The Crystal Palace fans don’t know what has happened to their team this season…
The Eagles have really struggled this season, firstly under Frank De Boer and now Roy Hodgson, and it’s very quickly reaching panic stations at Selhurst Park.
Their latest blow, an injury to Christian Benteke, has made life even more difficult for the club, and some of the fans in the Transfer Tavern think that there is no way back at this point.
Roy Hodgson, though, seemingly has a plan, and that plan involves Carlton Cole. Currently without a club, the Mirror are reporting that Palace are keen on a move for the Englishman.
Cole is rated at £450,000 by Transfer Markt, and so a move for Palace would represent very good value for money, as he’d have no transfer cost given his free agent status. More importantly, he could be signed prior to the re-opening of the January transfer window, but despite his availability and lack of cost, some of the fans in the pub aren’t happy.
Cole, though a recognised name, has had a poor run of form over the last few years, and the fact that he was recently released by an Indonesian side says it all.
However, there are a few benefits to bringing him in, and the Palace fans should trust Roy Hodgson.
Here are 2 reasons why this £450k-rated attacker could help solve Crystal Palace’s problems…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
