Andros Townsend is free, available, experienced and still only 29 years old. Worth a punt surely.

Also heard from a Spurs fan that the rumour doing the rounds is that Nuno wants Fabio Silva and that Nuno personally told Shi to sign him.

Palace have released a lot of players - most probably too old and not good enough - but for stopgaps, such as during AFN, several of them might have some value.
Not sure WF is a priority (depends on our resources ie how many can we sign) but Townsend along with Van Anholt and maybe in extremis even Cahill ( 35 but still solid as a back up RCB? ) might be worth looking at depending on the money they want and the other options we have available?

Not for me guys, lots of names being linked, as usual, could well be a totally different starting eleven for first game, coyw.

Jas, it seemed clear that Jeff owned up to buying Silva and that it was 'imposed' on Nuno. But if Nuno makes a bid for him now I will think again. One thing for sure, if Silva is a hit this season, everyone and the dog and the tea lady will say they wanted him!

Deep I'll even admit it was me told Jeff to go get him!
By the way my eldest son Spurs fan just laughed at that, they have needs but he's not one of them I'm told!

I suppose everything that's gone wrong will ultimately be Jeff Shi fault then considering it is he who signs the cheques. I mean, it doesn't matter if Nuno said 'I want x player' and Shi signed him but he was a flop, no blame on the manager just on the guy who signs the cheques eh?

Roderick Miranda, Ofusu-Ayeh, Cutrone, Vallejo to name but a few.

Jas no one has said that Nuno was perfect, I certainly haven't. It was about one instance where the money at that time could have been better spent. As I've already said Silva right player wrong time. Its over done with. Let's hope this year for Lage we get what we need.

Townsend isn't a bad shout tbf plenty of experience and youngsters can learn a lot from him.

Van Aanholt would be the one i'd go for on a free, with Jonny out and marcal not reliable with fitness he'd be a great option along side ait nouri.

Van Aanholt would be a good sshout.
