My take...

Wilf and managers have publicly come out and stated he doesn't get any protection. The stats are all for us to see that he is one of the top two players to be fouled.
Deeney has come out and said they took turns.

It's no secret, there is not much more left to say.

However, to some, wilf has an attitude problem, he 'failed' at utd, didn't try 'hard' at cardiff and back in his comfort zone at palace where he is the highest earner, back with his pals and in flash cars.

His England stint was a mixed bag and he either gave up and went to IC or he was ignored, so went IC.

So already, there are some opinions of him - rightly or wrong.

So when teams want to get three points off us, to either win a league, stay in a league, they know this is a good tactic 'wind up wilf, disrupt him'.

If he cannot see this, if he cannot bite his lip on 120k, if he cannot just let his football do the talking and realise it's all part of the opposition trying to 'beat' him/us then he will never make it in the big teams.

I appreciate it's hard, but we all face demons, obstacles and challenge and we are told to persevere - he needs to look at Beckham post 98, he was hated by everyone... the press loved to hate him... he turned it around, can wilf?

I say no and i say cash in on him whilst we can, it's almost on the verge of being a distraction - get 50 mil, spend that on two new attacking midfielders - think of how much AT cost us... get two more of him in our team... job done.

 


This was once a quality forum....

Jury will be out oh Wilf now. All very well saying sell him. Many of us have paid good money to watch him. He is one of our most exciting players ever. Donít let something like this lose him. The guy is a special very rare talent. His skills make a massive difference to fans customer experience at games. Whenever Wilf gets theball at his feet it is like getting a fix of adrenalin.
We are all involved in a sport where the PC world has taken over and tonightís game was a classic example of that. Let Zaha get smashed time and again and other Palace players. Then let Ward Prowse take the *iss (whoops pc boys wonít like this word so Iíve changed it). Then watch Zaha lose his cool and let the pathetic PC world take over. Easy way out is blame Wilf, sell Wilf,buy 2 new better players with the money ( yeah right!,) ban Wilf maybe for more than one game just to let us all know that being well behaved is far more important than being talented.
Petulance is a huge crime in football. Hazard is the world master at controlling himself. Wilf is not. Wilf has attitude and I am100% with him. Iím so fed up with refs constantly failing to follow the rules. These PC officials are going to destroy the game if we let the current way continue. It notgood enough. Let a talent get niggled,taunted and smashed all game. Wait for him to blow his fuse and then send him off. Well I And many others have paid good money to watch him.so I am being penalised for this situation.
The FA and football needs to take a long hard look at this. He will get an automatic one match ban. What happens beyond that will determine the future of our beloved sport. If the FA give him more then they are condoning the end of super talent and saying donít express yourself, we want nice polite boring players. They will be killing the game.
Defend Wilf to the hilt guys. This is a big thing. At the very least he needs every Palace fan out there to be with him. Yes he was petulant but for a reason. He broke. So did I. And so do so many of you in the stands every time he gets chopped down. Itís killing the game.
Time to address this. Defend talent at all costs. Without it the game will lose one of its most exciting aspects.

Wonít defend Zaha here however this was a somewhat unique game.

The ref bottled the Stephens tackle on Andros that should have been straight red. Bednareks tackle on Wilf was an orange card at worst and Wilf barely complained, which I noticed.

Ward Prowse is an annoying little rat of a player and he got to Wilf, then fouled him, the ref once again bottled it and their little rat was able to wind Wilf up even more and you saw the rest.

Wilf has to stop this though as he may as well walk around with a bullseye on his shirt.

Agreed. Ward Prowse knew exactly what he was doing, goading him having escaped the foul. Is provocation of another player a bookable offence? He baited the trap and Wilf naively took his hand off. Not defending him at all. He should rise above it but some days it must be hard.

Yes Wilf took the bait , but you know what he got battered this game and as already mentioned Mariner could of booked or sent off half the SFC team in the second half.

Amd Roy Ffs You take off CK for Schlupp , they score , we have JA achieving nothing all game but leave him on when we need a target man up from to take the pressure off.

For the love of Christ sort the substitutions out , 3 points thrown away again.

On a positive spin Wilf gets a rest mid season.

Well said!! Itís time to cash in on Wilf if he does this much more then his value with drop massively let him go in summer bring in a few players beef the squad up.

He is banned for Saturday but may well miss more games for not leaving the pitch in a timely and gentlemanly fashion - apparently the same thing happened to Vardy?
We saw everything last night - Wilf and others assaulted without protection; Wilf scoring; Wilf not following Ward Prowse back for their goal; Wilf losing it and maybe costing us dearly.
I have a lot of sympathy for him but he has to stop reacting in the way that he does.

Where's captain Luka there to calm Wilf down? Then after that why has no one just cleaned Ward-Prowse out? Our team is soft. Can you imagine Jedinak letting Southampton get away with the amount of fouls on Wilf?

Can't believe Wilf is only just over a year younger than Andros. The difference in attitude doesn't reflect that. Wilf is not a kid any more. Needs to wise up fast.

If he gets a further ban it will be a complete mockery of football. The way he was treated last night by a number of Southampton players was absolutely outrageous and Marriner's failure to protect him must about to gross negligence.

Sadly, now, because of his actions, he can expect his targeting to increase.

The rights and wrongs and whether its understandable are neither here nor there because 'Do a Southampton on him' will be the future opposition dressing-room team-talk
