Alternative 2015/16 season awards

June 22 2016

Alan Pardew

Alan Pardew

We celebrate a series of standout moments from Crystal Palace's 2015/16 campaign with these tongue-in-cheek awards.

Dance move of the season

We have to start with 'snake hips' Alan Pardew's stupid dance after Jason Puncheon's cup final goal. Which led to some terrific Vines including...



But how could we forget Joe Ledley's moves for Wales!



Worst refereeing decision

Christian Benteke's disgraceful dive to win Liverpool a late penalty at Selhurst Park.



Most heartfelt message to fans

Damien Delaney was gutted to be on the wrong end of the awful display of cheating.



Goal celebration of the season

Jason Puncheon shedding a tear after finally scoring against Norwich.



Dig of the season

Alan Pardew on Neil Warnock when the former Palace boss said striker Charlie Austin would be a good signing for the Eagles.

He said: "Neil Warnock was the manager here and he didn’t do very well so I am not really interested in his opinion." Ouch!



Flop of the season - Alex McCarthy

There's a few nominees for this award: Patrick Bamford and arguably Bakary Sako and Emmanuel Adebayor but Alex McCarthy wins it as the others didn't cost a transfer fee.

Alan Pardew paid QPR a fee worth up to £3.5million for the keeper to be Palace's new number one. After claiming: "Alex will make the England team if he gets a start" the goalkeeper produced a number of howlers and ended the season third choice.



C**t of the season

Mark Clattenburg loves being the centre of attention and loves to piss off Palace fans. The referee got Dwight Gayle's dismissal for a second yellow card horribly wrong against West Ham. Then in the FA Cup final pulled back play when Connor Wickham was clearly through on goal against Man Utd in a shocking decision.



Beard of the season

It was a tough call and we almost gave it to Mile Jedinak, but Joe Ledley's facial fuzz gets the nod. Just.



Chant of the season

Yohan Cabaye has got his own chant, nicely sung by this gentleman...



Rant of the season

Lee Chung-yong speaking to the media in his native South Korea thinking that the quotes won't get back to the UK... Or did he?

He said: "Pardew is very smart in training but he’s too hot tempered in matches, so he even forgets how many substitutes are left.

"He told me to warm up, then we used all three substitutes, so I sat on the bench again. Five minutes later, he told me to warm up again so I told him there was no substitutes left. He just said: ’Oh, sorry.’

"Pardew runs the team with very short-term vision. We have a great squad but he plays the same players again and again until someone gets injured."

Someone's on their way out...



Selfie of the season

The much-loved Yannick Bolasie raced over to the Palace supporters after the FA Cup win over Tottenham Hotspur.



Signing that failed to live up to the hype

Emmanuel Adebayor was supposed to get our wretched league form back on track with a hatful of goals...
