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

Game we should have one against a well below par Man Utd with a great chance missed by PVA A good point but if only we had a creative midfielder to provide some service to our attackers which would then allow them to gain some self belief and get a few goals which are so badly lacking .Palace sad to say irrespective of points gained are boring to watch Men of the match were Cheik Kouyate and Gary Neville for his spot on comments

be fair, they are missing Clattenberg this season!

Eze was getting away from the United midfielders, but kept getting fouled. There were 13 United fouls and no yellow cards incredible really...

It's called professional, when clubs do it to them and others at the top it's called cynical, lots of professional success comes from it.

We were very weirdly back to our very best defensively and completely out of the blue for me, if Schlupp and Zaha were fit and ready to go from the start manure would of been spread out all over the place.

Try another team - really?
Ridiculous statement to make.
I have supported Palace for nigh on 60 years and my rhetorical question was just that - it didn't need a pointless remark from you.

Only listened to the game on the BBC sports app - the commentator (Pat Nevin I think it was) was saying that we weren't looking to involve Eze enough
- when we were looking at "out" balls we were going Benteke, Ayey, Townsend & then if none of them were open we would go to Eze - if thats true then its a bit of a waste of his talent, surely as one of our only natural ball carriers he should be a lot more involved.

I am surprised Eze has got any creativity and attacking flair left in him!

 


Bring back Brolin

I'm not sure if anyone else noticed this, but I think Luka had a huge hand in that point thanks to his "off the ball work". Repeatedly throughout the game he was pushing, stepping on and tripping Fernandes, but nearly always when he was out of possession and not being watched by the ref. It was never anything that bad, but enough to get inside Fernandes's head and disrupt his game, with the little Portuguese clearly growing increasingly frustrated. Without their puppet master United looked really flat, especially with their two holding midfielders producing some woeful passing.

I have given Luka a lot of stick this season as his passing and possession has been awful and his lack of pace resulting in numerous bookings; however, I would actually give him MOTM in what was a solid team performance, as without his job on Fernandes it might have been a different story. While all the pundits were saying United were flat, I think personally that we just realised that you stop Fernandes you stop United.

I would also note that what Luka did is basically what nearly every team does against Wilf (ie fouling him when he's not in possession to wind him up).

There is a certain satisfaction, pleasure even, in Palace upsetting the BBC.

Long may our drabness continue.

That was because United didnít press, as recent opponents have. And the room was there to play in. I agree with just a bit more threat we could have won that. So many of their team, looked off it. They were there for the taking , compared with most years.
