We have a championship ground and championship academy and training ground. All are supposed to be improved but not much has happened yet. I'm not saying it won't happen - I hope it does happen. This spell in the Premier League will only be worth it if we sort these things. Otherwise what is the point?
Money wise all going on wages. Playing wise - not going down. Hardly inspiring.

The ground is a massive concern in my view....Selhurst is important in lots of ways but forgive me..the phrase, 'lipstick on a pig' comes to mind over structural investment....I hope I'm proved wrong.

However, investment in the academy is happening as it's something that pure money can solve....Well, the kind of money we have I should add.

Because for most things, ultimately it comes down to how large your pockets are.

We are a significantly bigger club than we were ten years ago.....and that's a positive.

Exactly, I've just been looking at 'Knees up mother Brown' and feel a lot better.

We have spent diddly squat over the last two years and yet are two points off a European spot having played all but one of the so-called big teams and still have (possibly) as much as £50m in the bank to play with in January; plus our best player hasn't even woken up yet.

Get the ball moving forward more than moving side to side or back; make the opposition keeper work for his pay.

Side to side is important for creating gaps, backwards is just because side to side hasn't worked lol ..mainly because of the opposition.

CPFC are in the PL and doing very well indeed, get Liverpool over and then concentrate on the points total. Looks like the academy is in good hands and RH is looking at a new deal which will help secure our PL status.

The ground is not an attractive one and in order to attract investors and up and coming talent it needs to be somewhat attractive, too much talk and no action lol

Hodgson is a brilliant organiser and gets the very best out of his players, I'm very positive with that.

Iíll go first.

Our 3 best players this year imo, Cahill, Ayew, Guaita, only cost a couple of million between them.

Agree with all 3 of those. For all Ayew's hard work is it not a sign of the times that we are having to rely on him for goals.. 10+ for the season will be a good return. For me he really needs someone up there with him, I know no one plays two up top anymore but hes actually very good at retaining the ball and bringing others into play. Really Benteke or Sorloth should have been ideal.

If the midfield choice that Hodgson prefers weren't so lumbering / lumbered with defensive duties, then an attacking minded midfield player would be ideal.

Hoping against all hope or common sense we will beat Liverpool on Saturday - like Man City last year it would be the unlikely sensation of the season.

Unfortunately I can see only a 'rabbit in the headlights' reaction unless we try something totally different - like a creative midfield that would see Zaha and Ayew's runs
and actually pass the ball to them.

But it won't happen if we play our usual 'keep them out' style (which every team knows about)

A useless strategy if we keep on giving the ball away when we get it.

Sorry to put a damper on this thread.
