Top 10 signings since 2010

This is based on a variety of things like performance, transfer fee, wages, consistency and influence so should be quite subjective. Some just pick themselves so 5 seems too few, although admittedly 10 is probably too many.

In order of importance :

1. Zaha
2. Bolasie
3. McArthur
4. Jedinak
5. Ward
6. Murray
7. Sakho (loan)
8. Puncheon
9. Cabaye
10. Dann

Important : this thread is supposed to be a bit of fun so if it doesn't interest you then please piss off.

wouldn't disagree with much of that. But I definitely would find a place for Delaney.

I think the signings at the end of August 2012 were the ones that got us on to the train we find ourselves on now:

Bolasie
Delaney
Moritz

Let’s just conveniently forget about Darcy Blake

Murray and Jedinak the year before were also fantastic buys.

I also add that Dann and Ledley were the signings that kept us up in that first Premier League season.

In terms of signings I would say Jedinak miles above everyone else. Resigning Zaha is second.

In my opinion our current success, while many, many people contributed (including non-playing staff and even fans), was built disproportionately on the assets of Jedinak bossing the midfield, and Wilf's ingenuity.

But since Wilf was not initially a 'signing' as such, there's a clear winner for me.

Agree with you on Wilf - he quite clearly was a proper signing but I almost want to conveniently forget that he played for those wankers.

But as for Jedinak above Murray... I dunno. Forget where Murray came from - he was a free transfer and he was probably responsible for the most fantastic season for a solo striker Ive seen at Palace - only equalled by AJ really.

We'd be a Championship team without Sakho, so it is hard to leave him out.

1. Murray - His goals got us to the play-offs
2. Kevin Phillips - Got us to the PL
3. Jedi was the leader of that team
4. Delaney a leader at the back
5. Bolasie helped to free up Zaha
6. Zaha when he returned gave us a threat in the PL
7. Cabaye has been instrumental in changing the way we play
8. Luka is the man now leading the side
9. Sakho was so important in keeping us up
10. Hodgson turned our season more than any other manager as he did it playing well

They for me would be the 10 but the order is changeable it is more chronological.

Yes Phillips scored some important goals in the run in, and obviously THAT penalty, but I still think 2nd is very, very generous.

Wouldn't disagree with OP list. Also what about top 10 worst signings?

Florian Marange
Jack Hunt
Jose Campana
Aruna Dindane
Gavin Mahon
Jimmy Kebe
Jonny Benteke
Jordon Mutch
Emmanuel Adebayor
Darcy Blake
Andy Dorman
Jon Obika
Alassane N'Diaye
Antonio Pedroza

Any of those could make the 10 easily

Surprised Bolasie isn't higher on people's lists. As you say his signing was instrumental in changing us from an average Championship team into a real contender. A lot of his performances that season were on a par and sometimes better than Zaha.

He started slowly in the PL but once he found his feet his was not only a key part of us surviving but was actually our best player for quite a while. How he left was a shame but we bought him for 300k and sold him for 25m.

I was tempted to put him top but Wilf has just been so good for the last 2 seasons it wasn't possible.

1. Jedinak - set the tone for the team for years to come
2. Murray - there's no prem party without his goals
3. Dann - essential for the defence that first season. Without him we don't stay up.
4. Delaney - hugely influential in getting us and keeping us up
5. Bolasie - such a huge bonus having two proper wingers
6. Zaha - nuff said, though think without the first 5 then its hugely unlikely we'd have ever been promoted / got to a position to sign him.
7. Puncheon - massive player for us when first promoted. Delivered when it mattered.
8. McArthur - been a huge player for us in the middle of the park and has continued to evolve with the upturn in quality.
9. Luka - his signing turned the season and kept us up under big sam
10. Philips - that bit of quality that tipped us over the edge. That penalty just squeezes him in.


Cabaye just misses out alongside Sakho and Chamakh (remember him playing a big role in our first prem season)

Wilf
Murray
Delaney
Luka
Bolasie
Jedinak
Sakho
Benteke
Puncheon
Ward

Not in order, I might edit later if I can be bothered.

Wilf top definitely, Murray second and then the rest. Special mentions for Delaney and Jedi huge in getting us up, Puncheon absolutely vital in our first couple of PL seasons and Luka for the last year and a half.
