I think this is one striker that could really do well for us.......

he has lived in Croydon before

Would hate it if he went to Millwall

Norwich is hardly north though and seeing as he's Canadian he must be use to travelling and adapting. I've only seen glimses here and there, i'm not convinced he'll be worth the punt at whatever silly price Gills want. I've heard 750k. No thanks.

£750k would be great business IMO .......Its the sort of gamble ( although I dont think it would be one ) we should be going for

Apparently Burley has shown a bit of interest in him, in his last year of contract at Gillingham, could get for a fairly smallish fee, could be worth the gamble.

Got 14 league goals in a relegated side last season which is pretty decent. £750k is a big gamble for a player who's never played above League 1 though.

And where exactly is the the 750K coming from?

Yours and a few other peoples memories, must be ultra short mate, assuming you understood what Steve Parish and Goerge Burley said just a couple of weeks ago.

Palace will field a team of freebie's or players costing less than 100K at most (assuming they're worth it), along with the crop of players still under contract, that's for sure. Forget the big ideas and wise up.

Personally I see next season as being the "dirty dozen (or so)" with more than a touch of "the good, the bad and the ugly" who will make it happen through "true Grit". Just get behind them and help make it happen. :p

Jason
06-07-2010, 09:38 PM
Not convinced on this one to be honest. I was actually really keen for us to get him when he was at Rushden, and was a bit dissappointed that we didn't go in for him for the sake of £150k. His form at Gillingham though suggests that the decision not to sign him was probably the right one. He's done well there, but not well enough to suggest that he's any more than a good League one player.

If he's going to cost £750k, he's simply not worth the gamble imho, although at £250k or so (perhaps in Jan if he doesn't move in the summer), he probably is, if for no other reason that he is young enough to develop further

Where did you get that figure from? I seem to remember SP saying money is available if Burley needs it, and as long as it makes financial sense.

£750,000 for a player not proven above the relegation zone in League One? Remember Luke Varney? Remember Clive Platt? Remember Izale McLeod? All players 'proven' in League One that have been about as useful as Wayne Andrews in this division.

07-07-2010, 03:46 AM
I don't think we'd spend anything near 750,000 on anyone this summer. And looking at the players we've already signed, I don't think we'd need to. There's so many free agents out there right now.

It's a good policy too. Saving on these transfer fees is boosting our ability to offer attractive personal terms. Even if we keep losing players, provided we have a decent scouting network and are able to anticipate replacements, and provided we sell players before their contracts expire, the future will be very bright for Palace.

Whenever people have broken down in tears at the prospect of losing players like Ben Watson, I've never really understood it. Players like Moses, yes, are so hard to replace, but if you look hard enough, most players can be easily replaced.

Does it? I don't think so when there are so many decent players available for nix. That's where the clever money is and probably why Steve Parish is rich and most of us aren't! Why flash the cash when you don't need too?

Please tell me where all these free , natural goal scoring ,young ,fast forwards are mate :rolleyes: ??? ... 83 goals in 190 games is not that bad even if its in League 1/2 ...it says he knows where the goal is ,the last time we had someone scoring that sort of numbers he came from Birmingham reserves the rest as they say is history ! ....SP said some money would be available and that GB had the wage bill of the players that have left to play with ...we must have saved £480k pa on Carle's wages alone ....so IMO £750k which is what someone on here said Gills might take , is well worth the punt

I'd be happy with him offering about 300,000 for him. Nothing else, if we were going to spend the £750,000 like people are saying hes worth or whatever, invest that in a player in a similiar position to AJ was, playing in the top league with no real scoring record, make sure he has pace and is younger then 26. Thats the sort of player i'd be happy to see us linked with. It hasn't worked out in the past, got a clean slate at palace to prove himself.

On the premise that we have now seen the following exit the club and their POSSIBLE weekly wages being "circa".

Carle - 10k
Derry - 5k
Butterfield - 4-5k
Lawrence - 3k
Hill - 4k
Ertl - 3k

Would this then not put us in a position to finance a purchase such as Simeon Jackson

AJ was not playing regulary in the top flight when we got him , he was surplus to Birminghams requirements hence he was the "makeweight "in the deal that took clinton to Brum , FYI Simeon Jackson has pace and is only 23, plus has played and scored regulary in League 1 which you could argue is better that Birmingham reserves and as you say AJ didnt score regulary for them , plus why would we want a striker with "no real scoring record " ?? :eek:

Some good, worthy arguments for and against, here. I'd be up for the guy IF we could rob them or stagger the payments i.e. £400k up front, then £50k for every 25 starts until £600k is paid, or something. £750k up front is a lot for us at the moment, surely.

I am sure they'd consider that, bearing in mind their relegation. All depends on the level of interest in the fella.

Burley has also admitted he needs to strengthen the left side and hopes to add another striker to the squad. He is due to speak with Manchester City left back Stephen Jordan about a possible switch in the next few days, while Palace legend Clinton Morrison and Gillingham forward Simeon Jackson are other potential targets.

I think if we could sign Jackson for a reasonable fee and add to that Morrison on a free aswell i think we would have a good range of strikers heading into the new season.

I think Jackson certainly has the potential to become ven better and think given the chance could excel, i'm hoping if reports are true that he is one of the players on the radar for Burley.

What I see is a guy who is not a one trick pony. There is some power. He can get round a player. he can poach. He can head them in. Better judges will tell if he can do these thing higher up and if the asking price is an acceptable gamble in our situation. Also can anyone we already have offer these things. I was more impressed by the video than I expected to be.

Crunchie
09-07-2010, 03:46 PM
One of those type of players that looks a bit raw, like Wright and AJ first came to Palace. Can go either way.

It would be a good idea, if we can pull it off with a 750k signing to be say £250k initial fee. The depending on goals, assists, promotion etc, would add to the Gills coffers another 1/2 million, hypothetically. :)

I agree with the first paragraph.

Surely asking price (not that i would agree with the valuations if accurate) would prevent this, plain and simple.

If Jackson and Morrison are the two we are mainly interested in then i don't know which i'd go for.

Clinton = Free transfer, Palace boy, proven at a high level, goal every 3.35 games, consistantly hits double figures, accused of 'laziness', playing out his final years as a pro, too old to shine?

Simeon = Expensive transfer, Unproven at high level, goal every 2.29 games, rough diamond or uneccesary gamble, 23 years old and coming into his peak?

I say we complete our protracted move for Nugent and forget these two. ;)

What did palace receive for AJ?

It's all relevant to what they have achieved, regardless of where they did it and without doubt, he is a top class goal poacher and they are a rare breed.

It's now up to George Burley and Steve Parish to decide on what they consider affordable and/or prudent and if I'm honest, it may depend on letting one of our better players (Clyne - Ambrose - Danns) move on at a decent fee. This way Palace could afford both Simeon Jackson and Owen Garvan, with a bit of cash left over. We need to think outside the box about this.

Obviously you have to ignore the 113 goals he scored for us over 2 stints, making him the 4th highest goalscorer in Palace history. Oh, and 4 goals away from being 3rd highest. Local lad from the youth system, who's mum supports the club. But yeah, f*ck him :rolleyes:

I said there were "quality players available for nix" and I still maintain that opinion. We have already signed a few and IMO we will sign a few more.

I would agree that there are quality PLAYERS available for "nix" but as I said , I have not seen a young ,fast STRIKER , who's got a goal scoring record like Simeon Jackson's ( all be it in league 1/2) available for free, so , as I said originally IMO £750k ( which is what someone mentioned on here ) is a good price for that sort of player , especially when you look at what has been paid for players in the past

Darren ambrose wants to stay with palace and will sign a new deal the new owners thrash out by Monday.

No word on nathaniel clyne but my sources assure me he'll be starting the season for palace.

Jordan from burnley is all but done, the delay being caused by a freak traffic accident and I've heard that palace have had an increased undisclosed bid for owen garvan accepted.

Clinton morrison is due a medical on Monday afternoon for palace but with stern john being released another striker is needed and I'm informed that gb is prep. a bid for Simeon Jackson although he may face competition from championship new boys millwall and Norwich, however he favours to stay in London and palace is his preferred destination but money may be an object.

Last bit of info I have I'd that lee hills will be leaving to barnsley, a little odd after he's been injured for months.

That's all for now I'll keep you updated.

I admit, he does look sharp and really does get stuck in, but with just another year left on his contract, I think he's worth no more than 400K or even a tad less, but I'll leave the offer up to George Burley, who appears to know what he's about and the true value of a player. ;) Also, I think football is just beginning to realise that the ridiculous prices that were being paid, coupled with outrageous salaries is a thing of the past. It's now a case of survival of the fittest.

I disagree with this - Morrison 'skanks' around the pitch and likes to be vocal and wave his arms about in frustration which can be annoying. In form, he makes up for all of that. But I think that's often viewed as if he has a huge chip on his shoulder which IMO isn't the case. Chip about what?

Anyway, being a south london boy it's his birthright to skank with the best of them :D

I have a friend who went to school with him. He said he was an arrogant tosser. He also said he couldn't believe he made it as a pro footballer, as they used to play in the same team and there were better players around him!

Obviously Jackson has had the last laugh, and I'd be happy to see him in a Palace shirt if he can supply us with goals.

I'd much rather go for a player like him than another Kuqi or Macken....

Link (http://www.thisiscroydontoday.co.uk/football/Lewis-Price-join-Palace-Speroni-s-number/article-2413400-detail/article.html?)

GEORGE Burley has confirmed former Derby County keeper Lewis Price will join Palace in the next few days.

Price, 25, will be signed as Julian Speroni's number two after impressing the Eagles boss during training.

Speaking after Palace's 1-0 defeat to Crawley Town last night Burely said that the Price deal should be finalised by the end of the week, and he was hopeful that one or two other signings would also be in place by the time Chelsea visit Selhurst Park on Saturday.

"We're at the initial stages of trying to build a squad back up that was badly depleted," said the Eagles boss. "When we arrived we had 11 first team players, we've added three and I'm hoping for another five before the season starts.

"Lewis Price we're looking to complete that for the number two keeper, we're talking to a couple of midfield players, got our eye on a striker. We're working on things."

If we were going to get anyome else in I'd go for an experienced defender as well. Goals against could still be crucial - especially of we have to go through the play offs as those games are usually very tight and one goal over the two legs could make all the difference.

Billy Davies froze him out at Forest by putting youngster Karl Darlow in. I don't think Camp had any options than give it a go at Norwich (and he did get some games in the end because John Ruddy was injured for most of the season and then Mark Bunn got sent off for handball and then got injured too) or sit on the Forest bench.

http://www.ipswichstar.co.uk/sport/ipswich_town_priced_out_of_a_move_for_lee_camp_1_2 203959 - Ipswich interested but can't afford him apparently.

Back to Jackson - with Muzza unlikely to play again in 2013, I'd be making serious efforts to bring him in whether we go up or not.

Jason
21-05-2013, 08:15 PM
Very good player, and a very different type of striker to anything we have at the moment. Would be a brilliant signing for the championship imho, and would have a role to play as a squad player even if we went up. Still only just turned 26 to, so far from a has been journeyman.

I originally wanted us to sign him when he was at Rushden, so would be pleased if we finally got him now. Like Yorkshire Eagle, I jist have a sense he'd do well here, without being able to offer anything beyond his good career record to back that up.

Saw him play quite abit for gillingham and he looked very good, one game in particular against a strong villa side in The fa cup he was brilliant. Would love this, especially on a free. A few others being released at Norwich might be worth a look at, francomb the right back and korey smith.

Why do we rate him? I am being dismissive, but have any of us seen enough of him to want him so much?

I've always liked him, on a free I can't really see why not in all honesty.

Does he not need a wage?

SP has said if we get promoted we'll be going down the Norwich/WBA/Swansea route, so this is the kind of player I can imagine us singing (whether we go up or not actually).

I think he'd do well here. He has bags of energy and is a good finisher. If we brought in him and SEB I'd be happy.

I'm not sure he's quite as good as people seem to think.

Decent enough in the Championship I guess, but he was in a pretty good side in Norwich & not really the first choice forward. Leroy Lita effect.

without lukaku and michu swansea and wba would be doomed

simeon jackson isnt that kind of player so we would need actual TALENT that will be the star of this team, not a gamble signing like jackson

I think SP also said we would be spending half our money on players.
We have to look at better than him if we are to compete.
Be okay if we are still in this league though.

He seems to have done ok at Norwich when hes had the chance but with the amount he's played, wouldn't reckon too many have seen enough of him to know exactly how good or bad he is.

As for wages etc, the experts wont be too far away telling you how much he will 'demand' to come and play for Palace so be patient!:D

When you consider that equates to a whole team of eleven players at 4m each it shows how crazy the money in the Premieshit is:eek:

What these teams have done though throughout their stays in the Premiership is keep the nucleus' of their squads together that took them up and buy the top Championship players who want to live up to their billing, as opposed to the likes of QPR who just bought experienced journeymen who were only willing to pick up a final pay packet, and thus have no desire.
Also buying these types of players would mean that even if we went down we'd have a top quality Championship side to get us back up again (look at WBA- spent four or so years being 'boing boing' and now after slowly building their squad they now have an established Premiership one).
Buying someone like Jackson would fit that mould, even if we went down then we'd have a striker who would be of a good enough standard to get us back up.

Just been on Twitter that Lomas at Millwall want him. Personally think he could be a good player for us on a free

Was hoping we'd show interest in him. Good striker, especially on a free. Better options than Wilb and dare I say it KP

Think we should give him a go ..... Lots of good things said about him by Norwich fans .. Free and would fit into our pay structure .. Not given a chance in the prem by Norwich really so why not give him the chance to prove them wrong

I see he's signed a 2 year contract for Eintracht Braunschweig. I had a feeling deep down he'd sign for them, even though I've never heard of them.

Top division club

2012–13 should prove even more successful: on the second matchday Braunschweig took over a direct promotion spot and kept it for the rest of the season. On the 31st matchday the club secured its return to the Bundesliga after 28 years in the second and third divisions with a 1–0 away win over FC Ingolstadt 04.

Good for him. Nice to see a British player try playing abroad

Lived in England since he was 15, has only played for English clubs - and in fact he was born in Jamaica.

He is pretty much as English as Zaha - just chose to play for a different national team. He has always been a British based player, so my comment still stands despite his chosen allegiance at national level.

Yes, exactly what sky said yesterday also. Would have been a good signing
