Don’t We Have Enough To Complain About?

Currently, Palace sit in a precarious position in the Premier League. In 17th position, one above the relegation zone on goal difference. We have many challenges facing us in the lead up to the end of the season. There are many points we could be discussing such as who to

My Plan For The Beautiful Game

Like many of you, I endured the Swansea game and upon it’s conclusion I felt a mixture of resignation and anger at a range of people. So this morning, during my morning constitutional, I started to think about how I would change football for the better if I were to

Goodbye 2016 And Good Riddance

Just a day or two left and hopefully the nightmare will be over. Yes, 2016 and all the misery that it brought with it will be consigned to the anals annals of history. There isn’t anyone in my circle of acquaintances who isn’t happy to say goodbye to 2016 for

Yes, You Are A Bigger One Than I Am

So, you think you are a bigger one than I am? This is a common expression thrown around when Palace fans start bickering on social media and well, unless you mean talking like an idiot, you are wrong! But no, the people throwing that expression around are talking about how

It Wasn’t Like That In My Day – Part 3

In this, the final part of my series, I’ll be rounding up some other aspects of football which we’ve lost since the Premier League reinvented football. For example, have you ever wondered why pundits refer to some players as a ‘number ten’ or an ‘old fashioned number nine’? Then read

It Wasn’t Like That In My Day – Part 2

In my previous article for TEB, I moaned explained how since the formation of the Premier League football players have gained a higher sense of self worth. How players, in particular flair and attacking players, think more and more that the team revolves around them rather than the collective unit
