Andy Johnson - not happening

Apparently Swindon want AJ on loan. If he didn't have such serious injuries I'd have him back in a flash

To me AJ is kind of like the cherished memory of a TV show or computer game that you used to love as a kid. Something which gives you a warm fuzzy glow on the inside when you think back, but would most likely be really disappointing if revisited.

I love him and he is a Palace legend to me, but best left to fond memories. I'd hate it if he came back, had a goal drought and got targeted by the boo boys.

Yeah I'd definitely drop the leagues top goal scorer for AJ who is our 3rd striker then? Because I don't see Wilbraham doing much in the team at the moment

AJ's career has been ruined by injury, in a way there are some parellels with Michael Owen.

If he is available on loan, I find it hard to believe that championship clubs wouldn't be interested. In fact, I could see a Brighton/Forest going in for him just to give them that additional fire power. And personally, the thought of going up against a forward of AJ's proven quality in this league (albeit some time ago now) in a play off game would petrify the hell out of me.

If QPR are happy to pay the wages, what the hell is there to lose? At the end of the day, we could do with another out and out forward to support Murray and KP (Wilbraham isn't the answer).

He may not have the pace that he once had, but at this level, he'd get chances, and I'd bet money on him putting them away ahead of most players in our squad (bar the obvious two, Murray and KP).

I'd certainly sacrifice the loan deal of Nimely to make room for him...

It's not quite as simple as 'AJ or Wilbraham' given that we'd have to find wages for Johnson in addition to the latter as well as Murray and Phillips.

And those wages wouldn't be insignificant either.

Great Football Manager signing, but probably not viable for us financially, particularly with questions surrounding his fitness.

Johnson has just come off yet another long term injury. If he came to Palace he would be there to improve and maintain his fitness. Is that what we really need for a run in ?

I think we have done the returning player/manager to death at Palace and mostly it has not worked out,lets have great memory's of AJ at his best not when he is on his way out.

There is a reason for him looking to League One as opposed to The Championship

But, yes. It would be nice to see him at Selhurst again.

40k a week for a third choice striker. Nice one

be handy to come of the bench in a play off final wearing his magic hat and nicking a winner against the weeds, 25 thousand Palace fans errupting into his song for one last time

The way people just name transfer targets without thinking of the cost never ceases to amaze me.

We have Murray, Kev, Dobbie and Wilf who can all play up front, who are currently involved in our first team, then AW on the bench.

But still, let's start stockpiling strikers for the sake of it.

I've never said let's get him in, I said if he didn't have his injuries (which he does) then I would. Wilf isn't a goal scorer and probably never will be a prolific goal scorer anyway and Dobbie is more of the link up man. The 1 goal for Wilbraham this season don't say much, even though he hasn't he many chances.

Even if AJ were to sign tomorrow, it would take him at least a month or so of competitive football to get him anywhere near match fit - we can't be gambling around this stage of the season.

Cannot Carter have an opinion ?

I would have Fiona Richmond back like a shot except at 68 her fanny is probaby like a dog chew.

For the old gits out there
