Good news. Danny can play left back, right back, holding mid, right mid. Even with Clyne given more of a chance he will play make 35+ appearances.

Shipp Ahoy!

Great player for us, certainly deserves a new contract.

Don't think we could get a better back up for Clyne this year, especially as he is so versatile and offers a lot anyway :)

Been here for 8 years, I'd love to see him offered a new 2 year deal, to take him up to his testimonial.

Apart from the legendary hattrick, he played real well when filling in at centre back & in midfield over the years, a true club man, long may he remain.

My favourite player! Good news, hope he makes it to a testimonial too, has stuck around for the crazy journey of the past few years despite at times being out of favour. Top man.

Plus he helped to relegate Charlton.

Plus he won me £40 on a first player to score bet once.

He probably could have won you a house on a first second choice right back to score a 6 minute perfect hat-trick against Premier League opposition bet

Anyone think we should try Buts @ RB with Clyne @ right midfield? They might get a good partnership going down that right.

I actually think right back is one of his weaker positions. Too often butts has been the weak link that oppositon attackers have exploited. I'm pleased he's staying as he's versatile and a decent player to have in the squad, but i'd rather see him in a midfield or wing back role. Don't think defending is his strong point.

Kolinks makes an interesting point.

Butterfield sitting and covering in front a back 4 could work and would allow our fullbacks to bomb on. I think he would be less wasteful of possession than Derry if not as frightening and combative.

Versatile, gives his all for Palace, great character to have around. Clyne can cover either FB position (Hills injury) so essential to keep both of them. Still need one other to cover at the full back and centre half positions (Lawrence hopefully is gone as he is too old now) and Derry/Hill sound as if they are off.

McCarthy for captain

Why not leave the team selection and tactics to George Burley. He will decide who stays and who goes, not us and he will do it with the best interest of the club in mind.

If Butts (or any other out-of-contract player) is re-signed, it will be for a very good footballing reason, rather than being based on sentiment and nostalgia.

Because this is a forum and they tend to thrive by having a mixture of contributors and opinions?

There's also a transfer forum but no-one's suggesting that the powers that be are using that instead of employing scouts.

You are an utter muppet. Can you really not tell the difference between an an internet forum and real life.

I might have a substantial ego but not even I would beleive remotely - even for a millisecond - that George Burley before making a decision about his team line up some stage in August will refer back to this thread and go: 'mmh, I was going to go with x system of play and y playing in midfield but now I have read adrenalin john's post in which he agrees with Kolinkins I simply have to change tatics formation and personel to ensure Danny B plays holding midfielder.'

Are you going to go round ever pub pre-match and interrupt every conversation regarding signings line ups and players, will you apply for a phone tap order in case Palace fans discuss such contentious issues by phone.

This is a discussion thread, a place where we can discuss issues in this case about the re-signing or not of Danny B and what use he will be to the team.

Do you never discuss politics and always say let the government decide?

In conclusion, perhaps as someone who beleives expressing an opinion on a internet discussion forum is wrong, you should leave the BBS and practise harder on remaining mute. I am sure those close to you would appreciate hearing less.....

Sheffield United boss Kevin Blackwell is ready to snap up right-back Danny Butterfield in his second swoop on Crystal Palace.

Butterfield is a free agent after failing to agree terms with the new regime at Selhurst Park and has been offered a lucrative deal by the Blades.

Blackwell has already landed Austrian Johnny Ertl from Palace and hopes that Butterfield, 30, will agree terms and pass a medical in talks before the weekend.

24-06-2010, 12:36 PM
If wages are an issue, then he goes with our blessing, as he has been such a great servant to the club.

If he didn't have that injury in 2004, he'd would have been even better. Best right back in the league in a playoff season without a doubt.

If he wants to stay on reduced wages, we would be stupid to let him go, however if he wants a last big pay day, from clubs likely to go to administration sometime in the future, when they don't get to the promised land, then good luck to him.

Been released.

http://www.sportcroydon.co.uk/footballnews/Exclusive-Butterfield-Lawrence-allowed-leave-Crystal-Palace/article-2363947-detail/article.html

ALACE stalwarts Danny Butterfield and Matt Lawrence have both been released by Crystal Palace.

The experienced duo's contracts officially expire tomorrow and manager George Burley has confirmed to the Advertiser that the pair will not be returning when the rest of the squad start pre-season.

Burley said: "I spoke with the boy Butterfield but he had already had an offer from another club and I felt we couldn't match that.

"Matt Lawrence has also been allowed to leave. Neither will be coming into training tomorrow."

Striker Stern John's contract also ends tomorrow, but as yet he hasn't been spoken to by the manager.

"I tried to get hold of Stern but he is currently out of the country," added Burley.

Young trio Calvin Andrew, Kieron Cadogan and Kieran Djilali have been offered new deals and are expected to put pen to paper in the next few days.

Sad to see Butters 'linked' with Lawrence on this - always a fav but has been prone to injury and live Danny granville has never been as good as his best because of injury. Best hatrick ever seen, great laugh amongst the players but this contract will be a crucial one for Butters, he leaves with a lot of 'man luv' and will be warmly received - please not QPR!!!!

A legend but I think I agree with Burley.

Must have been so hard for Dougie to be part of the management team who decides to keep him or not considering they are most likely very good mates (I have no idea if they are or not but I expect they probably are). But I suppose thats all part of the game.

I wouldn't say he looked silly at all. They way his message is worded it sounds like it came from Butterfield, i.e. Butterfield wanted to stay, but Burley does not/can not meet the same demands as the other offers.

A great servant to the club, and personally giving me one of my greatest moments at Selhurst with that 6 minutes. :lux: :lux: :lux:

Sounds to me that Burley wanted to keep Danny B, but was not prepared to match a crazy offer from elsewhere. Fair enough on all parts.

It sounds like Lawrence was simply unwanted, hopefully he will get a player coaching role at league one/two level

A new broom sweeps clean.

One way or another it looks as though we're going to have a very different team at the start of next season.

Given that we are all anticipating a significant change in playing style, I can't help thinking that this is a good thing.

And I like the fact that the last thing this team did before being broken up was to fight and fight to keep this club up at the end of last season.

I feel a little sad though, that we've already lost/are set to lose about half of that team.

Still; if we can replace tired legs with new, younger and better players, I'm all for it. I just hope the spirit around the club is still as good as before.

wouldn't go that far. Legend is used far too frequently.
A good player, & many happy memories off Danny B's time at SE25, most notably the goal against Sunderland in the play-offs in 2004'.
All the best for the rest off your career, you'll no doubt raise a smile with your "new teamates" on a training ground very soon.

Bit of a shame to see two of the heroes of that final game against Sheff Wednesday go - Danny will always be fondly remembered, particularly for his great displays in the 2003/04 season - plenty of great memories and of course, that hat-trick versus Wolves in the Cup is a once in a lifetime moment that will always live in Palace folklore.

I hope both Danny and Matt settle in somewhere new - and wish them both good luck.

I would have liked Danny B to stay and get a testimonial, however if we offered him 4k a week (and I hope we didn't offer him more) and he has been offered 7+ elsewhere then good luck to him.

Have loads of good memories, he was superb in the promotion winning season and what a hat trick this year in the Cup.

A good servant who even helped relegate Charlton, I hope he gets a rousing reception if he ever returns to Selhurst Park

cranesparkeagle

With Derry going, I imagined that Danny would end up leaving too, which is a real shame and I'm gutted.

After AJ, he is one of my favourite Palace players in recent years. A wonderfully nice chap too.

I remember seeing him in the cab office outside the ground after the Cardiff game with Derry and it was one of my favourite Palace moments outside of a game! Excellent celebration.

If he really is gone then I wish him all the best for the future (apart from against us).

I've got a bit of the Aki's about this one. One of my favourite players, but equally one I don't want to have bad memories of. Ever present until injury, a 6 minute perfect hat trick and a good servant will be how I remember Butterfield. Happy with that.

My thoughts exactly.
We have lost 9 players from last years championship team and at least six who played in the last game.
We are three weeks from the start of the season and signed three players.
One of which is known to be championship standard, one who has played most of his career in the fourth division and one from Scotland that we will have to wait and see if he can play at this level. His highly rated team mate Steve Thompson had two goes in England and never really hit it off down here.

mattsaintsfan
17-07-2010, 11:27 AM
A quick note to Palace fans going to see Fonté and Butterfield in friendlies: it is very likely that playing Sutton Utd it will be a youth team with those two not even in the stadium. If it says 'Saints XI' then it's probably the youth team.

Good luck next season!

Banged in an incredible hat-trick for us. We are struggling to attract a winger/striker and with McCormack and Baxter looking less and less likely it looks like we're switching our attention to cheaper defenders (see McGivern thread).

We have a good record of getting defenders 'over the line' (see Ramage, Ward, Martin for this season's evidence), and can't afford genuine attackers. Might this be a good option? Any other defenders out there who can play as an auxillary attacker?

EDIT: Plus he can play right midfield. I almost forgot that! So he's flexible like all modern footballers should be according to the BBS. Fits the bill surely?

Probably not, I'm the equivalent of an attacking target for Crystal Palace: slippery to get hold of.

I can't believe there's not more support for this idea. Normally the BBS is keen to get back an ex-Palace player. Danny Butterfield was weak defensively, but he is great going forward - just what we need.

Let's not forget he was part of the Southampton squad that went up last season, and he would only come here as a backup.

Interesting, I suppose it wouldn't even really be a story if he hadn't played for us before. Would be just another name that has been mentioned and didn't stand out, like the other players they are looking at.

Are we looking at short term loan here while Ward and Blake are out? If so I'm in favour of getting a few more bodies in, we're weak in that department atm. Its good that he knows the club well so less settling in time. Would depend on the fee if we should sign him, and tough decision to give him a decent length contract

If he doesn't add to the side be goes back, while we are losing Ward and Blake (the latter I don't think would be as good as Butterfield)

If there was someone from the youth setup ready to step up I would think he would have played instead of Parr out of position, it would have already happened.

Even if he has lost his pace?

What if his recruitment stifles the development of a youth player and/or subsequently means we miss out on another signing for budgetary reasons?

We don't have any young RBs who are ready to make the step up yet. Akuruka is the only one anywhere near old enough, but I don't think he will be good enough. So no need to worry about the first bit.

Wynter is travelling with the first team. Doesn't he play right-back?

Yes & no. It's not his natural position. Also, I didn't really think of him because again, I just can't see him making it a few years on from his debut (albeit because we were in the shit financially, even then) & from when I've seen him he hasn't seemed comfortable enough in any position because he keeps chopping & changing. Will be more than happy to be proven wrong, but he's never pulled up any trees.

I have always been a big fan of Danny Butterfield and was very disappointed when he left. But hey, we now have to move on and bring in a player who can improve us as i am unsure Ward is our RB answer, and can establish and push for a permanent position in the team. Who would i like to see come in, either Adam Smith or Neal Eardley.

Why don't you think Ward is the answer at RB? Personally think he's showing the class that made him wanted by the majority of championship clubs & held in high regard at Pompey. One or two poor games, but he was starting to get into his stride of late, imo.

It's a shame as he was touted as an up and coming talent when playin CM constantly. But being switched between there, CB and now RB has really hampered his progress. Similar to Inniss I think? Stand out at CB but seems to have stalled by constant position changes?

I might be misunderstanding your point about Inniss but he's not been changed position a lot, he's always been a CB (well, at least since I've been watching him.) If you mean that Inniss was standing out but is now stalling then you'd be right, but that's not because of positional changes.

Probably a bit harsh of me to write off Wynter right now, & I really don't mean to come across as slagging off an academy player, hopefully I'm not. Positional changes can really hamper a player's development, as one BBSer is finding out atm.

I may be wrong but I thought I'd seen a few times that he was being swapped between CB and DMC?

I don't understand the joke, sorry!

Re: Inniss, Gazza2 is your man to confirm or deny that, but I don't recall him being in Defensive Midfield, would be a strange place to play him tbh. Connor Dymond usually plays defensive midfield now, he was previously a CB/RB. Maybe you're thinking of him?

For the record, I'd be happy with Butterfield as short term cover for Ward. Not the end of the world if we go for someone else though.

Richard Harris was a Striker in our youth team around 1999. Peter Nicholas thought because he ws big and strong he could play Centre Back. He wasn't very good in either position. He played CB in our 7-1 away defeat to Huddersfield in the 99/00 season.

All he was really any good at was launching the ball about 70 yards from throw ins.

I'd love to see Danny back if only on a short term deal.

He was one of the best crossers of the ball i've seen in a long time, Murray could have a field day with that sort of service.
Oh yeah of course, cos Bolasie is crap at crossing. Loved him when he was here but bring in Parsons and switch parr, he can handle it. Parsons is pretty quick and tough as old boots.

Spot on hull eagle... as usual :p Butts would be good for the dressing room too as well as being a veteran of the 2004 promotion winning team. His crossess would be taylor made for Murray, as they were for Lambert last season. He would provide a lot of savvy as well.... however I'm still trying to forget his Hillsborough 'air kick' as well :eek:

2 assists from his 10 appearances last season. He is 33 now and not getting better, would be a desperate move so the question is..... are we desperate?

The reason i suggested Ward is not our answer "Woosie" is i see him more of a utility player, than a specialist RB which i think we need to give us a better balance and pace on the right side to interlink with our winger. I might we wrong, but i feel the Two players i suggested would give us a better option if we were to get promoted.

Although we big up, and (probably/possibly) rightly so, our academy, a lot of them don't seem to make that final (big) step up to first-team football. I'd love to see Parsons given a go rather than bringing back a 33 year-old former hero.
As for Innis, I thought he was going to be our new Billy Gilbert/Peter Nicholas. I hope he still will be.
Isn't Dumbaya still available?

Much as I love Butterfield I'd be very sceptical if he came back. I'd rather remember him for being a hero than a shadow of his former self. And if the crowd started getting on his back I'd probably want to cry.

What if Holloway sees him as the best option?

Then, I'm afraid, I would question our scouting network.

I'm 100% supportive of IH, but signing Butts would be a backwards step even if it was short-term.

Interesting to read Woosie's thoughts re youngsters. I'd still rather see if Wynter or Arkuruka can play at this level than see if Butts still has it - which, as I mentioned earlier, my Southampton ST holder friend says he doesn't.

I think he'd be fairly ideal. Very able backup player who has a lot of affection for the club and played a part in the team who were runners up in this division last season. Do we actually have anybody in our squad who's been promoted from this division before? Having a few players with a bit of extra nous would be good to have around the place. Wouldn't cost much either I wouldn't imagine. Decent going forward as well as at the back. He wouldn't be playing too much, just filling in here and there and adding a bit of experience to the side.

Agree with all of this, especially the bit in bold. A loan deal until the end of the season with a view to a player-coach deal next season maybe? (depending on how long he has left on his contract). Surely cant play any worse than Blake did against Blackpool?

Erm 2 assists in 10 from a right back and that is desperate? (a year older or not)

Ward has 1 assist in 18, Parr has 4 in 22 (so 2 in 11).

Get a grip Gonzo. It's hardly a bad record!

There is one player who plays at right back who I think Woosie rates quite highly, don't think him joining has been officially announced yet though I do think he has signed a contract from somebody I know that knows him.

Only 17 (18 in a couple of weeks though) but another option.

I have a grip thanks. The argument was put that he would be a good option because of his crosses based on what he did last season for Lambert.

I was merely proving that this was not a strong reason to sign him as he played just 10 times getting only 2 assists.

His defensive frailties and diminishing pace have already been discussed. It would IMO be a backward step and a desperate signing.

Danny Butterfield is one of the best right backs we have had in recent history. He was superb at Saints last season and would be a great signing for us.

He has got one of the best crosses I have ever seen from a Palace player, can you imaging Danny whipping in the balls for Murray
