Absolutely! I've only seen one other player in my lifetime at Palace that made me feel something was going to happen every time he got the ball.

As others have said his importance rather than the £££ is priceless. There was a time when many of us sat here and said why don't more locals come to Selhurst? He is the big coup, the star attraction and there will be many kids around Selhurst/Thornton Heath etc playing out Wilf every day in the playground.

There will be many children in Croydon who will get approached by Palace in the coming years, and having someone like Wilf in your ranks, and the success he has built can be pivotal in swaying kids footballing choices. He will become a role model to many of these kids, one which they will not only relate too but also aspire to become.

It's also a great advert for the academy who in turn can enhance their brand around his success. Wilf's rise to stardom is there for all to see and he epitomises everything good about the club.

Great ad for the academy without a doubt. But would Wilf of 8 years ago get a look in now? Would he be allowed to develop and that rawness improved whilst in the Prem?

No chance.

Was talking to my Watford mate before the game on Tuesday and said I hope he becomes our Le Tissier and stays with us the rest of his career.

Yeah agreed - since he has been on dis ting Palace will need to do their best to keep him. Hope they can but don't expect miracles - after all this is football and not the normal world that most people live in.

Rogers and Taylor were great players. Lombardo was classy for the time and place but when Wilf is on the ball it's like the entire ground inhales.

I couldn’t begrudge him moving to a big club. He’s just simply the best player we have ever had. Bidding starts at £100m

Which big club though? I cannot see him going to Manchester or Liverpool. I can only see him staying in London which means Chelsea, Spurs or Arsenal. Not sure he'd suit Chelsea, spurs are relative skin flints, so that only leaves Arsenal imho.

Joining a big club isn't always a great thing to do as Wilf knows only too well.
It can be a poisoned chalice and ruin your career. Even if you do well you'll only be one of a number of good players, never the legend that Wilf has made himself here.
You have to compete for your place in the side, you're constantly under threat from new star signings and the fans expect more and are more demanding.
The money can be better but he's on a good contract here and not many of the big sides could better it by that much.
People assume everyone wants to move to a big club at the first opportunity, i question why. At Palace Wilf has the license to thrill, he's adored and under no pressure, its a great challenge and thats why he signed the 5 year deal he's got.

Well within the top 15 players in the premier league at this point.

When you think about the fees those players would go for as well as his age, as long as we don't do something stupid like getting relegated it's no stretch to assume his market value probably is in the £60m to £80m region atm.

Hope we stay up and just have one summer where we're not a complete shambles so we can give him a decent team to play with next year.
