I'm with your dad on this one,although I only remember the more famous players. My dad(RIP) supported Palace from the time they played at the Herne Hill Cycle track and had a fantastic memory for past players.

My lad's 8. He thinks what we are now is normal and that a jaunt in the Championship smashing Miiiiiiii would be fun. It is indeed weird.

Then again, my dad thinks we're really a Third Division South team.

Slowly progressing as the generations turn, then.

They were 3rd div South and then 4th Div when i started watching them, i thought they were GREAT.

Wilf likely to go.

AWB already pre signed for Man Utd according to dickhead Adrian Durham.
Next season could be a disaster!!!!!!!

It could be a disaster or it could be the most glorious season in our clubs history. Who knows.

Exactly, got to be positive. Add Townsend and Wickham to that ship-out list and there's potential to build a more balanced, ball playing squad. Maybe even force management to promote one or two of the kids: we wouldn't have found AWB if injuries hadn't forced RH to play him.

I'd be sorry to see AWB go because he's a real talent, but we should expect to do well out of his sale.

I think it’s difficult for us as fans to get a handle on the clubs future plans.
At the beginning of the season,
- we were expecting the commencement of the building of the new stand this summer subject to planning approval
- Steve P was talking about ambitiously about aiming for greater things after a strong finish to last season
- there were no issues around ownership and we understood £100 million had been ringfenced for the new stand
- Zaha and AWB had signed long term contracts which filled us with optimism.
We now seem to have doubts about the above and the silence from the club, I’m sure for good reasons, has been deafening.
No doubt there will be lots of rumours over the summer but I hope at the end of it we still have our key players and be in good shape for pre season.

You’re a dreamer, although the window doesn’t stay open after the 3rd league game so Parish can’t paralyse us that much on the pitch.

Or Could you look at it another way;

Now an established Premier League Club with shares open to buy.

Star player a year into a 4 year contract, who loves playing for the team and loves the fans.

Established Premier League Club now entering 6th year in the Premier League.

Reasonable track record of identifying good Premiership players at low cost - Milo, Tomkins and Gauita.

Track record o bringing players through from academy - Zaha and AWB.

Which Premiership side wouldn't suffer if they got relegated?

Ex England Manager lead us to a comfortable mid table finish.

I would add a club number one in South London with a massive catchment area.

Yes this summer is important.

But depends on whether you are looking at your glass half full or half empty - mine is the former..!!

1. Shares open to buy. Meaningless. Newcastle have been for sale for years.

2. I’m not sure Wilf loves playing this style for the team, and therein lies the issue.

4. Reasonable track record of identifying good Premiership players at low cost? Seriously? We’ve been a joke in the transfer market apart from Pulis and partly Allardyce unless we overpay out of a Panini album, when have we really found anyone cheaper than value or intuitively? This time we’ve signed a keeper who doesn’t like leaving his line and cannot catch the ball in the air, Meyer who itsxlike Parish signed on reputation but Roy doesn’t want him, and Kouyate, who doesn’t play, but can actually carry the ball forward. Our transfer policy is poor and lacks joined up thinking.

5. Reasonable track record for t bringing youth through the academy? 2 players in 10 years, one of whom only happened because Roy was forced to, otherwise he could be playing for the Wombles now.

6. Which Premiership side wouldn't suffer if they got relegated? Nearly all of our players would have to go and the playing philosophy would take ages to change, so we’d suffer very badly, and by the time we sorted ourselves out we’d be midtable at best.

2. Wilf signed a 5 year contract last summer after Roys contract was extended, not actions of someone not happy.

4 Every club buys some duds, if you can name a club where every signing is a success, feel free. Your comments regarding Guaita are churlish, for a free transfer he has been excellent, Speroni cant catch crosses and is a club legend.

5. Jordan dismantled the Academy, it takes time to re establish. 3 players in 10 1 years Clyne, Zaha and AWB.

I can see none of the players we want to keep leaving, with a few decent additions now the FFP has been reset and we will be fine.

I was thinking about this the other day so decided to remind myself of clubs transfers this season. I must say it made me feel a lot better about our recent transfers record.

Ignoring the top 6 when you look at expenditure/transfers that have made an impact I'd say the following:

Overachieved/great season: Watford

Underachieved at quite a cost: Fulham, Brighton, Huddersfield, Southampton and perhaps Bournemouth.

All other clubs IMO have pretty much done as expected in regards to overall spending taking into account existing squad size/ strength.

Now two of thoe have obviosly been relegated and surely keeping FFP in mind the others can't afford another big outlay this summer.

So at worst I think we've done OK this year after spending little and have gone some way to rebalancing the books after the big transfers of Sakho and Benteke.
