You’ve yet to score a Premier League goal this season.
With Man United and Chelsea next up you need to make a statement. So what do you do if you’re Roy Hodgson?
You sign Carlton Cole, naturally.

Hodgson has identified Cole as the man to solve his striking issues, according to the Mirror.
With Christian Benteke out with a knee injury and Connor Wickham not available until January Hodgson’s attacking options are currently limited.
Who better to solve that than a man with 14 years of Premier League experience under his belt?
And he’s got an England cap to his name. Seven England caps, to be precise.
Okay, we’re trying our hardest to be optimistic, but it’s proving to be quite difficult.
Cole was last seen playing alongside Michael Essien for Persib Bandung in the top flight of Indonesian football.

Unfortunately he failed to find the net in Indonesia and was swiftly released.
Prior to that the 33-year-old was playing for American side Sacramento Republic in the United Soccer League.
You have to go back to October 2014 to find the last time Cole scored in the Premier League.
That day he was playing in the claret and blue of West Ham, against Burnley, so at least the transition to Palace won’t be too difficult.
So cheer up Palace fans.
If we’d offered you an England international who’d played for Chelsea on a free you’d have bitten our hand off.
Shame it’s ten years too late.
