Lack of investment in the team, no ambition beyond simply trying to stay up, loanees and free transfers cobbled together, ageing and injury prone, no upgrade to the stadium. Will still travel away to support the team, but seriously thinking about giving up my season tickets next year - beginning to feel that the directors are taking the mick.

Come on. I'm not the oldest Palace fan by any stretch of the imagination but even I know we've never had it so good. Some fans are still singing songs about a previous chair's mother!

Things could be better but God they have been a lot worse. Not anywhere near the R zone as we start the new year and you wanna start a boycott? Not me.

I love coming down the Palace. Always have. Great the way we sing so much. The only thing that disappoints me is why we donít have 5 times as many youngsters jumping up and down in the fanatics. The other day vDerby I went in the White Horse for a change and the Derby were all jumping up and down and out singing the Homesdale. Parish has done a bit to bring it on but moreis needed. So donít boycott just get in the mood and join in. In the Arthur itís good too but they closed it for Palace last week. Iíll be there on Saturday though.

Where is RB cover and please don't say out of position Kelly.

The squad is not paper thin, we have a freak injury situation with about 10 players out. Apart for wingers, we have cover in every position.

 


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

Also, where is winger cover and left back cover or are we saying that Schlupp is both of those? Riedewald is not a full back either. Cobbling a side together is not the same as having proper cover for positions.

This disgusts me the rubbish that fair weather supporters come up with!

I think it is totally wrong to accuse someone of being a Ďfair weatherí supporter. I look at a sold out ground and think great. I listen to the sound of people getting behind the team, and I remember back to a Paul Hart side that gave everything but was terrible. I watched them home and away, and I wrongly screamed from the terrace that he didnít know what he was doing. I canít get to games any more, but I donít look at the ground full to the rafters and think where weíre all these people on piss wet Tuesday night in the championship.

Take a look at yourself, accusing a Palace supporter of being anything other than a Palace supporter. I can understand that you might not agree with someoneís point of view, my feeling is that a Palace ticket is now such a highly demanded commodity, with no increase in capacity made in the last 10 years that there is little incentive from the owners to take risks with their money. Sadly our Palace loving consortium has broken up and been replaced with business minded owners who see profit first, and want solid returns on any additional outlay. I have faith that they will invest when they see an opportunity of a good return.

This is the perfect season for them and will mean they should be able to turn a very good profit. Iím not so sure I want to see different owners, but Iím not sure what that will look like. Some of the money that comes into football is shady and a new owner could go either way. Heaven knows we have had some shocking owners in the last 30 years.

Iím glad people question the money that they into the club. The club doesnít need everyoneís as it appears that it is ticking over nicely at the moment. Iím certain that season tickets, and hospitality will all be sold regardless of who takes up the capacity. Hopefully if we all save some now if the club needs it in the future we can put it in then. If a side akin to Paul Hartís one ever turns out at Selhurst again I suspect the owners and management would be grateful for it.

Already decided to give up my season ticket, been to 3 games this year. Just bored of seeing the same players struggling with the same thin squad year after year.

I earnestly feel that the plain facts are that the owners will 100% not risk our finances. There is zero chance of speculating to accumulate and without considerable philanthropic investment a la Man City, Chelsea or Bournemouth, our 'situation' will prevail.

It cannot be argued that the entertainment factor at Selhurst is very poor. Love it as I do, Selhurst is a decrepit, pre-1990 relic with shocking and expensive food, drink and service. And with less than one win in three since the start of last season and an average of 2 goals per game (us + opponents) it makes me wonder why I pay out for 4 STs and travel from Swindon every game. The truth is, I love Crystal Palace with zero rationale. It is my religion, my blood, my history and my dreams. I cannot escape such a truth but I do wish, with all my heart, that some modicum of improvement could be made either on or off the pitch.

Where is the management's incentive to bring in better food and offer a better service if people are happy to keep buying their second rate offerings

WTF?! I meant that I love Selhurst, the memories, it's where MY team plays. I do not love its decreptiness and I never buy food or drink there.

The second half of August you mean; that's quite a narrow definition of "too many".


no I mean the WARMER MONTH of summer, the winter games in Newcastle are not so appealing whan your 80, try it if you ever get there.

Why don't you try and address the issues raised instead of abusing. List the REAL reasons to be optimistic right now?


and why don't you list last the last seven seasons we have been a yo yo club in the Premiership, by my memory we have been here 7 years.
Any of the top 6 clubs can be relegated any season, nothing id guaranteed
And why don't you try to appreciate what we have instead off wishing for championship football again

There's no way I'm boycotting. I've been a Palace fan my whole life, through good times, bad times and administration. We've had a tremendous season so far, exceeding expectations with a squad devastated by injuries. Personally, I don't give a monkeys about a new stadium, I actually like Selhurst Park. I also think that Parrish and the board are doing a good job.
