I have been a member of this site for what is probably 20 years. I have watched and supported Palace for 60 years. Regrettably I am going to be leaving this site in a few days time. (Yes I know I won't be missed).

Living out of London for the last 50 years I have always enjoyed finding any Palace chat I can with fellow supporters. This site has been wonderful for that. Regrettably, the last few years I believe this site has changed, that as we have had season after season in the top division significant numbers of people here seem to have lost all sense of reason and all connection with reality.

In my view this site should be about pleasure and enjoyment, sharing the ups and downs of supporting Palace with all the other lunatics like me. Instead it has become a whingefest, especially at transfer window time. "Why doesn't Parrish open his wallet?". "why don't we buy a,b,c,.......................z?", "why have we not unloaded s*** player a,b,c....?", and on and on.

There is no pleasure here on this site for me now. I will wish you all well.

Up The Palace!!!

As with all such sites one witnesses a smorgasbord of opinions, vacuous platitudes and rhetorical panache.On occasions high-grade waffle is interspersed with execrable bile,declamatory posts and members lacerated, facing shot and shell.

However one is also subjected to great bouts of insight and knowledge, humour and positivity and contributions which essay great wells of oratory.

I made the decision twice to take a sabbatical from HOL concluding that I had become a varmint and not adding any value to this cherished site, however I was honoured and humbled to receive enquiries as to my well-being and messages of support much to my surprise.
Should I be of this mindset again, I will take the same course of action as I have no desire to outstay my welcome.

Good luck but what do you actually want fans to talk about if they canít voice their opinions. If you think the palace threads are a bit rough ; take a look at the news and politics thread. Great fun for the thick skinned holer.

Yes there are some plonkers on the site, and yes there are some annoying posts. However, I think the site also gets some very reasoned, educated and intelligent contributions alongside some of the "lesser" offerings.

Having viewed some similar forums relating to other clubs I am actually quite impressed with the overall standard of postings.

The HOL is a whole life tariff, as is being a Palace supporter.

Don't think you can wriggle out of it by death, either.

Heíll be back. The HOL is basically therapy to share the pain with all the other long standing sufferers. Without it heíll go mad.
