View Full Version : All quiet on the transfer front

Apart from the vague speculation surrounding Le Tiss, all seems quiet on the transfer front. Could it be that we're not looking at anybody until a new manager comes in???

I can just see Le Tiss moving to Palace, it's just what he needs. A mediocre/poor 1st division club, supposedly low moral amongst players/management & supporters, no chance of impressing anyone even if he plays out of his skin, oh! not to mention (probably) a drop in salary. What a difficult decision for the poor bloke to have to make!

We are giving trials to the Thai captain and some French geezer, as well as possibly another Chinese player. Maybe these will come to something. Anyone with any more info on these guys? (repeating my, as yet, unanswered thread in Transfer Hotline)

The Holmesdale Online message board has something about us getting Ian Morre with McKenzie going there in exchange. Could this be true?

Why has it all gone quiet on the Phelan front as well. Most Palace fans remember those raids done the left wing and his experience would be an asset.

It's noticably quiet on EVERY club's transfer front at the moment. I think everyone's waiting to see what happens next with the transfer system before committing.

Ian Moore in a swap deal with Leon. . . . . . . . YES PLEASE !

Not so long ago loads of flack about conducting transfers in public. Now complaints that there are no negotiations being done in public.
Could it just be that SJ/AS have learnt from the Beattie mess?

why all this fuss over Ian Moore???
Who is he and whats his goalscoring record, etc
I just don't want us to be a laughing stock any more, is that too much to ask?

The fuss over Ian Moore is (for me at least) that he is the right TYPE of player for our needs at the moment. He's as big physical centre forward / target man , who also has a decent goalscoring record (although with a career average of about 1 in 3, he's not prolific). He's also the right age (24) and being at Stockport, his wages should be within reach. At around £1.5m, he'd also represent better value than any of the other options mentioned to fill this obvious gap in the side.
In short, I think we should sign him (or Andy Booth). With these sort of players available, I don't think we should be pursuing Shipps or Beattie

Ian Moore would be a good signing for div 1 football, at the very least he'd create serious competition for that lazy bigheaded knob Morrison.
Good finisher I think.
Le Tissier is not going anywhere. He is in his testimonial season at Southampton, and this will be their first ever game in the new stadium they are moving to next year. This will of course be a sell-out and give Le Tiss lots of moolah.
I think we can rule anything but a short term loan out.

Ian Moore - 156 league matches, 26 league goals, 5 foot 11, weighs a tad under 13 stone. Only ever hit ten goals in a season once, last season for Stockport County. Is 24 years old.
