Easily the best I have ever seen play for palace in my life. I think heís an excellent player and has his head screwed on relatively well.

I love the fact he gets fired up and plays with passion, you can see how much it means every time he scores.

I think we should have let him go at the end of last year it would have been better for all parties but even after the disappointment he never went on strike or anything like that. He had a poor season by his standards but was still one of our most important players and without him I think we would have gone down. We were shocking for large parts of last season. .

He obviously cares about the community and does a fair amount of charity work both here and in his home country.

The amount of grief he gets online and in the stands is ridiculous. When he does eventually go I will hope he has all the success he deserves. In the meantime Iím gonna enjoy watching him play.

he's a big fish in a small pond, that's obvious and he needs to move on.... achieve his potential or realize he had it made at palace.

personally I can only see him winning something as a squad player...

what I find really bizarre is the team looks really promising around him now... a striker this window and its exciting times.

however, if he goes it means we got space/cash for two more signings.

 


This was once a quality forum....

So much wasted talent itís a joke , his ability is wasted on him.
Heís still mugging himself off now , Ward Prowse at home as he was 10 years ago against Alan Dunne at the Den.
Who hasnít played against an idiot with loads of ability that can be talked/kicked out of a game, even at school boy level?
Ability heís a 9 , mentally a 2.
Fair play to him for the 10% that he donates to charity, but apart from that canít see any positives in him.
I want a player that still plays like heís got a tenner in the bank (Suarez, Aguero, Kane etc) , Wilf plays like heís ready to get in his Bentley , walking at defenders and wanting to beat them twice, three times. He thinks it the Zaha show.
Thinks he should be playing at a higher level, but none of the top clubs agree and his goals /assists show where he should be.
The Ďheís one of our own Ď is laughable , he left at the first opportunity and the only reason he is here is because he failed at Man Utd/Cardiff and no one else showed any interest.
Donít care where he goes or if he succeeds or fails, Iím as interested in him, as he is in staying at Palace.
So much love for him on here, but I donít hear it in the Holmesdale stand , many , like me think heís a two bob c*nt.

Think thats abit harsh yes he is annoying at times,He didnt run off a the first opportunity, Alex Ferguson come calling the biggest club in the world he was 19 what would you do,if the biggest company in the world say to you come and work us with more money and awards mmmm,AF called it aday just after signing wilf one season under Ferguson he would still have been at man u now.

your frustration about the his staying or going is getting to you me thinks, he has never downed tools like some players to get a move, so watch this space never know you could love him again if the right players are around him

Stop sitting on the fence, do you like him or not?

 


We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold...

Thereís no frustration about him going from me, I can assure you. Couldnít give a monkeys where he goes or what happens if he does. I think heís the biggest hype job the premier league has ever seen. Not saying heís a bad player, but over all the games heís played for us, the ratio of him turning up hasnít been good enough.
Apparently he insists on playing on the left, even though he canít cross with his left foot, cuts inside has a dig from outside the box (apart from the Chelsea goal , which was quality). and it normally rolls to the keeper, or if heís inside the box it ends up in the top tier.
£80 million was always laughable.

Seems a strange one ? Giving Wilf so much playing time for club and player with injury risk that could jeopardize any move .Personally think he will stay due to lack of buyers .

The issue to be fair with wilf is that he plays in a set up that defends deep, where he is expected to track back, we then attack from deep positions, wilf and bennie are then expected to hold the ball up, hence the reason he goes sideways and seems to slow play up, but yes he annoys the hell out of me with his petulant reactions

One team I cannot are buying Wilfred is the Arse. Arteta seems to be a strict manager and canít see him putting up with Wilfredís temperment, plus Iím not sure he would get in the team. The only English team in the running seems to be Everton. Canít see why anyone who craves top class football would go there.
Are the wheels are coming off his career?

I don't feel the love for wilf that I have for Murray AJ Clinton who I feel all overachieved for us whereas wilf has so much more ability than all of those but mentally he's not mature enough it's a shame although at times he's been electrifying for us really put it on some of the best team's in the league city Chelsea Liverpool arsenal etc I would definitely say he's the most naturally talented player we have had in my 40 odd years of supporting palace I don't include Judas in this for the record I don't think he will move now the ship has sailed

 


walking down the holmesdale road to see the palace aces!

This debate about Zaha is certainly one of the most interesting on this site.
Many people on here saying 'hes been great but last season he was rubbish etc'.
I think Zaha playing for us is in a very unique position. He's a top player playing for a team in 10-15th position, and add to that we don't play to his strengths (in recent years).
I remember seeing WZ playing in some of his early matches as a 17 year old, we were second league and it was exciting. How many of these potential stars have come and gone, and done nothing all their career?
We know Wilf is a special talent. He may leave and go to a top team, like Aaron and many others did before, and achieve his aims. Agents make a lot of blah and we mustn't trust everything we read.
Like it or not, we are not a top team (but I'm super happy we are in the Premier League and always will be!) And he is so good he attracts attention. That's life. If he stays, ill support. If he goes, we must get top dollar and wish him the best.
Regardless, Palace will exist and that's the most important thing. SP we love you, you carry on and give your best for South Londons finest!

If it is a bid of £40m coming from Everton I would just take it. They are well known for spending huge amounts of money although surely they have an identical player in Richarlison, except he is better.
We will probably end up buying him back for £20m.

Was Koeman manager at Everton when they bid for him? Be a laugh if Barca come in for him!
