You like a good thrust, Willo.

Some fans are never happy. I am the first to criticize Parish and have for years, but there is nothing wrong at all with this signing and time will prove me correct.

People who slate a signing like this dont understand football to my money.

Oh and you are bang on about a right back but dont forget Wardy can do a job there.

You talk about people not understanding football and then you go on to say Ward can do a job there. Joel is a hero but would struggle in the championship. He is nowhere near PL quality, on top of that the only cover we have is playing a CB out of position.

James McArthur, James McCarthy ... just imagine if we still had Paddy McCarthy and Alex McCarthy.

I am certainly not alone in thinking that a right-back was a priority.
Ward is an honest professional who can do a job there but he will be viewed as a weak link by PL teams.

If before the season started I had predicted that Ward would be first choice at right-back, we would not be signing any strikers and would spend aprox £7 Mill in the transfer window many would have concluded that I had either taken leave of my senses or engaged in a wind-up to stimulate debate on HOL !

Plenty would have believed you. I'm not even sure we spent 7 mil. The fees are probably in installments. Having one right back and Kelly seems ridiculous, but we went nearly a season with no left back so we had to even things out.

Which doubtless would have evolved into another 'Willo thread'!

People that are claiming it's 3m are wrong its a deal up to 8m so again we have gone and over paid.

total for this window is around 11-12m if you include fees and add ons doesn't look like good business again.

Forever trustworthy eh grumpymort

If you are correct, I assume that we only pay £8m if McCarthy plays plenty of games. If he does, that would indicate he was a good signing and a strong player. If so, £8m is fine.

If he proves to be a sicknote our exposure is £3m.

So it DOES look like good business.

In any case the fee was undisclosed. However:

''BBC Sport journalist David Ornstein has said on Twitter that Crystal Palace are only paying £3m to bring Everton midfielder James McCarthy to Selhurst Park, in what is a surprise update given other contrasting reports. However, Ornstein has disagreed with the Daily Mail – and another report by Sky Sports – by saying the deal is actually worth £3m. Whether that is simply the upfront fee with further add-ons included is unclear.''

Perhaps you can enlighten us as to the exact nature of the deal please grumpymort. We can then update Wikipedia.

Wouldn't it be good to at least let the man put on a Palace shirt a few times before we judge him?

That’s what I hate about you YT. You always come on here and start talking sense
