  1. Should Palace break payscale again to keep Zaha?published at 17:01 20 September

    With only six fixtures played, against challenging opponents, the direction of Crystal Palace's season is still unclear - but the issue of Wilfried Zaha's future looms on the horizon.

    Zaha has always been more valuable to Crystal Palace than he may be priced at elsewhere, which is why despite that talent, he has never been successfully lured away from the club for a second time.

    Lucrative contract extensions put him on par with some of the highest-earning players in the league, intending to price out a lot of would-be suitors.

    Now the veteran in a youthful squad, he has never been surrounded by such talent. Yet, Zaha's part in the story is less certain, with a season left on his deal.

    Any player owes it to themselves to test the market to establish their top price or to secure European ambitions - but Palace hold their own, to eventually switch mid-table for European competition.

    He has changed his approach physically but shows little signs of slowing down as he approaches his 30th birthday, making him an asset to whoever acquires him.

    The club broke their payscale once to retain their talisman against the odds. Should they do the same now, whatever the cost?

  2. Guehi retains place in England squadpublished at 14:03 15 September

    Crystal Palace centre-back Marc Guehi remains cemented in Gareth Southgate's plans after the England boss named his last squad before finalising his selections for the World Cup in Qatar.

    First called up in the summer, Guehi has continued to impress at Selhurst Park and will now get the chance to add to his three caps in the forthcoming fixtures with Italy and Germany.

    Team-mate Tyrick Mitchell and former on-loan midfielder Conor Gallagher miss out on selection.

    England are currently bottom of Nations League Group D1 after four games and in danger of being relegated to the second division of the competition.

  3. Premier League clubs await announcement as football restartspublished at 09:56 12 September

    The Premier League is yet to make an announcement about the games to be played between 16 and 18 September, but football in the National League will restart on Monday.

    All English, Welsh and Northern Irish football, and senior Scottish football, was postponed over the weekend as a mark of respect following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

    Some matches could be affected by a lack of resources such as policing, but issues will be reviewed on a game-by-game basis.

    Policing games could be a factor in the decision if forces are redeployed to London before the Queen's funeral on 19 September.

    There are currently three matches scheduled to take place in the capital. Tottenham play Leicester on Saturday evening, while Brentford face Arsenal and Chelsea are at home to Liverpool on Sunday.

    A spokesperson for the National Police Chiefs Council said: "UK Policing is working closely with other organisations to ensure events are held safely and with the appropriate security.

    "Following the decisions of the Premier League and English Football League to cancel this weekend's matches, we will work with football clubs to try to ensure that, where possible, football fixtures can take place safely when balanced against the requirement to support national events and deliver day-to-day policing.

    "This is a unique situation and we are working closely with everyone involved."

  4. Guaita defiance lost in VAR carnagepublished at 13:04 6 September

    Two key factors prevented Newcastle United from securing victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

    VAR discussions have dominated post-match analysis, but these have detracted from a defiant performance from Vicente Guaita.

    Newcastle's barrage of corners, double what Palace have faced in a single match this season, was successfully negotiated, all en route to the team's first clean sheet, even with the VAR asterisk.

    The early one-on-one save against Alexander Isak set the tone and highlighted Guaita's strength in his time at the club, quickly resetting his feet to close down the centre-forward.

    Sam Johnstone's arrival on a free transfer from West Brom positioned him as the heir-apparent to the number one spot, with a possibility of taking the starting role within the season. Guaita's performance on Saturday makes that less of a foregone conclusion.

    Competition often helps drive greater performances and Palace naturally will hope that is the outcome, regardless of who takes the gloves. Guaita has already added himself into the conversation alongside the three great goalkeepers of Crystal Palace's past - John Jackson, Nigel Martyn and Julian Speroni.

    Now heading into the final year of his contract, he will be battling on to continue his Premier League journey.

  6. 'It’s impossible to be perfect' - Owens on what needs to be done about VARpublished at 09:34 6 September

    Ex-international rugby union referee Nigel Owens says one of the key issues with VAR in the Premier League is the lack of communication from referees and the fact that the final decision should be made by the on-field official.

    After a weekend of VAR controversy, much has been said about what football can learn from rugby's television match official (TMO).

    Owens told BBC Radio 5 Live's Monday Night Club: "Trying to get a perfect game is impossible.

    "What happens then is that perfect becomes the enemy of the good. What you want is to make good decisions, get the big decisions right. You are not going to go through life without making an error. You are not going to play a game of football, a manager is not going to pick a team without making an error in tactics. An official is not going to referee a game without making an error.

    "But what you want is to get those big decisions right. At the moment, what people are expecting - or maybe what people have been told - is that we are going to be perfect. It’s impossible to be perfect, so don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

    "If you put 10 pundits in a room, they are not all going to agree on a decision. If you put 10 referees in a room, they will all have different views on why they gave that decision.

    "You also then have the best match official on the field, so the final say should be with them. When they go to that monitor and look at something, they are the ones who should be making the decision and nobody else.

    "The problem at the moment is you haven’t got VAR or the match official explaining to everybody that this is why I am making my decision. In rugby, referees are mic'd up. Can you have that working in football?"

  7. 'Palace have major problems in defence'published at 12:58 5 September

    We asked for your post-match reaction after Crystal Palace drew 0-0 with Newcastle.

    Here are some of your thoughts:

    Steve: Not sure if Palace are progressing or going backwards. One win in six, three draws. Would love to see Vieira play a more attacking style away from home. Might fail occasionally, but would reap the rewards more often than not. They have the players, so give it a go.

    Paul: I think we did fairly well in terms of our defence, and I believe Guaita was exceptional in goal. I disagree with the decision to start Mateta as I believe this season he has not been clinical or made many chances, I believe we should instead be starting Edouard, who almost scored a fantastic goal, and he creates many chances in games.

    KC: Palace have major problems in defence. The Newcastle game showed what other games have shown: once an aerial ball comes into the box, it seems there's a 50/50 chance the other side will score. Guehi would make a great Kyle Walker-type right-back, even better than Walker, but he doesn't have the height for a central defender. A big problem!

    Simon: We already demand too much from Zaha. He gets double teamed and we expect him to work miracles. The other players need to step up to his level. Sadly, we have an impotent strike force so Zaha needs to be up front, not out wide. Problem is we are using wingers in the centre of midfield covering up our squad deficiencies. Result of a poor window.

  9. Newcastle 0-0 Crystal Palace: Analysispublished at 19:32 3 September

    Alistair Magowan, BBC Sport

    Should Palace demand more from Zaha?

    Crystal Palace Wilfried Zaha is a mercurial talent and has scored 13 goals in 20 Premier League appearances in 2022, with only Tottenham's Harry Kane and Son Heung-min scoring more.

    But against Newcastle he was a frustrated figure on the left wing, barely getting out of first gear against a strong Newcastle defence. On the opposite wing, Jordan Ayew and Eberechi Eze showed a lot more energy. 

    Zaha is Palace's top scorer this season with four goals and came up against Kieran Trippier, who was ably helped by Miguel Almiron. 

    But it felt like a game where Zaha could and should have had more of an impact. He spent some of the first half moaning at his manager Patrick Vieira and team-mates as he struggled to get on the ball.

    Asked if he wanted more from his winger, Vieira told BBC Sport: "It's not about the individual. It's about the collective effect. We need to reflect on how we didn't play well enough to find him quicker.

    "At the same time, he has to accept that under pressure it's always difficult to find our front players."

    That may be true, but when he had the ball he did not cause Newcastle many problems either.

  10. Newcastle 0-0 Crystal Palace: What Vieira saidpublished at 18:25 3 September

    Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira, speaking to BBC Sport: "I think both goalkeepers were really good today. I believe Vicente's best game since I was here. We needed a big performance from him and we had it today. He is terrific and has the experience. We needed to defend well and we did that.

    "When you come here you know it will be difficult. We managed there dangerous players good and we had our chances. The keeper made good saves. If you look overall at the chances made a draw is a fair result.

    "Even in the last third, our decision making was not that good. We did not make the right decision and this is something we need to improve. But overall I am happy with the attitude."

    "You need to perform and be consistent. Looking at what we produce game after game. There is a lot to take form that. If we keep fighting for each other and having the right spirit we will score goals and win football matches.

    On Newcastle's disallowed goal: "Rightly so. It was a clear foul and if it wasn't the keeper gets the ball in his hands. The referee makes the right decision."
