Yannick Bolasie: Staying put with Crystal Palace

The French-born winger has been in scintillating form for the Eagles since joining from Bristol City.

But his performances have caught the eye of DR Congo, who know he qualifies for them, and their coach Claude Le Roy is keen on a call-up.

Bolasie is the cousin of current international Lomana Lua Lua and the African nation are looking to call him up in time to play in South Africa.

However, whilst Bolasie is interested in representing the Leopards, it will not be at the finals of the 2013 African Cup of Nations, which would have meant he missed over a month of the Championship season.

"No he won't be playing for DR Congo at the African Cup of Nations next year," his agent Tony Finnigan confirmed to Sky Sports.

"He is interested and is flattered by the interest from DR Congo, but he has just moved to Palace, is enjoying his football and wants to concentrate on them for now.

"It is something he will look at, but he will not be going to South Africa - it is not the right time for him."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
