Was bit concerned when he wasn`t shown on Palace website training . I had heard he always gets niggles - good as he is if he isn't going to play regular then a bit of a waste . Tomkins - words fail me .

RLC does seem a bit injury prone but we knew from the start that Tomkins would miss too many games - can't build a team around players like that. RLC was our main hope of anything tomorrow.

Always a bright side. Perhaps he can do a dump in front of the HFs to get them to cheer him on as he is such a favourite. Look forward to lots of finger pointing and failure to get a shot on target.

RH: We will go to Old Trafford with a belief that we can get a result and I know this group will have the confidence for sure.

RH: Freddie Ladapo has been training with the group whilst I have been here. He is in the frame for a place in our situation.

RH: There could be more pain ahead but we wont be fazed as we work on our task that we have ahead of us as a group.

RH: United have a very strong squad but we will be looking to give them a good game and hope for any good luck that is around.

He deserves sacking if he plays Puncheon over Riedewald.

He's only got two more games left before we all call for his head.. performance against Southampton was woeful and we fell apart against Man City. Goals conceded even worse than FdB and chances created less as well, yet he's inherited virtually the same team from Big Sam as FdB did. Tactic's and team selection all over the place, how can you drop Puncheon FFS

....I'm sort of joking of course!

Mr Palace
29-09-2017, 12:40 PM
This is awful bad luck combined with the inept planning we already know about.

This is why I get frustrated when some on here say we have a great first XI. I doubt there will ever be a time when we field that team for more than a game or two at best. We seem to consistently pick up niggling injuries and we're also being hit with some big impact ones. We can't cope with 5-6 players out, especially of the quality of attacking player we have missing.

I think it has to be about damage limitation tomorrow. Luka, Riedewald and Cabaye in central midfield with Schlupp and Townsend in support of Sako.

Our resources really are threadbare sadly. Just got to hope that we keep it competitive like we did for the first 44 minutes last week and build from here. Must avoid an early goal against us.

How is it not bad luck?

Benteke getting injured = very bad planning. RLC and Tomkins are in the most covered areas of the team and so it is far from 'bad planning'.

Anyway - Man U and Chelsea have to be viewed as 'free hits' where anything out of either game is a bonus. Rather have a fully fit squad for the games where getting something is much more achievable.

jaspercpfc
29-09-2017, 01:11 PM
My hunch is Loftus Cheek hasn't fully recovered from his earlier injury and because he's missing ineligible to play at Chelsea in a fortnight coupled with the international break he now has 3 weeks full recovery to bring him up to speed. In essence he could be our key player alongside Wilf once he's back.
People bemoan our bad luck, injuries are part and parcel it just so happens we've lost all our top players and our inept preparation has caught up with us. We are getting everything we deserve at the moment.

Martin H
29-09-2017, 01:13 PM
Zaha, Benteke, Loftus-Cheek, Timbo. For me probably our 4 of our 6 best players all out of the ManU match plus Tomkins and Wickham. Sheesh it's good here isn't it.

I have to say, I am impressed with Mr Hodgson's fortitude, faced with this situation. He appears to be gritting his teeth and sticking with his routines, and deserves a major change in fortune pretty soon. Good on him, I say.

Makes perfect sense. Get the niggles out of the key players so they are fresh after the international break.

I wouldn't risk Wilf in the next two even if he thinks he's fit. I hope Sakho doesn't pick up anything in the next two (apart from the match ball, obviously).

It's getting to comical proportions now. After we stayed up last season I was quite optimistic. Same the season we finished with Pulis.

Even thought I thought FDB was an odd pick, I still thought we might do ok.

Now I just have to laugh. We are at least setting records. Not scoring for six games is some achievement. I mean you wouldn't be able to do that if you tried, you'd normally get a deflection or own goal or just other team taking their foot off the pedal so much that you get one near the end.

Quite simply this is one continuous sh*t show which can all be traced back to that useless narcissistic twat Pardew. People blame SP but he backed Pardew and just about everything he did in the transfer market is at the root of our problems.
Not good enough in CYL and Mutch, sick notes in Tompkins Sako and Wickham, not wanting to be here in Mandana and continuous questions over Bentekes attitude. Only Cabaye escapes unscathed.

That's the great thing about Pardew. He doesn't just screw over teams, he leaves a long standing rot that goes on and on. Maybe Sky could get him to do that dance he does at the end of every show. Utter tosser, and one of the worst managers I've ever seen.

We need to go some to beat the record for most ever consecutive losses as Sunderland did 15. I think we have a chance though. Keep the faith.

Not trying to detract from blaming Pardew..... and whilst I agree that's when it stems back to, apart from the 5 months after that window whereby we were 5th before it all fell apart (IMO due to not doing anything to maintain that start in Jan), by all accounts, CYL, Mutch, Sako were all SP 'signings', Wickham was on our radar prior to Pardew even joining, Mandanda wasn't signed by Pardew/Woodman or them even informed (seemingly well versed posters on these boards have confirmed that).

That leaves Benteke, which tbf, was the exact type of striker we needed a year earlier when we sent Murray on loan, and before we signed Wickham.

If Pardew signed and proposed the players we were signing, what the heck was Tim Coe doing exactly?

I'm all for blaming Pardew for loads, but I am not sure player recruitment was all down to him, it seems anyone we bought that fails, is down to him, yet our Head of Recruitment has proposed no-one at all, let alone a failure.

That's the great thing about Pardew. He doesn't just screw over teams, he leaves a long standing rot that goes on and on. Maybe Sky could get him to do that dance he does at the end of every show. Utter tosser, and one of the worst managers I've ever seen.

The RLC injury just about sums up our luck right now.

Not that we deserve any or haven't had our fair share in the past.

RLC has played in 22 Premier League games for Chelsea since his debut in 2014 . He has played in 4 out of 6 for us . I remember some panellist saying RLC is 21 now and should have gone out on loan somewhere a couple of seasons ago as his body is going to take time adjusting to the intensity of Premier League .

A lot has been made of us having gone 6 games without scoring but as much a worry is that it is also 6 games without a clean sheet . As Allardyce always said ` keep a clean sheet and you will not lose `

It's getting to comical proportions now. After we stayed up last season I was quite optimistic. Same the season we finished with Pulis.

Even thought I thought FDB was an odd pick, I still thought we might do ok.

Now I just have to laugh. We are at least setting records. Not scoring for six games is some achievement. I mean you wouldn't be able to do that if you tried, you'd normally get a deflection or own goal or just other team taking their foot off the pedal so much that you get one near the end.

It's very Palace !

It really is a shambolic embarrassment that every time we have an injury we barely have a viable alternative to slot in.

Shameful stuff after 4 years in this league.

Spot on. But the usual suspects will 'put you right' no doubt.

Difficult to see where goals are to come from without Zaha , RLC and no recognised striker . Whatever combination we have in midfield , none have that extra pace or strength to really hurt opposition . Cabaye , Puncheon , McArthur are all neat tidy players but just lack that bit extra to hurt opposition . Maybe Riedewald will be given a chance . Lets hope we can be nice and compact and somehow grind out a result .

You sort of become proud of the record.. I would be strangely dissapointed if we lost 4-1 and score a late consolation. Much better to keep the record going :supergrin:

Also the record is the thing that highlights beyond any doubt whatsoever that the board got the summer recruitment completely wrong. There is no room for hard luck stories in this level of failure. Yup we only have one striker and yup we might need to get over it.. but i bet there is no chance of winging the second half of the season with so few attacking players. Well not unless they are prepared to admit they gave up on staying up in december.

Add a genuine striker and that's play-offs/promotion in the Championship imo.

If the back four have a good day and whoever's up front works their bollocks off, we could be okay. Midfield's been far worse since we've been promoted. My biggest worry, is if/when we go one down, their heads drop - some of our players have been a bag of nerves since Christmas 2015, and if we stand any chance of staying up this season they need to find some mental strength and resilience.

It's never been about the first team, it's the lack of depth in the squad. I'd be disappointed if we didn't win the championship title with that team. Although I'd expect Cabaye and Townsend to be off and probably sakho.

A mate of mine who supports Chelsea said that RLC has long-running problems with his back that will hurt his career long term and probably shorten his career considerably.

I almost wonder whether he might over-compensate for it which is causing other injuries now.

I wouldn't mind knowing where this free squad place striker is.

It looks very much as though Palace aren't goint to bother. As in, they actually can't be bothered to get one in or get in another player of any position to make up the 25.

I get the idea, ad SP will say this for sure, that there is no point paying wages to get someone that doesn't add anything to what we already have. BUT, we have a manager, and two pretty well renumerated recruitment people. They'd bloody well better get someone in.

Yep. If we had signed another striker, attacking midfielder and winger over the last 18 months like we should've done then we wouldn't be in this mess. Instead we have given new contracts to people who don't deserve them such as Puncheon, Hennessey and Williams and as a result the squad is one of the worst in the league.

It would be reassuring financially if that was the case, but we paid £26m for him presumably not all up front but spread over a couple of years (or more). If we get relegated his value will take a hit, and there was exactly a queue of clubs for him this season. Add in his massive salary, which must in the region of Benteke and Zaha, and that becomes a real problem. If we can offload him, we could end up paying a substantial part of his wages for the remaining three years of his contract.

Sounds very much like Dougie is working in this according to Roy. Cliche I know but the player does need to be decent enough to actually be worth playing and fit in with whatever the wage budget constraints may be.

Problem is when you get to that lower level then you play against lower ability players. Those lower ability players make up for that by kicking, stopping and generally mixing it up.

Cabaye, for example, would be bullied at that level.

This is true, and I realised that when i posted, my point was that the team posted isn't a team that would struggle in the Championship as was suggested.

If we go down we'll lose Wilf, Cabaye will go regardless, Sakho, Benteke, Townsend, Milivojevic and Tomkins will probably go back to West Ham. Although I haven't seen much of them, some of the academy players could come through.

Cabaye was Prem class once upon a time - not now. Not tracking Davis into the box for Southampton's goal was unforgivable for a player playing park football, never mind one of his experience and on his wage. If I was the manager I would've hauled him off by his ear after that.
