Not one of them kicked big nose up in the air when he fouled milivojevik either. The twat wouldn't have lasted another minute if he had done it to the 1990 team.

I can't think of one player in our team who i find entertaining as a character.

No one celebrates with any flair or makes a connection with the crowd when they score - mind you, many of them will never score an actual goal.

Wilf used to have character when he played but now he just sulks and picks arguments.

Guita seems to be a bit of a interesting character but that's it.

Ayew is miserable. Benteke is miserable. Wayne is simple and does Nazi salutes. Ward is nice and christian.

Never felt so apathetic towards a group of Palace players, I see them for their merits in being part of the system, but have no bond with any of them.
Are you the most boring and devoid of character poster on the BBS?

Who? Provide reasons why you think so. I just see a bland bunch of professional athletes that dont really care much about anything beyond their paycheck & glove compartment, one or two exceptions apart.

By the way, as far as I’m concerned, the real Alan Lee was a mindless thug, never forgiven him for his assault on Jedi at Huddersfield.

If that is the type of character you are looking for, perhaps smallwall are more your cup of tea?

How on earth does anyone know what our players are like as a group anyway?

This is easily the most muti-national group of players we have ever had, with completely different cultural and social environments to the majority of previous Palace squads, so I find the OP a bizarre statement anyway.

The annoying thing at the moment is that the way we are playing means that I am struggling to be excited about how well we are doing.We have had an excellent start to the season for us but 2 of the performances have been pretty horrific and we are very boring.It's frustrating because this is as good as it gets for us in terms of results.This is an excellent Palace team and the manager is doing a great job,it's just unbelievably dull 90% of the time.

Does anyone remember (I reckon it was around the early 90's) when football went through a 'where are all the characters' phase? Everyone kept repeating it like a mantra, although it was probably a load of crap.

The OP obviously overlooked Andros "I'm not a drinker, I can't dance and I'm afraid of the dark, that's why I've never set foot in a night club" Townsend - a true Palace character and all-round good bloke.

C'mon, Jedinak could and would dish it out himself on occasion. Not like Lee was bullying a weaker player or anything. Far worse was the WBA player who did Speroni.

A bit of fun? If that post was your idea of fun, maybe it's not the player's characters that need looking at.

Strangely enough, a Gooner was telling me last night that she looked at our players on Sunday and wished her team had half the determination, strength and commitment of our team. She said most Arsenal players were too busy stroking their hair and checking they looked good!

Not sure the point of this thread. Let's face it if we had another creative player in the team apart from Wilf everyone would be more excited. But on the flip side this is probably our best start in the premier league era, so the argument to fiddle with it seems a bit stupid.
