And what you say is generally a lot of crap.

It amuses me that some fans seem to actively encourage our most gifted player ever out of the club.

Charming as ever, Hrolf.

Just my opinion, no need to be so rude.

Not sure anyone posting on these pages will encourage Wilf, I doubt he scours the pages of holmesdale.net on a nightly basis.

The worst thing for me would be if Liverpool came in for him at say £80m. On the one hand I'd love to see what Wilf could do under Klopp, an incredible manager in my book. On the other hand, I really can't stand the bin dippers and they have the worst fans in the world.

yes i agree a fantastic manager , he managed to get 60 mill out of palace for Benteke and Sakho , but seriously wilf aint going anywhere. Better to be a big fish in a small pond and all that s***e.

 


oh yeah ,fcuk off brighton.

I just bumped into Wilf in a coffee shop in London. He laughed when I asked him was he leaving and said 'Not a chance'

I think it’s true personally and I also feel partly driven by the club. Wilf is soon to be 27 so this is the time we can receive a huge fee. Price will begin to drop at 28/29. We have to move on from Wilf and invest in 19-20 year old to take us forward.

It’s no coincidence Wilf was allowed to release an interview to the press about playing CL football and a week after the season ends, it comes out he wants to leave.

Sounds like we want business done early so we can prepare for next season.

I love Wilf but the club need to think about the next 10 years, not just the next two or three. Plus, wouldn’t we all want to see Wilf rip up the champions league and reach his potential. I know I would?

So Wilf isn't leaving a coffee shop. How does that contribute to the discussion

The price is somewhat irrelevant. What matters is what we do with the £££. THAT is my main reason for not wanting him to go. I don't trust us to spend wisely.

From Dom Fifield in the Guardian (pretty much exactly what the admins at Red & Blue News said - I'm sure Fifield is one of their very good, reliable sources some on here rubbished):

Crystal Palace may demand £100m to consider Wilfried Zaha sale
Palace sympathetic to Zaha’s wish to play in Champions League
Club not looking to sell and have not received any offers

Dominic Fifield

Crystal Palace are yet to receive any offers for Wilfried Zaha who, effectively for the third summer in succession, has made clear his preference would be to move to a Champions League-qualified club if an acceptable bid is lodged.

Zaha held informal talks this week with the Palace chairman Steve Parish, who enjoys a strong relationship with the youth-team graduate, in the wake of his most productive Premier League campaign and while he fell short of submitting a transfer request, reiterated his ambition to experience life involving Europe’s elite club competition.

The bond between club and player remains strong, with the Ivory Coast winger having made 285 appearances for Palace either side of a brief and unhappy stint at Manchester United since his debut more than nine years ago. Yet, while it is highly unlikely Zaha would agitate aggressively for a move, there has been no interest lodged formally as yet, and there remains the possibility the player will be priced off the market.

While Palace are sympathetic to the player’s wishes, they would seek a considerable fee before they would consider parting with their prized asset. The 26-year-old has ended the last two seasons privately expressing a desire to test himself at a higher level, only to be persuaded to sign a new five-year contract on each occasion. His deal is worth around £130,000 a week and extends to 2023.

The situation is further complicated by the reality United would be owed a considerable proportion of the fee as part of a sell-on agreement struck when the forward returned from Old Trafford on a permanent basis for a cut-price sum in early 2015. That, and the fact Zaha is so integral to Roy Hodgson’s team, means the club are likely to be persuaded to discuss a move only for a fee well in excess of the £80m recently mooted. Indeed, it could take a nine-figure offer to prompt Palace to consider a sale.

In April Zaha told the Daily Mail: “I have to experience the Champions League. I just need the opportunity, that’s it. And I’ll do the rest.”

There is a desire at Selhurst Park to reduce the wage bill – at £117m per annum, the ninth-highest in the division – with Palace having posted pre-tax losses of £35.5m for the 2017/18 campaign in their most recent accounts. That could limit spending if no acceptable offers are tabled for Zaha or Aaron Wan-Bissaka, the England Under-21 defender who enjoyed an eye-catching first full senior season. Palace have no desire to part with the right-back, who is not in their higher bracket of earners.

Any move to re-sign Michy Batshuayi on loan for a further season will hinge upon the outcome of Chelsea’s attempts to have a two-window transfer ban overturned. The club will sell Alexander Sørloth, who has spent the past six months on loan in Belgium with Gent, and are open to offers for Jaïro Riedewald, the former Ajax defender who played such a limited role this term. There have been talks with the captain, Luka Milivojevic, over a new deal but they have yet to reach agreement, while Julián Speroni, Jason Puncheon, Bakary Sako and Pape Souaré are to leave under freedom of contract.

I think you'll find Dom Fifield is very much "proper ITK". He's an excellent journalist, a Palace fan and has strong links within the club. See my previous post if you want to know the actual situation with Wilf.

You are missing the point.

No I'm not. The "reliable source" (Fifield) has written a piece outlining the situation with Wilf, the facts of which the admins I mentioned knew before it was published. They have good, reliable sources in the media and, as I said, are right about this kind of stuff much more often than not.
