Second Wright Set for Palace
Mon 28th Jun 2010 12:27

TWTD understands that released keeper Richard Wright will opt to join fellow former Blue David Wright at Crystal Palace next season. Defender Wright is set to be unveiled as George Burley’s first Eagles signing today.

Town let both Wrights leave at the end of last season with the former England keeper subsequently holding talks with West Ham and also reportedly interesting Charlton.

The 30-year-old ex-Arsenal and Everton keeper probably favours a move to Selhurst Park ahead of a return to the Hammers because he is more likely to play regular first team football for the Championship side.

Former Town keeper-coach Malcolm Webster joining George Burley’s staff may also have a bearing on Wright's decision.

If he is a replacement, lets hope it is because Jules is off to the Prem, and not because Burley doesnt fancy Jules as number 1.

He would have to be a moron not to want Jules as number 1!

If Wright signs I would assume Jules is off :( Not a bad replacement though.

For what it's worth I just heard the Richard Wright rumour from an Ipswich fan aswell.

When I read the article first thought that popped in my head is that Jules is off to the Prem.

With all the Scwartzer stories it would be interesting to see if Fulham are interested in Jules.

I don't think it's any coincidence that we're signing a right-back and a keeper, when Clyne and Speroni are our most sellable assets.

It makes financial sense to get a few million for the pair, and bring in 2 good quality replacements for nothing.

George Burley has been told he can use any money generated from player sales, and 3-4m could be very useful to bolster the squad in other areas.

Are we still allowed to give him stick for shouting at that ball boy?

This makes sense to me. Isn't this Julian's last year of his contract? As much as he obviously has an affinity for the club, I'd expect him to move on at the end of next season if we're not pulling up any trees (which is unlikely). If we did lose him, RW would be a decent replacement who'd have got used to the team/set-up by then.

He didnt join the Hammers because he didnt want to sit on the bench. The only reason he would join us is if he's playing every day. If he joins, odds are Jules is getting sold.

I think it's just a case of a reporter putting two and two together. Burley used to work with Wright so therefore he must want to sign him. I seem to remember that we were "about to sign" Chris Morgan and Rob Kozluk when Colin took over too.

Excowboy
28-06-2010, 11:58 AM
If he does come, hopefully it will be to find a new bench to sit on. Losing Speroni would be a disaster, and we do need a decend back-up for a couple of years until Mann has matured.

If we can get both Wright's for free and then sell Clyne and Speroni for lets say a combined 4m then I think thats business we, as a newly financially astute club, have to do.

He could simply feel that he'd have a better chance of playing ahead of Speroni than ahead of Green. It would make a change to have two keepers where one isn't SO much better than the other that there is no effective competition and we actually don't have to panic is one get's sent off or injured.

Yep, they will have effectively paid for the ground. Whilst you always want to improve your squad, those two are probably pretty good replacements. If we can get a few more freebies with a potential sell on value as well, we'll do ok next year hopefully, and make 4-5 million into the bargain.

Just as financially astute to bring in two decent (if aging) players as cover for free. Selling Clyne, and especially Speroni who has said he has no wish to go anywhere, won't be so astute if our paper thin squad isn't up to the season and we go down. Two seasons in league 1 and that 4m is lost in TV money and gates. Lets get the cover in before we start selling people off.

Richard Wright is only 32, still quite young for a keeper. Ipswich fans seem quite gutted about losing both of them. Its not certain that Clyne or Speroni will be off anyway, but if they want to go, we will need some half decent replacements/cover.

Got to agree with you there.

Signing two players on frees to cover 2 players leaving for millions is good business, and far from a footballing disaster. Is Richard Wright good enough to get into a play-off chasing side? Definitely.

3-4m will go a long way this summer.

Wright surely wouldn't join Palace to be back-up to Speroni?

However i really don't rate him as a keep at all, so i hope this story is just rumours or alternatively that Speroni stays and never ever gets injured.

I've seen Wright play quite a lot and i think he is one of the worst keepers in the league.

It's surely no coincidence that Richard Wright, between 1994 and 2001,
while playing for George Burley at Ipswich enjoyed the most successful
period in his entire playing career playing 240 games in just 7 seasons,
before signing for Arsenal. He actually played all 46 League games
for Town in three successive seasons between 1997 and 2000. Yes
he certainly does look as if he could be "one of the worst keepers in
the league".......?

Well he ranks in my bottom 5.

I've seen him in about 20 odd matches and have never been in the least bit convinced. Have no idea what happened to him after his move to Arsenal. Seems to have massive indecision and is quite error-prone. Too long picking up his wages on the bench i suppose.

I'm not denying he was one of the best young keepers around 10 years ago, but not anymore.

Just don't rate him at all.

Jules is part of the Palace and we love him but if he gets a stab at the prem he should take it. Can't help but feel we'd be a stab closer to not getting back there without him mind but thats about 4 seasons away minimum I'd think

28-06-2010, 01:55 PM
Once a brilliant keeper, now a pretty poor one. Plenty of players do this (Jeffers, Oster) so it is pointless saying he was good once. It is how he is now that matters, and from what I've seen that is nowhere near as good as Jules.
Very probably very lazy journalism involving two Wrights.

He won their (Ipswich Town's) player and supporters player of the year award in 2008/09.

Despite being injured for a few months this season past, he's also been linked with a possible move to West Ham.

Overall, doesn't sound too bad to me. Good, solid, and experienced keeper. If we do sign him then I feel it will be to provide healthy competition for Jules.

I would hope an experienced manager like GB has enough sense to know selling one of prized assets to QPR would not go down well, especially when we don't have to do it now. If however he can get them to pay well above the odds it could prove a masterstroke a la Morrison to Brum of course.

off topic, but still goalkeeper related...

what is Iain Turner up to these days? We had him on loan from Everton and he looked very good indeed. Haven't heard about him for ages - is he still there? Would he be worth a look (if Jules goes)?

He is Scottish as well I think, so would suit GB!

Wright will not want to play back to Speroni. We don't want another unhappy keeper. That is what he will be if he comes to Palace. No one is going to be better than Jules.

I would rather go for a younger keeper who would be happy to be understudy for at least a year or two.

Completely agree. If Burley wants a reserve keeper then it would make sense for him to be on the same wages as Flahaven or lower - I imagine Wright would be on/wanting higher wages than Flahaven. Therefore either Wright doesn't join or we're losing Speroni.

1. Because his wages would be too high for a back-up.
2. Because his wages would be too high for a back-up.
3. Because his wages would be too high for a back-up.

Any other reasons required? Unless he will be replacing Speroni, he will not be joining Palace as we would be spending far too much on a back-up keeper. Someone like Flahavan again who is dependable but cheap will be what we are looking or even looking to bring in a young keeper to keep Speroni on his toes.

Not if it leaves us with an inferior keeper. Can't stop the ball with a bank balance. If we needed the money, fine, if Speroni wanted a move, he's earned it. As we don't need the money now (unless SP is telling porkies) and Speroni want's to stay (unless he's telling porkies), what;s the point?

Wojciech Szczesny (had to Google it for the spelling ;)). For those who haven't heard of him its pronounced "Woy-Check Sir-Ches-knee" and he is bloody good.

I've heard rumblings that Arsenal rate him so highly that they think he could replace Fabianski as the second choice keeper at the Arse and even possibly challenge Almunia for the number one jersey before too long.

But if both players have made a decison to leave what can he do? I am not saying they have, but both surely would have premier clubs touting themselves to their agents who in turn would be polishing the money jar and printing out the get rich quick cards. Although in truth Julian might want to step up for different reasons such as to test himself at the top level again before his time runs out.
Anyway, would be gutted to lose either but it will happen eventually.

Can't help feeling that Burley's war chest given to him by CPFC2010 will be limited, at least in the first year of new tenure. That means Burley will have to wheel and deal with the player resources and cash he has available, whether this seems unpalatable to the fans or not.

It was widely expected when we were on the brink of extinction that Jules would leave. Indeed, given the rave press he received during our fight for survival, I suspect his head would have been turned towards other "options" had we gone under as a club. This alone might have fuelled his personal ambition, not least because a transfer to a premiership club might secure financial future for himself and his family. That's the sort of reality you simply cannot ignore.

I suspect it is a real possibility that Jules might go for a "big fee", which would allow Burley to strengthen the outfield, an area so underresourced last season that we were struggling to fill the subs bench for some games.

Losing a 100pct quality keeper for a big fee and getting a 90pct championship quality keeper for free is worth how many goals saved per season in comparison? Two, five, ten? It is impossible to say.

But having inadequate resources in the outfield, especially with experienced battlers like Derry having gone, would surely leave us even more exposed than losing Jules, much as none of us want to see him leave.

I think in this first season under CPFC2010, some tough choices such as this suggestion might well have to be made. All will be revealed in due course, and we the fans will just have to live with it. It isn't our money being spent on acquiring the club or in establishing the playing staff. Just continue to be supportive with whatever we end up with, favourite players departing or otherwise.

I tend to think it's better to have a permanent keeper on the staff as no 1. Goalies are so important in organising the defence from set-pieces and communicating with defenders in tight spots. The prospect of having a young keeper on loan as our number one, however keen and talented, gives me premonitions of leaking unnecessary goals due to misunderstandings.

Good post. I dont like the idea of losing Speroni and replacing with Wright (not sure he is that good) and have to think back to all the 'goals' that Speroni somehow stopped going in and how many points that saved us...but our outfield is so depleted and we can't rely on youngsters as some would hope so need to bring quite a few in!

Indeed, given the rave press he received during our fight for survival, I suspect his head would have been turned towards other "options" had we gone under as a club. This alone might have fuelled his personal ambition, not least because a transfer to a premiership club might secure financial future for himself and his family. That's the sort of reality you simply cannot ignore.

I suspect it is a real possibility that Jules might go for a "big fee", which would allow Burley to strengthen the outfield, an area so underresourced last season that we were struggling to fill the subs bench for some games.

Losing a 100pct quality keeper for a big fee and getting a 90pct championship quality keeper for free is worth how many goals saved per season in comparison? Two, five, ten? It is impossible to say.

But having inadequate resources in the outfield, especially with experienced battlers like Derry having gone, would surely leave us even more exposed than losing Jules, much as none of us want to see him leave.

I think in this first season under CPFC2010, some tough choices such as this suggestion might well have to be made. All will be revealed in due course, and we the fans will just have to live with it. It isn't our money being spent on acquiring the club or in establishing the playing staff. Just continue to be supportive with whatever we end up with, favourite players departing or otherwise.

agree with this depending on the fee. IF we get a big fee that allows GB to sign a few good players that will really add to the squad, maybe give him more to keep ambrose, danns and clyne... all while replacing jules with wright, who is/was a decent keeper on a free then its good bussiness and would probably see us stronger overall next season. Dont know how much the magic figure might be, but there must be a point at which it is in our interest. Jules is my fave player though, so hope he stays.

I wouldn't be happy if a change of GKs was being done out of choice. I think Wright is okay - no more than that - but Jules is better and still improving. If it's because Jules wants to go then I suppose it's a decent enough replacement considering we would get cash on top to spend elsewhere. It better be a decent fee though - although I fear it won't be much more than 1 million (same for Clyne if he goes). Should be 2 million each at least but we probably won't get that.

If that's all we are offered for Speroni and Clyne then we won't sell. We don't have to and we could get more later in the window if we want to. 1m for either is taking the piss and as we are exiting administration so we are not going to be held to ramsom.

29-06-2010, 10:02 AM
I will be extremely upset if Wright's brought in to replace Speroni, especially if Jules is allowed to go for a small fee. In today's inflated market a player like him should go for 8-9 million when you see what Premiership clubs spend on mediocre players.

If Burley's sat down with Jules and been told that he will not resign under any circumstance, then by all means sell him but they should concentrate their efforts on having him sign a new deal instead.

sydnsteve
29-06-2010, 10:05 AM
IF Wright comes, it would be a given that Jules was going. He clearly will not want to be a back up keeper.
If it is for anything like 1 million it is a big mistake, as Jules is far and away the better keeper of the 2.

Nigelbrag
29-06-2010, 11:39 AM
The perfect scenario for all us fans would be Palace can keep players like Speroni, Clyne and Ambrose and add to them with quality players. However, the reality is we have just come out of administration, and need to be cautious and to ensure we never go back there again. To do so we have to balance the books, and if that means we have to sell these players possibly to premiership clubs, and on much better wages they currently get, how could we deny them that opportunity. Hopefully we are now in a situation whereby we do not have to accept silly offers from clubs and they go for a decent fee. I am a huge fan of the three players mentioned and would be very sorry to see leave, but from what i hear GB intends to bring in Richard Wright who not so long ago played for England and Wenger payed 8m for, also West Ham are reported trying to sign, so to get him to Palace is quite a coup, also James Harper, Clinton Morrison and the midfielder from Scotland who's name i cant think off are coming all arriving on frees, still leaving money raised from the sales in the kitty to be spent when needed. That to me is sound business sense by George Burley and needs a pat on the back.

to get an experienced championship keeper in whos 32 on a free and worked with and enjoyed his best years under george burely, and sell another for 1-1.5million to me makes perfect sense.

id love him to go to the premiership, its the least he deserves but from the point of view of the club, if they can get wright for the same wages as speroni is on they will have made 1-1.5m to help pay off the ground, kps season ticket/match ticket prices down, or hopefully reinvest in an area that needs looking at, (whatever they decide to spend it on really)

its a decision i would welcome

Speroni signed a decent contract only last year, so if he was sold, it would be for a decent figure, but my thinking is that GB is just trying to sign decent players for FREE and making sure we have better than average replacements in case of injury or poor form, which will keep everyone on their toes.

1.5m/2m now rather than nothing in a year and the chance to use that to build a squad is 'inept'?

We are no longer in the SJ 'success now' period so we are not just thinking of this season. IF and its a big IF Jules is not going to be with us for the 2011/12 season where is the point in not getting money for him. Let alone not knowing who we could replace him with next summer.

He has been a decent keeper for a number of years and did not let Hull down in the Premiership - as much as we all love Jules he does not have a great record in the Prem outside of Scotland (if any scouts are reading this!) - did Kenny go for about a million to QPR (undisclosed but rumoured).

I think Jules will sign a new contract if offered and if we do sign Wright it will be the first time Jules has had serious competition since the departure of Gabor. It should improve both their games. Every times Jules gets hurt I swallow hard and Burley may just be a manager who wants competition for places. It was nice to see the interview with the other Wright mention that GB would be bringing in players who could play a passing game - unlike Warnock who never liked Jose for trying to play football rather than hoofball

The point of not getting money is keeping a cracking player even if was for just one more year. There are quite a few changes that have to be made this season, but goalkeeper isn't one of them. We need a degree of stability around which to make the unavoidable changes. If we change too much in one go it just might leave us with a team that can't cope. Forget "success now", we'd lose that money in one year if we went down.

Having said that, I think Speroni will stay and sign a new deal, he said he wanted to after the Wednesday game, so unless Burley has something amazing up his sleeve, better than Richard Wright, I think he'll stay.

He has been a decent keeper for a number of years and did not let Hull down in the Premiership - as much as we all love Jules he does not have a great record in the Prem outside of Scotland (if any scouts are reading this!) - did Kenny go for about a million to QPR (undisclosed but rumoured).

I think Jules will sign a new contract if offered and if we do sign Wright it will be the first time Jules has had serious competition since the departure of Gabor. It should improve both their games. Every times Jules gets hurt I swallow hard and Burley may just be a manager who wants competition for places. It was nice to see the interview with the other Wright mention that GB would be bringing in players who could play a passing game - unlike Warnock who never liked Jose for trying to play football rather than hoofball

New contracts for McCarthy, Ambrose, Danns and Speroni were put on the table on July 9th., but Danns and Speroni's still remain unsigned. 47 day's is a long time to be messing arround.

Gemany's invading Poland

The first time, it was instigated by Hitler, so who is it now? I didn't realise that Palace train so late at night either.

I think "them" refers to the team. Dunno, semantics really.

It certainly is for two players who have gone on record,more than once,to say that they want to remain with us.Especially Jules whe has said it would take a big club to lure him away.
A case of agents holding out for their pound of flesh.:veryangry

Maybe they want to be on par with the top earner, blvd to be Lee at the time the contracts were offered..... Lee having gone perhaps, just perhaps all parties can now agree

Really hope they both sign..... And soon !!!
