It’s hard to argue with that!

Harry Kane was probably put on england corner taking duty to give him something to do

It’s a bit of both... consecutive 90 mins will help young players. Our system isn’t suited to having a prolific striker. AS would have done a better job than CB at 1/6th of the price.

What starved Sorloth was never being given more than a few minutes at a time at the end of games, whilst blindly and foolishly persevering with Benteke .
He will be our downfall. The Sorloth saga was a fiasco. He was never given a chance. Why would you loan out a striker before you have signed a replacement anyway Especially if your main striker can't hit a barn door. Crazy.

He certainly wasn't given much of an opportunity, and appeared to get progressively worse in each appearance, maybe he was just demoralised?

Now we have similar with Wickham. Doesn't matter how many times Benteke fails to score, he still starts ahead of Connor who gets 7 or 8 minutes at the end of games when we're losing

Sorloth showed good and bad in his performances. Which is a lot more than Benteke. Sorloth has scored more in 3 games than Benteke has in 40. Benteke has 1 goal in the last 22. He doesn’t run, he has very little athletic ability, and no heart... yet plays every week.

Well done Sorloth. And well done to our recruitment department. They clearly saw something there and unfortunately RH didn’t trust them. He proved he could score last year on loan at Gent and now he is doing it again.

Batshuayi scored 5 in 11 games to disprove your theory.

I think ‘Roy’s system starves target men’ would be more accurate. A clever poacher with good movement who can finish well with his feet like Batshauyi can work okay. There’s no excuse for Benteke, he should be doing better with the ball at his feet, but he would be scoring a few more for us if we just put in more crosses.

As for Sorloth, I honestly don’t think he was given enough gametime to make any real judgement about him and Roy’s system. He’s big like a target man, but clearly better at finishing with his feet than Benteke, so maybe could’ve worked if we just gave him more of a chance.

His agent would only entertain clubs that offered him a 3yr deal.
This free signing probably cost about 15m

Sure it was Simon Jordan i heard the other day ripping Sturridge apart as a person. Couldn’t see why anyone would take a punt on him.

Crystal Palace signed Alexander Sørloth from FC Midtjylland in January 2018 and the striker penned a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Eagles.

Due to limited playing time, Roy Hodgson allowed the 23-year-old to go out on loan to Turkish club Trabzonspor until 2021. The English club announced the deal on their official website and apart from the temporary deal, no additional details were mentioned.

Transfermarkt mentions the attacker’s contract at Selhurst Park runs down in 2022, but Norway’s TV2 claims he signed an extension with the Premier League side before going out on loan.

Sørloth gave his view on the Crystal Palace decision.

“Palace will still see how my development goes. At the same time, if I complete the two-year loan then I have only one year left of the contract, and then it is difficult for them to have any good negotiating cards after the end of the loan period,” he said.

The Norway international has had a good start to his life at Trabzonspor, scoring three goals in the first seven matches in all competitions.

Even though his immediate focus is with the Super Lig side, the player has not given up on finding his way in the Premier League.

“As long as it is on the table, you obviously have a goal about it [Premier League]. But right now, I’m really just thinking about doing as best as I can at Trabzonspor, continuing to score goals and being able to fight for trophies,” he added.

Sørloth’s is unsurprisingly in Norway’s squad for the upcoming international fixtures.

If true, this is really good news - and fits in nicely with the idea of buying a young player that we can develop.

It does, however, counter the rumour that there's an agreement that Trabzonspor will buy him once he plays 15 games for them.
