Better strongest 11 than Watford, not better squad. Their backup players are far better than ours.

Food for thought. Some big clubs in that list, and ones you would once argue we should run ours like....

Palace are following the Bournemouth model of spending the TV money on players (including wages) rather than training grounds (Brighton) and whatever Watford spend theirs on. It's a valid model as long as it works. Probably it will for CPFC this season but not for Fulham.

Wonder how they’d fair without Murray and Deeney . We had no forwards till January. Had the two cast iron sending offs correctly taken place things would’ve been different. As someone else said I can our Charlton moment coming.

Sending offs Watford away weed at home and both very early.

Please stop with the no forward. mantra. We had 2 but didnt use one and played the other out of position and ayed several players out of position to fit in with the plan A as we have no other plan or idea

Yet, both Watford and Brighton:

- have smaller wage bills

- have spent considerably less in the transfer market in recent years

- have no "galacticos"

- have far fewer current internationals on their books

- in fact, currently have two Palace rejects as important players in their teams, whom they got for next to nothing

- lack the "Fortress Selhurst" home support that Palace has, yet have vastly superior home records

- are both likely to be in the semi-finals of the cup this year

- have played us five times - and won each game this season



- have managers who have completely out-thought ours on those five occasions, by changing personnel and shape



Discuss

We are currently above Brighton in the table and could well finish above them. Brighton could yet go down. Certainly this season Watford are a better side than us. Whether that will continue next season is not a given though. I suspect Parish will review everything at the end of the season rather than mid-March. We have finished strongly in most of our recent Premier League seasons, so lets see where we end up.

Let's not forget next season there will be no Wilf, AWB, Batshuayi and I'd also guess no Sakho. If we think this year is bad we are in for it next year, as we no the club has no plan for anything other than how to get more money out of the fans.

Brighton and Watford didn't have that scattergun buying policy when they came up as we did.

They have always owned their grounds and not sold a chunk off for a poxy supermarket.

No, but they have massive debts and Sainsburys replaced the Whitehorse a mere 38 years ago. But don't let the facts get in the way of a good story.
