I think Frey looks good with link up play, it just doesn’t look like he gets many goals and i’m Not sure other players will score enough

Trust me Jake,Frey will get goals.....Assuming we get him

but a whole lot to do with pulis. britt for the majority was the only player in positions to score on a regular basis anyway.  saying he did well to score so many goals in a pulis team is also a pointless argument. in an attacking side the goals would be shared about more. not necessarily equaling more for britt.

he should have had a hat-trick on Friday night. but he missed a penna and a absolute sitter. he cost us 2 points. i'll be glad to see the back of him personally. 

Yet another person saying he should be a 1 shot to 1 goal striker, its a fantasy - every striker misses, it was the first game of the season and you are expecting what - perfection from every player?

back to the britt bashing now he's leaving. he was lucky to score at all but should have scored 3. hes a spud. crystal palace fans will be absolutely gutted when they see how bad he is first hand.

TBF I think the one positive we can say about our signings so far is that if they don't make it, at least we've not spunked tons of money bringing them in. And we won't be spending a whole lot more on wages either. They're the right kind of signings who could indeed be just as useless to us over time.

Yeah true, its certainly a more sensible approach which we've all being crying out for.

no i expect a striker to hit the target with a free shot from the penalty spot, i also expect a so called poacher to actually score from a one on one 6 yards out.

What's this other chance that Britt apparently missed? Genuinely don't remember it

The keeper made a good tackle on him when fletcher sent him through with the back heel.

If you look at their career stats, Britt scores or assists every 164 minutes in the Championship, for Frey if you just use his stats from the Europa League, Champions League and his time in France and Turkey scores or assists every 180 minutes. Obviously this figure improves even further if you include his time in the Swiss leagues. Think he'd be a good signing myself.

lets wait until he leaves, if he leaves before we start destroying him, because it worked well for Pulis to knock the lad.

 The top players in the world have skied a penalty or missed completely. Messi missed 4 yard headers in open goals before. Britt is one of best strikers in the league. He scores goals and thats exactly what hes there for

Bit of a bombshell here but even the best strikers miss chances

The one where Britt was travelling diagonally across the box away from goal?

    • I looked on Windows website and it gave me an iso file to download, I just assumed it would work off a flash drive haha
    • What do you mean by you installed the Win8 iso onto a flash drive? The iso is meant to be burned to a DVD-rom.  It should be an executable file for a flash drive.
    • In no particular order:   Juninho v Arsenal. Jan 2004. League cup semi final, first leg against the Invincibles. That was when I started feeling that this was our year. Maccarone v Basel. April 2006. UEFA Cup Quarters. 90th minute winner to take us through to Steau, where he did it again! Stuani v Brighton. May 2016. Championship. Stadium is bouncing, packed to the rafters, we only need a draw to gain promotion to the Premier League under Karanka. The party started at that moment and even a Brighton leveller couldn't dampen the mood!  
    • Update: I installed the Windows 8 iso on a flash drive and plugged it into the laptop to boot up, but it doesn't appear to be working. Still trying to boot up from the HDD instead and ignoring the USB.   I am still looking for a CD Boot up disc but I'm not even sure if that will work now 
    • God, I couldn't even pick just three.  Lots to choose from over the years, including some of the great choices selected above 👍 Hendrie's two against Luton, bye bye Ayresome but hello Premier League and The Riverside.  Ravanelli at Wembley 96/97, it looked like we were going to do it finally but then we didn't.  Festa, a whole week later, at Old Trafford against Chesterfield, when it looked like we'd avoided an absolute catastrophe only for history to repeat itself.  Rav's last minute penna winner against Villa at the beginning of the week of destiny.  The whole first 5 mins of the Liverpool League Cup semi final in 97/98.  The first few minutes of the second half against Oxford in the same season.  Festa's last minute equaliser at Southampton when we were down to 9 men for a 3-3 draw in the 98/99 season and Brian Deane's goal to put us 3-0 up at Man Utd a few weeks later - I think that was the last game Man Utd lost that season before winning the treble - "We're gonna win the league", well maybe not.  Boksic twice up at St James park against the Geordies a couple of seasons later.  01/02 season against Man Utd in the cup, hardly any bugger there because there was some argument about the ticket pricing and the fact that it was a lunchtime kick off on the telly, two goals in the last 5 mins to win it, hurrah!  We had some good times against Man Utd back then for whatever reason.  Speaking of which, the following season at home against them on Boxing day, all three goals were decent but the Job one at the end to clinch it because of the second or two it took for Maccarone to head the ball across to him was nice.  Same sort of reason but earlier in that season, against the Mackems at home and Nemeths second goal (our third) when he kind of ran through on his own to score in front of the North Stand - I think it was just the sense of anticipation really. 03/04 season in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff.  The first 6 or 7 mins as a whole but I was partly hysterical throughout the entire game really when I think about it.  It was ours to lose after that start and unfortunately we seemed to experts in finding ways to do just that up until that point.  Same season, scoring twice in injury time maybe to get a 3-3 draw at home against Leicester and another win at Old Trafford, Juninho scoring twice with his head! and Job getting the winner after Man Utd came back to level.  How did Man Utd win so much back then when we used to give them a going over on a regular basis?  Weird, football, isn't it?  04/05 season, not a goal but Schwarzer saving that penalty at Man City in injury time on the last day of the season to get us into Europe again has to be right up there.  The following season has to be the European goals already mentioned above, the games as a whole were mental but scoring late on to win not just once but twice is about as crazy as it gets.  Humping Man Utd (again) and Chelsea was also a lot of fun. After that point things got darker and those amazing moments never seemed to come around, at least not for me anyway.  There were always odd games or whatever but we were in decline and you could feel it.  We had some good games under Mowbray and obviously we were in the hunt a couple of times during seasons but we always fell away.  I think you're probably waiting until the 14/15 season for some more great moments - Leadbitter's freekick at Huddersfield was fantastic, Bamford's goal at Derby and the own goal at Norwich, the play off games against Brentford.  I stopped going away from home by this point though so most of those weren't experienced in the same way, the home play off game of course was though.  Following season, both games against Brighton had goals which got me going and against Derby over Xmas with the two goals in two minutes.  Nugent against Hull and Forshaw against Reading, mental. Probably loads I've missed out as well.  I think I just enjoy us scoring goals in any circumstances 😀
