Wilfís crossing is improving. But his pace probably isnít good enough to beat a full back anymore. So I agree with you. And Schlupp is very left footed and plays on the left for that reason.

I think the picking of his passes has improved a lot under Roy but I am not sure I agree about Wilfís crossing. But by that I was meaning putting it on someoneís head. I do think he has lost, or certainly doesnít use that electric burst of pace that he always had. He always relied more on the tricks anyway and I donít think he is slow but we donít see him leave many players for dead with pace often now after he has beaten them. There was one moment at the end of the Everton match where he left Godfrey scrambling (a very impressive youngster) behind him that was good to see.

Funnily enough I would also say Schlupp favours his left but he is pretty good with either. That game of opinions again.

What is petty clear is that we play a lot better when they are both on the pitch. They also play well together I always think.

Exactly the kind of player we should be signing. Could get him for £30m which isn’t much these days

Jesus he is worth no where near that. Plus, we should not be spending £30m on anyone.

Less than it was relatively speaking perhaps... it is still a HUGE financial commitment for any club. Absolutely GARGANTUAN for a club like palace.

Sakho + benteke + some mid range fees like tomkins and schlupp has crippled us in to not spending for the last 3-4 years.

I'm not saying we Absolutely can't spend a fee like that but it would have a huge impact on whats left and cant be dismissed as not much these days in any way at all

For £30m I would expect the jewel in the crown of a rebuild.

Yeah itís not like weíve just lost £60 million and are in a pandemic...

Weíre not in a position to spend that sort of money on anyone and nor should we. Juryís still out on Mateta but heís the sort of signing we need to be making, not massive sums on players like AMN.

These players are only worth what buyers are prepared to pay. That threshold has surely dropped over the last 12 months. It's all relative I suppose, and like others have said, if we play our cards right this window, could set ourselves up for a couple of seasons and beyond.

I'm a very long way from an expert, but is he worth more than £13m?

When we talk about CPFC's spending power, to be honest after Eight seasons of lucrative premiership money we should be in a position to be able to spend 30m on a player without it being a crippling amount, which is probably what it would be currently.
The main problem i feel that is holding us back is the uncertainty hanging over us regarding our American owners and their committment to us long term, also no doubting the non progress in the Stadium improvements dragging on has played a big part in holding us back. It really is a pity, other than having an antiquated stadium we have so much to offer like a fantastic catchment area with fans desperate for success and waiting to flock back in numbers if there is a hint of success to look forward too.
I see the Leicester formula/planning and the progress also success they have made and feel that is the plan we should have worked to, offcourse the difference being their OWNERS compared to ours (Parish excluded) where as they have fully committed ones we instead have ones desperate to walk away, until that changes we will continue to be a bargain basement club.

We have a 25k ground, low end commercial income and owners who donít put cash in.

I have not seen enough quality in Maitland-Niles to warrant the transfer fee suggested . He tends to amble through games in second gear .

With regards to Townsend if he would accept a reasonable salary i would keep him . He is a very decent squad player and with so many incomings needed , he can still do a job for us . He has never had blistering pace but is not slow . Still has it in him to get past a player and get a cross in . It could be that he is not effective offensively the last couple of seasons as he is playing more as a midfield player and generally gives us protection on right side . This is a result of the way play and he has helped to provide cover for AWB , Ward and Clyne .

Ignoring the buying and selling of players we haven't made an operating profit of more than £30m in any of our seasons in the Premier League. The closest we got was 2013/14 but that was before player wages caught up.

Our average since promotion is about £10m per season which means we are reliant on owners to fund the purchase of players. That £10m doesn't even cover the cost of one Benteke for one season.
