We went into last season with a net spend of 8.5m and then wonder why it was a struggle and the squad was imbalanced? That lead to paying inflated fees in the January to make the corrections needed.
Fair enough - it would also help if we were bringing through the odd academy player or finding one or two cheaper gems from the championship or abroad to supplement the squad. Tarkowski at Burnley or dare I say it Pascal Gross being prime examples

People moan how much I get paid in my job. Yet happy to go spend 100 a weekend to go and watch 11 blokes paid 100k+ PER WEEK to kick a ball around a field for 90 minutes.

Trouble with bringing through academy players is that EPPP has led to very few clubs at the top holding the majority of the good young players.

Take the 21 players who just won the U17 World Cup, Sancho who left the squad early returned to Borrusia Dortmund moved there from Man City. Of the remaining 20, FIVE were from Chelsea, 3 from Man City, 2 from Spurs and 10 clubs had 1 player including us in Nya Kirby. Of those who started games 4 were from Chelsea and the 3 from Man City, joined by 1 from Liverpool and 1 from Fulham.

Only Nya and Crellin from Fleetwood Town made it into the squad from a non Cat 1 Academy.

It is really tough for a club like Palace in the current system to develop players talented enough to throw into and to see make it in the PL.

I like him but the fee Leicester wanted in the summer and his age wouldn't really be worth it in my eyes.

With Benteke nearing his comeback I wonder if everyone believes we will still need a top forward with a 20M+ fee put down. I think we've just needed adequate backup to fill his boots for his injury and provide the competition to keep him on his toes that every players needs. I still think in Mitrovic there's a hungry young player with a real scope to improve and develop for a very reasonable fee. 40M may get us further than what we think. We need to add depth to the squad and have options off the bench who can change a game.

We need two strikers IMO. One as good as we can afford and the second as a decent back up.

Looks like Ronnow was not in Denmark squad tonight. If they get through against Ireland, he may need a move to a major league to get his place on the plane.

Options to change a game are great but if benteke gets injured again or is playing pants we need to have strikers to replace him


We need to sign 2 strikers and 1 that's proven at championship level to forward plan for next season if it happens

Very few players who fit that mould will also score goals in the PL. If you spend your money on someone like Gayle (15m?) you are sacrificing a lot of your budget and gambling on getting relegated. Get the championship striker as and when we need them, as you say Benteke will be off and we will have significant funds from his sale in order to pay for the new striker.

The problem with him is that he seems a tad injury prone....and I'm speaking as someone who thinks he's got great potential.

If he wasnt the most injury prone player on the planet Id take him in a heartbeat. Him and Wickham next season if the worst happens gets us promoted. When hes fit he is actually decent in the Prem but seems broken

Nice contradiction

Those two next season regardless of division would be lucky to get a dozen games between them!

We need Wickham if we go down. Then he can start repaying us.
