It wasn't a back heel at all.
Ball just broke fortuitously for PVA.

If an offer of £100m comes in ( which I truly doubt ) then I think Palace would sell.

And one day we will have to face life without Zaha.

If that's a worry, then the bigger one for me is this - do you trust the club to invest those funds effectively ?

Because I don't.

Like they did with the proceeds of Wan-Bissaka's sale you mean?

I am hoping that once Wilf has got his head around the fact that he will be with us for at least another 4 months he will start applying himself whole heartedly to the task ahead.

After all,if he is determined to go surely he can see that he'd only be reducing his appeal to other clubs by producing sub-standard performances and displaying a poor mental attitude.

If Wilf wants a move to a big club in January, he needs to play out of his skin until then. Otherwise, it'll just be more time-waster bids from Champions League wannabes. He needs to apply his best skills to achieve productive outcomes, game in, game out.

s*** performances won't get him the right move (top sides won't take a sulker), nor will 'quite good' ones (we'll almost certainly be in a relegation scrap if he's not on it).

Top sides already aren't interested in him IMO.

He likes being the big fish in a small pond and none of the top six wants to risk him not fitting in a different environment for the kinda money we want. He clearly didn't fit in at united, why would he now?

He's a lazy trainer and late to sessions etc isn't he? Hazard can get away with it, I doubt Wilf could at a mega club.

He's still the same guy. Works perfectly for us, really have my doubts he'd shine at a mega club. Pretty sure thats why no one is interested.

£100m you take the money all day long.

The major problem we have is we are completely inept in the transfer market..

How many below average players have we bought, or past it with injuries etc..

Respect to the owners for not over paying during the last window, but they came up with nothing. Totally inept. Shows a complete lack of understanding of how to conduct business at this level.

I recon they're a bit stunned at how shocking they got it wrong in the last few windows they're beyond nervous about s***ting all the money on crap again.

Our two biggest assets came from the academy...

INVEST IN YOUTH... We have so many work horses that'll do us proud. Sort the academy and get a whole load of highly rated kids in, path straight to the first team as the squad is so thin. Chelsea but without the (until now) impossibilty of first team football surely means we could attract talent.

Rant over. COYP

Wan Bissaka made a clean tackle on him but the ball fell to van Aanholt. But Zaha made the run into the box to help create the goal
Also for the other goal, Maguire was shifted too far over to help cover Zaha and could not recover. Every team knows he is the main threat and the rest of the team benefit from that (in theory)

Next window will be interesting. We have to find a replacement first, just like with AWB, Steve?

There's still mixed message on this subject from Parish which must be confusing for Zaha, in particular if the potential terms of his exit are not set out in contract.
In the interview which Parish gives he also refers to a possible scenario where Palace do very well and Zaha stays.
If he is to go, Parish also says, it has to be to the right club for Zaha (I.e at top club) and it also has to be the right deal for Palace.
Hodgson, on the other hand, gave an interview to Radio 5 where he said that the reason that Zaha wanted to join Everton was simply ‘Money,’ nothing about joining a top club.
We’re left ,on the evidence of this season so far, with a disillusioned player.
Best case situation now is that Zaha plays out of his skin to earn his move , but there must still be some doubt that a top club will come in for him or that such club will pay the money Palace require.
Worst case is that he continues to cut a distracted figure out of form and that the likes of Arsenal/Everton remain the only interested clubs at a discounted price.

Top spin by Parish. Zaha hasn’t got his head right yet, the summer wasn’t exemplary behaviour at all and this expectation he should be at a big club isn’t certain.

I can sympathise with Zaha as it can't be easy struggling through life on only £130,000 per week
