Surely no-one has become a cult hero at Palace quicker than Mamadou Sakho. His eight-game cameo helping the Eagles avoid the drop last season has already gone down in club folklore, and paved the way for his permanent move in the final moments of the summer window. Now, he is ready to do it all again.
The original of the Eagles’ French Five, Yohan Cabaye has hit the goal trail at the perfect time to boost Palace’s survival chances, and now he is hoping the extra influence of Les Bleu can help the red and blue in the season’s final few weeks.
The list of Mathieu Flamini’s former teammates reads like a Who’s Who of the 21st century’s biggest stars. From Ballon d’Or winners to global icons, he’s shared a changing room with them all, but now he is hoping that his wealth of experience can be a useful tool for his current squad’s hopes in 2017.
Yohan Cabaye’s much heralded arrival last month sent out a strong signal of intent to the rest of the Premier League that the Eagles will be a force to be reckoned with in 2015/16, and his goal at Norwich City last weekend gave him the perfect start. With our club record signing already hitting his stride, just sit back and enjoy watching the midfield artist create the first of many masterpieces on the green canvas that is Selhurst Park this season.
