Supporters like you are enabling the board to do what they want.

Many of our fans have no ambition and that allows this club to act accordingly.

Imagine if some other clubs sold their two best players in one season. There would be mayhem.

And what do you propose to do to stop the board doing what they want then ? My guess is sweet F.A. You did mention giving up your season ticket - good, there's a waiting list for them so you have the chance to make someone happy.

You talk about a lack of ambition - ok, would you care to share what you think Palace should be aiming for and how you think they can achieve it ?

Time will tell and if we are bottom 3 at Christmas after selling AWB and Wilf, whoís going to say ď you know what this wasnít such a great moveĒ

Selling those 2 isnít going to make us a better side for sure, and letís not forget how s*** our home form has been for 3 seasons now.

Away from home Wilf was our get out of jail free card and we wonít have that luxury anymore.

We are nailed on to get relegated....

I don't think that many of us will deny that being a Palace supporter is currently a bit depressing at the moment.

One of our two best players has left and the other one wants to.

Who wants to come to Palace who is going to improve the team?

I'm waiting for some news to cheer me up.

The BBC report that the deal is £50m with a sell-on fee and yet neither club has announced it which appears strange to me.

I know Punch has gone but Jairo might stay. There is still hope.

Next season is all now about survival, if we keep Wilf and all the rest of the players and don't sign anyone except a couple of loans we will be mid table, sell him we will struggle to survive, right back and striker loaned is what is needed.

This time this year is a different situation, Sell Wilf then, sell Sakho and Benteke off the books no high earners left and plenty of options and money to rebuild.

Tekkers ainít going anywhere he is running down his contract which has 1 year to run, then he goes on a free. The team was struggling up until January, we already had a depleted squad. Selling more players will put us in a worse position.

I think the last good transfer window was when we signed Milo and PVA...

It's a bad deal all around.Parish wanted £60m. We got £45m + £5m
Parish wanted 25% Wilf clause dropped. They said no.
We didn't need to sell, player said he want to go so we sold.AWB was on £10k is now on £80k but most players signed for over m are on £200k. Walker at Man City, Benteke, Sakho even Cabaye was on more when we got him for £10m.AWB is a pretty poor wage deal considering.Man United are the winners. Parish backed down, AWB accepted less than he deserved. That's my summary.

AND this time next year he will be worth £75m. A big mistake not to keep him for another year.

We didn't need to sell,

It's an excellent deal for us and I don't know where you get the idea from that we didn't need to sell. Have you seen the club's financial accounts?

Our team definitely needed strengthening and we appeared to be brassic so now we can strengthen and end up with a better all round team.

Whether we will actually spend the money wisely is another question though

49 clubs have been in the Premier league since it started. There are currently 20 places in the league. The "top 6" are untouchable in terms of revenue and spending power, unless another club gets taken over by a sovereign wealth fund (Norway anyone?) to use as publicity without any concern about losses.

Only 19 teams on that list have more seasons than us, and that includes 7 clubs who are now not in the Premier League. Only 6 teams on that list have never been relegated. This is the first spell we have had in the Premier League without getting relegated after one season.

There are a number of posters here who need to get a sense of perspective. The whole tenor of this board has changed since we have had a long spell in the top division. We have no divine right to be here, and all 14 teams outside the top six are in danger of being relegated at any time.

Yes I know some here are bored with the "I've watched Palace for 50+ years in all divisions" group, but at least we are supporters who watch the club wherever they are in the league. There is a generation of fans who have grown up knowing nothing but the Premier League, grown up watching wall to wall football on tv, and think that life only exists in the Premier League.

Will I disappointed if we get relegated? of course I will. Will i still support Palace? of course I will.

Look again at that list of 49 clubs, and enjoy what we have whilst we have it. We are more successful now than we have ever been. We have some of the best players we have ever had. The moaning that goes on here is just unbelievable.

Rant over, feel free to throw things.

I wonder how Marco Gabbiadini is these days?
