The club will need to film a painfully cringey new signing reveal video first. Probably find a Brazilian steakhouse in South London to do it from first

 


La la la your mum

Responsibility Deficit Disorder is a medical condition. Symptoms include inability to be corrected when wrong, false sense of superiority, desire to share personal info no else cares about, general hubris. It's a medical issue rather than pure arrogance.

Could anything rival the " Meyer of London " rubbish video.

OK I'm ready for some abuse but am I the only one slightly warry of this signing. Seems a precocious talent and may be brilliant but a route through Portugal or Spain may be better.
From our perspective will he play. The Roy factor has already been highlighted. Can we play 3 skill players in our team (I realise Olise injured at the moment). Finally since our funds are limited is this too much of a gamble?
That said I'll be delighted if he scores the winner at Bramall Lane but he will be lucky to make the bench.

I was wondering why he wasn't on the radar of various Southern European teams. It's highly unusual for a young Brazilian to jump straight into English football at the highest level. Given our starting 11 I am curious to see how he will fit in to the midfield without compromising the delicate balance that has been achieved between the players we already have there.

Perhaps Palace supporters should breakaway from tradition and give him a chance, by all means crucify him after a few poor games. Otherwise it will be all uphill.

They should film him ordering a pint of the cheapest available alcoholic beverage in a south London Wetherspoons at 9:30am then sitting at a table with a few betting slips. Iíd love that.

But I was looking forward to doing that.

 


One more point

I think with Zaha gone and as you say Olise injured and the multiple reports of them being sold for high sums in future years that this makes sense. Whether it works out we have to wait and see. The recruitment has been good in the last couple of years so we can allow ourselves to have some optimism.

Perhaps the plan is to create so many chances with our exciting and gifted midfielders that any combination of Mateta and / or Edouard will be able to knock in 20 goals.
