Tonight just exposed our entire identity and existence unfortunately, weíre a club lacking any coherent plan and/or ability to spend.

Weíve once again had to change things dramatically as we plummeted south with an underfunded and very thin squad. With a few injuries weíre reduced to a mid table championship side just now without Wilf to carry us. No new manager bounce, a sincere lack of goals and points. I can barely remember what a Palace win feels like let alone any enjoyment and positivity amongst the fan base.

If weíre lucky enough to survive this season, and it will just be luck, something dramatic will have to happen in the summer. Iím not massively hopeful of our survival. Equally not quite resigned to relegation yet but itís a sincere possibility. Chickens roosting I fear. Over a decade in the PL and nothing but an FA Cup final some years ago to show for it. An improved ground and European football? Perhaps our summer transfer budget was spent on Crack C0caine?

Thatís the best I can muster for a hysterical whine atm

We were the biggest spenders in January window, so thats just not correct.
This season has been blighted by injuries to key players, there is no disguising it.

I do think our performances have improved but the final third is still pathetic. Just listened to Glasner interview on bbc and have to say I agree with it all. I donít think Bournemouth were better than us or deserved to win and they only had that one chance. On our side we had multiple overloads in their final third and just f***ed each one up with a poor decision (Eze not passing to Mateta or Hughes passing to Eze rather than going right). The positive there is that under Roy I think Bournemouth probably have more chances and we have less. The result is still the same but there is some improvement there. Decision making has to improve

This side can't play two games in quick succession.
Eze is the most over rated player at the club.
A nothing season with plenty for Glasner to do in preparation for the next one.

Trying not to be too harsh on my countryman: Ok, we've been unlucky at times in the last 5 games (late goals, extra injuries, nothing on the bench to change much during the game).
On the other hand, 4 of the 5 games were against Bournemouth, Luton, Nottingham and Burnley, all not exactly Barcelona. It doesn't get much easier in the PL when you look at the names. And his favoured system. Well, as much as you'd expect players of a certain quality to be able to adapt to a different system, you'd expect a good manager to have an alternative up his sleeve that takes into account the resources available. No average cook would attempt to prepare a "Full English" when only rolls, butter, jam and honey are available and is restricted to 15 minutes to prepare breakfast. So OG is not entirely irresponsible, although I'm far from branding him a failure just yet.

This season has been well and truly woeful but it could have been a lot worse only for point deductions and 3 really poor promoted sides.

If the season stopped now Luton still wont catch us.

I thought the game turned on substitutions. Bournemouth had credible options we didn't, partly down to injuries and partly due to lack of squad depth.
As has been mentioned Ozoh at the back was an awful decision. If he wanted Lerma back to midfield, which I could understand, then use Tompkins. To be fair Hughes was ok last night but maybe fading.
We just haven't adapted to the 5 sub strategy.
Who knows where further points are coming from. West Ham on a bad day? Villa on the beach? Personally I'd just like to enjoy a match thinking we had a chance.

I think these are the 2 key points. We have a paper thin squad. It canít play 2 games in a week or compete in more than one competition. If you are going to run on this basis you canít afford to carry sick notes who are injured for more than half a dozen games a season. As it is we have a squad where probably 4 or 5 players are continually injured that then has to be bolstered by kids.

Clear out is needed. Get rid of the players who canít hack it and that includes Olise Iím affraid to say.

Part of me is so annoyed at Parish and his 'just tweak things to avoid relegation' pathetic approach that I wouldn't mind seeing Palace relegated just to p1ss him off. How many seasons have we 'just, by the skin of our teeth', avoided the drop? Joel Ward (God bless him) still starting after all these years! We've seen what Munoz does haven't we? It's not rocket science! We've been identifying the two or three gaps we need attending for yonks. Solanski... We apparently could have got him on loan FFS? But we didn't? Even Zaha wasn't the out-and-out dedicated striker we needed (but he saved our backsides anyway). I am sick of this sh1te! Last season, last few games, we all know we only needed: a Solanski, a Munoz, and not much else. PLENTY of funds to more than cover this. But, NO oh f**king NO. So now, we're watching this boring drivel trying to get a point to...who? F**KING B-MOUTH! And you know what? Before watching that game, I wasn't even expecting any more. What happened (non-dedicated strikers like Eze getting chances but failing to score) was what I predicted and expected. I only watched to see guys like Wharton developing. FU Parish.

Yup. Which points the finger straight at Parish & Co. If we look at the 'EPL Injury table' we will find that every team has to manage with similar amounts of injured players out. Parish runs a business? He knows that he has to have a pool of staff and others to call on when sick. So, why does this happen every season? Chance? Bad luck? Or design? My original charge remains: that Parish organises things to 'just' keep us above the relegation zone. He ain't kidding me. He may kid many others. But he doesn't kid me. "Oh? Oh dear? Oh look what's happening! Oh sh1t! We're being unlucky again with injuries! What rotten luck! Oh sorry fans, we can't challenge for Europe again! Oh, Boohoohoo...! Oh Waaahhhhhhhhhhh!! I'm in tears! (he-he! silly CPFC fan c*nts!). Maybe next year my beautiful CPFC supporters???? He-he-he...!

Dreadful, bossed by Bmouth in the first half, midfield got back in it in the second
Some disappointing play out there, I can only assume Eze reads his own press, always trying to beat just one more player
For all his skill with the ball, where is he without the ball, no one is going to buy him
TBF that for the coaches to change and it seems to be getting worse not better

Poor old Ayew, everyone loves a trier but seriously apart from getting freekicks what does he offer

As for Schluup, I can only assume he had bloody good dinner before the game

Olly, "If you don't score a goal you can't win." We are lucky to have such genius

I with the upcoming games its hard to see where the nexxt points are coming from unless Fulham have another day off

Its between us and Luton and they have a worse injury list, I can't see them getting 8 points to catch us but if they do........

Itís likely to be one win in 7 games for Glasner after the Man C and Liverpool games.
This follows long winless periods under Vieira and Hodgson in recent seasons.

This tells me that the players arenít quite good enough.

Weíve lost Zaha and added Lerma and recently added Wharton and Munoz, but otherwise there has been no major changes in outfield personnel.
Thereís no point in referring to Ďwhen all our best players are fit we will be fineí because that so rarely happens.

Our last three managers are different characters using different tactics and ,while itís easy to point the finger at them , youíre only as good at the tools at your disposal.

We have a handful of very good players but overall have a paper thin squad which has been exposed this season.
Weíve beaten poor Burnley and Sheffield United sides twice to give us 12 points.
Otherwise we have really struggled to put teams away.

All this make you realise how good Zaha was.
He kept us in the Premier for years.
He is sorely missed now.
Without our injured players we are clearly not good enough.
Eze with all his skills is not quite Zaha.
Wilf won us matches.
