    We may have a player like this.

    A Potter-coached Ali-J this season? Let’s see!

      He is far from perfect. Everyone acknowledges his shortcomings. But who have we got that is better?
      Itís about evolving and it is clear Bloom is frustrated that we have stalled. As a club we should always strive to keep
      Improving so the recruitment team must have something up their sleeve

      Exactly. Some people seem to think he is as CH experimented with him in that position last season.
      I don't think he was a 'winger' as such. He lined up on the left of a front 3 (as he used to when playing in Holland, I recall reading). It's just that with Hughton's defensive minded approach, he was forced to track back and it made it look like he was a winger.

      You can't even read and yet you respond. It's really quite sad. Like a beached whale desperately thrashing about on a beach, except there's no one willing to push you back into the sea. Because the whale is a ****.

      I, for one, can't wait to see them complete the Locadia, Ali J hat-trick.

      To those who would see Knockaert head to Fulham for a modest fee....
      Palace away.
      Strip away the emotion and that it’s palace, for a moment .....on a footballing level, how many of our players have it them to produce a moment like that?
      I’m struggling.
      People get hung up on his weaknesses. He certainly has many.
      But what about his strengths.


      Unless we are planning to seriously upgrade, we will regret selling him.
      Jose against West Ham twice, Ali J against Huddersfield at home (I know he hit the bar but it was a whisker away)

      In my opinion AK transfer listed himself with that ridiculous foul/assault towards the back end of last season. Now with a new manager (no doubt made aware of AKs issues), a change of playing style, his age and debatable suitability for the PL, and the offer of reasonable millions in a transfer fee whilst cutting the wage bill, well why wouldn’t TB cash his chips in?

      Thanks Knocky, and good luck! All those crying over the departure of a talisman etc etc should remember that players always have, and always will, come and go. The club is forever.

      Like most people on here, I have mixed feelings. It's true that AK has it in him to get us off our seats and the goal at Palace was the extreme example (plus a great memory to leave us with). But those moments were becoming rarer last season. Plus he also has an uncanny ability to pick the wrong option and he could have been red-carded in the opening exchanges of that glorious win at Selhurst.

      His signing was arguably the present recruitment regime's greatest triumph (Duffy a close second) and selling him on at a big profit after three and a half years' fantastic service represents a significantly good bit of business. And it just might be the right time. It's my personal opinion that he always played better when Bruno was there to talk him through a game and that, of course, is no longer possible. His departure will also allow Ali J a chance to show what he can do in his best position.

      At Fulham he'll be first choice again at a level where we know he can excel and as long as they look after him off the field he'll enjoy himself there. If he helps them up, people might say we let him go too early, but would he have been able to deliver next season in a top division that's getting harder all the time?
      England are still the only team to have won the World Cup wearing red shirts.

      Solly March. And he has scored similar goals.

      My bad, I thought we were still in August 2018 and had the best shrewdest recruitment team in the premier league :-) I canít keep up!

      Knocky and Bruno had a real chemistry thing going on there. On its day, that overlapping combo down the right was an absolute joy to watch
