Palace Fate Could Impact Owls

Crystal Palace will find out at 3pm today if a deal has been successful to buy the club and save it from liquidation - and it could have a big impact at S6.

The Eagles have been struggling financially throughout last season but a deal to buy the club seemed to have been struck by CPFC 2010 to save the Selhurst Park club.

That was all thrown into chaos yesterday when Selhurst Park, which is being sold by the Bank of Scotland, become a problematic part of the deal.

It could mean the London club could start the liquidation process as early as this afternoon, and it could impact the Football League standings for the start of next season.

This is where Wednesday come in - and Football League rules state that should Palace go into liquidation, the Owls could well be re-instated into the Championship for the 2010-11 campaign.

First of all, it's never nice to see clubs struggling financially, especially when others not too far away prosper, and financial problems are something Wednesdayites know all-too-well.

Vital Wednesday wishes Palace all the best in saving their club today.

The rules on whether Wednesday will find a rather fortunate way back into the Championship sooner than expected are still quite unclear, and nobody from the club has made any comment on this possibility.

I guess things will become a lot clearer this afternoon when Palace's 3pm deadline comes around, and their future becomes a bit clearer.

It's certainly been an interesting start to the close season at Hillsborough, and it looks set to continue for a while yet...

We don't deserve it. It would be bad for us if we were to stay up imo. We'd just end up going down again

If Palace were to go under they should play with 23 teams in the Championship next season and let an extra team get promoted from league one .That way it is done on merit.

I thought the only way we would stay in championship is if palace went under before playoff final but the season is now over and nothing can be done and there will be 23 teams next season
