right now…england without a shadow of a doubt.

lets face it either palace or england winning something is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

if you had asked me the day before the 1990 or 2006 fa cup final i would have said palace.

however right now i would take england on sunday over another 10 years of palace not winning anything!

Good post. As a Palace fan I’ve always felt England was my only chance to actually have a bit of footballing success.
Tomorrow hopefully.

even when england had the “golden generation” you always thought they would f*** it up, i even followed them all over europe in the vein hope i would get tickets for the “money games” that never happened.

there is something different about this group of players…its like they inow what they are doing.

Agree 100%. This lot don’t seem to take them selves too seriously, even the squad players seem happy.
Foden, Sancho and Saka look like they are playing over the local park. Grealish acts like football is getting in the way of him getting out of his nut and nicking a few birds. McGuire was at the World Cup watching the England team , with his mates a few years ago.
The full backs are all great, wouldn’t be bothered which of the 6 were to start. Pickford plays better for his country than his club, over the years it’s always been the other way round.
Southgate has got it like it’s a club mentality, I wouldn’t be overly keen on him being Palace manager, but for England he’s a great fit.
If you can’t get on board with this lot, you never will.
Even if it don’t go our way tomorrow, I’d fancy us in the World Cup in 18 months.
I went Wednesday. Still buzzing unbelievable experience, roll on tomorrow

this with bells on…this team has got the country bouncing with excitement, god, after the past 18 months alone we deserve it.

if palace won the league cup and got relegated 12 weeks later our fans would be toxic and would bay for blood.

if england win tomorrow the country will cherish those memories for years & years.

I love the national solidarity that England's success brings, but it's always club over country. Every time.

Silly question really on a Palace fans website. Having been at all 3 of our FA Cup finals they really are special occasions, especially 1990 when it was still massive and not just a side show to the premier league.
Hopefully our new gaffer will take it seriously like Pardew did and we’ll get another shot at it

Given the choice, I’d have an FA Cup for Palace.

I’d go further.
Given the gift of time travel, I’d swap the 66 World Cup victory for Palace winning the 1990 Cup Final. Even though it would upset my Dad who was at Wembley in 66.

Purely hypothetical, I know, but intrigued by your response and value judgments.

This is exactly the mindset (along with the majority on this thread) that has resulted in a barren 55 years at international level and exactly why Southgate deserves great credit for changing that within this group of players.

I'd definitely take Palace survival in the Prem over an England win!

I've wondered why for many, many years as an avid football fan, why it is I feel very little passion for my home national team. Sure it's great for the 'feel good factor' of our country but personally it really doesn't bother me in the slightest if we lose this evening. Compare that to watching Palace in an important game, the twitchy nerves, sweaty palms, willing us to score or defend a lead - well, there just is no comparison. However, reading posts on here today, seems I'm not alone.
