Everyone who goes to Palaces matches knows what tactics we go with, "go for Draw dont get beaten",

And I keep hearing on TV, Palace play the same way, home & away... when other teams are flexible...

Correct, this has been mentioned a million times on TV, radio, podcasts etc.

Roy's tactic does work every now and again away from home. We sit back, frustrate them, get the home crowd anxious and sometimes we come away with a decent point or all three.

Problem is at home when he plays the same way, the negative approach is boring the pants off people. And if we go a goal down, there's no way back.

Maybe we need two coaches, one for home games and one for aways.

Roy now has a worse record than Pardew.

We are now losing games where we've not even given it a go.

If the team was playing half well I'd be quite confident, but they're not and I'm not. What's happened to the team that gave Liverpool a decent game? We're in a serious slump.

Sure a couple of wins could change it all fairly rapidly. I just can't where they're coming from.

You obviously were not at the Sheff United game. We were the better team and certainly did not deserve to lose that game. On another day we could have converted one chance, Guaita would not have made such a rare mistake and we'd have won that game instead of lost it.
Fine margins but to say we are playing badly every week is misleading to those that don't see all the games and frankly not true

That's not correct ... the "better team" would have taken their chances and won the game. We didn't. Admittedly, Guaita made an uncharacteristic error that lost us the game but other than that we were not threatening their goal so heading for another draw. The problem is still our finishing ... or lack of it!

Possession and looking good whilst having it versus scoring goals. They are two very different things. Yes, for large parts of the match we bossed the game but if you canít score it is impossible to win.

They didn't score either, Guaita did. And if the game had ended a draw (fairer result) everyone would have acknowledged Palace were the better team end of. Because Sheff U flukily won its easy to ignore that fact.

As mentioned above, Sheff U didn't score either. Our keeper did

This post has been merged from a topic called 'Staying up!!' by Midlands Eagle

We now enter our winter break,giving another two weeks for injured players to recover and improve the choices available to Roy before we have an opportunity to move away from the relegation pack with potential wins against Newcastle, Brighton and Watford.These three games may well be season defining and are all winnable.
In particular,the thought of beating Brighton away is quite a spectacle.
