Jordan owned Palace on his own. Parish had 3 co-owners then 2 American billionaire co-owners.

The winter window when when had Big Sam and we signed Luka, PvA, Schlupp and Sako on loan it is well known the 3 owners lent the club £40m. It's always compared to the season we went down under Dowie when we didn't buy in the winter window and how shite Jordan was because of that. Maybe, just maybe, Jordan couldn't afford to spend any money or maybe our deals fell through. Would we have survived under Big Sam is Parish couldn't have borrowed £22.6m from the two Americans?

All in all Jordan did his best. The ITV football deal fell though and all clubs got shafted and he was a one man owner. Parish has done well but he hasn't done it all alone.

In '05 we had Bod Dowie in charge of transfers...or rather...what was it again.... "getting bodies over the line"...we never stood a chance.

Mind you right now we have Freedman so not much better.
