My sister and her husband have ordered something for me from the Palace shop via the net. Did it over a week ago. Nothing in the post. I wonder what it is and more importantly what is keeping the present from arriving ? I am in suspense. Are the shop reliable senders and when am I likely to get my goody ? Anyone ?:confused:

Well yes I would Jza but it is Palace stuff after all and that is so special. I want it and I want it right away! Okay, I'll wait till Christmas day but the thought that it might be winging its way to some football fan from another club or worse to someone who doesn't even love the beautiful game.....well that's too much to bear. sob.

We ordered a top for my brother, it took the club shop 4 weeks to ring and tell us that they didnt have the colour we ordered, then a further 2 weeks for delivery.

:bash: :sob: Thanks for the optimistic tales.

If you want something delivered by Xmas i'd strongly suggest you order it TODAY.

Oh wait, you want it THIS Xmas?!?

I reckon it will be ok Duffle - just like the play-off tickets!

Many emotions will be stirred, be warned! You will experience a slight bout of butterflys about the situation and then a few headaches and sleeples nights followed by outright panic with a slight twist of anger and outrage.
And then...... :D::afro: :D :love: :lux: :D :o :D

It will probably arrive sometime around Easter !

Trust me Santa will come down your chimney and give it to you in person on Christmas Eve, and if you donít believe that, it is about as feasible as the mail man bringing it to you before Xmas!

*Cough* 12 weeks *cough*

At least they did'nt screw up on my order for my kid's home and away Palace shirts yesterday. They were out of stock. The assistant said (with a beaming smile!) they might be in "some time in the New Year".

Great work Palace Marketing!
