Am I dreaming or did I actually see Jordan Ayew smile ?

When he is given his freedom Eze is a sensation.

He waited years for a chance but when he got it, wow, Johnstone
certainly took it and with less faffing about playing out from the back with him!

Isn't it funny that Vieira sank into a 'Hodgson model' and Roy actually showed what belief and motivation can do?

I need a lie down. Two more wins and we are safe.

We looked so fluent in second half but had to battle in the first and hang in there. What happened to Leeds? - their performance from the first half to the second half was unbelievable. They worked hard and denied us time and space on the ball for all the first half and then it was like they did not turn up in the second.
Eze and Olise had real end product today - hopefully a sign of good things going forward.
Happy as well Doucoure never looked like picking up a booking and we have establish some breathing space from the bottom 3.

When you look back on the first half you can see we had four clear moments where we beat them through the middle only to be fouled as usual, second half we clicked and managed to evade their attempts to stop us and then confidence overtook us. Teams find a way to frustrate good ball players and then ruin our entertainment.
I've been saying for years that our international side has been dumbed down by the very fact that players like our Zaha our allowed to be fouled left right and centre by bullying tactics coached and encouraged which just destroys their wonderful skills and our enjoyment.

Absolute rubbish, we should have had 6!

Eze and Olise - our dynamic duo. How long can we keep them?

So pleased for Ayew - one in the eye for all his critics on here.

Is anyone campaigning to keep Roy on a new 3 year contract?

Fabulous game and we played with flair again. Well done lads!

 


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

Derry did that and got the sack

No, Roy just has better players to play with.

Pure class and always will be, how on earth our fans can criticise him is beyond belief.

What has happened to Roy? The former Roy would have parked the bus when we got to 2-1.

Who cares! I admit I groaned and moaned when Roy was brought back. As usual I was wrong.

That 2nd half performance was sensational. The moral in the team must be in the stratosphere.

I dunno what Roy has done but it's a bl00dy miracle.

I was hiding before the sofa for most of the first half, fully expecting us to get annihilated. Second half, well, I just didn't see that coming!

Commentators earlier in the season said that Palace had "an array of attacking talent". Today, that attacking talent really showed themselves...

I am grinning akin to a Colgate toothpaste model.What a superlative second-half performance.
I just had a feeling that after lacerating Ayew he would score ! He was even smiling after the game!

In celebration,tonight I shall venture to a local Public House and imbibe some intoxicating liquid !!

Along with your 'giddy aunt' I hope ! Showing your age there Willo.

I do wonder if not having Zaha on the pitch is upping the others game. He does seem to wave his arms around a lot at the others, ala Ronaldo and Fernandes at Manure.

Admittedly a lot could happen in the weeks between and Zaha's return to fitness, but question for the panel:

"Who would you drop from today's side to make way for Wilf?"

He has now a team with some talent - rather than a lot of dross !

And back on planet earth and that other dimension I slipped into for an hour, I assume we actually did our usual and lost 1-0
