I wasn't expecting anybody in due to present circumstances.

The club should be applauded in my view.

January signings give such a lift, a re-fresh.

Three games on the trot without a goal, the message could not be clearer.

What have you heard and where from that says itís only an Option?

I heard it as "Option' but my dear wife was watching television at the time so I could have mis-heard it.

To be totally honest, I had not heard of Mateta until recently - I bow down to Mattteo who is the font of knowledge of players from abroad but who has not been contributing to HOL for quite a while.
Watching or following the Bundesliga has not been on my list of priorities - I used to watch La Liga when it was broadcast on Sky.

It seems like a smart try-before-you-buu deal by the club.

Loan with an option to buy that becomes an obligation after 15 games for £17m.

Buy the time he gets to 15 games we should know if he's worth the money to invest.

£17m in itself isn't much for a premier league striker any more. You wouldn't get a Liverpool reject for that money.

I hope he doesn't become another Camarassa or Batshuayi. Could this be the reason Ayew was hardly played in his loan season?

You've got to gamble with strikers and most deals won't work out. Murray, Johnson , and Wright all required a bit of luck.

It's surprising a team in a relegation battle have let their top scorer go for so little.

Now we see why Meyer has been let go, based on new evidence, I'm now more inclined to believe the deal was instigated by the club rather than the player.

With Mateta, Eze, Ferguson signing the average age of signings is going in the right direction, and there's some hope that the club might be building for something.

Now the priority would be to tie up existing contracts, and try and find a Cabaye replacement (if one exists). To do that we need to let someone else go. The sale of Sakho has been rumoured.

A sensible post at last.

If some of the posters bothered to see the bigger picture -

1. Relatively small amount paid for him on a deal which is financially half decent for Palace(The team with sweet f*** all money in comparison to other teams with the pulling power of Roy Hodgson. Ignoring the Americans vast sum that they hang on to so dearly.)
2. A team that has god knows how many signings, restructuring and contract extensions to sort after this season.
3. A season that isn't too awful and so they are looking most likely...towards the following season. I mean for once they have a player in early.
4. Usually this forum would be up in arms about being beaten to a player. (Literally every transfer window.)
5. He isn't 31 years old.
6. Let's face it, Bats is here for a payday and he isn't here to put any effort in (as far as I've seen.)
7. Fingers crossed they're looking at creative midfielders now that a forward has been acquired.
8. It may lift the spirits and inspire and influence some of the players like - Zaha, Eze, Townsend etc.

We can all see the bigger picture, if he is good then great, but midfield is where we really need improvement.

Great to see us get someone in on a sensible deal. I still think however that we have adequate strikers in Ayew, Benteke, Bats, Zaha and that supply and knowing who our preferred up front pairing is, is our issue. A winger and CB should be our targets this window IMO but welcome Mateta

No idea of he's any good but I like that we've managed to recruit a player we identified a while back. Shows there is at least some sort of plan to our recruitment

What we need is to see how he fits in after 14 starts, after 15 we are committed.

Fingers crossed, but the track record with Hodgson and outfield foreign signings being utilised is not great.
Sorloth, Meyer, Camarasa, Jach, Rakip and Riedewald.
Can they all really be so awful?
Luka is the only one who has been regularly involved and in many ways that's because he's an archetypal Hodgson player.
Just hope he's onboard with the signing and doesn't attempt to make him learn defensive forward play from Ayew as opposed to getting into the penalty area and scoring some goals.

As CPFCwetrust has just said a sensible post at last.
Thanks, I was beginning to despair at all the negativity and cheap Hodgson jibes.

Ideally, we want a decent attacking midfielder who can link up the play. A shame we didn't take Gallagher.

However, we do need a young striker and as we've seen, those already playing in the Championship (never mind the PL) don't come cheap. For the money being asked, J-PM seems a reasonable risk to take. He probably won't complete his 15 starts this season, so we can review things in the summer. Hopefully we'll get to see enough of him before then to get an idea of how promising a player he is. He's the right kind of age; it's another piece of evidence that the board do mean what they say - namely they want to bring in youth.

But as many have said how do we intend to fit this lad into the team in a way that will give him a chance to perform in front of goal? Is it back to 4-3-3 with Zaha and Townsend being told to switch wings to provide balls into the box? That would allow Eze to play more centrally in midfield ahead of two CDMs Or does he simply replace Benteke or whoever partners Wilf up front in a 4-4-2?

4-2-3-1 might work but I've never seen Hodgson play that.

Having said all that, J-PM hasn't signed yet.

Finally, if he does sign what else might happen in the remaining 12 days of the transfer window?
