Squad Imbalance
#1
Overloaded with Central Midfielders.
Plenty of Centre backs

But a serious lack of full-backs and wide midfielders.

We heard a lot about needing a Striker and a Right-Back in the window, but what about Left-Midfield? Only Schlupp is a natural there.

It does seem bizarre how we can't ever seem to get a balanced squad with 2 players fighting for each position.  It's almost like there is no plan at all.  It's very old school Palace actually, where chaos reigned for years.

Thats true.

We don't sell players, they sort of fade away - McCarthy, Williams, Dann. Soare, Wickham.

Its even more bizarre when you think we lost a LB (Soare) and a striker (Sorloth) in the window.

I'd like to think that maybe the club know what they are doing and know football better than us. Then I remember this is the only club to go into admin twice, and a club that got its numbers mixed up a few years back and accidentally had too many new signings for the squad.

Yeah, the fear of him walking away on a free worked for him there.  Player power.
