Our Crystal Palace fans here in the Transfer Tavern have got smiles on their faces for the first time in a while after their win over Middlesbrough at the weekend.
In a hard-fought if unspectacular game the Eagles edged out their relegation rivals to get a crucial three points on the board as we head towards the business end of the season.
Any advantage Sam Allardyce and his men can get at this point, then, has to be welcomed and it seems that one of their most recent signings could be another boost.
That’s because, according to former Selhurst Park player Sasa Curcic on Twitter, the south London side’s midfielder Luka Milivojevic is similar in playing style to Real Madrid’s Luka Modric.

High praise indeed from Curcic and it remains to be seen if the Serbian can match the Croatian’s impact in the Premier League.
If he can emulate Modric he’s surely going to be a class player for the Eagles though some of our local Palace punters have rightly pointed out that that could see him move on pretty sharpish from the club.
Thoughts, Palace fans? Let us know below!
