He is not the hard running, clinical type of striker that we could do alongside, behind Benteke though. Difficult to tell from highlights but....

He may be fast but he's six foot two. My only concern is whether or not he is in fact any good.

Mr Palace
06-07-2017, 12:25 PM
Unless Wickham leaves why would we have 3 similar big guy CFs at the club when the manager plays with 1?

I suppose because:

1. Wickham is a sicknote and will probably miss most of the season.

2. Benteke can't play every game and we will need someone to occasionally deputise and/or come on for him during games.

3. Sometimes we may want to play 2 strikers.

Definitely not similar players. Wickham plays with a lot more physicality and Babacar from what I've seen can really move in a way that Wickham can't. Babacar is a bit softer than I think people might expect. I'd like to have Babacar to offer something different up front, but we'll see. We've been down this road before with him.

Being strongly linked with Besiktas. 2m euro loan with option to buy for 7m euros at the end of the loan. I would have thought that would be great business for us, but he may be looking for a club where he can be the No1 striker

I half agree with this, half don't.

I can understand a continued monitoring of a player if they fit a consistent system, but given that we seem to **** about with one set up before reverting back to type...

Oh, wait. As you were.

and we wait until the last 24hrs of another window before we consider signing them? I understand that in some instances, situations become messy and result in protracted contract negotiations. It really does speak volumes to me. Clubs who have identified their targets predominantly go early in the market. Those who haven't, follow the market to watch who becomes available.

Do we, or are we the sheep that follow the media hype because we crave information that isn't honestly available? There's probably no real rumors for them to report on, but we still continue to chew on the fodder they feed us.

"Roy Hodgson has identified the man who might score a goal for Crystal Palace this season. Step forward Khouma Babacar, Fiorentina’s 24-year-old striker who would cost them around 10m. Only three more months to wait, Palace fans."

We've seemed to be after him for years so I was surprised to read he's still only 24.

The supposed fact we've beaten West Brom and Brighton looks quite good. Let's just hope the recruitment and scouting team have done their work on this one and he provides stiff competition for Benteke.

Shipp Ahoy!

Martin H
16-11-2017, 10:56 AM
As others have been said we seem to have been after this guy for ever. We seem to have a habit of identifying a player and then sticking with him as a target for years. Wouldn't surprised to see Shearer or Le Tiss signing for us in Jan.

Obviously with Babs we have 3 or 4 years of data and insight into his progress but how likely is it that the right player 3 or 4 years ago is still the right player when you have a world of players to choose from? Or is it more likely that someone somewhere has locked into a belief?

Would like something positive to finish on but just watched last year's highlights and bearing in mind it is highlights he doesn't look clinical and not sure his touch/control/carrying the ball are up to today's Premier League. In a way he reminds me of a clumsy Benteke. Can shoot and head but he has scored goals in Seria A and that can't be that easy despite their national decline so.... a positive?

Usually Palace screw around until the subject has a hot streak, then someone else buys him.
But, not to worry, RH says all the rumours are cobblers (I believe him), and the latest crap from the 'Star' is not even worth a post, is it ?
Of course, an African playing in a medium-sized club in Italy, is not necessarily the same as an African playing for a Prem club which welcomes Africans and has quite a few on the books.
