    Cody McDonald to Crystal Palace tomorrow

    [quote user="Desert Fox"]

    Wharfiside,

     

    Thanks for the update. Given that we have decided to sell, we need the biggest price and this is most likley to be achieved through an auction as clubs panic as the deadline approaches. Of the bigger clubs that have soem cash to spend, I guess that Cody is more likely to want to stay in teh South East, so both West Ham and the binners may be attractive to him - although I am not saying they are interested. All I am saying is that he doesnt necessarily have to sign for whoever gives us the best price and that his persoanl wishes will play a big part.

    [/quote]Sorry for the delay Desert Fox. Met for beers with my mate last night. The club in question was apparently Coventry (Not sure they are bigger than Palace personally but never mind). Regardless to what Freedman said in the press, he was very much interested in McDonald. He also mentioned that Freedman told him it was ''well known'' in the football league that Norwich are asking for a lot of cash and a whacking great big sell on fee that clubs just aren''t prepared to agree with. But apparently it is the board that are after this money not Paul Lambert himself.I feel sorry for the lad myself. I can understand why we are holding out for a big sell on fee, but asking for 550K is stupid given the length or his contract. We don''t want the boy and from the info I have got over the last week or so, it is us that are holding things up.

    The Cody saga will be over soon as there are only three weeks left until deadline day. However, I accept, that your explantion of the delay is plausible.

     

    Your originatinting post implied that you had connections at the Palace end of things, but as you are now saying that soemone bigger has come in, have you got this information from Palace too or from our end of things?

    [/quote]Yeah it all makes sense so I had no reason to not believe my friend. I''m afraid I don''t have another source apart from my friend who has ties with Palace. He might have heard from Freedman through the grapevine who the other ''bigger'' club is though as I''m sure word gets about.I''ve just e mailed my friend to see if he can find out

    Frankie Dettori is probably bigger than Cody - could you narrow it down a bit?

    [/quote]Ha ha there probably isn''t much in it. I will ask and see if I can find out. Either way the Cody saga looks like it will be over soon

    I work with a chap in London who is friends with Dougie Freedman. He has mentioned today that Norwich have agreed a deal with Palace for McDonald. Didn''t say how much the deal was for but should go through today or tomorrow. I''ve had a few corporate tickets for Palace games and have met Freedman (Though my friend) so I''m guessing this is true.Good luck Cody

    Cody told to find another club!

    [quote user="Better Wizard"]Lol joanna bit. Ha i''m glad codys off hopefully will shut up a few on this board who seem to have some sort of bizarre obsession with him. I was being ironic to spell it out to you simpletons.[/quote]New to the forum (How many Cody posts by the way). Lambert obviously doesn''t consider Cody good enough for Prem standard and thats good enough for me. The ''I''m glad Cody is off'' stuff is harsh. I agree in that the prem has come to soon for him, but the guy has run himself into the ground everytime he has worn the shirt. He scored a few important goals and I for one enjoyed watching him in the brief spell he has had with us. He has been unfortunate we as a club under Lambert has progressed so quickly. Good luck where ever you end up Cody lad

    Jed Steer

    Seems to be a very good prospect. A loan deal suits both parties at this stage. I remember the young lad who is now Arsenal number one playing at Carrow Road for Brentford. Loan seemed to do him the world of good. I thought we were going to have to shoot him to score at one stage
  9. First post so go easy. But I can''t help but think we could do with an experienced centre half in that list (Probably been mentioned a few times no doubt already)
