I fear we are not wanting to see reality when it comes to Gallagher.

He has gone back to Chelsea and had talks with Tuchel. Who, it is widely reported, has given him assurances for him playing for Chelsea next season.

Although only `reported` this can be backed up with the circumstantial evidence that Conor pretty much said thanks and goodbye on his Instagram. Further backed up by prior to the talks with Tuchel us and Everton believed to be interested. Since the talks Everton are said to be going after Gilmour instead.

I'd love him back and did mute a long time ago that getting him on again on loan was the most realistic best outcome for us. But reality is he isn't coming. We need to move on and accept it. O'Brien and Doucoure in for me would make me happy.

According to the media CFC have new owners (except for a few small details / rubber stamps / exchange of contracts etc) so I guess they will be in place in a few days- (if they are not already) I would guess the biggest clue as to where CG + Home grown talent feature in their plans will be which players they buy during the transfer window (how many midfield superstars)
The problem I see is CFC Management telling CG + Broja that they are very much in their plans, they buy several midfield superstars in the summer, pre season kicks in, CG gets 15-30 minutes at the end of the final pre season game & then realises what the next season is going to look like for him - by this time Palace & most other teams have already invested in replacements.

I'd be happy too if we can get them both over the line.

Looks like McArthur is back for one year, so there's one midfielder. Glad we were able to get this done (just don't get hurt).

Tomkins is back too for another year. If he's on decent wages it probably makes sense.

Really? I rate Schluppy, big time. But class isn't the word that comes to mind. Eze, he's class. Olise too. Schlupp's more of a hard-working, consistent performer who will never really let you down. If we want to push for top 10...players like Schluppy should only really be squad players. But I do like him.

It looks like Tompkins and MacArthur have signed new one year contracts.

Good.

A word often used in football that can be misleading.

For me it has two usages:

1. Class - A player with great skill and ability, who does things others cannot, often drawing 'oooooh's' and 'aaaaaah's'.

2. Class - A player who is very good at their job and an effective constituent of a team.

For me Schlupp is faster than most, stronger than most, more direct than most, can lash the ball better than most, can move with the ball better than most, can jump higher than most, can defend better than other attacking players, more versatile than most and more professional than most.

I am highly biased but I certainly think the Jeffrey is 'class'. I'm seeing that as based on his substance rather than the smoke and mirrors kind which for me can often be an illusion created through flicks and tricks. Schlupp always brings something to games where as the aforementioned always have the potential to be highly ineffective.

That, for me, is class!

When I think of Jeff Schlupp I think of words like- Honest, Industrious, workmanlike, determined, dependable, reliable, committed -

He does a lot of solid work, rarely lets you down & occasionally provides a moment of magic.

He would certainly have a place in my squad.

There are not many players who have played in defence, midfield and attack. Schluppy has done all 3 and never looked entirely out of place. A solid versatile player who would slot with ease into any PL side bar the top 6 who also might consider him a useful squad filler.

I disagree. When Schlupp plays as a defensive midfielder we have real trouble passing out from the back. He looks best in the #9 position or on a wing (which we don't need him for).

I think using him as a late sub is perfect for him. If we need to press later in the game, then put him on. I love the way he shows up in the box and scores when you least expect him to.

The Midfield will be Doucoure solely defensive, Eze solely attacking, and Sclupp/Hughes/McArthur doing a bit of both.
