spoke to someone very close to Clinton last night and he told me he wants to come back regardless of division and finish carrer with us. contract up with cov at end of season . found it really encouraging that despite us being in a very unstable situation Morrison seems really passionate about the club .

Not sure about that. As a goalscorer, he's a class above any striker we have at the moment. He'd do a good job in the CCC, and an excellent one in League 1. Indeed, if we ended up in the third tier, he would imho be a far better bet than anyone else we have a realistic chance of attracting.

Doesn't matter though, as I can't see it anyway

Watched him closely at selhurst recently and his game would have certainly added something to ours. He is a good finisher and might even be maturing as a person, the reason Warnock found him difficult to handle. He had a very positive influence on many of our younger players ans would probably do very well in a third term.

sorry i forgot you are the font of all knowledge on cpfc ! search the history of nugent and peter taylor and you get direct quotes from the latter . so was it b#llshit or was mr taylor in on it with me ? and three people of whome i know have good connections with cpfc intamated freely that there was dialogue between noades and jordan possibly not directly . the day i was banned the fateful day of admin , if you ask many members of staff at the club there was a very strong rumour / speculation that jordan had sourced outside investment . which i still believe was true and is why jordan felt extra shafted i was banned for relaying this .

I'd have said similar a couple of months ago, and possibly in the same tone I have taken your post in.

But having read the real reason that he went, I would imagine that is exactly why he would want to come back now.

Good on him. I hope he does come back.

Indeed. He even turned up to watch all the youth games and moaned there.

I like a player that gives a shit. He encouraged as much as he complained, and he loved the club.

Not sure it would be in anyone's best interests for him to come back, but I do get tired with the number of digs Clinton gets on these boards. Not from you, in general I mean. He was, if nothing else, a great servant to this club

Warnock much prefers the workman like Northern striker, as opposed to the cheeky wit and goal poaching ability of Clint, no wonder he didn't understand him.

I've heard numerous reports that Scannel, Moses, Clyne etc. were upset to lose Clinton, who had been a top role model for them.

Me too. It's just right.
Why people don't want back a striker that clearly has an affiliation with the club & is gunning for all time top scorer I have no idea. If he's in a position to be gunning for scoring records he can hardly have been bad for the club. When I read some of the comments from 'fans' of the club about Clinton I often wonder exactly whose shoulder it is that this supposed chip is actually on ?

Not only that, but it was clearly bollocks, in so far as playing the game at least. What was most impressive about Clinton in that last season was the way he was with the youngsters on the pitch. he was the player who was fist over to them if they made a mistake, or something didn't quite work, with an arm around the shoulder. Maybe Clinton was a bit wild off the pitch in his private life, although I don't recall hearing too many stories about that over the length of his carreer from any of his managers.

^ This

And for the record, in any situation like this, regardless of the player it is wholy understable for the manager to want to assert his authority over the squad even if it means losing a star player. Look at Fergie and Beckham at Man U. Beckham had become much bigger than the club and manager and had to go to save the team from breaking apart. I'm not saying Clinton was a disruptive influence but the younger players should listen more to what someone of Neil's experience has to say than someone like Clinton, who whilst experienced at championship level, hasn't got the wider ranging experience that Warnock had.

Excellent post, the man will be a liabilty, a luxury, and a distraction and only wants to come back for purely selfish reasons, unable to command deity status at Coventry, knowing he aint gonna get a deal from Coventry, due to his mediocre performances.

All he wants is a comfortable end to his career, and take in the adulation of those who, like him, live in the past.

While I think that it's an unlikely scenario at present, I know I'd love to see him back. I have no doubt that it would be better both for the club and the young players' development if Clint was here. And I don't agree that a manager needs to come before the players. The club needs to come before all else and Clint would have been more use to us this last season than Warnock ultimately proved to be.

Warnock is a big mouthed self interested tosser. Fair enough, but don't talk about higher principles & moral fibre then. Clinton on the other hand was a hero the first time we were in administration & one of the top scorers in our history. I know which one I wish was around now.

bigend1
23-03-2010, 09:01 AM
Clinton would be great, its simple. Right now he is better than any of the options we have. If we are to have a fiddle with league one even more so, he would be a top top player in that league. Plus he does love the club, not the basis for signing players otherwise i would dust off my boots, but it is a nice bonus.

As for neil and Clinton, who knows. I heard Clinton was good with the kids, putting in a lot of time with them and keeping their feet on the ground but that was probably on the bbs so meh... neil may have got rid of him for power. Perhaps they were both alpha males for the young ones as it were. Both strong personalities trying to do their thing. Even if they were both good, having two leaders doesnít work and it could have been in palaces interestís that one of them left, so the club was going in a clear direction. If this was the case Warnock was always gonna win, he was the manager after all. Doesnít mean either of them were wrong, just both of them didnít work, it happens.

Cant see his return as being anything but good for palace, come home Clinton (for free if you like!)

He left because Coventry offered him more money than we did

Amazing that after all this time the arguement is still raging! :D

The arguement was put to bed by Zonin2000's post on here a while back. He confirmed that Warnock wanted rid of Clinton because he deemed him too big an influence on the players. It's 100% not about Clinton jumping ship for a 'better offer,' he was forced out.

Around the same time, Warnock also issued a statement to the press saying that Clinton (despite being top goal scorer by a long way and no-one else lined up!) would not be gauranteed a place, and indeed would be third choice.

That's all the evidence you need to show that Warnock wanted him out and made it uncomfortable for him at Palace.

Hopefully this arguement is put to rest now as all the evidence totally stacks up to show that Warnock wanted Clint out, and Clinton couldn't therefore work with Warnock.

Warnock you're a grubby old Northern tosser.

Come home Clint.

Neil the Eagle
23-03-2010, 10:25 AM
Yes, Warnock might have preferred him to move on, he admitted he found him hard work in training, but it certainty wasn't black and white as some people would like to make it out to be.

After all, Warnock sanctioned offering him a new contract, which Clinton himself described as a good offer at the time.

The contract had to be accepted by 1st July, the expiration of his old contract, when it wasn't, Warnock decided to turn his attentions elsewhere and had lined up Chris Iwelumo.

Neil, NW offered him a new contract while sayimng he would be a choice behind Scowcroft. I can't think of much more of an insult for a striker TBH. He is a clever man, Mr warnock, and knew that Clint had a lot of support from the fans (plus was ourr top scorer by a mile), so he could not just get rid, but he could make it impossible for him to stay. Which is just what he did.

Spot on. Couple that Warnock statement with what we now know about the 'behind the scenes' relationship and it's clear Clint wasn't going to last long, or in his plans.


He is a clever man, Mr warnock, and knew that Clint had a lot of support from the fans (plus was ourr top scorer by a mile), so he could not just get rid, but he could make it impossible for him to stay. Which is just what he did.

Very, very astute man; still manages to pull the wool over supporters' eyes - even today!

Think also about him 'lining up' that loan player when he 100% knew his heart was set on moving to QPR; he also 100% knew the loan would be rejected, but he did it to further drum home the image of 'his hands being tied' - an image he projected from the start, even when he was allowed to splash out on McCarthy and Carle.

So very glad to see the back of him; grubby Northern toad.

Why are you so anti any positive press/comments for Clinton?

Is it a crime to speak affectionately about one of our all time top scorers?

For what it's worth; he looks lively, involved and passionate throughout these brief highlights: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/eng_div_1/8571179.stm

Neil, NW offered him a new contract while sayimng he would be a choice behind Scowcroft. I can't think of much more of an insult for a striker TBH. He is a clever man, Mr warnock, and knew that Clint had a lot of support from the fans (plus was ourr top scorer by a mile), so he could not just get rid, but he could make it impossible for him to stay. Which is just what he did.

Exactly right:veryangry
We are crap when it comes to keeping players (won't mention Bostock, but who knows what he really felt about being played by NW - Scannell has certainly not gone forwards under Warnock), just look at Hudson, Watson and Clinton. There has to be something about Warnock that puts people off (with clinton he was just made to feel unwanted - please no more s**t about more money. This was the case with Hudson but we lost out on a 7 figure transfer fee, spent £600,000 on a crock and have had nothing but trouble in his position ever since. In hindsight we should have given him enough to keep him?

Amazing that after all this time the arguement is still raging! :D

The arguement was put to bed by Zonin2000's post on here a while back. He confirmed that Warnock wanted rid of Clinton because he deemed him too big an influence on the players. It's 100% not about Clinton jumping ship for a 'better offer,' he was forced out. .

It was put to bed whe E Girl posted the exact opposite to Zonin, and AFAIK she is way better connected and therefore in aposition to know the facts.

We offered a contract, Coventry offered a better one

He chose Coventy

It's far from being that simple. You've completely ignored all the other evidence kicking around, about his relationship with Warnock, what Warnock thought of him, and Warnock's statement about being third choice and behind Scowcroft.

Everyone can see it except for you!

Oh well, getting off topic now...come back Clint, the Northern toad has gone now.

I would love, love Clinton back.

By the same token, I don't think he or NW is blameless in his departure.

Clinton could have signed a "very good" contract on offer.

NW could have been more encouraging for him to do so.

Could have, and could have.

Did not, and did not.

One left, the other now gone too. So the door is open for Clinton to come home.

Odds on Clinton lifting the League 1 title next May?

Clinton would do nothing except completely improve our frontline... not only is a able to finish the six yard chance he is also very good at playing with his back to goal, receiving the ball to feet, holding it up and spreading it wide... or just turning and tw@tting it... never understood the criticism of him... he's mouthy but he's always been mouthy for us... and he wants to play for us... something so many on here say is missing in a modern footballer... and another thing, we do not score goals so anyone who can come in and possibly improve that fact is more than welcome... come back Clint...

Well, frankly the whole focus of football fans on the ever so ******* tiresome Premiership is tedious in the extreme. If we are to go down, & I still don't think we will, the idea of challenging for promotion with a mostly young & homegrown side, led by Clinton, one of our own, is a really quite exciting prospect. We might actually put together long winning runs & create a fortress at Selhurst. All of which appeals to me. I think it's a given that all Palace fans would rather stay up, but League 1 is a decent league with some big teams in it.

Certain people like certain players and despise others. Clinton and Hudson were forced out by not being valued by Warnock (and certain fans). Warnock made it pretty public about his preference for SLOWCROFT. As we speak Hudson is out with his ex team mates and their wives along with watson - however he will never be forgiven by one or two for going to the clowns. As a player it must have been difficult to see Kuqi getting paid better than you. How many would take substantially less to stay where they were not appreciated.

However, its not worth wasting breath arguing with some as they are always right and the rest of us are wrong:p

Mark Hudson was offered a 50% pay increase and a signing on fee to stay at Palace and it is not true to say that Warnock didn't want him to stay that is not the case.

Aaroncpfc
28-03-2010, 02:36 AM
Agreed. There's so many former Palace forwards that could have been so useful for us. Even though Freddie Sears never technically hit the back of the net for us I still fell like that today was the type of game where we could have really needed a forward who plays in the style that he does.

Hudson went for better football. that was what he said. He went down with Charlton so he got what he deserved. I always thought he was grossly overrated and that includes his own estimation of himself. Fonte was a bigger loss and left at a time when we were doing fine. At the same point McCarthy was crocked. Why people keep dredging Hudson up is completely beyond me. It has nothing to with where we find ourselves.

If we go down then next season will be one about building with youngsters a few older players and maybe a free transfer or two.....one of the qualities of the latter two is to work with youngsters not just on the pitch but off the pitch toocertainly what I recall Clinton is more than capable to full fill that role....

There are one or two issues who will be the management team next year will Clinton fit in with them......Hart Dougie and Pembo are here till season end what happens then will depennd on who buys us... I am not sure Clinton is every managers cup of tea....I might be wrong but did Dougie always get on well with Clinton I think they certainly had musical clashes.....

Certainly would add far more than Stern John.....his return currently 1 in 36 and that was for Ipswich

To add more than Stern John is not saying much really.

If we go down I can't see Clinton wanting to come back on 2-3k a week however much he loves the club. He will still command decent wages of 5-6k from someone in the Championship.

Yep, we had a crap defence with hudson in it didn't we. Missed one match (dropped by warnock for not signing - Warnock playing him every match showed what he thought of him didn't it?). I seem to remember several fantastic challenges every match, good positioning at free kicks, and some really moaney 'fans' who didn't like him. It repeats itself today with some and their opinion of Clyne. however these same fans think Derry and lawrence play well every match.
