This long range shooting is a touch overrated. He scored 3 goals in his Spurs career. Had a bit of a purple patch at Newcastle in a very short period of time in reality (he only played a dozen games for them).

The big plus in a season of ridiculous injuries, he has stayed fit and played the most matches of anyone bar Luka. It's also the most games he has ever played in a season.

He does need to chip in with more goals but I think personally his crossing needed to be better and more often as much as anything.

It's like watching a different player from the other year!

He looked lazy and disinterested... this season he is one of those who bust a gut and always gives 100% every week!

Love Andros now. Thought he was lazy initially but you can't fault his effort over the past year or so. Always puts in 100% and does the simple things well.

He fell out with Pardew... and couldnít be arsed... it seems he puts in 100% when he gets on with the manager... his work rate is phenomenal. Just hope he donít fall out with Roy.

Considering Roy picked him for England (where he produced some of his best performances) I doubt it. Just got to hope Roy stays on!

For the people who think he doesn’t contribute much other than hard work

66 - @andros_townsend created more chances than any other Palace player in 2017/18.

Yep. Could easily have had 10 plus assists this last season. Often involved in the build up to our goals, works his bollocks off and was excellent helping out AWB when he got his chance.

Some of the best football we've played since being back in the top tier has involved him imo (admittedly it was mainly in the last couple of months).

I think he's been vastly underrated since he joined.
Not without his faults like every player but an absolute steal from Newcastle imo.

I'm astounded to read that he's played more games (72) & scored more goals (5) for us than for any other team. It would be nice if we could get 5 goals per season out of him but regardless, he does work his bollocks off & seems not to resent the plaudits than Wilf, RLC & even PVA have been getting recently.

For a flair player, he's reassuringly solid.

If he could just improve his finishing he would be even better.

He completely turned me around on him. His work rate and desire are evident every game.

He is what every team needs. Endless energy, endeavour and hard work, provides protection for the full back and supports the forwards. Couple more goals wouldn't go a miss but contributes so much else will always be on the teamsheet. Also looks like he enjoys himself here and is a good fit for us. All we need now is a song-maybe the old Andy Johnson (Andros Townsend) do do do der would fit nicely.

It's the old adage, if he scored 10+ goals a season he wouldn't be at palace.

Although 5 would be nice..

His overall league record is one goal in ten games. However, that does include his time out on loan to various clubs in the Championship and League One.

Spurs was 1 in 17 and currently it's 1 in 14 with us. His best spell was his 1 in 3 at Newcastle.

There is no reason why he can't up his count next season but if he continues to create chances I won't complain.
