  1. That's Grealish standing on Van Arnholt surely? He stops with his foot on the ball, then stretches his foot out, looks like he was trying to draw out the penalty.
  2. It's happened early! (James McArthur is injured)
  3. Palace have been shite just as we have been for a large chunk of the season, I can't wait for Roy's post game presser which will ignore the dreadful passing and the fact that he's playing three DM's against a Villa team that's shipping in the goals this season. Expect a substitution around the 80th minute where he brings on James McCarthy for James McArthur, to ensure the blandness continues (and to mildly confuse the commentators)
  4. And you just know that if that part of his body was offside it'd be called as being part of the body that can play the ball.
  5. To be fair, its karma for the disallowed Grealish goal at Selhurst.
  6. How the fuck is that his arm?
  7. (I'd also quite enjoy a final game of the season relegation decider between you and West Ham)
  8. I really think you've got no worries on the Benteke front in terms of goals, he still offers something to the team but he's not magically going to find goalscoring form. I think you'll have a decent chance to pick up 3 points against us, we've had one half decent performance out of the last 4 and that was against a Chelsea side that even West Ham beat.
  9. It's Zaha not Saha. When Arsenal came to Selhurst earlier this season the ridiculous number of fake head injuries the Arsenal squad pulled to waste time when in the lead were all outside the box (I lost count by the end of the game). Maybe the take away from the above is that your boys are just shit at diving in the right place to get penalties?
  10. Zaha's putting a bit of actual effort in today, I'm sure nothing to do with Chelsea being interested in him pre-transfer ban and him trying to rekindle Lampard's interest...
  11. Get in Zaha! We are probably still getting thumped though.
  12. Another Palace error and another gift for Leicester, thank god we got to 42 points already otherwise we'd really be in trouble based on the last 3 games.
  13. Don't worry, we've been terrible and our keeper has gifted the opposition another goal after his howler v Burnley (before lock down he was outstanding, noone can work out why he's gone all 'Joe Hart' on us)
  14. Problem being that the addition of rum to Ting is pretty much impossible to resist, ruining it's place in an 'alcohol free' thread.
  15. Fuck me, dreadful from Palace. I used to joke that the apocalypse would arrive before Hodgson unveiled a plan b, and here we are...
  16. Palace/Burnley tonight for free on Amazon. With both teams staring mid-table in the face there's not much to play for, it's either going to be an utterly dreadful 0-0 or a moderately more entertaining scrappy 1-0. Zaha looks like he's out for us, so I'd stick your money on 1-0 Burnley (90th minute in off someones arse from a poorly delivered corner).
  17. I can't say 100% either of us is right/wrong, but I do think the clubs have a better view on the financial feasibility and I think only 2 or 3 chose to argue the case to resume in League 1 which is a very small number given the numbers affected in terms of relegation and playoffs. I do completely agree that the entire set up of football stinks, and that it should be possible for clubs further up the chain to fund it (and the leagues below). I have one friend who works for a National League South side and another who plays for the same team, both are in real trouble (th
  18. You makes some valid points around things that could have been done better, and I'd agree the state of the higher ups is disgusting in terms of the differentiation in support/treatment. The estimated costs per an article (from a quote from Gillingham) is "The reality is for us to finish the season would cost between £350,000 and £500,000 for each League One and League Two club." If we accept that the league/EPL isn't going to provide cash to support teams (and at up to £12 million per league it is a big ask) then if that's the investment involved for every club then it
  19. I appreciate the frustration, but the infrastructure needing to be put in place in terms of technology and medical support as well as testing would have been a prohibitive cost with no guarantee of coming close to recouping for many clubs. The concept of paying for streams, when the product (in terms of presentation, number of cameras etc.) is going to be a distance away from the usual standard of televised/streamed football is also going to limit the amount people will pay, and given one stream covers a household of fans you are limited even further in terms of numbers, it's ultim
  20. Palace V Bournemouth the first BBC Premier League game ever (one to bank for future pub quizzes, if that's ever a thing again) Means Palace should be (with Bournemouth) holders of the record of highest TV viewership of a EPL game (currently 4.04 Million), we will hold that record for precisely the gap between that game and the next, more exciting game on BBC.

    The Punk Thread

    Goldfinger have been putting out quarantine versions of some of their 'hits' and the results are pretty decent:
  22. This seems like the best place for this (my current ear worm):
  23. I saw them in Brighton at 16 at my first non-local gig (small festival), as someone whose taste veered towards punk and hardvmcore, I would always find space on my mini disc for them.
