A few years ago Parish stated he wanted us to get to about the same level as Everton, as he thinks that is the achievable long term target.

There player expenditure has been a lot more than us, but two important factors are missed from that simple comparison.

1) Everton's billionaire owners haven't got a targeted transfer strategy. They have a patchwork quilt of big money signing. Our signs over the last 10 years seem to have been more carefully considered as we are not in a situation where we can take fast and lose approach to spending money. £30m on Iwobi!

2) Many of their players hold value, just like with Bournemouth. Where our entire squad would be fortunate to raise £100m in transfer fees, there squad could still make millions in player sales. Using a car analogy. We are buying old bangers which will do a job for a few years before being scrapped. They are taking a punt on new cars, many of which turn out lose a lot of value as soon as they drive off the forecourt - but one or two might become a classic.

Either way, decent performance by Palace. We seemed to be a bit more confident at taking the ball into close proximity to the opposition. Went wrong a few times, but there was an extra threat with the addition risks we took.

I like Reidewald and Luka in midfield, its the best combination we have. Only issue is all our combinations are very slow and can eventually be split. Please play an attacking player with them in midfield.

Also, if we are to play Benteke, don't pass the ball out of the defence every time. Try and mix it up with launching it to the man every now and then and get Zaha, Ayew, Eze in close proximity to latch onto anything he knocks down. It's just to slow and obvious.

With Benteke in mind. Here's a summary of his skills to help decide tactics when he's on the pitch:

Excellent @ Heading.
s*** @ Everything else.

I like the car analogy. It got me trying to think of players that we BOUGHT from another club and subsequently sold on for a higher fee than we paid for them. Not many I'm guessing.

A measurement of the huge achievement involved in keeping our little old club punching above its weight year on year.
We are not always pretty , and maybe Everton, and a few others can claim to be a little better on the eye, but at what cost?
It’s a great shame that the efforts to keep us in the top division on a relative shoe string are not better received by many on these pages.
Not your good self of course.

Came on here expecting to read the usual negative over-entitled "but we can't keep looking back to 2010" and "we play terrible football" type blurb. Thank you gents for some reality / positivity. Some of our one touch v Everton was as good as its get in this league - the best league in the world. A few more killer final passes and we'd be rubbing shoulders with the likes of Everton and Westham - which is about as good as we'll likely ever be on the current model - which I don't want to change btw.

Hate to single him out but what is PVAs role? He’s not reliable defending and has Wilf and Eze wide in front of him. He gets caught out of position too often.

He is there to glue things together [Link]

He was fantastic. Although just as a counter argument, they were sort of all straight at him. Apart from the low one down to his right, which was a super stop.

I'd lean more towards your "fantastic" rather than the "all sort of straight at him." Although Guaita made few acrobatic diving or leaping saves, his positioning and reactions were superb. Any keeper in the league would have deserved MOTM with Guaita's performance.

You forgot the one high to his left, after Richarlison had hit his shot into the ground. Just enough fingertips on the ball to keep it out.
Still couldn’t persuade Crooks to put him in team of the week! Somehow Allison did

Yep, that for me was the save of the match. He kept us in the game until half time. I thought we played better second half.

One of their reviews says it doesn’t work for slime. So that’s a few transfers out of the window.
