Could be worse, we could be West Ham, no matter how many gazillions they spend, they still end up s***e or below average at best

With a brand new, basically free, ground.

Doesn't say much for us then as West Ham finished above us last season beating us both home and away in the process

we drew 1-1 with them at Selhurst last season.
17 shots to their nil in 2nd half and all we had to show for it was Wilf's deflected shot (his only goal at home last season).

With respect you have mis-interpreted my comments perhaps because I never explained my viewpoint very well (Which is quite normal!).

All I was trying to impart is that Parish is working around the clock on club business at this busy time and with nothing really to report on transfers is concentrating all his efforts in this direction.When there are any positive developments to report I suspect he might break his radar silence.

In terms of silence during the summer windows, I am led to believe that it is a very busy time for clubs and if it was me I would be getting on with the job in hand and only take to the media if I had something positive to report to the supporters in terms of transfers etc.

I’m intending this to be my last word, so if you reply I’ll have to ignore it or the thread gets derailed.

If Parish wanted to comment he would. He doesn’t have every minute of the day taken up by phone conversations with other clubs and talks with DF and other scouts. Don’t be so ridiculous. It takes a couple of minutes to make a comment, and I suspect he’s been asked plenty by journos this summer. Or you think he sleeps in a sleeping bag in the office in Soho, Selhurst or Beckenham and eats baked beans until August 9th/10th.

With the greatest of respect, I have given my opinion as to a possible reason why Parish has not rushed to the media to pass official comment - nothing of any significance to report! Accordingly I really have nothing to add.

Clearly you and I are not birds on the same twig on this matter ! Take care and enjoy your weekend.

i was listening to a podcast on my way home from work yesterday & it was about the 10 year battle between man utd & arsenal with wenger & fergie.

it it there was a line that some arsenal fans dad who had been going for 50 years told him to “drink it in” when watching the invincible as he was never going to see a team better than that.

i feel that instead of moaning & digging out anybody senior within the club we should be thinking this about our current squad & position within the world of football pyramid as halcyon days supporting palace.

if you had told me 10 years ago our squad would contain players of the quality of sakho pva luca meyer townsend wilf bentekkers i would have laughed at you...however it foes, we are a established mid table PL team with our best ever squad, with our best ever player & people arnt happy.

have so many people been brainwashed by slysports that they are at braking point because we havnt signed another player nobody has ever heard off instead of actually appreciating what we actually already have?

we really should be “drinking it in” and savouring times like these, when it comes to our current level of success, the current squad of players we have, and level of football we play on ocassions is brilliant.

We want to be able to savour Premier League football, which means we need a Premier League squad. We're not ready to say "Oh well, that was nice while it lasted" just yet; if we did some decent business, brought in a couple of new full-backs and a striker, maybe another attacking option, we'd be absolutely sorted. Instead we've let the striker problem fester season after season, signing donkeys and extending their contracts, selling our right-back with no ready replacement, creating a squad that's hugely expensive while having no depth.

We've had a nice jolly in the Premier League though.

we have a premier league squad...it finished 11th last season or have you forgotten that.

we have strikers this season, bentekkers & wickham both back fit.

lets be positive and appreciate what we have got.

If you're satisfied with Benteke and Wickham as our options up front then we've got very different points of view.

In terms of our history comparatively this a very good period.
The current situation though does remind me of the dismantling of the the very good Coppell team where we lost Wright, Martyn, Gray and Thomas.
This time there seems to be an element of shooting ourself in the foot.
Parish has repeatedly said that we are no longer a selling club owing to TV revenues and that if we do sell it will be through choice and on our terms.
We are supposedly in the top 30 clubs in the world in terms of revenue.
Can it really be that we are choosing to sell AWB and possibly Zaha and Luka , arguably our three best players?
AWB said in an interview at the end of last season he would definitely be here this season.
Zaha signed a bumper long term deal last season with reportedly no release clause.
Luka is our club captain.
I’m at a loss to understand what’s going on and the fact that’ it’s a good period comparatively is of little consolation.
