New talents emerging, players being called up for national squads etc. The women's team too have suddenly started regularly picking up decent results as the feel good factor permeates the place. For an old fart like me, it is is wonderful to see.
Also being an old fart, i love it. I know there is a long way to go but i can't wait to see Palace youth products dominate the first team squad again. There is something about our home grown players being in the first team.
