You may or may not be right, but most would be more convinced by a slightly more cogent argument.

Not really. Itís a scurrilous transfer rumour involving Wilf, and all of you are playing right into itís hands by worrying.

If itís factually true, then Iíll worry. But it isnít.

5 words - Itís a load of crap. And if all of you believe what some Sun scumbag journalist posted, then shame on you.

Why is it a load of crap?

Is Wilf so unambitious that he wants to stay with a club that's just lost it's other star player and looks set to struggle again for another season.

Or is it that Wilf is so in love with Selhurst Park and his adoring public that he will forgo any personal ambitions to play European football.

Why when the whole of the footballing world had stopped linking Wilf with every top club has this story suddenly appeared out of nowhere

It's fairly obvious to me that your so called "scumbag journalist" got the story from Wilf's agent who wished to put pressure on our board to either pay him a king's ransom or sell him to a top club.

It will be interesting to see if Wilf or his entourage issue a denial today. Somehow I doubt it and I also doubt whether Parish will deny the story either

Because it's early July, the World Cup is on and journalists still stuck in the UK have absolutely sod all to talk about.

It's not been a very active summer. They have pieces they need to write.

 


Employee of the month is a good example of how someone can be both a winner and a loser at the same time.

Sounds more like wishful thinking coupled with a bit of blind faith from someone with his head buried firmly in the sand.

I would love to be in a position to apologize to you in a week or so but somehow I doubt whether I will need to

I'd be very surprised if either did.

Last summer it was priority one to offer Zaha a new contract, smiling picture with Steve Parish in Spain, and Bob's your uncle. It's not been quite the same scenario this year, but you can't exactly blame the player if he wants to try his luck again on a bigger stage.

Apparently everyone has also forgotten that even if he doesn't like the offer that's in front of him it's open to the club to make another one.

I donít begrudge Wilf another move but if this story is true then the timing isnít great. As seems to be the norm at Palace, itís another pre season bombshell.

I actually doubt that this is about money. More likely Wilf can only see another season of firefighting ahead. And itís hard to see anything else at the moment.

Click bait story, is this the same journalist ( used in the loosest term ) that had Wilshire definitely signing for Fernerbache 2 weeks ago.
No direct quotes, just understands and believes.
I expect there is an element of truth that Zaha hasn't signed a new deal yet, but these negotiations always take time and are not generally played out in public.

I think also if Wilf wants to test himself against the top boys only champions league not international football is available to him and he wont get that here, One more season may see his value go up to Coutinho levels, so do all we can to keep him one more year.

Some articles have the ring of truth about them and some don't. To my mind this one does for the reasons that I've already stated.

People believe what they want to believe, some need more convincing.
