Palace have spent a lot of money on the disabled facilities at Selhurst Park which is something that has been overlooked.

A lot of money has also had to be spent on the remit of the Premier League such as under-soil heating and some monstrous broadcasting facilities that have impaired the view of the pitch for some fans.

Football isn't a perfect market like some industries. You have billionaire owners who are in it for glory, PR, image or corporate interest reasons. One premier league is the vehicle for a petro state, another is the toy of an oligarch, one is subsidised with a couple of hundred million debt by a gambling company owner and another club got a cheap stadium deal off the taxpayer.

In 2010 we had a playing squad worth 10 million max, now?

The club has been transformed on and off the pitch under Parish and 2010.

Have there been mistakes along the way, of course, can we punch even further over our own weight, let's hope so, but there is no doubting Parish has got far far more wrong than right.

Don't understand how you can come to such a negative conclusion after everything you've just said?

I don't know what people are complaining about. The toilet facilities in the Arthur are magnificent, the concourse is spacious, there are never any hold ups outside along Park Road before kick off and you get a superb view of the tv gantry which enables you to use your imagination and guess where the ball has gone when it goes up in the air. Off pitch the time has now come to prioritise interim improvements in the Arthur

Parish has to deal with Croydon Council on a daily basis.

He has my life long and utmost respect.

While I should've made it clearer I was being tongue in cheek, what a cranky response this is. It's your choice to be a bellend about it though. Made you laugh nonetheless. Apparently.

What's all this about a site for the academy next door to the training ground. Must've missed it. Is it the Kent CC site, that little bit where you see kids play five a side during the day, or one of the sites owned by the banks?

No , it's the Goals site on the opposite side of Copers Cope Road from the training ground.

As the custodian of 150mill per annum coming into the club it would be totally irrational for our second best ever Chairman to not be under a certain amount of regular scrutiny/constructive criticism. Keep him on his toes. Especially as we know now he voted Brexit so is not averse to being a bit blinkered.

No worries, I did indeed mean I am the idiot, and that I should give myself neg rep.

It turns out you can't do that but a couple of people mischievous people have 'helped' me out.
