I would still think that our ambitions were to beat Colchester - albeit with a weaker team. That our second team is crap though should be of no surprise. Getting wheeled out for two games a season, I hardly blame them. I blame our lack of direction and purpose. We are making up the numbers and going nowhere. Eventually we will be relegated - whether or not this year or next - and we will have little to show for it. There has been the odd shock victory but no silverware. I say, why not compete for the League Cup? Surely, if it's such a Mickey mouse cup, then we would fit right in there.

Normally, but I'm glad we are out. We won't win it and we cannot afford tiredness or unnecessary injuries.

We will certainly be relegated very soon if we don't spend a wad of money. We are currently going through a difficult phase with a big wage, aging players and big clubs being promoted to the PL. The answer is to spend wisely with money we generate from sales.

AWB and eventual Zaha cash must be cleverly reinvested in the squad

This.

Haven't really been following the last few pages, but if it's true that 100m has been offered, we should bite their bloody hand off. We all (palace fans) think he's much better than he ACTUALLY is. His stats are okaaaay but not great for a prem forward player. And if we truly cared about him, we'd let him fulfil his potential elsewhere.

100m, I'll drive him there myself. I won't, cos I' m on the other side of the world. But you get me.

Without Zaha, we will absolutely be in the bottom 3 by January. Not only the goals he scores, but the goals he creates for others, there's no one on our team to replace that.

A PL team relying solely on Ayew, Benteke, Wickham, and Andros to score goals? It's laughable.

Ok, so would pay a huge fee to sign a striker in January? I seriously doubt it. And even if we were willing, who could we get who could single-handedly score enough goals in less than half a season to save us from relegation?

I'm sorry, I just can't imagine getting someone that prolific in January.

Let's face it, our roster has been mismanaged for years. Zaha has covered up the mess. When he's gone, the crap is going to hit the fan. Or is the plan to use the 150M once we're in the championship?

Well we're now 4 games in and he's scored/created nothing. The difference is last season his attitude was good and he wanted to be here. This season, he simply doesn't. Jog him on. Band aids are always better ripped off.

PS. You should refrain from words like 'absolutely'. Because it's not absolutely at all. It's your opinion. Perhaps a valid one, but an opinion none the less.

I'd agree with this. OK, it's not Strictly and you can't expect everyone to be grinning all the time, but at least when we had Bolaise playing he smiled a lot and looked like he was enjoying playing, even when he got fouled. Zaha looks as if he'd rather be anywhere else.

Also, as others have said, his stats aren't really that good. For all his skill and his hundreds of dribbles, a handful of assists and goals isn't that good. Often his final ball is woeful (although I do appreciate that the lack of players in the box doesn't help).

My god man. We are already crap and you want to sell our best player by a mile.

What sort of logic is that?

Zaha benefits himself by playing well. He was actually involved in our winning goal on Saturday. Did you spot that?

Christ, I know people are upset that he wants to leave, but he is still by far our best player on his day. People referring to his stats must have missed watching him play for us, given they have no comprehension of what he brings to the team beyond just goals and assists. He had a big hand in nearly every away victory last season and also won us 6/7 penalties, in addition to being the one player able to retain the ball when we break out from defence.


If he really is miserable to be at Palace and can't get over that then I agree it is probably time he moved on, but don't suddenly pretend he's not a great player, because he is. Personally I think he'll come back from the international break in a better mindset; the window will be shut and he can just concentrate on his football without distractions.

Apparently Neymar being sold to Barcelona, but only if PSG can bring in three players... gulp.

I'm sure Parish will be losing all his phones in the next few days.

Really? Who created PVA's winning goal against ManU?

And please don't tell me that anyone else on this team could have taken the ball, driven 3 MU defenders into the box in a panic to stop him, then laid it off back-heel to PVA.

Granted, it was a fortunate outcome for the PVA shot, but without Zaha, we'd struggle to cross midfield with this anemic offense.

Or how about Townsend's last goal against Bournemouth, when the Bournemouth defender tried to rugby tackle Zaha midfield, failed, and he took the ball all the way downfield into the box, drawing all the defenders again, and laid it off right at Townsend's feet for the goal?

Again, anyone else on our squad that could ever do that?

It's really hard to overstate how one dimensional we are. Zaha is our best scorer, dribbler, and passer. By far. It's not even close.

I agree he seems in a bad mood at the moment. He's still our one top player on a team of mediocrity. I wish that wasn't the case, but it is.

Was it a back heel?
I thought he fell over
