Good point well made

 


If untruths and bllshit are allowed to flourish unchallenged the forum will be the worse for it.

Opinions are not facts just because you believe them

They do review for red cards. They showed the elbow on Gallagher again and that would have been a straight red!

Amateur and youth teams play like this or are attempting to play this way currently.

There are more players/defenders who are comfortable on the ball.

Totally correct. My son has done some on-line scouting and football analytical courses. He came across an advert for an U7 team, they were looking for a goalkeeper who must be good with his feet, for distribution purposes
It seems s*** stopping is becoming secondary

I wrote shot stopping but must have auto corrected

That second half, moving Gallagher more into the middle and Olise a little out wider worked a treat, letting him have a run at the fullback. Olise reminds me of Mahrez at Man City, knows exactly when the defender is flat footed to ghost past him.

On the playing side of things, that was always going to be a potentially uncomfortable game. Butland's howler ensured that it would be. Our disjointed first half performance at least didn't result in going further behind.

We had the best possible start to the second half, and after we took the lead I thought we could have gone on to an easy win. That's not The Palace way though is it ?! With the subs that PV made, if Millwall had found a later equaliser, I think they may have gone on to win it.

Overall I was just pleased to see us get through it.

Off the pitch, totally useless stewarding. May as well have not been there. That extended to allowing a mob of Millwall fans to break into our stand straight after the final whistle.

Time travel may not be possible, but a trip to The Den takes you back into the 70's !

Great performance, would have loved to see Rak Sakyi play some minutes.

Disappointing that some Millwall fans acting like morons (chanting against Gallagher, booing the knee etc..) They try to justify booing of the knee saying it is hijacked by BLM and why Zaha refuses to do it. Wilf does not boo anyone when he does not do it so it is not comparable. Even if that was true, it is disrespectful to your team mates who believe in the gesture. People that boo taking the knee, other national anthems etc are just moronic.

There may be some who boo for reasons that I strongly disagree with, including some that could be called moronic, but there are also a good many sound and fair reasons to boo when players take the knee.

Personally, I have become far more concerned about media culture regarding this issue than terrace culture. National media consistently promotes narrative over objectivity and reason, to the point where it still, even now, denies the very existence of any valid arguments against something like taking the knee. For me, the risks therein outweigh the (genuine) risk that morons might be getting a free hit if booing takes place.

Perhaps if the BBC, the FA, Premier League, EFL, sky sports, BT sports etc acknowledged that they rushed prematurely to support BLM in the mistaken belief it was indistinguishable from opposing racism, that they wrongly presumed everybody would agree that taking the knee was appropriate and beneficial, that they actually have insufficient insight and no real remit to throw their weight around so forcefully in complex public social issues, and that, critically, rather than acknowledge any of these mistakes (or even the existence of valid and reasonable opposing views) they instead maintain the kind of forced ignorance that can only exist in an echo chamber, there would be less frustration around taking the knee, and a more useful mature public conversation could take place. It would certainly help me.

Unless you've established each individuals reasons for booing I'm not sure how you can label anyone as moronic, and am concerned that you are contributing to the ongoing oversimplification of this issue.

The flares were 100% in our end. Just along from where I was standing.
Thought our performance and both sets of fans were flat , donít care what it sounded like on the tv , the atmosphere was 2 Bob apart from just after each team scored.
The taking the knee is finished surely, the pint has been made, I wouldnít boo or clap, just donít pay any attention to it.
An overhyped game/day that was Ďalrightí because we won.
We done to them what the top teams do to us, matched us for 80 minutes, then we had a couple of classy moments that won us the game.

Need to play better on Friday night, or we will get spanked.

I was thinking at the time Benteke got 2 yellows (Red carded) against WH for similar challenges.

That Gallagher has certainly got an engine on him - middle of the second half we broke up a Millwall attack at the edge of our box, and a couple of seconds later Gallagher was crossing the half way line & was our furthest player forward.

As we haven't played Millwall in yonks I think we were overawed by the hostility in the ground, we let them chase and hassle us in the first half and we were terrible.
Thank goodness they had few chances.

In the second half we were superior up to our second goal and then, resorted to Hodgson-type with panicky clearances coming straight back and 4-3-3 thrown out.
It is elementary to keep at least one forward up front when we are defending. Taking Hughes and Eze off wasn't the smartest tactics as I shudder when Luka and Reidewald come on causing uncertainty and sometimes havoc in our midst. Apart from one good shot Schulpp went missing. Passing out from the back can be fraught with danger, and so it proved. Andersen seemed provoked and his usual accurate passing was awry. Benteke added nothing, at least Mateta and Edouard look for space.

All in all, for 75 minutes we were mediocre and failed to show our superiority.

Sincerely hope we play much better on Friday night.
