Steve, can you confirm if anyone from the club will be in Brazil 'on business' for the World Cup? I was wondering whether CPFC will send scouts or anyone from the management team, to have a look at any players first hand.

Secondly, are any of the owners big fans of international football or follow the national side (i.e. go to games)? I have to sadly admit it, but i completely lost my enthusiasm for international football in the late 90s. Just can't get into it anymore and it doesn't come close to supporting Palace.

Thirdly, who is your tip to win it?

I'm not sure if anyone is going to go there "on business" but I imagine that our scouts and management team will at least be watching on tv.

I used to go to England games and went to France, Japan, Portugal, Germany but since buying Palace have lost a bit of interest in England.

My son Sam and Jeremy's son Tom are going to Brasil.

I quite fancy Belgium but expect a South American team will win.

Tony Pulis has been signed up by BBC radio and will be going to the World Cup to cover the group games as an analyst on Five Live.

Not really a question but Jedinak will be going to the world cup on business , I would imagine Mr Pulis would speak to him about any unknown players that he comes up against
