  1. No, no, no, no, no, no! (no!) They are all fucking awful.
  2. 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.
  3. 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).
  4. "Underdogs" (Leicester would like a word...)
  5. He's eating a huge chunk of the wage bill, and is the main asset we have to fund a rebuild, he's contributed nowhere near as much as he should have for the season. We have the oldest squad in the league, and its been on the whole a very poor season for everyone involved, I think Hodgson has been hamstrung with the lack of investment and has worked a miracle this year (albeit a boring miracle), so I see him being in place for the last year of his contract next year. Why the fuck Dyche would want to come to us I have mo idea, he doesn't strike me as a man that would be ex
  6. Roy Hodgson calls out Zaha for his half-arsed efforts post-lockdown: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/53546556 "It's obviously affected him because his form in the last few weeks has really been quite poor considering what he is capable of doing," Hodgson said. "It's a dilemma for the club and a dilemma for him if he is so set on leaving. If he feels he just does not want to be with us any more, that would be sad. "We still like him very much; we can't make him like us. This is a situation that only he and the club can sort out. I don't have an answer."
  7. Pfft, much as I'd enjoy shitting on Spurs season, you'd be more likely to cheer up your afternoon by lumping a tenner on Spurs winning by 3.
  8. 7.2%, and for my money the best core beer I've tried from a craft brewery.
  9. I love Northern Monk, the heavier end (% wise) of their IPA range (Faith and Heathen) and their speciality beers are tough to beat, they do loads of collaborations as well. https://northernmonkshop.com/collections/beer Their collaborations and specials are a bit pricey, but really enjoyable, the core range is reasonably priced so I tend to mostly chuck those in and add a couple of unique ones (I'm now subscribed to their fortnightly box, but there's a waiting list for that)
  10. I might let Palace keep my season ticket refund as a thank you for not making me watch that shite in person.
  11. Commentator - "Roy Hodgson has never lost 7 games in row in the Premier League before" 1-0 Wolves

    The Punk Thread

    Ah man, big part of my youth.
  13. RA did some stuff with Jarv (based on a competition entry), since then I always keep an eye out for him.
  14. They need to continue with it being shit for consistency, annoying and terrible as it is they can't change mid-season. Palace were given a goal at West Ham where Ayew was onside by a ball hair, I can't therefore be pissed about this disallowment. Doesn't mean I like/support VAR, just that I am depressingly accepting of it's shiteness this year.
  15. As a Palace fan: Wasn't a penalty, he poked the ball with his toe before the contact with Zaha's legs. Offside is offside, we've had a few go our way similarly so can't complain. I still hate both decisions.
  16. Even the commentator is discussing how not a single Palace player can claim to have had a good game. It's important not to get in the mindset that Palace should be performing at a much higher level (that's been the downfall of many a team, see Charlton re. Curbishly), but there is nothing this season to suggest we are getting any better at the basic and glaring holes in our performances (basic passing for one). 30 goals in 35 games just isn't good enough, and the players seem to give zero fucks as the squad gets older and older. There's no plan B when things
  17. Fun fact - Palace have had 153 (ish) corners this season, and have only scored from 1
  18. 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.
  19. It's happened early! (James McArthur is injured)
  20. 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)
  21. 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.
  22. To be fair, its karma for the disallowed Grealish goal at Selhurst.
  23. How the fuck is that his arm?
  24. (I'd also quite enjoy a final game of the season relegation decider between you and West Ham)
