Florian Marange: Plans showdown talks with Crystal Palace

Marange, who joined Palace from Bordeaux on a free transfer earlier this summer, was omitted from Ian Holloway's squad after Palace made 16 signings during the transfer window.

The defender's only appearance for Palace came in the 2-1 Capital One Cup defeat at League One side Bristol City last month.

The 27-year-old is not happy with the decision to leave him out of the squad and has been shocked by his treatment since arriving at the club.

"I am disgusted," Marange told L'Equipe. "If I knew that rule (Premier League list), I would have asked to add a clause on my contract.

"But my adviser didn't tell me. And now people almost tell me it is my fault.

"I played in the Cup against Bristol City. We lost but I made no fault on the two goals conceded. I only did seven or eight training sessions.

"How could you judge a player in 10 days?

"I was not presented to the press. I never had any official photo and I am still waiting for my club suit. I stayed for a fortnight in a hotel before settling in a house and the officials told it was up to me to pay the bill.

"This is a big mess.

"It is a real hassle. I have a good contract, I am earning a bit more than in Bordeaux, but living in London is 10 times more expensive. And I came to play."

Marange now plans to meet Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish on Wednesday to thrash out his future.

"Either I cancel my contract or I am waiting for the winter transfer market to find a new club," added Marange.

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...

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.
