From the official palace press release :

Crystal Palace have signed Jean-Philippe Mateta on an 18-month loan deal, subject to international clearance, with an option to make the move permanent

Note it says option…..not obligation

If Palace decide he's not going to hack it, they don't give him 15 starts and he goes back to Mainz. In effect, Palace are in control of whether to exercise the obligation to buy or not, so in that sense the club can call it an option to buy in its press release.

That doesn't tie in with Mainz said, they said 14m euros, with 3m addons, and an obligation to buy if he plays starts 1 game, someone is telling porkies, if he plays well nobody will question the signing, if he plays rubbish and still signs the porkies will be revealed

I'm sure Mateta will given a REAL chance this season, so there will no excuses if he fails.

 


I am not a bot. No, seriously, I'm not.

Surely this is the better option? Ayew had proven himself a useful, hard working premier league striker with a reasonable goals to games ratio, has mobility and hold up play. Plus he's a hard working but crap winger in my opinion, so it's not like we'd miss him out wide.

Whether it's a bit much for the likes of Banks or Rak-Sahki to fill in wide right only time will tell, but given the arrival of Gallagher it's possible that Schlupp could go out wide.


After the Chelsea game, yes.

I tend to agree with you re the Ayew option and that he's more effective as a striker than a wide player and with the way PV wants to play he may do well in the central striking role.

However, it depends on how the club see the Mateta situation. If they think there's a player in there who they want to buy then now is the time to give him a chance. We need to know sooner rather than later whether or not he's up to it. Confidence is everything especially with strikers and having just won a penalty and scored from the spot he could do with playing at least the next game or two.

He's already had his 1 start (last season) so why haven't we bought him yet and terminated the loan agreement?

As I see it, either Woosnam is right or it's simply an 18 month loan with an option to buy.
