  8. I love the 4-2-2-2 formation, used it for a while. Albeit slighty different tactics and roles to yourself. Fantastic results wiht Rotherham there kutgw.
  9. Apparently we may be buying Vaughan so we have him to look forward to in the next patch. Sort of
  10. Fantastic as always Gav, liking the new format.

The team plays its home matches at Selhurst Park, where they have been based since 1924. The club currently competes in the Npower Championship. A Brief History of Crystal Palace F.C. Crystal Palace was formed in 1905 by workers at The Crystal Palace. They did not reach the top division of English Football until 1969-70, and did not reach a major final until 1990. Relegated from the top division in 1973 and once again in the following season leaving the club playing in the third tier of English football for the 1974-75 season, before being promoted back to the top level by 1979-80. Crystal Palace's most recent successful period began in 1988-89, when the club finished third in the Second Division and was promoted to the First Division. They reached the 1990 FA Cup Final only to lose the replay against Manchester United, and finished 3rd in the First Division in 1990-91. Palace was a founding member of the FA Premier League (1992-93) but was relegated that season. Since then Palace has been relegated from and promoted to the FA Premier League on a number of occasions. Their most recent relegation from the top flight was in the 2004-05 season. The club has twice gone into administration, first in 1998, which ended in 2000 with the purchase by Simon Jordan. His tenure also ended with administration in 2010, leading to a takeover by the CPFC 2010 consortium led by Steve Parish, owner of marketing agency Tag Worldwide.

Your squad is definitely in for a relegation battle or at best a comfortable bottom half finish. With some heavy strengthening you can easily finish mid-table/top half. With a major overhaul, the right tactics and some luck you could make the play-offs, but then again isn't this true of half of the Championship. Worse is that with the wage and transfer budget being as they are you're going to have to rely on free transfers and loans, selling deadwood and buying on the cheap is also the only other viable option but even then only expect a few low-key signings. Key Target: Strengthen most areas with free transfers and loans and add depth to just about all areas. Goalkeepers Having joined from Dundee 6 years ago for around 750k Julian Speroni is your undisputed number one. Especially as your only other two keepers are 19 year old Foderingham and 25 year old Price, both of whom would even look out of place in a league 2 reserve side. Speroni is a decent keeper who could keep his place in a lower prem side and you should get at least 2-3 years out of him before you need to replace him (Unless you achieve promotion and secure premier league status withing this time of course). You'll probably want to terminate Price or Woderinghams contracts or sell if you can as they're not going to help you in your game. Get rid of one asap (keeping one of them as 3rd choice) and find a decent back-up for Speroni, and in the next few seasons start searching for some youth prospects. Best for Position - Julian Speroni Youth Prospect - N/A Ideal Targets - Mahamadou Sidibe (Free), Tony Sylva (Free), Stuart Taylor (Man City - Loan) Rightbacks Fullbacks on the right side are sadly lacking in any substance, you have the pacey Clyne who has potential and would do as decent back-up. Wright is your other choice and in my opinion the better of the two. Though both are never going to set the world alight, he is a better rounded RB and is more physical than Clyne. Alex Marrow can also play at here but as he's a natural CM, and he's not much to look at there, I wouldn't be confident of playing him here. Though there isn't much between them and there are other parts of the team that need improving more desperately so it wouldn't be an awful idea to keep these two how they are. Ideally loan Clyne out for some experience, sign up a better RB and use Wright as back-up though this area isn't in vital need of a better RB. Best for Position - David Wright (For a more solid RB), Nathanial Clyne (For a pacier RB) Youth Prospect - Nathanial Clyne Ideal Targets - Mark Wilson (Celtic - Loan), Kenny Pavey (AIK - 60k), Abubakari Yakubu (Free), Kyle Walker (Tottenham - Loan) Leftbacks Best for Position - Julian Bennet Youth Prospect - Lee Hills Ideal Targets - Michael Ball (Free), Sylvinho (Free), Leandro Grimi (Sporting CP - Loan), Timothy Atouba (Ajax - Loan) Centrebacks Best for Position - Youth Prospect - Ideal Targets - Right Midfield Best for Position - Youth Prospect - Ideal Targets - Left Midfield Youth Prospect - Ideal Targets - Centre Midfield Best for Position - Youth Prospect - Ideal Targets - Strikers Best for Position - Youth Prospect - Ideal Targets -
