Facebook furore as Palace youngster reveals his plan to millions | Football | The Guardian


Some transfers come to light only when a footballer is spotted relaxing on the yacht of a rival club’s billionaire owner or dining at the favourite restaurant of their chief executive, but a young Crystal Palace player has moved the whole business into the modern era by posting details of a proposed move on his Facebook page.

Robinson posted a message on Saturday which read: “Ashley-Paul is goin fulham on monday. If i pull dis off im on dis ting.” On Sunday he added: “Ashley-Paul is travling 2 Bath With Fulham Fingers Crossed.”

After news of the move spread, he posted a new message yesterday afternoon saying: “Ashley-Paul has been very naughty lol!”
