Hence the supposed ground sale.

I've read in a few places that the ground has been sold.

 

Do you really think these players would train and turn up to public events without signing a contract? Stop flouncing.

 

Where has it been mentioned that we have sold the ground, anywhere credible?

I can't imagine we'll be after two more centre halves. With Lees, Thorniley, Borner and Iorfa who can play there, surely there's only room for one more. 

 

Hector is clearly first choice, but it's likely we might have to play the long game in that pursuit. Is Willis going to wait patiently by on the off chance we fail to agree a deal for Hector? Very unlikely. I suspect Willis will agree a deal with another Championship club whilst we're still pursuing Hector. 

 

Agree about Souare though. He was a top performer for Palace before his car accident. If he could rediscover that form, he'd be a top player in the Championship. 

 

Van Aken is on the training pics from Portugal too. Another CB.

Not from what we've seen of him up to now he isn't.

Bruce might help him in that dept. He can never be as bad as he was at Wigan last opening day.

Lees, Borner, Iorfa, Thorniley, Van Aken, possibly Hector or Willis, Hutchinson and Fox who have covered there in emergencies.  3 at the back coming this season? Or, are we going to start doing some business shifting players out?

I find it strange we signed Iorfa. He clearly prefers Palmer and we signed Odubajo and he’s never had a look in at Centre half  here or even Wolves for that matter. Palmer did a good job filling in at left back but you can’t put that on the lad. We need a left back desperately. Unless Bruce saw something in Penney at Villa Park that he thinks he could get out of him every week.

I didn't get the impression he prefers Palmer in the slightest.  Iorfa wasn't selected initially because he'd hardly been playing but once he was up to speed I felt that he preferred Iorfa.

Because we managed to get him for £250k when clearly he's worth far more than that.

Long hard season. Got a feeling Palmer showing his versatility, alongside good performances last year, is the reason his contract got extended. He’s proven himself more than capable cover for both full back positions.

Oh aye, forgot about him. Easily done.

 

He'll be gone. Back to Holland on a season long loan I reckon. Can't any future for him whatsoever.

We'll sign a left back I reckon. 

 

The fact Bruce signed Lazaar when he first arrived last season. And were fairly strongly linked with Bidwell. And now the Souare rumour has surfaced. 

 

Are pretty strong indications that Bruce feels we're short in that area. 

 

Although, personally, I hope by signing a left back, we don't cast aside a very promising youngster in Penney. He needs games this season to be able to kick on from an encouraging start last season.

Not having it. 

 

We aren't in trouble - Bruce wouldn't come here if we were in trouble.

 

Scaremongering at it's finest. 

:Chansiri:"Mr Bruce we like to offer you this £1m pound contract"

lol "where do I sign"

:Chansiri:"just one thing,we may have a problem with p&s, meaning loans and free transfers.

lol : "did you say£2m"

:Chansiri:"yes"

lol "where do I sign"

Just like you made up that Bidwell was in Portugal.

 

 

Give over. I was repeating several posters who said they were out in Portugal and had seen him there. I made a mistake believing what was said, but I never made anything up.

 

Just out of interest, what are you beliefs on the situation?

Palmer was switched and Fox dropped to accommodate Iorfa. Suggests Bruce saw his value to the team. We are pretty loaded in his positions though. Will be interested to see who gets the nod - although Iorfa is banned for the opening two games anyway.

That and Odubajo is more of a winger than a full-back

I agree but I saw the fact he played Palmer there because he was more comfortable on the left than Iorfa, but with a new left back, see him going back to the right. Palmer played well last year Bruce was singing his praises on top of a Scotland call up. I think the place is his to lose. We shall see.

There is absolutely no proof of this.

 

Chansiri has said himself we are in trouble. Sooner people wake up the better. The three players we’ve ‘signed’ aren’t ours until the EFL sanction them.

There's the same amount of proof we're under an embargo too.

 

Remember, we aren't in this supposed embargo for ffp breaches.

 

PS: The players have signed deals with us, they are our players.
