Slapping (metaphorically) Howe's smug chops on the last day of the season will fill me with an enormous sense of well-being.

We did against Middlesbrough and got beat, then the moaners say we don't try in the cup. If he does it this time and lose, they will moan we didn't achieve our highest points total.
That's why he does what he feels is best.

Our squad is an ageing one and we dont have enough money to simply replace them. Our academy players will hopefully play a part as its essential we bring some through.

That's pathetic. Go and support someone else then

Absolutely! Let's give them some game time, grab the win and get out of there (well actually stay and applaud the players in what a been a respectable season)!

Thatís odd logic.

Playing a reserve team for a winnable cup game is different to playing a couple of young players in the last game of the season when there are only two places at stake.

I honestly donít think the vast majority of fans would be critical of Hodgson if he played a couple of the under 23 players in this game.

Roy will do what's best for Palace and we should respect that. Thank god he's our manager and not BBS experts.

A few of you who know me away from the site know that I have a Bournemouth season ticket through work. They are my second team and when we play them I sit there in my Palace scarf to the amusement of the other fans who happily tolerate it. Iíve got to say that I think the fact Bournemouth donít have a mean streak hurts them. They arenít a dirty team at all - arter was hot headed (no longer there), Smith (right back) is a bit snidey and Lermer loves a yellow card but thatís it. I remember one game when they rotated fouls on Wilf and Arter especially was over the top but week in week out thatís not how they play at all.

Iíd say weíve got a way better first 11 than them, I canít think of many players that bournemouth have that I would swap for their Palace counterparts. Maybe Ake at the back, Brooks in the middle and Wilson and thatís it. On the back of that Iíd say Howe is doing a good job.

Eddie Howe does come across a bit smug, I wouldnít argue with that but I think he chooses his words very carefully at all times and tries to keep his emotions in check and very controlled. Itís a shame he doesnít try and be a bit more human in front of the cameras.

PS I of course hope we stuff em

Think youíre getting a bit carried away.

All Iím saying is that I hope we play a couple of youngsters. Forgive me for expecting us to use our academy once in a blue moon.

That money could be the wages of the creative midfielder we desperately need. Or it could enable us to actually buy the midfielder in the first place.

Or nearly £5M quid. You did see our accounts right, we made a £35M loss last year.

Roy has a lot more information available to him than any of us. We should trust him to make the right decisions as to whether to play youth players or not.

GRAND UNION 06-05-2019 09:26 PM

Why do people want to throw away a chance of extra £4m and a record points total? Plus finishing above the spammers yet again, madness!

Hedgehog 06-05-2019 09:46 PM

Was it Wolves who brought on there back-up keeper on in injury time at the weekend for no reason, other than to give him a minute or two?

Pretty sure it was them. I was watching on my phone with no sound.

I know right? Bournemouth are just below us on 45 points they will want to beat us and take our 12th spot. Why on earth would we make a home match, where we already struggle even harder than normal. Pretty sure all of the kids who have a shot of being top flight footballers and who are not 17 are out on loan.

Nuno made 3 substitutions in the last minute of time added on so make of it what you will.

Based on what? We've played our "best team" at home all season and we've been rubbish, so what's the harm in trying something different?

This game is worth as much as any other. If we had beaten Brighton just once this season we'd already have those 3 points, and therefore that 3.8 million.

TheCharmer1 07-05-2019 04:35 AM

keep the team the same as Cardiff, and take the shackles off for the first time this season at home! The money for position is very important for a team our size, and it would be nice to finish at home on a positive note.
