Bolasie seems a like for like replacement for Traore to be honest, so if there is any sort of "he's got to play" rule from his home club, maybe Boro are better placed to agree to that?

I think you're right - and we still need to replace Snoddy

Yeah Risso. It does seem to be taking a long time if as we are lead to believe we are looking to get 3 or 4 in

Itíll all happen in the last few days Iíd imagine, PL clubs will leave it as long as possible in case they pick up injuries.

Snoddy is a huge miss. I don't think it's any coincidence that his absence has come at the same as Albert's drop in form.  Loads of our play that lead to Albert's goals last season started down our left handside, allowing him to ghost in at the back post. He's much more effective doing that, or moving infield when someone like Grealish moves out-wide, than he is being asked to create something with the ball at his feet from a wide position.

I don't rate Bolasie at all, 1 good season for Palace but nothing else to suggest he's anything more than average. Without his pace he'd never have made it as a professional.

his final ball is not that good.  Looks great until his final ball , I thought Penis had got him.

I tend to agree, but I'd be worried if players are turning us down in order to sign for Boro.  There are a few rumours on Twitter that Matt Targett may be about to do the same...

Alberts loss of form goes back a long time before Snody left.

Do you really think we're not attracting players that are going to play for Pulis because of the style of our play?

Or perhaps it's because Bolasie played for Pulis before and would like to again.

It would be great if we get Targett. If he chooses Boro over us like it seems Bolasie has then i'll be very worried.

Bolasie is shit. Maybe we aren't in for him. If we wanted Bolasie, we would get him.
