The Hull striker/winger. He is very highly rated at Hull and many Hull fans think he is too good for them. As I said he can play up front or on the wing, and is left footed. Also, he is tall and good in the air.

I have seen him play for Hull and he genuinely looks pretty accomplished. A player in the 'John Stead' Mould.

I think he is still quite young (23/24?) and that he is an ideal signing.

Any thoughts?

He's also a Northern Ireland international I believe.

A bit risky - but probably better than Wayne Andrews!

Depends how much Hull would ask - it would be quite a lot I reckon as they look good to go up again this year and Elliot is happy I think.

What?

Is he the guy thats the top scorer in the country or something?

I remember him being class when he was at Motherwell, dont think Hull would sell unless we tabled a large anount of money

he would be a good left sided midfielder / striker option playing 4 5 1 / 4 3 3.

I reckon 750k and Hull would bite our hands off.

Hull are a team on the up, I doubt they'd let their prized asset go easily. He does look very good from what I've seen (admittedly not much), must be right up there if you're looking for the best player in League 1 and 2. But the likelihood is that Hull will be in the Championship next season and then they'll need players of his quality more than anything.

He would be an excellent signing, though if Dowie's only getting in 3 players he probably wouldn't be in a priority position.

Striker and left winger. Kill two birds with one stone?

Would be great, but he'd cost a lot. The money could be better spent elsewhere at the moment.

would be very surprised if they let him go. as they could well be in the same division as us next year. class player but hull would want serious money

I can vouch for him. He is my top scorer in FIFA 2005 Career Mode with Hull City. He has a great knack of letting the ball run across him and drilling the ball home. You should see the replays. I think my addiction to this game is becoming a problem, I had better do some washing up before she wakes up....

Begs the question. why FIFA, and not PES?

Palace swoop for Stu


By Stuart McKinley
sportseditor@belfasttelegraph.co.uk

10 September 2005
STUART Elliott is in line for a lucrative move on the back of two impressive performances for Northern Ireland within the last week.

The Belfast Telegraph has learned that former Northern Ireland striker Iain Dowie is interested in taking the former Glentoran man to Crystal Palace after running his eye over him during Wednesday night's historic win over England.

The Hull City winger was watched by a representative of the Selhurst Park side when he scored a stunning free-kick to put Lawrie Sanchez's side ahead in the 2-0 win over Azerbaijan a week ago.

Dowie then took the opportunity to have a close-up look at the player when he was working for television at the England game, with Elliott being one of a number of players who stood out for Northern Ireland on the night.

Any move, however, will have to wait until the transfer window re-opens in January and Hull will demand a fee of at least 1million for the player.

Elliott, who joined Hull three years ago, hit 27 goals for the Tigers last season as they clinched promotion to the Championship.

He has had a relatively slow start to the domestic season this time around, but did score with a fantastic chip against Plymouth Argyle before he joined up with the Northern Ireland squad.

England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson pin-pointed Elliott as one of Northern Ireland's main threats in the build-up to Wednesday's game and he made life difficult for full-back Luke Young who was starting only his second international.

Elliott will get the chance to further impress Palace when Peter Taylor's Hull team travels to Selhurst Park for a Championship match this afternoon.

Superb player, just what we need. I imagine it would be hard to get him to join us though, as he is a bit of a religous fanatic and his religon only has churches in Hull and Scotland.

You never know though.

Would be a good signing. He is a left winger?

Didnt see much of him today but wasnt really looking out. Did he have a good game? 27 goals from midfield certainly isnt bad!

I hope Dowie doesn't buy him(or attempt to) based on one good performance against 11 clowns last Wednesday :o

No one threatened us on the wing todays so i guess he was a little bit tired after his exertions.

Did anyone notice the Hair Bear Bunch playing for Hull today!!! Brought back memories!!!

i would certainly welcome him. i fear that there will be a few clubs sniffing around though. fingers crossed, lets wait for jan

Yes i agree it will be up to Elliot to decide because im sure plenty of clubs will be in for him in the Jan transfer window. But i think we have the advantage with ID being an ex Northen Ireland international

H would be class for us. He is a goal scoring midfielder with a cracking left foot. He also takes great freekicks. Sign him up in Jan Dowie

Good point, I'd completely forgotten about his goals at Huddersfield. Along with Ian Bennett (that save from Booth in the last few minutes) and Brian Deane he has to be on the list of Palace legends who have never actually played for us!

11-09-2005, 06:59 PM
Stuart Elliott is definately a player I'd like to see at Palace. We need some width on the left and he could provide it well (along with a few valuable midfield goals). However I can't see Hull letting him go without a fight.
