Isn't that just assuming we don't spend the money on replacements and squad strengthening?

Those two wipe out the loss and fund a couple of years in the championship before we would have to slash

Mistakes have been made in letting Benteke and Luka get to 1 year left on contract, should extend 2 years out or sell although Luka has probably made up for it with penalties and leadership. Hopefully lessons learned there

And you'll be one of the 's who will bash SP if we don't spend much in the summer. Thankfully he's realised along time ago he can't win with some people.

This could be the "defining moment" for SP. He has to deal with two major issues: the possible departures of Zaha and AWB AND the new owners/board members that will replace our "American Friends" (he may even have to find these new owners himself). We can only wish him the very best of luck.

The buck ultimately stops with Parish but Dougie has to be accountable for our ******* awful transfer policy. Failing to spot the potential of van dyke & signing shit like Sørloth for £10 mil hasn’t helped.

On the other hand, Guaita and Meyer must be worth 40 million between them, and they came in on free transfers last summer.

It’s not necessarily the value of the players so much as the wage bill that SP has been battling of late. Trying to work out how much that has reduced recently and without Speroni, Puncheon, Sako, Ayew, Batshuayi, that’s gotta be close to 300k per week saving but just as we take a breath Luka and Andros are looking for more and we will have to think about strengthening the squad.

I think we will use a couple of the youngsters to bolster squad numbers but we really do have to address the striker issue and really that’s going to have to be with a cheap option. We’d have more alternatives if SP could get Reidewald moved on and I’m in 2 minds about Benteke but probably resigned to him being a major drain on wages and going on a free next year . I’d still like to see SP having a bit of ambition with Che Adams and maybe Maupay

I am not sure what I am supposed to be moaning about at the moment. Is it:

a) Parish and Freedman are shit at spotting talent and inept in the transfer market, or
b) Roy has underachieved in 2018/2019 given he had the best squad Palace has ever had.

Maybe it’s more about a statement of intent going forward. Great if we keep wilf and AWB this year but there needs to be a strategy to move us forward and I’m not sure that’s obvious at the moment. Let’s face it we “lucked” into Batshuayi rather than that being a planned and strategic choice

If you mean when Van Dyke was at Celtic, that was before D.F. time, it was during Warnock's time.
If you mean then he went to Liverpool, we didn't have 75Million to spend

I’ve not always been the biggest supporter of SP but he has brought the longest sustained stay in the Premier League or its predecessor. He has kept the players he wanted to and added some very talented new ones. I fear we’ll end up sounding like Fulham and Charlton supporters and come complacent before the fall.
