Palace In Perspective

They say that the FA Cup is not what it used to be. Somehow the magic of the cup has been lost. Was it because Manchester United pulled out and went to play in the short-lived ‘World Club Cup’ in Japan? Is it because teams rest many of their first team

Having missed a week on here, it is time to have a catch up.  Firstly a quick catch up on recent matches and then a festive piece that I hope you enjoy further down my article called “The Crystmas Story.” On Saturday 14th December myself and my mate Chris (@pengemypenge) went

A Christmas Gift Shop Keen followers of this column, both of you, will remember me telling you about the Crystal Palace Museum, found on the site of the original ground ‘The Nest’. http://theeaglesbeak.com/index.php/palace-in-perspective-4/ The Museum Shop is rather hard to find but is the ideal spot for a late Christmas

Time for another article about Tony Pulis and our fears and hopes for the next twenty odd games with the baseball capped hoofer/ relegation avoiding messiah (delete per your preference). Not here.  You must have seen enough of those by now. Instead I’m writing about Chris Hughton, the manager of Saturday’s

After around a month without a manager at Palace the club finally announced the appointment of Tony Pulis just after midday on Saturday. The appointment may not be every fans cup of tea but we can now take a deep breath and get on with the rest of the season. At the

We’re all a bit cross. Cross with each other. Every candidate for the manager’s job has aroused from some quarter or another, some of it more understandable than others.  Iain Dowie seems to have led the pack on this front, which is entirely understandable given his departure ‘up North’ to Charlton.

Yet again, a difficult article to write this week with Palace still in the wilderness without a manager to guide us through the obstacles ahead. It has been very difficult to keep up with the on-going speculation surrounding the vacant position at the club as well as the bookmakers odds
