David Moyes barely trusted a kid in his 10 years here, no way was he gonna bring Zaha through especially in his first year at United. Barely managed any wingers in his decade here either, probably wou

He annoys me, constantly moaning to refs all the time like he’s not allowed to be tackled. Good player on his day but can’t see anyone touching him for £70 mill or whatever palace are asking for him.

It never serves a purpose and is always a blight on the game.  Players should be, rightly, heckled and punished for doing so, the soft-ass primadonnas...

I thought Zaha is getting touted at around £70 mil for starters.

Also not sure where the Neres £50mil has come from when last I saw it was £20-25.

Prices can’t really be predicted I guess.

Id still go Lozano at 30 before paying over the odds on the other 2, although I think he’d be cheaper than that.

Everton Soares is a shout, Allan Saint-Maxime as well.

Oh yeh I completely made up the prices just for some fun ;)

Although to be fair, so do the media!

You belong with that numpty who’s started posting.... too much sense! 
Seasons over now, can’t we all get back to talking a load of satisfying crap again.

So who thinks we should bring back the following:

Gana

Lukaku

Stones

I guess its me you are referring too as that 'numpty' - as not overly familiar with your commenting style of or sense of humour, I not sure in what context I should take be taking your comment - banter or rudeness?

I did mean you mate, but just in a fun way. You talk complete sense to be honest and it hurts my attempts at winding people up haha! 
 

Anything I ever post, take as banter mate. I do t mean anything by it at all.... unless it’s aimed at Palfy!

He's a better player tbf. I think he's a talented player.  May be more value out there I suppose. 

Similar age, rated by MOTD and looks good on there. A bit more talented maybe but still a showcase player rather than someone you build around

Don't think there are many wingers you build a team around.  They are supplementary players.  

I'm undecided on this lad, he clearly can do it at this level but he may be very hot and cold I agree.

Assuming this isn’t completely made up it would surely require Sig and Walcott leaving at a minimum to make it financially viable (perhaps Bolassie as well).

With us yet to actually sell anyome other than Morgan clubs will be getting some good deals on our surplus players as they will know we need to sell.

It’s a funny game. They know we’d want to sell but they will also become increasingly desperate as the window winds down. A lot of it will also depend on how many clubs show interest. We have a lot more leverage if 3 clubs are in for Siggy rather than 1

Fingers crossed. It would be my guess that a lot of clubs would show interest as he has good qualities, but many will obviously be deterred by the wage.

Fourth Official now pushing that we are preparing a new offer. Suitably vague to allow all outcomes though. 

I am probably in a minority but for the right money I would have him here in a heart beat. The three new lads in midfield, Richarlison one side, Zaha the other and whoever can find the net out of Kean and DCL up front. 

Aside from the striker, that would be up there with the best midfield and attacks in the league.

The only concern I would have with this is that we would have a lot of similar players on big wages for similar roles. Most of the others are shite but it would be the best part of 1 mil per week on 10s and wingers.

Bolassie/Siggy combination plus £20m....

Bolasie and Delph for me. £20m still seems a bit steep for a highlights player but then again it’s a reasonable price for an upgrade on what we’ve got. Still rather save the money to be honest, more important areas to concentrate on (even if they’re effectively nice to haves now)

I like the fact that he's got pace, beats a man and has end product ... Automatically puts him as our best winger.

Agree on Delph ... Can't wait to get rid of him.

I would be so underwhelmed with this signing. I wouldn't feel positive about him being ours in the slightest - the only good part of the deal is the possibility of us offloading a turd or two, nothing to do with him arriving.

I think if the numbers are right then he's a potentially brilliant "money ball" player.    Apparently he's look brilliant in pre season.

I'm just not a fan of him at all, I never have been. I think he's hugely over-rated - by himself, Palace fans and a lot of our fans too. In my opinion he's worth absolutely nowhere near the money we'd pay for him, and the wages he'd ask for.

I'd prefer us to be looking at a younger (better) winger after us bringing in a few players that are at the other end of the age scale personally, but if he arrives he'll have my support.

I didn’t put Delph down because they don’t play the same position, but if we throw Delph in as well we should nearly save the £10.50

I’m not saying whether you’re right or wrong on Zaha but personally I put a lot of stock in what the supporters of his own club think. They’ve seen him for years and will have a better idea of his quality than any of us. 
 

An example from our end would be Mason Holgate. I’ve seen it a lot this offseason where supporters from other clubs think our starting CB’s are Mina and Keane and have no idea that Mason was our best defender last season.

When I say overrated by his own fans, I mean because of how important he is to them. There's no doubt that without him they'd have been fucked a long time ago, so they want a huge amount of money for him and quite rightly based on that fact. But he wouldn't be that important to us - that's why I'd prefer us to be looking elsewhere.

For me it just makes no sense but, like I said, if he comes I'll support him.

Yeah fair enough. I just think he's more proven at this level. So hard to get wingers in who do a job.

I agree in a sense that he is one of those players that I like and think he would do well here but at the same time, his actual cost is far greater than it should be. As you have said he is far more important to Palace than he would be anywhere else. In some ways its a similar situation to Gylfi coming from Swansea.

Don't see how he really works for us. We've picked up three more senior players on big wages recently, imho any further signings should be on the younger end, not top wage earners.

A very valid point, in the last 3-4 days our midfield as probably become the oldest  in the league, some good younger players to learn off our first team mids would be a sensible way to go

I would agree when fees like 80M we’re getting thrown around, but at 20-30M that’s been mentioned in the media it sounds about right. 
 

Wages getting out of hand is a completely different matter though. Need to hope that the club are doing the right thing in that regard before we keep bringing in new signings.

I rate Zaha. Didn't have the best of seasons but he's quick, creative, can score and play across the front line. Only four goals last season, but a total of 26 in the previous three. Also plenty of assists. He's fouled a lot because he's so hard to contain.

With Zaha added to James and Doucoure the midfield can suddenly score 25-30 goals a season instead of about 5.

I'm not a massive fan of this transfer I'll be honest, seems like a self inflated big fish in a small pond that wouldn't be able to cut it in a European challenging side. His constant crying to leave the club doesn't sit well with me either, although I suppose if I was trapped at somewhere like Crystal Palace I'd do the same. 

For the money that it would cost to bring him in I'd rather we went for Leon Bailey (B04) or David Neres (Ajax) who are much younger and would hopefully cost a lot less - I'm also hoping that any deal would include some sort of player swap; try to wiggle Tosun or Bolasie (both ex-Palace) or Iwobi (same position) into any Zaha deal. 

With the current pandemic, it seems like the perfect excuse to add deadwood into any transfer.
