If we are to believe the rumours , the vultures are circling Selhurst Park. We need an eagle to save us !!!!!!
Someone needs to move fast and get Zaha to commit . Pay him what he wants, without him we are not going to be a Premiership side. If we can get rid of Benteke then surely we have the money to pay him , otherwise he will go and we will lose our talisman!!!July 20, 2018 at 8:39 pm #1657950
Well it seems like im the only one that is bothered about Zaha leaving. Every man and is dog wants to buy him and he has turned down our terms it seems. The only and i mean the only deal that seems remotely like any deal which wouldn’t finish us for next season would be with Everton. They are offering 60 million plus Bolaise back. I would still rather have ZAHA as bolaise does not look like half the player he was after his injury!! – legend that he isJuly 21, 2018 at 9:26 pm #1658099
Jeano I gave up on rumours as they are purely to sell papers. We have been told we have no money yet we have been connected with so many players. The only one that has affected me is Zaha he said last year that he did not want to go anywhere yet he turned down a better contract. Perhaps he has had his head turned, I thought he was a Selhurst lad like myself.We could lose him but we are not a big enough club to attract an equiverlent player. HIS loss would really bother me like Wright to the gunners or Johnny Burne to the Hammers. We still seem to be lacking a scoring forward.July 21, 2018 at 9:28 pm #1658100
Equivalent!!!July 22, 2018 at 1:22 pm #1658212
Thing is, papers are saying Zaha turned down new contract offer, do we know this even happened for sure?
I think the papers are talking crap as ever, but, I am also not buying this one man team nonsense… Zaha is not the single reason we will stay up or go down, it looked that way last season because we had so many injuries that we didn’t have options… provided we have decent options then I will be fine…
I want Zaha to stay, but building a winning mentality around one man is as dangerous as the risk we took with only having Benteke as our only fit striker… it’s too high risk, we need options for when Zaha is injured, when he’s off his game, when we need a different outlet…
Unlike many, I will not be doom and gloom when he finally leaves, because he will this year or next and we all have to accept that.. He’s too good for us,and I will wish him well with a smile when that days comes.
I think the “no money” noise coming out of Palace is a bit of smoke and mirrors because we have paid through the nose for Benteke and Sakho, and I think clubs see us as a pay a premium type of club… We need midfielders/wingers for options, and perhaps another striker, add that to two loan signings and the kids coming through and we will be fine, with or without Zaha..July 23, 2018 at 8:27 pm #1658641
that maybe so but the new season is nearly upon us and we have signed no one!!! All ourriva.s have strengthened their squads. Ours is weaker with loss of CAbaye and RLC. WE clearly haven’t learnt from previous seasons. Words fail me !!July 24, 2018 at 10:45 am #1658777
Jeano – Word is we are paying for past transfer windows.. yet in January we signed three players, one sent back, one being sold without ever playing a game and the last one barely able to get a look in for a game.. pretty poor for 12.5mil not incl wages… No, we don’t learn, we haven’t in 5 years, so I am not expecting them to change. I only hope we can at least get a couple of decent loans across the line and keep what we have… we will have a worse transfer window of all the teams in the prem by a country mile, and that is a recipe for diasaster… The real problem we have is not actually in attack, we have Zaha, Benteke, Sorloth and Wickham… our real weakness right now is the flanks and midfield.. our defence is good and we have a great new keeper… But there is no doubt that we need at least 4 new players, 2 wingers and two midfielders, without them we only need one or two injuries and we will be player strikers and defenders in midfield that that is basically a re-run of last season where lack of depth meant injuries really hurt us…July 24, 2018 at 2:05 pm #1658866
I’ve said before Freedman should go. What does he do? Where is the planning? I feel sorry for the managers is this why some of them left? Should the club be a bit more outgoing? You could have bet money on this situation occurring again. That’s why I decided to keep quiet.Not quite agreeing with Jabbs as Sorloth was not up to it in the last match and regret Wickham is on a gravy train as it is over a season and nothing to show. When he does get fit he may not be good enough.July 24, 2018 at 3:00 pm #1658884
Punch.. I know what your saying about Sorloth, but if he’s not up to it, why did we spend 9mil!! Jach looks on his way out and I suspect we will lose money on that one… my point was that the last window was a disaster, and this one looks like a last minute trolley dash aswell… I think Wickham is a class act and we will get to see that this season, I also think Benteke will come good too….. another striker would be nice, but our depth in midfield is not good at all right now… I’d really like to see a few signings, doesn’t have to be marquee/expensive just some depth to get through the season.. we do have a pretty decent squad and last season we finished off six games unbeaten… but we have lost players and we simply must replace, we can’t afford not too.. I am not sure what Dougie is doing and I agree, what is the point when we signed players that we sell or don’t use and bring nothing in…. The next three weeks we need additions not player salesJuly 26, 2018 at 10:11 am #1659365
Jabbs, I’m not worried about the Palace season as a LOT of players coming back from injury are like new signings. I feel sorry for Hodgson and wonder what impute he has on the players coming in as they never seem to be his favourites. Late deals can save money, which we do not have, but so late that even if they are any good they will take ages to meld. I wish the club were more open with the fans and explain Freedman.August 3, 2018 at 9:58 am #1661378
Zaha wants Chelsea? Has Loftus Cheek turned his head?August 3, 2018 at 2:21 pm #1661478
From what I am seeing it looks like paper talk as per usual, I would be very surprised if he is sold this season…
