Crystal Palace

Pulis may well have tightened up the Palace backline but they still remain the leagues lowest scorers, a stat that will need to change if they are to be successful next season. Chamakh still fails to convince, and many of Pulis’ captures appear to be short-term stopgaps rather than features of long term planning. McCormack would be a guaranteed starter for a Palace side short in attacking quality, and for someone looking to make the step up to the Premier League this represents an exciting opportunity. Able to play in a variety of positions, McCormack is exactly the type of attacking option that Pulis has favoured in the past and one he should consider going forward as well.
