Mistakes of the past

Katrien Meire has told us that she is running the shop over-budget. That was what prevented us from signing anyone else before the window closed. Disappointing to hear that Roland is not prepared to gamble but I suspect most would be satisfied knowing we are being sensible in terms of how the club is being administered and that they would rather this than find ourselves in tricky financial waters in years to come because we have lived beyond our means. A gamble could also reasonably involve having to sell a Johann Berg Gudmundson in the January window to balance the books if it didn't look like paying off.

To apply salt to the graze, Steuea Bucharest have seen enough of George Tucudean and have cancelled his contract meaning he will be queueing at immigration en route to Sparrows Lane. 

News too, that Franck Moussa (remember him?) is finally fit again and played an U21 game yesterday. Hopefully we will be able to trim the wage bill by loaning the likes of Tucudean and Moussa as neither passed the Championship quality test first time around. 

I hope Tony Watt, Igor Vetokele and Chris Solly are all resting up well and will be fighting fit for the next two home games as we need to put some points on the board to maintain our positive start to the season.

Good to see us sell out so quickly for Selhurst Park. It's a 'free hit' match and as long as we are competitive it should be a good occasion for the 3000 visiting fans. I am looking forward to it...
