Back from Chelsea and had to post

What has happened to our squad? Zaha looks frustrated playing right wing… schlupp is just absolute dog s**t too scared to make a forward pass… this playing out from
the back is becoming painful to watch week in week out half the time the ball ends up with the opposition before we’ve even made it to the halfway line!

Ok we had a couple of decent chances today but I can’t for the life of me understand why we insist on playing like Man City by trying to pass the ball into the oppositions box… we really need somebody who’s not scared to take a shot like Decoures today!

From an outside view, Palace have no fight, no grit, no determination. The end is in sight.

SP,in his infinite wisdom,seems to think we need a couple of loan signing and everything will come up smelling of roses,when we are now,given our forthcoming fixtures,in serious trouble and probably,favourites together with Bournemouth,to go down.

You get what you deserve in this league - & it is just not possible to keep on trying to compete on the cheap - even a horrible little club like Bournemouth attracted outside new investment recently.
We have had 10 years in this league now - are we any bigger or established at this level now in that time ?? Methinks not.

I know we have limitations, so there is no perfect fix within the squad.

But I think Hughes deserves to play instead of Schlupp. If we had 2 Doucourés we would have a chance of finding some authority in midfield. Hughes seems to he the nearest fit in that regard.

I also think we need to persevere with either Eduoard or Mateta as a focal point. I don't get what they've done so horrendously wrong compared to everyone else. I know they have underwhelmed, but my God, so have the alternatives. Today I was wondering whether Edouard was actually signed to replace Wilf, given his preference for the inside left position.

I thought we were okay today. But let's be honest, when that goal went in, did a single Palace fan genuinely believe we could equalise? I used to be so confident that we had it in us to give a bloody nose to the elites, but now I have so little expectation.

Those two changes are exactly what most people must be thinking. I don't think it'll improve us drastically but it might at least provide us with some bite and protection in midfield and the threat of someone running in behind the opposition's defence. It's frustrating to watch. Last season seems like we over performed obviously with the help of Gallagher and now we're really struggling in the second year of transition from Roy's old boys. We're coming unstuck after not continuing to invest in the new squad.

I'm really frustrated by Eze. He seems to get the fans highest rated player on BBC Sport for some unknown reason. He just contributes so little.

So many creative players but no interest in moving the ball forward with any type of urgency.

I don't understand why we are in the middle of a transfer window but nothing appears to be happening to improve the squad? What does it take to get a reaction from our owners? Is it make do and drop down to the Championship while the mythical new stand takes up all the available cash?

I am becoming reconciled to relegation as much as l don't wish it on us,l think the manager has lost his way completly,why we set up as we do with no centre forward just signals to the opposition we are running scared every match,this continual prattling around in our own half thinking we are man city is not working,we can't hit a barn door,Ayew might be lively but doesn't matter how much running and chasing you do it don't equal goals,we need some battlers in midfield,not Milo or schlupp they are both clapped out,if we don't get a grip pdq we are gone and that will be a disaster! It is so very disappointing after all the hard work that has gone before!!!

It wasn't that bad. Eze really didn't do much though and neither did Schlupp. Hughes was better. Edouard pretty useless when he came on and it is weird how Mateta jumps so late that he always misses headers. But we had some good chances against a relatively weak Chelsea side and overall it was close.

If Gallagher had been on our side we would have won that, quite convincingly.

Not sure how you came to that conclusion.

Even 'Mr C.Bait' has gone very quiet.
