Edgar Davids signs for Palace
Any excuse to post this classic
It’s been a good day for Crystal Palace fans. Having this morning received news the club has finally moved out of administration, it now appears legendary dreadlocked midfielder Edgar Davids is packing up his vast collection of fashionable sports goggles and moving to south east London on a pay-as-you-play deal.
37-year-old Davids hasn’t kicked a ball competitively in over two years since leaving Ajax, but removed his pipe and slippers to join in at a training session with Palace this morning.
Having impressed Eagles boss George Burley by not instantly crumbling into a pile of dust, the man once known as the Pitbull has been snapped up and may fill in at left back for Palace as soon as Tuesday’s Carling Cup clash with Portsmouth.
