    Football Thread 2018/19

    Weirdly you would be better playinng Palace away, our home form has us 19th in the table but our away form 6th, 14 goals scored at home (of which I think 8 have been penalties) in 17 games but 29 goals in 18 games away. This is because we only play effectively against teams that attack us (we are incredibly good at soaking up pressure and counter attacking), stick a load of men behind the ball and hand us the lions share of possession and we don't know what to do with the ball and fail consisetently to break down a defence. In short,park the bus and nick a goal on the break (and send Brighton down)

    By who? All we ever hear is people saying he's overated, moaning about his diving, saying he'd ever make it a at top club. I can't think of the last time I read much effusive about him before the latest transfer talk. Palace fans are quite realistic about his capabilities as a player, but he's still one ofthe most salable assets we have and is our "big fish in a small pond" that skill-wise stands a head and a shoulder above the standard of most of our players, in Palace-land we only get to see a couple of players of his calibre come through per-decade, it's a big deal for us so maybe we get a bit more excited than those that have endless access to this standard of player. Having to read endless guff and articles about the latest (in a line of 50) 19 year old Chelsea/Man U/Liverpool starlet, who after 10 loans to lower divisons subsequently ends up at Crewe (no offence to Crewe) is far more dull/repetitive/predictable to my eyes, but different strokes I guess.

    Zaha get's the headlines, but Wan-Bissaka has been the standout this season, he's had countless world class wingers in his pocket. We'll likely lose him in the summer for a healthy fee and whilst selling him to raise cash to build the team is probably the better option over Zaha it'll be a shame to lose such a talent. Looking forward to having a nose at Arsenal Fans TV later!

    There's no conflict whatsoever, however many own goals it takes to send them down! That said, we've been so shit of late that even with us trying I'd expect a Cardiff win.

    Weezer. Does anyone like them?

    They've done an NPR Tiny Desk concert, including Longtime Sunshine, a track that was meant to close Pinkerton and a reminder of just how good even their discarded output was back then. A version was included on the Pinkerton special edition.

    Took the eldest to Palace v Huddersfield, he seems to be a talisman for producing god awful games of football that we somehow manage to win. Good luck Huddersfield fans for next year, fair play to sp many of them for making the effort to come down, hopefully they'll get to see the traditional winning run that already relegated teams seem to go on.

    Don't worry Baggies, he's still available...

    He says he had a good time, and he loved seeing James Tomkins and James McArthur (his slightly odd choices for favourite players) in real life. At 5 he's borderline on concentration etc. and the last 20 minutes he disengaged, my eldest (7) loves it and had me sitting in the stands for an hour before kick off in freezing weather pre-Fulham. Both have gone from 0 - 100 in terms of interest in football the last 3 or 4 months, I'm delighted and looking to get a couple of season tickets next year so I can rotate taking them (and it sells the idea of a season ticket to my wife as bonding/1-2-1 time for them),I'm just glad I live near enough to get them invested but at the same time, making them Palace fans could be viewed as cruel and unusual punishment. I'd almost resigned myself that my only hope for a fellow football fan was number 3 (4 months old), so it's been a pleasant change.

    Same old bland excuses from Hodgson after an embarrasing showing in the M23 derby, he sets us up exactly the same home and away and it's completely ineffective at Selhurst park against any team that sticks a load of men behind the ball, utterly clueless. Taking nothing away from Brighton's 2 finishes, we really should have been able to get at them with the players we have. Murray's scoring in these games is of course inevitible. It was also my middle son's first Palace game (due to a mate dropping out), thakfully he doesn't seem too scarred.

    Given the balance of play Burnley should feel hard done by at 2-0 down to Palace, but Batshuayi's finish for the second was absolutely brilliant.

    The worst crimes in music

    This is both terrible and brilliant, Bradford's finest grime/chav/shit dance music crossover hit. One of them's called Clive (and he has the best bars)

    Apparently it was agreed by both clubs at kick off to decide the outcome on the day, interesting that it's an option (though understandable given the impact of a fixture build up at that level)

    The approriate benchmark is to use total cost to the club (including transfer fees), how much would it cost to buy a player of Ramsey's calibre if under contract? Knock that off and you've then got his true wage cost, it's no wonder more and more players are taking a gamble and runnning down their contracts.
