Our Polish (reliable) newspaper "Przegląd Sportowy" saying that at this moment Crystal Palace is most determined to sign him

for the amount we've spent in second rate players we could of had a front 4 of kane zaha son mane
We would have had Mané if he hadn't wanted to be paid more than our top players despite coming from Southampton where he had shown potential but been erratic. The fee wasn't a problem.

Can't see them getting him and Tosun.
According to the paper, they want to buy, not to loan him. Maybe that info is a couple of days old, but...

They got Tosun on a loan, but maybe they watched Piątek for a long time. They bought Jarosław Jach couple of years ago, who played in the same team in Poland as Piątek.

Maybe Piątek became available, so they want to buy him, because they want him not for the next 3 months, like we do, but for the next 3 seasons.

I was pissed enough when Milan got him. If he goes to Palace I'll be fuming

We didn't want to pay him and he moved to a club that paid his deserved rate. Mane is a fantastic player missed.

We missed a ton of players not going that extra yard...Grealish the last one that really pissed me off

He is a fantastic player now but at that time there is no way he deserved to be our highest paid player. None at all.

The Grealish revisionism really tickles me. This place went fucking mental (not in a good way) when it looked as though he might be signed for c.£20m that summer. Now he's had a good season in the Championship and is doing well in the PL people are losing their shit that we didn't just pay even more.

If you can be bothered to look back when most wanted Maddison I personally thought Grealish was by far the better player (IMO) As for Mane it wasn't about wages it was Southampton's asking price.

I don't doubt your desire for Grealish, I was just making a point about what seems to now be the prevailing opinion on SC.

Also, I think Southampton wanted Townsend before Mane but we didn’t want to let Townsend go there so they went for Mane instead.

As for piatek. This has gone quiet hasn’t it. Not happening I suspect.
