I just don't think he's even that good to be honest.



He like a s**t Ozil, turns up when he fancies it and gets more plaudits than he deserves as when he does try its decent, people then forget about the dross and lack of effort applied previously

I think Zaha this season has gone up a notch, Palace have taken 0 points when he's not in the side, compared to 41 with - When you watch him now he looks a lot more dangerous - I'd also consider Loftus-Cheek as another option

RLC would be a very good signing for our 3 man midfield. Great Barkley replacement.

Would probably say outside the top 6 the best attacking talents are maybe (no order) :

Shaqiri, Arnautovic, Sigurdsson, Mahrez, Lanzini, Boufal, Tadic, Redmond, Gross, Zaha...

Can’t think of any more right now like. Any of the above would improve us a bit, three or four would take us up a level, one or two could comfortably play top 4 football with a bit of patience.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Haven’t seen Richarlison since before Christmas la, talking about 1 in 6 players.








I kid, I kid. In all honesty, richarlison looks twice the player (closer to arnautovic to my eye as well). Would love him here.

The problem is one's 14m and the other will be over 40m

I think he wakes everyday from that dream. Badly advised and I reckon he knows it. I'd take him back for 8 but where do you play him?

I’d have Barkley back. I fancy they’d want more than they paid though and that would stick in the throat somewhat. Also he’s good but we desperately have to find 1 or 2 with potential to be great if we are gonna bridge the gap

Redmond is massively overrated. Zaha is probably the best player outside of the top 6.

The problem we have is that I’d imagine the likes of zaha would sooner wait for a better offer than sign for us. So even if we were the only interested party this summer he’d probably give it another season at palace.

Should 'is he an improvement on what we've got' be the defining characteristic of our transfer policy? I'm not sure it should.

I think it should be more 'is he enough of an improvement?'.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Yep. And potential should be a factor as well. You can get away with signing someone slightly better (or as good) as what you have if that player has lots of room to grow and you have the coaches to teach him.

Aside: I do think Barkley is an interesting project for the right manager. If you set him up with, say, Pochettino, it's not too hard to imagine him turning into a powerful, press-resistant midfielder like Mousa Dembele.

I don’t think anyone’s saying shaqiri should be bought and is the answer to any problems.

But the fact is, for a cut price fee he wouldn’t be a bad signing for many prem teams, us included. Yeah, I get it, I want the next sane too, but he would add quality and ability to a squad that is among the most boring in the league.

Surely we can all agree on this fact ; he doesn’t look great at stoke, but for the right price he’d be useful.

Would not be surprised to see Chelsea buy him as a Hazard back up, or Liverpool as a Salah back up.
