Reading Football Club boss keen on Palace defender
13:31 December, 8, 2004
Steve Coppell is looking to bring Danny Butterfield to Reading Football Club

The defender has made only two starts for Crystal Palace so far this season, both in the Carling Cup and Reading were keen to seal a loan switch for the former Grimsby man.

Palace have turned down a temporary switch but are looking to trim their squad after heavy recruitment in the summer and may consider a permanent switch for Butterfield.

Coppell has been given the go-ahead to sign a new defender with the Reading back line having looked less secure since Adie Williams’ move to Coventry.




I think this would be a trim too far. Hasn't played much but Important cover for both FB and midfield IMO

Why the hell did we turn down a temporary move while Danny could be a decent Premiership player once he has got some games back under his belt?

I think that is a good point. Dowie has brought in 2 right backs since he has been here (Marlene and Leggy) and played Leggy when Boyce was moved to centre back.

However, there is nothing in the article that makes me think that this is anything other than pure speculation.

Maybe Butterfield hasn't fully recovered from his injury. Those who have seen him in the reserves say he's not quite the same player. Maybe a loan would be good, to get him match sharp again.

Butts can't be properly 'fit' yet as ID is not having him on the bench even. A loan spell would give him the chance to regain match sharpness.

08-12-2004, 02:25 PM
He's got his work cut out with both Boyce and Leigertwood ahead of him now, but I still wouldn't sell him. Maybe a month on loan would help him get fully fit though?

st albans
08-12-2004, 02:30 PM
i could see it happen as a loan move, as that would benefit both parties, but i think ID knows he's part of his plans, albeit only as back up. couldn't see him leaving permanently, unless we have a suprise signing in that position in Jan.....

Unfortunatly Butts isn't the best right back at the club anymore, at least Dowie doesn't seem to think so.
With Emm & Mikele ahead of him maybe it's time Danny moved on. He will get regular football and the chance to prove Dowie wrong.

I can't believe some people are sayin get rid off him. He has been one of the top 3 most consistent performers over the past two seasons and would gutted if he was shipped out! He just needs to get fit and then I'm sure he would be the best option at RB once ID has figured out our strongest CB partnership.

Boyce = Solid defender
Butts = man with more vision and quality longs balls and crosses.

IMO he still is but has to prove it to displace Boyce who has done well.
Like to see him back in the first team certainly dont think he should be loaned to anyone. Dont believe it anyway.

And for those of you saying that he's 3rd choice right back, it was only because of an injury in the penultimate match of preseason that he didn't start the season as 1st choice.

He was given the number two shirt, vice captaincy, and started all of our preseason games untill we played Samp.

This is a typical example of the tabloids using flawed logoc to come up with an even more flawed conclusion.

This has all arisen from the misinterpretation of SJ's comments, when he said in the local paper that it's good housekeeping to get rid of the fringe players from the squad. This was interpreted by the tabloids as SJ saying that we desperately had to slash the squad, in order to bring in new faces.

This is another example of the shoddy journalism in the Mirror.

There isn't a hope in hell that ID would sell Butts, end of story.

No way should this happen. I also don't agree that Leigertwood is rated as our second best right back. He comes on for Boyce as sub, but that is because he is on the bench to cover both positions. I can not see him starting at RB ahead of a fit Danny Butts.

Benzhiyi
08-12-2004, 03:55 PM

Dowie sees Boyce as his first choice right back, and Leigertwood is a decent back up. Thus if the right offer came in for Butts, who has had a poor season in the reserves and is yet to make the bench for a league game, he'd probably be allowed to leave.

I think that on his day, Butts is a better all round full back than Boyce or Leggy - but only Dowie's and Symons' opinions matter on this one. :(

Really? I haven't heard of any others.

It is utterly incomprehensible that we would sell our most versatile and most consistent performer from last season. Butts signed a new 4 year contract in the summer and is held in high regard by ID.

This is just an example of shit stirring by the anti Palace Mirror.

Spender
08-12-2004, 04:21 PM
Butts has not got the physical presence, athleticism or pace of Boyce both of which are big factors for a quality Prem defender.

Butts was great for us in Div One but IMHO would be a bench player at best in the Prem.

arussell
08-12-2004, 04:22 PM
I gather that Coppell's move was to get him on loan only, but was flatly turned down by Palace.

I am wondering whether there's some sort of injury problem with Danny, as he's only impressed in a couple of reserve matches.

Personally I think it's way too early to be considering moving him on though.

I don't agree, Butts is a fundamentally better player than Boyce. fair play to Emmerson as he has played brilliantly and has siezed his chance with both hands, but had Butts not been injured in pre season, he was always going to be the number one choice.

you mean he did last year, in a lower league. I saw Luton play a few times last year and if you are judging Butterfield and Boyce on their performances last year then Boycie is the clear winner.

'Thats not a fair comparison because they played in different leagues' i hear you cry. Then don't compare Dannys performances in Div 1 to Boyce's in the prem.

Tommy Pickle
08-12-2004, 04:50 PM
IMO the best right back at the club is Boyce. In Mikele we have more than adequate cover. If we get a decent sum for Danny it wouldn't be the end of the world. Somehow i cant see it happening tho. As already mentioned, Danny recently signed a lengthy contract, played all games until his injury, and was given the number 2. ID must rate him.

Falco
08-12-2004, 04:55 PM
I would like to at least try him in centre midfield. Plus he provides an option as cover for Routledge. I cannot see any reason to think he would not take well to the premier league. We won't know until he is given a chance.

Jay_Palace
08-12-2004, 04:56 PM

personally i think is dowie sees him as 3rd choice we might as well sell.

08-12-2004, 05:08 PM
Defensively Boyce is the better player but Butts gives much more in attacking options.Some one mentioned Butts in the play off final but in truth you need to look at the Coventry game at the end of last season when his error cost a bad goal.

In my view we ought to keep him at Palace and let him work for a place in the team.

Would be an absolutely mental transfer. Yes, Boyce has done well and Liegertwood is a great prospect - but his natural position is centre back, and we of course need two out-and-out right backs. We're not going to get a better one than Danny easily if we realise that after the fact. Sort it out Palace.

It seems that Butts, Derry and AJ are a bit like the three amigos, and seem to be seen a lot out and about Bromley and Beckenham together.

It seems a bit worrying that if Butts were to go, and to be followed by Derry at some time soon, that would leave AJ without his buddies.

Anyone think this could affect his well-being and contentment with being at Palace, and even affect his form.

I agree with most people on this board.

It would be a huge mistake to let him go permanently, because when fit, to me he is still the best right back at the club.

Boyce is more like a versatile defender who could play at RB or CB, but would be best in the centre.

Leggy is a great talent, but to me (in his early stage of his career) is frightenly inconsistant. Brilliant one day, prone to mistakes the next.(Arsenal at home, then Man U away spring to mind).

I prefer Danny B's consistency, and works well with Wayne. He played quite well at old trafford to me even though he was clearly unfit.

I too think this is just bad journalism, and the competition for the right back spot will become fierce when Danny gets his fitness back.

That being the case, a loan spell for a month might not be a bad idea.

08-12-2004, 09:51 PM

I really can't believe this can be true. As has been said, Danny has been immense since he joined and for me he really pushed AJ for player of the season last year.
I vaguely recall a quote from Dowie towards the end of last season saying that Danny was probably the best all round player at the club and a true professional. I still think this is the case and would be very downhearted if he were to leave.
Perhaps with the current form of Boyce, Danny could be used in midfield which would give Dowie an option to rest one of the current three midfield starters.
I'd prefer we didn't loan him out as all the players we loan out seem to leave the club shortly after.

BW_Palace
09-12-2004, 08:27 AM
Can't see why Danny would leave. Boyce is immense, but Danny is important cover for him and possibly midfield (where his long range distribution would be very useful, as at the moment we're stringing nothing together).

Your opinion is off-beam then. Surely Boyce is one for the future, if anyone should be shipped out of these three it would be Leigertwood.

liegertwood is 22, boyce is 25

How can anyone say whether Butts would be any good in the Prem? It is totally ridiculous, as we have no idea, just as we don't with Powell. Who'd have thought Boyce would be so good, esp after the first few games when he was pretty poor (and nearly everyone on here, me included, was calling for Butts to get fit).
Based on games in Div1, Butterfield would have been one of the few you'd have backed to make it. Since plenty of others have shown it can be done, he must be given a chance.

Spot on sydnsteve. Call me sentimental but I'd love to see Butters playing in the Premiership. The guy had been almost ever-present since his free transfer from Grimsby.

This thread can end.

Iain Dowie said last night that there is NO WAY Butterfield will be leaving Palace and he WILL be playing over xmas.

of course coppell wants to bring in butts- who the hell wouldn't!?! boyce has done very well, but has not a patch on butts for quality and technique.

it's infuriating to see some of the same names posting in this thread about the need to trim the squad of fat, get in better quality players, and with the other hand dismiss butts and condone him moving out of the club. he was one of the only players i would have rated as being good enough for the premiership last season.

this is absoulute madness :bash:
