Trouble is, so often these "out of contract" players are weeks away from being match fit because theyve not done any pre-season. I agree re Ledley though, no pace but has a lot of energy and only 30. Played 21 times for Palace last season...so about our level if we've been chucked of Waitrose and are now scrabbling around in the aisle where they put all the cheap junk in Aldi.

Still edible. Just give it a good wipe and rinse under the tap. Am sure we could manufacture a meal out of it somehow. The expiry date is today though. Never had a pudding for dinner since uni days but still, 23p for tonight's meal...that is a steal!

Flamini and Ledley were both poor for Palace last season which is why they were released.

Cannot see the point of signing either.

Whenever Mrs CRS drags me to Ikea at Thurrock she always insisits on having a look round the Bargain Basement section they have near the tills and every time she comes away with nada. It's full of ****, like the list of out of contract players.

Is this the next level we were promised? Rummaging around in the dustbins?

Flamini is finished.

If Sagna wanted a club and was fit he'd have one already. I'd take him but it would be throwing money away unless he's already fit.

Ledley is a poor man's Noble.

Kirchoff is the only one I'd be interested in but he will be injured until he's out of contract again.

Signing an amputee could be shown as making a statement deploring the discrimination against handicapped people.
Could well appeal to Sully and his spinners.

Flamini couldn't get into a bang average Palace team last season.

Plus he is more concerned about his corporate image at the moment as he is working with a green energy company and wants to get away from the footballer tag.

Never mind the age, do we really need another slow defender?

.
Sagna has kept himself fit and up for a new challenge but according to latest reports is favouring Sporting Lisbon (you couldn't write the script could you?) or Benfica.

Flamini and Ledley. I love this place sometimes. You want us to sign Crystal Palace's reserve midfield from a season when they were nearly relegated?

I'd take a punt on Cheick Diabate, but Giuseppe Rossi would be a dream. I know his body has never loved him, but I have always loved him as a player. Romantic dream of it working out.
