Lol, this thread... ass licking the premier league like it's the be all and end all.

Sorry if the arm chair fans wanna see Kane take corners each week and think the champ is beneath them - yeah, real working mans club.

I'd support palace in any league.

But let me say this, after pulis saved us, we had the oppertunity to hold the line.. invest in a decent side that would cope well in the championship but also give survival a go and take the pen money and run.

How much did our academy cost? 20 million... boom you invest the prem earnings on the academy and get that ball rolling.

You go down, no big deal.. you have parachute payments, a decent squad, an academy on the horizon and you go again.

The dream painter?? you asked what the dream was... success.

What's the dream to a league 1 club? What's the dream to a Sunday league team? What's the dream for palace?

Arsenal balanced the books for years, but look at the foundation now.

Palace isn't the premier league... it isn't anything, without it's fans... and right now... look at the fans.. never been more fragmented, jaded and deluded... careful what you wish for.

 


This was once a quality forum....

This is the craziest football league in the world now, it taken over from the bulls*** that happens in Spain. How can you have our club who have not spent a single f***ing penny compete with Chelsea who have spent 500 million?

I don’t want us to break the bank and put ourselves in the mire, but I would like to think we can compete with the likes of the Bournemouths of this world in getting a player or two.

We have had 10 years of Premiership football and we have now ground to a standstill. If I was PV and had so little backing I would leave for sure, no question about it. Im Waiting for pelters on this, but deep down you all think the same…..

Oh and I have followed Palace for over 50 years now before anyone wants to give me loyal supporter bollocks!

Therein lies the “elephant in the boardroom” IMHO..!!

Parish whilst fabulously rich in our terms - just doesn’t have the financial resources to play in todays crazy world of the EPL - where a minimum of £100M investment is required year on year just to keep up/maintain position - let alone “kick on” and progress..!!

Do I agree with it - no I don’t think it’s very sad it’s got to this stage - do I think it’s sustainable equally no - certainly not in its current format.

IMO - FFP got to be stricter - salary and spending caps got to come in - otherwise - we’ll be just playing in a league - where the top 6 are playing their own competition- whilst the rest of us are just also rans just trying to achieve/maintain obscurity - whilst having to invest £100M for the privilege.

Arguably we are already there - so no-one will do a Leicester again..!!

Before anyone says it - I’ve no interest in supporting a City, Chelsea, Arsenal etc.. I’m 56 and been Palace all my life - born down Holmesdale Road into a family of Palace fans that has continued with my own sons.

But I played in and trained football teams in the belief we had a chance to compete - otherwise what’s the point..?? Where’s the incentive..??

Look it’s as simple as this as fan you’ve got to at least be able to “dream” - that’s what inspires us - if that is taken away where’s the fun..??

This is why I believe things have got to change to reinvigorate competition and allow us the “staple diet” as a football fan - the right to dream and believe it could be us..!!

COYP

Even you are casually using the vernacular of the system that you despise. It's not an investment of £100m a year, it's expenditure of £100m - on inflated wages and transfer fees for players. It's like when politicians say "we've invested £x billion in this, that or the other" or "if we were in government, we would invest even more £billion than the current lot". No you won't; you'll SPEND that money on behalf of the taxpayer and you'll probably waste a fair old chunk of it to boot.

 


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

I wouldn't worry about anyone quoting that at you as it tends to be the response of people who's waist line is bigger than their IQ

For what it's worth I agree with you

Can’t compete with Chelsea’s millions? Brighton are doing a decent job of it this season.

#metoo.

Also ME, I recently fit back into 30" jeans however my doctor says any aspirations/efforts to fit into a waistline smaller than my IQ could have severe health ramifications so I'll excuse myself from that barometer.

 


Now Zaha's got a bit of green grass ahead of him here... and finds Ambrose... not a bad effort!!!!

Jeez, I’d need aspirating if I tried to get into 30” jeans. Last time they fitted I was about 20 and 12 stone. Needless to say 38”s are my go to these days but I do search through TKMaxx for large 36”s.

Well said mate, I agree and am getting totally pissed off. I’ve supported Palace for 40 years and would support them whatever league they were in. However we are bottom of the Premier league expenditure table since last summer. Championship teams come up and spend more. The dream was to get to the Premier league but don’t give up and go out on a whimper.

This is the craziest football league in the world now, it taken over from the bulls*** that happens in Spain. How can you have our club who have not spent a single f***ing penny compete with Chelsea who have spent 500 million?

If we were non-league it would be even better. We could stand and drink. Wouldn't cost much and our Wembley could be the FA Trophy.
