Great result and good to be going into Tuesday on a win.
Few observations:
1. What is it about us and not shooting?? Is Wilfred the only one who has the balls to do it?
2. The disallowed goal - it should have gone in 5 seconds earlier, and then it wouldnt have been from an offside position.
3. I personally thought Kouyate was poor and was suprised when Andros was taken off instead of him.
4. Dont bother with the short corners lads - they were crap.
5. Seemed a few arguments on the pitch to me. Wilfred arguing with Kouyate and others and then Wilfred didnt even bother acknowledging the fans when he left the pitch. Unlike Ayhew for eg.
6. Sakho - an enigma. Was only only for 30 seconds when he looked like he was going to make a massive balls up, and then didnt while moving in a spider crab like fashion. The man is back! And Scott Dann looks like he is facing some real fitness issues.
7. Jeff Schlupp - respect for a great finish.
And I had 2-0 Palace at 16-1...cant wait for Tuesday.

Only 7 pages on the game? I'm as guilty as the majority but can't help noticing how quiet the match threads are becoming.

I am a Palace fan living in the north, so went to Burnley and saw a good win for the second year running. Before the game I feared the worst, with Ward and Cahill both injured, Kelly switched to right back, and a barely fit Scott Dann at centre half, with an even less fit Sakho on the bench.

I needn't have worried however as Burnley made no attempt to turn the defence, never getting the ball wide or behind us. They just lumped it forward to Wood and Barnes and allowed our defence to play facing the ball. Tomkins was awesome in the air, ably supported by a clearly injured Dann and then Sakho.

It took Palace at least 25 minutes to work out how to get the ball forward and keep possession, but after that we were much the better team.

Zaha terrified Burnley every time he got the ball in space, ably supported by McCarthur who was everywhere. Kouyate also did many good things, but missed an open goal, instead playing to an offside Van Anholt, and also presented the ball to Barnes for a simple chance he belted over the bar (although the match report on here says it was Milivojevic so I may be wrong)..

A great team effort and a deserved victory.

Is there a harder working player than McArthur in the entire Premier League? Surely his level of effort tires the other team and inspires us.

The reason that this thread is only seven pages is that the usual moaners have nothing to moan about..... we won, well done lads for a great three points, long may the moaners be silenced.

Definitely. Roy got his tactics right and Sean didn't (again). Good to see us playing more on the front foot again as well. Also, Sakho activated beast mode when he came on and hit some great long passes. I really hope he can stay fit as he makes a big difference in terms of pushing us up field quickly.

Second that. Most assured CB that we have moving the ball up field and due to our lack of an attacking mid is very important.

6. Sakho is certainly one that focusses the attention.

He has a very odd way of carrying himself with the hunched shoulders, any one remember Bobby Tambling.
HIs passes are so late it always seems he will get robbed yet most of his passes are very accurate.

Never a dull moment

Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace

I usually chip in but was otherwise indisposed today for once. A relief to get the win

I'd never considered it that way before, but actually I think you're right. What a depressing thought.

Great team effort helped by woeful burnley finishing on 3 occasions.Superb displays by wilf jimmy Mac Tompkins and danns.Scott's distribution was superb something I have never realised was so good and our support was immense which was a complete opposite of the burnley library crowd
