A guy I know through work, who know's Wilf's family, told me the day before the Everton game that Wilf wanted away, was very upset & his heart was not in playing for palace any more. Sadly the performances this season back up what was said to me. Would he be picked, on form, if his name was not Wilf? It looks like a parting of the ways is inevitable now & the sooner the better for all concerned. It will be a sad day but the club is bigger than one player, how ever good he may be.

Yeah , I agree with you mate but i just cant see any club coming in with a big enough bid to persuade Mr Parrish to let him go and on his current form i cant see any club offering over 30 million for him. kind of a catch 22 . Wilf should be playing his best to persuade club to come in with big bids . Even if we got 30-40 mill for him i wouldnt trust Mr Parrish to invest it in the squad .

 


oh yeah ,fcuk off brighton.

Thing is, Zaha's finishing isn't exactly brilliant. For all those memorable goals there are a lot of situations he doesn't convert.

Very, very weak foot, can't take a powerful shot without pirouetting to get his body weight behind it thus losing his balance.

So if Wilf goes, what will our transfer strategy be? HoL is talking about 70m. Suppose we got something approaching that, how do we spend it to reconstruct a squad without Wilf? And is the AWB money still in the kitty - bring our possible spend to 100m-120m? Are we confident that CPFC knows how to work the transfer market to bring in the top-line players we would need to ensure we stay up? Is anyone confident that this will all turn out for the best?

 


The right place at the right time

Ask Bournemouth or Watford what they do, then follow!

The same as our transfer strategy after AWB left. The money will disappear, and we'll sign one or two cheap players who won't be any use to us.

When was the last time we signed a player who was a success? Ayew is the best in recent years, and he's dead average.

Tomkins, Cahill, Luka, VG. I'd say they were successful signings in recent years.

Thought he was better today than he has been. But the miss in the last minute, not even hitting the target , is why he will never be a top, top level attacking player.
Hope he keeps getting better though , to benefit us or raise his price tag.

He was 90% responsible for our goal holding off two players playing in Bentenke and then finding space and finishing. Mane and Firmino missed easy chances too - are they not top players either? Gave Trent a really hard game today. Shame he didn't see more of the ball.

We should give him the ball far more often. He is back to his old self even trying to break the net in the last minute!
Great to see his form today.

Yea he was back to himself yesterday when Henderson went off as they were doubling up on him Arnold just wasn't able to boss him on his own. Seemingly a piece in the paper today kinda blames the no transfer for him on the potential takeover of the club, But hey it is the Sun ! Pinch of salt and all that.

Yes, yesterday was a timely reminder of why we like Wilf. His best game this season at Selhurst?
