    League Position

    7th. A cup would be nice but I think City will be trying to collect them all again.

    Transfer Rumour Zaha with poll

    Zaha is a very good player but not worth the £100m that I think Moshiri is willing to pay to make a statement.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Clearly, Palace are annoyed that the club ignored the £80m price and may have offered players rather than cash upfront. (And I hope this isn't because of a desire of Moshiri to make a statement otherwise, there might be a £100m bid.)

    Predictions for the forthcoming season ?

    Sixth or seventh.

    2018/19 Marco Silva - New Poll Added

    Yes! Absolutely. We need good runs in the Europa League to improve our poor European Coefficient which we share with the likes of West Ham, Burnley, Southampton and the like. Look in the mid eighties at https://www.uefa.com/memberassociations/uefarankings/club/#/yr/2019

    New Stadium Discussion

    I like both the brick base and the modern top for the stands but I am not keen on the combination of the Victorian and modern. Still, a new stadium ... not to be sniffed at! (Also, I am not mobile enough to get there, so if those who can go are happy, then fine.)

    @Mrtallywacker . That was not what @radiostar posted. I thought that it was courteous to indicate when another's post was edited. Or am I old-fashioned?

    AS Monaco v Everton (Friday 19 July 17:00)

    Yes! And even worse for my tenuous grasp of reality, we are wrong about Hugh, Pugh etc. According to Wiki, they are the Pugh twins, so it's Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew... Good win last night. Builds confidence.

    Well, since it would involve a public inquiry, and a possible appeal, I have no idea. Sorry.

    Is it dodgy, people ask. Well, I can't judge that but USM Holdings has three people on the board: Usmanov, Streshinsky and Moshiri who is the Chair of the Board. https://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/people.asp?privcapId=225656176 Usmanov has been moving companies out of the reach...

    A playoff, I think.

    @Davideeyore I agree about the Lucas Oil Stadium, but in blue engineering brick!

    New Stadium Discussion

    As the site has WHS, by definition it is of national significance. Consequently, and in view of the extensive critism of the council's management of the site by UNESCO, it will be called in by the minister for review by the Planning Inspectorate. Just to be certain.

    Sky has it better phrased. https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/11763815/premier-league-introduces-head-to-head-record-between-teams-in-bid-to-avoid-play-off

    I thought it was Hugh, Pugh, Barney, McGrew
