  1. He's got the hump because he isn't getting his move, second half of last season when he came back from his injury and it was consistent brilliance game after game, but this year you can't even blame the 3 men marking him every game or the rotational fouling for his drop in form, he has a habit of being given the ball in the corner and stopping before trying to take his man/men on, he's having minimal success with this tactic and it really breaks up the rhythm of any attack. He's been brilliant over the course of his Palace career but it's sadly time to send him on his way, the issu
  2. Well that was a terrible, then excellent final 8 minutes...
  3. You jinxed us! To be fair, we'd been getting away with daylight robbery until then, Palace being Palace if 3-0 up at the Etihad with 5 minutes to go I'd take a draw if offered. Re. the VAR, it's so tough to know, I would have chalked it down to one of those things if given but I think that's a symptom of the inconsistency/lack of clarity on the rule itself.
  4. In other Palace V Arsenal news, some Palace fans nicked DT from Arsenal Fans TV's hat when we went to the Emirates earlier this season, and it was presented proudly on display in the Holmesdale stand today.
  5. Faking a head injury isn't diving, Palace dive, Palace waste time, we aren't morally superior, my "poor little Palace" was a reference to your condescending "be grateful for your point." This can't go anywhere really, best we agree to disagree.
  6. Absolute garbage, the level of head injury fakes and time wasting was embarrassing from Arsenal, the rest of your post is irrelevant whataboutery. But I suppose poor little Palace should just be so glad that big old Arsenal deemed us worthy to gift a point...
  7. Wishing the Arsenal players a speedy recovery from all their many, serious head injuries that required lying on the ground at times when (coincidentally) Palace were putting a good rhythm together.
  8. At Palace our cats are made of butter.
  9. The most Palace thing at this point would be to concede.
  10. I don't have the benefit of TV replays (at the game), but Arsenal's shithousery seems worse than Palace's.
  11. It would seem Arsenal are doing enough diving for everyone.

  13. We (Palace) deserved nothing from that game and were utterly dreadful, that must make the VAR element even more galling from a Norwich perspective.
  14. Palace do the double over West Ham via an outrageously good late goal by Jordan Ayew. My kids are going to have an unhealthy view of life as a Palace fan after this year, might not renew the season tickets and let then exit on a high!
  15. Palace's 2020 calendar has Zaha as January, almost as if it putting him in later in the year would be risky...
  16. He's not been overly kind about you over the years, I cant see it happening myself. As sad as I will be to lose him, we need to get on and build a less one dimensional team (and get some younger players in the team), given the healthy points position we are in (which will hopefully be better by mid-January), this might be the least risky time to let go, we can get a loan or two in to get through the rest of the season with a well planned rebuild in the summer.
  17. You really should have destroyed us, we were garbage until Hodgson brought Meyer on as a creative outlet to 'unlock' Zaha. I'm not looking forward to the return fixture at your soulless plastic bowl, although if Arsenal are on telly the same night most of your new "fans" will be absent
  18. That was a bigger robbery than the one at Tamara Ecclestone's house, Brighton fans must be fuming that they didn't finish us off in the 70 minutes we were utter shite. Zaha playing well again now January is rolling around, I just hope we reinvest the money wisely...
  19. Palace's first half dreadful, this is going south quickly, 32% possession at home FFS... I'd stick money on 2 - 0 Brighton, Dunk (twat) 49th minute and Murray in the 83rd.
  20. I'm nowhere near old enough to be connected to the really lairy days (70s), but by nature of being a Palace fan have been conditioned to despise the scumbags from the south coast. It's never middle of the road, it's either a dreadful game devoid of much in the way of entertainment or enjoyment or an absolute belter. I'm hoping for another one of these (was dating a Brighton fan at time and sent her regular text updates, the relationship didn't last...):
  21. Everyone excited for the M23 derby tonight? Palace are currently decimated in terms of defenders, and with 14 goals scored this season (second lowest) best I can hope for is an incompetent Brighton performance and for us to nick a goal. Should be a cracking atmosphere, only taking one of the kids as the younger one struggled with the Bournemouth night game and this is a bit later, the eldest is pretty excited.
  22. Can't see it myself as I'm not sure they'd want to risk a Ruiz shot connecting (by luck or skill), a second defeat to a fairly limited boxer like Ruiz would be incredibly damaging to the AJ gravy train. The lack of entertainment makes it a hard public sell as well, I reckon you are more likely to see AJ up against a no-mark where he can chalk up another big knock out and get the hype train accelerated before heading towards a big fight (against who will depend on the next 6 months)
