No problem with his comments, he’s navigated umpteen seasons of relegation battles and I agree with him that he deserves a crack at winning something/playing in champs league.
I think it makes sense to do it this season whilst his star is still relatively bright and his ever increasing wobbly/frustrated attitude hasn’t yet fully reared its head.
Anyone saying ‘we pay him this much, he loves Palace, we’re not selling him, he’ll warm the bench somewhere else, he’s not good enough for top four’ etc, probably time to think about what he’s done for us (i.e 8ish seasons of excitement and having a player to lord over all other fans) and support him wherever he goes next.

He’ll need to find his form of last season and further because this season he wouldn’t make the match day 18 of a top 6 team let alone a starting place or an appearance as a sub.

I agree with everyone saying timing is probably about right.

Well I don’t know about you lot but I am a Crystal Palace supporter and I support the players playing for my club. All this BS about these players that have been “good servants” to our club and they deserve the chance to go elsewhere bla bla bla. They get paid very well for playing for the club I support and we pay for a lot of that and I probably earn in a year what they earn in two days!!!!!!!!!! If he wants to leave so be it but it doesn’t mean I have to be happy for him and I definitely won’t be supporting someone who doesn’t play for the CLUB I SUPPORT!!!!

Yep, gone, they’re gone. CPFC exists before and after Wilfried Zaha and if anything we’re starting to show we’re adapting to not being useless without him, even if it’s dull as fvck, and that’s before we replace him, which won’t be easy to get a good ‘out ball’ or ‘outlet’ player with our amateur scouting. All depends on our scouting and manager’ opinion then. Oh dear. Fingers crossed.

I have been saying privately for a while that Zaha would be gone at the end of the season, accordingly I have been pondering on possible replacements.

He would be far more suited to playing in a team which play more expansive football and I am sure he will enjoy that far more than playing for a team which adopts our tactics.

Wilf clearly loves the club and has directly or indirectly been involved in at least half our goals. Without him I think we'd be going down even though he has not reached his peak in many games. However, this season we have slowly closed up like an unloved v***** and it feels like something needs to change. Whether that is a new manager or new players remains to be seen. I would love Wilf to stay but he has cut a frustrated figure at times this season and I can't see him wanting to play another season like this one. It is possible of course that this is a power play and Wilf may be sending the message change the manager/tactics or I'm off.

It would obviously be a disappointment if he left but it’s probably inevitable. I wish players would stop using the CL as the reason though; Celtic play in it every year but there’s no queue of players wanting to sign for them.

some of these comments are out of order IMO, these are my thoughts on the situation.

im almost 40 and he is the best player i have ever seen play for palace

with better players around him .: meaning he cant be the sole focus of attention from opposition managers he will thrive in any team in the country

i will probably shed a little tear the last time i see him play for our great club

we must, must sign a replacement before he leaves, we simply cannot replace what wilf has, but we can sign a player who will compliment andros on the other side.

Zaha more than deserves to play at the very highest level of the game rather than the endless ,inevitable battle to avoid relegation, year in year out.

Every season Wilf says something that suggests that he wants to leave. He gets a pay rise and stays.

Does anyone see a pattern?

I also suspect that Wilf wants to gee up the board so they don't keep treading water as we have this season.

My honest opinion about Wilf is that he is as good a player as we have ever had. Unfortunately for him, he is not a Hazdard or a Mesi or a Ronaldo. He is not even a Raheem Stirling. He does not have the football brain to be among the greats.
If he moves to a big club, he will find out that he is just another player at that the highest level and will soon be sulking. He had better keep his ego and ambition under control and understand how lucky he is right now. He has already seen how big clubs treat you and I believe he does know that Palace is his best bet all the time they remain in the PL and move forward.


The people who are happy to see him leave clearly have no idea how hard it will be to replace him or just how reliant we have been on him in staying up.

Now Wilf, no Premier League.
