Top of the Crocks

Who are some of your favourite injury-cursed Palace players over the years? Ones that leave you thinking what might have been. I’ll throw in a couple to start.

Paul Warhurst - An absolute Rolls Royce of a player with such a sublime touch. Such a shame he spent most of his time in the garage with the bonnet up.

Paul Ifill - His starting appearances always seemed the same. A sparkling half hour followed by twang, there goes the hamstring, see you in a month.

Mike Elwiss, Martin Hinshelwood and Kevin Mabbut.

I also think back to the game v Liverpool when Lombardo and Padovano started and ripped thm.apart for 20 minutes....before both of them going off injured.

The late, great Ray "Butch" Wilkins. Surely statistically the least successful Palace career in the modern era. But who knows how things might have turned out if he'd lasted much more than half of his Selhurst Park debut in that 1-6 defeat by Liverpool.

I suspect Sakho and Tomkins may eclipse all of those. As in, absolute qulity but we never see them. Tomkins is unlucky, but Sakho play 30 minutes, has one awkward turn and we know he's gone. The same as the OP's Ifill.

Interesting Pete's Lombardo and Padavano. Everyone talks about how great Liverpool are. Yeah great at nobbling players and going unpunished for it if the game isn't going for them. See Newcastle on Bruce Dyer in one particular game...and certain opposition teams do it to Wilf as well.

Referees overlook it all the time, but if it's a Palace player, it is yellow on first foul, and occasionally an absurd red. Even with VAR. It's not just us whining, is it?

Add in Dawson on Speroni, and Capoute on Wilf, and then the crap that comes afterwards that the referee saw it at the time and decided it wasn't a foul, so no retrospective punishment can be made.

Joniesta, felt like he was in Wickham territory.

Ventola a shame too.

Kevin Mabbutt: Seemed to always be injured but return at the death to save us from the third division. Absolute classy forward.

I could be wrong but I don't remember him being particularly injury prone, just out for a long time after that horrific knee injury suffered in a game against Leeds.
But you're right, absolute class, and one of my favourite Palace players.

Hennesey always had/has back problems caused by picking the ball out of the back of the net so often.

Not sure he meets the criteria of a sadly wasted talent, though. A steady, but journeyman defender scores a perfect hatrick against him in record time in an emergency position up front, and Palace go out and buy him.







I don't mind Hennessey TBF. But he is the greasy spam in a Speroni/Guaita sandwich.

Some good calls.

Salako, I know he played a lot before he did his knee but I always remember just before it happened he broke into the England team and played in some crappy friendlies in Australia, New zealand etc he was the only positive from that tour.

That was the end of Geoff Thomas's Eng career unfortunately, open goal, put it over from 2 yards out.

Kevin Mabbutt is a great shout. I definitely seem to remember him being injured often, and always being excited when he was back (added for context - I was only about 10 years old then !).
We were twice the team when he was in it, though i appreciate thats not saying much in that era...

Yogi Hughes. Still remembered despite only making around 20 appearances in his year and a half at the club. Got crocked in his unbelievable performance against Sheff Utd and was never the same player again. Believe we tried to pull a fast one when we sold him to Sunderland for 5,000. I think we might have had to reimburse them.

Value of contribution to games played ratio might make him number 1. I can think of Phillips, Lombardo, Stewart, Cole. But I think they are somewhat behind.
