The word "away". Different kettle of fish. We're shit at home because we have to attack teams. Which is a massive problem as we haven't a decent forward.

As much as some entitled fans might think, and I hate to admit it, but Watford are an effective team who are justifiably high up the league. Today does show us the way forward though as we cannot keep blaming missed chances. If the board want to do more than survive they have to provide additional funding.

Miserable ****ers. Man City away, Wolves away. OK, they ballsed it up today, but you know how Palace are, they will probably beat Liverpool next week. Cheer up you bunch of moaning minnies. You've never had it so good.

Not at all. I'd be selling Benteke and returning Ayew though. Enough with this ill fitting stuff.

The football is dire. Two wins at home in 11. Can’t remember being this bored since the Taylor era.

Agreed. Fed up with hearing “we just need a striker”. We need a couple of midfield players and / or another winger who have half an idea where the goal is and give us scope / options.

Seriously? I can think of the first few matches in the PL under Holloway, the crap at the start of the promotion season under Freedman like at Bristol, some of the PL stuff under Warnock and the 4-1 depart against Sunderland. If you want to go back further I recall the third division, the trip back from Cardiff in League 2 in 77 when we sang "we are the worst team in the land", travelling the country in 80 when we were bottom of League 1 with our lowest points total and especially the Mullery years etc. My dad says I'm lucky because I don't remember division 3 south. You don't know how good you have it (only joking).


Late edit. Or seeing us lose by five goals at Oxford, losing at Hartlepool in the cup, the rubbish league cup game in the thunderstorm at Bristol Rovers, travelling to Wigan for a lunchtime game and conceding five and the matches under De Boer.

It's all relative. He's probably got the best squad we've ever had but he's so dull. I couldn't stand him as England manager and he's pretty pedestrian as our manager. Today was a new low.

We also do need a proper fecking striker too. It's blatantly obvious to the blindest blind man.

Don’t panic I’ll be back to my pessimistic best next week
He is largely to blame, as the tactic seems to be pass it into the net which means we are too slow in the final 3rd. How many times do we just pass it around the box, then one player tries an over ambitious pass and we lose it. Anytime we have a break, we decide to hold it up and give time for the other team to pack the box, it’s no wonder we can’t penetrate. Yeah it’s some nice passing in areas that don’t matter but so what if it doesn’t result in goals.

Give me traditional Palace counter attacking football any day, nothing like Bolasie bombing down the flank looking for Murray.

I know it’s obvious to everyone but get a striker in and we’ll be top ten. It’s not my money to spend but it’s so fricking obvious it’s becoming a joke now.

I don't understand people giving Roy a pass because we haven't got a certain type of player be that midfielder, striker, whatever. Why isn't he held to account for what he's getting out of the players we actually have?

I always looked at the likes of Mourinho begging for more players and thought they were lazy because they were already sitting on a good squad and rather than adapt to what was available they stuck with their system and demanded the club spent money on players to fit it.

And now we have a sizeable group of fans prepared to see us spend money to "give Roy a proper chance" when we already have a squad of excellent players (yes with some deficiencies - but I'm merely suggesting we are a top ten side, not a top six one) and we're still having to put up with losing to Southampton at home (which might live longer with me than City away, sadly - one of those was a freak result, the other part of a pattern).

This isn't based on a handful of results. He came back to club management to prove he still had it. He's more than proved that but we must plan ahead.
A novelty for us I know.
Precisely how I feel. But it won’t happen. Parish is way too sentimental to pull the pin, and Roy is too stubborn to admit it. This will rumble on till the end of his current contract.

It’s the finishing throughout the team that’s the challenge

Jordan Ayew is not a center forward and we have two coming back from injury.... 45 minutes each makes perfect sense under such circumstances for many reasons.
Getting back to match fitness, staking a claim to the slot, filling the hole in the team.
