I couldn't agree more. It was to be a training ground friendly, that's all. I am sure we could have put a team out but PV thought it would be a better use of Club time to do something else. Why does every little issue have to blown out of proportion ?

How can it have been "literally a non story" when it was carried in various media as a story

It is embarrassing for the club, in as much as they arranged the games on successive days, they were not forced to do it. They have been arranged during the break when our squad was no bigger than it us now.

Actual results in preseason are instantly forgotten and early preseason fixtures often feature loads of fringe players and a few first teamers doing a half at most.

WH for instance are just about the only PL team to play yet and they featured very few first teamers. From memory they got a draw with A Scottish team.

I do agree with this, except this coming season more so than in any recent others we will have virtually a completely revamped first team squad and every minute in pre-season is going be important in sorting our our systems and how players suite in a particular playing style or position. The season kicks of in 31 days (30 for Brentford) and we do not have as yet a settled first team squad in place and we are in a very difficult position even before we have kicked a ball!

Whatever the status of this game, it was arranged and agreed, then cancelled by us. I only know what I've read in this thread, but if, as seems to be implied above, it was agreed without the manager's approval, it's hard not to conclude that we're in a typical Palace mess.

It's just clickbait and look, it worked. We're all talking about it now.

 


Success will lie to you but failure always tells you the truth.

Well we've let a club down late in the day. I hope that bloke with the bell doesn't come up to St George's ringing.

Do you not find it a little bit embarrassing that, having arranged a game against Portsmouth we cancel it 4 days before the game? I am
Not a whinger and support the club through thick and thin but do not like us looking like a laughing stock
