Fast Eddie was a few years later

Good spot!. Eddie wasn't as tough a tackler that's for sure

None of them were past it in the 90/91 season when Young came in the summer of 1990 and we finished 3rd in May 1991. Solid and hard defence with a lethal front pair. Sounds like an Essex girl.

Agreed. But I was referring to the Premier League only - which started 1992/3

Looks all a bit desperate at times, but it's great to see someone standing in the box. It's not that complicated!

I think this has the makings of one of the best all time
in terms of central back pairings and goalkeeper. Not sure if it betters Martyn/Young/Thorn in 1992/93 as far as Premier League years - although Young was past his best by then

Earlier competition would be the Burridge/Cannon/Gilbert and Jackson/McGoldrick/Blyth

Of course, they have Kouyate and Luka as predominantly defensive midfielders in front of them which helps at one end and hinders at the other

Young and Thorn were great, probably the best partnership in the old Div 1, but they didn't have the LB and RB that we have now, though i cant remember who they were to tell the truth.

we conceded a goal, at Selhurst, from a weak Sheffield ....after 20 seconds.

Olise/Eze got us out of jail. Ayew has always been very motivated in both attack and defence.

However, the 'keeper & back four ? not good enough. And whether or not that problem is manifest at Mid-field.....opinions please.

our leaky defence will be the death of us.

Well, this has been resurrected from the threads of the past, the last post was on the 7th January 2019 before today!

If you really want to see how much everything changes and stays the same with our collective posting/moaning, cast your eyeballs on this lot...

Cannon and Gilbert for me - neither got the the International recognition they deserved..!!

They also had two very good fullbacks in King Ken and Doris..!!

What would they be worth in todays mad market..!!

Gilly along with Murphy were personal faves of mine in the heralded team of the 80ís under Tel..!!

i was hoping for us to discuss Palace Defence....February 2024.

you know, preventing baddies from scoring against us, and all of that.

if some of you grandads wish to reminisce about 'da good old days' while supping a pint of mild, and polishing your dentures with a shammy , could yis all feckoff and do it elsewhere.

Looks to roughly equate to Doucoure being injured.
