Murray. Never the fastest but generally managed to get himself in the right place at the right time.

Andy Thorn.

By no means a naturally gifted player but was a joy to watch how he read the game. He was like an adult amongst innocent kids who used the dark arts to get his own way.

Dowie was interesting in that he looked like he'd been permanently brain damaged in a car accident (particularly if he was playing in the rain), but he knew how to lead the line and get important goals against top opposition despite not possessing top level talent himself

Some good selections so far on the thread!

Goes back a bit but my selection is John Humphrey ice cool right back. Calm under pressure and very good reader of the game with good positional sense.

Some names I'd throw into the mix

Danny Butterfield - physically not the greatest but always had that something about him. Going from right back to centre forward and getting the hat trick showed he has a bit about him as he was making the runs of a seasoned striker that night.

Wilf Zaha - decision making on the pitch is pretty top notch for someone still in the relatively early part of their career

Jose Fonte - Always looked so comfortable on the ball and read the game so well he rarely had to make last ditch recovery tackles.

Cabaye is probably the most intelligent player to have ever graced Selhurst (in a Palace shirt of course). To think we signed him for only 13M is incredible, considering how much other players who play in similar positions have cost clubs. Off the top of my head: Hourihane to Villa 10M, Hendrick to Burnley 10M, Ndong to Sunderland 18M, and Imbula to Stoke 24M.

I actually thought Gabbidon and Wilbraham had good footballing brains. Watson too, and Emerson Boyce, who is one of my favourite ex-players. Could play RB, CB and RWB (for Wigan), really rated him, gutted when Wigan poached him. I remember there being a (horrible) period when we became Wigan's feeder club, Boyce, Hall, Watson and Moses all went there for next to nothing, which made taking Jimmy Mac off them even sweeter.

Murray is the epitome of a thinking player for me.
Freedman and Lombardo also great examples. My early Palace days though bring Kellard and Woodruff to mind..also Birchenall always struck me as a thoughtful but swashbuckling forward.

Whilst we did get Cabaye for a relatively lowish fee at the time I'd say the transfers of Hendrick and Hourihane and more an indicator of how rapidly increasing the market is getting. N'Dong for 18M however is just pure scandalous.

Cabaye is miles ahead of any player we've had in a very long time in his overall understanding of the game. He should be captain.
