That lame jog instead of a sprint over to the Arfur in the 2nd half when there was a chance to win the ball should have confirmed his return to Swansea and the championship.

He looked like a small child up against the wall that is Maguire. He is clearly too lightweight to hold the ball up and when he did get through on goal he was generally offside. His lack of confidence showed in the first half when he got in behind the defence and ran away from the goal thus reducing his shooting angle (to save his blushes he was called offside) and then when Townsend laid it on a plate and he side-footed it like a gentle six-inch golf putt.


He hasn't looked happy from day one and I think this is affecting his game. You can't really fault his effort yesterday as he did not stop running, but Sorloth did more in 10 minutes than Ayew achieved. In hindsight Sorloth perhaps should have got the nod, but neither has exactly been lighting the pitch up.

but does he actually have any pace even if he did decide to sprint?

I thought he was totally knackered after his last run, chasing down to the corner flag. He seemed to be breathing very heavily and I wasn't surprised when he was taken off immediately afterwards. He did seem surprised however, suggesting he is not aware of his own limitations.

He didn't do anything right at all yesterday, aside from winning a few headers in the first half. His second half performance was as bad as I've ever seen.

I watched some footage of him when he was playing for Swansea against us. He was chasing down our defence at every given opportunity. Creating chance after chance, I donít see him doing any of that in a Palace shirt.

In fact if this is the best that Dougie Freedman can do, he should leave as well...

Couldn't get to the game yesterday but all of the talk on Radio London post match coverage was dire situation for Palace AGAIN with lack of strike force with Ayew and Sorloth facing particular criticism. Having seen the highlights, I can see why again. Both players need to go in January transfer window on the basis that we can quickly turn around with new faces in that position.

A cheeky punt for Shane Long from Bournemouth?

Shane Long is on the books of Southampton.
He has scored a mere 8 goals in his last 100+ appearances.

Sorloth didn't do anything wrong and held the ball up well and helped build attacks. But yes, Ayew was pretty awful.

To be fair he was only ever signed as a 3rd or 4th striker and at the time seemed good business. However, not having Benteke or Wickham has exposed him badly.
Yesterday he was up against the current England centre back and his lack of confidence has made him totally shot shy and hesitant. What he needs is a couple of goals and he might have a role to play for us before the end of the season. Sadly, getting these goals looks unlikely.

Ayew was far too weak and has been every match. He made runs but he was offside several times needlessly. Every time a Leicester player came near him he fell over and gave them the ball. He did not win many free kicks and the ref was not wrong.
Sorloth came on for 15 mins so should have been willing to sprint for that time but he waltzed around a bit and looked out of his depth. Neither are good enough.
I have lost all patience with Ayew and do not want him pulling on a Palace shirt again. Possibly he could do okay in the Championship. I have some sympathy left for Sorloth - but not much.

So, we are waiting for Tekkers and Connor. Will they make a difference? I would love Connor to succeed after his semi-final goal v Watford and his two-year battle for fitness. As for Tekkers, we know he can't score - but does he win and lay off enough balls to strengthen the attack? Can Wilf and Andros feed off him? It would be great to see Wilf operating wide again, instead of as a makeshift striker.
