Premier League transfer window grade: Crystal Palace

Leave a comment

Window Shopping: Tony Pulis spent two months looking at Ian Holloway’s knick-knacks and decided to clear the shelf, allowing 12 players to leave Crystal Palace by the end of the January window. Eight of those players will return in June, but for players like Kevin Phillips and Jimmy Kébé, the arrival of a new boss has meant playing time must be found elsewhere. Kébé will spend the next month searching for it through the growing muck at Leeds United, while Phillips has pulled what we like to call ‘The Kevin Phillips’ – dropping down to the Championship by joining Leicester City.

Arriving at Selhurst is a diverse collection of talent parts that should allow Pulis to craft a spot in next season’s Premier League. Tom Ince is the headliner, with the celebrated attacking midfield prospect electing to move on loan from Blackpool. Jason Puncheon provides some added scoring punch. Scott Dann may be able to rekindle his former Premier League self under Pulis, while Joe Ledley’s move away from Celtic provides another reminder of how far the Scottish league has fallen.

Even after Sunday’s loss to Arsenal, Palace is out of the drop, but there are enough parts here to provide Pulis with some needed options as he tries to avoid his first relegation. From attack to midfield, defense to goal (with former Wolves’ keeper Wayne Hennessey), Palace has bolstered. At worst, there’s now enough depth to preclude one or two injuries from derailing their survival hopes.

Players In: Jason Banton (MK Dons, return from loan), Wayne Hennessey (Wolverhampton, undisclosed), Scott Dann (Blackburn, undisclosed), Joe Ledley (Celtic, undisclosed), Jason Puncheon (Southampton, undisclosed), Tom Ince (Blackpool, loan)

Players Out: Jerome Williams (Forest Green, loan), Jason Banton (Plymouth, undisclosed), Jimmy Kébé (Leeds, loan), Alex Wynter (Sutton United, loan), Ryan Inniss (Luton, loan), Kevin Phillips (Leicester City, free), Matthew Parsons (Plymouth, undisclosed), Kwesi Appiah (Notts County, loan), Jack Hunt (Barnsley, loan), Florian Marange (Sochaux, free), Stephen Dobbie (Blackpool, loan), Jose Angel Campaña (Nürnberg, loan)

RECAP: All the deals on deadline day

Grade: B

If the new Eagles’ boss entered January hoping to make room and bolster, he accomplished both. Finding homes for 12 players, four leaving on permanent moves, Pulis has done his spring cleaning in winter, with the players being brought in all looking like useful parts.

In that way, this wasn’t just shuffling the deck. In Ince and Ledley, Pulis brought in the type of players he didn’t have at his disposal. There’s an upside to Dann that could make him a value buy (assuming that undisclosed fee is reasonably low). Puncheon provides the goals that Cameron Jerome has been unable to find, while Hennessey gives the team depth should anything happen to Julian Speroni.

It wasn’t spectacular, but Crystal Palace’s January window was eminently solid. It was the Tony Pulis of transfer windows.

 

Premier League Preview: Tottenham v. Crystal Palace

Leave a comment
  • Tottenham have scored nine goals in four league games under Tim Sherwood; the same number that they scored in the last 10 games under Andre Villas-Boas.
  • Crystal Palace are unbeaten in four previous Barclays Premier League games at White Hart Lane (W1 D3).
  • Since Tony Pulis has taken over, Palace have conceded just eight goals in eight league games (three clean sheets). They conceded 21 in the first 12 of the season (two clean sheets).

Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood will have his four match unbeaten record tested when Crystal Palace visit White Hart Lane on Saturday (Watch live on NBCSN at 10am ET, online via NBC Sports Live Extra).

Spurs have looked a new club since the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas following the 0-5 home loss to Liverpool on December 15th. Chairman Daniel Levy is looking quite shrewd in his decision to hand the managerial reins to Sherwood, who has instilled his side with a new found sense of expression.

Under AVB, Tottenham was an overly-coached squad that was too preoccupied with complex tactics that the player’s lost their sense of freedom and creativity. Under the guise of Sherwood however, Spurs have adopted a laissez-faire attitude that’s bringing out the best in the players.

After going to Southampton and winning 3-2 on December 22nd, Spurs returned home to salvage a tough 1-1 draw with West Brom. They found their feet again in the 3-0 blitz of Stoke City before earning a profound 2-1 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

With all the talent in the world, Sherwood’s loose system was exactly the tonic Spurs needed to get back on track. In time, more purposeful play will need to be installed but for now Spurs are simply enjoying their football. Part of that enjoyment, of course, involves beating clubs who you should beat. Prime example – Crystal Palace.

The Eagles have improved dramatically under Tony Pulis and are no longer the Premier League’s whipping boys (that honor is firmly in West Ham’s hands). Sitting in 18th place one point shy of safety, a win on Saturday could see the South London club move out of the relegation zone and leapfrog Fulham and Cardiff.

One of Palace’s keys to success under Pulis has been their improved away form – they’ve now have won three in six on their travels after losing the previous six in a row. Adding to the uplift, of the Eagles’ three away losses in that run, two have been to Manchester City and Chelsea.

Injuries could play a role in Saturday’s outcome with Spurs having a laundry list of players on the trainer’s table. In the defense, Jan Vertonghen (ankle) and Younes Kaboul (thigh) are long term absentees while Kyle Naughton (hamstring) is also out. In the midfield, Sandro (calf), Lewis Holtby (knee), Andros Townsend (hamstring) are all possibilities to return while Gylfi Sigurdsson (calf) is doubtful. Up front, Jermain Defoe (hamstring) will be a late fitness test while Roberto Soldado (calf) is a doubt.

Palace enter the match in much better health with Jerome Thomas (groin), Jack Hunt (ankle), Adlene Guedioura (rib), Glenn Murray (knee) all deemed out.

What They’re Saying

Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen: “We’ll probably have the ball more, but we just have to use the ball well against what could be a defensive team. Every game is difficult but I believe we can maintain our good run of form in the league and pick up another win.”

Palace manager Tony Pulis: “Watching the team win away from home gives you confidence because although you need to win your home games, we have the same amount of away games coming up. To be able to go into those games knowing that you can get points away from home is important.”

Prediction

With Tottenham’s rash of injuries, this is no lollypop match. I expect Spurs to win but think this will be a tight affair with only a goal separating the sides.

Watch Live: Crystal Palace vs. Norwich City (Lineups and Discuss)

Leave a comment

Crystal Palace responded to Tony Pulis’s appointment early on, but have been slowed by three defeats in their last four.

Still, they remain just above the drop thanks to Fulham’s horrific goal differential, and will host Norwich City at Selhurst Park at 10am ET live online at NBC Sports Live Extra.

A win would ensure they remain out of the relegation zone, something that remains of utmost importance.

Pulis has decided to pair Marouane Chamakh and Cameron Jerome up front following their failure to score against Manchester City.  That means sacrificing Barry Bannan in the midfield.

Part of that decision was due to the absence of a number of players with injuries, including Jack Hunt, Glenn Murray, Jerome Thomas and Adlene Guédioura.

Premier League Preview: Crystal Palace v. Arsenal

1 Comment
  • Crystal Palace have won just five points and scored five goals in their previous eight Premier League meetings with Arsenal.
  • Since their opening day defeat to Aston Villa, Arsenal have won 19 of a possible 21 points in the Premier League.
  • Crystal Palace have now lost five successive Premier League games. They haven’t lost six in a row in league competition since March 2001.

Crystal Palace welcome Arsenal to Selhurst Park this Saturday (7:45 am ET on NBCSN, watch live via NBC Sports Live Extra) for a clash of two clubs at opposite sides of the table with the Eagles in 19th place and the Gunners league leaders.

Saturday will mark Palace’s first top-fight match without Ian Holloway this season after the 50 year old manager left the club on mutual consent on Wednesday. Holloway’s assistant Keith Millen will deputize until co-chairman Steve Parish finds a suitable replacement. With just three points in the opening eight Premier League fixtures, avoiding relegation will be an uphill battle.

Losers of their last five matches, Palace will be desperate for points on Saturday. After dropping three straight matches by a 2-0 margin (Manchester United, Southampton and Swansea City), the Eagles were stung by Liverpool 3-1 before being thrashed 4-1 by a stumbling Fulham side on Monday evening.

How, exactly, Millen plans on turning things around remains to be seen. Fortunately for the former Bristol City manager he will have a relatively healthy squad at his disposal with long-term absentees Glenn Murray, Jack Hunt and Jonathan Williams the only losses and center-back Patrick McCarthy set to return from groin injury.

Hoping for a miracle may by Millen’s best bet, especially when considering Palace have taken only five points from their previous eight Premier League matches against Arsenal. The Gunners are coming off fine form in the league, unbeaten in their last seven having only drawn once during that time. Last weekend Arsene Wenger’s side put on what was their best display of the season, slicing up the Norwich City defense for four goals.

The good times at the Emirates came to a brief pause on Tuesday when Robert Lewandowski scored a late goal to hand Borussia Dortmund a 2-1 victory in the Champions League. The Gunners were unlucky to escape that match without a point and will be looking forward to bouncing back with a solid hammering.

Wenger will continue to be without long term absentees Lukas Podolski, Yaya Sanogo, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby. Jack Wilshere may also be rested after taking a knock to his ankle against Dortmund while Mathieu Flamini should have a clear bill of health to return from concussion.

What They’re Saying

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud (on the Dortmund result): “We lost but have won almost every game. Just Villa and West Brom [were not victories] so it’s not the time to be really worried, but we want to come back on Saturday and win the game.”

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla: “Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky or myself are not sticking strictly to the touchline. Therefore we open up spaces so our full backs have a corridor where they can go up and down. Our ball possessions are long but they can break through by surprise. That’s why full backs are really important for our team. You can see that every game.”

Crystal Palace former manager Ian Holloway:  “I hold myself and Steve responsible. I didn’t value enough the spirit of the group that helped us get to the Premier League. I’ve lost the spirit of that group. I owe it to the lads to admit that. I could never work any harder than I have done. And this man (Parish) knows that.”

Prediction

It’s not a matter of who will win (Arsenal, obviously) but by how much. If it were any other top club facing Palace, I’d say we’re looking at a score of five or six nil. But knowing Wenger, this is a match where he’ll play a number of his youngsters and hand rests to veterans, meaning the score difference will only be a few goals.

Expect guys like Serge Gnabry and Carl Jenkinson to feature, as well as possible appearances by Ryo Miyaichi and Emmanuel Frimpong. My dark-horse call on this one, however, is that Gedion Zelalem (pictured) – the 16 year old phenom who spent time playing for the Washington, D.C. area based club Olney Rangers before being scooped up by Wenger – will get his first call in the league.
