    He is an excellent player, there cannot be any question about that.

    He must be terribly advised though. If he really does want a move to a bigger team then why on earth does his agent keep on advising him to sign new contracts? Had he not signed his new deal last year then he would probably have his pick of 3 or 4 of the top 6 clubs right now with the transfer fee demanded by Palace reducing by the day.

    Badly advised? Or just chased the money?

    I do wonder what would have happened re Poch if he had been signed in Summer 2016 instead of NKoudou and, later, Moura...

    Not any more I think.
    Can't see Ancelloti going for Wilf considering who he's already bought.

    Badly advised. The money would've arrived anyway by means of transfer to a bigger club.

    Yeah, but who knows if he would have faced a career-threatening injury before that point? You say more than most about how the career of a footballer is a short one and that security plays on their mind big time when signing any contracts. In this case, it could be argued that his agent did his job (plus if he really trusted his career trajectory, he'd not have signed the contracts offered by Palace and instead run his contract down to make himself more available to bigger clubs when it was nearly expired).
    I don't think he can absolved from whatever he's done: it's not like he had a gun to his head to sign...

    I think he is a quality player
    I also think if palace get in the lad from Pool they will have done some amazing business and will fund it by selling him

    Zaha isn't as good as his hype

    He has these little purple patches but he isn't anywhere near consistent enough.

    We don't need him

    That is a kind overview .. most of us agree

    He's too important for Palace, and not good enough for anyone/club sane to overpay for

    Could not agree more, IF he spent more time trying to improve his game instead of arguing with opposing players and refs and hitting the deck he MAY be a player. For me though he is vastly overated by some.
