    Andre Gomes

    The two known targets are: Barrios - car crash in the making Gomes - definite talent but currently going through a mental breakdown. Not mocking him but this isn’t going to be something he gets over any time soon Hopefully with Wanyama staying we’ll only be pursuing one of them, with the other...

    Wilmar Barrios

    He looks like the CM version of Aurier... dives in regardless of whether he can get the ball or not... red card waiting to happen. Hopefully the media reports are a load of twaddle.

    Player Anthony Martial

    The same Llorente whom ITK said was heading out of the door after being anonymous in cup games? He couldn’t even get on the bench towards the end of the season. He was a waste of space.

    Not as good as the cricket the other day when Willey got Head :ROFLMAO:

    Player Anthony Martial

    Such as? Which big money signings from poor sides have flourished at bigger clubs? Palace want ‘£70m’ for a players who’s contributed 16 goals in the last 2 seasons. Son on the other hand, a player whom like Zaha is hit and miss with his form has contributed 39 goals in the same period. Even...

    Player Anthony Martial

    List of star players whom have predominantly been signed from poor clubs only to fail to flatter when being surrounded by quality players.

    Player Anthony Martial

    In his position I doubt it since we’ve been told his alternative will only cost £20m... wouldn’t be surprised if it’s Serge Gnabry.

    Player Anthony Martial

    If Zaha had a real hunger he wouldn’t have signed a new contract at Palace. Plus we need to be very careful as do other teams with signing what appears to be the star players in struggling teams. Bony - flopped Sigurdsson - flopped Rodwell - flopped Berahino - flopped Benteke - flopped Llorente...

    Player Bruno Fernandes

    Why? Gelson wasn’t available on a free at the time (circa £60-70m buyout clause) and he’s not as good as Moura. The latter has delivered on a bigger stage, Gelson has only performed in a poor Portuguese league.

    Player Bruno Fernandes

    Granted it was only a couple of games but against Benfica especially he didn’t look anywhere near good enough for us. He kept massively over hitting through balls ala Sissoko and outdoing himself when doing step overs... finding his feet pointing one way and the ball not where it was meant to...

    Player Player watch: Toby Alderweireld

    I don’t think we’ve much choice other to accept the bid. With the new FFP rules coming in restricting net expenditure it’s going to reduce transfer fees, therefore this is too good an offer to turn down.

    Player Player watch: Toby Alderweireld

    The only way this deal will look worthwhile is if we reinvest the money in a quality addition to the squad. I don’t necessarily mean Toby out another CB in, get a quality CM or an alternative to Martial.

    Player Tanguy Ndombele

    This is the way forward and it gives us both balance and unpredictability. I know we've zero chance of getting him but the ideal anchorman as per City with Fernandinho is someone in Arturo Vidal's ilk... a player who is a tough tackler, reliable but can also keep playing ticking over. Diawara...

    Player Jack Grealish

    He’s more of a Zokora type player, he has some good attributes but he’s just doesn’t suit or tippy tappy intricate style of play. Yes, the latter mentioned players are horrific... Janssen looks like a chainsmoker who’s never trained a day in his life, always looks knackered after 20 mins lol
