Yes I want us to stay up and yes I do believe we will stay up. Maybe Dyche can breathe life into Everton but the other teams below us but Forest and Wolves plus the bottom 3 are all in negative goals and above -14, will they really pick up the points and the goals to stay up?

My big worry is the financials, have we put away the money for rebuilding the main stand (I heard we had) and the loss while the rebuilding is going on and the the current inflation is also covered then great (I think that the lack of new players is the reason for that).

 


Enjoying getting up later and not having someone who knows better than me (apart from the missus of course).

So you'd be happy to be back in the championship with the loss of £100m+ of PL revenue and back to 10-13k attendances...sod that. As an established PL outfit of the last 10 years we should have a strong enough and balanced squad by now to be protecting that revenue stream, how many championship sides would want to be in our position - all of them.

In my view we should f*vk the new stand off for the time being and plough some of that money (assuming we have some) into sorting the squad out. The new stand can be done later and perhaps in stages so it at least looks like the club is moving Selhurst forward...but squad strength is what is required because without it we will end up back in the championship.

Not happy, but Iíd still be looking forward to next season come August if we did go down, because Iím a palace fan whether weíre playing Liverpool or Barnsley. Of course Iíd love to stay in the premier league, spending money on top players, but it just gets a bit tedious fans who have no clue how our finances are and wouldnít have any idea how to run a football club keep bleating on about us not being run properly or not spending enough money. At least if we did go down it would probably get rid of that lot

I for one would certainly NOT be filled with glee and certainly NOT looking forward to playing in the Championship after a decade in the PL.Reality would really set in when the fixtures are published and when one see a plethora of empty seats in the ground.

I donít think we are at risk of relegation this season, I feel very confident about that.
Next season however is a concern. I understand we have a lot of experienced players out of contract this summer who are on big contracts (Zaha, McArthur, Tomkins, Luka , perhaps this will reduce the wage bill enormously.

We experienced the same in 2021 when Patrick arrived and we recruited well. So if we do the same again this summer Iíd be happy. The biggest worry is if there is no plan and we have no funds. If thatís the case then we are in trouble next season. Especially if wilf and McArthur (I know he has been injured in recent years but he has been a great player for us and offers a lot off the field as well) are not replaced

I can handle relegation as a worst case scenario, but club financial turmoil is something we all hope is left in the past!

3 of our next 6 games are against teams in the top 6.
We also play a resurgent A.Villa who have won 5 of their 7 PL games under Unai Emery.
We are also at Brentford who have not lost their last 6 PL games at home.

Fresh start, get rid of the dead wood and the over paid, empty seats that were probably only occupied by glory hunters or tourists, hopefully an exciting promotion challenge ahead of us, thereís always a silver lining

I appreciate that clubs have achieved instant promotion, Norwich,Burnley etc however Nottm Forest spent 23 seasons in the lower divisions before returning to the top flight, Leeds 16 seasons before their last promotion to the PL.

But the final run in is very doable and our recent form is not too shabby.

The cautionary example is not forest it's Stoke. 10 years too and then oblivion.

The complacency and arrogance is stunning.
A. We definitely won't go down.
B. If we go down/let's go down, we will come straight back up !!
The championship is a pig of a league to get out of.
So many games,full of failed Premiership sides who weaken every season financially if they don't come back up & as has been said, Dirty Leeds and Nottingham Forest took ages to come back.
Our status in the Premiership should have been borne in mind in this window.

If you want a laugh go to the Everton fans forum, typical scouse humour, they are not a happy bunch. The only signing they can look forward to is Andre Ayew on a free.

Apparently they offered to take Sarr on loan until the end of the season, Watford just laughed.

Having said all that Dyche is a good manager if he get can't a tune out of the current squad no one can.

Agree with all your points, but I wouldn't put accepting relegation (which I don't think will happen) down to complacency and arrogance based on the belief that we'll come straight back up.

While I think the chances of relegation are slim and none, if we did go down I wouldn't be that bothered not because I think we'd be promoted the following year but because I simply wouldn't miss the cesspit of the PL. It's an awful league; utterly pointless. 14 clubs exist only to make up numbers so 6 or 7 "bigger" ones can generate additional revenues.

I support and watch CPFC, not who we're playing. Put me in a competitive, honest, league where we have a chance of success (NOT guaranteed success) and I'll be happy watching football every week. Put me, for instance, watching Palace at Blackburn, Burnley, or Birmingham City; local teams whose supporters care about their clubs instead of being surrounded by plastics at the Etihad and you won't find me crying.

I've seen Palace in Division 3, Division 2, Division 1, and the PL. This s***ty, money-obsessed, selfish, plastic excuse for a league we're in now is by far the least pleasurable I've seen us be involved in. But hey, that's just me.

Yep; two games unbeaten. A run that will be extended to three on Saturday.

 


Palace since 19 August 1972. Palace 1 (Tony Taylor) Liverpool 1 (Emlyn Hughes)
