One would hope that now that those players have largely been integrated into the team & they are now (to a greater or lesser degree) known entities in a Palace shirt that someone is working on revised contracts that demonstrate the clubs longer term view of their involvement / ongoing contribution.

Interesting point on degree and circs. You're quite right that we will always be a selling club - even Leicester are after all. Serendipity perhaps but we appear to have timed our buying spree ideally this season with the market in the doldrums with COVID finances - it was a great time to be buying and quite the wrong time to be selling unless you had Ben White and a manic Arsenal board after your prime asset.

Arguably we have lost out on a Zaha windfall with his market value nothing where it was previously but as you point out Olise Eze Guehi are all very marketable "commodities" potentially. I rather fancy that the 4th name on the list is not Mitchell but Edouard should he continue on his current trajectory.

One point I'd add is that we are now perhaps edging closer to territory where sales become a greater threat. Part of this is driven by buying "higher risk higher reward" players such as those named as they are much more likely to attract big 6 suitors than the more journeymen types we have previously bought where the pool of suitors was much smaller. The other part is that all these players are on significantly lower salaries. Players move from ambition but also - quite naturally given the brevity of their career - for pay packets.

Yes, because two are rubbish, and one is an overpaid petulant player who cares only about himself.

All clubs are selling clubs, that is how football works. The difference now is the Premier money means, smaller Premier clubs dont need to sell, as they once did in the old Division One.
You will notice only Guehi came from a big club, as he was surplus to their needs and had the highest fee in the summer, all the rest came from lower leagues and we picked up cheaply, as the lower clubs need the money.

Like with everything in life its theory vs practice.

Young players don't always push on. Big signing don't always perform.

Every club regardless off the size, wants to buy low and sell big. But its not always possible.

That's a worry, as most of your posts are before 11am !
