Andre Moritz: Not in Ian Holloway's plans for next season

The midfielder's contract expired at the end of June, and he was keen to extend his one-year stay at Selhurst Park after helping Palace secure promotion to the Premier League last season.

But following talks with Holloway, the 27-year-old Brazilian was not offered a new deal and has now become a free agent.

"I sat down with the manager and told him what I wanted in terms of football. He said he didn't see me in his plans due to playing style conflict," Moritz wrote on his Twitter account.

"I appreciate his honesty and we decided to move on. At the age of 27, I'll need more game time.

"I wish everyone at the club success, I will miss the staff, fans and my heroic team-mates."

A statement on the Palace website read: "Moritz signed a one-year deal at Selhurst Park, which expired at the start of July - and the club have decided not to offer an extended deal to the player.

"Moritz made a total of 32 appearances for Palace last season, including coming on as a substitute against Watford in the Championship Play-Off Final at Wembley. He found the net on five occasions.

"Crystal Palace Football Club would like to place on record its sincere thanks to Andre for his service and commitment during the 2012/13 season. We wish him all the best for the future."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
