  1. Dreadful Palace performance, lucky to come away with a point, Hodgson's anti-football works 60% of the time but his continued lack of a plan B for when the game doesn't suit it is the reason some of the Palace faithful are losing a bit of faith.
  2. Palace have been shit as well, if we'd deserved a goal Brighton might feel (slightly) less hard done by, but before the penalty they were all over us. Thing is, whilst you'll always take the points gladly there's no joy in winning a game this way, derby or not.
  3. Dodgy penalty, but daft to even slightly wrap your hands around a striker in the box these days.
  4. Nah, it goes back to a load of silliness in the 60's (rivals for Div 3 South promotion, and some aggro at the games) and a number of events at games escalate matters from there, involving on and off pitch elements. The interesting thing is that (barring any changes/promotions in recent years) Palace are/were Brighton's next closest league team geographically speaking.
  5. We had exactly the same debate in last years' thread, it's pointless and tedious. Call it a "rivalry" if it makes you feel better, it's long lasting and intense and matters to us, what other fans consider it matters fuck all.
  6. We are 46 miles apart? You learn something new every day, if only someone had brought that up every single time we play.....
  7. Morning Tedious 0-0 with 98% of possession being in the midfield until the 95th minute, then a last gasp winner for your boys via lumped Sakho clearance that rebounds in off the back of Dunk's head. Today most of all I'm missing going to games with my two eldest, nothing like the live derby day atmosphere for getting the adrenaline going (and indoctrinating them so they don't get influenced by their mates to support a good team)
  8. It's even worse if you support a "lesser" team like Palace, where your games are shown on Sky/BT less often, so you'd end up paying for more £15 matches than the fans of the 'big' clubs. Based on the below (from the last "normal" season), a Southampton fan with Sky/BT also has to pay for 30 games/£450 to watch every game vs 9 games/£135 for a Liverpool fan. All clubs are guaranteed income for minimum number of games, but that doesn't actually mean they get to be shown at least that many times. Most-Televised in 2018/19 season:) Liverpool
  9. Every so often, Youtube reminds me
  10. Vincent Guaita is an exceptional keeper, I have no idea how he get's overlooked by bigger teams/hasn't been stolen from us (yet) I can only assume that his odd insistence on always wearing a short sleeved top is a distraction from his skills.
  11. I miss Eurotrash, this would have been an ideal earworm for them to introduce, translates as You want my cock.
  12. Can't see it, the money we want for him (and have stood firm on) buys a much younger player, with better potential for resale/growth. He's 27 now, and he signed a 5 year contract at an incredibly healthy wage, £130k a week if the stories are true, so combine the age/fee/wages and he's not that appealing an option. I think he was short sighted, and shouldn't have signed the contract if he wanted a move.
  13. Even as a Palace fan, that is fucking ridiculous.
  14. Batshuayi back at Palace, not a permanent solution but we need a striker asap (have done for the last 4 years) so I'll take it, hoping for a couple more new faces before the window shuts, but fuck knows (given our limited ability to get deals over the line)
  15. Palace have royally fucked up the season ticket options for next year (even more galling given so many other teams have put together fair/reasonable options): 1. Buy your ticket and pay in full up front for the season (excluding first 2 games where there are 100% no fans). Games will be assigned by ballot whilst capacity remains below the total number of ST holders. Receive a pro-rata refund for every game you don't get to at the END OF THE SEASON. 2. If you are shielding (even though, officially it's not required/a thing now), pay £200 (£100 junior) to save your seat f

  17. Whyte just got knocked the hell out by Povetkin, all that waiting for a title shot and it's gone in the blink of an eye, he looked pretty solid in the round before as well.
  18. New track from the Bill and Ted film feels like a throwback to the early days (in a good way).

    The Punk Thread

    Random YouTube click through landed me on this banger.
  20. That was a mock concept trailer, a project made by an amateur film maker/fan in 2019 and they've taken that concept and are planning to develop it into an actual series, the series itself hasn't been produced yet.
  21. I'm resigned to relegation this year anyway, at least it's not going to tarnish an otherwise great kit. This years away was a thing of beauty:
  22. No, no, no, no, no, no! (no!) They are all fucking awful.
  23. Still (always) pessimistic about Palace right now... Unless we buy a significant number of new, talented, younger players it'll be a combined bore and shitfest. Hopefully Zaha's (likely) exit will force the board's hand and we'll be buying some fresh attacking players, that way Hodgson may be motivated to have a more interesting tactic than "pass it to Zaha and he might make something happen" Brighton going down with us (us 2nd bottom, them bottom) is my measure of success this season.
  24. They can be pricey, but their specials, one offs and collaborations have on the whole been excellent. I really got into them (as a brewery) during lock down and reckon I spent everything I saved on train fares from WFH on buying beer online from them, I recently signed up to one of their subscription boxes (after being on the waiting list for a bit).
