Pretend we had a transfer kitty, being realistic who on the World Cup games so far would you like Palace to sign?

For me Gary Breen on a free would be a good signing indeed! As for foreign opposition I'm not sure what asking prices would be on certain nationality players and what the competition would be like

steve finnan is only 24/25 i thought.

BTW - breen didn't reject any offer frmo coventry, they simply couldn't afford to keep him on. Also Jancker is a pile of W@nk

My shopping list includes

Breen (free)
chung sun good - South Korea
Stewart - USA
Donovan - USA
Mboma - Cameroon

Its pretty hard to spot bargains at the World Cup these days. Even at the U21 Euro tournament.. that Italian young bloke Maccarone is going for 8m+. I still remember Palace reportedly lining up Kennet Andersson right before he made his name at the Cup and going off to Milan or somewhere.

Donovan is already owned by Bayer Leverkusen where Basturk already plays.. or are those daydream buys? Beasley is already out of our range probably.

I like Aliou Cisse - is at Montpellier. How about Ji-sung Park, the South Korean... he's only 21 and has had 31 caps.

Looking at the team lists Cameroon have quite a few young midfielders that might be of interest.. only Lauren, Foe and Olembe are out of our reach.. We're probably too late to get Olic, the newest Croat striker.. Russians have four 18-20's Izmailov, Kerzhakov, Pimenov and Sychov.. but I dont want to go down the Millwall way..

The Koreans are playing very well so I'd expect to see an influx of them into the European leagues after the World Cup. They seem very pacy with close control. Senegal were a tidy side as well and Liverpool have got the star man already.

Thats of no use or interest whatsoever as I haven't named anyone.

Gary Breen - yes please but as stated earlier unlikely due to the wages (but worth a go eh Jordan?)

Watch South Korean Lee Eul Yong, worked all match and even took one in the bread basket, the only trouble with these foreigners is they all flatter to decieve, buying any is a massive gamble, take Inamoto, played for Arsenal reserves against Blackburn and even got took off in that match! Or Hagi he only used to play well once every four years, having said that the culture of the South Koreans, Japanese etc probably means they would not just chase the money but consider it a matter of pride to play well, it could be the pace of our game and the physical aspect that finds them out.
P.S. will Clint get a game?

Costa Rica's Maurice Wrigth, if only cos having seen him play 5 times now he's never had a bad game. Solid defender/midfielder who's not afraid to go forward. Their striker Rolando Fonseca, who still plays in CR too, is also a much better player than he looked against China & possibly worth a look. I too can feel an influx of asian players into the Nationwide soon, though.

Realistically?

I'd like to have another look at Sanneh (US), just about the only thing in the shop that we can afford, methinks.

Now, if we did have any money and had got promoted we'd have to have a look at Jorgensen / Romehdahl (Denmark) & Steven Reid, (unfortunately tainted by playing for the animals).

Finnan has already expressed an interest in coaching when his career finishes - he has started an FA coaching programme, with the intention of reaching a full UEFA 'A' classification before his career ends. Whilst he will not come to Palace yet (he will stil fancy his chances in the next World Cup) it is the sort of innovative thinking SJ needs to display to attract good players to the club at reduced wages

Lee B
06-06-2002, 02:23 PM
Sorry Johan, but when it comes to most players the choice between ManUre, the Arse or the mighty Palace (even with a job for life) is no choice at all.

The wonderful Magic Matt excluded I can't think of a player who when faced with a choice between big club and small club hasn't chosen the former.

I'd go along with signing Inamoto on a year's loan, if Mr Wenger has no use for him. The creative midfielder we all dream of. And just think of the new streams of revenue opening up for Mr Jordan! Perhaps Mr Jordan would appear in a bright red kimono instead of that dazzling suit he favours?

Also, if we want a better than Beckham dead ball specialist, look no further than Paraguay's right back Francisco "Cheeky" Arce!

LOL CE - you criticize us for picking out USA players and then advise us to sign Alvaro Recoba!! Thats hilarious. Amazingly talented and possibly paid more a week than the entire CPFC squad. Not to mention he probably has no clue what Division One is and would refuse to play Grimsby away.

Pretty Hair Cisse is part of possibly the best defense in Africa. He's off the market now anyway - Birmingham have apparently signed him for 4 million.

One totally freaky game? Shows how much you know. USA have beaten Nigeria, Argentina, Germany twice, Sweden in recent years. Reyna hasnt done anything yet? He was captain of his German team, then bossed the midfield for a small Scottish team up north.. you might have heard of them.. Rangers? In Europe John O'Brien is Ajax's lynchpin and since when do we have to worry about European competition? "Old tat" ? Beasley and Donovan are 20. We should be so lucky as to get them.

You may have been correct a few years ago, but it is slowly changing.
There plenty of young players come up from the under 17, 18, & 20 teams. There were 4 other players under 20 in some of the pre World Cup games. I understand that there are 5 players under 20 who are playing in Europe.

quick recap:

Of the Americans, most players would probably add to our squad. However most are most probably out of our reach. I would have thought that the chances of us signing either Beasley or Donovan are as good as the chances of us signing players like Joe Cole or David Dunn. Other players like Sanneh and McBride are more realistic. Sanneh was a good call.

Recoba, obviously, no chance.

Reid wouldn't move to Palace either.

As for Inamoto, whilst I agree that he might be a great player on a season long loan (though how would he perform Grimsby away, being clouted by 6 foot bruisers? sorry to use the old stereotype), what are our chances of getting him given the impact that he has had?

Another thing about Inamoto- in the Sunday Times today I read that Arsene Wenger had released him last week, is this true? It would seem a very foolish move for Wenger to make given that he paid 4m for his services less than one year ago (OK, they may have made double that through shirt sales) and given that if he were to make an impact at the World Cup, which he has done, he would be able to cash in on him.

Neckinger Eagle
10-06-2002, 03:20 AM
Didn't one of the commentators say that Inamoto wanted to return to Arsenal to fight for his place?

Seriously, though, much as it would be nice to have him at Palace, I agree I doubt he would fancy it. We couldn't afford his wages, either.

One of the few games he played for Arsenal was against Grimsby in the League Cup. Apparently he had a stinker!

One can always dream!

We're probably better off getting young talent stagnating at the big clubs, frozen out by the big names.. the policy arussell and others here have been advocating for years.. Arsenal & Liverpool have a good batch that need first team football. Muzzy Izzet was one such castoff. Morrison from Spurs.. Andy Cole from Arsenal..

I dont believe the Inamoto story. It seems more likely that some jounalist has his head up his arse, than Wenger releases a 4m player just before he appears in the WC. Even before the WC i'm sure there were several Euopean clubs that would have been happy to gamble on Inamoto for a couple of mil.

The bald headed central midfield player who scored for Mexico looked class to me. I think however that in our present position we would stand more chance of getting players from teams that didn't make the finals. If a blank cheque is in the offing though, a lot of the Nigerian, Cameroon and Senegal players would be worth investigating.

So that's 4 Non EU players requiring work permits? Unless some of those Nigerian/Senegalese have French nationality.

Is the unlimited Non EU player rule only applicable to the Premiership or would it apply to Nationwide leagues aswell?

Symon10
16-06-2002, 03:38 PM
sorry to here about lauren dan.


i wasn't suggesting we bought all of them or in fact any of them. the 4 players you suggest as non eu are just players that have caught my eye for whetever reason (camara - initially his great tackle which lead to an outstanding senegal counter attack in one of the group matches for example). both camara and diatta play in france, as does yobo. those three players may not be non-eu. as you suggest about the two senegal players. Breen is a slightly different suggestion as he is available to get and bar wages should be a realistic consideration.

I started to think about the fact there was (is?) restrictions on non-eu players and initially i thought:

****************
personally i think the rule for ENGLISH league football should have restrictions on the number of non english players, not non-EU. there are massive positives from foreign players playing for english clubs in that other players can learn from these players and therefore be better players. it also attracts fans and money to the sport. however the detremental effect is clear to see in our national side. the fact trevor sinclair is the best we can find to play on the left wing. every top club in england uses a foreign player on the left wing.
***************

but then i started thinking about:

***************
the arguement that if you have foreign players that are that good that the up and coming english players have to become even better to get a place in the side. which is a really good thing.
***************

so i guess that's a kind of arguement that's never going to end and i don't really know what to conclude on it so i guess however it is currently is fine.

Yeh, don't worry about it. I'm not. What's done is done.

Imagine how much the prices will skyrocket after this tournament, on Sky Sports News on friday it said that Spurs had bid 3.6m for Aghahowa but Shakhter rejected. Not surprising really.

You have to make sure you get decent players who can adapt to a new lifestyle and not get all moody and not want to play. Or come in with a newly found big reputation and think themselves worthy of special treatment and take the piss out of the club. Like El Hadji Diouf and his witchdoctor bollox when he was with Lens.
