Was a very promising youngster while at Man City. Has lost his way a little bit recently. Reminds me of the signings Steve Coppell used to target. He has something to prove and rediscover his old form.

Hardly!

We have Paddy, Wright, Clyne, Hills and Davis. Hardly a lot of options, if we sign this lad and the one from Southend we'll still need one more body at least.

I'd use one of the academy as the 8th option. A short term loan would help while Hills is out

If there's any truth in this then I'd find it strange that 2010 would give their blessing to any player who's clearly prone to injuries and will cost the club money. Regardless of his pedigree and previous experience, if he's going to come in and go on the wage bill then ends up being a sick note, its a waste of money. Plain and simple!

I heard about this yesterday too, but he's had three very injury prone seasons at Burnley and that's why they released him.
He looked promising at Man City in his younger days, but this would be a very risky signing.
I think they let him go in the middle of May and no one seems to have signed him yet!

Neillo's Son
05-07-2010, 08:16 AM
I hope this is rubbish, I'm sure he's not a bad defender but there's no point wasting wages on a left back who's only fit for 20 games a season.

We did remarkably well out of Clint Hill considering his previous injuries, we're not likely to get away with that again though.

Here's an opportunity to possibly sign a premiership quality left back and all I see on here is pessimism. CPFC isn't exactly flushed with money at the moment and GB is doing a great job in filling the back room jobs and finding the best players available to plug a whole bucketful of gaps in the squad for free!

Sure, Stephen Jordan has had a few injuries and so have many other players; it's a pitiful of the job, but with good physio and training, I don't see the past affecting his future and before anyone signs for palace, they will have to have a medical and pass it, or the deal is off.

Personally, I see this as a very good possible signing.

Crystal Palace are moving for Burnley defender Stephen Jordan.

The former Manchester City fullback has been linked with Blackpool since being released by the Clarets.

However, the Lancashire Telegraph says Palace boss George Burley is close to a deal for Jordan.

It`s Tribalfootball.....:hmph:

Seems like a decent number of appearences to me. The last 59 ( out of a potential 84) were as part of an exciting, low budget promotion winning team and then as part of a Prem team that were in contention for survival up to the time of his injury and who played very well at home in the first half of the season, gaining a few high profile scalps in the process including Man U. He offers a lot more than Clint Hill has going forward and can defend well. Sign him up !

We were told Clint Hill was injury prone before he joined us...

Is Jordan a better left-back than Hill? Yes, much. He's probably on a level or cheaper in terms of wages, he's quicker, and much better going forward, with a decent cross.

Besides, all being well, come December time Lee Hills will hopefully return and star in a team that will likely play to his strengths.

Trying to find out what he was mainly out injured with. If it was his knees, maybe they could set up a pay as you play sort of contract, but anything else he would probably be worth a gamble on, if his wage demands aren't excessive.

Never scored a career goal :D Even Lawrence got 6 !! But then agaon lawrence has player for 8 years longer.

In Burley we trust :D

Yes.

Surely someone who's been turning out fairly regularly in the Premiership for the last 6 years is going to be of some value to us. None of our back line last season had that kind of experience. Also he and Paddy were together at Man City for a few years (though Paddy wasn't getting into the first team). Would love to know what he thought of him.

Are we actually allowed to play them yet? I know we can sign them, but we can't register them until the (hopefully) formalities with the FL are finalised, which are still a few weeks away. Does anyone know whether we can play unregistered players in pre season friendlies? We have played trialists in the past, so the answer might well be yes.

I trust GB but I've never been impressed when I've seen Jordan play. A bit of a liability.

However, I'm sure I'm wrong and will support him from Day 1 if he joins. He was part of a team that won promotion so I'm sure that I'm way off the radar.

We can, yes, play unregistered players in non-competitive games (this includes our pre-season fixtures). However, until the legal formalities are dealt with, we can't use them in an Npower Championship match.

Although, the legal sh*t should all be cleared up before the start of the season, so effectively it will make absolutely no difference. :p

Imagine where Palace would have been if Dowie, Taylor and even Warnock hadn't wasted big money when they had it ? ( although Warnock, to be fair, did very well when on a tight budget ) Steve Parish was so right when he pointed out Wenger's scouting policy to make sure signings were right. This sounds like we now have ownership with serious business experience and acumen outside of the beautiful game and who aren't afraid to apply it where it's needed.

This Jordan story reminds me of Cisse (hijacked by Redknapp), remind me what a roaring success he was at Pompey.

And Venables (a few years) after him.

Once he got us into division 1, and he was given serious money to spend, he blew it on the likes of Francis, Flanagan, Barron and Allen - although the latter did go on to be successful elsewhere.

BBC making a comment for no reason

"BBC Sport understands the club could start the Championship season without any further points penalties, having been deducted nine points by the Premier League last campaign"

Of course they wont suffer a further points reduction, unless the HMRC overturn their CVA and they end up exiting without an agreed one

Then they will suffer a minimum 15? point deduction (though that wont be until sometime during the season)

Pompey have 18 players currently in their first team squad and are allowed to sign players to bring them up to the FL recognised minimum for a squad to compete in the league. So it is up to them whether they want to have Jordan as one of those two or in place of Utaka or Diop or any other who want to go.
Any player contemplating a move to Pompey though seriously needs their head testing. Looks like they will lose their CVA and drop 17 points at the end of October and their new potential owners may not want to hang around either. Jordan really has been quite silly here as we will most likely fill the LB position by next week. That's what you get for getting greedy in the Premiership though.

Hes opted to go to Sheffield UTD. Cruel blow for Pompey. Do they have a keeper yet ?

If he tells you it is about to arrive, that's when you really need to start worrying ;)

In the Championship team of the week for last Saturday (as were Clyne and Ambrose), ahead of us facing t'Blades tomorrow.

Completely irrelevant, but what the hell...

How did you resist the temptation to put Flanagan and Allen Together?

And Barron was originally going to be the understudy for Allan Knight, but it didn't work out for the 'Barron Knights'.

Just been released from Sheffield United, along with Richard Wright and another bloke.

That move worked out well for him.

Sheff Utd releasing players in the midst of a desparate battle for survival. I bet their finances aren't great.

Kevin Blackwell spent it on crap like Ched Evans (£3m).

The club announced in February 2010 that they're some £46m in debt, and then in November that they'd made an annual loss of £18.7m - truly astonishing and, for Blades fans, very worrying.

They aren't in a good position. They've sold of the hotel they owned and are trying to get rid of Ferencvaros and Chengdu Blades.

i suppose its about a million a year cut from the wage bill, but the timing does seem odd with only 7 games left. perhaps they are trying to create a siege mentality with the players who are left? either that or they are totally knacked financially, which seems more likely.

After the game in November, Sheffield United fans thought it was funny to ridicule us for our previous financial mess and the luck they experienced in that match. Bollocks to them, their wanking off Warnock fans, and the club in general.

I hope they stay in League One with the likes of Southampton, Charlton and Sheffield Wednesday for as long as possible.

I would love for them to be relegated.
