Who do you want Summer 2020

I'd much rather have Barnes hit 4 or 5 chances a game straight at the keeper. He doesn't strike fear into any fullback. 

 

The reason Zaha gets kicked is because he's a threat, in many ways their only threat. He could join a team that have more threats and be more productive due to teams being unable to stick 2 people on him. Would rather have somebody in my team that needs stopping. He also has experience of being a focal point, broad shoulders, carrying the weight of expectation from teammates/fans, something we lack in many of our passive, meek, nicey nicey players. 

Who said he gets kicked?

 

Usually he just feels a defenders breath on him and then gets shot by the famous sniper on the roof......

 

The same sniper that gets Grealish every game aswell.......

Incidentally, Palace have the most bookings for simulation since 15/16 with 10 (Zaha with 4 bookings) so perhaps it is encouraged (or not discouraged enough) there. 1 booking per season is not good, but it's hardly damning considering a couple of his bookings were highly debated.

 

We've had our fair share of culprits with Vardy and Maddison both, inexcusably, picking up 2nd yellows during games for simulation.

 

Perhaps we look at some players from Burnley who have had 0 bookings, for simulation this season. McNeil?

I think at £40m zaha would be a decent price, not sure we’ll be going for a “marquee” signing this summer 

If he starts kicking up a fuss the longer the window goes on, they'll be lucky to get £30m. He's already started making the noises the day after the season ended and Roy is resigned to him leaving. Top 4, I doubt will need him. Spurs, Arsenal, Everton and us could be, realistic. None can afford £40m I would have thought.

Zaha is on £130k a week, only way he's moving is by taking a pay cut i'd say, his last season hasn't been good.

Chelsea face competition from Bayer Leverkusen for Ajax keeper Andre Onana as 'Germans see opening £18m offer rejected'

 

30m would be a snip

Maignan is my shout. Would be cheaper n all by half.

Some decent options for that RW position that shouldn’t cost the world. 

 

Matheus Pereira - Looked class in the championship, and if West Brom don’t go for him would probs be my first choice.

• David Brooks - Creative left footed right winger, and should be available for a decent price should Bournemouth go down.

• Grealish - Most established and most expensive on the list but not sure where he fits, would be a very decent addition, but would mean more square pegs in round holes and all that. 

• Ismailia Sarr - Looked decent in recent weeks very direct and should be available for a decent price if Watford go down.

• Benrahma - If Brentford don’t come up, but again not a natural RW.

..for a good price he fits the way we seem to want to go!!!

  Won't cost that much, at least not compared to Zaha.

A tricky winger is essential if we want to push on. Someone that can beat a man like Mahrez used to. Benhrama seems the obvious target if Brentford don’t go up. Zaha doesn’t really feel like an “us” signing but he may just need a fresh start and could be great for us if we could get him on the cheap.

People turning their nose up to Zaha like he wouldn’t come in and start every game for us. 

He definitely would.

 

But for 40m and 100k+ a week, that'll be our whole transfer budget gone on one player.

Forget about Zaha. He's not leaving Palace to play for us.

Dude should be happy with any European competition. Had his chance at utd and fluffed it and hasn't exactly lit the world on fire since.

I wouldn't have taken Zaha a year ago but would like him to join now, I think he is exactly what we need. From our wingers, only Barnes can scare a defender (unless the defender has a phobia of stepovers that lead to nothing or lofted crosses to nobody) but he is still learning. Zaha would require 2-3 defenders which gives more space for everyone else. He obviously doesnt want to be at Palace anymore, if he actually wanted to join us and was up for it, we'd be laughing. I imagine he is looking for CL though.

Yeah potentially unless there’s other sales etc. 
 

I just find it incomprehensible how any of our fans could say ‘nah I wouldn’t take Zaha’ on a purely football based opinion

...He failed at United and is now hiding at Palace!!!

 At his age he needs to make a decision to determine if he is got it in him to go somewhere else and succeed.

  We are just the right club for him to move to, no real pressure, with the potential to improve a team going forward.

He's done absolutely nothing this season. Nothing at all. Bombed at Man U. Fair enough he's got real talent but hes do inconsistent. There's way better options for what he'd cost. Pass

Palace have done nothing for years. They just exist... he does what he can knowing he's gonna have 3 defenders kicking lumps out of him every game. You think getting him into the positions Barnes gets into, he wouldn't be more productive? Zaha has McArthur and McCarthy feeding him chances... 

 

We said at the end of last season, Barnes just needs a goal, but it came and he still doesn't convert enough. I like Barnes, he gets into promising positions but he doesn't utilise them enough. He could still improve but he doesn't even have competition for his spot.

I would take Deeney a different option to what we have, and a leader on the pitch. And his interviews are decent.

Why get Deene when you can get Callum Wilson for 10m due to a relegation release clause
