Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish believes that his side will sign at least another three players in the summer transfer window.

The Selhurst Park club have already broken their transfer record this summer and their co-chairman says that their business is not yet finished.

Parish also accepts that this season will be a huge step up for the club, who have never enjoyed a Premier League campaign without being relegated.

"We are excited, and nervous. It's a massive step up, everybody knows that," Parish told Sky Sports News.

"We're determined to give it a good shot, so, along with developing the stadium, we're looking at the squad.

"We're not where we want to be just yet. I'd like three or four at least before the weekend closes, maybe even four or five.

"We need the right characters. We know where we want to be but we have never survived in the Premier League. We need players that are going to fight and die for the cause."

Crystal Palace are involved in the first Super Sunday game of the season when they take on Tottenham Hotspur in the lunchtime kick-off.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
