Guess we find out tonight if injury news is true or not. Pardew indicated he would play in the u21 game yesterday on sat. Possible he's getting a game tonight instead if fit...

Felt he was our best player in the first half, and made some good runs. Won some free-kicks, but fell over and gave the ball away too much as well. If I was rating him objectively I'd say 7/10. He was also out of position because he was basically up front in a system that didn't suit.

People remember the second half that won us the game, but in the first half Dann and Sako did nothing extraordinary, and pretty much the whole team were 6/10 at best.

Not in the traditional sense, no. But making runs beyond the striker, and running at centre backs he could make that position his.

Bolasie is a big part of that, and we missed him on Saturday.

On back page of Croydon Ad last week, it was about how happy Marouane Chamakh was after injury. This week, it could be the opposite... #cpfc

Will we ever see Cham again?

Very concerning if true

If his hamstring hasned healed after all this time why would another 3 months make any difference,

Hopefully its another injury but I doubt it.

I think Zaha prefers the ball played accurately to feet. Who do you think are our players most likely to score goals if all else is equal?

In fairness to the Advertiser and Mark, this is a reflection of how media has changed over the last 15 years.

You don't have to wait for the Advertiser to print their Friday edition, as there's a constant, unrelenting supply of news online. And that's not even taking social media into account.

In turn, newspapers such as the Advertiser get sidelined as clubs can have a much greater control on what they want their supporters to see and read - look at the club's latest venture. You don't need a newspaper to do candid player interviews as the club can record, edit and publish the story on their own site.

While national newspapers will still have some influence, locals don't. It's a tough gig for Mark but I think he's done a better job of it than most could.

Really hope that this latest rumour isn't true re another setback re fitness for Chamakh. Will be gutted as I still think he is an important part of the jigsaw. Sounds as if he has been putting in the hours in an attempt to strengthen key areas to protect them. Frustrating for him.

Agree with this. I think he gets a lot of stick that he doesn't deserve. Need a tough skin for that game I reckon.

so basically, in your opinion, he won some free kicks but apart from that was not really that great. Not worthy of an 8 then, but I guess he got bonus points because he was out of position in a system that didn't suit him, in your opinion.

Lot of truth in that, but it only explains why they are no longer first with the news, how does it explain the inaccuracies? Desperate attempts to find a scoop or simply a column inches to fill as soon as possible and for as little layout as possible?

A mix of the two, perhaps.

Bear in mind that the company that owns the Advertiser (Local World Media) are absolutely focused on forcing advertising on its visitors - and the only way they can do that is by actually driving traffic - it's not always going to result in accurate reporting.

Especially when, like in the Advertiser's (and in fact most local newspapers) case, budgets have been slashed. I know that in Mark's case, at least last year, he was asked to cover three different newspaper regions himself - so while his focus was on Palace, he had to balance that with coverage of sports news in Kent, too.

Given the choice, I reckon Mark would probably prefer writing great copy about stories that actually matter, or at least stories that are a little more hard-hitting. But that's not in his remit - his task is to produce X number of articles in a day/week/month and to ensure that there's a regular stream of visitors to his pages.
