I always seem to hold a bit of arrogance when we play Burnley. I can't help of just thinking of them as a 5h!t footballing team, from some misery up north playing off a shoe string budget with the same line up they had 5 years ago, which I would still struggle to name. Never bodes too well and a recipe for consistent disappointment and resultant disillusionment with the world.

Having said that, we did only play a couple days or so ago, they are a potential banana skin and we are still in transition to a certain extent.

Would also point out that Norwich look 'ddomed', Watford need some miracles in the remaining games, Newcastle still dubious, Brentford looking bleak, Everton in disarray and should by all logic get hammered by City this afternoon and finally Leeds, Leeds have shipped between 4 and 5,000 goals in their last few games and struggle to see what answers they'll be able to conjure up to arrest their plummet.

We are 11th in the table, two places above Leicester, have a more youthful looking side now, a coach I am inclined to believe in and the future certainly looks more optimistic than seasons past. I'd suggest we enjoy the battle within mid-table obscurity as we look far more likely to be involved in that then a relegation scrap. We've been through far worse seasons past.

Wished for 3 points, got 1, still in the Cup, mid-table, good players, good manager and weather set to improve! I suggest those of us that still have some keep our hair on, times are tough in Europe but COVID is on the decline and weather semmingly on the up as we approach summer. Never like to see infighting so please don't get too caught up in that, stay safe, stay happy and stay PALACE!! - EEEEEEEEEaaaaaaaaaaaggggggggllllllllleeeeeeeessssssssssssss!!!!

Good stuff.

Nice one Nic, well said. I hoped for 3 points too, but we do need to keep a sense of perspective in these troubled times. It was only a game of football after all.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

I dont think he likes any of the strikers, Benteke i can understand but Mateta and Edouard He Bought, Strange, i can see 2 of the 3 leaving in the summer

you do want us to win games ? 'us' being Palace.

Yes well perhaps if Benteke was playing we’d carry a threat at set piece, instead of looking utterly toothless at them. Perhaps we would t have conceded from the corner v watford. Perhaps he would’ve got on the end of the cross that Mateta watched flash before him. Who knows.

Yes I want us to win. Not sure what your point is.

Plays reasonably well but scored an OG and got hooked on the hour? I don’t think so.

We looked weak after he went off because Schlupp dropped to CM and was a passenger. Really poor selection by PV today and backed up by poor subs. If Kouyate had started I think we would have won today

Nah.

Yes, Benteke was given a new contract before PV arrived, but I do wonder how much say he has in he players coming in. Is he merely the manager and player recruitment is done by Freedman.

I must admit I was bit mystified by us signing Metata permanently. Unless it was a ploy to sell him on for profit in the summer given St Etienne ? really wanted him.

Given that Metata, Benteke, Edouard and Ayew were all the bench today, I also wonder if he would prefer a very quick striker. Hence the effort to try and sign Nketiah.

That ones on Viera all day long. Luka before Hughes or Kouyate is just weird and dropping Mateta after the other night another strange one.

We are playing Stoke in the FA Cup on Tuesday night with a chance to hit the 1/4 finals. We are safe in the league so players were rotated.

It’s a squad game.

While I came away from that game disappointed that we did not get a deserved win, it’s worth noting that none of Norwich, Brentford, Watford or Burnley have managed to beat us.
It’s obviously important not to lose these games and we have achieved that objective.
There are areas for improvement such as the delivery of the final ball, but we are playing some good stuff.
We seemed to have some good opportunities in the second half on the right hand side, but from 70 yards away I couldn’t work out how close we were to the balls rolled across the box.

Yes, i think he wants Nketiah, we dont know what the Mateta deal was, The 15 game thing was just journo rubbish, his price was 13m then 8m, But he seems to like him best, but the Edouard one is a mystery, as i have said in order i would rate Matete 7/10, Ayew 6/10, Edouard 5/10 and Benteke !/10 that is as a CF only

Another baffling starting line-up by Vieira. Don’t get it at all.

I’m with you, and so it proved! Luke his usual inept self, the only time he put the ball forward was into the goal. No target man. Poor formation but improved after the substitutions.
