God, No.

Paddy and Lawrence are both under contract for next year.

Hill is gone.

Claude might re-sign with us.

Then pick up someone cheap and cheerful depending on what league we're in.

And then sign Messi and Torres and we're sorted.

Ooh. Good question :)

Guess it'd depend who's playing at centre half which in itself determines how often the ball will go sailing into orbit towards the vicinity of Alan Lee.

OK, if we signed Xavi, I'd like a ball playing centre half as well. Is Lucio available?

Is this numbnuts thread of the year so far?

Fighting for our Championship survival. Fighting for our very survival. No clear progress made on new owners or an admin exit strategy.

And there is a thread about possible transfer targets.

Here's a pointer - Speroni, Danns and Ambrose out - youth team in.

Especially if we lose the next two games to set up that perfect final Sunday.

I'd prefer the lad Leicester have off Sunderland at the moment. Doubt we could afford him but a loan is not out of the question. Scored a cracking goal last week and looks very comfortable carrying the ball forward and running at defences. Could easily spearhead a promotion push for any championship team.

He's past it. Rather have that scouse fellow from United. Wayne something. Although, failing that we obviously have Nugent to come in and lead the line. Deco in behind him as was mentioned earlier and Xavi supporting. Lawrence we really must retain, but if he has to go, I'd probably be looking at someone like Vidic in all honesty. In fact, I'll be disappointed if we don't win the Premier league next season.

Charlie Austin at Swindon has had a fantastic season. If they don't go up I'd like to see us looking at players like him, aswell as some young/reserve Premiership players.

All this is pointless at the moment though. We don't even know who will be running the club and who our manager will be!

Beanie
13-04-2010, 10:18 AM
Option 1 - the take over is completed as a result we have no need to off load - transfer targets should then be at the front as we've lacked a real goalscorer for a while now. "Realistic" is determined by the amount of money the consortium can put in and the division we are in, so speculation is pointless.

Option 2 - the takeover is delayed but the consortium pay for the close season, pretty much as above bit it will be later in summer so more panicky

Option 3 - the takeover falls through - BG has to have a firesale to finance the summer and next seasons team is made up of those he doesn't sell and kids we have already. The only "target" is staying alive.

Option 4 - is no club so no point!

Is there a list of out of contract players (all clubs, not just Palace) anywhere?

IF a purchase of the club is successful, and if we did have money to spend, we should learn from our mistakes and be particularly frugal.

Build a side around the academy - mix in a couple of loans and free transfers. Only spend transfer fees on young players with resale value. Only offer 1 or 2 year deals (max) to those 30+. Have a strict wage budget and stick to it. A self-imposed cap on squad size would also be beneficial.

There'll be one here soon -

14-04-2010, 07:37 PM
Wages will be the thing that kills us next season. If we stay up the crowd numbers make the possibility of even getting Clint (who I guess would be amenable to a return) unrealistic.

The 5 out of contract players are some of our higher earners (I'm speculating) and if we were to lose Ambrose Speroni and Danns we would also cut the wage bill substantially.

You would expect Calvin and Sean to still be here next season, but the doomsday scenario is that we don't stay up and then have to start again next season, near enough from scratch, which would make a return to the Championship nigh on impossible.

This is the reason that I don't understand the consortium's lack of action from a footballing perspective. Obviously from a business point of view it makes sense as they get the Club cheaper but with a squad in ruins (as I'm guessing the bulk of the squad have release clauses in their contracts).

Adjusting our sights accordingly, I reckon we should splash out on Neil Ruddock, as he must be 21-22 stone now. Park the lairy greedy fecker on our goal line, and have 10 under-10 academy kids outfield. Worst case scenario - 46 0-0 draws; couple of own goals by opposition defenders - 50 points and safety.

webgard

It's bad, but actually it doesn't hurt to just sometimes forget about the reality and be a little bit optimistic and hopeful.

There are two possible future for us: either it's a meltdown of liquidation. So next season we're following CP AFC or whatever it will be called from the lowest tiers of the football pyramid; in which case the whole Transfer Hotline forum (and not just this thread) would be irrelevant and we probably have to change the name of the forum to open trials and wear our boots and take a place in the new team!

Or, somebody would step in to take the rein at Palace and after departure of our high earners and sell of our few salable assets, we actually would be in a more stable financial position than most of the teams in our size and level; in this case depending on which division we end up, there are a number of decent out of contract players we can look in to (the number of them is increasing because of financial problems for all football clubs in the country).

Therefore I'm more concerned about the coaching staff we would have as they will have a pivotal role in establishing the team spirit and get the best out of the players available to us.

We may aswell be optimistic and maybe a tad stupid becos we love this club, and really if we're not bought soon we won't be a club for the new season so... What i'm trying to say is, all we can do is be optimistic cos its either we hav spending power, or not a club.

Tbh gooders i do think the consortium will invest in the squad but it'll hopefully be freebies or lower league players,while club gets back on a sound footing. Hopefully future transfer policy will be ownly investing in players that have a future transfer value. Only good thing bout current state of the game is the amount of decent free transfers about.

Being ginger and missing a playoff penalty isn't necessarily the sign of a bad player, as we know ourselves. If we lose Neil Danns, I would like to see us do another Humphrey and Ambrose, and demonstrate to Charlton once more how to utilise a decent player effectively in Nicky Bailey.

Of course, if we could send another pile of donkey shit their way to further hamper their prospects next season, all the better.

Hopefully we won't.. but if we were forced into selling Julian Speroni, I would quite like to see if we could save the career of Iain Turner. He has seemingly done nothing but spend time out on loan, and he was exceptional for us in the 4/5 games he played.

Turner would be a good replacement if we were to lose Speroni.

I'd also like to see us invest in young players from League's One and Two and the non-league. Brett Pitman of Bournemouth has had an excellent year this season. Scored 28 goals this season and is still only 22. Would probably command a transfer fee in the region of a £750k to £1 million, though.

Well despite representing a value in terms of future transfer if he did well with us , imo that 750-1m should be value if he was 1 very successfull with us and in turn making us successfull and 2 total fee after moving on from us , so maybe looking at 250-300k to start with as don't forget he did business in basement division.

Since we have to cut the £10.6m wage bill by £3m to break even I would say that any replacment players would be on between £2k and £5k a week. Unlikely that we will get any top quality Championship players. We need to look at up and coming lower league players.

What sort of Value is Scott Sinclair ?

I think he should become our number one target this summer )whether it be on loan or permenant), regarding we keep the majority of our squad.

Im obviously being realistic here and i assume he doesnt want to leave Chelsea for a Championship side and i assume we wont be able to spend £4,000,000-5,000,000 on a handfull of players let alone 1 player but i think we should offer a loan deal with an option to be signed permenantly if we go up.

He's already been in a play-off achieving side with us so i think he'll be able to do it again with a team just as good. (Minus Fonte, Moses and Ben)

If not, out of the free agents: Gary Teale, Tommy Spurr, Morrison and Bogdanovic.

I'd rather us only go for free agents and loanees until we being to make a profit. As much as I like some of the suggestions in this thread, it's signing players like Leon Cort who put us in debt in the first place.

We would have to be very careful who we consider as a free agent mind you, some players mentioned already are good but are far too injury prone. I'd like to see us give opportunities to a couple of players that Wolves and Southampton have released. They're at a good age for development and have only been released due to the clubs ambition.

I don't think you could buy team spirit like we have at present, so personally would like to keep the squad together as much as possible, but also try and keep within the 7.6 million annual wage budget. If that only leaves enough to get two extra players I would like us to look at one of Charlie Austin or Billy Painter from Swindon if they don't go up. If Clint Hill leaves, possibly Tommy Spurr on a free from Wednesday.

It all hinges on who else leaves of course, but just seeing a half decent team out there in August under new careful ownership will do me after the turmoil of last season. As long as we don't start paying players too much again, that way lies problems.

20-05-2010, 07:59 PM
realistic targets i would hope might be Sean Derry, hear he is a free agent & played a key role for someone last season, although wages may be a stumbling block. Sinclair, Koren ? Get with the programme, we might be saved but we won't be rich. I hope we can hang onto enough me what we've got to stay up next season. More concerned we find a canny manager to be honest, reckon we'll need one.

Out of that list I think we should definitely consider Clinton Morrison and Nile Ranger. I'm not to keen on Simeon Jackson because I can imagine another Izale McLeod situation developing with him. Hinds could be Sears mark II so based on previous experiences i'd let another club gamble on him.

I haven't really seen enough of Kyle Bartley and Ryan Shotton to pass judgement on them, Ryan Betrand is definitely worth a try in my opinion from what he achieved at Reading last season if we fail to get Callum Davidson. I don't really rate Chris Riggot and I can see him in the long term falling in to the category of free agents like Mark Kennedy.

Although Jonathan Franks was once hyped up as the next David Beckham, if Middlesbrough don't want him why on earth would we want him?

I think Nathan Delfonso, Scott Sinclair, Jack Cork, James Harper, Robert Korn would be expecting to a join a team that finished slightly higher up the league and I can't imagine Scunthorpe letting another player go considering they've lost two important players and are likely to lose there top scorer. Based on previous experience I think if we were to lose our Jules in goal we should definitely go for Iain Turner because of how well we know he can play for our club.

So in short term, I believe our realistic targets at the moment should be Clinton Morrison (Free), Nile Ranger (Loan) and Callum Davidson (Free). That's assuming we lose nobody in the transfer window other than Clint Hill mind you, which given our luck over previous seasons is unlikely.

A lot of the above are out of contract, therefore they may elect to stay even if they get a reduced offer for the coming season.

Football is having to come to terms with the reality of the current financial climate and they may struggle to find a club that would match the salary they have been used to. All things considered staying put on a lower salary may be a better option and avoid the upheavel of moving home and family.

I doubt that John would be on a wish list to keep anyway.

Much depends on who the new manager will be, however I doubt very much if we will be buying players and wages we offer may well limit further the choice. I am sure we will see a return to the Coppell days of lower division and none league bargins.

For a clue as to who may be joining us next season I think we will need to be looking at names in divisions 3 & 4 (old money) and the Conference.

We need to get an experienced manager on a short term basis who we can trust to keep us up (NOT HART!). Then appoint Dougie as his assistant. If we can get through this season and stay in the Championship, then we can start building our team with Dougie as manager and aim for good football as well as results.

We can sign Hines on a free and Spence on loan from West Ham, and try to get James Harper and a left back as well. Morrison might be brought back if he can accept lower wages. We should also keep Danns, Speroni and Ambrose. I think Lee, Hill and Derry are expendable.

This would be perfect; but I don't think Lee is expendable.

He really was absolute quality last season, he tries so hard, and wins everything in the air. He really became a favourite, and even though he doesn't score as much, adds so much to the team (completely made all 3 of DB's goals against wolves).

Lee, Harper, Morrison would be a brilliant front three next season. If we keep Danns, Ambrose and Speroni; we won't be looking at a mid-table finish season, we'll be looking at promotion.

Sadly, I don't think we have the option of getting those players in, and keeping the ones we have. At the moment, it looks like Speroni and Danns are staying, but we'll lose Ambrose at some point. I wish we could hold on, and bolster the squad we have, but I don't know whether the finances are there to be able to do such a thing.

Please, CPFC2010, don't rip apart the squad now. If we need to let people go, make sure that it is at a very good price. God knows, maybe the money could be put back into the squad!

For me, the number one priority is to keep the squad we have, with a few free's/loans thrown in. If we can do this, we'll stay up next season without a doubt. :hi:

No to journeyman/players happy to do enough to stay at CCC level and drift ie Fletcher/Oster.

Yes to young energetic potentials. Not a whole squad of them, we need experience as much as anyone with all the young boys already in the squad. But I'd rather a few gambles ie Simon Thomas go wrong, if we end up pulling a Michael Kightley out the bag.

think that was one of a number of reasons. another big factor being barry frys interference and the fact that the chairman represented something of a younger more brash Simon Jordan. He was from london originally maybe that would help sway him.

It's an easy trap to fall into, but we fans can't expect too much expenditure - this season or any other. Chasing the dream is what got us into so much trouble (twice).

Such is football these days, every season there are hosts of decent players available on frees and loans - we should only spend on players if we recoup significant sums on player sales.

Indications are Ambrose and Jules want to stay.

Don't know what wage budget the new guys are looking at, so can't speculate what we may have to lose, but in:

Clinton (free)
Fontaine (free)
PL winger (loan)
Good post
I would be very surprised, and rather worried if there is a big transfer budget next season. Donít forget there will be no season ticket income for CPFC (2010) in 2010/11. We need to be realistic and expect only frees from the Championship & below, along with home grown talent from the Academy Ė forget ex Premiership players because their wage demands will be too high. The club has to be run on a sound financial basis. Blackpool has shown it is possible to be financially sensible and go up.
The only exception will of course, be the signing of Da Nuge:)

Donít forget there will be no season ticket income for CPFC (2010) in 2010/11.

Why not fella? I thought I heard that 4000 season tickets had been sold prior to Administration? If that's true then there may be at least another 4000 to yet be sold which equates to roughly £1.5 million.

We may also manage to increase the number what with the feel good factor of having been saved and so on. Certainly I will be buying 2 and it's 5 or 6 years since I had a season ticket.

Nevertheless, I agree with your main message - no silly transfer fees please Palace. If we can keep the majority of the squad we have now I'll be more than happy.

No matter who comes and goes, we will need a centre forward capable of scoring 15-20 goals, or at least with the potential to do so. As much as I like Lee and Andrew, they will not do this. Nor do I think Clinton can, although I would have him back. Players such as Charlie Austin should be looked at.

When i spoke to Clint at the west brom game, he seemed like he really wanted to come back if we were playing in the CCC.

After more careful thought and the obvious realisation Sinclair, Koren, Harper, DeMerrit etc. will not touch us with a barge poll. The best suggestions in this thread so far (in my opinion) have been:

Tamika Mkandawire - Free
John Harley or Callum Davidson - Free
Hamuer Bouazza - Loan*
Simeon Jackson - ???
Clinton Morrison - Free

*My latest suggestion. Pushing it I know, but he joined Blackpool last season who weren't predicted as promotion pushers.

If we lose Sean Derry it looks like we haven't got a clue who could replace him yet.

Does anybody know any players in SPL that are being released? Over the years players at sides like Celtic, Rangers, Hibs, Hearts and Aberdeen have shown there worth in this division.

Clyne--McCarthy--Mkandawire---?---
Sinclair----Danns----Ertl--------Boyd
----------Scannell---Morrison--------

If we can get an experienced Left-back on a free, someone better than Jon Harley hopefully i think that is a very strong 1st 11. Alan Lee as another option up front, or moved on if possible to save the wages. Ambrose sacrificed to fund other moves, if we could get Boyd. His wages may fund 2 of the signings and we would have much better balance. If we can avoid too many injuries suspensions then that side could get us right up into the promotion/play-off picture.

Other players, including the likes of Derry, Hill, Butterfield should be signed only on the right sort of wages to account for how often they are likely to play.

They've got some half decent portuguese central defender at Southampton - Fonti or something like that - who I reckon would make a good centre back alongside Paddy. He might be keen to come too......

Wash your mouth out with soap & water! :D

He scored a goal every 4.5 games at Coventry that would make him our most prolific striker currently.

2008–2010 Coventry City 91 apps (21) goals

Depends how you use him and also his motivation would be so different if he came back.

If you had teh lieks of Boyd, Sinclair and Scannell running off him then i think he would be great as well as popping up to score a few poachers goals himself.

CaptainCharisma
02-06-2010, 02:48 PM
Well i would liek to see Morrison come back to finish his career, his goal poaching could be just what we need. I would also like to see Alan Sheehan the left back of Leeds, spent last season on loan at Swindon so could be available at a good price. Would love Fonte to come back, and would also like to see Swindon striker Charlie Austin, he is young, pacey and can score goals.

I think it's a classic case of remember Clint in his pomp rather than witness a player who is not what he once was. It saddens me when ex-players come back, in whatever form, player or manager and ultimately disappoint. The only ex-players I would want to see back now are Watson and Fonte. Both are unlikely.

I'd take Boyce back if we're playing that game.

Personally, I think we need a left back, a centre back, a winger, a centre-mid, and two strikers.

As well as that, we could do with a GOOD back-up goalie.

BulletEagle
02-06-2010, 03:47 PM
Can I just say - we should give up with Fonte. He isn't coming back. Would cost too much, he only just left us, and So'ton want a promotion push. If they are selling all their players I would rather Rickie Lambert join us.

GreatGonzo
02-06-2010, 03:52 PM
Unlikely we will have much of a budget. Boyd would be amazing if we could get him but how much would he realistically cost? The fact Forest did not always play him and have not gone in is interesting but certainly would be inclined to offer £1m and see where it gets us.

Would be esential for me to see our signings create much more balance in teh squad though, including age.

AJ
02-06-2010, 03:55 PM
What I don't want to see is anymore players arriving at the club on large salaries. I hope the new owners set a strict wage structure in place and keep to it. I think that is one of the issues with free transfers. They come in with the notion that the club has saved x amount of money on a transfer fee, therefore, the player wants higher wages.

Another player we should be looking at (if Bolton are prepared to loan him out next season) is Danny Ward, a young left winger/striker who was on loan at Swindon last year. I saw him in both play off semi's vs the Clowns, got 2 goals and looked a real handful.

A decent back-up goalkeeper is essential, as well as a central striker (CF) who can actually get on the end of flicks & passes and score goals. I also think we need some cover at L & R Back.

Who these players should be, will depend on what funds, If any, are available, who's available for free and the quality/ability of the new manager (whoever he is) to bring in loan players. :p

I can't help thinking the club will be run lean and mean though, for the foreseeable future.

Given the need for solidarity and the team spirit last season will have engendered, I'd be quite happy with the current squad assuming we can cling onto Speroni, Danns and Ambrose. Perhaps with a couple of loanee forwards, and Zaha getting more of a look.

02-06-2010, 04:29 PM

And id love Quedrue but hes certainly off the price range and wage budget surely. (Not knowing how much 2010 will give the manager to spend)

02-06-2010, 04:33 PM
Probably me being mental, but I think we only really need a decent striker to play off of Lee / Andrew and we could be in for a good season?

Would the boy Austin from Swindon tick that box?

What do you mean 'our price range?' We have no idea how much the consortium are willing to invest in players, if any.
Other than that he's a Palace fan, so you'd think he'd be interested in playing for us. Forest loaned him for a £400K fee apparently :eek: (http://www.thisisnottinghamforest.co.uk/news/Forest-immediate-plans-sign-Boyd/article-2174049-detail/article.html)
Article also says he was valued at £2m.
Needless to say I doubt we'll sign him.

Indeed.

Would much rather take a chance on the likes of Le Fondre or Taylor at Rotherham, both of whom have done pretty well this season.

We have to look to lower leagues for success - we've relied on expensive, disappointing signings too often in the last ten years. And when we did sign players on the cheap, we didn't give them the opportunity they deserved (Dave Martin for example.)
