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

One Down

Moutaouakil has finally left the building. Where it seems to be a fairly wideheld belief that McLeod is on c£8k a week, I suspect our departed Frenchman would not have been a million miles behind. I wonder how much that "termination" of his contract cost the club?, because cost will almost certainly have been involved, unless they have managed to drum him out for some breach of contract, which I think is unlikely. My guess is that it will have cost c£250k to say goodbye.

What it does mean of course is that we have seen the first meaningful move toward restructuring the squad into a smaller, and less well paid thing. McLeod must be well and truly in the cross hairs now, as his salary, and attitude are every bit as untenable to the club as the departing Moutaouakil's would have been, if not more so. There is something seriously amiss with McLeod, when not only Parkinson, but Jackett at Millwall, and Gannon at Peterborough drop him like a hot stone. It is such a shame, as even McLeod would have been dangerous at third division level. It's all irrelevant of course, as we simply cannot afford to keep him.

As for the transfer rumours, well, they are just that. Parkinson has placed the inevitable "For Sale" card in the shop window by stating that there has been no expression of interest shown for Bailey, just as a whole plethora of clubs are cited as being interested in him - we shall see.

Here is an update to where the squad is now:-
