View Full Version : Stern John released

He seems to have vanished. Not on anybody on BBS retained list, not been announced he's been released, not been offered a new deal. Was only on a one year deal wasn't he? If so must be out of contract, do we just assume he's gone?

We will hear from him if his bonus is 2 minutes late or 5p less than he thought it should be .... I still havn't got rid of the image of him missing in front of the Wednesday goal with Ambrose unmarked , on side and screaming at him to square it to him. If Wednesday had taken their corner at the end and scored John would have been on the end of an entirely different contract :grrr:

Could and should have scored more goals. One of his 2 gilt edged chances at Derby and we would have been safe before the final day. Missing when it was almost easier to score against WBA could have ensured we were safe before the last day. His failure to score 1 on 1 at Wednesday might things far more stressful than needed.

I think he was last seen playing in the World Cup for Nigeria under the name Yakubu.

This.

My two main memories will of course be when he was outragously greedy at Hilsborough (but still nearly scored) and away at watford.

When he scored that goal the Palace fans went absolutely mental and you could see on his face how much that goal meant to him :lux:

I don't think I'd like to see him back here, but I wish him all the luck in the world with his future.

Why be greedy when you have no appetite, or were his eyes actually bigger than his belly that day?

indeed and lets not foget him being entirely to blame for their equaliser by not picking up his marker and ridiculously straying offside to give them an opportunity to launch yet another onslaught on our goal.

Probably one of the worst 10 minutes on a pitch ever by a player. Fact.

Probably one of the worst 10 minutes on a pitch ever by a player. Fact.Considering what could have happened?? He could have basically finished the club off!

I guess any of the player's possible mistakes could have done that considering how high the stakes were.

His goal at Watford was so, so important though.

Cheers Stern, good luck in all future endeavours etc etc!

I was really chuffed when we got him, probably merely to pee off the inbreds from Bermondsey, more than his footballing skills. Not sure what he was like before the elbow injury, but when he came back he looked bloody awful.

The goal at Watford redeems him though, in my book. I hope we don't re-sign him. Goodbye & good luck Stern.

It took a good save from the keeper followed by a goal line clearance to stop him scoring - how nearly do you want? Yes, he was greedy, but most strikers are.

01-07-2010, 02:42 PM
He fitted in very well to our formation as he floated into midfield and allowed Andrew and Scannell to make forward runs either side. However he is also lazy and slow and greedy so he was positionally the right type of player to fill in for Lee, but other than a decent touch he lacked the other necessary attributes for a CCC striker.

Lee, Scannell, Zaha, Pinney, Andrew has a contract offer and BG is in talks with Morriosn, so how many can we afford?

Will John offer us anything different? IMO if Morrison does sign then John would offer nothing different. Plus Morrison is not a 1st name like all our oth strikers ;)

Agree with your comment about Sheff Wed being exciting because he did not put away 2 other good chances at Derby, or his one against WBA or the 1 on 1 at hillsborough but in retort to single handedly changing the game there is some balance to the argument against.

Peerless in terms of the amount of awfulness squeezed into the space of a mere ten minutes. Not saying we haven't seen worse players in the red and blue, or even that Stern's contribution as a whole was universally poor. Just saying that "performance" at Hillsborough, when taken in isolation, was mind-bogglingly crap.

06-07-2010, 03:39 PM
He did but teh reason he did not play before teh last few games was because that point was near. Guilfoyle only allowed him to be played again once John had agreed the clause would not be invoked. Apparently.

Quite right. If Wednesday had scored another from the corner that wasn't taken, Stern John would have needed a new identity and relocation to Mars.

To be fair, Stern John never really had a decent run in the side so we don't know what he would have been like if he had got into a groove. From what we did see he wasn't great but he wasn't bad either. Time and age are against him though so I suspect the wages could be put to better use.

I think it would be it be fair to assume his wages were high last season as he turned down a offer at Southampton to join us. He was probably on about 8k a week on a one yearer. The problem for me is I can't ever see him being match fit again. Do we want someone who is only going to be able to play 45 minutes?

I think the whole story of Stern John having disappeared "in the carribbean somewhere" says it all about the guy - laid back and not particularly bothered. Good on him if he's not bothered about it, but he could have at least returned GB's calls, even through his agent or something.

Oh well, he can go knowing he did us a turn with his couple of goals at the business end of last season. See ya later!

Agreed on both parts.

It could have been better for him and Palace. if he didn't dislocate his elbow, as he looked quite impressive on his home debut against Plymouth, especially when Lee was injured.

Still it looks like he would have been a bit of a Hot and Cold player performance wise.

Thanks for the important goals Stern.

Thanks for the first goal at Watford away.

Palace fans went ballastic, and it sent us on our way that night :p :lux:

Without his immense performance in the second half that day I don't believe we would have stayed up. He wasn't great most of the rest of the time, but he paid us back that afternoon. Good luck to him.
That, and the looping header down our end at Watford were worth all the bad performances. I nearly had a coronary when the ball was trickling along the goal line at Hillsborough.

any player not hungry to play and keen to work with the manager doesnt deserve to wear the palace shirt

We don't know that he wasn't. All we know is that he was not contactable.

The system we played last year never suited him. He is a player who needs the ball to feet when he can be highly effective. He was ineffective for Palace probably because he was never really fit enough after the dislocated shoulder on the first day of the season.

And Watford. I agree.

People will remember him leaving Purse but only because we were punished in that instance. Derry did exactly the same to Jeffers who should have scored but luckily, he failed miserably.

I'll rather remember the buzz I felt with his goals at Watford and Derby.

And when he rattled the bar at Derby, wow, that's was so very closely one of the best goals scored by a Palace player. It never went in and look at how much a lot of us speak about it!

Good news indeed.

Did we really need a 34 year old fat man who is frequently injured? No.
