The funny thing is that I heard a radio discussion (can't remember who was involved now) the other week in an England context. The view was that Townsend had improved since coming to Palace because he is playing on the left. They were saying he used to be a one trick pony, but now he is getting crosses over from the left, while still being able to cut in and shoot. The conclusion being that the change of position had brought him back into the international reckoning.

The trouble with having a poor left back is it puts a lot of defensive pressure on the left winger solve that and I can see AT being a bigger threat.

so obviously Townsend was never a Bolasie replacement from the start but they bullshit to us yet again and told us he was so they didn't have to spend big aga8n replacing Bolasie. Well thought out to the ******* dumb decision makers at the club yet again.

That is utter bollocks.

Bolasie and Zaha were both unsettled by that malevolent dwarf Levy at Spurs, who also f*cked up Berahino's career at WBA.

Bolasie ended up at Everton because it was clear he couldn't be arsed at Palace anymore and Everton would pay us 25 mi, so it was a good deal when we secured Benteke and Townsend on the back of it.

We told the world and his wife that Wilf was not for sale and I'm sure he got a little talking-to regarding his last couple of transfer f*ck ups and the effect that had on his career.

He's got a pay rise I bet and everything is hunky dory with him right now.

Townsend looks pretty predictable to play against to me. On the left or the right.

Cut in, shoot, repeat.

End of the day Townsend should be honoured to wear the shirt wherever he plays. He should adapt if he's that good

I hate putting Ward down, but these goals are very different for me. Zeki showed great skill and pace and put in a wicked ball for us to score. Wards cross wasn't a dangerous one and required a world class header from Benteke to score.

Speculative bollocks at its finest. Well done BBS.

On a point of order, wasn't the Zeki cross at Sunderland for jimmy mac? It was chungy who crossed for benteke's last minute goal at the stadium of light.

It must have been a fairly confrontational meeting between Townsend and Pardew for him to be subsequently dropped.

It obviously didnt end with Pardew happy

Strange. Andros is right footed and loves a shot so you'd think he would like playing on the left. I guess the issue arises if Pardew has been demanding he gets down the byline and crosses the ball in for Benteke.

Andros is left footed and loves a shot, hence he loves playing on the right.

Football is all about opinions but anyone who thinks Townsend isn't good enough for us simply should not be allowed to discuss football and that includes Pardew

Townsend wasn't brought in on the back end of the Bolasie deal, he was brought in to play with Bolasie untill the club decided not to replace one of our best players then they lied and told us he was Bolasies replacement.

Yep, another BBS invention of trying to stir up shit with so called disharmony. I heard that the change on Saturday was purely tactical. So we tried something else and it didn't work (mainly because Liverpool were a cut above us) and it was mainly poor defending which caused the goals and subsequent defeat. Just because we lose or we try something different doesn't mean there is a squad or manager fall out all the time.

That may be the case. However we currently have one of the best headerers of the ball up top. One who will thrive of crosses. Therefore its vitally important we play players out wide capable of getting the ball in the box with their strongest foot (like Zaha has done very well this season).

Im no fan of Pardew right now but if one of his players is objecting to play in a vital position to the extent where he drops him we have a problem. Lets not also forget we are hugely short with left sided players at the moment as it is. Seems hugely unprofessional and selfish of Townsend to me.
