Does that make them the big club Wilf will want to sign for?

I hear that Clyne has signed a new contract, not announced yet, however he is playing in the Walsall friendly.

If he has lets hope it wasn't on the £80,769 a week he was on last year.

Thought this was to do with a contract extension but appears to be that Palace didnít wish Andros a happy birthday on their Twitter account until late in the day.

Christ on a bike. Not aimed at you at all Bubbs, but I'd be fascinated to know who in their right mind could give a flying f*** about stuff like this? Who is looking to see whether or not the person 'employed' as a twitter feed attendant has tackled the vital task of posting some insincere corporate birthday wishes to an adult millionaire?

Should I ever be asked to explain the modern world to a Victorian time traveller, I'd show them airplanes, footage sent back from Mars, and cutting edge medical technology as examples of the advancement of mankind. Then I'd show them twitter, just to even things up.

My sincere birthday wishes to Steve Parish, who has reached the ripe age of 56 today.
Happy Birthday Steve and may you have many more.

Very good Willo. At least you didn't put it on a corporate twitter account I suppose!

If that is true then I would not be happy as an Everton fan. Their recruitment is woeful.

I wouldn't have thought Cahill, Ward and Clyne out-performed Townsend last year, or offered noticeable better value to wages.

Here's a thought...

I remember years ago Peterborough (under the ownership and guidance of Barry Fry) believed that they always needed to employ attack-minded managers who played open, skilful football. This was not because it was the most likely way of achieving promotion (any style of play can be effective), but because the club needed to sell the players it produced, and Fry reasoned that a promising young attacker would always fetch a far higher price than a promising young defender. If he employed a defensive-minded manager then his attacking players would not shine as much, and the business plan would not work.

Now, obviously promising young defenders can go for big money too (see AWB), but I think there's still some logic to Fry's theory.

I wonder if perhaps -in part at least- Cahill, Ward and Clyne are being offered new terms but not Townsend because the potential value of an exciting young attacker is greater than that of a young defender. If Olise, Rak-Sakyi or Omilabu prove to be good top flight players very quickly, they are far more likely to be worth a fortune than a young defender would be.

It might be as simple as Townsend having the misfortune to play in a position where we would benefit most from developing a young player, financially speaking.

Personally, I'd still keep him. If he was available on a free transfer from another club we'd all say he was a sensible signing. However, perhaps Parish and Freedman want to remove as many obstacles as they can from the paths of Olise, Rak-Sakyi etc so as to maximise the chances of increasing the squad value to its greatest extent.

I watched a few Dagenham & Redbridge games about that time (going to complete 92 league grounds); they bought strikers that Peterborough bought from them. Gayle, McClean, Murph . Might be another one, Hence my opinion on Gayle, expressed previously years not being top quality. Loads of pace but no awareness. It is definitely more profitable than buying defenders. Also Peterborough tended to be the team with the most goals scored, and almost conceded. Great entertainment. Looks like we have moved in the right direction.. Would be nice if wed could cut the "Peterborough" out of the loop and do it ourselves.
