Players and hard work win games they will work hard we will have to match them then our better players can win the game. VAR will pick up any nasty fouls if they decide to go down that route i dont think they will, of course they will wind up Wilf thats a given he must stay calm or he will see red.

They didn’t use it against Bournemouth - partly because Howe countered it - but partly because they played more defensively.
Sorry, but which Championship teams were better than Palace last season?

Bristol City don't seem to be better than us... Perhaps the championship has suddenly lost its quality?

They believe the narrative that we’re basically the worst team in the league and Zaha singlehandedly keeps us up.

But also Zaha is not actually that good and he won't get a kick against their defenders.

On the days we played Brighton about 24 of them.

On the day we played at the Etihad, not so many.

Barring a couple of short stints in the top flight, they've spent most of the last 40 years in 2nd or 3rd flight but recently spent more down in the third tier.
Averaged 26k attendance last season, same as our capacity.

Genuinely interested in what your criteria is for a bigger club?

I'd say we're at worst level in terms of size, but certainly not smaller.
Regardless unlikely a successful manager from a club their size would come to us if successful as there will be a bigger team looking at him if that situation arose.
We averaged 12,000 in the Championship??

Can we show thw quote to Wilf. He won't be happy at that comment and hopefully would spur him and the team on.

...... actually just found the link and it is not too bad at all. It seems to show some respect to Wilf and Palace as a whole.

I think we could take all three points but would settle for a draw.

Let them worry about our pace attack as Man City and Arsenal could not handle it and Palace are one of the best away teams in the Premier League and in pretty good form.

**** me you’d think they were ******* Real Madrid, AC Milan, Bayern Munich and Ajax all rolled into one like they invented football rather than being some rag tag bunch of northern championship cloggers. Let’s see if they still use this poxy system when they’re 10 points adrift come January.

Really helps your argument in pointing the finger at another set of fans for being arrogant and dismissive to write them off as whatever stereotype that comes to mind.

We are just paying them far too much deference. It’s their second game in the top flight in 12 years - we are the established, stronger side here. Let’s not be all meek and timid; let’s go there puff our chests out, deal with this supposedly revolutionary system, and show them we are the boss
