Just the point I was making in my email to club glad to see others feel the same way:

The group hung a banner outside the training ground that read: "Palace pandemic of apathy. Change this mentality. Restore the pride, ambition and vision."

The banner was accompanied by an open letter, published on Twitter, that criticised the club's "safety first" approach to games.

The statement read: "Losing games without a fight, flair players shackled in negative formations, a lack of leadership and pride on the pitch. This is not the Palace way.

"Our 'safety first' approach is being exposed and our spineless defensive tactics show no ambition or vision. Unused spaces on the subs bench instead of adding youth players to the first team bubble highlights the lack of inspiration.


"'Consolidating' just above the relegation zone with no plan for progress is not sustainable and breeds a negative atmosphere. This and the continued for cup competitions shows a lack of respect towards supporters.

"We must re-evaluate our long-term vision and use this opportunity with so many expiring contracts to make substantial changes across the club to rebuild with the spirit and mentality of the promotion squad."

"Committed winners fighting for the shirt, attacking football and youth put front and centre - at the very least given a genuine chance. A transfer policy based around young, Championship players and others desperate to make an impact, not overpaid 'marquee signings'."

"Restore the positive values and together we will push forward. Anyone not aligned with these should not be involved.

"The committed supporters deserve better. The club is sitting on huge potential but apathy is limiting ambition.

"Brighton next Monday will expose those who care and those who don't."

There is a clear and obvious plan.

Try to minimise spend on the team until the Academy starts producing some diamonds. Hold our nerve for two or three years and then just maybe we hit take off. Spend the money we have on the future

Frankly itís stunning the progress the Academy has made.

The same tactic Arsenal used with Wenger to get its stadium built.

I just hope it gets us going for Brighton.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Good stuff
It validates how I and many others feel on the club and the direction or lack thereof, that it is going in.

If fans were allowed in stadiums, booing would be heard many a times already this season and even more louder in recent games.

The last 3 games that we played (Burnley, Leeds, Newcastle) started with us conceding within the first 5 minutes. For a team that lacks goals and attacking threat and even more so without Zaha, That's surrender football!

This is hopefully the full wake up call to draw attention to the board to act swiftly and decisively as Mr Hodgson cannot be at the helm come next season (and arguably should be gone now)

Think Ultras stood up for any true Palace fan. Well written - hope someone with power takes notice.

We wont see the effect of the new academy for 5 or so years, the current U18s and U23s were here before this season so are the result of our previous academy.

A very dangerous game for a club like ours. Arsenal did, indeed, do this but with their squad, they were never going to lose their PL status

That was Holloway before we lost 0-3 there in Championship.
