No chance.

1) we wouldn't sell him imo
2) they could t afford him

Mr Palace
15-05-2017, 05:58 PM
I think this would be a good move if we can get 7-8 million and reinvest it.

What!? Nah your good. He's a quality little player.. with ledley and flamini off already.. wouldn't take 10-12m for him

I think we can do better now. I love the guy but he's dropped off the pace and I think we can bring in a higher quality of midfielder now. Someone who is better in possession.

Pretty much made the last goal Sunday. Once injured, he seems to take a few games to get back to 100%. I think he's a great player and would hate to see him go, let alone there.

You wouldn't get anywhere near 15m for him. Livermore went for 10m I think. And he's not better than him.

I'm fine with him staying - he's a great pro. But I just think we may have to move one or two players on to help us bring in a higher quality of player.

I think Jimmy has played quite often for us when not quite fully fit, unlike Mandanda and Remy, so I am expecting a great 2017/18 from him at CPFC after he has recharged the batteries during the close season

We need him so definite no. We already need to replace loads of midfielders i.e. Ledley, Flamini, Chong Lee, Mutch, Sako so lets not lose our good ones. There's plenty of life left in Jimmy Mac.

Worksop Palace

People have very short memories

He's been one of our most consistent players over the last 2 seasons. Massive heart and decent quality

Yes he's dropped off form with injuries but he's a very important player. If maybe a squad player going forward as we strengthen

Can't see Sam wanting rid

If anybody thinks they could get an upgrade on McCarthur for less than 15m they are living in 2010.

He's not toilet. He's a good player. McArthur isn't a better player - similar level.

Mr Palace
15-05-2017, 06:43 PM

I agree with that - we'd have to spend around the fee we paid for Luka or a bit more.

Payroll Legend
15-05-2017, 06:46 PM
A fully match fit McArthur is a very good all round central midfielder. I'm not surprised Brighton are interested but I'd be absolutely amazed if Palace would let him go.

glenn.f
15-05-2017, 06:46 PM
There may be a few of our players that would be surplus to our requirements but Jimmy Mac isn't really one of them. However he may struggle to be first choice and may decide a move could be in his best interests. I think it would be foolish letting him go as a fully fit Macca still has a fair bit to offer, but the player will ultimately decide whether he fancies flitting in an out of the side. I for one hope he decides to give it another year at the least because he will cost a fair old whack to replace.

BuffotheEagle
15-05-2017, 07:01 PM
No way should we sell him. We're probably going to see quite a high turnover of players this summer and he shouldn't be one of them. A lot of people on here are so fickle, he comes back after months out injured and because he didn't quite hit the ground running he's now past it. Quality player, who was great before he got injured.
If a lot of you had your way we'd sell most of the squad and start again, I'm sure that would work out well.

I'd keep him for the same reason I'd keep Puncheon -to a certain extent, he is proven at this level. Yes, I absolutely want a better AM and CM but would keep those two around as reliable if not spectacular cover who at least can be relied upon to put a shift in.

It's amazing how players like Dann and McArthur -who were the two most consistently praised players we had, are now considered by many not good enough for even our squad. I'd think we'd want a far more successful season before believing we've gone to 'the next level' and can confidently dispense with their services.

Sorry for going off subject, but I can see Dann returning to form next season (depending on how often he plays). Both Tomkins and Kelly have made huge improvements under the new regime, can't see any reason why Dann won't either.

Would be left drastically thin in midfield. If he's off I'd want upwards of 10m for him.

15-05-2017, 07:38 PM
Given that the club will likely release Ledley, Flamini, and potentially sell Cabaye, it would be crazy to sell a very consistent, hard working, experienced and settled premiership standard midfielder like Jimmy Mac. Stranger things have happened, but would be very surprised (and disappointed, frankly)

There's probably about 20 players at the club we could upgrade on before we get to McArthur!

Upgrading in both talent and attitude wouldn't be easy.

Personally I think he's a great option. Maybe not a start every game of the season player but accounting for injuries he's the sort I'd happily count on to start 7-10 games plus make a number of sub appearances along the way to close out games.

Gave us exactly what we needed against Hull.

When he is fit, he is a quality player for us. He has been unfit recently after injury.

Brighton wouldn't cough up the 10m needed to sign him. I think that's what it would take.

A fit McArthur is a quality player for a mid table prem team. He would be absolute class for any of the promoted teams. Can't see us doing them any favours.

If we end up with a team where McArthur can justifiably sit on the bench every week next season then we've got half a chance of being in Europe.There is no way we should consider selling him.People wanting an "upgrade" are in cloud cuckoo land.

I guess in this market, a midfielder that can score 4/5 goals while missing a fair bit of the season will put the price up a bit. I know what you mean though, he's been played (quite successfully for a while) alongside Cabaye and although they weren't similar in style, they were too similar somehow. I'm not making sense am I?

I would keep. However he is of course going to be subject to speculation as he is one of the few premier league quality squad players we have (him, wickham, dann, schlupp/pva). The trouble of course is a midfield of him, cabaye and punch doesn't really work. I would think we do need a younger midfielder or two. With punch, mccarthur and cabaye all around the 30 mark.

The one thing to remember about livermore is he is a couple of years younger than mccarthur.

I'd sell him! Absolutely. Hitting 30, getting slower, getting injured more and more often....plus only has one more year on his current contract (i think).
This summer will be last opportunity to recoup any funds for him. (Sadly i doubt we will the 7-8m you are hoping for.

Sadly I think you might be right. Much like Darren Ambrose there comes a time where you've done a great job but its also time to go. If the fee is right and if we have a replacement lined up.

Considering the season we've just had with injuries, why on earth would we sell a solid Premier League player, just because he's not going to start every game?

Pretty much made the last goal Sunday. Once injured, he seems to take a few games to get back to 100%. I think he's a great player and would hate to see him go, let alone there.

Yes, Sunday reminded us he is still a good player, not a case of whether his legs had gone a bit aka Jedinak, and effectively he is Cabaye's shadow in my view...although when we had that good run at the start of the 2015/16 season it was the Cabaye/McArthur pairing that was so good for us

From where we are this would seem a stupid move but it all depends on who it's planned to bring in. Macca has proven he can compete at this level and after the summer, he will hopefully be back to his best form. Would be surprised if we don't keep him. Good professional.
