Palace style didnt suit Bostock

Palace style didnt suit Bostock

Heres another angle to the Bostock saga, according to the talented youngster Palace's style of play didnt suit him, also there was supposed to be a member of Palace staff telling Bostock that Neil Warnock had no plans for him as he couldnt play Neils kind of way, as if.

Palace fans are angry about the whole senario, they're saying he should of given Palace a taste of what he is about, at least a seasons worth, then move on if he didnt like what he saw.

Bostock told the Daily Mail 'I don't know if Palace fans will ever be able to understand why a genuine Palace supporter left the club, but I was frustrated with the way I was playing under the style of football at the club.



'When I made my debut against Watford, I was ready to commit my future to Palace and could see myself playing a hundred games in no time, but I was stagnating. I need to be at a club where I can continue my development.



'Tottenham have always shown a lot of interest and I believe I will be pushed to improve my game. In the youth team at Palace, it is too easy. Even though most of the players are two years older than me, it is not a challenge. In my last game for the club, against Watford (youth), I scored two and it was just too easy.



'I like Tottenham's playing style, I will be training with the first team and playing for the reserves in my first season. I could have gone to big clubs, like Chelsea or Barcelona, but Spurs offers me the best career progression. That is my belief.'

'I know people think I have left Palace for the money, but there is another side to this. I don't think about the money and it never played a part in my decision. People need to understand that I loved playing for Palace.


'I've had emails from supporters telling me they never want to see me at Selhurst Park again, but Palace are my team and that won't change. I've got great memories of the place and if I ever play there, I will go back with my head held high. Neil Warnock gave me my debut and I won't forget that.'

Palace are treating him really unfairly if you ask me, but yet he still has a place for you lot in his heart. Seems like a good character.

Sounds like just a big excuse to leave the club!

Actually not been that impressed by him when he has featured. Nowhere near as good yet as he thinks he is and given that he flew out to see Barca a few years back then well, is he really all that?

If he wants out get rid of him. Joining a so called bigger club will only mean he will keep the subs bench warm. If that's progress let him have it.
