Agreed, but it sounds like he was happy to come here in January so perhaps there have already been talks. I doubt anyone is going to pay that sort of money for a guy who has hardly played for 2-3 years.
But that was on loan which I'd imagine Palace paying a chunk of his wages.

I was meaning the dialogue will already be open. No one is paying Chungy big money again - he's hardly kicked a ball for 2 years.

If anyone was lightweight it was chungy, so naturally Nat rates him.

He was a quality player though, playing central midfield before he left for Palace, he was ace.

He actually isn't that lightweight for someone so slight, I'd fancy him beating the shit out of you, especially as you bottled the sluffy fight.

I offered a meet up earlier and he was nowhere to be seen.

In regards to CYL. Yeah he was quality before he left and seemed to be getting back to his pre leg break form after so long, then he stupidly decides to join a new club, where he has to start all over again, I think it's too late for him now. He would have made S Korea's world cup squad if he stayed with us.

I loved chungy, but I've moved on

Well, if CYL comes back then I hope he's (a) fully fit and (b) as hungry as he was when he first arrived at BWFC. However given his sheer lack of games at Palace I suspect he's going to be rusty and I don't know if he'll really be all that keen to play at this level again, especially in such a frankly average at best squad. With that said I rate his ability so if he comes in and DOES play to his best it's a brilliant signing for us.

However I'm not holding my breath waiting for it to happen, personally I think if he goes anywhere it'll be to a club that can pay a lot more than we can.

We'll be better when Victor arrives.

CYL, Anichebe and Flanagan are three players who will need a massive upturn in form - and possibly fitness - if they are to compete in the Championship next year. They're another group of ageing players who have lost their way and it's a huge gamble to take all three on at the same time as they would constitute a fair old percentage of the total wage bill leaving few options if it didn't work out. 
That said if they all got near the form they once had we could end up with a side that won't struggle as badly as we did last year. Hardly ambitious signings if this turns out to be true IMO, but I live in hope they'll come good.
Glad Chris Taylor has moved on though - he really was dead weight.

I personally think Flanagan has talent but he's not shown it consistently. If he DOES wind up here he'll definitely need to up his game in that respect but assuming he can I think it's a decent signing. Has there been any word on whether or not we're even talking to him though? As I understand it he's been released by Liverpool but we haven't entered into any talks with him as yet.

He was absolute crap for us, why on earth would Parky sign Twatface?

A no from me on CYL.

He was coasting until lennon managed to get the best out of him for a season.
One of the few good things lennon did.

His time has gone now time to move on.

I agree and he made some horrendous misjudgements when he started at Palace which is why he never cemented a place there. No surprise when he didn't make the S Korea World Cup squad however he is an average Championship player and if he's on average wages he could be an average signing, but I suspect his agent would be asking for too much.

If we signed an average Championship player then he'd be our best player.

But you make your judgement based on what? He's hardly kicked a ball since he left us. So unless you've moved your armchair onto his patio I don't understand how you can claim to know how good he is or isn't.

Ye got to agree with Nat. He didn’t get in a palace team with some great wingers already there and a team set up to play with on the counter with pace. Can’t write him off for failing to get into a mid table team.

I'd consider the signing of Chung Lee a major step in the right direction. Fook me, we'd have two creative players on the books, which is two more than the last 3 seasons.
