Stop Being a Niasse-hole, Dad…

Every year we tell ourselves it will be different, but the cycle is vicious and familiar. There is a wonderful moment about a week before every season starts, where the majority of Premier League clubs are brimming with wide-eyed optimism. The shiny new signings paraded in their club’s new fifth

Frank De Goer? Frank De Going? Frank De Gone?

The world of football has always been a little bit mad. However this year, it seems that madness has been scaled up a notch onto a new level of bonkers. Players moving for transfer fees in the hundreds of millions, signing contracts worth half a million pounds a week, with

Start As We Don’t Mean To Go On

I was at Selhurst Park yesterday. It was my first visit in nearly three years. It was my Dad’s in nearly four. This summer we decided to purchase our first ever season tickets. Block Y of the Arthur, where we always sit. It was a dream come true when they

From Stress to Safety In Three Minutes

Three minutes. That’s all it took for the Palace players to ease the tension and take massive strides towards hard earned Premier League survival. Relegation was never an option in their minds, they knew they had one job to do, and they went about their work with aplomb, never fluctuating,

The Palace Magic Returns

Welcome back to another (slightly late) edition of our Fan Chat feature. It’s been a while since I last wrote for you, lots of University work is to blame. However, since my last article in early March, Palace have picked up a string of excellent results, the pinnacles of which

He’s Just Too Good For You…. And Us

An efficient Big Sam style victory over Watford makes it three games, four goals and three clean sheets on the bounce. The first time since the Pulis days that Palace can boast such effective rearguard action which bodes well as the season enters its twilight period. Plaudits are rightly going

Too Little Too Late?

Welcome back to another edition of our Fan Chat feature, which comes off the back of two wins and two clean sheets in a row, which for Palace, is something of a miracle. Both performances were professional, deserved and overall, looked very promising. The problem is, could it all be

If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It

It may have taken a bit longer than expected, but the Allardyce effect is starting to take hold at Palace. When all hope was seemingly lost following the rout at the hands of Sunderland, two wins, and two clean sheets ahead of another small break has put our favourite strugglers

You Gotta Have Faith

It’s very difficult to take solace from anything about our performances over the last 14 months, it’s been a miserable time to be a Palace fan. Watching our demise can be likened to Aston Villa fans watching their team last season, and our awful performances have merited the few points

Liberating Weekend Ends So Let The Fight Begin

It was a weekend like no other. There was no build up of dread over the course of the preceding week. There didn’t seem to be too much despondency or sign of a hangover following another anemic display at the Britannia (or whatever it’s now called) last Saturday. Perhaps it
