Can we have 3 players on loan from the same club?

how do you know that? seems unlikely given that vaesen wants to keep his family in birmingham...?

Yes there is a maxium allowed for loaning players not sure what it is but I think its 4/5

Would be very good if true. I'd be pleased with the fact that 'when' Morrison gets injured we can 'loan' him back. Vaesen is a geezer.

Dont belive this one where has it come from? Does anyone know the rules on loan players in premier I thought it was only two players per season could be wrong

On the surface it sounds impossible, but it actually could make some sense. Palace picks up the full wages for both Vaesen (2nd or 3rd choice keeper at Brum) and Morrison (injury-plagued right now and might be on the bench when fit).

Those two players would mean more to Palace this season and would probably get more playing time than they would at Brum.

Seems funny though, Clinton says to Brucie, Oi Brucie get my mate Jules up here he's well good, Brucie says yeah alright Clint, then Clint says to Jules eh rudeboy I put a word in wiv the gaffer up here he'll offer you a contract innit, Jules says to Clint ah wickedsta, then Brucie says to Jules oi you wanna play up here with your mate Clint, and Jules says yeah sweet innit, then Jules phones Clint and says wicked mate I'm signin a contract tomorrow but I'll pretend I haven't for a couple of months then Clint says wicked. Then Jules finally gets up there and says alright Clint, and Clint says alright Jules glad your finally here, oh wait hang on a sec I'm off to Palace I'll seeya later bred :hi:

THIS IS NOT TRUE

You can only sign one loan player from a single Premier League club and each Premier club can only have 2 premier league loan signings. So you could have one from Blues (Cisse) and say one from Arsenal or Liverpool but you couldnt' have 2 from Birmingham.

Plus I know Nico and he's here to fight for his place at Blues.

erm... sorry to disappoint you lot, but it's only one player loaned from any premiership club, but then you can have foreign loans and lower divisions as well (4?)

Morrison would be a good signing for you though I think, but not as good as.....



KANU :D

Kanu is easily gonna be the biggest flop of the season, especially with the motivation of knowing he's playing for West Brom. How much are you over paying that lazy waste of space?

:hi:

not a lot really, we have a really tight wage structure, our first season in the premiership we had the lowest wage bill in the league and it was half that of the 19th placed team, and it hasn't been increased too greatly in the last 2 years, I think Kanu is on about 15k a week tops, which when you consider we didn't pay anything for him, even if he does flop it will not cripple the club financially.

He certainly has the potential to be a fantastic signing, but it all depends on his attitude and also the service we give him. The signing of Gera should improve this but I can't see Gera playing regularly until christmas time (megson did the same with koumas in his first season).

This rumour Is absolute crap It came from a mistake on the Palace world site when on the squad list under Vaesen and Grays name they wrote "loan from Birmingham" there was another thread on It a couple of days ago but I can't find It now. Palace world who updates the website even admitted In a e-mail that It was a mistake on the part and have now corrected It.

If I was you mate I'd give your mate a slap for talking such bullshlt

Morrison would make a good back up striker. Did'nt do much for Birmingham last season even though he was injured for some of that campaign.
I believe you should never go back for players that have left. How many players can you name that have come back & been better than when they left?
Vassen served us well last season & could be good for us, but he will stay at Birmingham.

Why would we want to loan in Clinton Morrison, an injury prone player who has shown over the last couple of seasons that he is not Premiership quality? He didn't want us when this big shot Charlie left us, we shouldn't want him now we are a bigger club? He is obviously not the eight million pound strike some optimistic souls on the BBS wanted us to believe when he was on his way to Birmingham.

He wasn't Premiership quality when he was with us, but excellent in the First Division.

Sign him permanently so that we have him in case we go down, but don't bring him in for a season so he can bigger off when we get relegated.

As for Nico, if he wanted to live down souf he would have signed permanently in the summer.

Having heard Terry Byfield on BBC London radio announce personally that we had sealed the deal for Cisse, it obviously means "the player has heard of Crystal Palace FC".

But not Chrystal Palace FC?! As for going in
for Morrison, this sounds like a desperation
move. Would only be in favour of say a 2 yr
deal to buy him (like Cisse's at Pompey) pro-
vided he agreed to stay with Palace if we
get relegated. As you suggest there are
big question marks over his fitness and ability
to cut it at Premier League level, although he
has a proven scoring record one division
lower. Perhaps it could be called a "loyalty"
clause or something similarly groundbreaking
in modern football!

Absolute rubbish (I hope). I would want Vaeson but he chose security of a new contract AND not having to be away fom or move his family and as for Morrison why the hell do we want him? he left us when we needed him most to fulfil his personal ambitions when he was advised by everone at palace that it was too early for him to make the step up.Clinton Morrisons biggest fan is Clinton Morrison. Theres one thing having belief in yourself and even having a tinge of arrogance but Morrison scores a tap in and pronounces himself the new Pele! He scored a lot of goals for us while he was with us and of course I'm grateful for that but hes not a team player and promotion is the big oppertunity to move on and progress not go back

It also says we're going back for Allback.

http://www.tribalfootball.com/august/englsnews090804.html

Id be happy with that: morrison, johnson, allback, torghelle, freedman and shipperly as our forwards. With shipperly possibly leaving.

Although he improved under dowie I dont think hes good enough. To be able to survive in the premiership we need to have the best players we can get/afford in each position along with the players already in our squad that are good enough. I think that torghelle, johnson, allback, morrsion and freedman all match that wheras shipperly doesnt.

Tony Montana

I have heard on fairly good authority, that morrison is coming back on a 1 year loan with a view to a permanant move if we stay in the premiership.

weve had all summer were we could have gone back in for clint and he might have been interested , would you say this is a sign dowie is getting a bit desperate to find people who wanna come in.
as we play with wingers we need a centre forward in the side , clint isnt really that.

Rasheed Harkouk
09-08-2004, 10:50 AM
But Clinton does hold the ball up well, rarely loses possession of it and can put in a good cross when out there. A real poacher, would rather have him here than playing against us.

Ralph
09-08-2004, 10:55 AM
HE's a proven first division striker who I genuinely thought would make the step up, hopefully a change of scenary will do it for him.

I still believe he would be as likely as Fuller, Earnshaw, Forster to make it in the Premier. Bruce has rated him, he's great for Ireland and the Brum fans seem to like despite a poor record for them.

I for one will certainly be "interested" to see if he comes back. Him and AJ would certainly win us a few points Im sure!

cpfc_spc1982
09-08-2004, 10:58 AM
who offers more then torghelle or clinton ?

ozeagle
09-08-2004, 11:03 AM
aj is a far better player.

Rasheed Harkouk
09-08-2004, 11:03 AM
It's not about who offers more, it's about strength in depth. A.J and Torghelle on field and Clint on the bench looks a potent front line to me, with Dougie and Shipps hovering in the background. Dougie as a second choice premier striker isn't what you'd be hoping for.

cpfc_spc1982
09-08-2004, 11:08 AM
id say its more important we have a strong-ish first team than loads of squad players , the fitness regime we have players should be capable of playing every game maybe the odd resting and the obvious injuries i guess. top players and professionals more often than not dont like being rested as well.

nookiebear
09-08-2004, 11:10 AM
Can I just ask two things

Why are people having such a pop at Ben H? Why is the return of Morrison, either on a loan or permanently, such a ridiculous notion?

Can anyone clear up the loan rule thing? How many players can you loan from one club?

If it is one, then of course we can loan him back because the Cisse deal fell through, so again - why is the rumour so ridiculous?

I would welcome him back, a great 18-yard box player, would complement AJ, Freedman and Torghelle brilliantly

Rasheed Harkouk
09-08-2004, 11:12 AM
But with the pace of todays game those 3 useable subs can play a crucial part in the outcome of any game. With Clinton on the bench i'd think we stood a greater chance of turning a game around. Also A.J was run into the ground last season and when he hits the deck hard as a guy with his pace and trickery often does to have Clinton in the wings would give us at least another option and save A.J some extra grief. Lets face it if anything happened to A.J outside of the transfer window we'd be screwed BIG TIME!

KungFuCharlie
09-08-2004, 11:14 AM
Why would Clint want to sit on our bench instead of theirs though?

AJ isn't a far better player, just a very different one. But you couldnt play the two together. I like Clint, but I don't see how he would fit in with the way we play, unless we got a good attacking midfielder.

nbrookes
09-08-2004, 11:14 AM

Because he would spend less time on our bench, because he always wanted to play for palace in the premiership, because he isn't that keen on birmingham

totally disagree. Clint holds the ball up and plays other in better than alot of so called 'target men'. He would be an ideal foil for AJ.

Couldn't see him working exclusively with A.J, i think the big man (Torghelle, Ships) would always be the ideal partner but there are times when we might play with either Morrision or A.J wider and taking injuries and suspensions into account i would imagine Clinton would get a good few starts and who knows, at this level he might be better than A.J.

to do that clinton would need good service , which i cant see our strikers getting rather than balls up at 7 foot in the air or something which the target man can control or flcik on. also with our wingers who should be looking to box it alot , how effective would clinton be in the box with his head?

It is true that Clint holds the ball up very well. But that isnt that important with our style of play. Ships did so well with AJ cos of his ability to flick on, and then AJ's pace did the rest. Like I said, we play down the wings, so Clint would be useful in laying off long balls to the wingers, but if its only him and AJ in the box then we are not gonna score many goals. If we had a decent attacking mid who would benefit from Clints lay-offs then maybe, just maybe the two could work. But I seem to remember our away game at Spurs when AJ was silent due to the sheer size of the Spurs centre backs.

"I can't believe that any true Palace fan would not be delighted to see Morrison back"

- Why does the return of an old player always have to be turned into a sentimental rather than a pure footballing decision??? Granted, we will need a lot more strength in depth, and I would be happy to see him back at Selhurst, but that brings me back to the question of whether or not he would be happier on our bench than Brums.

No, I totally agree with you that were AJ to get injured then CLint would be a more than sufficient replacement. BUT, my point returns to whether he would like to sit on the bench while AJ wasn't injured. I said I would happily have Clint back, all I was really trying to say was that he would not be 'the perfect foil for AJ' as some others have suggested.

I'd be delighted if Clinton came back. I've only met him once, several months after he joined Brum and from what he told me, he left Palace with a very heavy heart and as Dave said, playng for Palace in the Premiership was his dream. I really believe Clinton back in the Palace side would cut it in the Premiership, despite being very luke warm with Brum. Some players are just like that. Dougie has never done anything of note apart from in a red and blue shirt.

From what I know, having met him (and from what his mum once told me), and from what SIKO and others have pointed out, he loved his time at Palace, so who's to say he wouldn't want to come back?

He would also stand a good chance of being one of our first-choice strikers. Unlike AJ and Sandor, he has two-seasons' worth of Premiership experience and is an established Repulic Of Ireland international

Again, I'm not saying this will happen, but can't believe so many people think it's that ridiculous a rumour

As a general rule I'm always very wary about seeking to bring back former players after they've left the club. But this might be the exception. Clinton's heart was in Palace in a way it has never been for Brum. Also, Dougie has never been quite the same player since their partnership was broken, and I always had a feeling that there was a real synergy there - playing together they amounted to more than the sum of their two halves. So Clinton's return might just mean that we get more out of Dougie too. Rather than see the question as being "who is in the starting lineup" I wonder if we might see the development of two different but complementary strike parings: AJ/Torghelle and Dougie/Clinton. Could be quite tasty!

Did you see Sandor play on Saturday? If he plays I'll get behind him, but he looked bloody awful. Off the pace, no touch and clearly frustrated at his inability to get into the game. I'm sure he will improve, but if Clinton came there is no way he would start behind Sandor on current form.

The TB comment is stupid and you know it!

He wouldnt start in place of AJ, or Torghelle IMO and history proves that Dougie is a better player than him in the premiership.

How do you know what Clinton's 'current form' is?

Thought Torghelle played well personally and with a bit of match shrpness will be a good asset. Potentially the best atacking header of a ball at the club since Mark Bright.

From our point of view he is a known quantity, a proven goal scorer and we know his game style, we need more firepower and the lad has it.

From Birminghams point of view Clinton hasn't been the success they thought he would be, he's way down the pecking order there now with Forssell, Heskey and John infront of him at least and with them shippin gout Cisse as well as some other fringe players maybe Brum are cutting their costs a little and Clinton off the books for a year would be another step down that line.

While i agree that palace need the proverbial target man, a foil for AJ with which he works best, i feel that although clint isnt the biggest of chappies in the traditional target man role. I do remember that he was one of the best players at holding the ball up that i have seen in a palace shirt. paticually with his back to goal he almost never lost the ball. He won his fair share of flick on's and remember the partnership he had with MF at the palace, was nothing short of prolific. Same at brum, although clint didnt get many goals, he still played well and was crucial in MF getting the goals he did. I would welcome clint back with open arms, and i'm not usually keen on seeing former players return but in this case........

Saying that i would still really like to see harewood at the palace.

Of course I'll give him a chance. Didn't you see the bit where I said I'd get behind him, if he plays. I'm just saying he did not look good to me on Sat. Hopefully he will settle in and become a decent player for us, but we should be able to express an opinion that a player has played poorly without being jumped on.

My guess is that Dowie is pulling out the stops to get a proven striker, preferably with premiership experience to start on Saturday. Clinton would fit the bill for me.

Sandor was poor for the first twenty minutes or so but after that he was improving almost moment by moment, by the time he and AJ were taken off there were definite signs of understanding. Several times he put the ball in a space and AJ went for another, he won a number of flick on, but nobody read them. I think because we know AJ it was easy to blame Sandor, but in fact it was just lack of familiarity, nobodies fault they just need practice.

I don't think anybody comes to a club as "first choice" (please note Mr Murphy) he comes to make the squad stronger and take it from there. If Clinton returns it is all about extra strength, more options. If we played (for example) AJ and Sandor for a few games, then switched to Dougie and Clinton for a few it would be one more unpredictable element to the games.

At this rate Derry will get a game as well. Then we'll be banging in them corners like there's no tomorrow.

In the light of Daddy Long's earlier 'sex wee' post, the added knowledge that he is 'glistening' is too much information.

Clinton wouldnt come back if he aint guaranteed 1st team football, seeing as Torghelles here......... and i also couldnt see Brum giving him away, that would only leave them with 3 strikers... Forssell, Heskey and John.... i think?

Sorry Skate or whatever your name is but the reason we sold Clinton Morrison was because he asked to leave. The fact that we got £4.5m for him was because understanderbly Jordan would have sold him to ANYONE in the prem as long as it did'nt begin with Birmingham and end in City. City (knowing this) put in a bid that they knew nobody would match and since that day its bought a smile to my face every time I think about how they got they're hands burnt on the deal. Clinton Morrison is a good 1st div striker NOT in the prem. Why do people always think the best players available are the ones that used to play for us? Praps you'd be interested in Sasa Circic too! I hear hes trying to get himself fit and he was a croud pleaser. smirk smirk!

Being out here in Spain, Heskey isn´t really top of the list of news items on Spanish TV, but I heard it from a Brummie Saturday, so maybe he has made a miraculous recovery.

I apologise for being blunt, but you have to understand, Clintons mum is a very dear friend of mine, and as helped me through a difficult time. I have in the past, always passed information along when I can, ie signing Hopkins, Smiths and Cockerells sacking, etc etc. I have also passed on information when Clinton has asked, or got him on the BBS in person. There has also been times when I have not passed on information, and kept it close to my chest. Clint himself has made his feelings towards the club clear, and as mentioned would love to come back, although he is more settled in Birmingham than he was. He has asked before to come back to Palace on loan, but Bruce needed him. I would ask people not to try and get me to reveal any information that is regarded as private, and told to me as a friend, because I will not do it. I will say however, that sometimes deals are going on, in private, and publicity of any sort, even on here could seriously •••• it up.
I would also like to point out, that Bruce would not hold Clint back for any selfish reasons. Any disagreement he has, was with the chairman, and he holds the club in high esteem. He did not really have any other alternative but to leave, and like LL coolsteve, I will not go onto details. One thing he did say though for a while when he went to Brum, was the team at Brum was not a patch on the one he had at Palace, and Dowie has shown him to be right. So perhaps its time to lay off the ugly git.
But back to this rumour, I will give out information, of there is any, when and if I can. So please, can you stop asking me.

I wonder whether we shouldn't now have a self-denying ordinance and just wait to see what happens. But I know it won't work like that!

But thanks, SIKO, for a masterly post.

...and Birmingham would let Clinton leave on loan because......
They have ambitions of being a top 6 side, hence the investment over the summer, look at the cover at centre forward at all the other clubs with that ambition, if B'ham release Morrison then they will be exposed.

...and Clinton would come to Palace because......
He wouldn't be the first choice front pairing, that would be AJ + any target man available. I think Morrison would rather sit on Birminghams bench than Palaces.
