Palace bid to postpone fails

Crystal Palace have failed in a late attempt to have next Sunday's Hawthorns centenary match called off.

The Londoners asked the Football League to postpone the lunchtime clash because they are without three players due to international commitments.

But League bosses have turned down the request as striker Mikaael Forssell, who is away with Finland, does not qualify because he is on loan from Chelsea.

The match, which starts at 1pm and is live on Sky TV, will go ahead 100 years to the day Derby became the first visitors to The Hawthorns.

"Palace wanted the game called off because they have players away on international duty," explained Baggies secretary John Evans.

"You need three players to be called up which I understand they have. But Forssell, who is with Finland for the World Cup qualifier with Albania, does not qualify because he is on a year's loan."

Evans is hoping for a healthy turnout to mark a very special anniversary in the club's long and proud history.

Britain's highest ground, 542 feet above sea level, The Hawthorns has been Albion's home for the last century and Evans can see no reason why it shouldn't continue to be for another 100 years.

"Will Albion still be playing at The Hawthorns in another 100 years? I don't know, but I don't see why not," he said.

"I'd like to think it will be although I suspect it will look a bit different with a retractable roof and an artificial pitch."

Middlesbrough boss Bryan Robson will help get the centenary celebrations underway in two days time.

Robson is among scores of ex-Albion players to have played more than 100 games for the club who have been invited to a special dinner at the Copthorne Hotel, Brierley Hill, on Thursday.

Many members of the 1954 and 1968 FA Cup winning sides will be present while some of Albion's longest serving supporters have also been invited.

"It's going to be an Albion family party," added Evans.

That's a good rule, then. So, the loan player you signed to cover (presumably) a position you feel weak in can be called up for international duties, yet doesn't count as one of the three players you need to have called up in order to get a game postponed...hmmmmmmm

But are we surprised? It wouldn't make any sense for them to have rules that made sense now would it?

And Brett, at least, is probably over the moon that we're going to start a game without Forssell on the pitch.

I think there's more to it, that the reason given by the Baggies bloke.

After all, Palace could have pointed to the fact they have Lee Kendall out on loan at Barry Town and he's been called up to the Welsh U-21's.

I hate postponements. Given that only one of the three is a "regular" anyway, I don't see how we could justifiably want it re-arranged.

Let's see if the Baggies can find as many balloons/confetto as we did Sunday.
