The biggest factor working in our favour this season is that there are so many teams struggling to find form and consistancy in the Premier League.

I also think our line up could look much stronger in the New Year with Murray`s eventual return and some savvy work in the transfer market. The following line-up isn`t beyond the realms of possiblity and I think would be capable of picking up enough wins at Selhurst to stay up....

-------------Speroni

Ward----Gabs-----Delaney----Moxey

---------------Jedi

Bolaise--Bannan--Williams---Zaha

--------------Murray

What a difference 7 years makes!

What a lovely reminder of all the positive mental attitudes this board can produce!

7 points out of a possible 12 in the last 4 games. That's European football spot results!

Pulis has a great base after Super Keith Millen steadied the ship and now we can kick on with much needed confidence with 3 clean sheets out of a possible 4 taken!

I for one am delighted with how we are doing so far this season. Well above my expectations and I definitely believe we can stay up and stay for a long time.

Let's keep it going!!

I found myself unexpectedly thrust into the bosom of the believers camp a couple of weeks ago by virtue of taking umbrage at the assertion by numerous fellow Palace fans that, despite being only 6 (now 3) pts from safety, we had only a 10% chance of safety. Castigated was I, as poster after poster came forth with statistical evidence as to why this was an accurate assessment of our chances.

To their devil numbers I say pish and balderdash! Cast their rotten numeric smells to hell and rejoice as we few, we happy few, we band of brothers stand like greyhounds in the slips, straining upon the start. The game's afoot...follow your spirit, and upon this charge cry 'God for Palace, for Pulis and CPFC2010'.....

A few points from Tuesday which have reinforced my belief:

1. The team spirit is alive and well (probably mainly down to KM) and the new signings have bought into it.
2. We look dangerous from set pieces (or rather 'secondary' set pieces where we cock up the first one but then deliver a killer ball from the rebound - inspired )
3. We look far more defensively sound, though still prone to playing ourselves into trouble in stupid areas. But this got better as the confidence returned.

I think the manager merry-go-round has worked decisively in our favour.

We have brought in a tried and tested seasoned campaigner at this level, yet the likes of WBA, Cardiff, Fulham and Sunderland are relying on men new to Premiership management, and in the first 3 cases, new to English football management. Massive, massive risk on their part. I guess they're holding on to the thought that Pochetinno has worked out so well for Southampton.

That would be a weaker team than Saturdays team.

Even Holloway wouldn't pick a team with a midfield as small and attacking as that (apart from Williams).

A place for the majority of us to take refuge from the insane, machine gun wielding Anders Breiviks impressionists, who seem to be starting new threads with the regularity of toilet trips for tourists in Mumbai.

Some of us are just pleased to be here, you know.

And many more are delighted to be lying in 16th place at the start of March.

And many, many more have the foresight and rationality not to smash our heads against the eject button after a 1-0 defeat to a damn good side.

Let us edify our thoughts here against the madness outside.

Yes Tasty, must admit I only need to read the title of some threads and that's enough negativity for me.
Southampton are a good side and losing 1-0 to them thru only a stupid goal doesn't make us rubbish. The level of vitriol on here against certain players is disproportionate.

Quite. It's the Danny Boys of this world, who don't even go to games, that seem to revel in slagging off the club at every opportunity.

Frankly I can't believe we're still in it at this stage. It's brilliant
