Everything had been agreed and a medical was scheduled , but at the last minute he was informed West Ham were in for him and he changed his mind about coming to Palace.
Another case of might have been , but usually these stories are not confirmed so openly.

Flynn Downes has collected 30 yellows and 2 reds in the previous 3 seasons.
He has said that he cannot take the 'Fire' out of his game, but needs to exercise greater control.
He has certainly got a good 'Engine' getting up and down the pitch.

Clearly PV wants more additions, every transfer window, we are slow to make additions, I do hope PV is patient!

Conor Gallagher committed 70 fouls (1st) last season, and got 12 bookings (2nd) last season

 


Tell me, is something eluding you, sunshine?
Is this not what you expected to see?
If you wanna find out what's behind these cold eyes
You'll just have to claw your way through this disguise

the story is that FD's agent is related (daughter?) of a senior member of hammers coaching staff (Mark W?)..

she phoned him up and told him FD was available ( im not sure if they knew before that phone call?), the rest is history
(there were enough hammers saying the above happened to think its true)

Swans fans were saying "done deal" to us (im NEVER going to believe thta term again!!!) so it may have got that far??!!!


 


HAPPY to be an employee of 2010!!!!!

Flynn Downes was born in Brentwood and is a West Ham supporter.

Mark Warburton's daughter Elisha works for the Wasserman Agency.

This is true. WH would have known what we had offered. His agent is indeed the daughter of Mark Warburton

I think any agent, regardless of relationships, would highlight to a interested club what was currently on offer for their player.

I really do not care about the ones we missed (anymore - I definitely used to - Cahill and the striker who went to West Ham and was badly crocked)

90% turn out to be either average, occasional appearances or never seen again

Yes, Murphys Law means you remember the ones you might have signed but probably they were just using Palace to get a better deal from the club they always intended to join.

Which is apparently exactly what happened with Cahill

I tend to view the transfer window as a bit like when we were of dating age - plenty to look at, some out of our league, some where we think we can do better, some where we think they have been with too many other clubs, everyone in the game has their own agenda & dance card & where you end up isn't necessarily where you expected etc etc - anyway I am sure you get the drift-

Some who would cost too much money in the long run. Some who can't play in the positions we want. Some who are never fit or ready to play when we desperately need them. But as the transfer window goes on, we will take someone, because in the end they are all pretty much the same problems.
