Am sure super Frank these were fringe players he wanted to look at before making a decision about their futures 

Agree with above we've moved on from him now 

Yes, and if you were Kasey, and were given a slim chance to make it at Chelsea, you’d probably give it a whirl.  I know we triggered an option on Jay, but I’m still a bit surprised be got the deal done.  Perhaps the fact that Chelsea had agreed a deal with us, showed him that his future was not with Chelsea.  Palmer still clinging to that hope, and good luck to him.

Could still end up here on loan by August, but he will have allowed the likes of Sammie Szmodics to have stolen a march on him.

Sarcasm - how refreshing !

Lowest form of wit apparently? Seriously though, if I was a Chelsea supporter I’d be worried about the coming season if Palmer was in the first team plans! As good as some think he is, he wasn’t a first team starter for us or Blackburn.

@Davefevs

After seeing Szmodics so far, he has a bit of the touch of the Bobby Reid about him; and you can see where LJ is going for next season.

I can't see where Palmer fits into the plan. If he was to come, I can't see him being on the starting 11; only a continued option off the bench.

No surprise to me therefore, that he's decided to try again at Chelsea. Shame as he was something different for us, but as always we move on.

One of the things you can see with Sammie is how hungry he is to prove himself at a higher level and you can feel his excitement and commitment to giving it his all.

KP is a very talented player but with his Chelsea pedigree he seems to come at it from the opposite direction.

I saw Palmer coming here because LJ won’t be able to get us the striker we need, e.g. the no risk 20 goal striker is out of our price range, so I saw him playing a bit more strikerless at times. And I think Palmer might’ve been very useful in that system.

Palmer played for Chelsea yesterday on their tour and played some good passes (highlights on the Chelsea website)  - so it looks that either he or Chelsea have decided he’s staying put for the time being

Keep up kid

FL needs to decide on his Prem squad - don’t forget he has a limited number of slots. So he is, quite sensibly, trying out the players available to him. 

If Palmer isn’t ultimately part of that squad  then I imagine he will be available again. We will have to wait and see.

As much LJ will understand this it must be  irritating for LJ because he keeps saying if we are to bring Palmer back and get some good out of him he wanted a full pre-season with him.

Most young player loans from prem clubs won’t happen until the prem team decides their squad anyway so we probably won’t know until then! 

Same with Eddie from Arse!

Prem teams wouldn’t name under 21s in the squad anyway.

I still think we need Palmer type player, to rely on Szmodics making the step up and reliance on a workman like Paterson is a concern.  When we are at home facing teams parking the bus we need a mercurial creative player to unlock the defence, far to many home games last season where we lacked this type of player to come on.

Yep and Palmer from the bench unlocked a fair few! He’d be a more exciting signing than any striker imo. Feel like that mercurial player is more vital than a 20+ goal guy as the creative one can get him 5-7 easy goals! One of Diedhiou’s easiest chances last year was a Palmer little splitting through ball edge of the box to Weimann who cut it back to Fam on penalty spot against Forest. 

And I am with you on Szmodics. Looks amazing so far but when you are on your 5th game in two weeks in the middle of November on a cold rainy night at AG against Millwall sitting deep it is a different affair
