Darren Ambrose has been set a goal target by manager Neil Warnock following his blistering start to the season in front of goal.

The 25-year-old, signed on a free from Charlton Athletic in the summer, only scored once last season but has already found the back of the net six times in just 12 appearances this campaign.

He is Palace's leading scorer and Warnock revealed he was on the way to meeting his target.

"I've set him a target this year and he is well on his way to meeting it," he said.

"He is an intelligent player and he is fitting in well with us."

Am guessing it was 10 - tho I'd be tempted to push that up to 15.

If my bosses can move the goalposts - so can Neil Warnock!

As soon as I read this I remembered when Noades promised Eddie McGoldrick 10K if he could get 10 in a season. He did it before Xmas I think and then hardly ever scored again.

The goals he is scoring, we might as well play him as a striker.

He has been playing as a striker at some points. In the left of the 4-3-3 and he even played alongside Lee against Sheffield for a bit

Don't know if he scored a lot but for some reason i never rated him as a Palace player.

He's only 25?

Blimey, I had him down as a couple of years older. The start he's made to his Palace career has been fab and long may it continue.

Surprisingly Darren is yet to win me over. He often seems to go missing from games, and his set piece deliveries aren't always as good as I would hope/ expect. Still don't think its entirely his fault as he's more suited to playing more centrally than he is, and as long as he scores goals he'll merit his place in the team.

He hasn't dominated a game other than the Ipswich match but his contributions in terms of verying play and scoring goals has been there for all to see. His set piece delivery is good generally, as good as Ben Watson's in any case and certainly more consistent. He also is scoring more us than Ben usually would do but then they are really arn't like for like in terms of comparing their roles and strengths to be completely fair to both of them.

Indeed, same goes for Paddy.

On the flip side they know how to make an average player utter crap, i.e. Hudson.

Only clowns could do all that:hi:

And if he was that good...we wouldn't be able to afford him...you gets what you pay for...

Mullins scored 10 goals in 45 games in the 99-00 season

Ambrose strikes me as a creative only midfielder, not a box to box or "midfield General". I think it's the presence of Derry and Etl/N'Diaye that has allowed him to disappear a little in midfield.

I've been very impressed with Ertl. Not on the pitch particularly, although I think he did the dirty jobs very well on Sat, but his attitude in general. I really hope he makes it.

I think Ambrose isn't involved enough, but the class is there for all to see. Hopefully, with the goals, his confidence will increase and then he'll be running games.

I think that's incredibly harsh regarding his set-pieces. He's the best set piece taker I can remember us having for ages. Probably since Jolly Rodger.

Also, he played a lot of his early career on the wing or upfront, so he's perfectly used to it.

I'm not sure that's his game to be honest. I think he's more of a player that will provide a killer pass, a decent pet piece and score some important and great goals. I can't see him bossing the midfield, tackling and running the game.

If he disappears then pops up and scores a goal every other game that'll do for me :p
