Here we go then.

What are your hopes?

Realistically I'd be happy with a first choice goalkeeper (Vorm?), a centre-half (Sakho?) and a striker (Tosun?).

If we end up with Hennessey still between the sticks and Sakho fails to sign it's going to be an incredibly grim day.

Over to you Jim.

Would go with that.

Would add replacement for any 1st teamer sold such as if Townsend left, and shift some of the deadwood like Mutch out on loan.

Hopes: Goalie, Sakho, winger, striker.

Expectations: Sakho, Tosun.

If we fail to stump up the cash for Sakho, then I can only assume the club are not prepared to invest in the club anymore and cut their losses. I've always assumed that our lack of activity was because we wanted to get this top-rate centre back into the club, so I will be very disappointed if it doesn't come off, with so many other decent centre backs seemingly being available to us for a lot less money.

A striker goes without saying though. We must get one. Don't know anything about this Tosun chap, so I hope we've done our homework on him and he isn't a panic buy.

Fifield says that we might add an out of contract keeper, so if that's true I don't expect that to happen today.

Hopefully Parish and co can surprise us with a proper keeper like Vorm and a winger/rwb. Maybe a Championship club will take someone of our deadwood off our hands, or at least loan and agree to pay a chunk of their wages - I'm looking at Ward, Kelly, Mutch, Lee, Puncheon, Sako. 2 or 3 of them departing might free up some wages for a nice surprise signing.

If reports are to be believed Tosun is presumably our striker target.

I fully expect the club to go in for Sakho, thats a defensive target.

I think there will be one more (I hope for more, but I doubt it without outgoings). No idea what position but I do not think it will be a Keeper.

My hopes?
- M. Sakho
- Gray (Maybe Townsend outgoing, I know what the reports say but this is a wishlist)
- Tosun (all my actual striker hopes seem to have already moved so just get one over the line really)
- Cillessen out of nowhere

Doesnt fill the RWB slot but im still hoping TFM can play there

Fingers crossed for Sakho, Tosun, Gray, a keeper and a RWB. Realistically we'll probably get 3 of those unless we sell a few (including Townsend unfortunately) Should be interesting either way.

Alright calm down, why are you the only person in the world posting Youtube links with a .be domain? I even went away to make sure and even the Belgian channels I found still use the .com

Cant really blame me for wanting to protect others when stuff looked suspicious

Don't get that. Just pasted the links from youtube via my android currently in Penge.

I think we'll end up loan-to-buy a GK from abroad.

Gregz41
31-08-2017, 12:47 AM
Hoping the plan is to go 433 long term now.

Close between ST and GK as priority for me, but Sakho would also be fantastic.

GK: Skorupski loan with option to buy
CB: Sakho
LW: Gray with Townsend going the other way
ST: Tosun providing the much needed competition to Benteke

Sell:
PVA - recoup some funds now that Souare is nearing fitness.
Townsend - If we can get Gray
Mutch, Sako & Lee if possible.

It'll just be Sakho.

If that's the result then Steve Parish needs to consider stepping down and handing over the reins to someone else.

WTF?

This isn't some kind of computer game.

We are a multi-million pound business and the Chairman doesn't resign simply because a punter like you doesn't like the results of the transfer window.

Think about what you wrie before you post GorBlimey.


The chairmean wentt mini viral with his version of Rappers Delight - managing Palace is exactly like any of us playing Championship Manager on the Amiga in 1990.

When there was no money in the championshup days he took the thing seriously and did the job that was required.

Now he is riding the ego boom and bust cloud in the Premierl. He has 12 hours to deliver or the seasons as good as fecked. A season he had all summer to prepare for.

At the moment he's all in holding two pair and waiting for the final card to be dealt with a low chance of scoring the full house.

A computer game is exactly what he is playing, albeit with real money and our future at stake.

Nothing at all you can say to defend him hides the reality of the situation. This is playing to the brink to a ridiculous degree. If it's on purpose it foolhardy, if not it's incompetence.

Is it too much to ask for there to be a reasoned response to opinions? It's all "******* hell" this "I've heard it all now" that. And then you want to appear as though you're the one being reasonable.

This isn't an isolated incident of stagnant performance by the leadership at Palace. Too often we're mucking about at the sharp end of the transfer window to ensure we have a squad that's fit for purpose. And while we muck about Huddersfield, Watford, West Brom and others look settled and they're cracking on with their season.

Most people accept that SP and the rest of CPFC2010 rode to rescue and did well to get us into the Premier League. And we have a couple of decent players now. But we haven't really progressed enough either in footballing terms or off the pitch in terms of infrastructure.

It's time to start thinking about progress.

FFS. It's clear that we massively overspent in Jan to stay up. We spent nearly 60M last season in transfer and fees.

Since we've decided rightly to keep Wilf we now have several players near or over the 100k a week mark. A squad that's too big with too much crap that we can't off load and a need to bring in three/four quality players.

There's only so much oink in the pig and SP has repeatedly said he won't run the club in a deficit. So I guess this is where we are. Bearing in mind we are trying to redevelop the training ground and have some wedge set aside for the main stand. The only really really stupid thing he's done is resign last season the shite defenders we are now trying to offload/replace.

West Brom have a new money bags owner. Watford have been doing dodgy semi lllegal rule bending for two seasons and Huddersfield well they are just doing what we did when we got promoted. More intelligently true but they have a klopp disciple and we had Holloway......

As good as he is i'd like to see him gone early today. Given up on the possibility of any wage-stealers going now. It'll be the decent ones like cabaye and townsend who get sold to finance improvements elsewhere i reckon. Not ideal at all to be losing first teamers whilst others arent fit for purpose, but we really need 4 or 5 players in key positions today. Thats a massive massive ask. Hopefully Dougie will get a deal involving Gray somehow to soften the blow.

Keeper
CB - has to be sakho
Winger
Striker
Right wing back

Securing anything less than four of these five will be failure but really we need all five positions strengthening.

My guess:

A young keeper who won't challenge Hennessey - ie not good
No right wing back so ward played out of position all season
Sakho to sign at 10pm
No winger
Some very average striker such as Niasse.

Hope this isn't the case as that would be a grim transfer window.

31-08-2017, 07:10 AM
Let's try and be positive today and if nothing good happens then we can pretend the world has ended tomorrow.

I'm predicting a Goalie, a reserve forward and a Centre Back. If we sell Townsend then we will get a replacement. Hoping for a few outgoings as well. Yes I know, very optimistic.

If we don't buy a striker today then I will lose all faith in management. We got ourselves into all sorts of trouble having only one left back last season and this is much much worse. We are relying on Benteke to not pick up an injury otherwise we are absolute bankers for relegation.

Without doubt we Will make signings today, but why oh why do we need to wait until the last minute especially when you still end up paying the original FULL asking price as in the case of Sakho(Liverpool) and panicked into bringing in a Striker that would Not have been your First choice Sakho (West Ham). These are players with fitness issues especially Sakho (striker) can/should we really afford to take that risk in signing potentially a crock, and especially having the equally risky Wickham as our cover strikers is a recipe for problems ahead.
This unfortunately is what happens when business is left until the last moment, panic sets in and players are bought through need and Not by choice, is it really a cost effective way to operate? when will we ever learn.
Last season ended on a high with survival and the thought of a good rebuilding ahead with Big Sam at the helm, then the Bombshell is dropped, and after an initial high with the appointment of FdB and what Might happen, sadly has been downhill since.
Hopefully we will all be uplifted today with a few surprise signings and spirits are lifted, as we have had enough of all the gloom of the past few weeks.

We have so much business to do we're setting ourselves up for disaster.

How we're even on deadline day with only one good premier league striker is pretty embarrassing.

We'll probably sign Sakho late on, and get a second rate striker. I'd be extremely disappointed if we only have Hennessy and Speroni in goal, we really need a keeper urgently. If we're persisting with this 343 a RWB is essential or that unbalance of Ward will take us down or get de boer the sack early. And I still think we need another winger, too much reliance on Townsend and Zaha.

Good thing about everyone being so negative, is that even if we only get a couple of signings today and a few out, expectations are so low that no one on here will be complaining tomorrow

Oh, we'll find something to complain about I'm sure. It's what we do. I personally think we will fail to get anyone in or out. Hope I'm wrong about incomers. Hope the outgoings aren't the likes of Cabaye!!:eek:

I think we will play 4 at the back so no WB required.

I think we may end up being stuck with Hennessy.

I reckon we will get Sakho and the Turkish striker

Yep. Think we need those two at the very least. Renders Franks formation and style pretty pointless though.

Think it'll be:
Out
Townsend
Kelly
Lee

In
Sakho
Sagna
Tosun
Adrian

Panic signing day should be avoided so I'm going out all day

When we secured Premier League status Parish said we could look forward to a fifth season in the Premier League and had eighty four days to plan how to break in to the top ten

Eighty three days have passes with nothing happening to show we are likely to stay in the top seventeen let alone break in to the top ten

Hopes of getting bargains on the final day ended after the silly money paid for Neymar Jnr by PSG. Fees have been ramped up since then so little chance of getting the five players we needed eighty four days ago

Goalkeeper: No 1 priority
RB/RWB
Central Defender
Winger/AM
Striker

Without doubt we Will make signings today, but why oh why do we need to wait until the last minute especially when you still end up paying the original FULL asking price as in the case of Sakho(Liverpool) and panicked into bringing in a Striker that would Not have been your First choice Sakho (West Ham). These are players with fitness issues especially Sakho (striker) can/should we really afford to take that risk in signing potentially a crock, and especially having the equally risky Wickham as our cover strikers is a recipe for problems ahead.
This unfortunately is what happens when business is left until the last moment, panic sets in and players are bought through need and Not by choice, is it really a cost effective way to operate? when will we ever learn.
Last season ended on a high with survival and the thought of a good rebuilding ahead with Big Sam at the helm, then the Bombshell is dropped, and after an initial high with the appointment of FdB and what Might happen, sadly has been downhill since.
Hopefully we will all be uplifted today with a few surprise signings and spirits are lifted, as we have had enough of all the gloom of the past few weeks.

How do some people on here simply not understand that we are NOT exactly an overly desirable club (on face value) for players to come to....

If we weren't in London; we'd have even greater problems attracting talent.

We simply have to wait for "bigger" clubs to complete their business before agents / our board can accurately assess who is and who isn't available.

The only reason a player would sign here early in the window, is if essentially we were the only one in for them, or the package we offered was far superior to that of any rival.

The last day of the window is going to be when it the final piece of business occurs for us, and firmly always will be. The board is clearly working on making this happen. Just because the signature is dated the 31st, doesn't mean we didn't commence the business weeks prior.

31-08-2017, 08:55 AM
We've already signed two centre backs, at the start of the window I don't think anybody was suggesting we should sign three, with no right backs, no wingers, no strikers and no keeper. To splash the rest of our budget on another centre-back (albeit a very good one!) suggests our business earlier in the summer was horrifically planned, we still need the above (RB, W, ST, GK) and we'll have two and sixpence to get them with.

What are your hopes?

Realistically I'd be happy with a first choice goalkeeper (Vorm?), a centre-half (Sakho?) and a striker (Tosun?).

If we end up with Hennessey still between the sticks and Sakho fails to sign it's going to be an incredibly grim day.

So where did clubs like Huddersfield, Watford, WBA, Burnley, Stoke, Brighton, Swansea and a few others go wrong? none classified as "big" but all able to conduct and conclude their business, whilst we keep thinking who we should be getting.
We can try to find every excuse under the sun for the lack of activity, when the truth is as per normal we keep dragging our feet and hope to pick up what we can at the last moment, it should not be how a premiership club should conduct business. But lets wait and see how things pan out today.

Not really. If the TV money already exceeds the amount you're allowed to spend on wages during a given season, then gate receipts don't matter, other than helping to fund transfer fees or non-football stuff.

Neither us or Bournemouth can magically add and fill 20,000 seats and therefore be able to increase our wage bill by more than 7m year-on-year, so they're pretty much in the same boat as us financially despite their tiny ground.

Of course their owners may well be more generous in terms of funding transfers out of their own pockets, as long as they don't lose 105m over three years they're ok under UEFA's rules too.

Tosun looking pretty likely now. Reckon he'll be eventually joined by Sakho - the Mangala deal our insurance policy if Sakho falls through.

Pleased we're getting rid of some of the deadwood. Hopefully Lee will follow Mutch and Joniesta. Kaikai, Ladapo, Anderson and Boateng all need to find clubs, but I think I'm right in saying Football League clubs can still loan Prem players outside of the window?

Hopefully we're saving about 50-70k in wages in letting these go. Would love a couple of surprise incomings if that's the case.

No you are not right. At 11pm no-one else moves, loan or sale in England.

Mutch and Williams at a guess then.

No surprises no-one wants any of our squad players on permanent deals - not good enough for the Premier League, too expensive for the Championship. I suspect we will see a lot of rebuilding taking place slowly as contracts expire!

Sakho deal seems to be creeping closer despite rumours of Mangala.

Besiktas have accepted our bid for Tosun. Just waiting on the player.

Niasse back-up plan if we fail to get Tosun.

Wayne Hennessey is going to be our goalkeeper forever.
Tosun deal may not be agreed as thought - report in Standard that they can't agree structure of payments.

On the rest of it I think we've still got another few hours of big transfers going through before we can move.

Glad I'm not watching Sky Sports right now. Simon Jordan getting a right slagging on social media and rightly so. He ran one club that he almost put out of business and hasn't been in or around the game since 2010. Why on earth would you have him on as a well-informed pundit with that CV? So many better people they could have on.

To be fair though, they've both spent a lot longer in and around the game than SJ, and both represented their country. He's just a chancer who hasn't been employed in football since 2010, just hears and sees the same as us these days but gets to use big words (badly) and advise clubs how they should be run, despite his own lack of success at it, on camera. It's embarrassing.

Chamberlain turned them down as he didn't want to play wing back, which is fair enough. Assume Barkley would turn them down as he's competing with Hazard in that no.10 role isn't he? If so, again fair enough
