Has he only started doing this? Because I think he may literally now be unstoppable if he has - you cant really tackle him any other way apart from grabbing him! Still have dreams of him bouncing off whole teams as he tears up the pitch. I miss him so much!

You have some odd dreams 🙂

Neil Cox just appointed manager of Scunthorpe......hope he does better than the last local lad put in charge of his hometown club....

What is the general consensus of Neil Cox as a player here? Thought he was solid in Division 1 but struggled with the step up in the Premiership .

Must admit I'd completely forgotten about him.

Don't think he was the kind of player that really stuck in the memory. As you say, solid enough in the 2nd tier, but like a few of our lads at the time, struggled to cut it in the top flight.

Tough on some of the bigger clubs down there. Wonder whether a sliding cap based on revenue may have been a more ideal solution.

Still better than nothing though! Can see the Championship following suit for sure.

Sliding scale makes a lot more sense to me...say a maximum of 50-60% of a club's annual revenue.

Bigger clubs that draw larger crowds, ticket & merch sales etc. and better sponsorship, should be allowed to spend more.

Just not to the point where they risk putting the club out of business if they get relegated, or a financial crash, pandemic or other event outside their control impacts their income.

 Probably not footballing wise although didnt he give Ravanelli a black eye leading up to the FA Cup final. 

I do remember him scoring against Liverpool in my first game I went to at the Riverside which we won 2-1.

Palace's new kits for next season.

1. They're dreadful

2. Won't they clash with most other kits??

"Guys, we really need to decide on the colour scheme for our away and third choice kits, Puma said we've got an hour until the deadline"

Just seen them and thought exactly the same. What is the point in the 2nd and 3rd kit as it contains same colours as the home kit?

The actual explanation for Palace's kits is even stupider, the chairman says he saw these kits as concept kits by a Palace fan on instagram and told Puma to make it happen. Ghastly looking kits as well christ, it's a shame because Puma are one of the better kit makers in my opinion their stuff looks like it fits snug.

"I was immediately inspired when I saw the concept from a supporter who had shared designs on Instagram, with perfect synergy across all the kits for the upcoming season. Working closely with PUMA and our design team at Crystal Palace, we believed these were the designs we had to bring to life, and I’m proud to say we’ve done so.

"We haven’t produced a shared design across shirts since our memorable promotion season in 2012/13, and there is no better campaign to honour in our eighth consecutive season in the Premier League.

"I fully believe these kits are bold and eye-catching enough to captivate both current supporters and new ones – wherever they may be – and I look forward to seeing the team wear them throughout the upcoming Premier League campaign."

I think Cox looked OK next to Pearson and Festa...but when he was with Whyte, Whelan, Morris and Vickers, he got hung out to dry trying to cover for them and Kinder often looked like he was in a different team...the opposition...solid enough with decent support but not a stand out

That's not far off what is currently in place in League 1 and 2. Very simplified under the SCMP (which has now been voted out) in League 1 you can spend upto 60% of your turnover on wages. League 2 is 55%.

Man City really have made Real look average tonight. 

Been watching the Juve game, really entertaining.

    • I can’t agree that a striker would solve all our problems, it’s exactly that kind of thinking that has got us in this position back in 2017. What we need once and for all is footballers who can play in the attacking third and actually keep the ball up there and do stuff with it.  The likes of Jota, Gaston, watkins even *** ‘Chair’. THOSE are the style of players we need to bring in, not more strikers. Watching Brighton today was depressing, their interplay around utds area was great to watch, it was inventive and full of movement. I’m sick of seeing and saying the same thing about how we attack, how predictable and laboured it is. The reason it’s that way is our attacking players just haven’t got the technical ability. We are full of runners and crossers and hoofers, putting hopeful balls into areas. We generally scrap goals or punish opposition mistakes and we will NEVER score any meaningful amount without a decent pattern to our attack.
    • im obviously not suggesting that theres players with 100% conversion rate who scores every time,  i do however believe that there are plenty of strikers that will finish more often than not from 6 yards out like the two birtt britt chances today.
    • Marcus Maddison posted the below on Instagram today. We know Warnock likes a gamble with the likes of Taraabt and El Hadj Diouf. He could be just the person Marcus needs in his life to turn it around and be our outlet. marcusmaddison11 27 today 🥳 but can’t mask the fact that this year has been the worst of my life. No goals achieved, my best friend died 🐕😭, love life non existent ☠️ & now Jobless 🤷🏼‍♂️. So happy birthday To myself & knowing next year can’t be any worse surely 🤔🤨 #mm11 #birthday #inspire #life#job #dad #dog  
    • The thing is we need wingers who create 20 chances a game like Leeds United did for Bamford and co last season 😄. As we currently only create 1 chance if ya lucky per game. 
    • This match showed what we all know is we need to sign some left Wingbacks or actual wingers. As we were better than QPR in every department but the wings that they exposed us on.
