He’s probably a cabaye type player. We’ve missed someone like this to keep possession and pass.


Staggering how many footballers earning tens of thousands of pounds a week can't perform these skills, which one would assume to be the bare minimum for a player. Then more staggering how many of them seem to end up at Selhurst Park!

 


Palace since 19 August 1972. Palace 1 (Tony Taylor) Liverpool 1 (Emlyn Hughes)

I think this is highly unlikely. He is £5m Championship quality player. Im not sure why we have bought him, I can only assume as back-up. He may make the bench and perhaps the best thing he can hope for is a string of injuries.

 


Following Palace since 25 Feb 1978

Can't say I know much about him as a player, but from reading the Watford forum, it sounds like we've got ourselves a decent player here.

Good on the ball, right attitude and touted as a future Watford captain. They seem gutted to have lost him.

With him, Zaha, Gallagher, Olise, Eze, Riedewald we've got some technically good midfielders/attackers who should be able to create a few more chances.

If he's match fit, expect him in the first team before too long. Kouyate and Jairo are squad players in midfield and Luka, if he's match fit by the Spurs game, will need to hit the ground running if he wants a regular place. I have my doubts that he'll be able to do that.

I wish Will Hughes well.

But in the bargain basement, I'd have thought Sissoko, for £3m (reportedly) the better buy. I thought Sissoko was on our radar for a while, but £20m, if Spurs was prepared to sell, was the quoted price.

So Watford has sold Hughes, bought Sissoko and made £3m in the process.

Fine.

He is more than a Championship player, lower PL, which, at this time is what we are. He is experienced and only 26. Mobile, can pass and keep possession. Something our midfield has been lacking, I am happy with this signing, if proved wrong I will happily hold my hands up. I sincerely hope he is not written off by some before he has even played

Must say £3m for Sissoko seems a steal

dunno…hes 32 and probably on more than 80k a week.

hughes is 6 years younger and a decent player i would suggest at £6m we got a decent deal there.

How do you think the team would look with Hughes? And can you see Palace pushing for the top 10 with this side?

I think 4-3-3 (Guaita, Mitchell, Guehi, Andersen, Ward, Gallagher, Hughes, Mcarthur, Zaha, Benteke, Olise)


If Palace did buy a new striker like (Edouard, Nketiah or someone else) then they would start ahead of Benteke most likely.

I am beginning to think Butland may be first choice before too long

he is better than Luka, Jairo, Kouyate, Riederwald or McArthur - we can only afford to play one of those midfielders in our starting eleven - he's on a much lower wage than Sissoko and we got him cheap bcos of his contract situation. I can really seeing him clicking with King Conor. It's great business - end of.
