  1. I'd gamble on Hodgson beating Anthony Joshua in a fist fight before I'd bet on us finishing 4th.
  2. Watford targeting Zaha as per, wish he didn't have such a quick temper, certainly not helped by Atkinson giving him a yellow card for a Watford player sticking their leg out so he'd run into it (off the ball). Regardless Palace just aren't tough enough for the physical teams, it's an almost certain 3 points for Watford if the temper/style of the game stays the same in the second half.
  3. Took the kids to their first night game, testing their resolve for the big'un against Brighton on the 16th. What a result, down to 10 after 20 minutes and nicking a 1 - 0 in the last 15. Bournemouth were woeful, a better team could have taken us apart.
  4. Bit of an old video from October, but this is quite funny
  5. I don't want my sausage polluted by beans, but like you I like to be able to mix (especially if I have some cheap white buttered bread for mopping up) I've always debated whether a little ramekin of beans on the side would be the answer, albeit I'd be judged to be a bit fancy.
  6. Had some of these the other day, forgot just how delightful they are:
  7. Foul on Milivojevic by Chambers (stamp on his foot). Given Milivojevic gave Chambers a good shove just before, it makes it all the more odd.
  8. Despite my guilt over Palace nicking a point they shouldn't have, Arsenal Fans TV is going to be an absolute treat later.
  9. I can see that it may have brought an inspection, but how they thought it was a foul beggars belief. One if the few occasions I wouldn't feel hard done by conceding a last minute losing goal.
  10. Again Palace on the "winning" side of a VAR decision, I've absolutely no idea how that was disallowed. But at the same time.... Come on you Palace!
  11. December 1984. Poignant photo. This was taken just a few days before Leonard Pearce (Grandad) passed away, filming his very last scene in Only Fools. The episode was incomplete and so never aired. However, it was rewritten with Uncle Albert and became the famous ‘Hole in One’ classic when Albert threw himself down a man hole to claim damages.
  12. How appropriate, you fight like a cow!
  13. In Benteke's first season at Palace he scored 15 goals (which is like 30 at a good team) which went a very long way to keeping us up, I don't think it can be said that he was a bad buy at that point in time. What the hell happened after that nobody really knows, but you can't blame whoever made the decision to buy him.
  14. Just when you think nothing can top Brexit for "Mental Event of the Year"... Palace have agreed a contract extension with Benteke! Quite nice that it was announced in the same week the club have announced they'll start charging fans for reserve matches (gotta recoup the £100k week somehow I guess)
  15. Like most things in football it's opinions, I'd agree there's an argument for both. Interestingly, if we extrapolate your logic then would going back to no offside rule be the ideal? No need to try and interpret when the ball left the foot vs the position of the attacker at the precise moment etc. It would make for an interesting experiment, I know there's the whole historical "goal hanger" argument, but when you think of the pitch space it opens up it could be entertaining.
  16. The above is the perfect example of why the old rules didn't make sense if you watch the live clip rather than a still picture, Zaha has absolutely no impact on any element of the goal he's not in the goalkeeper's sight, he's not even pulled a defender out of position through the build up.
  17. "Crystal Palace sponsored by Frosted Lucky Charms" Come on you Eagles!!!!!!!! Next 2 months of fixtures are horrific, I'll feel better with the points cushion we have now.
  18. So you're saying they taste nothing like a normal Richmond sausage?
  19. Dull game at Selhurst, Palace scoring in injury time rather than conceding the main difference between this and the Wolves game, I think the key ingredient i the success was Hodgson's research of Pukki, he was made to be pretty much anonymous today. Tough run of fixtures now, and no major source of goals in us makes me worry that our current points total/gap from trouble is going to be a distant memory come the end of November.
  20. That brief moment when its 3p.m. and everything might still be ok...

    The Punk Thread

    Ramona, currently playing with Masked Intruder in the states, sounding like a cross between Teenage Bottlerocket and UK DIY punk outfit Martha.
  22. Little bit harsh. The risk is low of it happening, but like all businesses if this freemium model provides revenues/ROI far greater than other endeavours you'd be stupid to not move at least some of your resource across and it's not a simple as suddenly doubling your development teams to meet an (at this point unknown) need so you can run both in tandem A more likely outcome is that you could see the gap between releases of console versions lengthen.
  23. We haven't played to his strengths since he came back and he really seems to have gone from hardworking and frustrated to barely putting a shift in, case in point Zaha played him through and he should have started moving anticipating the pass but didn't react until after the ball was released and was 2 steps away from being able to reach the ball and have a one on one.
