The club, fans, ground ... pubs ... have given me 45 years of total and complete happiness ... mixed with desperation, frustrations, agony ....

40 years ago this week, as a 17 yr old, I travelled to my first game in London on my own.

Brentford v Crystal Palace, 13 August 1977
League Cup 1st round 1st leg

Compared to other premiership clubs we seem to be financially prudent this window.

That sort of Palace is positive for me.

I don't like what football is becoming, where we expect our team to spend 20m plus on one player in order to compete and then a couple more 20 millions. When I see a good but not world class player going to Everton for 45m today, I know football has gone mad, and I don't want to see Palace ultimately destroyed by the insanity of it all.
That sounds like a criticism of football in general and not particularly Palace.
There have been a lot of changes which have made it better, but as you have pointed out, some undesirable influences that have taken something away from the beautiful game.
It won't take away our love of the club though.

People will try to argue against that, but it's true. Our atmosphere would be just as dead as the other prem stadiums, unless we made a push for Europe or something as obviously success=noise, a la Leicester.

Sure, our ground could be nicer, but would you rather be Millwall?
Our team could be better, but would you rather be Chelsea?
We could have richer owners, but would you rather be Man City?
We could have more fans, but would you rather be Man Utd?
We could have been more Premier League ready this season, but would you rather be Brighton?

Thought not. #COYP

Going up, going down or going bust.
Never a dull moment at the Palace.

Can't believe the ridiculous, knee jerk negativity elsewhere on the BBS after just one game.
