You think we'll win the next 12 in a row? Wow that's optimistic.

Sunderland and W Brom have both stayed up with 7 wins in recent years. We could go about this calmly, an astonishing stroke of genius loan forward signing would be a nice start.

Just to put this into context. In the last 65 matches we have won 14 but now apparently in the next 32 we are going to win 12. Sorry but years of over achieving, poor recruitment, poor scouting network, managerial merry-go-round is going to catch up on us this season. We will be very fortunate to reach 6/7 wins. Sorry to be a killjoy but just being realistic.

11 is easily enough and possibly 10 could do it. No panic yet.

Booooooooooo, can't we have just one optimistic thread? I don't care how realistic it is I don't want sensible, logical, stats and facts.

Come on it's Palace literally ANYTHING can happen :p

We won't need 12. Well I hope not. Because we don't look like getting that many.

WBA managed 15 draws the year they won 7 games. We haven't had 15 draws in the last 3 years:D

And most of the wins would be away from home, picking up 3 points at Selhurst has been a rare treat in the last three seasons.

We had 3 points from the first ten games in our first season back up in 2013 (a solitary win under Holloway). The hard working but limited Cameron Jerome led the line that year and there was no Zaha throughout. We won't finish as high as we did that year (11th) but this defeatist attitude when we will have got 4 of our toughest fixtures out of the way in our first 8 games is somewhat premature.

We had the more dangerous Bolasie (an unknown quantity to most prem teams). Now with a fit zaha we are very predictable.

Quite a few overtakeable sides also making a poor start there.

Genius loan forward signing i'm less confident of, but maybe Dougie can find someone somewhere in the world.

Zaha is never predictable. That's why he was by far the most fouled Premier League player last season. If he was so predictable they'd calmly take the ball off him.

He scored none and had 4 assists that season... not sure what you mean by more dangerous

Its doable. If we have got most of the bad shit out of the way early this season and Roy can now start to get the best out of our best players and mold them into a useful side, its possible. A team including most of Andros Townsend, Sakho, Cabaye, Zaha, Fosu-Mensah, Benteke, Loftus-Cheek and Milivojevic should not be bottom of the league. These are all good players that can beat Arsenal and Chelsea recently. Just need confidence and belief and the right system to get them enjoying football like they should be doing.

The point is if there's no other threats you just put three men on him and we're done. He's good but he's not going to go past three (and then provide a quality delivery) regularly enough to create enough chances to win games. Given our chance conversion rate at the moment, we look like needing about 20 clear-cut chances just to score one.

Yeah they will rightly take a lot of confidence from today. Shows we can play without strikers quite effectively. Think Swansea are more than catchable too. Just need to take each challenge as it comes. Newcastle away is difficult, but they are only as difficult as you make it. That system employed today will confuse a lot more worse sides than Chelsea. 1 on the board.

There you go. Win 5, draw 1 and lose 5 of the next 11, and we'll be sitting on 19 points at the half way point, bang on target to stay up.

A few more 'glass-half-full' Palace fans wouldn't go amiss around here.

Other teams are now sliding down the table after picking up early points.

Palace may have lost their first 7 games but they have not lost touch with the teams who are expected to struggle and we gained points on them at the weekend.

There is still a long way to go and Palace are now up and running with still 30 games left in the season.

I hope he does. We will see in January if his wages are well spent.
