Parish: More Palace signings

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.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
