I suspect (pray) that DF and SP are working hard behind the scenes, but football transfers are not easy.

It always does come down to the wire (not just Palace) and from the outside it seams mad. Surely you'd want a preseason and a settled squad?! Its accepted that after the international break you'll have a better idea how everyone looks.

I suspect unlike the big boys who can pick the player they want, we are more after player types and value for money. e.g. Edouard or Nketiah. If Arsenal drop their asking to 10m Nketiah is good value...if they want closer to 20m we might as well go for Edouard

Will Hughes is a prime example, surely nobody has identified him as a top priority. But then he doesn't sign a contract extension, and could be available at the right price suddenly its worth looking at.

Donít disagree with that. But I do think that whatever the financial restraints involved, and practical difficulties, it is going to be crucial to continue to strengthen before the end of this window. And I hope whatever they hope to do has been in hand for a while now and stands a chance of happening.
Multi million deals are complicated loads of paperwork and legalities to cope with, After all you couldnít buy a house in two minutes, in particular if it cost £10 mill.
I think all we really want is the best for Palace, they just seem a bit more than Cack handed at times.

Absolutely. and the more you spend on 1 position the less you have to spend on another.

Unless there is no money available, there cant be anyway the hierarchy has missed our inability to score.

Athletic are reporting Hughes for 6m. Wouldn't have been anyone's first choice, but for that money that is a good bit of business.

Hopefully another 2 attackers after him

Thatís my hope as well. Full backs Christmas?, Never satisfied.

Yep.

Hopefully Ferguson will be back by then so that might feel like a new signing.

And we'll also have seen enough of TM to know if we need to sign a starting or back up LB

we need to strengthen in attack and at full back, but the latter problem might not be as drastic in a month or so - it depends on when Clyne is available and if and when Ferguson become available, bcos both Jairo and Schlupp can play at left back, and Tompkins and Guehi can play at right back, so if we have to choose which area to prioritise right now I would say it's up front.

We talk about transfers buying and selling before and during every window. But, the way Parish he does his business is the way he does it; and it's been the same since day one. Having said that I think this is one of the better windows.

 


Zaha has some green grass in front of him here. Finds Ambrose
not a bad effort ooooooooooh! what a goal by Darren Ambrose absolutely stunning strike!!! And, Crystal Palace lead @ Old Trafford.

Three games in and the glaring problem we have got is lack of firepower,defence can do well,but if it has no one to release ball to we will constantly be under pressure and wilt in the end,really don't understand why the one signing that could have made a difference was Armstrong and as usual we are to tight to buy,it has been obvious for a season and a half Benteke is past it,even with his little late burst last season to boost his contract ,and poor old ayew really should have gone,he runs around going nowhere!we are not that far of a eaosnable team when all the injuries are back,but boy do we need a new striker!!!



Yes we certainly do and very quickly, Mateta is never going to fill that need and I think his loan deal has a commitment for use to buy if makes 15 PL starts over the two year loan deal, very worrying if correct!

The rumours I hear are that Mateta will be sent back to Mainz if we get at least one of our striking targets over the line before Tuesday's deadline. Let's hope that both happen.

I would start Ayew up front today. I feel heís been wasting over last year or so stuck out on the right to plug a weakness there whilst Benteke is allowed a free rein at under performing in an advanced position. Ayew also scored a cracker against WH a couple of years ago. Remember that dink?

Prove me wrong Benteke. PLEASE!!!!!!

Sadly he can't, if the sales of good act applied to football transfers then we could sue Liverpool for selling us something that not fit for purpose!

Still a few days to get a fleet of foot young striker tearing around up front making good runs, finding space and getting a shot off in a second. Bang. Goal.
Imagine!
You may say Iím a dreamer, but Iím not the only one.
