Who gets your Rancid Tomato?
 
Reported in the Sun

"Here's the toughest dilema you could ever confront a Palace fan with!! Goldberg, Venables & Smith sitting in the stocks. Just one big fat rancid tomato! Who gets it??"

Now you decide!
:p

Venables !! As that article went on to say, he brought more Australian planks to the club than you get in an episode of Home and Away.

The Blackadder 23-10-2001 01:31 PM

One tomoto each eh,
I'm sure 30000 Palace fans would be able to compromise and coat all three,
failing that Smith

AddiscombeEagle 23-10-2001 01:32 PM

Definitely Venables, the other two were just Idiots who couldn't organise the proverbial in a brewery. Venables was looking after only himself and did more than the others to try and ruin this club

Goldberg. He was responsible for Vegetables. He was a moron, admitted, but he was a dangerous moron who almost destroyed our club.

Caisterman 23-10-2001 01:50 PM

Goldberg: He started our decline with his financial wizardry, and he was the one who employed Very Terribals.

Smith did help us win the league a while back so I couldn't throw a tomato at him. Goldberg was/is a fellow Palace fan so I wouldnt throw one at him. Now T*rry V*n*bl*s I could throw one at.

It has to be Smith without a doubt. Goldbergs heart was in the right place, it was just unfortunate his brain was somewhere different. Although it is assumed that Venables bled the club dry he only took what was offered, who wouldn't. Admittedly he could have worked harder and been around more but do not lose sight that the demise was off the pitch not on it. He had to part with the likes of Moore and Jansen which did not exactly do us any favours. Smith however got it wrong almost from the start. He always thought he knew best and would not listen to other views, treated players with disrespect, and generally fell well short on both the managerial/coaching front. He was out of his depth (for the second time) and thank god it was dealt with when it was or the long awaited Palace v Brighton would have been this season, in Div 2.

Terry would get it.

DE - Glad All Over 23-10-2001 04:09 PM

Venables (I hate the myth that surrounds him) supported by the global media football comunity who suddenly thought football was cool and interesting after Euro '96.

I would also save a bit of the Tomato for that big fat head steward at Palace:D

Pistike 23-10-2001 04:17 PM

I notice they decided to keep it competitive by excluding Noades!

But of course Tezzer gets it every time.

Eagle of the East 23-10-2001 04:22 PM

Has to be Venables.

While Goldberg was just incompetent, Smith lost the plot.

However, Venables knew exactly what he was doing. Pure evil.

Norfolk Eagle 23-10-2001 04:22 PM

Goldberg lost his pot of gold so he's not likely to get it as I couldn't kick a man when he was down on the dole queue.
Reckon I'd cut my tomato in half and split it between the last two.

2can 23-10-2001 04:34 PM

Last thing I heard Mr Goldberg was looking into the possibility of buying another football club - perhaps the message hasn't got through to him yet!

St James 23-10-2001 05:46 PM

Vegetables gets the fruit.

He is the odd one out. Both Smith and Goldberg felt the pain too when Palace suffered during their respective periods at the club. Venables just smelt the money.

Mmm.. that plank Craig Moore.. and Rizzo:rolleyes::rolleyes:

Ben H 23-10-2001 06:07 PM

Goldielocks has my vote. His ego trip nearly destroyed our club whereas the others whilst doing damage didn't even come close.

Mmm.. Craig Foster and Rizzo wasn't all that.

Then we can move onto Matt Gregg, Bradbury for Shipperley, shall I continue.

sihair 23-10-2001 06:24 PM

Gotta be Smelly Vegetables, some of our older members may remember the QPR/Ray Bloye incident from the early eighties... How did we get our fingers burnt twice?

Why do my attachments not appear??? Someone help !!!

Agree completely. Smith was also quite happy to let Cockerill and Houghton take the blame not long before his own demise, so lost any claim to the 'decent bloke' status he so obviously craved.
