True. Think Wilf shouldve gone across his man then and another chance he had later on.

Still we will see what January brings
Everyone is snatching at chances. Buying a striker who can score will only do so much when absolutely everyone else is failing to even test the keeper most of the time.

Just looking at the highlights there what impressed me most about our chances was our ability to whack the ball straight at the keeper instead of actually trying to beat him. Do the players think he'll get out of the way or something?

None of them have any sort of strikers instinct. They are all good players but we a suffering from having a very imbalanced squad in terms of a lack of decent strikers. Buy two decent strikers and we'll be laughing. We're that close to being a decent team.

We'd have won 6-0 if goals were another 4ft higher.

We’ve had more shots this season than both spurs and arsenal but we have scored 17 to their 42 and 41. No further comment needed.

We are in an Aylott period when we need Wrights and Brights.

That difference between hope and expectation of chance conversion was so wonderful to behold..... please that it comes again in the coming months.

Ive never felt less confident about a Palace side scoring - even with this level of chances created. Does anybody hold out the remotest hope of a goal each time we get a corner?

Not a very useful stat by itself, believe Cardiff had more shots than us in early December but they were mostly from random distances. How many from inside and outside the box? How many expected goals?

I have a feeling that the returning Wickham and Benteke are going to be our 'two decent strikers' this January window.

Why should we expect a goal from every corner? Only a relatively small number of corners result in goals generally.

It gives an indication that our finishing hasn’t been great.

If you compare the goals scored table with shots table they are almost identical. Except for palace who are 8th in shots taken and 17th in goals scored.

Unbelievable stat that one.
What it also shows is that we are very close to being a very good team
We need a board to support the final step to the next level

Imagine the damage Andy Johnson could do in this team . He'd be well into double figures by now .

Its not just about the striker. Its about the team in general having to computer to score.

Think back to Punch in the Pulis and Pardew days. Regularly scored out only real chance of the game.

Mmmmmm , you may well be right , guess we shouldn't expect the atrocious finishing to change too much either then .
