyes is at West Ham. I can't wait to see what wonderful transfers he's going to make here!!! He already has it against Chicharito and Andre Ayew and is seeking a backup for Michail Antonio. Oh, Boy

Ive always love Palace, but you lot and many more have gone to a level of knowledge that I am lost at.
Its all to do with the internet in my view.
But whatever if you enjoy it then great.
Palace has been part of my life for many years and I'm proud of that.

Zaha is our star and he thrives at this level.
Where would he be at Barcelona say?

i dont know if your right or wrong

i do know that IMO wilf is more than good enough for a top club

if coutinho is worth £146m, then wilf is worth at least half of that.

£75m and i wont argue with him being sold

Actually, given that winning the league has been pretty much a procession the last 3 years and the top 6 look set to be same indefinitely how about 2 teams voted in as the best from the rest and an 8 team knock-out to determine champs

How do you class Leicesters winning the Premier a procession, they had never been anywhere near the top 6 for years, then won it from nowhere.

Mahrez and Vardy are better than Zaha at this point in time.

Schlupp also won the Premier League

Some of the players mentioned have been poor or average this season. Southampton fans seem ready to pack Tadic's bags saying he is a lazy waste of space. Arnautovic was being described as a massive waste of money until a return to form under Moyes. Keane has not performed as well as expected since his move and Vardy is not what he was.

Zaha has been consistently one of the best players on the pitch in nearly every game he's played this season, and has had a direct hand in a large share of our goals (directly or indirectly). For me he is definitely right up there and for entertainment alone he is worth more than any club could offer (unless Barcelona want to swap us Messi plus cash).

With a rational head, you'd say that, as a complete player, there are a few who are better than Wilf.

But I don't think there are many players, at any club in this league, who are as exciting as Wilf, and as enjoyable to watch.

It's also worth remembering how consistently he is putting in game changing contributions. Take out Southampton where I thought he was noticeably shattered, our recent games have included:

City: wins a pen which should've won us the game
Arsenal: assist for Townsend goal
Swansea: played in RLC to get the pen
Leicester: scored
Watford: set up both goals
Bournemouth: won a pen

That's not including how many times he's layed it on a plate for Benteke. I know we play in a way where everything runs through him, but how many other players in the league are creating, scoring, or influencing goals week in, week out? De Bruyne? Salah? Mahrez? There's not a lot.
