If it was the number 6, I was very impressed.

Although he didn't come out for the 2nd half, I'd like to think it was because Burley had seen enough to be impressed, the Italian (No8) also had a good game, and I feel both would be welcome additions.

Yes the Slovian no.3 looked a cultured player, and would suit the passing game that GB wants to play, and if available on a free i would certainly bring him in.

The no.8 had an element of dwarf to him from the top row of the Upper Tier, could anyone closer to the action confirm? Not that its necessarily a bad thing, dwarves are quite useful round the place. As was he, out of the 3 trialists he looked the best and certainly didn't appear like a 35 year old. Defo worth another look.

The other two seemed alright as well

The guy in the photo in this thread is the bloke who wore 6 and played in the centre of midfield. I thought he was really impressive, as was the Italian bloke he played alongside - especially as they were up against Essien and Mikel. I'd like us to sign them both up.

The No. 3 was awful in my opinion. He looked like he wanted to play at centre back and was constantly caught out of position. On the evidence of today I wouldn't be too happy if we signed him.

He certainly wasn't anonymous. I thought he was our best player.

The problem with that position is that it's not a "flashy" role, and a player can often go unnoticed - especially if, like him, he is a tidy player who keeps things simple. He was regularly the one who was cutting out attacks, and then playing it off short to keep possession. I was very impressed.

If you bother to read Boyandy's article, you'll see that Rado left Tomsk because they had money problems, and went to Greece, probably on a short term deal. I guess he didn't fancy it.

Does this mean GB won't go for Garvan ?

The Algerian guy is a strange one, I thought, for a 21 year old defender, he looked pretty assured. Didn't get forward much though.

For me, he stood out so much. I loved his crunching tackle on Essien which left the tough Ghanaian reeling for a while.

I thought 45 minutes wasnt fair on Rad, He seemed a decent player but will have to certainly prove his potential in another game.

Will it be between him and Baiocco ?

Boyandy
18-07-2010, 09:27 AM
The way I see it we've lost Carle, Derry and Ertl in an already small squad. I guess Dorman could be seen as the replacement for Carle but that still leaves us with 2 DM's.

Obviously there may be other iron in the fire but we know about 4 potentials for those 2 spaces. Bridcutt looked decent, but maybe not tough enough physically. Age is against Baiocco but to be honest I'd be tempted to offer him a year with the option of a second dependent on appearances/performance. Different game speed I know, but he did play 40+ games in a promoted Serie B side last season.

Which leaves Radosavlijevic and Garvan.

I reckon GB will go for these 2 unless Garvan looks unlikely - which will see the Italian being offered a contract.

I agree. I thought he looked really good. He won't be contending with the quality of Essien and Mikel every week either. On that small piece of evidence I think he'd be an excellent signing.

Considering the hype that preceded his appearance on Saturday, there doesn't seem to be much happening on this front (unless it's all being done behind closed doors). Baiocco, Garvan and Colace have all been mentioned/interviewed since then.

Rado/Baiocco/Garvan

I think it will be any two from three I don't think Burley has the budget for all off them if he nedds to make more signings to strengthen the squad in other areas. Rado and Baiocco are not going to west contry but Anthony Ouasafane is, so he may be looking at him again as cover for left full back. So it could be two from Rado/Baiocco/Garvan, Ouasafane and another striker

I think if he can only have one he'll go for Rado as he can at least be tied down for a period longer than a year, whereas Baiocco is a risk beyond a 1yr deal.

Looked really good, IMO, this should be our priority list:

If we can only have one go for Rado, we need a defensive midfielder more than a central midfielder, and the money saved can go towards a striker. If two, Garvan as well.

CRYSTAL Palace boss George Burley has admitted that Italian midfielder Davide Baiocco is still a potential target.

Reports in the Italian press have claimed that the 35-year-old midfielder could be on the verge of penning a deal with the Eagles.

Burley, speaking after Tuesday night's 0-0 friendly draw with Bromley, did not dismiss the possibility of bringing the former Juventus man to SE25.

He said "It's an option. In the last few weeks we've looked at who is going to be best for us and he's a player who did impress us against Chelsea. I know he's 35 but he's a very clever player and I think the fans enjoyed him."

Burley also confirmed that Slovenian international Aleksander Radosavlejic - who played alongside Baiocco - is also still in his thoughts.

"Both boys did well and we didn't need to see them both again because their top quality players," said the Palace chief.

I think we may be going for the 2 Attacking Midfielder approach with 1 upfront. With the likes of Ambrose and Dorman around thats what it seems like to me.

The Macedonian used to play for Ipswich if i'm not mistaken? From what I was told by there fans he was a useful squad player but not much more. There opinion of him is slightly similar to our opinions of Carl Fletcher. Useful when he played, but not good enough to help us progress.

I know what you mean. But these two have been a class apart, I don't see why we haven't offered them both deals and why we are fannying around with others that aren't as good. I understand that we should look for the best players, but we should really try signing more players now and focus on getting a new striker in. They need to gel with the squad, too.

I personally thought Rado, was quiet. He had something about him where you can just tell hes a class player. But Davide Baiocco ran the palace show along with Barret vs Chelsea, but i too think we need to sign both up.

And you know we haven't offered them deals how exactly? I don't think that we'd be announcing the offers, only the signings.

Because of the way in which Burley has said we have seen the boys and they are a top class.

Sort of suggests, especially since we announced that Ambrose had been offered a new deal, that they haven't.

Having said the Ambrose said the offer had been on the table for 12 weeks, so maybe they have been, we only found out recently.

Ambrose was abit different - I think as much as anything that was about trying to shut one or two people up. I just think that if we offer player A a deal and let everybody know if he turns it down and we move onto player B he always knows he is second choice. Better to keep it all quite until the deal is done.

No i was not there, so can only go on others reports but i heard both were good. One of course is a lot youngers, and could Baiocco manager a 50 game season with 2 games a week at times?

The problem with preseason freindlies is that they usually show the passers up for their good passing ability but because the pace if often out of the game and almost certainly the passion and determination those who thrive on tackling and breaking up play do not show up as much.

Biaocco is also likely to be the one that costs more in terms of wages ghaving played at several Serie A clubs, Radosavlijevic i think the best club he has played at is Larissa in Greece isn't it? May come cheaper. Would of course be nice to get them both if it is possible.

Ambrose was abit different - I think as much as anything that was about trying to shut one or two people up. I just think that if we offer player A a deal and let everybody know if he turns it down and we move onto player B he always knows he is second choice. Better to keep it all quite until the deal is done.

Much like whoever Fulham approach now know that Martin Jol was always the first choice. I like the fact we have been keeping out contract talks and negotiations very quiet, only the Garvan one is public but then you would question whether that isn't Ipswich trying to get more people in to offer.

Or rather, what about their top players?

I understand these 'top players' belong to Baiocco and Rado, but what do you want to tell us about them?

I'm hearing good things from a Slovenian friend, that there is much excitement going around his circle of footballing friends back home, that Alexsander Radosavlijevic will be joining the Crystal Palace squad. Of course, I've heard this speculation stuff all before, so I'm not getting excited until it's a done deal. Anyway, it's a snippet of news to hang our hats on.

I disagree, a "few" experianced players yes, but have they ever played in England, could they survive a season playing 46+ games, I think not in Baiocco's case

So you will not have a player who has been an influental player (and captain) for a Serie A team to Palace because he is experienced? We don`t have the money to get a young talented player in with the same ability, so you mean we should loan a younger player instead? Or do you want us to play someone like N`Diaye as a DM? I guess you are joking? ;)

If you remember, George Burley said at his appointment, he had a large number of contacts in the game and I rather suspect he's contacted them and asked for available recommendations, which is why we have had so many trialists, including foreign ones.

If the truth is known, I think GB's desk is covered in applications with so many players being dumped onto the market by their hard up clubs.

Actually, just half a game.

But the answer is definitely yes. Whilst no-one doubted Derry and Ertl worked their socks off for us, this guy was a class apart from what we have previously seen in a defensive midfield role. You didn't have to watch him for more than 45 minutes to appreciate that.

He was by far the best player at Bromley the other night. Pity he did not play against Chelsea though as it would give us a better idea.
Still on the right contract I would go for him.

I am thinking this guy might be our new defensive midfielder. Now that Baiocco has confirmed he is staying with Brescia, Leicester has stated they are not selling Matt Oakley and with us not offering deals to Bridcutt and the Macedonian Gerrard I think this is the only defensive midfielder we are linked with.
Hopefully we sign him or another adequate defensive midfield soon to bolster our squad a little bit.

As stated on another thread, I do think any DCM we need (which we defo do need) should be an experienced player. With the youth we have in the side, I think the 1 position where you need experience is DCM. In the second half a old head would have slowed things down and protected our back 5 more.

As we've just been discussing the clowns on another thread Jose Semedo and/or Thierry Racon would probably be available cheaply.

Semedo would be a good signing. Defensive midfielder who is in the last year of his contract at Charlton. Probably within the club's budget to buy him.
