    Got to remember aswell 2 season s he was really good was playing with by far the best and most attacking team in the country so had lots of chances

    Crystal Palace are a very defensive negative team and chances will be much more limited

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that PSG don't give a flying * about a possible 200k here and there by random installment... That sell-on clause was to recoup money (£8-12M) from the £30-40M transfer that we managed to * up and avoid...

    What a player he’s been for us, but it was his time to go. Good luck

    Tbh mate a think he was constantly given plenty of chances due to the fact we knew how good he could be from the previous 2 seasons, had he signed start of last season and put in those type of performances he would probably have been benched long before it, in saying that the 2 other guys klimala as hard as he tried and Ajeti didn’t really offer much competition

    Tbh, I don't think they look at £200k here and there. I think they just think 40% of any profit regardless of when the installment comes in. Otherwise we could've gotten around by paying them virtually nothing.

    Im not as carried away. Capable of being a very good player on his day, but his day didnt come often enough to be considered great. Looked good when things were going well, but far from a world beater when we were up against jt.

    Lacks the work rate and heart to reach the very top. He wont be revered as much as Dembele and for me never really embodied any real passion for the club.

    he scored a goal every second game on average. More goals than most our other strikers in recent times. I’m not getting carried away that’s a good return

    Not arguing his goal return, but just fyi, Griffiths goal record is better a goal every other game also.

    Edouards should be better than what it is, especially when taken into the context of the strength of the league in his years of prominence.
    Everything is relative.

    I think he will find it hard going in England.

    Could have been another Larsson or a Dembele if only he would have put the graft in. The majority of us "wanted to be Edouard" however, for me, he's left a bit of a sour taste in many fan's mouths due to his moodiness and his downing of the tools just when we needed him most.

    For any normal club, sure... The chance to claw back another half mill isn't something you'd leave behind. But, for these looney tunes, billionaire owned, fantasy football teams who are using these schemes to get around FFP, I'm not so sure it isn't cleaner to just cut this loose rather than trying to track dozens and dozens of contracts over several years at a time for a relative pittance.

    For Eddy, who never even played for them, they've now received £9M upfront and now another £2.5M from this sale. In short, they're making as much roughly as we are, all in... Is it likely they'll want it to hang over their financial/legal people any further?

    After England, he’ll either end up back in France or * off to somewhere like Turkey in a few years.

    I don't think you understand how business works.

    I honestly don't know where to start? They're not going to write off another £200k down the line, no matter how rich their owners are.

    This'll be the same as Ajer/Starfelt. Palace announce Eddy, we'll announce Gio. Useless *.
