Which attacker are you prepared to swap for him

eriksen alli son lamela moura
Don't forget winks can play on 10 as well

Wouldn't swap anyone for him


Some on here wont dispute any decision made by poch or levy which shows lack of a personal opinion.....! they just defend their decisions and go with the flow......!

Pochettino outed townsend over one outburst with his trainer (of all things)

Pochettino is of course not given to criticism of his subs during a game which are largely non effective in rescuing any game we are losing.

I have read articles where claims are made for pochettino being flexible on his formations and if you look how he lines his teams up over a season then there is plenty of truth in that claim.

If you believe the above then you should believe there was a place for such a player like townsend in pochs diversified line ups.
However i believe he would be most effective last 20-30 mins of a game when defenders are tiring and are pitted against someone with a bit of speed, trickery and with a good powerful shot as an end product.

If i had a choice of moura or lamela off the bench i would rather have townsend. :cheers:

I don't actually rate Zaha as much as most, so naturally I'm not to concerned about Townsend.


I have a mate who is Palace, he doesn't mind Townsend, but said his tracking back was suspect in his first few seasons. He and pretty much all the Palace fans can't stick Benteke, someone we were heavily rumoured to be in for.

So me saying I'd rather have our current squad players over townsend is a lack of personal opinion ? I don't say we can't improve and I think lamela should be sold and rotated for a new option , but Andros is not an option if you want to play top of PL and CL. Rather have a gamble and buy bergwijn from psv or sancho from Dortmund.
