Relegation . Could it actually make us better equipped for the next trip back ?

No hiding the fact some major cock ups backstage have put us in this mess , and lessons will no doubt be learned from them. So if we drop would it be that bad ? If we made it back would we be better equipped and a tad more ready to kick on instead of the annual relegation fight that we have had every season since 2013 ? Five seasons of this would suggest we wouldn't, but are we better prepared now or forever destined to be a yo yo club with the odd flash of glory .

No it would make everything much harder

It would cost a fortune we dont have

Wed lose our best players

Wed have the fight for promotion that many relegated teams dont win

If promoted wed have less to spend

If promoted wed have an already massively weaker squad primarily full of championship players

Wed lose wilf 100%

Wed struggle to attract the same standard of manager

Wed struggle to attract the same standard of player

So no, unlikely

Absolutely no

The gap and therefore the challenge gets bigger every year

Out squad would be decimated - too many of our best players would be deemed to good to play in the champ, too many of the rest arent going to stand out at that level and get us back up

Impossible to generalise. For every Sunderland there is a Burnley. People say the gap between the two divisions gets bigger every year - but as things stand none of the three teams who came up last year are in the relegation zone.

We would obviously lose all our 'star' players but if we recruited well I'd be reasonably optimistic - albeit accepting the risk that it could all go pear shaped.

True however we have had some bloody tough games in that. I don't think it will be easy and usually I'm pessimist however we have so much quality and will surely get the points needed. Need other results to go our way as well though. Think Huddersfield are in big trouble.

The idea that the unforgiving bearpit that is the Championship is the place to regroup and rebuild is a naive one.

The other problem is that whatever division we are in. Will lessons have been learned anyway?

Yes. I am surprised more teams don't do it deliberately.

Parish never repeats mistakes so as the OP states "no doubt lessons will be learned"

Wonder whom our next marquee signing will be? And am looking forward to another Academy breakthrough in 2025

As for relegation - a few plus points and not a disaster as the second tier is mostly our natural home these past 50 seasons - but the trial and verdict as to why we find ourselves back there will not be kind to the hierarchy nor a few expensive players

The question should be: Would it actually make watching the Palace more enjoyable?

This season has been such hard work. There has been nothing enjoyable in it at all. Something needs to change

I would agree, in fact I haven't enjoyed the last 3 seasons. I also miss the new teams and grounds as the championship has a 6 team turnaround every season rather than just the 3. The. Club would hate to go down , I would just shrug my shoulders.
