Not sure how much truth there is in this, but surely he can just buy himself out of his contract?
$20m for a two year contract is very generous. Highly unlikely Glasner is on anywhere near that.

I'm calling bullshit on the $100m request, although Beaky is enough of a deluded twunt to try it on.
He needs to find the money to underpin his ring fenced folly

From hoping they might get relegated to ending up above us!! Scary.......
.... and we've got Chelsea and Utd, both of whom are playing for European places (as are we ... just)

Current form, last 10 is quite telling.

Leyton, E10.
Glasner doing a great job. They’ve hired well and if he’s keen to see the project thru, at least until the end of next season, they’ll be pushing Europa. A sign of long term change imo. Funny how clubs like Chelsea, United need to spend a billion and 18 months to win a few games. Glasner has done the basics right. A smaller club in comparison but admirable nonetheless.

Think the Bayern interest has come a bit too late but never say never. Compensation will be a turn off for Bayern but I’ve never understood the logic that a player can be signed for £30m and waste away on the bench yet a manager is deemed expensive if the compensation is over £10m. The Potter move changed that logic a bit, but if Glasner is as good as he appears, and as good as Bayern rate him, then anything around £30m would be good business. Especially if they’re signing a coach, man manager and rebranding a club philosophy all at the same time.

Brighton factually.....
Can we change the thread title to Brighton Fans Biggest Fear until we get over the line this season? :wink:
Especially knowing that after seeing some of the photos doing the rounds of Villa players and manager on the piss, Palace will win their last game.
It will put a real dampener on the season.

I think it depends on the person you are, building something from scratch by given what you have and making it a success must give you more satisfaction than being given a failing team and spending millions on it…maybe ?

As with any form snapshot - it isn't telling at all.

We weren't as good as our first 10 games - you aren't as good as your last 10.

League table is the best indicator.
And over the season there won't be too much between the two teams ( as long as we have to play 10 more games than you)

I very much doubt Palace could stop Glasner leaving - they might be able to enforce some sort of reasonable notice period in the UK, but if Glasner wants to return to Germany I’m not sure there’s much they could do to stop him. Sure, there would be compensation - but it would need to be a “reasonable” sum (not $100m, unless that’s in his contract). The key issue is whether Glasner wants to go.
They can't force him to come to work, but they can prevent him from working elsewhere until his contract has expired. This is more or less what we did with Ashworth until Newcastle paid the compo. The downside being that the employer still has to keep paying a salary during gardening leave.

That does flatter you though.

The five wins on paper look excellent but you were incredibly fortunate to meet those teams at a time when they were struggling with form, injuries, Europe.
Well palace have injuries as well. And were struggling with form as well.
1st choice keeper. Johnson
1st choice centre back. Guehi
Both 1st choice midfielders, Lerma and Doucoure

Obviously losing Deocoure ment we signed Wharton who has turned out a proper star

I doubt he does, as Bayern are a basket case right now.
But seeing as Beaky rates him at $100m , I would suggest his agent should use this as an opportunity, to renegotiate a contract extension, before the rest of the Prem work out how to play against Palace next season.

We deluded ourselves too, during our decent streak.

Enjoy this moment., it won't last, it never does.
All part of being a football fan.

Alternatively maybe you need to get some perspective.

For two seasons you haven't been close to being in our league; and this season that is with us having ten games in Europe to contend with, going 2 rounds further in the FAC and starting our League Cup campaign the day after you'd been knocked out. We also took four points off you for the second season running and you haven't beaten us since Feb '21.

This season we got decimated by injuries. Three or four other clubs suffered as badly as we did, Palace weren't one of them.

Now of course you're winning games against teams on the beach. Fair enough - 3 points is 3 points - but if this was a horse race, we are in the final furlong and you'd be the 33/1 rag that is now passing beaten contenders who really threatened to hit the frame for three quarters of the race.
