Chelsea Striker Linked With Shock Summer Move To Palace

According to Italian football site Tuttomercatoweb, Crystal Palace are planning on an ambitious move for Chelsea striker Loic Remy over the summer. 

The French striker has previously worked with new Eagles boss Alan Pardew at Newcastle, and now, should Palace indeed secure Premier League survival for another year, it sounds as though the former Magpies supremo is keen to reunite with the front man. 

Remy’s chances to impress in a Chelsea shirt have been limited to say the least, having been forced to play a supporting role to Diego Costa for most of the season, and with Didier Drogba still on the scene at Stamford Bridge, it seems as though Jose Mourinho would be willing to let Remy leave if he can lure one or two high profile strikers to west London once the season concludes. 

Whether or not Remy would be open to a move to SE25 is as of yet unknown, but with the club on the up, he may well see the opportunity to work with Alan Pardew once again as a blessing, as he looks to rediscover the goalscoring touch which made him such a hit at St James’ Park. 

For Palace to even be feasibily linked to a player of Remy’s pedigree is an indication of the progress we’ve made in recent seasons, with numerous daily newspapers reporting the story without a hint of scepticism in their tone. 

Would you be happy to see the French international pull on a red and blue shirt? I certainly would.

Palace Expecting To Sell Out For Stoke Trip In No Time

Our trip to face Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on the 21st March has been chosen as this season’s “Palace On Tour Day” with the club taking the opportunity to secure the maximum of 2,900 tickets for the trip.

Whilst the vast majority of our away games are usually put on sale to specific sections of our support first, Palace have decided to release all of the tickets to season ticket holders in one hit, with a maximum of 10 seats per person, as we look to sell out the full allocation with plenty of time to spare.

With no game this weekend, as the FA Cup takes centre stage once again, we will now wait until Saturday 14th March before welcoming QPR to Selhurst Park, followed the week after by the journey to face Mark Hughes’ men in the hope of securing a sixth away victory in seven matches under the stewardship of Alan Pardew.

Tickets for the game are on sale now, priced at £25 for adults, £19 for over 65s, £15 for 11-16 year-olds and £12 for children under the age of 11. They should sell relatively quickly, so if you are keen to go, it is advised that you buy early to avoid missing out.
