1 Aug 1973, first game of the new season, Palace v Notts County at Selhurst Park in League 2 (now the Championship). Malcolm Allison as Manager after relegation from the Bert Head promotion. Hopes are high with the fans that we'll walk back to the top league with a 'visionary manager' and new attacking style. Result Palace 1 Notts County 4. So it continued until November when Palace won a match at last.

Today reminded me of that past distant day.

Full marks to Parish and de Boer for trying to make change and progress Palace but as so often, Football is a simple game. It's about the players and will always be so. Asking players to do things which is beyond their capability or willingness is foolish.

I expect we will be bottom by the end of October and a laughing stock in the media and if we have any points it will be a surprise. de Boer will likely be released with a cliché statement and euphemism and Parish's pre eminence at risk of being usurped by the co owners.

The third goal today was like watching 14 year old schoolboys. In all honesty Palace were lucky to get away with 0-3.
