  1. I see Pardew is doing his usual excellent job at Palace. One point. Tremendous. Now Remy coming in. It sounds like a decent attack but will Alan Pardew the quality oot of them? Very exciting times indeed for the Palace fans.

  2. Is Rotherham a good move for Armstrong? He needs decent management. Is Alan Stubby Stubbs up to it? I’m not sure about this one for Adam but I suppose we’ll have to wait and watch what happens.

  3. Will Sir Alan be sacked by the end of October? I think it’s a strong possibility. Then what’s next for the Silver Fox? Stay tuned……

    I think it would be a long old season for the lad if he went there, but at least he would playing at Championship level.

  6. Just finished my latest interview with the amazing Graham Carr:
    G2: Graham, with all the amazing signings you’ve made over the years for the club who do you really rate that didn’t quite make it with us?
    Graham: well thanks for having me on G2. That’s a very difficult question. I thought all the players were top, top signings. I loved Thauvin’s hair for example. And the way he dressed. That’s what caught my eye in the first place. Then there was the amazing Cabella. Still think he could come over here and score a goal or two. Others? Well you have to think Hairdryer. He’s got a real future in something or other…..
    G2: well ta for that Graham. I suppose you have to get back to work then….. (more’s the pity).

  7. It appears we are just trying to bulldoze our way to the PL. Our squad will be gargantuan in comparison to everyone else’s and shows Rafa and the club really don’t want to take any chances.

    Long may it continue

  8. Amazing how many players we are still being linked with, even after signing 11 or 12 (I’ve lost count myself) 😳. Interesting link to Liverpool player but big asking price.. Markovic, another Serb… Cannot see this happening but a loan could be good? They refused a £16 million bid for him recently.

  9. Armstrong has gone to Barnsley on loan for 6 months. That’s more like it. They are doing well, so he will be more successful there than at Rotherham.

  10. I’ve just been over on the Crystal Palace blog The Eagle’s Beak (love that name). They are really enjoying my comments and suggestions. I think everybody should go on there and help them out. I’ve already offered them a deal that would send John Carver to them for cash and players. The negotiations are going well so far……

  11. That’s great news about Arma. Much better club. No offense to Rotherham fans on here of course…..

  12. Barnsley is only a couple of hours from Newcastle so Armstrong could easily come home and see his family and mates on a day off.

  14. This is getting crazy. Spurs have supposedly REJECTED a 25 million pound bid for Heung-min Son from Wolfsberg. He played 28 games last year and scored 4 times.

    Given that, I suppose 25 mil+ for Sissoko is not out of the question.

    I see Palace are interested in Wilshere now. Go for it Alan, you might see him as your savior but his ankles are made of playdough.

  15. I have been looking at the Daily Mail latest transfer feed and there are some stupid fees being paid. Even Hull are making a belated push to stay up. That guy on Sky Sports will be having orgasms tomorrow by the looks of this.

  16. Pards is certainly acting like a man previously starved of player funds , now he’s at Palace he’s spending the owners money like it’s going out of fashion.

    Moussa Sissoko seems desperate to take ANY deal to get away from #nufc

    Yep, and we’re desperate for him to go.

  18. Apparently Villa agreed to pay £20m for Able Hernandez at Hull but they couldn’t sort the deal with him… 😮

  21. I think Sissoko may do OK at Spurs and I would take anything North of 20 million for him. I don’t think he is worth that, but given what Villa are paying for Championship strikers maybe he is. Even Mourinho is saying it has gone nuts but they have to suck it up and pay it. In typical Jose fashion he was full of hyperbole and said 1 mil players were going for 10 million.

      (Quote)

  22. I think Spurs need a boost and overachieved last year so we could offload Moussa to them. Kane is obviously knackered and was their only real striker (Son scored 4). Lamela had a great season but had done nowt before that and Dele Alli could be marked out of games now that teams know he is a good player.

  23. Villa have bought Bristol City’s leading scorer Jonathan Kodija for £11M rising to £14m with add ons. That in a nut shell is what always irked me about City, always sell their best forwards, terrible lack of ambition still. Luckily they have Abraham on loan who is scoring.

    i thought it strange mate,thought they got a money guy in there now

  26. Eric, Spuds best chance of success was last season when City, Manure and Arsenal all underperformed when it mattered. Manure look back to their old selves now and I don’t see City having another off season either and Arsenal always make top 4 so 4th place is up for grabs but Liverpool will want a bit of that along with a few others.

  27. Ice, They do my nut in, can’t be doing with it, gave up on them years ago. They got plenty of cash now but still no REAL ambition. My mates son has the cleaning contract down there, they pay his cleaners minimum wage and moan like fuck about every last detail. Tight fisted don’t begin to cover it, must be terrified of going to the wall again, so penny pinch on a whole new level.

    talk about not living in the real world,sounds like they have gone the other way down right money grabbers ffs

  29. Kimtoon: you missed Chelsea with a world class Manager and Leicester who have kept their team together and added some 20 mil+ players so are showing even more ambition.

    I would put the following ahead of Spurs, and probably in this order:

    Man City
    Man U
    Chelsea
    Leicester
    Arsenal
    Liverpool

  30. Ice, I can’t even blame it on the cost of the Stadium revamp cause they have always done it, no matter who owned the club.

    😳 ha can’t believe I forgot Chelsea like , doh. Still think it’ll be between Chelsea and Liverpool for 4th, Leicester will do well to get top 6 this season imo.

  32. Spurs have only added Wanyama and Jensen. Jensen is young and from the Dutch league so who knows with him. When you consider what the other top teams have done I think for once Levy might blink first and up the offer for Sissoko. He did have one of his few good games against Spurs on the last day so hopefully that sticks in their mind rather than his abysmal stats.

      (Quote)

  33. Nobody’s handing out 25M for Sissypants. He’s ours for good lads and lasses. Just think, 9 more months of sulking if he doesn’t go in January. 😯

  34. Spurs will fade again. It’s already starting to happen. Several of their young players have gone off the boil. Kane, and Dele Alli come to mind.

      (Quote)

  35. Got to say, it’s looking quite likely that Sissoko might be staying. I assume it would have to be a very good offer to sell him at this late time.

    Hope we get behind him if he stays.

  36. Just read a story saying young Sterry is off to Coventry on loan. I’m glad he will be getting regular footy, but I think he’s good enough for the Championship. So long as he kicks in I guess and we know Coventry have a good record progressing young talent.

      (Quote)

  37. I don’t want Sissy to stay tbh. Can’t bear the thought of him bleating in to the press in the run up to and during the next window. Can’t be good for the team. Just get rid.

  38. Since it is the International Break I am going to stick the boot into Rooney. I have watched a lot of the Man U games for the past 2 years because they were often the late or early games. He has been pants in all but half a dozen and he was just as bad against Iceland. I have finally figured out what he is now. He is like a once really good player playing in those legends games where they can produce some flash of great skill that reminds you of what they were but you know the game would pass then by if they went anywhere near the PL. This is what it was like for Rooney against Hull, where he was the worst player on the pitch (including Hull’s players) and then provided the match winning assist with a lovely piece of skill.

    The conundrum for Fat Sam is do you play Rooney in the qualifiers where he has always beaten up on the minnows or do you move on now knowing 1) Rooney has been shit at the last 3 tournaments in is shit in the PL, and 2) he will be even worse when he is 2 years older and even slower in Russia?

    I would drop him.

      (Quote)

  39. Oh, and you can’t have a player dictating where he will play in the team. That just shows a weak manager which we all found out that Mr. Roy was if you hadn’t figured that out by his Liverpool experience. If the Bloated Toad formerly from doon the road wants to make a statement he should drop Rooney.

  40. Levy is one big chancer mind, he sells reserves for £12 13m and plays hardball with us over Townsend last year when he clearly wasn’t wanted then Bids £16m for a full French international !!.
    Jog on tight arse

      (Quote)

  41. Reckon we will get min £25m for Sissoko from Spurs. They haven’t signed anywhere near enough players this season. Their team against Liverpool was the same one that played last season, so they’ll be under pressure. I also don’t see Ashley selling on the cheapo.

      (Quote)

  42. Hahaha – Levy is one giant bell end if he thinks he can sell Ryan Mason to Hull for £13m then buy Sissoko for £15m the following day.
    Here’s the think Levy, you’ve just got £13m for Chadli & £13m for Mason – hand us that £26m and you are welcome to Sissoko 😉

  43. Sissoko leaves French training squad to sort out a potential move to THFC according to SSN
    Better be a decent offer

      (Quote)

  44. Rumour has it that Ashley doesn’t really want to sell him and that he thinks he has a duty to get us back up. Spurs walked away too apparently.

      (Quote)

  45. The same Daniel Levy that probably still does his shopping at Iceland. That is mental.

    Hope I’m wrong but I can’t see this happening today.

    kimtoon:
    Levy blinked first then

      (Quote)

  46. Rumour is that Spurs have cooled their interest. Will Ashley drop another £5m?
    What a shambles after 3 months of trading. The whole window thing needs reforming. No deals after kick off!

  47. To be honest I would never do business with Spurs. Anyone who thinks Ryan Mason is worth £14M but Sissoko is only worth £16m isn’t right in the head…

  48. Ryan Mason – good honest, hard working player.

    I’d pay more for him then that waste of space.

  50. Andy – you kidding mate? Ryan Mason – good honest, hard working player? Very very ordinary in my opinion. Not much of a choice between Saivet and him.
