Does that not equally apply to you?

Not really, I am not that gullible.

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

Wilf is in a position to play hardball. Who accepts the first offer in those circumstances?
If we were to sell Wilf it would be the dumbest decision since let's invade Poland.

TBF I think the later decision to invade the Soviet Union was dumber, as was the decision to attack the USA.

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.

Exactly, and I cannot understand for the life of me why more effort was not made to keep Cabye.He will cost a kings ransom to replace like for like.

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


Edited by Midlands Eagle (07 Jul 2018 8.28am)

Spot on post. I am of the same opinion that no denial will be issued by any party. Christ Palace find it difficult to announce when players sign a new/extension to their contracts. Bizarre

Saying to the family, on August 5th 1945, "I've got an idea lets all go to Hiroshima for some sight seeing tomorrow" was probably a bit of a bad decision.

Wilf can hold the club to ransom because, let's face it, he is the most entertaining player we have had for decades and is also our key match winner. Although it would likely upset the apple cart, in my view you just pay him what he wants. The games when he was injured showed me what Palace without him would be like, and I didn't like it.


Is the story true? Possibly, but it has been embellished to encourage clicks/readers. At the moment we have a possible story about Wilf not agreeing to an improved contract. It doesn't seem that improbable, unlike the idea that he would move to Everton, or that they could afford him, or that he would move to Germany.

If, and it's a stomach churning if, Wilf asks for a move then I think we have to ask for insane money that would enable us to invest in the ground, the academy and still have 40-50 million to buy a couple of marquee signings. If it's Spurs we add 25% to the figure we wanted as a Levy tax.

How do you know more effort wasnít made to keep him? But what do you do? Offer 100k + a week for a 30 something who canít last 90 minutes, which I bet is around the amount heís getting in Dubai, or go for a younger replacement who would probably be on what he was on or maybe less? None of us know whatís in the pipeline and no one knows for sure that Zaha has turned down anything. Canít believe the reaction towards Parish when thereís no facts and none of us know anything about whatís going on behind the scenes.

He's got 4 years left on his contract so if he goes he goes on our terms. £50m+ and a suitable player replacement should do it. Cabaye is passed it, not international class anymore and looking for a lucrative final contract why would we keep him on exhorbitant wages and use him as an impact player.

This just says bored journalism, spread a few rumours and see what falls into place.
