Don't care where we get the points or where we place. Just so long as we finally pass the 50 mark... and finish above Brighton.

Hopefully United won’t give a monkeys about the last game, just like our last game against them in 1991 when we stuffed them 3-0. Although to be fair, they did have the cup winners cup final a few days later so you couldn’t blame them.

Everton will be fierce but they aren't brilliant, will be nervous, and have hardly any defenders. Not saying it will be vaguely easy but I do believe we have a game that will trouble them if they haven't blown us away early.

I hope, if 8th is possible, we are bang up for it. What a season that would represent...especially given expectations amd the quality of our football

Everton have been playing like they're jacked up on coke the last three or four games and it finally cost them with two reds against Brentford. It'll be interesting if they maintain the same intensity and whether we can match it. They look really fragile and can't keep the ball for more than three passes, but they are showing real desire and we have sometimes struggled against overly physical teams. Wilf may need to wear three pairs of shin pads!

United have been embarrassing, but they still have world class players, even if they're not playing like it. It would be a great end to the season to beat them comfortably.

Everton have blown it. 2 reds in their last game. Key players out for Thursday's game and we're keeping away from Merseyside tomorrow night so as not to be disturbed by fireworks. [Link] Ours for the taking.

Sunday's final game of the season at Selhurst will be a celebration and Man U will not be able to cope with the atmosphere.

6 points as good as in the bag.

 


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

The mathematician in me (and he's not much of one BTW) is struck by symmetry. WE gained 23 points from the first 19 games. One more point in the next 2 games will see us with 23 from the last 19. Sadly, that's about how well I think we'll do in the last 2 games. Hope I'm wrong.

Out of interest, would 8th qualify for the Europa Conference League? Won't Liverpool's Cup win give a Europa League spot to the 7th placed team?

Ending the season in the top ten would do me.

There is a strong possibility of finishing the season with a positive goal difference, something I am sure Palace haven't achieved before in the Premier League

I think we seem to be in agreement on this one!

Trust Ten Hag to be in place for our match. What a con.

No
We only get 2 Europa league places as we have 4 CL places. Only the top 7 will get European football next season.

Although don't forget, we have three days to prepare for the Man U game after Everton. From what I can see, they have a full week. Could well play a part.
