Is this the reason why there are no signings this month?

There was a discussion on Talksport this morning about Palace's lack of dealings in the transfer market and Vieira's frustrations.

Well someone on the show (not Jordan) said they had insider info which was the reason why Vieira wasn't backed in the summer or this month is that the board aren't convinced on Patrick, they didn't feel he did enough last season with the team, given previous investment.

Interesting if true and would potentially explain where we currently are.

Sounds like absolute bullsh!t to me. We are in the midst of a huge turnover of literally the oldest squad in the division. It was not going to happen overnight people need to calm down.

Bizarre take on things from TS.

My takeaway from last season is that PV proved himself to be qualified for PL level and would justify backing in the transfer market as a result.

I suspect the (excellent) article in The Athletic today by Woosie detailing our complex situation is more precise as to why we haven't spent more.

What previous investment and half the team had to be replaced in his first season.

We finished 12th, and if we hadn't lost to Everton after being 2 goals up we would have finished in our highest position of 9th.

He's an idiot and he manufactured the story linking Zaha with Chelsea at the end of the last window. He basically kept saying he "had a feeling" Wilf would end up there, next thing it gets reported as "Talksport Understands", then it's in all the papers. He is a twat

No utter bollocks. Woosies article in the Athletic combined with Ed Aaron's Guardian article AND Textors comments to one of the Palace social media feeds tell you what's going on.

Woosie has written an article for The Athletic on the lack of transfer dealings and the probable reasons why, pretty sure this isnt mentioned.

  • Ownership structure is complicated with Harris & Blitzer wanting away
  • All owners are committed to a sustainable approach
  • Parish appears to want to prioritise the stadium
  • Textor appears to want to invest in the playing squad yet Parish is risk adverse to spending given prior outlays being unsuccessful - right player is critical
  • Textor believes we can make top half by being more ambitious in the transfer market to buy low, develop, sell high and reinvest
  • The above would be supplemented by the academy and the multi-club model.
  • RB, CM and a ST are identified as positions of priority

I guess the risk averse point about Parish explains his apparent obsession with Gallagher (and AWB): players who've been successful here before, so less of a risk. (Although Batshuayi's second spell suggests that's not a failsafe policy.)
