Stoke City Transfers: Potters ready to ditch Wilson Palacios

SWOL at related • 1 view

Honduran international midfielder Wilson Palacios was once viewed as one of the brightest up and coming midfielders in the English Premier League. However, following his departure from Wigan Athletic to Tottenham Hotspur in 2009 his stock started to fall.

He had been the most important piece of Steve Bruce's midfield and offense at Wigan Athletic, but once he moved on he struggled to be that important anywhere else.

Soccer By Ives at related • 1 view



Maurice Edu and Geoff Cameron teamed together in central defense to do their part in the U.S. men's national team's first-ever win on Mexican soil last week. It appears as if the two may be joining forces much more frequently for the foreseeable future.

According to Rangers manager Ally McCoist, Edu's representation alerted him to a potential transfer to Stoke City, a move that would facilitate his transfer out of the fourth-tier Scottish club and into the English Premier League where he would be teammates with Cameron.

Why Spurs should sign Benitez

With reports in the media that Andre Villas-Boas is the man Tottenham Hotspur are preparing to sign as manager I feel now is a good time to put forward my views as to why I believe that Rafa Benitez would be a more suited match than AVB.

Benitez has been out of a job for almost two years and has said in the press many times that he is waiting for the right job to along.

Wilson Palacios was given his first start in the league for Stoke City yesterday and his services were required immediately. More immediately than he probably thought, as his mascot suddenly had a need for his mommy. Or was frightened by Peter Crouch. Or he just knew he was going to have to sit through 90 minutes of Stoke City.

D.C. United transfer news and rumors: Wilson Palacios Rumors Won't Die, They Only Multiply

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

Whomever's doing this needs to stop. Oh wait...

From a lonely tweet yesterday (I mean, it WAS 4/20 after all), now apparently folks in the Catracho press are starting to attach Honduras national team and Stoke City midfielder Wilson Palacios to D.C. United.

On the surface, a guy who played in the past at Tottenham (and apparently drew quick interest from Manchester United at one point) sounds intriguing, but digging a little deeper, you'll see that Palacios was going to go to Qatar before failing a medical, and his last game for Stoke was more than a year ago in a loss to Chelsea.

Espinoza to Wigan?

The first I saw of this rumor was reading The Daily Wiz, which linked to an article from The Mirror in the UK.

Wigan has in the past brought in other Hondurans, like Wilson Palacios and currently has Maynor Figueroa in their squad as well.
