Never heard of this fella before a couple of weeks ago. Seems a strange buy for Man City, a 25/26 year old from the Australian league, who, let's be honest, would never be a regular for them, certainly under Guardiola.

I guess they saw potential in the fee they would receive from him if they got him for a couple hundred grand and selling for 10m!

He's been tearing it up in the Championship for Huddersfield this season. I would say he was probably unlucky not to be up for Player of the Year from what I saw, which admittedly was only about 4 games.

Like a poster above I was puzzled when Man City signed this guy and TBH even after his good season I am still unsure why they would bought him. If he was 17 or 18 it would make sense. He has something about him but surely not enough to get close to Man City's second 11 even? Difficult to tell but when I have seen him play for his country he looks like he lacks pace? In a way he reminds me of that Aussie we had, Nick Carle. He has made the transition easily but there is a big jump to the Premiership.

Back in Australia, he was at Melbourne City (which is owned by the same folks who own Man City) so he was really only ever going to go to Europe via Man City.

Player of the Year for the team that finished fifth in the Championship would probably suggest he's above average tbf. I think we need a couple of players with something to prove, he looks like he can handle it imo. The other factor is those pesky Australians tend to have a strong winning mentality, look at the cricket, rugby, athletics...

Aaron Mooy would be an excellent addition to the squad, we need better support for the midfield than what we have currently. Chances are we will release/sell 2 possibly 3 midfielders, so bring in Mooy and if we can also add Loftus-Cheek aswell will be good business.

Like we have Jordan Mutch? Many clubs will have a handful of overage players who don't make the 25 due to injury or last minute/Jan window signings. Or are you saying there ought to be a limit on the number of overage players that are not in the 25?

Mr Palace
17-05-2017, 08:29 AM
I've seen him twice this season and he's a tidy player but a bit crab like. He retained possession well but lots of sideways/backwards passes - not always a bad thing but I didn't get the impression he would be an upgrade on what we have. He's definitely got potential though.

Will Hughes has been "highly rated" for ages but no Premier League has picked him up. Probably a reason for that.

He's still young, but I dont think anybody should have picked him up. He should be doing what he is doing, and that is playing regularly and learning the game at a reasonably high level.

I think he also had a bad injury last year, something that can also stunt development.

Looking forrward to see whether he'll go the way of Alli, Huddlestone or Kris Commons.

Like we have Jordan Mutch? Many clubs will have a handful of overage players who don't make the 25 due to injury or last minute/Jan window signings. Or are you saying there ought to be a limit on the number of overage players that are not in the 25?

Thought Jordan Mutch was in the 25 man squad? Even if not, then yes I'm saying is that happens for more than 1 half season 25 man squad list, without serious injury as the only exception (ok aybe Sakho drugs thing too) then they should no longer be able to hold the player's registration. Of course then you'd need some rules on how the player could sign elsewhere within the next week.

So yes I am saying there should be a limit. Because outright capitalism dictates Chelsea will just buy many players, steal EPPP young ones, sign Hector's ahead of a Palace and never play them. Can't be good for the player, international teams or equality in the game. Just go on Wikipedia and look at the ages, caps and otherwise experience of the Chelsea players out on loan. It is insane these guys are being allowed to stay at Chelsea. They will never play for them, but would be valuable elsewhere and make the league more competitive.

He would make an excellent addition for the squad especially if he could be bought for around 5m. Without doubt we will be offloading midfield players like Flamini, Lee, Mutch, Ledley, Jonny Williams? and possibly a First teamer like Cabaye or McArthur may be used to raise capital for the kitty.
That is a lot of seldom used players that will need replacing, the players i would like to see brought in is Loftus-Cheek (probably loan) Artur, Mooy, and Garcia from City, would balance the squad with youth and quality.

You can't be serious... naming Williams as one of our 25 would be pissing away a spot. If he hadn't come through the youth setup here there is no way you would advocate keeping him on, too small, too lightweight, too fragile and his best days are about 5 years behind him. Time to ship him out for good, unfortunately we won't get a fee for him anymore though, who'd risk the money, makes Kieron Dyer look like Rocky

If Kai Kai can only get 20 minutes in a dead rubber final game of the season, I don't know what the rest of our academy products must be thinking but Williams is far older than them now. The sooner he signs permanently for Ipswich the better for both us and him.

There must be a good reason that Jonny Williams has been ignored by so many managers over the seasons. He's one of our better products for sure, and perhaps that's why we (the fans) hold him in such high esteem. I just hope our supporters aren't doing the same with Sullay Kaikai. He's 21 approaching 22 in August and we all saw that the youngsters of Manchester United's academy are way above the standard of our's.

It's nice to see a wilf Zaha, a Nat Clyne, and a very few others come up through the ranks every decade or so, but we're way behind having an academy regularly producing good players. IMO, we would be far better off looking at other teams youngsters and pulling a few of them in our direction if they appear to be diamonds in the rough as our academy is very costly and isn't producing.:love:

See my thread on Puncheon, a Palace Legend, if you don't think I can be objective. He is more suited to the Premiership than the Championship. He's mobile, can carry the ball, gives 100% and has excellent vision. Not saying he'd be in my XI. A squad of 24 would be fine anyway. He'd be a bonus if he could somehow stay fit.

If Williams only appears in Cup games then he doesn't have to be in the PL 25.

We cannot loan him out for a couple of months. It has to be for a half season or full season unless we are loaning him to the Conference or lower. If we loan him out there's no point in putting him in the PL 25.

There's not much recent evidence that Williams is an upgrade on anybody in our current squad.

I'm in two minds about Mooy. I didn't think he was seen as strong enough to be a regular this season. It might ruffle a few feathers but I wouldn't buy anybody who wasn't the finished item. Our Under 21 team doesn't play strong enough opposition to get a player up to speed. Unless we go down the Brentford route, scrap the Academy and play high profile B Team friendlies.

He only needs to be as good as what Sako is now after a few years of barely playing. Or Lee etc. The bar tends to be set higher for kids for some reason which is mental.

More goals in league 1 than Lookman and from the wing at a worse team remember. Kane didn't do great on loan though and look at him.

4 goals and 7 assists from an AM isn't exactly tearing it up Up until this season, Wilf's goal and assist stats were consistently shit, but that doesn't mean he wasn't a hugely influential player for us. Same with Bolasie. A player's value can not be gauged through stats alone. Mooy has been central to the success Huddersfield have had under Wagner and routinely helped dictate games for them.

I've seen a fair but of him and trust me, he's a good player. Player of the season for a side one game away from reaching the Premier League. I had no idea we were actually interested in him, but I've hoped we'd sign Mooy for awhile now.

Jedi is finished. Zero pace, poor awareness and passing was shit. Few nice tackles but that was it really.

Mooy is a good player, but not for me. Need someone with pace in the #10 which he hasn't got. Good vision, passing and dead ball but not got enough of what we need to be

Agree. On that performance he is not as good as Punch. Created nothing, lost the ball a lot, and for a "midfield metronome" didn't make himself available and dictate the play. Less movement and energy off the ball than MacArthur. He moves the ball on quickly when he gets it but it often went backwards and he showed no more creativity than Puncheon. Looked like he would be an expensive squad filler for us.

This is spot on for reasons given.
He never did play with pace much more picking up the pieces type and playing the pass more his style of play, he is a player that i liked when watching Huddersfield earlier in the season, and feel would make a good squad addition for Palace possibly needing time before breaking into the First team.
I can see him signing for Huddersfield now.

"The Pasty Pirlo" would be a good signing.

As much as I despise the empire he is a part of with the City Group etc.

He would be a handy acquisition for us. I'd be happy if the deal was outright, jettisoning him from the City Group outright. Him signing for Palace in this manner would personally make it easier for me to forget his time playing for the scummy Melbourne branch of the City Group empire.

If Delph really is available for 12-13m then I would much rather have him. Not convinced about Mooy at all and have that bad feeling he would struggle to get on the subs bench by the end of a season at the top level.

A top player can play in the middle without pace using a combo of his skill, smarts and creativity but Mooy looks fairly average on all of those. Hard working maybe but not enough. I think Macca is significantly better - covers twice as much ground and I suspect edges him on speed which is a concern because Macca isn't fast either.

So bring in Delph and leave Mooy alone.

We'd all like it to be different. But it really is simple, when they are good enough, they will play.

If they are exceptional they will play at 16/17 and never go on loan
If they are very good, they will play after a possible loan or 2 or when an opportunity comes up.
If they are just good they will potentially need more loans and then take an opportunity when it arises a little later.

You bang the drum regarding Harry Kane, being young and proven good enough when given a chance, to prove your point in every post on this subject, but he's just 1 against literally hundreds, yearly, who go against your theory and are not deemed good enough for the level they are at.

The professionals know better than you, you might not like that, but that's why you put together podcasts, and they are paid millions a year to make the decisions on whom is good enough.

Really isn't much of a risk buying the best from the Championship for under 10mil.

Oh really? Cambell (gone now), Mutch, Sako and Lee have all been considered the best players in that division in their careers, yet are clearly not good enough at this level. The risk? We have these players on our wage bill and can't offload them because nobody wants them or aren't willing to match the wages they're currently on, prohibiting us from making further additions because we can't increase the wage bill (FFP), not necessarily because we don't have the transfer funds.

None of those players you named I would consider ever being close to top 3 over an entire season.

Mooy was arguably the best player from the Championship last season.

Think I read yesterday that Huddersfield also had the youngest ever Premier League opening day XI against us - with an average age of 25.

Not only has Wagner done exceptionally to get them promoted but to do so with such a young squad is fantastic long term planning from him/the owners. Really think they will stay up this year.

He was but I would say strikers are riskier than creative midfielders though.

Very impressed with Huddersfield's preparations for surviving long-term in the Premiership ,
They also have the bonus of a relatively new stadium that only need tweaking for the Premiership media and heated pitch etc ,

I wish them the best of luck as they deserve huge reward for their foresight and long-term planning , As you say their young and talented squad boosted by sensible buys in June/July puts them in a good stead even if they are relegated, Which I think is unlikely .

Mooy was arguably the best player from the Championship last season.

As the poster above said there was also Bamford, who actually won Championship player of the year.

Mutch was highly thought of in the Championship and even had an excellent season with Cardiff in the Prem. Then got a move to QPR and then we signed him. Campbell was one of the best if not the best striker when he played in the Championship, and had a few decent seasons in the Prem.

Lee played in the Championship for 3 or 4 season with Bolton and had registered the most assists in the entire football league in that time frame. He was rated extremely highly, Bolton fans love him, and was one of the best creative midfielders in the division.

Sako likewise, who was in the Championship team of the year the season before joining, and had scored 15 goals. He was the best winger in the division that year, and great the season before that too. Even Ince was found out at this level. Didn't particularly convince me when we played Huddersfield either.

Not sure why you think strikers are "riskier" than creative midfielders in terms of stepping up a division. For every Bamford and Campbell there's a Mutch, Lee, and Sako. Murray and Gayle aren't quite good enough for this level either (imo), but excellent Championship players.

I can even think of other, non-Palace examples such as Almen Abdi and Matej Vidra, the latter won Championship player of the year, who are great players in the division below but nowhere near good enough at Prem level.

Face it, getting the best players from the Championship isn't as great an idea as many think. Mooy is an exception, although still early doors. Trippier is an exception, as is Bolasie, but there aren't too many.
