About Me

Old Coulsdon, United Kingdom
An acquired refugee from the days of exile at Selhurst Park, my first game being a dreary 1-1 draw with Millwall. I followed the team back to The Valley, and have now been with them for over twenty years. You will find me in the Rose of Denmark or in the Lower West. Follow me on Twitter @DeepestDarkest1

Do you think Wikipedia could be the new way to start loan move and transfer gossip? as I reckon Wiki almost beat Sky Sports to the news


Yet again, the move is only for a month, and just as with Graeme Murty, I don't agree with it. When are we going to learn that this short term speculate to accumulate thinking is very rarely ever productive. The lack of loanees in the team that won at Norwich should really tell us something shouldn't it?

Speaking of which, the decision to let McLeod go on loan to the Spanners for the rest of the season is a good one. He can rejoin us if we slip into tier three, and he has shown himself capable of scoring goals at that level. With Eastwood also out on loan, and Dickson looking to go as well, Pardew's record in the speculation game is a big fat zero so far. With Gray also being linked with a move, even Pardew's apparent star performers aren't er.... performing. The inclusion of Gray in the team, is a habit the club really should break, but please don't bring in a striker for a month, it will almost certainly end up in tears....ours.

As for the Norwich game, well done to the lads, but it will only mean something if it gives the team confidence to beat Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday. A return to our more usual performance there, and the FA Cup becomes an even more unnecessary distraction.
