Absolute shambles. The worst thing is we weren't even that bad which is most worrying

No chance of a point in the next three games.

Don't strengthen in areas you need to and it'll catch up with you eventually. We had a golden chance to put together a decent squad in the summer but we penny pinch then throw at it in January.

Shit way to run a club.

I think we will get something against Chelsea.

We have always been a team where the players turn up against the big boys, but are either arrogant or a shambles against other teams. That has been true whatever dicision we are in - see Shrewsbury. It is why we keep getting results against Liverpool, and keep losing to the likes of Burnley and Swansea.

All roads lead to Parish. How we failed to sign a first team standard striker is a disgrace.

Thank god we've got 15 centre backs. Maybe if we play a team of 10 centre backs we won't concede and get our first point

The thing is his flicks are always unlikely to produce much when he's playing as the sole forward with the two 'wingers' sitting deeper. So either he needs to try to hold the ball up if possible, or he needs someone alongside him.

I thought Shane Long played the lone striker role much more effectively than Benteke did today.

Any club that allows itself to end up with one fit striker for 4 months and spends 26m on an injured centre back who will be the 6th or 7th in the squad clearly planned on relegation.

Maybe we need to bring in some Psychologists to work with the players and show them what the white things are at each end of the pitch. If you don't laugh you would cry! We got lucky last year and were very lucky to get away with it. Maybe our luck will run out this year. Why do we always handicap ourselves with dreadful starts and never learn from our previous mistakes?

We really should have had a youth striker or someone on the bench. Teams can spend all week preparing for Benteke, and then if they see our bench has no other striker they can manage their subs accordingly. At the very least, I'd like to see another squad player converted to striker in the reserve games, maybe Schlupp? He's pacy at least and played as a striker in his youth days.

Fatboy

Why leave it at just no goal ?

No Teamwork
No confidence
No leaders
No creativity
No new signings up front

This is death by 38 cuts. One every game.

You can let the Huddersfield shambles pass. Not getting it sorted and playing how we did against Swansea was worse. That is why we are where we are. Other clubs have their bad results, but they usually bounce back with a result soon after. We were worse at our first real opportunity to get some points on the board. It has been a crisis ever since.

BillyTKid
16-09-2017, 02:28 PM
Allardyce has said multiple times during the summer that Palace need to spend money on their defence as we have goals already in us. He clearly still has Parish's ear as our transfers reflected this. Unfortunately that was bollox as we have no options to change a game and without zaha are completely toothless.

Why is our close ball control so poor?

Why are we so easily bullied off the ball?

Why are Puncheon, Ward and Hennessey still in this team?

Why does no one else get within 50 yards of Benteke?

Why is there no movement in front of the ball so it always go back?

Why why why why why??

Really? Best we could do is a scoreless draw because we can't score, but then we'll go down a goal in the first five minutes and that'll be that.

Sadly we are a club with little ambition and no hope. Our biggest financial outlay over the recent years has been paying off managers rather than investing in players. To be relegated would be a disaster after our longest period in the Premiership and a sad indictment on the management IMHO. Whilst there are those who see life through rose tinted glasses, there are some of us who are realists! After our forthcoming games against the Manchester pair and Chelski, there is every possibility we will be pointless after nearly a quarter of the season. Today's performance was lamentable and we had players on the pitch who would struggle in the Championship.

DARZET EAGLE

Last season we beat Saints easily 3-0 and then despatched Pardew shortly after. In came Allardyce, who by his own admission took some time to get his first win. He then left after sorting out the squad with some terrific results. In came De Boer to change our footballing philosophy with a passing game from the back. Issues saw him leave under a cloud an abject failure. We now have Roy, who given time despite today, will sort out the mess he has inherited just like Allardyce. Our players display little passion, awareness, skill and confidence, which is understandable given the upheavals in Management since the start of the year. Even, given the rich rewards modern day players have for success or indeed just kicking a football, they are only human, and the cauldron that is Selhurst Park with a bunch of on time estatic supporters morphing into a nervous impatient mob is just too much I feel. I cry out for composure and leadership on the pitch, and until yet another transfer window in January, we have to make do with what we have got, with the possible addition of a free agent striker hopefully. I sincerely hope that with Roy and his coaching team left to sort out matters on the training ground, the return of Wilf with his majestic skill and desire, and Sakho as captain, stonewall defender and leader, our fortunes will improve. Come on you Palace!

Yep, very noticeable in the 2nd half.

Also, as soon as the ball goes wide CBs close down on Benteke and the space between the LB/RB is not been utilised.

Any news on Zaha's return?

Yes that's right the season Alan Smith was Manager in the Premier League with a run of over 9 league games without a League goal 836 Minutes run without a goal.

Looking at the Line Up when we finally scored against Leicester it included the likes of Ricky Newman, Darren Pitcher and George Ndah Superstar.

Let's hope we don't get up to that amount of minutes!

Its always that..."can Wilf dribble past 4 players" tactic.

We never put balls through to the striker...never get behind the defence. We miss Bolasie so much.
