Don't Worry Bout A Thing Palace Stay Up With Ease

Just back from the Emirates after witnessing one of the the great Palace away performances and the Palace fans were in fine voice in appreciation of a Palace side written off by many but who all gave everything for the cause.

So nice to hear the Palace fans celebrating another Benteke goal and his fine flick on was seized upon by Wilf who neatly tucked away our second goal.

Palace looked dangerous every time that we attacked and Arsenal were never able to get their usual rhythmic passing going.

Nice to hear after the game Arsenal fans saying that Palace are a decent side.

There are only positives to take out of this game and Roy deserves huge credit for ensuring another season of avoiding the drop when many have had nothing good to say about him.

Starting Benteke over loanee Batshuayi was good management as were the timing of his substitutions.

The team spirit is there to see and this is not a struggling side.

Today's result is up there with the fine away wins at Chelsea and Man City.

Palace now have 42 points with 3 games left to play to add to that total.

WE ARE STAYING UP

I'm just so, so happy tonight. Feels like winning the league for me. I've said it before, but will say again that fans of the bigger clubs will never understand what staying up means to a club like Palace.

The prospect of relegation to the land of empty stands and no money is terrifying to the extent it could scupper everything Parish and Co are trying to achieve. Ecstatic we've dodged it yet again.

It's true that every season up here is a grim, attritional struggle. But I'd far rather see my club struggle manfully among the elite, with all the exposure and riches that brings, than see us back in the land of the living dead.

We're safe, guys, safe. And it means the world to me.

Bring on season 7 of this malarkey, never get tired of 'just' staying up

Some people don't get this staying up lark and those that long for the championship forget how many dull seasons we have had in it and only remember the good seasons. Give me "dull" in this league all day

You've always had to have stamina to support Palace (and this is pretty much as good as it gets)

There's always a couple of cracking wins each season which make it worth sticking with it through the predictable defeats.

Delighted for HD, a true optimist!

Come July we'll be gazing at another fixture list including the likes of Citeh, Liverpool and Spurs. We're rubbing shoulders with, and occasionally beating, the best on offer in what purports to be the best league in the world. I was there when we lost 4-1 at home to Chesterfield in the third tier. We're living the dream, people. Doesn't always feel like it, but we are!

I know HD gets a lot of stick but his posts are a source of amusement over the season.

Would love to see him stuck in a lift with Penstone...

If we survive again next season, then that's as long as we've stayed in any league for over 60 years. I wonder if that's why this sustained period of excellence is seen by some as monotonous and dull.
For me, who has ridden most of the 60 year roller coaster, the thrill of being amongst the best once again, and beating them occasionally, does not diminish. COYP.

Just need to clarify. We can finish on any number of points between 42 and 51 ... except 50

Shock results like today are what supporting Palace is all about as Arsenal went into today's game having won their last 10 Premier League home games and lost that proud record to an injury hit Palace side who fully deserved their fine victory.

What a way to celebrate staying up by beating another top club on their own turf.

can the FYP boys get you on their end of season Podcast? Sutherland will probably be off in Amerca wooing his new wife, so surely they could accommodate hdeagle and pop him on the team for one week?
