if he gets us 2 places higher in the league than we would be without him, he's paid for himself and more.

He was playing for Spurs (all be it as a sub) until May 2015 so you'd assume he was match fit(ish) up to that point.

Not saying I disagree with you in terms of the impact he's going to have mind.

This time last year we signed Shola Ameobi to a similar deal so I'm certainly not complaining.
That puts this deal in perspective!

I'm pleased Adebayor has been given a 6 month chance by Palace.

I hope that he will not bring agendas.
I hope he will clear his head, train hard and concentrate on doing his best.

Give 100% and the fans will get behind him. Especially if he slams in some goals!

The positive is that it's his last chance in the prem. If he fails at Palace I don't see him getting another chance with another club, at least not on those wages.

The Times this morning said we're paying 77k a week and Spurs 25k. Seems a reasonable six months deal. He is 32 next month and has to play well to get another substantial contract anywhere.

As with other signings, I'm going to see how he does in a a Palace shirt before damning him to hell. I'm nice like that

Wasn't so keen on him referring to himself as 'Adebayor', rarely a good sign when people refer to themselves in the third person!
Whilst I get where you're coming from, one thing that most top quality strikers have in common is confidence that has traversed fully into the realms of arrogance. Think Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo, that utter wanker C*ntona (spit) etc.

Of course, I hope I'm wrong and I will celebrate every goal he scores like a madman - And I genuinely hope it's plenty, but I just can't see it.
Genuinely can't see it?

I get that people may be too irritated by his supposed mercenary attitude to be welcoming towards his signing, but he's not failed to score well at any of his clubs. There are a few things that could go awry during his time here but I don't think his ability in front of goal will be one of them!

I remember us signing a player before who hadn't played for a year (for a very different reasons).

Anyway - that worked out ok.

Really good interview with EA. Spoke well, seemed relaxed and almost ready to play.
Can tell he's a very driven man when he mentioned about being a couple of points off 5th, got a good feeling about this one.

Ladbrokes are offering 5/1 that he leaves Selhurst Park without scoring. How dare they!!!

Great article in 442 dispels all of the stereotyping he's been subjected to in life and on these pages..

5/6 weeks ago I was against the idea, now I feel he may be exactly what we need to give our season a good kick up the arse!

I think he'll give the whole club a lift and if we can get him anywhere near his best then we'll have a hell of a player.

He will be fine for six months as he's playing for a contract. It's next season he will be shite.

He will make a lot of these negative remarks look silly. But then this thread will be buried in applause by then.
