If you look at our game v Bournemouth where it all came together, we have built a squad that is really dynamic. We have had so many other home games that should have gone like this before Batshuayi arrived.
Coming to Selhurst in this modern game has become a real pleasure. But the truth is that Wilf plays a big part in all our Hope value. Roy has moulded us into a very exciting prospect.
For me, it would be a great shame not to keep this powerful energy together for at least one more season just to see what we can now achieve. Modern football wins when you can build a real team. We seem to have done just that.
I really hope we manage to hold on to our stars. To break up this squad with where we are now would be literally tragic.

If we keep Wilf and add a few then maybe we can both get what we want, not top four obviously but European football is possible.
The accounts are irrelevant, I expect 90% of the premier league love beyond their means. It was one seasons accounts (Iím sure we have made money since we have been promoted), we sure as hell wonít be posting a profit if we end up in the championship.

Only someone not funding a near £670k a week loss (which will have increased since the last accounts) would say that. Our wages to income percentage is one of the highest in the PL, over £40m in defered transfer fees fell due in the last financial year and mathday income has effectively peaked, unlesss and until the we are able to increase our attendance capacity. The only substantial profit we've made in the PL resulted from the sale of Bolasie; no sales equals no profits:

And no, "90%" of PL clubs do not make losses:

The sensible thing to do would be to get it done..by a deadline of first couple weeks of July, or whenever pre season starts, the coaching staff then have an opportunity to work and plan new strategies without him,and time to find replacements.

If you want him stump up the required fee before pre season, if not don't bother.

..that's him off in the last hour on the last day of the window then..therefore scuppering our new strategy and hope of getting replacements.

Imo the window should be from season end to 2 weeks of pre season..our chairman is no advocate of that though.

Wilf going towards end of window is likely, so the other option is to plow ahead with strategies in pre season with out him.

Would be prudent for wilf and his prospective new employer to have a pre season together, so they can get the best out of each other.

*I don't want him to go, but if he does then i would rather was a success wherever goes, because otherwise it would be a waste and a shame him leaving in the first place.

I just hope that behind closed doors Parish, Hodgson, Zaha and his agent are all being honest with each other. They need to make a decision even if they're not public about it. If Zaha is desperate to leave then Parish has to decide (hopefully after conversation with Roy) a) if he'll sanction it, and b) what fee is the minimum they would accept. It would then be down to the agent to try and find a buyer at that price if Parish does agree to a sale. You would hope that Steve would also set a deadline for completion eg sale completed by 30th June or no sale.


I love Zaha but he was rewarded with the biggest salary in the club's history only last year. If he does want to go I hope accepts the clubs position if either it decides not to sell or asks a fee which no one meets. Fortunately I think he has enough respect and love for the club that he would unlikely risk souring his relationship with the fans by publicly showing any agitation for a move. Maybe with AFCON this summer he will be too distracted anyway (crosses fingers)

What are you talking about. Palace at home is as boring as it gets.

The Bournemouth match was exciting because Roy let off the shackles because there was no risk. For 17-18 matches there is and itís cautiously boring. Roy may be right to do that but itís how the football is.

What I love is the press and all these c***s making out like we're holding Zaha hostage for an unreasonable amount of money. Don't remember the same tears when Barcelona well overpaid for a midget from Liverpool, but hey ho. Seems only the top 6 can set prices whilst the rest of us paupers have to be grateful for whatever we're offered!

ĎOnly someone not funding a lossí.....you are right, football finances are a complete mystery to me. I run a small business and if my wage bill goes over 40% of turnover then I know Iím in bother!
Since we returned to the premier league we have made profits some seasons, I remember a few years ago we posted a profit of more than 20 million.
I also donít have the benefit of having share holders that have personal wealth of 3 billion (Josh Harris). Football finances are all smoke and mirrors with many clubs owners finding creative ways of financing their spending.
If we sell our best players to turn a profit and are then relegated we will have real problems.

We turned a profit the year you're talking about because we sold Yala.
We will have even more problems if we were to end up in administration again further down the line from irresponsible spending.
Our owners cant just dump money in as we then breach FFP.
Our infrastructure is running at its limit and until we have a larger ground, it wont change. The only way we can essentially fund "decent sized" transfers is by player sales.
Under Big Sam we spent a good few quid in the Jan window, and due to the small amount of money we make as a business, its taken literally years to recover from that window.
Im the last person that wants Zaha to leave, I was there when he made his debut, and i was there when he made it again a few years ago and i hope i get to see him have a testimonial one day.

Our losses are being funded mostly by loans from the three major shareholders which may well be turned into further shares at some point, which is how The Penguin props up Brighton. But, as RyWa rightly points out, the investors can't breach FFP.
