'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Short Recap Of Fans' Forum

A brief recap of the topics covered in tonight's end of season Fans' Forum.

No doubt there will be plenty of coverage tomorrow, with fullsome quotes of the most salient questions and answers from tonight's event, but here's a brief taste of the topics covered from Palace's text coverage - follow the link to see the full text coverage from the club.

-----

'We're still Palace fans before we are owners.' Stephen Browett.

-----

There was some confusion on the text commentary as it was suggested we were signing Lionel Messi.

'I haven't seen him at Beckenham and I think he's got a long term contract somewhere or other!'

:-)

-----

'What I want to do is make sure Dougie's career gets off to a good start and making sure he builds on that. I see Dougie not just as a manager, as a leader.' Lennie Lawrence.

-----

On new transfers:

'We are far down the line with 1 or 2. I wouldn't speak about other club's players but we are close with some I think will be exciting.' Dougie Freedman.

-----

On the financials:

'Very difficult to run the club as a business. Football is designed around people putting money into clubs. 1.2bn of debt in the football league, you have to decide what you want the club to be. What we want is stability. On a break even wage budget you're lucky to avoid relegation so we will have to put money in.' Steve Parish.

'We run our businesses to make a profit but we probably won't manage that at Palace. We will keep things under control. We will support the manager but won't do anything to risk the club again.' Stephen Browett.

-----

On Crystal Palace Park:

'We have meetings set up, it's about 1m to do all the planning, there's a lot of work to do. If we can't, we have alternatives, but I think that's (Crystal Palace Park) the best home for the club.' Steve Parish.

-----

On the Reserves:

'We decided to pull out because the competition wasn't up to a standard that I believe is strong enough for our players. Our young players need to be tested, we play three development games a month against the Chelseas, Arsenals that I believe the youngsters will benefit from in the long run.' Dougie Freedman.
