At least 10 of their top players are trying to seal deals ASAP like Nilmar (on the verge of going to the UAE for $$$'s rather than progressing his career), Rossi, Diego Lopez (already gone to Sevilla), Borja Valero, Zapata.....
They will never be the same for years.
Yeah, I know it could be worse. Thanks for trying to cheer me up though.
Still, right now this off season feels like the beginning of some bad times. Coming out of administration, it seemed like Palace and their new owners might be moving forward. Now, we've lost Ambrose, Scannell, Clyne and Gardner -- although Gardner isn't a huge loss, especially compared with those first three names. There has also been so few new names coming in with nobody looking like they can replace those gone. To top it all off, Dougie Freedman has said in a few interviews that this year the team is going to have to rely on the younger players coming out of Palace's academy.
Don't get me wrong, I'm still hopeful that they're going to pull out some more signing and that things will look better by the time the season starts. However, right now things aren't looking so pretty.
