Heard we are losing Hungbo on a free to Watford. We are also in the process of selling our best players and have sold our only young first team prospect.

Not so as Hungbo was released by us at the end of the season

Not really that different, if Watford sign him is it?

We haven't signed anyone and have had several leave. Whilst those that have left, may not be the best or were older, we seem to have nowhere near a 25 man squad.
Something has gone wrong. I'm assuming the Americans are causing trouble. I'm also assuming we are being taken over. Even if we are, someone needs to get a grip of the playing staff and form a decent 25 man squad. Whilst the chairman can piss around with the Americans and any takeover people, the DOF should be actively transfering players regardless of the off pitch stuff.
A proper statement about what is actually going on would be nice. We could hardly be a less attractive destination if we did state some rich foreign consortium is likely to takeover. We could hardly get ripped off in transfers any more than we do now.
Seriously, we have championship club at best, written all over us right now. We should be top half Premiership Club after this time, if managed prudently. What irks me are Bournemouth, Watford and Brighton - all are making decent additions, whilst we are trying to stop our best players walking out to a team that are hardly any better than us.

I know it's difficult to be optimistic at the moment but thinks aren't quite as bleak as you are seeing them.

Firstly, Hungbo was released. We aren't losing him and if Watford see something in him that our coaches don't then good luck to them.

With the exception of AWB we have only parted company with players that were no longer considered good enough.

Regardless of what's going on behind the scenes re club ownership, the scouting of players continues and in theory we now have a bigger war chest to play with. It's not unusual not to have made any signings at this point.

Bournemouth haven't signed anyone yet but may lose Ake if rumours are true. Watford have signed Craig Dawson ( spit ). Brighton have made their annual purchase from the Dutch / Belgian league.

As for losing players to teams hardly any better than us - come on be realistic

The author of the article had the same problem.

I'm not sure why everyone is feeling so pessimistic. We've been a one man team for the last couple of seasons and now we have the chance to rectify that.

There has been no signs of any incomings at the moment but that doesn't mean that there won't be any as Parish and Co always play their cards close to their chests

Anyone who is anti-Parish is an imbecile with no understanding of our history or the context of a small-medium sized club in todays Premier League.

I think central to it is losing AWB and the Zaha saga .

Agreed, we knew the day was coming re Wilf and with no confirmed incomings it feels worse than it maybe is.

As to pro or anti Parish, overall I am pro while far from agreeing with everything he does.

Promotion, six seasons in the Premier League and an FACup final from favourites for relegation to League One. Pretty decent by most standards. Seeing the likes of Cabaye in the shirt. Some fantastic memories.

Definitely pro but not sure Id be quite so much if I had to waddle through p1ss in the Arthur Waite or had been shifted from Block E after 25 years. Some things still feel very Mickey Mouse.

Id refute that hes made mistake after mistake. Thats 2020 hindsight and wed have been punished with relegation if that were the case.

No such thing as a one man team.

Parish is doing what he does same mistake for another year running panic towards the end players that will be ones that other teams no longer want.

So much for all the talk back in Jan that we had all these targets and Dougie was already working on it.

Still only have 4 man scouting system and 2 of them are part timers not exclusive to Palace.

What a stupid comment. Anyone who can't see any faults in our chairman is the imbecile

Parish is an excellent PR man whose evident skill amply explains how he ran a very successful PR company and made millions.

He transferred these skills into his running of CPFC, where he's on a massive salary and has received at least one huge payday by roping in American investors. He is now pursuing another whilst employing a survival business model to keep palace in the premier league: meanwhile, the PR machine is in constant overdrive, bombarding fans with messages that put crap players and managers on a pedestal and keep us onside with false promises of new stadiums/stands: a smoke and mirrors trick that has worked twice.

For those not blinded by the cheap timeshare salesman's patter, crap transfers, unsustainable wages, jobs for the boys, and no real ambition beyond just eeking out survival year on year see him for the out-of-his-depth chancer that he is.

The take the money and run approach to flogging our best asset this summer is further cause of concern, as cynically I suspect he's ramping up his exit strategy of asset strip and flog to some oaf.

He's like Ron Noades with charm.
