To cap it all, Palace were still suffering from the Pardew hangover and Giroud scored that sodding goal so beloved by the media sycophants.

Then trapped in North London afterwards waiting to get into the Tube. Never again.
Awful wasn't it.

Unusually for us, we left early. We'd stood for 2 hours in the rain and once Sam made those substitutions, we all accepted there was no way Palace were getting back in that match.

It was the thought of standing queueing in the rain to get down into tube afterwards, surrounded by the jubilant Arsenal tourists, that was the tipping
point.

By leaving early we walked straight down into that station, on to a train and away. We normally stay to the end, but sitting on that tube, coats and shoes steaming away with the damp, we all agreed that we'd made the right decision.
