Yeah, something along the lines of Ďwe tried really hard to sign him. Did everything in our power to get him but he chose West Ham insteadí

As long as we keep Zaha we wonít have any problems staying up. However, if donít spend all the AWB money on a couple of attacking players it will be the same drudgery at Selhurst park.

Saw about an hour of the match live on a stream and have now seen the mess up for the 1st goal, so I think from what I did see, from the point of view that Palace have had one full week of training and very few of the squad (if any) have yet played more than 90 minutes so far, the performance has to be secondary to the very obvious fact that this was basically a training exercise!

I’ve travelled to loads of pre-season friendlies in the past 42 years or so, from Jersey to Norway, Sweden to Southern Germany.

That match yesterday was actually against far better opposition than Palace usually play, especially when you consider the short preparation time the squad have had so far and that probably, even from Roy Hodgson’s point of view, we are nowhere near knowing what our actual starting line-up will be by the time the PL starts - which players will have come in or moved on - so to base any opinion at all on what was evidenced yesterday is nothing more than speculation.

We played yesterday still without our recognised two best cb’s and we are unclear if AWB’s place is going to be taken by Joel or a new signing, a bit of a concern that the mistake was between the two probable regulars in VG and PVA, I could see from the live stream, words were exchanged between Vinnie and Pat, so hopefully they will be sorting their act out in time for the start of proper matches.

Have we got a creative enough midfielder above what Milo, Jimmy and Geoff provide? That’s another area I would like to see improved - of course, up front, we have the gap left by Batshauyi returning to Chelsea, if a deal is not done to get either him back or a different player that is as crafty inside the opposition 18 yard area, we will obviously struggle.

Given the strength of the opposition, the key objective yesterday was to put the players available through their paces and it was probably better that the mistake between PVA and VG took place yesterday and can be ironed out.

The other comedy moment for me was shortly before the YB’s second goal, when Palace actually had a promising attack on the go.

It ended when our intrepid hero Alex Sorloth fell in a crumpled heap inside the YB penalty area, was he pushed or did he suffer from Norwegian Elm Disease?

YB’s went unchallenged, the full 80 yards or so after Alex fell, the only touch from a Palace player was when Jimmy Mac deflected the ball into the net, game over!

Pre season doesnít mean a lot I agree. But you can still see certain things in the games, such as the beginning of a partnership upfront or creativity in midfield. Those things looked like the same issues as usual yesterday.
Our reliance on zaha to provide attacking flair is clear for all to see. When he plays with others on his wavelength we have played some excellent football. Notably the second half of 17/18 with RLC and PVA. There were glimpses last season that Meyer and zaha could link up very well indeed. Andros provides a rather more one dimensional Ďstraight linesí attacking threat on the right but remains a key part of the team with a great engine and ability to help out his full back.

I have no concerns about our centre halves, Sakho and Tomkins two of the best in the league, Dann and Kelly solid back up. We obviously need a new right back, someone with pace and dynamism to compliment wardís solidity. Ideally a left back too, PVA excellent going forward but his defensive positioning can be poor, although it should be noted he doesnít have Andros covering him. Interesting to see how Mitchell develops.

We have plenty in midfield to do the running/screening roles with luka plus kouyate/Meyer/jimmy Mac/the unconvincing schlupp/reidewald/dreher/Kirby - what we need is someone with a bit of flair/pace/skill/unpredictability either centrally or wide, preferably both.

If wilf stays he has increasingly been used as a striker in a front two which reduces his defensive duties , drifting out to the left a lot (look at last yearís heat map) and sort of covering two positions, striker and winger. As it stands he will start with benteke, one of three forwards with a lot to prove and that we are lumbered with. To my eyes Wickham has lost his pace since the awful injury and I think itís unlikely he will develop into the top PL striker he may have done. Sorloth doesnít look like the standard required. Benteke has had two very underwhelming seasons and despite looking lean itís a big leap of faith to suggest he can return to his form of 3,4,5,6 years ago.

Interesting to see who we bring in to plug these gaps. 3 players bare minimum. One seems likely to be Ayew. Decent enough squad cover and our best striker in terms of pressing high when required. One will be a right back - personally I would rely on ward this year and bring in a promising youngster as back up rather than blow half our budget on this position.

Do we then go for a target man first choice striker (mitrovic?) accepting the other 3 arenít up to the task, a nippier goal scorer (like Batshuayi or the Brentford lad) or someone with versatility (Bowen would be my pick, excellent link up play, can play wide or up front)

Or do we splash the budget in an attacking midfielder/winger? St Maxamine excites. Lookman worth a look.

Wish Roy would've given Dreher and some of the other youth players more minutes. They might've injected some more energy and hunger into our play.


The ZDS cup remains our greatest achievement.
And division 1 title

I've just come across the Young Boys at the Wankdorf v Red Star Belgrade in the 1st leg of the CL qualifying round.
Decent game 1:1 at HT.

Was quite a decent game YB vs Red Star tonight.

Find it a joke you can have an artificial pitch in the Champions League but not in the professional leagues in England mind you.
